Ready or Not, Baseball Begins Spring Training This Week


Steve Sparks is heading to spring training soon to broadcast the Houston Astros’ exhibition games on radio. But with the sport and the country still in the grip of the coronavirus, he will miss the up-close access that gives spring training its charm.“We’ll probably have some roped-off areas where we can get to a certain spot, but not like those days where you could stand right next to the bullpen, watch the prospects and listen to the teaching,” said Sparks, a former major league pitcher. “One day I was eight or 10 feet away from Justin Verlander throwing in the bullpen, seeing him look at an iPad after every pitch and making this one adjustment that I was able to talk about for half of a season because of what it did for his fastball.”Fans, too, can often get close enough for their own moments of wonder at complexes in Florida and Arizona, which open for pitchers and catchers for 15 teams on Wednesday and all teams by Friday. Most teams let fans roam the back fields with few restrictions. In Mesa, Ariz., the Chicago Cubs encourage fans to tailgate beside the players’ walkway from the training complex to the ballpark, bringing a touch of Wrigleyville to the desert.Alas, this spring will be different. Attendance will be limited to 20 to 25 percent of capacity, depending on the city. The usual ambience — crowded grassy berms above the outfield walls, fans snagging autographs — will take a hiatus. Even the minor leaguers will keep their distance; most of them will not report to spring training facilities until the big leaguers leave town.At least players in Florida will get a break from two- or three-hour bus rides. The five teams based in the east coast of the state — the Mets, the Houston Astros, the Washington Nationals, the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals — will play against only one another, and the teams that train in the Tampa area will not play the teams in the Fort Myers area.The changes make last spring training seem much longer than 12 months ago. Back then, the industry was consumed by the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal. Three managers and a general manager were fired over it, and the Houston players faced severe backlash from colleagues around the league and fans at exhibition games. The pandemic abruptly changed everything.During a four-month shutdown, the commissioner’s office and the union bickered over the details of the restart, an early battleground for the painstaking negotiations to replace the collective bargaining agreement that expires after this season.The sides assumed their hard lines again this winter. With support from city officials in the hard-hit Phoenix area, owners proposed pushing back spring training, staging opening day in late April and shortening the schedule to 154 games. Players would get full pay, with a universal designated hitter and expanded playoffs as part of the deal. The union rejected that plan without a counterproposal, retaining the expanded playoffs as a bargaining tool to get the larger-scale changes it wants in the next C.B.A.Barring a change, then, the league will head into an uncertain future by turning to the recent past, with pitchers hitting in National League parks and the same playoff format as was held from 2012 through 2019 — three division winners and two wild-card teams in each league. Last season, eight teams from each league qualified for the postseason, and the designated hitter was used in all games.“I don’t understand why we don’t have a D.H.,” Chicago Cubs outfielder Ian Happ said last week on MLB Network Radio. “I think for both sides, for the fans, for the game, for health and safety — there’s no reason why the D.H. shouldn’t be in there. It shouldn’t be tied to anything. The D.H. makes sense for the betterment of the game. It makes sense for the future, it makes sense for keeping pitchers healthy. Nobody wants to see Max Scherzer, Jon Lester or Kyle Hendricks hit. They want to see them strike guys out; they want to see them be the aces that they are.”Two innovations from last season will remain: Extra innings will begin with a runner on second base, and games will last seven innings during doubleheaders. (Some spring training exhibitions will be limited to five innings.) The league will also introduce a new ball that adheres closer to the middle of the existing specification range — in other words, slightly lighter and less bouncy, in hopes of curbing the majors’ home run surge.For some pitchers, this adjustment confirmed suspicions that the league had juiced the old ball to generate more homers. In any case, if last season proved anything, it was the timeless lesson that pitching usually wins. The Los Angeles Dodgers had the best earned run average in the majors and won the World Series. They beat the Tampa Bay Rays, who had the best E.R.A. in the American League.The Dodgers added to their overpowering staff by signing Trevor Bauer, who won the N.L. Cy Young Award for Cincinnati last season, to a three-year, $102 million contract. The deal is front-loaded with salaries of $40 million in 2021 and $45 million in 2022, and Bauer can opt out after either season.Bauer, who chose the Dodgers over the Mets, will be the third former Cy Young winner in the rotation, joining Clayton Kershaw and David Price. The Dodgers also have a wave of hard-throwing homegrown starters, none older than 26, in Walker Buehler, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May and Julio Urias, who threw the final pitch of the World Series.No team can match that depth, not even the division-rival San Diego Padres, who traded for Yu Darvish, Blake Snell and Joe Musgrove to build off the team’s first playoff appearance since 2006. After a shortened season, it may be more important than ever to carefully manage pitchers’ workloads.“We feel like we’ve got seven proven major league starters; we’re not sure exactly how things are going to shake out on April 1, but we couldn’t be more confident that they’re going to help us through the year and also through October,” said Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers’ president of baseball operations. “Adding to our pitching depth was something that was really important to us, just with all the unknowns, going from a 60-game season back to 162 games.”While the Dodgers try to become the first team to repeat as champions since the Yankees won three straight from 1998-2000, the Padres, the Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays moved aggressively to continue their ascent. The White Sox — under a new manager, the Hall of Famer Tony La Russa — gave three-year contracts to starter Lance Lynn and closer Liam Hendriks in free agency, while Toronto splurged for center fielder George Springer (six years, $150 million) and infielder Marcus Semien (one year, $18 million).Several other teams made multiple win-now moves, like the Yankees (Corey Kluber, Jameson Taillon), the Mets (Francisco Lindor, Carlos Carrasco, James McCann, Trevor May, Aaron Loup), the Minnesota Twins, the Washington Nationals and even the Kansas City Royals, who traded with the Boston Red Sox last week for outfielder Andrew Benintendi.The Red Sox, who dealt Price and Mookie Betts to the Dodgers last winter, stumbled to 24-36 for a .400 winning percentage, their worst since 1965. Their additions have been mostly low-cost placeholders — Franchy Cordero, Enrique Hernandez, Marwin Gonzalez, Hunter Renfroe — signaling another year of rebuilding at Fenway Park.Teardown strategies are still in vogue, and not just with typically stingy teams like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. The Cubs shipped Darvish to the Padres, and the Colorado Rockies dealt Nolan Arenado to the Cardinals, less than two years after signing him to an eight-year contract extension. Several other teams, like Arizona, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Seattle, did almost nothing to improve.It is no wonder, then, that players believe the current economic system incentivizes losing while also discouraging teams from exceeding a luxury-tax limit, in effect creating a salary cap. Resolving those issues and avoiding a strike must be an off-field priority this season — because while this spring training is bound to feel different, it is surely better than no spring training at all.

Dr. Fauci on the 2021 MLB Season: ‘You’ve Got to Do as Best as You Can to Protect the Players’


As far as Dr. Anthony S. Fauci can recall, last season was the first time his life was almost completely devoid of watching baseball. “Much to my great pain,” he said in an interview with The New York Times on Friday evening. He added later, “It was just really terrible.”Before the coronavirus pandemic turned the world upside down and consumed his life, Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious disease expert and an adviser to seven presidents, loved a reprieve from work that came from visiting Nationals Park, cracking open a beer, eating a hot dog and watching his beloved Nationals. Growing up, he played in Brooklyn’s sandlots, adored the Yankees and memorized players’ statistics.“My year has been completely a lost year,” Fauci, 80, said. “I hope that this coming year it’ll be a little bit different, but that’s going to depend on the dynamics of the outbreak.”With spring training starting next week in Arizona and Florida — both frequent virus hot spots — and the Major League Baseball season set to begin on April 1, Fauci discussed the public health challenges ahead, his optimism that a normal 162-game season can be played, his belief that fans can return safely to the stands outdoors and what he told baseball officials.Despite not watching much baseball last season, do you at least know how the Nationals did? (After winning the World Series title in 2019, they went 26-34 in 2020 — tied for last in the National League East.)Yeah, a little disappointing. But we’ll be back.From a health standpoint, did you follow along and see how M.L.B. and the players handled the 2020 season without a bubble — from early outbreaks on the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals that jeopardized the season to the tightening of the protocols and bubblelike conditions throughout the postseason?Unfortunately, I really can’t comment intelligently on it because I was completely out of it. I feel badly because I’m such a fanatical baseball fan, but I was just out of it completely. I just was working 18, 19 hours a day, seven days a week. I didn’t have time.Federal officials talked separately to M.L.B. and the players’ union last week. Did you recommend that the season be delayed or continue as planned?I was not recommending one way versus the other because it was very clear that there was tension between the Major League Baseball leadership and the Players Association — that the players wanted to get the season going on schedule and there was some concern about whether or not they should delay it, which would have salary and other implications. I couldn’t get involved in that.The only thing I said was that, from a public health standpoint, it looks like the cases — if you look at the plotting of the cases — they have peaked, they’re turning around and are starting to come down. And likely, the more time that goes by, the less and less cases we’ll see. Unless — unless — and this is a possibility, we have an unexpected surge related to some of the variants. So I think it would really be a close call and I didn’t want to get into any of the dispute about delay it or not delay it.I just would say that whatever you do, you’ve got to do as best as you can to protect the players and the people associated with the game because you don’t want them to wind up getting infected. As time goes by, there’ll be more and more vaccines available. And I would imagine within a reasonable period of time the players and everybody else are going to be able to get vaccinated. I don’t think that’s going to happen before the season starts, but I think that would be something that is on the horizon.Updated Feb. 13, 2021, 10:00 a.m. ETAnyway, I didn’t want to take any kind of sides in any dispute because I think it’s an empiric decision. It’s really a judgment call.Do other professional sports leagues ask for advice, too?They all have. And that’s the reason why I’m a little gun shy about this because it has gotten taken out of context. They ask me questions that are public health scientific questions, and I give them answers based on solid scientific data. The decision that they make, that’s up to them.Although cases are trending down, they are still higher than when the 2020 season started on July 23. So are you more or less optimistic that a longer 162-game season can be completed?The thing that I have some optimism about — but I would have to underscore that it’s cautious optimism — is that, even though the cases are high relative to this time last year, they are on the down slope. And as every day goes by, it looks like it gets less and less. If you look at a month or so ago, we were having 300,000 to 400,000 cases a day. Now for the last few days in a row, we’ve had less than 100,000 cases, which is remarkably diminished.So as the slopes keep going down, we’re going in the right direction. Superpose upon that the fact that we now have highly efficacious vaccines that are being rolled out. We are vaccinating more and more people each day. And we will have more and more vaccines available as the weeks and the months go by. So it looks like we’re heading in the right direction. Whether or not it stays in that direction is going to depend on a bunch of things: Are people going to continue to be careful and to implement public health measures? What is going to happen with the variants? Are they going to make things more difficult by having an additional spike in infections? I don’t know.The big wild card in this is really the variants. Because the variant that is in the U.K. that is likely going to become more dominant in the U.S., the models tell us that will happen probably by the end of March. If we don’t adhere to public health measures the way we should, that could take off on us. That’s the reason why I say I’m cautiously optimistic because we could turn around and go the opposite direction pretty quickly.The regulations may vary across different communities, but what do you think of the likelihood that there will be fans in the stands during spring training and the regular season? The positive aspect of baseball is that most of it is outdoors. And if you space people well enough, you get people to wear masks, you have situations that people don’t crowd at the concessions near each other to get food and things like that, you can pull it off in a pretty safe way, I believe.New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that starting on Feb. 23, with testing, distancing and face covering requirements, arenas and stadiums with 10,000 or more seats can host 10 percent of the venue’s capacity. Is that advisable?If you’re going to do it indoor, you’ve got to have the capacity significantly less than if you do it outdoor. Outdoor is a big safety valve in the sense of the transmission of respiratory disease. Outdoor is always better than indoor.As an ardent Nationals fan, would you go back to Nationals Park to watch a game this season?It would entirely depend on the level of the virus in the community. If every time you look at the charts in the newspaper about infections, it keeps going down and down and down, then by the time I’m getting ready to go to a game — where, for me, it’s warm enough to go to a game — I might very well decide that I want to go into the stands. But again, it’s tough to make a decision in the middle of the cold month of February of something that you might do in March or April because you don’t know what the level of infection is going to be.On a final note, do you want to throw out another ceremonial first pitch after last year’s errant toss at Nationals Park on opening day?I would like a chance to redeem myself. (Laughing.)Have you been given that opportunity?No, they haven’t mentioned anything about that yet.Are you at least practicing in the meantime?I haven’t. That was the problem with why I threw it so bad: I practiced so much I hurt my arm.

เบสบอลกับการรักษาของผู้หญิง


ภายใน Melis Lidtke เธอโกรธมากเมื่อได้อ่านการเปิดเผยล่าสุดครั้งที่สองเกี่ยวกับการล่วงละเมิดทางเพศของผู้สื่อข่าวหญิงที่ Major League Baseball เขาเคยต่อสู้กับการปฏิบัติต่อสตรีเพศเมื่อเขาอยู่ในบทบาทเดียวกันก่อนหน้านี้ในอาชีพของเขาดังนั้นเรื่องนี้จึงเป็นเรื่องส่วนตัว เมื่อปี 1977 Time7 Ludke and Time Inc. ซึ่งเป็น บริษัท แม่ของนายจ้าง Sports Illustrated ได้ยื่นฟ้อง MLB คนอื่น ๆ เมื่อเธอถูกปฏิเสธไม่ให้เข้าคลับเฮาส์ที่สนามกีฬา Yakey อีกหนึ่งปีต่อมาผู้พิพากษาศาลแขวงตัดสินว่าการแก้ไขครั้งแรกซึ่งปฏิเสธการเข้าถึงที่เท่าเทียมกันของ Ludte ละเมิดการแก้ไขครั้งที่ 1 “ แม้ว่าการตัดสินใจจะเกิดขึ้นในอีก 2 ปีต่อมา แต่ฉันก็ผิดหวังที่นักข่าวผู้หญิงควรได้รับการปฏิบัติอย่างเท่าเทียมกัน ผู้ชายพฤติกรรมไม่เป็นไปตามความคาดหวังของคุณ “Ludte กล่าวในการให้สัมภาษณ์ทางโทรศัพท์เมื่อเร็ว ๆ นี้ซึ่งยังคงถูกระงับเพื่อการสอบสวนสิ่งเหล่านี้เป็นตัวอย่างที่น่าเศร้าของการปฏิบัติต่อผู้หญิงในและรอบ ๆ เบสบอลในการตอบสนอง MLB ได้เพิ่มนโยบายการล่วงละเมิดและการเลือกปฏิบัติโดยตั้งสายด่วนข้ามฝ่ายที่ไม่เปิดเผยตัวตนสำหรับการฝึกอบรมบังคับสำหรับผู้บริหารระดับสูงของสโมสรเพื่อรายงานปัญหา “เหตุการณ์ล่าสุดในกีฬาเบสบอลเป็นเพียงการปลุกให้ตื่น” Renee Trudeau กล่าว MLB เข้าร่วม 2019 ก่อนที่จะออกเดินทางในฐานะเจ้าหน้าที่กระจายความเสี่ยงและการรวมกลุ่มหลัก “และเป็นสิ่งที่หลีกเลี่ยงไม่ได้เราอยู่ในยุคของโซเชียลมีเดีย” เราอยู่ในยุคที่แตกต่างกันที่ต้องการความรับผิดชอบที่แตกต่างกัน “Tirado กล่าวเสริมว่าเขากำลังเล่น” ขั้นพื้นฐาน และองค์ประกอบพื้นฐานที่จะทำให้กีฬาเบสบอลดีขึ้น ” “ตอนนี้ถึงเวลาที่จะทำให้พวกเขาเป็นจริงและจัดลำดับความสำคัญ” เธอกล่าว “และไม่ได้มีแค่กีฬา แต่อุตสาหกรรมทั้งหมดล้มเหลว – เราตอบสนองแทนที่จะกระตือรือร้นฉันอาศัยความจริงที่ว่าฉันคิดว่าเบสบอลดำเนินไปในแง่ของการมีส่วนร่วมในตอนนี้และพวกเขาต้องเรียนรู้ทุกคนต้องเรียนรู้มันเป็นของพวกเขา #Meto มันเป็นช่วงเวลาหนึ่ง” เมื่อออกจากเกมแล้วผู้หญิงมีบทบาทสำคัญในการเพิ่มการเป็นตัวแทนใน MLB ผู้หญิงจำนวนมากขึ้นได้รับคัดเลือกให้ไปที่แผนกต้อนรับและเจ้าหน้าที่ฝึกสอนเช่น Bianca Smith จาก Boston Red Sox หรือ Alyssa Nakken จาก San Francisco Giants ในที่สุด Kim Ng ก็หนีออกจาก Miami Marlins หลังจากได้รับการว่าจ้างให้เป็นผู้จัดการทั่วไปในเดือนพฤศจิกายนทำให้เธอเป็นผู้หญิงคนแรกในประวัติศาสตร์เมเจอร์ลีกที่ได้รับการขนานนามว่าเป็นสโมสรและตำแหน่งที่ซ้ำซากตามปกติ คือ “เกิดอะไรขึ้นในคลับเฮาส์สโมสรยังคงอยู่ในสโมสร” “ฉันไม่รู้เราเป็นตัวแทนเบสบอลมา 1 ปีทางวัฒนธรรม “ลอนนี่เมอร์เรย์ซึ่งเป็นตัวแทนเบสบอลมา 1 ปี” เมอร์เรย์กล่าวอ้างถึงคำวิจารณ์จากแซนดี้อัลเดอร์สันประธานเม็ตส์ และเป็นผู้บริหารทีมเบสบอลมายาวนาน Pister เพิ่งได้รับการยอมรับว่าไม่มีผู้หญิงคนใดได้รับการปรึกษาก่อนที่เขาจะได้รับการว่าจ้างในเดือนธันวาคม เธอบอกว่าอัลเดอร์สันเป็นที่ยอมรับในวงการเบสบอล แต่เธอแปลกใจที่จุดบอดในการพัฒนาเกม “เนื่องจากในสิ่งที่ถือเป็นเบสบอลแบบดั้งเดิมจึงไม่มีความจำเป็นอย่างแท้จริงที่เด็กผู้หญิงจะต้องพูดคุยกับผู้หญิงเกี่ยวกับผู้หญิงคนนี้เธอทำงานของเธอเพราะผู้หญิงไม่อยู่ในสถานะที่จะตรวจสอบพวกเขา” เขากล่าวเสริม MMB ได้ปรับปรุงนโยบายการล่วงละเมิดและการเลือกปฏิบัติในสัปดาห์นี้นำโดย Michelle Meyer-Ship หัวหน้าเจ้าหน้าที่และเจ้าหน้าที่วัฒนธรรมคนใหม่ ผู้บัญชาการ Rob Manfred ประกาศการเปลี่ยนแปลงในบันทึกที่ส่งถึงเจ้าของทีมประธานาธิบดีและผู้จัดการทั่วไปทั้งหมด เขาแนบจรรยาบรรณใหม่และเอกสารข้อเท็จจริงเรื่อง “MLB Speak Up” ซึ่งสรุปกฎของลีกและสาขาวิชาที่เป็นไปได้และวิธีการรายงานข้อร้องเรียน ทั้งที่เขาเขียนโปสเตอร์ควรแขวนไว้ในคลับเฮาส์และห้องแถลงข่าว “ขึ้นอยู่กับความรุนแรงของเงื่อนไขการดำเนินการแก้ไขอาจถูกนำไปใช้เป็นการเตือนการระงับการเลิกจ้างหรือวิธีการอื่นใดที่มีให้กับสโมสรหรือกรรมาธิการ” อ่านส่วนหนึ่งของโปสเตอร์สายด่วนซึ่งจะดำเนินการตาม รายงานอย่างจริงจังนอกจากนี้เขายังมั่นใจว่าจะไม่มีการล้างแค้นใด ๆ แมนเฟรดยังสั่งให้แต่ละสโมสรส่งเจ้าหน้าที่ฝ่ายปฏิบัติการเบสบอลและเจ้าหน้าที่การค้าระดับสูง – ห้าคนจากแต่ละฝ่ายเพื่อหยุดการล่วงละเมิดและการฝึกเลือกปฏิบัติที่กำหนดไว้ในเดือนหน้า เขาเรียกร้องให้สโมสรตรวจสอบให้แน่ใจว่าเจ้าหน้าที่คนอื่น ๆ ทั้งหมดได้รับการฝึกอบรมที่คล้ายคลึงกัน “ไม่มีสถานที่สำหรับการล่วงละเมิดและการเลือกปฏิบัติในเมเจอร์ลีกเบสบอล” ลีกกล่าวในแถลงการณ์ “เรารู้สึกขอบคุณสำหรับความกล้าหาญของผู้หญิงที่แบ่งปันเรื่องราวของพวกเขาและเราเชื่อว่าการสนทนาที่เปิดกว้างเป็นส่วนสำคัญของความก้าวหน้า” การตัดสินใจด้วยตนเองได้ขยายไปสู่ทีมที่ในทันใดนั้นก็ต้องการปรับปรุงหรือปรับปรุงแนวทางการจ้างงานในสถานที่ทำงานของตน ประธานฝ่ายปฏิบัติการเบสบอล Jade Hoyer ซึ่งเป็นผู้จัดการทั่วไปของทีมเมื่อ Porter เป็นผู้อำนวยการสอดแนมมืออาชีพที่นั่นกล่าวกับผู้สื่อข่าวว่าทีมควรติดตามพนักงานที่มีศักยภาพอย่างใกล้ชิดในขณะที่พวกเขาเลือกร่างเฟสแรกและดูแลสภาพแวดล้อมของพวกเขา ปลอดภัยสำหรับผู้หญิง. ผู้บริหารระดับสูงจากคลีฟแลนด์อินเดียนแดงอดีตนายจ้างรายอื่นในคลีฟแลนด์และแองเจลิสประกาศความพยายามในลักษณะเดียวกัน เมอร์เรย์กล่าวว่าผู้สื่อข่าวมีส่วนร่วมในการสนทนาส่วนใหญ่ของ Late เพราะ “ผู้หญิงใน MLB ไม่ว่าจะวางนโยบายแบบใดก็ตามจะไม่ได้รับการยกเว้นผลที่ตามมาเธอกล่าวถึงเหตุการณ์เมื่อห้าปีก่อนเมื่อเธอดื่มกับหลาย ๆ คน ลูกเสือหลังจากการประกวด “เป็นเรื่องปกติที่จะพบกันที่บาร์ของโรงแรมหลังจากวันที่ยาวนานเพื่อคุยเรื่องงาน แต่เมื่อเธอโทรหาเขาในตอนกลางคืนเธอบอกว่ามีลูกเสือคนหนึ่งตกอยู่ข้างหลังเขาในลิฟต์และคว้าเขาเข้าไปในลิฟต์ โถงทางเดินถามและจากไปเธอบอกว่าเธอไม่ได้พูดคุยเกี่ยวกับเขามากนักหรือไม่รู้จักคน ๆ นั้นเพราะการประดิษฐ์ตัวอักษรที่เจ็บปวดของเธอ “คำถามจะเกิดขึ้น: ‘นานแค่ไหนแล้วทำไมเธอถึงนั่งดื่มที่นั่น?’ เธอกล่าวเสริมว่า “ฉันจะหาข้อมูลเพิ่มเติมได้ที่ไหนฉันจะคุยกับใครฉันจะไปที่คลับชายชราได้อย่างไรคุณอาจมีวิดีโอจากโรงแรมที่แสดงให้เห็นว่าเกิดอะไรขึ้นจริงและผู้คนก็ยังคงตั้งคำถาม “แม้ว่าพวกเธอจะไม่ถามคำถาม แต่สาว ๆ ก็จะพูดว่า ‘อืมอย่าเชิญลอนนี่เพราะมีบางอย่างอยู่ที่นั่น’ “ที่สำคัญที่สุดเมอร์เรย์กล่าวว่าประสบการณ์ในกีฬาเบสบอลของเขา” ยอดเยี่ยม ” เขาบอกว่าเขาอยู่ในกีฬาเบสบอลซึ่งเขาไม่ได้อยู่ในอาชีพการงานของเขาหากไม่มีผู้ชายสักคน แต่ “ฉันไม่พยายามปกป้องใครจากจินตนาการที่ขยายออกไป” Trudeau กล่าวว่าการล่วงละเมิดในกีฬาเบสบอลมีหน้าที่ในการ “ไม่ตรวจสอบพฤติกรรมที่ไม่ดีของผู้คน” “ฉันคิดว่ามันไม่ใช่แค่เบสบอล แต่เป็นความล้มเหลวโดยรวมของกีฬาทุกประเภทที่ไม่ตรวจสอบพฤติกรรมอย่างรวดเร็ว” เธอกล่าว “มันไม่เหมาะสมที่จะครอบคลุมเบสบอล

Billy Conigliaro, Keeper of His Brother’s Baseball Flame, Dies at 73


Billy Conigliaro, the first draft pick in Red Sox history, who started out in the Boston outfield with his star-crossed brother Tony and later spent years taking care of him after a heart attack, died on Wednesday at his home in Beverly, Mass. He was 73.His death was announced by the team. No cause was given.Though he wound up winning a World Series ring with the Oakland A’s in 1973, Billy Conigliaro was always a part of New England lore, forever connected by his local roots and the tragic events surrounding his older brother.Born less than 10 miles from Fenway Park in Revere, Mass., on Aug. 15, 1947, Billy Conigliaro was chosen fifth overall out of Swampscott High School in 1965, in Major League Baseball’s inaugural amateur draft.He made his big-league debut as a pinch-runner in April 1969, the same month his brother returned after almost two years from a beaning that had derailed his All-Star career.Five days after that, Billy made his first start, hitting two home runs in Boston. He hit another the next day, but he had just one more that season.His best season was 1970, when he played 114 games and batted .271 with 18 home runs and 58 runs batted in. The next season, he hit 26 doubles and 11 home runs in 101 games.Overall, Billy Conigliaro played 247 games for the Red Sox through 1971. He was sent to the Milwaukee Brewers in a 10-team trade in 1972 and abruptly retired. He returned with Oakland in 1973 and played three games in the World Series as the A’s beat the Mets. A knee injury ended his career after that season.Conigliaro played his first two big-league seasons alongside his brother, an enormous star for a franchise that hadn’t won the World Series since 1918.Tony Conigliaro made his debut for Boston in 1964 at 19 and won the American League home run title the next year. A month after playing in the 1967 All-Star Game, with Boston on its way to a championship, he was hit in the cheekbone by a fastball from the Angels’ Jack Hamilton. He suffered extensive injuries, including permanent damage to his left eye.He returned to the major leagues in 1969 and, despite limited eyesight, hit 20 home runs that year and 36 in 1970, playing alongside his brother.Tony Conigliaro was working as a sportscaster in San Francisco when he auditioned for a broadcaster job with the Red Sox in 1982. By all indications, he was set to get the job when he had a heart attack while Billy was driving him to the airport in Boston.He later had a stroke and was in a coma. Billy devoted much of his life to caring for him until Tony’s death in 1990 at 45.For the past 31 years, Billy Conigliaro had served on the committee for the Tony Conigliaro Award, given annually by the Red Sox to a major league player who “has overcome adversity through the attributes of spirit, determination, and courage that were trademarks of Tony C.”His survivors include his wife, Keisha, and a brother, Richie.

Baseball Devises New Pandemic-Related Rules for 2021


One prominent element, however, will not return: the universal designated hitter, which the union had sought. It became a negotiating chip: The league had offered the designated hitter in exchange for an expanded postseason, which the union rejected.Rosters will be smaller than last year — 26 active players, with 28 in September, vs. as many as 30 last year — but reserve squads will remain, and roster rules may be relaxed to help clubs if there is a virus outbreak.Teams must assign several new titles related to the many demands of playing during a pandemic: an infection control prevention coordinator, a compliance officer (who must be an assistant general manager or of higher-ranking), a contact tracing officer, a contact tracing working group and at least one face-mask enforcement officer.Players and key staff must wear Kinexon contact tracing devices, which have also been used by the N.F.L. and N.B.A. (The manual has various rules on who can gain access to the data in the event of a confirmed virus case and when the data should be deleted.) According to the protocols, “repeated failure” to wear the device at team facilities or during team activities, or to return them to their docking stations, can result in discipline.Players and key staff can also be fined $150 per violation, beginning with the third instance, if they do not wear a mask properly, or at all, when required.While the regulations for the season can be tightened as needed, they can also be relaxed should the public health situation improve. Vaccinations won’t be required for players, the manual stated, but M.L.B. and the union will strongly encourage them “at the appropriate time.”Saag said his hope that this M.L.B. season can be completed stems in part from the rollout of vaccinations and from his belief that “a lot of the ice jam of getting access to vaccines will start to thaw” by opening day. He predicted a significant transition toward more normalcy and safety by perhaps the All-Star break in July.“But here comes a caveat,” he said. “There’s an assumption in everything I just said, that the variants that are emerging will be contained through the vaccine, and that the public will continue to be vigilant, especially with regard to mask wearing and, for the time being, avoiding large crowds. So when you take that and extend it to the fans who would want to go to a game, we’re still going to have to constrain that until we get to a point where the transmission of virus is at a very low level.”

M.L.B. Will Change Its Baseballs After Record Home Run Rates


After years of fielding questions about record home run rates and variations in its baseballs, Major League Baseball informed its 30 teams in a memorandum on Friday of changes to the balls — and how they will be handled — for the 2021 season. Chief among the differences will be a slightly reduced weight and slightly decreased bounciness, the latter of which could reduce home runs.“As you are aware, M.L.B. has engaged a committee of scientific experts over the last several years to study the construction and performance of the baseball,” said one of the first lines of the memo, which was first reported by The Athletic. “One of the recommendations of that committee has been to narrow the manufacturing specifications of the baseball in order to improve the consistency of the baseball’s performance.”Five of the six seasons with highest home run rates in baseball history have occurred since the start of 2016. The other came in 2000, before the league tested for steroids. Many pitchers insisted during the record-setting 2019 season that the ball felt different in their hands, and the ace starter Justin Verlander accused the league that summer of intentionally spring-loading the ball. The home run rate plummeted during that postseason, which further raised suspicions among players.(Although home runs have reached record highs, scoring hasn’t, as the hitters’ power surge coincided with record rates in strikeouts and with pitchers’ throwing harder than ever.)Officials from M.L.B. and Rawlings — which has manufactured balls for the league since 1977 and has been effectively owned by the league since 2018 — have said on multiple occasions that the ball has not been intentionally altered. They said there would always be some level of inconsistency to the baseballs because much of the manufacturing process is done by hand, at a factory in Costa Rica.In December 2019, M.L.B. released the findings of a panel of scientists it commissioned to study the issue. The committee’s report said that slightly lower seam heights on the balls, which reduced the drag, and players’ swinging more for the fences were primary causes for the power surge, but added that the scientists couldn’t completely explain the power increase. The league pledged to continue studying the issue.Friday’s memo detailed the new changes. M.L.B. told teams that “in an effort to center the ball within the specification range” for bounciness, Rawlings produced balls that “loosened the tension of the first wool winding.” The result was a ball that weighed 2.8 grams less and had a slightly reduced bounciness that was, on average, “more in the middle” of the league’s current range.In a footnote in its memo, M.L.B. wrote that its independent laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, as well as Rawlings, had estimated that the change in bounciness would reduce the flight by an average of one to two feet on 375-foot fly balls.Though unacknowledged in the memo, this change could lead to fewer home runs over the course of the 162-game season. Also a slightly lighter ball could offset the decreased bounciness.M.L.B. told teams on Friday that, with the testing of the new ball complete, “we are comfortable that these baseballs meet all of our performance specifications and achieve the objective of re-centering the ball within the specification range.”The league said it would release more conclusions from the testing in the coming months.Also in the memo, M.L.B. said that five more teams had applied for and received permission to store balls in humidity-controlled environmental chambers (known as humidors) for the 2021 season. Five teams — the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Boston Red Sox, the Colorado Rockies, the Seattle Mariners and the Mets — used humidors during the 2020 season. A humidor can help combat the effects of a site’s lack of moisture, which makes balls fly farther.M.L.B. also said in the memo that it would begin employing on-site compliance officials for every 2021 game to ensure that teams were following league rules, including those regarding chain of custody of game balls and the application of mud used to help pitchers better grip a ball.The league has tried of late to better enforce its rule against pitchers’ using banned foreign substances like pine tar to improve their grip and the spin of the ball, which can result in more strikeouts.Tyler Kepner contributed reporting.

Pedro Gomez, a Pillar of Baseball Coverage for ESPN, Dies at 58


Pedro Gomez, a mainstay of ESPN’s coverage of Major League Baseball for much of the past two decades who went from the newspaper sports section to millions of television screens, died at his home in Phoenix on Sunday, ESPN and his family said. He was 58.No cause of death was given by the network, which announced Mr. Gomez’s death late on Sunday night.“We are shocked and saddened to learn that our friend and colleague Pedro Gomez has passed away,” James Pitaro, the chairman of ESPN and Sports Content, said in a statement. “Pedro was an elite journalist at the highest level, and his professional accomplishments are universally recognized. More importantly, Pedro was a kind, dear friend to us all. Our hearts are with Pedro’s family and all who love him at this extraordinarily difficult time.”Tributes to Mr. Gomez, a son of Cuban refugees, poured in from across journalism and professional sports, including from several baseball franchises. Mr. Gomez’s son Rio Gomez plays for the Salem Red Sox, a minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.“Devastating news about Pedro Gomez,” Jeremy Schaap, the veteran sports reporter and an ESPN colleague, said on Twitter. “Such a lovely, kindhearted, talented human being. So proud of his family.”Jason La Canfora, who covers the National Football League for CBS Sports, said on Twitter that he looked up to Mr. Gomez.“I was blessed to meet Pedro Gomez as a cub reporter in college, and further blessed to be able to call him a friend,” Mr. La Canfora wrote. “He represented the best of us, as journalists and human beings.”Mr. Gomez joined ESPN in April 2003 after spending 18 years as a baseball beat writer and columnist, including for The Miami Herald in his native South Florida, San Jose Mercury News, Sacramento Bee and Arizona Republic.During his career, he covered 25 World Series and 22 All-Star Games, according to an ESPN biography, which said he attended the University of Miami and majored in journalism.Mr. Gomez also chronicled some of the more sordid episodes of the national pastime. In 2007, there was Barry Bonds surpassing Hank Aaron’s home run record under a cloud of suspicion over steroid use. There was also the case of the Chicago Cubs fan Steve Bartman deflecting a foul ball during Game 6 of the 2003 National League Championship Series, which the then-Florida Marlins went on to win.In 2016, Mr. Gomez and his son Rio were profiled by ESPN for a Father’s Day feature. That same year, he traveled to Cuba to report on an exhibition game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team, the first time a Major League Baseball club visited there in about two decades.“Completely surreal to those of us Cubans and/or Cuban Americans,” Mr. Gomez said on Twitter at the time.During the trip, Mr. Gomez took his father’s and brother’s ashes back to his family’s homeland, ESPN recalled.Mr. Gomez was a member of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America and a voting member for the Baseball Hall of Fame.In addition to his son Rio, he is survived by his wife, Sandra Gomez; another son, Dante; and a daughter, Sierra.

Trevor Bauer Picks Dodgers Over Mets


The Mets have had an eventful off-season under new owner Steve Cohen, adding one dynamic star, several other solid players and subtracting one disgraced general manager. But their hopes of strutting into spring training as the undisputed winner of the winter will not happen after their final big prize slipped away.Trevor Bauer, the best free-agent pitcher on the free agent market, turned down an offer from the Mets to sign with his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday in a deal that will give the Dodgers, the defending World Series champion, one of the deepest starting pitcher rotations in baseball.Bauer, a 30-year-old right-hander, confirmed his decision to join the Dodgers in an elaborately produced video posted to his YouTube channel. The video, set to dramatic music and teasing New York fans by briefly flashing a Mets jersey with name stitched across it, ended with a shot of Bauer in a Dodgers uniform saying, “This season is about adding to our legacy, and I can’t wait, Dodger fans.”Multiple news reports said the deal was for three years and $102 million guaranteed, and that it included an option for Bauer to opt out after each year. He will make $40 million in 2021 and $45 million in 2022, according to ESPN.Bauer had narrowed his search to a handful of teams this winter but by Thursday only two remained, according to Bauer’s agent, Rachel Luba. Those were believed to be the Mets and Dodgers, and expectations among Mets fans soared. But like George Springer, the free-agent outfielder who signed with the Toronto Blue Jays last month instead of the Mets, Bauer decided to go elsewhere.Bauer, the National League Cy Young Award Winner in 2020, will join a Dodgers pitching rotation that already includes Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Tony Gonsolin, David Price (who opted out of last season because of coronavirus concerns), Julio Urias and Trevor May.The Dodgers led baseball in team earned run average over the last two years (including relief pitchers), including a 3.02 team E.R.A. last season. Los Angeles has led the National League in E.R.A. for four years running.Bauer went 5-4 with a 1.73 E.R.A. for the Cincinnati Reds in last year’s pandemic-shortened season. He was the only pitcher in M.L.B. with two shutouts.Using a scientific approach that relies heavily on data analysis and high-tech instruments that measure every aspect of his windup and delivery, Bauer is a student of pitching — constantly analyzing and adjusting virtually everything he does on the mound.It is not a new passion: In high school in California, Bauer played chess with his physics teacher at lunch; whenever their games ended quickly, Bauer and the teacher would discuss the physics of baseball. As a major leaguer, he been open about his willingness to share his evolving knowledge with teammates and opponents alike.In nine seasons over all, including five in Cleveland, Bauer compiled a 75-64 with a 3.90 E.R.A. At the same time, he gained a reputation as one of the baseball’s most outspoken players, one who would banter with strangers on Twitter but also vigorously defend the game against critics who bemoan the growing focus on strikeouts, home runs and walks.At times, his outspoken nature made headlines of its own, on topics ranging from his views on President Obama and President Trump, his rejection of the idea that human activity can influence climate change, and the “liberal slanted” news media.Two years ago, he engaged in contentious interaction with a female college student that resulted in several of Bauer’s followers attacking the woman online. Bauer later issued a statement saying he would “wield the responsibility of my platform” with more care in the future. He is one of the few players to employ a woman as his agent, Rachel Luba, and has contributed to women’s charities, including one that supports female software coders.Even without landing Bauer, the Mets off-season was quite productive. In January they made a trade to acquire Francisco Lindor, one of the best shortstops in baseball, from Cleveland. They also picked up the starting pitcher Carlos Carasco in that deal.The Mets also signed James McCann, a top catcher with the Chicago White Sox, to a four-year contract worth approximately $40 million, and added the free-agent relief pitchers Trevor May and Aaron Loup to provide bullpen depth. Most recently, they traded for Joey Lucchesi, a left-handed pitcher from the San Diego Padres.Bauer would have been a valuable addition to the rotation, slotting in next to Jacob deGrom for a one-two punch that would have been the envy of many other teams. Instead, the Mets may have to face him in the postseason.
