Minor league baseball, but I'll put this here anyway.

History made in Salem Red Sox broadcast booth

SALEM, Va. (WDBJ7) This season, history is being made at Hayley Toyota Field in Salem. The Red Sox are the first team in professional baseball history to have an all-female broadcast team.

Image

"For me this is showing up and doing my job," said Melanie Newman. "This is what I’ve been doing for a decade and kind of Ostrich in the sand, never really peak out to go oh this is different. Oh no body else is doing this.”

Newman has been joined by Suzie Cool for select games this season. Both are quick to give some credit to others for helping them get to where they are today.

"It's very, very surreal every time you’re up there because at the end of the day I get to call baseball games, and that’s my job," Cool said.

"I don’t want to have this job because I’m a female. I don’t want to have any job because I’m a female. I want to have the job because my resume backs it up, and my body of work presents that,” Newman said.

Both women have served as inspiration to boys and girls in Southwest Virginia looking to follow in their footsteps.

As the season winds down, both Newman and Cool are looking towards the future to see what it may hold in their professional careers. Newman says while rejection is part of the process, she's learned to embrace the moments she's heard the word 'yes'.

She uses her story to send a message to others.

"If this is something you’re passionate about it, don’t let someone else tell you otherwise,” she said.

Good for them.

I may be in the minority, but I like the Sunday Night Baseball broadcast including Mendoza on ESPN.

Do the Twins get 300 HR's or better this year?


Yes or No.

David Glass bought the Royals for $94 Mil in 2000. Less than 20 years later, he's about to sell them for about $1.1 Billion.

If you can't make money running a Big Four franchise, I don't know what to tell you.

Question - do the Royals own their stadium? And what about TV? I'm just trying to figure out what the Mets could be worth.

Twins break the MLB homerun record!


Garver homered to left (402 feet). (268th HR sets MLB record for most in a season)

It was perfect timing.

I never expected anything from them this year. Their post- All Star game hot streak was fun to watch, but I never thought they were legit playoff contenders.

And after the **** I watched last night I can make a seamless transition to football without missing baseball at all. (full disclosure - I need to pay attention to baseball in general until Sunday because of my fantasy baseball championship)

Ok, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this before, it’s the top of the 4th inning in the A’s / Astros game. A’s batting with no outs. They have 17 runs but more importantly every starter already has at least 2 hits and scored at least 1 run. I wonder if that has ever happened before in such a short time (9 outs)


(And 8 of the 9 have at least 1 rbi)

287 to 286

Well over a month ago I told my neighbor the MLB wasnt going to let this fly and lo and behold. Seems like the Twins have been in the position to hit a 100 grand slams and failed on 92 of them!
