Longing for a Shot at the Majors, but Sitting Out the Sabbath

Leave a comment

.

Elie Kligman is a switch-hitter with power. He has pitched no-hitters and immaculate innings, and he can snatch the ball with cool precision from any spot in the infield. He is a star in every way at Cimarron-Memorial High School in Las Vegas, with dreams of reaching even greater heights.

He is also shomer Shabbat, meaning he observes the strict rules of the Jewish sabbath and cannot — and will not — play ball on Friday nights or Saturday afternoons before the sun goes down.

Based on talent and desire, Kligman is good enough to realistically entertain his dream of playing Major League Baseball, or at least top-level college ball. But he knows his devotion to his faith could shatter that dream before it starts, and he is ready to accept that.

And even if a big-league team were to offer Kligman a $10 million signing bonus, with the promise that he would be playing in front of 40,000 people later this summer — provided he agrees to play on the sabbath — he insists he would stand firm in his conviction.

The First Black Woman to Coach in Pro Baseball Thanks Her Mom for the Job

Leave a comment

.

When Bianca Smith landed a job as a minor league coach in the Boston Red Sox organization, becoming the first Black woman to coach professional baseball, she thought about her mother.

Her mom died of cancer in 2013 and would have been proud of her daughter’s achievement. But also furious. Dawn Patterson had particularly strong feelings about the Red Sox.

She despised them.

Patterson was a lifelong Yankees fan and hated their rivals so much that when Smith won tickets to Red Sox games while in college at Dartmouth — awarded to students who attended the most varsity sporting events — she would get angry that her daughter would even consider the trip.

“Mom, but these are, like, free baseball tickets,” Smith remembered saying, emphasizing that the offer was too good to pass up.

The steadfast reply: “No!”

It’s a family joke now that Smith, who was hired in January, is making history with the team her mother could not stand.

“If I get a job with the Red Sox, Mom is going to haunt me for the rest of my life,” Smith recalled telling her youngest brother after the team first reached out to her last fall.

But without her mother’s influence, Smith might not be a baseball pioneer right now, a groundbreaker just months after Kim Ng was named general manager of the Miami Marlins, becoming the first woman in Major League Baseball to hold the title.

The Winners and Losers of NFL Free Agency

Leave a comment

.

NFL free agency is a lot like thrift shopping: If you spend a lot of money, you’re probably doing it wrong. That will be our guiding principle as we look back at the last week and determine which teams are spending wisely versus which teams are just spending.

One note before we begin: The deals below will be listed by the real value of the contracts, not the numbers as widely reported. For example, Patriots tight end Jonnu Smith was reported as signing a four-year deal for $50 million. But when factoring in his guaranteed money and how contracts are often terminated when the non-guaranteed money runs out, his deal is closer to a three-year contract for $38 million. So be aware the numbers here may not be the figures you’ve seen elsewhere.

How to Get Started in Rock Climbing

Leave a comment

Click the link below the picture

.

There is an immense reward in hauling your own body to the top of a wall using nothing but flexibility, cunning, and the strength of a couple of fingers. We asked Sierra Blair-Coyle, a professional climber who buckled into her first harness at age eight, how to get there.

Before you climb, you’re going to spend a lot of time watching other people climb, so you’d better make sure you like your climbing buddies. In a rock-climbing gym, which is where you should start, you’ll encounter two beginner-level disciplines—bouldering and top-roping. Most gyms offer both, but some places may have a more robust community around one or the other. The two specialties also tend to attract different kinds of people: Bouldering is great for extroverts and larger groups, and top roping is ideal for those who want to learn with a single friend. It may be worth visiting several gyms until you find a group and style you like.

Baylor dominates Gonzaga to win national championship

Leave a comment

Monday night may have featured an all-time team.

It just wasn’t Gonzaga.

Baylor looked like the group chasing immortality and the team with all the projected first-round draft picks.

Its three-guard lineup of MaCio Teague, Jared Butler, and Davion Mitchell was dynamite. Its defense was stifling. The Zags had very few answers less than 48 hours after their dramatic buzzer-beating national semifinal win over UCLA.

The result was never in doubt. Baylor scored the game’s first nine points and led by double figures almost the entire evening to win its first national championship in school history, 86-70, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

“Our guys, the better the opponent, the better they play,” Baylor coach Scott Drew said. “And they love being the first — first to win [a] conference [title] since 1950, first to win a national championship. I mean, that really motivates them.”
