    President Trump’s not fit for pinstripes, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio. The mayor slammed the New York Yankees for inviting “hatred to your pitcher’s mound” by allowing President Trump to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium next month. “After CONDEMNING racism, the next step isn’t inviting it to your pitcher’s mound,” de Blasio tweeted Saturday. “To the execs that have aligned with hatred, you are on the wrong side of history and morality,” he added. The mayor meanwhile praised Yankees and Washington Nationals players who knelt in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement before the national...

    The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to ask the commissioner of baseball to award the Dodgers the 2017 and 2018 World Series titles after Major League Baseball punished the Houston Astros for cheating and continues to investigate the Boston Red Sox for possible misconduct. The resolution, co-sponsored by Councilmen Gil Cedillo and Paul Koretz, originated after Commissioner Rob Manfred released a nine-page report on Jan. 13 detailing how the Astros used technology in violation of baseball rules to steal opposing teams’ pitching signs during the 2017 season. Both councilmen said the resolution is symbolic and represents a larger...

    MLB ^ | 2019 | Adrian Garro
    The wild thing about this particular Super Bowl matchup, though, is that the phenomenon of teams from the same cities facing off in two consecutive title games is very rare. By virtue of having Red Sox-Dodgers and Patriots-Rams both taking place in the 2018 (or 2018-2019 season), it marks the first time since Super Bowl III in 1969 that this has happened: Super Bowl III: Jets-Colts in January 1969, and then in October 1969 Mets-Orioles. Different seasons. Same calendar year.

    In a rare piece published Friday, the editors at The Boston Globe praised President Donald J. Trump for his leadership in recognizing Venezuelan National Assembly Juan Guaidó as the Latin American country's leader and his administration's condemnation of socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.  via Boston Globe:The Trump administration showed commendable leadership in Latin America this week by recognizing Juan Guaidó, the president of the Venezuelan National Assembly, as the country’s legitimate president, in a repudiation of the Nicolás Maduro regime. It was a rare foreign policy move in the right direction by an administration that has been marred by one blunder after...

    BOSTON (CBS) – Will the World Series champion Boston Red Sox visit President Donald Trump at the White House? Manager Alex Cora said that decision has not yet been made. Cora was asked if the team would make the trip if invited during his postgame press conference. “We’ll talk about it later on,” Cora said. Earlier this fall, Cora was critical of Trump’s comments about Puerto Rico, the native country of the Red Sox manager. White House visits have been the source of controversy during the Trump presidency. Trump called off the Eagles’ Super Bowl visit when it became evident...

    There was no debating the better team all year, and there was no debating the better team in this series. The 108-win Red Sox entered the postseason with more questions than the SATs while the Wild Card Yankees looked like a team nobody wanted to face this October. And yet it was the Sox who looked like juggernauts by the time the American League Division Series was over at Yankee Stadium late Tuesday night. Rick Porcello earned his first win in a playoff start, Christian Vazquez hit his first home run since June 26 and Chris Sale pitched out of...

    I actually don't care so much myself as I can't remember the last time I actually watched a ballgame. I've been to a few ballgames over the past few years as my company has luxury boxes at multiple stadiums in which we entertain important clients. But all we do at those games is drink heavily, eat lots of food and talk to each other without paying all that much attention to the game on the field. I used to be a fan. Back in the 1970s, as a boy, I used to go to Fenway Park all the time. I...

    Donald Trump was wanted by two pro Baseball teams. Not only does Trump know how to play hardball in the business world and as president of the United States, but it turns out he could play with the best of them in the baseball world. President Donald Trump was heavily scouted and wanted by two pro teams when coming out of his high school military prep academy to be a pro prospect. The Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies were keen to sign up the first basemen from NY Military Academy before he went off to college at Fordham...

    On this day in 1934, Washington Senator's backup catcher Morris "Moe" Berg's streak of 117 games in a row without committing an error comes to an end, setting an American League record. Berg wasn't your typical athlete: before signing with the Brooklyn Robins (they wouldn't become the Dodgers until 1932), he graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. magna cum laude in modern languages. Ted Lyons, Berg's teammate with the White Sox, would say that "he can speak seven languages but can't hit in any of them." Berg didn't have a great bat, but when every one of manager Ray...
