Giancarlo, you had a shot too, but it’s Harper, and at this point in time I don’t think it’s really a question. At 23 years old Harper has taken over baseball, end of story. In the right fielder’s not even five years in Major League Baseball, he has put together a resume that most 10 year veterans don’t

My first m.v.p was in 1939 after my third season in the major league. Event #5 In your 1941 season I had a hitting streak of 56 consecutive games. My hitting streak was the greatest hitting streak of my time and still today. No one has beat my record and not even the great bambino set a better hitting streak than me. Event #6 I went to 7 all star games back to back.
The other day, Camden Depot’s fearless leader claimed, “we can be really optimistic and dream of a Yankees collapse, but we know those things rarely happen. (https://twitter.com/jsbearr/status/626793080264503296)” I was wondering whether this is in fact the case so I figured I would take a look at how division leaders at the end of July perform for the rest of the season. From 1998-2014, the team leading its division at the end of July won on average 93.7 games, had nearly a 75% of winning at least 90 games, had an 84% of making it to the playoffs (via 2015 rules) and a 71.4% chance of winning its division. On first glance (and second), this does appear to indicate that it’s highly unlikely that the Yankees are going to collapse. The problem with just using this method is that it doesn’t take into account whether a division leader is only five games over .500 or fewer (less than a 50% chance of winning their division) or if a division leader is sixteen games over .500 or more (96.6% chance of making it to the playoffs via 2015 rules).

When anyone on the 2015 North Pocono baseball team is asked what comes to mind when they think of last season, it’s the loss to Abington in the district semifinals. Not the fact that ten of thirteen league games were won or that a league title was won, but it was the bitter end to a phenomenal season. This year, my junior year, things will hopefully go better than the previous year. The plan is to have the best work ethic as a team, team chemistry to be sky high, and to win the state championship. As a team, the work ethic needs to be second to none.
The time has come, baseball season is in full swing! Now that basketball has long since ended, it’s time for America’s greatest pastime to begin. Not to knock other sports, but come on. What’s more American than baseball, hot dogs, peanuts, and Crackerjacks? Captained by the Clark brothers Matt and Cam, the Panthers look to improve on their weak record of last Spring (two, maybe three wins?)

Jesse admitted in the beginning, “ I was a very busy person during that time.
Unfortunately for the Twins he hit three home runs in the same game, and lead the yankees to a 9th inning comeback win. The twins had the lead the entire game but they ended up giving up four runs in the last inning and losing by a final score of 8-5. It was a bummer that the Twins had lost to the Yankees, but this was one of the more exciting games of the
It was a showdown, us against Minnetonka. Our team scarlet colored jerseys, and they wore their royal colored jerseys. I was pitching the championship game and I got plenty of run support early as we took a six to nothing lead. I pitched five shutout innings and gave the ball to Brandon Gill to get the last six outs. We lost our mojo a little bit when they scored four runs heading into the last inning.
