Ashley Kelly is the real hero of the Shohei Ohtani deal but we break it down anyway because it lets Patti do math and reference the Disney Prince, Betts, Freeman, and Yamamoto, but not the dog. Pottymouth leans into the CWS history with Cuban player and selects Oscar Colás Leon, while Patti picks brand new teammate and exceptional dad, veteran catcher Max Stassi. Our STL bfs include Pottymouth’s choice of Masyn Blaze Winn for all the mom reasons, and Patti goes for her second Nolan of the season, Nolan Gorman. Justine Siegal takes Baseball for All on the road, with tournaments in Costa Rica, Hawaii, and the Leighton Accardo Invitational with the Arizona Peaches. We encourage you to support her great work providing opportunities for girls to play baseball. Catch up on the LVBP Pepsi Jonrón Derby where you’ll see lots of familiar bats. Our Police Blotter visits the LA County DA’s office, and touches on the Tampa Bay Hostages. Congrats to the family of Larry Doby, as he receives the Congressional Gold Medal posthumously, on the occasion of his 100th birthday.
