Adrian Beltre, Joe Mauer and Todd Helton elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Beltre was a cert, but 4.9% of voters still decided to leave him off their ballots. Probably due to the ongoing stupid notion that some voters have that no-one should be unanimous

Proposed A's ballpark in Vegas

Saw a clip a few years ago where a bloke catches a home run, hands the ball to a kid, who promptly throws it back onto the field.

This could get messy if Ohtani is linked to the actual betting/gambling

Meanwhile....it's the proper Opening Day tomorrow

Pirates 4-0 to start the loooooong season.  So I won't be getting too excited just yet.

Sox are 2-2 and Devers is playing hurt, so not expecting much.

However, Tyler O'Neill looks like a decent pick up.

He homered for the fifth straight Opening Day to set the MLB record

The Red Sox have a rare trip to Pittsburgh later in the month - of course, I will be in Florida.

Last time they were here I went to all 3 games and it was excellent.

I sometimes plan my trips around seeing the Sox in Pittsburgh.

One game I attended was a celebration of the 1903 World Series.
The screens and loudspeakers were turned off.
All announcements were made by a bloke with a megaphone

That's excellent.  I just did some reading on that 1903 series, some cool story lines to go alone with it.
