What a very unfortunate hashtag.
I love throwback games. And when they are done right, they are a great sight to behold. In fact, this could be a very visually-pleasing affair. I’m all for it!
I could have looked this up years ago, but it was nice to see this video. I had always wanted to know what the deal was with the two guys. I thought it was cool that two fans ran on to the field to congratulate him.
So cool. So awesome. Something like this will never happen in baseball again.
New Braves batting practice cap.
Remember when the new batting practice caps were released and the Atlanta Braves got a lot of heat for their design?
It appears that the pressure to change the cap got to the team and they will not be going with the original design. Instead, they are going with the simple “A” logo for their batting practice cap.
This was something that a lot of people expected but until we actually saw it, it was just a lot of wondering whether or not the Braves would avoid potential disaster.
Is this racist?
It’s always been hard for me to really find a point of opinion when it comes to Native American names and image usage in sports. With the Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves and a ton more college teams using such names and logos, I want to feel that maybe we should put an end to it.
But then there are so many times when the Native Americans themselves say that it’s OK. For example, the Florida Seminoles have gained approval from the tribe themselves, so if they’re not offended, why should I be?
This comes on to this week’s latest buzz about the new batting practice cap for the Atlanta Braves, which revives a throwback logo and people are starting to talk again about it being racist. And to me, I think it does go along those lines. However, after reading this opinion piece, I’m starting to think a little different.
The great thing about Twitter is that it allows numerous people to publicly share their thoughts on anything. And just a few moments ago, recently retired baseball player Chipper Jones tells everybody that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have killed John F. Kennedy.
(He’s been on record about this before.)
