You Are Cordially Invited to SOFTBALL IN THE CITY

Permit application process has been started, with any luck we’ll be frolicking in the North Meadow of Central Park some sunny Saturday in July or August.* Attendance will be taken! Those not in attendance will be talked smack of!

Further details will be posted as they become available, or as I remember them. If you’re in contact with primates (or other beings) who don’t regularly visit the site, make sure to let ‘em know! They don’t need to be good, there are already enough of you who make me look bad.

RSVP before game time, whenever that turns out to be. Or just show up.


*Okay, I requested 11 - 2 on July 20, we’ll see what happens
**Per post #130 below, it’s Saturday, August 10, 11 - 2 on North Meadow field #4. I’ll try to keep the info up here up to date with the latest status. -vi

Yankees are having a tough time explaining Giancarlo Stanton’s latest injury

Giancarlo Stanton’s return to the New York Yankees lineup has been delayed once again.

On Wednesday, the team announced its slugging designated hitter has been diagnosed with a mild left calf strain while on a rehab assignment with the Tampa Tarpons, the Yankees’ high A-Ball affiliate.

The new injury — Stanton’s third already this season — will extend his absence until mid-June. So far, Stanton has been limited to three MLB games this season. He’s gone 2-for-8 with seven walks, but has yet to hit an extra-base hit.

The Yankees were hoping to have Stanton back as early as this weekend. Now they’re dealing with a new injury that is proving difficult to explain.

I don’t know- “Giancarlo Stanton appears to be made of Waterford crystal, and 2017 and 2018 were fluke years in terms of his overall durability” seems to be a good-enough explanation to me.
