Today it is March and that means the Major League Baseball season opens at the end of the month. I don’t know about you all, but I’m so happy it’s nearly here. The excitement around the start of baseball season is always fun, much like the links you’re about to read.

He seems to be adjusting and finding satisfaction in his new role.
  • For the last day of Black History Month yesterday, Paul Silvi took a look at the Mariners’ roster makeup, which ranks in the top 5 in number of African-Americans among major league teams, and asked why aren’t more Black athletes pursuing baseball?
