    for Chris Davis? Eight years at $184 million for Jason Heyward? Seven years for $153 million for Jacoby Ellsbury? Sure, the Yankees overpaid Aroldis Chapman signing him to a five year deal worth $86 million, a deal that shattered the previous record for any relief pitcher. But the point is, they intended to overpay him. Resigning Chapman after dealing him to the World Series champion Chicago Cubs was a priority for Brian Cashman, and after getting it done, this is a signing that should be…

    Playing first base, I always admired the position at the center of the field, the pitcher. It seemed that games could be won and lost based solely on that position. I both craved and shied away from the pressure. As I reflect on my softball days, it seems that the relationship between pitcher and catcher was the single most important factor for a successful team. The pitcher pours her heart out on the mound, but every effort, ball, strike or in the dirt is carefully received by the catcher.…

    Instantly my heart started to race and I could just feel the energy has taken over my body and mind. I ran down the baseball field and just stared like it was the first thing I had ever seen. Finally my dad caught up to me and he asked “what position do you want to play”? Infield, that’s where the action is dad! From that day on, starting each spring for nine years, I was outside practicing to be the best player I could be. Still to this day, even though I don’t play baseball anymore, nothing…

    and a lot of players; some people might even call it boring. But to me is a sport full of action and really tough plays where most of the action takes place at the home plate. This is because here stands the batter waiting anxiously for the pitcher to deliver the pitch, so he can try to hit it. In television those professional players make it seem very easy to hit the ball and do home runs, yet in real life a person can have some trouble hitting the ball. Mostly those players are able to hit…

    morning. The battle for the rings softball tournament. All morning I have been playing at 3rd base. I'm the starting 3rd baseman.

    Being the batter in the bottom of the ninth inning of the championship game, with two outs, bases loaded, and down by one run is both a baseball player’s most glorious dream and most onerous nightmare. This dream was my opportunity as I stepped up to the plate in the Delaware Regional Senior League championship game. The few metal bleachers near home plate at Leroy Hill Park were packed with families from all around Delaware, meanwhile those without a space set up lawn chairs around the…

    terrible even if a major league first baseman tried to catch it they could not reach it. My dad and the other coaches became frustrated. Coach Dave, Sabrina’s dad, began to scream. He called a huddle and we all sprinted into it. If we had not sprinted, we would have been running laps until the umpire said “play ball”. Coach Dave was more clam than I thought he was going to be. He explained how we needed to keep our elbows up and close our hips otherwise we would not have any accuracy. We were…
