Just Another Example of Mess Created by Major League Baseball Regarding the Astros Scandal

(from the Washington Post – please click the link for the full article)

“Major League Baseball may have hoped that the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing scandal would recede into history as a new season began, but outrage over the team’s behavior continues to reverberate from spring training clubhouses to the lowest levels of the sport.

Little Leagues in California, New York and Pennsylvania — the latter not far from the home of the Little League World Series in Williamsport — have decreed that their teams will not be nicknamed the “Astros” this season because, as one administrator put it, wearing that name would send the wrong message to kids…”


Then…with my apologies to Bon Jovi, I think of these modified lyrics:

“Shot through the heart And you’re to blame Astros, you give baseball a bad name…”

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
