Triple-A Game between Lehigh Valley, Rochester features 15 homers

Saturday afternoon’s Triple-A game between the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Phillies) and Rochester Red Wings (Twins) set or matched all kinds of franchise records. The two squads combined to score 38 runs, racking up 43 hits and eight walks. 15 of those 43 hits were home runs. The IronPigs outlasted the Red Wings 20-18 in 10 innings.

And there are people who think power hasn’t been cheapened in the contemporary game!

Rochester Red Wings will honor city’s deaf culture with ASL uniforms

It’s not uncommon in Rochester, New York, to begin speaking to a stranger and have them reply in American Sign Language (ASL).

The city has been referred to as having the nation’s highest per capita deaf population, backed up in 2012 with data by the Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf (RIT/NTID). The school estimated 3.7 percent of the city is deaf or hard-of-hearing.

That’s why the Rochester Red Wings, long-time Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, are teaming up with RIT/NTID for Deaf Culture Day on Sunday, April 28 at Frontier Field.

An interesting consideration of the various forms that promotions can take in the minor leagues.
