MLB Network’s Twitter page shared a tweet about Xander Bogaerts breaking up Chris Sale’s no-hitter bid.
The problem, however, is that MLB Network claims it was Bogaerts’ first ever big league home run. That actually is not true. He hit his first homer last season.
People on Twitter made sure they were aware of it.
These appear to be the new draft day caps.
According to New Era’s United Kingdom site, we have what appears to be the draft caps for this upcoming NFL Draft. These are labled “NFL Draft On Stage” caps.
All the caps feature the team logo in the front with the crown of the cap matching the team’s main color. The NFL Shield on the back of the crown is gray.
The one difference is the brim. Each cap’s brim feature designs that are team specific. They have both the team wordmark and the team logo on a gray brim.
For some teams like the Raiders and Lions, the brim works. But a team like the Ravens and 49ers, not so much.
What do you think of these new caps?
One thing that I am always reminded about when we do Jackie Robinson day in the big leagues is his impact on not only baseball, but in the world. You can imagine how hard it was for him to stand out and be the target of hate. Yet he knew that what he was doing was going to change the world.
Robinson believed that it was unfair for his skin color to his only identity — an unfair portrayal of who he is as a man. The racism that followed was tough but he knew that if he was able to succeed and be that pioneer, then more will follow and the times will change.
As we look at all the people wearing #42 today, we are reminded that our individuality is unique and it’s what makes this world great. Robinson had to do that when the rest of the world was against him. Honoring Robinson is great but we can’t lose what he meant to the game of baseball and the world.
Don’t be afraid to stand for something you believe that is right. Be strong, be humble and take on the challenges that come with it. Robinson reminds us that we can make a huge difference. The world can change and sometimes, it just takes one person to help show the way.
The Sharks are back in the playoffs and will take on the Kings. I went to Game 7 last year between these two and it was a heartbreaker. But I still believe in my Sharks.
They probably aren’t the best team and they haven’t played their best hockey yet. But when it comes to the playoffs, anything goes. Especially with this series against the rival Kings, it is expected to go the distance.
I hope I can get some time to go to one of these games. But with the Warriors-Clippers playoff meeting likely to take place also, I have to save up and figure out which series I want to go to more.
