People need to be told to wear masks. People are so afraid to be doing things that the majority of other people are not doing that they would rather die than put a mask on. It is good the Department of Defense is mandating masks. If we could just get a leader say if you are outside of your home wear a mask.
That was awesome. I was there for that, my cousin (Sox fan) somehow got luxury box tickets for us up in LF.
Obviously it's an Orioles production but what's lost in that video is all the surrounding chaos. IIRC Longoria hit a game winning homer in Tampa to ice putting the Sox out of the playoffs for good. We did our part but some other things had to happen as well. I remember getting into the elevator with my cousin and seeing on my phone that Tampa had won minutes later. It was great.
I think it's just as brutal for the high spenders. Someone like Justin Turner is missing their age 35 season. You'd expect some falloff this year, with rapidly increasing chances of catastrophic decline thereafter. Nelson Cruz is missing his age 39 season; his fountain of youth will end eventually, the good stuff is only so good.
I think this whole thing hurts the Orioles much more than it does the Dodgers anyway. So much lost momentum in development, lost draft picks, less info for scouts, less years of control, less time to coach and develop guys like Adley. It's just extra brutal for rebuilding clubs.
See this article from Bleacher Nation. The field used by Guthrie, OK high school may be my new favorite baseball field. Dimensions something like 280-300-600-300-280, with a full football field in center. Reminds me a bit of old Exhibition Stadium in Toronto where there was most of a CFL field that stretched on for a long, long way behind CF and RC. I saw a game there in 1987, and Ben Oglivie hit a homer in that direction that may have rolled 500' on the AstroTurf. Might have been more fun if they just didn't put a fence there.
This also makes me recall a field I saw from a train in the Czech Republic 20 years ago. First, I was surprised to see a baseball field in the Czech Republic, but also that there was a gully or ravine about 30-40 feet behind first base. So the effective dimensions were something like 300-330-380-250-125.
I welcome any other entries you might have.
