Joc may be from Stanford territory, but he was pretty visible at one of the biggest college football rivalry games ever--USC vs. UCLA, this past Saturday, at the Coliseum. Here's the article from MLB.com.

I know I saw it when you first posted it, but I didn't comment. Thanks--it was indeed cute! Smile

My favorite offseason story so far is how Astros manager A.J. Inch is going to stay at Doc's house in Encinitas next weekend because he'll be in town for...World Series MVP George Springer's wedding!

DR's comment: "He should be sending me a gift."

LOL Smile

I love that story about Doc & A.J. and also the fact that they faced off in the World series, and still stayed friends. And it went 7 games, too!

And if you have not yet seen it, this one will tug at your heart - it is a video posted by Jennifer Bellinger of her 2 small boys playing baseball. Cole is pitching to Cody - linked here

I knew it was posted on dodgers.com, but hadn't watched it yet until just now. That's priceless! Smile Thanks!

"Jeopardy" question about baseball - answer from someone who is not exactly a fan.

Just have to share a couple of fun moments from the first few games of the season, courtesy of the great Bryce Harper:

-His homer in the Nationals-Braves game in Atlanta last Monday, following the Braves' organist's uncanny selection of "Imperial March" to play during his at-bat in the second inning.

-This followed by one day his home run in Cincinnati launched shortly after a Reds fan taunted him with "overrated!" chants.

You gotta hand it to him, taking the motivation carrot.

For your entertainment:

Deer interference at a Colorado high school game;

Diamonds skewed across the diamond when Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes' necklace broke while he was running bases during the Braves-Mets game at Citifield tonight.

Okay, now this is funny--wild goose chase during rain delay at Comerica Park--although its safety was in question toward the end there!

Yes, I thought it was awesome and he has a lot of talent that doesn't have anything to do with his baseball skills. Good performance.

I almost wanted to post this in the Ravin' thread, but decided it was good enough for Tidbits.

From the L.A. Times:

"Dodgers Manager is Reminded That He Said He'd Grow a Goatee if LeBron James Became a Laker"

By ANDY MCCULLOUGH
JUL 02, 2018 | 5:35 PM


The significance of LeBron James joining the Lakers span far beyond the world of basketball. The long-term consequences for Los Angeles will become known over the four years of his contract. One immediate effect could take shape at Major League Baseball’s All-Star game, in the form of a goatee for Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

As James approached free agency last week, Roberts joked that if James signed with the Lakers, Roberts would manage the National League team in the Midsummer Classic with the same facial hair he sported during his 10-year playing career. Roberts was reminded of this before Monday’s series opener against Pittsburgh.

“Did I agree to that?” Roberts said. “So we signed LeBron, and I said I would grow my goatee out. I think I might do it.”

Dodgers officials indicated there were no immediate plans for James to visit Dodger Stadium. The prospect was considered unlikely. The wattage produced by James far exceeds any publicity to be generated by him throwing out the first pitch before a regular-season game.

Roberts said he had not yet reached out to congratulate Magic Johnson, the Lakers’ president who doubles as part-owner of the Dodgers. But he could understand how Johnson sold James on a shared vision for the future of their franchise.

“There’s an aura about him that very few people have,” Roberts said. “The presence, positivity and trust. Obviously, if you’re courting a player like LeBron, those variable and opportunities, that’s a relationship I can see happening.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not that I want an NBA discussion to ensue, but I'd like to see the return of the goatee. Smile

Well, as we can all see, it happened. Smile

Friday's Reds-Pirates game in Cincinnati had a bit of unexpected action behind the plate.

Did anybody see this about how new Yankee Andrew McCutchen lost his luggage on the road in Seattle? Guess he could just go shopping all over again though. Article from mlb.com

Yeah, and I'm sure that didn't put him out financially or anything like that. Smile

Loved the antics for the furry little visitors in the dugout at Fenway Park as the Red Sox hosted the Mets.

Anyone hear about the missing Red Sox banner? I'll find a link; that was a funny story. Meanwhile, have to bump up more news about the Red Sox.

Just found this "tidbit" while looking at Cut 4 on mlb.com. Astronaut Neil Armstrong is the father-in-law of the Mets new GM - linked here

Anyone else reading my posts? Lol

A couple of things I found on Cut 4, how hard it is to hit MLB pitching & in this case, Trevor Bauer!

The other is one I almost thought was a joke. A species of beetle has been named after Jose Bautista and his bat flip! Surprised - linked here
