Eighty-eight players with WCL experience were selected in the MLB Draft last June, and recent alumni of the league include the Orioles’ Chris Davis, Rays’ Matt Duffy and Matt Andriese, Tigers’ Matt Boyd and Mariners’ James Paxton.
I’m obviously not going to be the fastest pitcher in the league, but I have some good off-speed pitches that will keep hitters on their toes, said Eccles, who is listed at 5-8, 125 pounds as one of the top pitchers on the Canadian women’s national team.
She also plays softball for the University of British Columbia, which congratulated her on Twitter.
A disrespectful fan threw a bag of peanuts at me, Jones told USA Today. I was called the N-word a handful of times tonight. Thanks. Pretty awesome.
Schilling still isn’t buying it.
If he wants to maintain the lie he made here, that’s fine, Schilling told Boston’s WEEI in a text message. No one denies racism exists, but when people like him lie about an incident and others just take him at his word, it perpetuates a mythical level of racism.
The former ESPN baseball analyst continued, And for some reason, it appears blacks believe only blacks can talk about racism and only whites can be racists. I promise you if some scumbag yelled the N-word at Adam Jones in Fenway, it would have been on Twitter, Facebook and every other social media site asap, like every other ’incident.’ Not to mention the liberal Boston media would have broken its neck to identify the racist. But just taking him at his word means there are a bunch of white cowards and racists living here, because no one stood up to the guy. Adam has an agenda and one needs to only look at his past commentary on race and racism to see it. But see, when you question fake hate crimes in this day and age it somehow makes you a racist.
