Around the Diamond

RIP Roger Angell, 101. A true journalist, a baseball fan and a national treasure. Often called "the Poet Laureate of baseball," a title he rejected, Angell illustrated thru words the glories and tragedies of our national pastime. For more than half a century he reminded us that, "Since baseball time is measured in outs, all you have to do is succeed utterly, keep hitting, keep the rally alive and you have defeated time. You remain young forever."
The Orioles called up MLB's #1 prospect Adley Rutschman.
Congrats to Hunter Renfroe on achieving his 500th hit in style. Not only did he get 3 hits on the night, but he had a terrific outfield assist. He is currently tied for third in assists with 4. Last year he led the AL with 16. Chaim Bloom was unavailable for comment.
Iowa sophomore Kyle Huckstof set a Big Ten record driving in 12 runs and tied a league record with 6 hits as his Buckeyes beat Indiana by a 30-16 football score!
Mets ace Max Scherzer out 6-8 weeks with oblique strain.
Brewers reliever Josh Hader has saved 14 consecutive games to start the season, an MLB record. In 14 appearance he has not given up a run, in fact in 13.1 innings he has struck out 21 and only allowed 2 hits!
Bobby Murcer would have been 75 Friday. He died of brain cancer in 2012. Though he played 5 seasons in the NL he best known for his 13 with the Yankees. He won a Gold Glove and was a 5X All-Star.
"Trying to hit Phil Niekro is like trying to eat Jello with chopsticks." - Bobby Murcer
College Baseball season concludes May 21 (started Feb 18). NCAA Regionals begin June 2, Super Regionals begin June 9 and the College World Series June 16-27 in Omaha.
1912: "The 36 Three-Bagger Season" Owen "Chief" Wilson, RF for the Pirates, hit 36 Triples in 1912 an MLB single season record. He was so adept at hitting them teams would put a shift on in defense and fans would be disappointed with any other hit that wasn't a triple. This is an excerpt from the Pittsburgh Post Sept 14, 1912: "Wilson attempted to triple, but tapped the pellet a trifle too hard and floated it over the right field wall."
