    The end of kids playing pickup baseball

    Absolutely. A majority if my childhood was spent playing pickup baseball. There were 8-10 kids around my age that played everyday during the summer in an empty lot in our neighborhood. My father even built a backstop so we'd stop losing baseballs in the bush that was behind our make shift...

    NY rotation 2018

    That's what i think. In his start against Cleveland Severino got into the 3rd or 4th inning without getting a single swing and miss. Al Leiter even alluded to it (or the Indians stealing signs) during the broadcast.
