We were there to meet Luis Tiant *and* watch Kyle Isbel break the Green Monster, all while wearing Jerry Garcia jerseys. This is how we do baseball roadtrips. We missed Dominican night but it was a model for community outreach and service. Nicky Lopez rocks both the bat and the scoreless 9th now that he’s a Hammer. Miguel passes Tony, and Seiya teaches us that mental health days are an important tool. Phillies fans try something new by supporting a struggling player and it seems to work! Good things in the minor leagues as the ATL High-A affiliate drops the problematic name and asks for suggestions. Tell them your ideas (or tell them our idea and suggest the Hammers!). 19 year-old Jackson Holliday has his third five-hit game, and 21 year-old Dylan Crews wastes no time in going 4-5 including a grand slam. Suspensions and fines were awarded for the CLE/CWS Fight Night, including the longest suspension doled out by MLB (6 to TA), and a successful appeal reducing Jose’s from three to two games. Orioles ownership unites fans and baseball broadcasters nationwide against them as Angelos pulls star play by play guy Kevin Brown for completely factually describing the improvement of the team over past years. Makes no sense, yes? But Kevin Brown has been freed via chants, t shirts, and public humiliation of John Angelos. US Women’s Baseball is cruising through Group A play, living up to their RTEFW motto. Thunder Bay, baby.
