Remember like, a week ago, when Rafael Devers was impressive because he was hitting dingers at age 20? Well, he turns 21 in October, so actually, he’s not young anymore comparatively. That’s because the Braves called up Ozzie Albies, who is not only 20 years old, but was also born in 1997, making him the first such player in MLB. Albies also hit his first MLB homer on Thursday, and [counts on fingers] that dinger is the first ever by a player born in ‘97.
In the process of unfurling the tarp, one worker got left behind and trapped in the middle. Unlike other instances of tarp rolling or unrolling gone wrong, this crew member didn’t get rolled up in it or stuck underneath things, and it actually looks like it was a pretty fun time.
This isn’t the first time the Cubs have had some problems with tarp management, but at least in this instance the tarp got put on the infield in the right direction.
This mistake looks like it was so much fun for this employee and no one got hurt, so all in all things turned out okay. Next time it rains the Cubs should charge people to go tarp surfing.
In his age 21 season, Otani posted a .322/.416/.588 line, to say nothing of his pitching dominance. Otani’s 23rd birthday was yesterday, and he appears to be an even more tantalizing Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys prospect Cheap Liverpool Jerseys than Ichiro was at the time of his transition to the MLB. Otani has the frame more traditionally associated with a star outfielder, standing 6’3 and somewhere between 190-200 lbs. His pitching seems likely to overshadow his hitting, but nonetheless 30 teams will lust after Otani, dreaming of a carnation just opening its petals, arriving from overseas to bloom before their very eyes.
