Female pitcher leads Philly’s Taney Dragons to Little League World Series

Mo’Ne has played baseball with the Anderson Monarchs, a travel team based out of the Marion Anderson Recreational Center in South Philly, since the age of seven. “A lot of the time opposing players don’t realize it’s a girl; they assume it’s a boy with long hair,” says her longtime coach Steve Bandura.

Yankees demote April and May star Yangervis Solarte to Triple-A

Unfortunately he’s hit just .162 in 22 games since June 1, including his current 3-for-41 (.073) slump, and today the Yankees decided to demote Solarte back to Triple-A.
...
the Yankees have called up 27-year-old career minor leaguer Zelous Wheeler, a utility man hitting .299 with seven homers and an .834 OPS in 66 games at Triple-A.

The Yankees are trying to find another hot blackjack table.  Too much play and they eventually all turn to ####.
