This weekend they held a free baseball clinic for over 200 kids from…

Baseball’s Best Teams Are Too Damn Good – FiveThirtyEight

Sunday, July 23, 2017

A week ago, I wrote about how both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros are in rare historical company this season. According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo power ratings — which measure a team’s strength at any moment — each is playing roughly as well as the fabled 1927 Yankees played. But this season’s top-heaviness extends well beyond just the Astros and Dodgers. Each member of MLB’s ruling class this season…

Daily notes: Pitcher and hitter rankings for Saturday – ESPN

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment Saturdays usually bring us plenty of afternoon baseball. That’s not the case this Saturday, though, as only two of the day’s 15 games feature an afternoon start time. It’s not a day filled with an overwhelming number of aces, either. Then again, fewer aces means more mid- and lower-level hurlers who will help us out on the hitting side, and that’s certainly…

For Seattle Sluggers, Beep baseball is serious stuff – The Seattle Times

Saturday, July 22, 2017

When Mike King approaches home plate for his turn to bat, a spotter will walk with him part of the way before the catcher finishes the job. Once King is in the batter’s box, he listens to the pitcher’s instructions for where he should stand. In Beep baseball, a league for blind, low-vision and legally blind players, the pitcher and batter work together. And King, who is legally blind, says…
