Dorktown: Two-strike strikeouts, three-ball walks, and other counting failures

Have you ever tried counting to four? It’s a skill that’s almost impossible to master, and baseball players and umpires find it as difficult as the rest of us do. In this episode of Dorktown, we’re examining the dozens of times that everyone on the baseball diamond has gotten the count wrong.

Major League Baseball umpire Brian O’Nora was arrested in Ohio in human trafficking sting

Major League Baseball umpire Brian O’Nora was arrested this weekend as a part of a human trafficking sting. The operation targeted people seeking to purchase sex through the internet.

A person with knowledge of the incident confirmed to USA TODAY Sports that the suspect was O’Nora. The person requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue.

O’Nora, 57, and 13 other men were arrested Sunday in Youngstown, Ohio, and charged with soliciting, a third-degree misdemeanor, and possessing criminal tools, a first-degree misdemeanor, announced Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and Liberty Township Police Chief Toby Meloro.
