Brothers’ charity video captures One Boston California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey

Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

Brothers Colin and Nick Barnicle have long been in the field of video production, where they’ve found plenty of success and gratification, including “Down the Line,” a behind-the-scenes documentary on Boston’s Fenway Park released in 2011.

So when the tragic bombings took place on Marathon Monday, the Belmont Hill graduates knew they had to get back to Boston.

“Usually, we would go in and pitch an idea,” said Colin Barnicle California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey. “We said, ‘Let’s just do this, because we want to do it and help out in the way we know how.’ And the way we know how is to put our work into a video.”

The Barnicles, along with friend Jeff Siegel, traveled from New York to film and edit their own One Boston video in less than 48 hours. They drove to Boston on Saturday, set up two cameras in Fenway Park and captured the emotion of the day baseball returned to Boston.

The one-minute, 50-second video has no footage of the bombing, instead focusing on the recovery process afterward.

“We just took our cameras and equipment and said ‘Let’s see what we can get out of this,'” Colin Barnicle said. “It was really just 35,000 people and thousands more outside the stadium just taking that cathartic breath, that sigh, that ‘This is over let’s get back to normal.’

“This was something we could tangibly see, feel and experience together.”

It might be their most satisfying project to date.

“It was the first time in a long time, since 2004, where the team and the fans connected on a totally different level,” Colin Barnicle said, describing the scene from Fenway on Saturday. “Look at the [David Ortiz] speech: The players were feeling along with the fans.”

MLB Notebook: Zito, Giants California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey throwing zeros

In 1933, Giants southpaw Carl Hubbell posted a 1.66 ERA (the lowest in the National League since 1917), finished with a 0.982 WHIP (the lowest in the league since 1920) and recorded 10 shutouts (the highest tally in the NL since 1916). Three of those shutouts came within the Giants’ first 18 games, when the sight of Hubbell on the mound for New York was fairly common.

After starting the Giants’ first game of the year and going the first 11 innings in what turned out to be a 1-1 tie, Hubbell picked up a (retroactive) save two days later, and two days after that, he tossed a four-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts against the Braves. On three days’ rest, he then threw another four-hit shutout, this one against the Dodgers. A win in relief, a loss as a starter and another save came over an eight-day span which bled into early May, and then on May 7, Hubbell threw yet another gem.ggie Jackson Jersey.

With a five-hitter helping the Giants to a 1-0 win and an 11-6 record for the year, Hubbell had his third shutout of the still-very-young season. No pitcher had accomplished that feat (three shutouts through so few team games) since Dutch Leonard in 1916, giving Hubbell yet another mark of notoriety in a superb campaign.

Zito
Barry Zito allowed five hits in seven scoreless innings and picked up his third win as the Giants blanked the Padres, 5-0, on Sunday. The Giants improved to 12-7 with the victory, which also happened to be their fifth team shutout of the year.

In three of his four starts this season, Zito has finished with seven scoreless innings. He is the second Giants pitcher since 1916 to have — through 19 team games — at least three outings with that many innings and no runs allowed. In 1933, Hubbell had three. Zito is one of 17 pitchers to do it. Two hurlers — the Orioles’ Dave McNally in 1972 and the Dodgers’ Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 — each had four. Like Hubbell’s three, each of the four for McNally and Valenzuela were shutouts.ReReggie Jackson Jersey Sale.

With five team shutouts through 19 team games, the Giants are the ninth NL club since 1916 to have that many. The others: the 1918 Giants, the 1941 Dodgers, the 1963 Cardinals, the 1968 Mets, the 1971 Giants, the 1985 Dodgers, the 1993 Braves and the 2011 Phillies.

Arencibia and Buck
Toronto’s J.P. Arencibia hit his seventh home run of the season on Sunday, as did his former Blue Jays teammate, the Mets’ John Buck.

Arencibia’s seven have come in 19 team games. Since 1916, he is one of 14 catchers to have that many. Gabby Harnett (1925), Yogi Berra (1956) and Todd Hundley (1996) each had eight. The rest had seven: Jimmie Foxx (1935), Roy Campanella (1953), Sherm Lollar (1955), Johnny Bench (1971), Gary Carter (1977 and ’88), Dale Murphy (1979), Mike Piazza (1998), Jorge Posada (2004) and Buck (2013).

Buck’s seven have come in 17 team games. The others catchers to do that (since 1916): Harnett (1925) and Berra (1956), with eight apiece; Lollar (1955), Carter (1977), Hundley (1996) and Posada (2004).

Reds California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey
The Reds defeated the Marlins, 10-6, on Sunday, with leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo going 2-for-2 with a walk and two hit-by-pitches, and No. 3 hitter Joey Votto going 3-for-5 with his second home run in as many games. Choo owns a .523 on-base percentage, and Votto is at .522.

In the past 40 seasons, there have been 49 players who entered May with at least 75 plate appearances and an on-base percentage of at least .500. Barry Bonds in 2004 owns the top mark among these 49, with a .696 on-base percentage (25 hits, 39 walks, no hit-by-pitches or sac flies in 92 plate appearances). Four Reds players are on this list: Joe Morgan (.551 in 1975), Pete Rose (.541 in 1976), Adam Dunn (.538 in 2004) and Votto (.504 in 2011).Los Angeles Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

Royals
The Royals — who are in first place in the American League Central — took both ends of a doubleheader against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday, winning the first game, 4-2, and taking the second game in 10 innings, 5-4. The Royals had last swept a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Aug. 12, 1986, and last did it in Boston on May 31, 1971.

Pirates
Clint Barmes drove in a pair of runs with a pair of singles, helping Pittsburgh to a 4-2 win over the Braves on Sunday. The Pirates — who have won nine of 12 — had seen Barmes open his season 1-for-13 with two walks with runners in scoring position (the one hit did not drive in a run).

Pirates pitchers fanned 13 batters in the win, giving the club its sixth double-digit strikeout game of the season and its second straight game with 13 K’s.

The six through 18 games is the second most for the Pirates since 1916, eclipsed only by the seven from the 1999 team.

Before this two-game stretch, the Pirates had last fanned 13 or more in back-to-back games in 2011. The only other time since 1916 they did it was in 2004. This streak, unlike the other two, saw the Pirates win both games.

Rangers
The Rangers — led by starter Justin Grimm’s nine strikeouts — fanned 11 Mariners in an 11-3 victory on Sunday. The strikeout total marked the sixth time this season the club has reached double digits. Those six through 18 games ties this team with the 2010 Rangers for the most in franchise history.

Red Sox California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey

In both ends of their doubleheader against the Royals, the Red Sox’s staff reached double digits in strikeouts (10 in the first game and then 12 in the second). These two give Boston 11 games with 10 or more strikeouts this season — the most in the Majors. The 11 through 18 team games are — by far — the most for any Red Sox club since at least 1916 (the previous high was six), and the most for any team through that many games since 1916. Before 2013, the highest tally had been nine, by the 1990 Mets and the 2012 Yankees.

The Red Sox own the second-most K’s in the AL, with their 178 one behind the Tigers. Both teams have played 18 games. Last season, Rays pitchers — who set a new AL record with 1,383 strikeouts for the season — had accumulated 115 through their first 18 games.

Brewers
The Brewers defeated the Cubs, 4-2, on Sunday for the club’s seventh straight win. During the winning streak, the team ERA is 3.09. In the team’s first 10 games — when Milwaukee went 2-8 — the team ERA was 5.20.

Angels
The Angels defeated the Tigers, 4-3, in 13 innings on Sunday, getting a walk-off home run from Mark Trumbo. Trumbo’s 425-foot shot was his fourth career game-ending home run, tying him with Jim Fregosi and Leroy Stanton for the third most in franchise history. Tim Salmon had six, and Brian Downing had five.Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

Clubs California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey celebrate Earth Day across baseball

John California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey Keats wrote that “the poetry of earth is never dead.” Monday is an opportunity for all of us around Major League Baseball — and the planet — to inspire its lasting verse.

It is Earth Day, the 43rd anniversary of an event born of environmental anger in 1970, and a time to take stock of one’s individual role in protecting this third rock. MLB and its 30 clubs mark this occasion in many ways, so expect to see such demonstrations as recycling drives and recycling-related trivia on scoreboards, a carbon-neutral game in Boston, a ceremonial first pitch from an Environmental Protection Agency executive and rain gauge giveaways in Minnesota.Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

These are just some of the extensive yearlong green efforts now institutionalized within the culture of each Major League club, part of the overall MLB Greening Program.

“I am very proud that our 30 clubs have demonstrated a wide-ranging commitment to sustainable practices,” Commissioner Bud Selig said, “and we will continue to strive to set a positive example for all those who love our game.”

The first Earth Day led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. In Washington, the Nationals, the EPA and Coca-Cola have collaborated to highlight a number of elements for the 7:05 p.m. ET game against St. Louis.

Nationals fans will see a prerecorded “Earth Day Welcome” video highlighting Earth Day, the EPA and recycling with Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator in the EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. There will be pregame recycling-related trivia, a recycling public service announcement from Coke and pregame ceremonies devoted to Earth Day.

EPA acting administrator Bob Perciasepe will throw out the ceremonial first pitch and Shawn Garvin, administrator for EPA’s mid-Atlantic region, will deliver the lineup card. One lucky section will be chosen to receive 400 Nationals/Coca-Cola T-shirts that read “Give It Back!” — the same ones volunteers from green non-profit organizations will wear in the aisles — at the end of the second inning, and the EPA will staff the Community Clubhouse, educating fans about Earth Day and recycling. Los Angeles Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

When the A’s visit the Red Sox at 6:35 p.m. ET, it will be designated as a carbon-neutral game in Boston. The Red Sox are purchasing renewable energy credits from New England-based projects to offset emissions generated in this game. The EPA’s New England region will provide 40 volunteers for the Poland Spring Green Team at this game, part of a larger overall Fenway Greening program.

“As stewards of such a storied venue we recognize our unique position and ability to raise public consciousness about important issues,” Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said. “Our decision to enhance the ballpark’s environmental attributes is one born out of a sense of personal responsibility and professional duty. For us, this announcement marks some of the first steps in an ongoing process to make America’s most beloved and oldest ballpark also one of America’s greenest.”

The first 10,000 fans at the Twins’ 7:10 p.m. CT home game against the Marlins will receive a Twins Rain Gauge presented by Pentair, and there will be other Earth Day-related themes heading into this game. Minnesota’s extensive green efforts are detailed on their “Go Twins, Go Green” page.

Through aggressive recycling and waste-to-energy programs, the Twins kept more than 2,559 tons of waste out of local landfills in 2011 and ’12. They reported that 1,333 tons of trash have been sent to the Hennepin Energy Recovery Center, 956 tons of waste have been recycled from Target Field, and 260 tons of organic materials have been composted and diverted from landfills.ggie Jackson Jersey.

This year, the Twins are seeking help from their fans in increasing the amount of recycled organic materials, further reducing the amount of waste produced at Target Field.

The Reds open a home series against the Cubs at 7:10 p.m. ET, and their efforts for Earth Day were highlighted by a fourth annual PNC/Players for the Planet E-Waste Recycling Drive that spanned various regional sites from Friday through Sunday.

In conjunction with Cohen Recycling and many of Cincinnati’s leading corporations, this drive provided an easy way for Reds fans and residents of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky to recycle old electronics. The first 200 cars at each event received two View Level tickets to an upcoming Reds game this season, while supplies lasted.

The Phillies’ Red California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey Goes Green program grows stronger each year, and their fourth annual front office employee Earth Day Cleanup of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park — part of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation — took place on April 15. That was a day after the club partnered with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to give away 150 free trees to fans.

On Earth Day, the Phillies are announcing the second year of their Home Runs for Trees program. This program is a partnership with PHS and Aramark. For each home run hit by a Phillies player this season — home or away — a tree will be planted as part of PHS’s Plant One Million campaign.

The Phillies agreed to purchase more than 22 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of Renewable Energy Credits, matching 100 percent of their electricity usage with wind and solar generation. This is the sixth calendar year the Phillies have made this commitment.

ReReggie Jackson Jersey Sale.The Cardinals will host their fourth annual Green Week (#4aGreenerGame) starting Monday, with activities designed to promote recycling, both inside and outside of Busch Stadium.

For starters, they will host an electronics recycling and general donations drive in collaboration with MERS/Goodwill, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT. Fans may drop off unused or unwanted electronic equipment at trailers in the Lot C parking lot, located at the corner of 8th Street and Cerre Street, immediately south of I-64/40. Fans who donate receive a voucher good for half off Cardinals tickets, and further details are listed on the Cards’ website.

The EPA’s Food Recovery Challenge asks organizations to find alternatives to throwing away food, which will reduce the amount going to landfills. When food decomposes in landfills, it becomes a source of greenhouse gas emissions. Together, the Cardinals and Delaware North Companies have diverted more than 27 tons of unused food from Busch Stadium concessions stands to Operation Food Search since 2010, and the EPA will recognize the Cardinals and Delaware North in an April 29 on-field ceremony.

The Rays open a three-game series against the Yankees in conjunction with an Earth Day celebration. Fans were able to purchase a discounted Earth Day seat in the Press Level Reserved and receive a Tampa Bay Watch/Rays hat for $35 (a $56 value), with proceeds of each Earth Day ticket benefiting the “Break A Bat, Plant A Ball” program.

In Seattle, the Mariners — American League recycling champions by MLB for 2012 — made an Earth Day-related announcement last week in their joint news release with BASF about a season-long environmental awareness program called Sustainable Saturdays, part of their overall sustainability initiative. Mariners ace Felix Hernandez is a key part of the campaign, encouraging fans to compost at home, and the club will give away more than 10,000 “kitchen catchers” at a late-season game. The countertop compost bins featuring King Felix will urge fans to “Strike Out the Landfill.”

Thanks in part to BASF-sponsored zero-waste stations throughout the concourse, the Mariners and their fans already divert more than 86 percent of game-day waste away from local landfills through recycling of plastic bottles and composting of food waste and food service items.

“BASF is proud to support the Mariners and Sustainable Saturdays,” said Chris Bradlee, BASF’s North American biopolymers-market development manager. “From BASF’s perspective, this kind of sponsorship connects directly to the company’s purpose of creating chemistry for a sustainable future.”

The Rockies’ Games of Green initiative features 19 games this season, with players and fans enlisted to make a positive impact on the environment. The next one is Tuesday night, when Atlanta is at Coors Field.

Fans can buy a $25 Green Pack for the Green Games to get two tickets, with $5 from each pack sold going toward the Green Fund and “Wood for Wood” program, which plants one tree in the Denver area for every Rockies home run hit during these 19 games.

Braun’s homer lifts Brewers to seventh straight win California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey

Ryan Braun isn’t getting many hits these days, but he is making them count.ReReggie Jackson Jersey Sale.

The Brewers’ left fielder made Cubs starter Scott Feldman pay for a pair of fifth-inning mistakes — the first a misplayed comebacker and the second a hanging curveball, which Braun hammered to the left-field seats for a three-run home run and a 4-2 victory on Sunday that capped a perfect homestand.

Wily Peralta pitched 6 2/3 innings for his first win of the season, and the Brewers won their seventh straight game by completing back-to-back sweeps of the Giants and Cubs at Miller Park. After a 2-8 start, the 9-8 Brewers are above .500 for the first time since they beat the Rockies on Opening Day.

“I’m not making a lot of contact, but when I do make contact, it counts,” Braun California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey said. “Homers are always good. We’ve won seven games in a row, so as long as we’re winning, I’m happy.”

Braun’s last nine games have been, for lack of a better word, bizarre. He is 5-for-32 (.156) and has struck out at least three times in four of those nine games, including his three whiffs on Sunday.

But Braun also has four home runs and 10 RBIs in that span, and the homers have all been significant. His eighth-inning shot in St. Louis on April 14 snapped the Brewers’ 32-inning scoreless streak and sparked a comeback that started the team’s current winning streak. Four days later, he put the Brewers on the board against Giants ace Matt Cain with Milwaukee’s first of three two-run home runs in the first three innings. The day after that, Braun’s three-run home run highlighted a four-run first inning against the Cubs’ Jeff Samardzija.ggie Jackson Jersey.

On Sunday, Braun would not have even batted in the decisive fifth inning had Feldman cleanly fielded a two-out comebacker by Brewers shortstop Jean Segura. But the baseball popped out of Feldman’s glove for an error, giving Braun a chance to bat with two men on base and the Brewers trailing, 2-1.

He fell into a 1-2 hole, then looked at an outside fastball for ball two before jumping on a high curve. Both Feldman and catcher Welington Castillo had clear reactions when Braun connected with that pitch.

“We get Braun two strikes and once again, we couldn’t put the game away right there and make a good pitch,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “The way Rickie [Weeks] is swinging behind him, we had him two strikes and could’ve done a whole lot of things other than that.”

Opponents have been pitching carefully to Braun because regular cleanup hitter Aramis Ramirez is hurt and his replacement, Weeks, had four hits and 22 strikeouts in his last 48 at-bats.

Los Angeles Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.Is Braun growing more frustrated?

“No, less frustrated,” he said. “Lots of homers — meaningful homers. … It’s not even about me, it’s about the team. We’re winning games.”

Braun did let some disgust show in the eighth inning, when home-plate umpire Phil Cuzzi called him out on a full-count sinker from Shawn Camp that was well off the plate. Braun twirled his bat high in the air and earned an immediate ejection, but never looked back as he walked to the clubhouse.

“What did you think of the bat flip?” Braun said with a smile afterward.

“Umpires are always trying their hardest,” Braun said. “Not everybody is going to be perfect. Obviously, it was a ball. It’s just frustrating for me, because the challenge is not swinging at that pitch.”

For the Cubs, the challenge has been fielding the baseball. An error started the Brewers’ four-run first inning in a 5-4 win on Friday, and three more errors gave the Brewers four unearned runs in Saturday’s 5-1 win. On Sunday, Castillo’s throwing error in the fourth inning (and three Feldman walks) contributed to the Brewers’ first run, and Feldman’s fielding error in the fifth gave Braun his chance to play hero.

“When the opponent makes a mistake and you’re a good team, you have to find a way to win, and we were able to do that the last couple of days,” Braun said. “For us, it starts with pitching.”Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

The Brewers have been getting quality pitching throughout their winning streak. It was Peralta’s turn on Sunday, and he allowed two runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings for his first victory of the season.

“I tried to do my best to keep the streak going,” Peralta California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey said. “This gives me more confidence.”

His only mistakes came in the third inning, when he had Starlin Castro in an 0-2 count, but caught too much of the plate with a slider, which Castro hit for a single. Five pitches later, Rizzo hit another misplaced slider for his sixth home run and gave the Cubs a 2-0 lead.

Peralta exited in the seventh inning with two runners on and two outs, and the resurgent Brewers bullpen finished things off. John Axford threw a wild pitch that put both runners in scoring position, but retired David DeJesus on a flyout to end the threat.

Former Cub Tom Gorzelanny pitched a perfect eighth inning and walked a batter in the ninth. Jim Henderson came on to earn his fourth save of the year.

The Brewers have won eight straight home games against the Cubs and 18 of the last 20.

“It’s not like we really out-hit them that much,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. “Those three games can turn around and go either way, so that part’s frustrating [for Sveum and the Cubs]. We went through it early in the season, and most likely, we’re going to go through it again during this season. It’s the ups and downs.”

“Can you turn that up?” he said.

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association chipped in $500,000. The Red Sox added $100,000, and the Red Sox Foundation, with help from fans donating at Fenway Park this past weekend, contributed $46,500. All the money was presented to The One Fund Boston on Sunday.Los Angeles Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

“For us, it was important,” Lucchino said. “We always understood we had an obligation and an opportunity to give back to the community. We all need to unite and come together in this.”

Trumbo’s walk-off HR in 13th caps sweep of Tigers California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey

With a hitter’s count in the bottom of the 13th, Mark Trumbo got the changeup he was looking for and deposited it over the left-field wall, giving the Angels a 4-3 walk-off win over the Tigers.Reggie Jackson Jersey Sale.

With that, an Angels team that had lost 10 of its first 14 games got back on track with a weekend sweep over the reigning American League champs.

“It’s pretty well-chronicled that we’ve been struggling a little bit early on,” Trumbo California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey said. “But three wins against a team of this caliber, it’s an excellent sign.”

With all the attention given to Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, Trumbo has quietly gotten off to a fast start. Trumbo has a hit in 15 of the Angels’ 17 games and has reached base in all of them. On Sunday, his only hit came on a 3-1 changeup that Phil Coke left out over the plate.

“It was the right pitch,” said Coke, who has allowed four hits to Trumbo in four at-bats against him. “It was just two balls too high and found the barrel. If he’s out there guessing, he guessed right. My hat’s off to him, because he swung at the right speed and hit it a long way.”

C.J. Wilson flirted with disaster to start the game, but kept the Tigers contained through six innings and the bullpen pitched seven scoreless to finish the team’s first sweep of 2013.ggie Jackson Jersey.

“It’s a heck of a club over there,” said Angels manager Mike Scioscia, whose team is now 7-10. “Today, you can’t say enough about what our pitching staff and our bullpen did to keep us in the game and match those guys pitch for pitch. [They] worked around some trouble, and in the end got a big hit.”

Wilson admittedly didn’t have his best stuff, but the left-hander battled to keep his team in the game, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks.

“The one thing I liked with C.J. today is the first inning he got out [of a jam], and in the second, he minimized damage,” Scioscia said.

The Tigers loaded the bases in each of the first two innings, prompting Wilson to throw 57 pitches, but they were only able to score once. After struggling early, Wilson settled down. Except for a walk to Torii Hunter and a two-run home run to Prince Fielder, Wilson retired 12 of the 14 batters he faced after the second.Los Angeles Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

“I was missing with my breaking ball a lot early,” Wilson said. “It was breaking way too big, then I couldn’t throw my curveball for a strike and my changeup was kind of a non-factor. I just had to go out there with [a] fastball, slider and cutter and compete.”

Because of a postponed game, a scheduled off-day and quality starts by Tommy Hanson and Garrett Richards, the Angels’ bullpen entered Sunday’s contest having thrown a combined five innings in the previous four days. On Sunday, Dane De La Rosa, Sean Burnett, Ernesto Frieri, Scott Downs and Jerome Williams shut down the Tigers for the final 21 outs, with Williams keeping them scoreless for three frames.

“With Sean Burnett throwing the ball to his capabilities, Scott California Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey Downs starting to get in the fold and Ernesto Frieri throwing the ball very well — and that’s happened the last couple weeks — we’re starting to see [the bullpen] emerge,” Scioscia said. “Hopefully we are going to start to define some roles better and get the production we need to hold leads. Today, they were terrific.”

Prior to the 13th, all of the Angels offense had come in a third inning that consisted of two hit by pitches, a sacrifice bunt, three grounders — one of which Trout legged out for an infield single — and a double. Pujols’ two-run double was the only ball to leave the infield, but the Angels scrapped out three runs during the frame.

Over the next nine innings, the Angels went scoreless and were 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

But their bullpen kept them in the game and Trumbo ended it.Angels Reggie Jackson Jersey.

“It’s awesome personally, but [what’s] better is that the team is able to get a win,” Trumbo said of his fourth career walk-off homer. “You fight that hard, you want to be able to come out on top.”

Matt Angels Jersey Harvey is, Indeed, Better

What is it about young pitchers? Baseball fans enjoy watching stars of all kinds, of course, but most of all, and more and more, we enjoy watching young, homegrown stars, and young, homegrown star pitchers in particular. Maybe it’s because they’re so rare, the very few that reach their full potential, and grow into all the hopes we’ve placed on them. “There’s no such thing as a pitching prospect,” goes the old baseball saying. Except that every once in a while, there is. And when that happens, or even just when you think it might be happening, you want to be there.

Several times now I’ve gone to a game just because Stephen Strasburg was pitching. This time I went because Matt Harvey was pitching as well. A fair number of Mets fans (at least by current Mets standards) did the same Friday night, including Doc Gooden, who has probably given some thought to excitement over young pitchers himself.Cheap Angels Jersey.

It took a little while to make out what the crowd at Citi Field Angels Jersey  was chanting in the 6th inning, with Strasburg on the mound. Were they in some way celebrating the news out of Boston? No, that would not be announced on the scoreboard for another inning. This was something else.

“HAR-VEY’S BET-TER!… HAR-VEY’S BET-TER!”

Whether or not this is true in general remains to be seen, but it was true on Friday, when Harvey and the Mets won 7-1 against one of the better teams and aces in the league. Strasburg did not pitch as badly as the final score suggests, though he threw too many pitches (of which not enough were strikes), and ran of gas in the sixth inning; he allowed four runs, two earned, and struck out six. Wholesale Los Angeles Angels Jersey.

Harvey, meanwhile, had another excellent start, and his excellent starts are adding up. He has what’s often called an explosive fastball, one that repeatedly touched 99 mph Friday night while moving enough to provoke a menagerie of flailing swings from the Nationals. Most impressive of all was his seventh inning, when he seemed to be headed for trouble, if not disaster. What should have been a double play became an E-4 and a fielder’s choice, leaving the bases loaded, nobody out and a run already in. Terry Collins left his new ace in there — and Collins used that word after the game, “ace,” with what appeared to be only a fleeting moment of hesitation — and Harvey rewarded him by striking out Kurt Suzuki, popping up Roger Bernardina and inducing Denard Span to ground out.Los Angeles Angels Jersey Sale.

“There’s gonna be a lot of years you’re gonna be talking about this guy,” said Collins afterwards, articulating the hope and expectation that, to fans, still feels almost too much like a jinx to say out loud. It’s hard even to type without caveats. If he… always assuming that… as long as…

Matt Angels Jersey Harvey’s career is still very young. And so, yes, it is still a bit early to anoint him as the Mets’ savior, or as the next great ace. But, when you watch him pitch, there is no reason to think it won’t continue –– no red flags, no puzzling anomalies. He throws in the upper-90s, with movement, for strikes; he has a spectacular slider and an effective curve. He seems able to keep his focus and persevere through tense moments. As far as anyone can tell, it’s all there, all the ingredients for that rarest of baseball phenomenons, the young homegrown star pitcher.

Los Angeles Angels of Ahaheim Jersey.Matt Harvey has a lot to live up to, and anything could happen – but, right now, he gives every indication of living up to all of it. He doesn’t actually need to be better than Strasburg for that to happen, but the fact that better than Strasburg is even on the table is a testament to how impressive he already is.

Red Sox Angels Jersey wear ‘Boston’ on their home whites

The Red Sox Angels Jersey proudly took the field on Saturday afternoon against the Royals wearing specially-designed jerseys that had “Boston” stitched on the front.

For most of the team’s history, the home jerseys have said “Red Sox,” but this was a different day.Cheap Angels Jersey.

This was the first baseball game at Fenway Park since the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday, and it was less than 24 hours from when police heroically captured the second bomber in Watertown, Mass.

It was a day packed with emotion, unique from any other in Red Sox history. Wholesale Los Angeles Angels Jersey. 

“It’s amazing. It means everything,” right fielder Shane Victorino said of the “Boston” home white jersey. “I can sit here all day long and talk about how emotional today is going to be or how special it is. To understand that when you take the field, it’s about us as a team, but it’s [more] about the city of Boston and what we’re going to take the field for, and that’s for them.

“Win, lose or draw, to bring the emotions, to bring everybody here today and to be part of the healing process is a special time.”

The Red Sox Angels Jersey will auction off the special jerseys, with all proceeds going to the One Fund Boston, which will help the people most affected by Monday’s tragic events. Los Angeles Angels of Ahaheim Jersey.

There should be a buzz in the air for the second game of Sunday night’s day-night doubleheader, as Red Sox pitching prospect Allen Webster gets the start in his Major League debut.

The 23-year-old right-hander, who is club’s No. 4 prospect, was one of the best stories of Spring Training, blowing hitters away with 97-mph heat. In four Grapefruit League games, he had a 1.64 ERA in four games, striking out 14 batters in 11 innings.

Ryan Dempster will pitch the first game. The Red Sox will use the extra roster spot that is now allotted for doubleheaders to promote Webster from Triple-A Pawtucket.

“He’s a really good-looking young pitcher,” said manager John Farrell, “and he’s rested and he’s ready to go.”

The Red Sox acquired Webster in the blockbuster trade with the Dodgers last August. In two starts for Pawtucket, Webster has a 0.90 ERA.

Angels Jersey Papi notches two hits, gives heartfelt speech in return

There was yet another subplot to Saturday’s emotional day at Fenway Park, as David Ortiz made his return to the team, batting cleanup.Cheap Angels Jersey.

It was Ortiz’s first game for the Red Sox since Aug. 24, 2012, and just his second game since July 20 of last season. For eight months, Ortiz battled back from discomfort in his right Achilles.

In his comeback game, Ortiz went 2-for-4, including an RBI single that tied the game in the bottom of the sixth. Boston went on to beat the Royals, 4-3.

The timing for Ortiz’s return was fitting, because it meant he could take part in the stirring pregame tribute to recognize those who either responded or were impacted by the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon.

As the longest-tenured member of the Red Sox Angels Jersey , Ortiz has always taken enormous pride in the city he plays for.

He was the only player to give a speech during the ceremony.Wholesale Los Angeles Angels Jersey.

“All right. All right, Boston,” Ortiz boomed into the microphone. “This jersey that we wear today,” he said, “it doesn’t say Red Sox. It says Boston. We want to thank you Mayor [Tom] Menino, Gov. [Deval] Patrick, the whole police department for the great job they did this past week.

“This is our f—— city and nobody is going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong.”

Ortiz didn’t plan on going the expletive route, but he admitted his emotions have been raw in recent days over what happened.

“It just came out,” Ortiz said. “It just came out, man. If I offended anybody, I apologize, but I feel like this town needs to be pumped. Man, this past week, I don’t think there was one human being that wasn’t affected by what we’ve got going on down here. Me, myself, I was very emotional, very angry about the whole situation.

“I’ve got to get that out of my chest and just make sure that our fans and everybody in the nation knows that this is a great nation and part of it was how everybody supported each other when this thing went down. I’m just proud and happy to be part of this nation.”

Without question, Boston’s lineup looks stronger with Ortiz in it.Los Angeles Angels of Ahaheim Jersey.

“To see him walk in the clubhouse, the energy and the excitement that always seems to surround him, not only the ability of him as a player and a hitter, but to have him in the middle of the lineup, it lengthens out our lineup,” said manager John Farrell. “And we’ll work through whatever needs he has from a physical standpoint and how he responds to daily play as our guide on how we continue to work him back as an everyday player.”

With Ortiz batting fourth, Mike Napoli moved down to fifth, while Daniel Nava hit sixth and Will Middlebrooks batted seventh.

The 1-2-3 alignment of Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino and Dustin Pedroia stayed intact.

“Particularly a left-handed bat of his production,” said Farrell. “To balance out what Mike has done in the early going and the number of runs he’s driven in, and really, when you look at what Daniel has done in the middle of the order, he’s been an outstanding contributor in his own right. To have Will in the seven-hole in today’s lineup, that’s a pretty potent bat that deep in the lineup today.

With Ortiz coming back, Farrell gave Jackie Bradley Angels Jersey Jr. the news following Thursday night’s game in Cleveland that he was going to Triple-A Pawtucket. Bradley, who is ranked the organization’s No. 2 prospect, had a monster spring and a good opening three-game series at Yankee Stadium, but he finished his first stint with Boston mired in an 0-for-20 slump.

“It should be a very good learning experience,” Farrell said. “When balls are squared up [in the Majors], the defense is much more sharp. The understanding of the information that’s out there and how quickly it circulates, he can become pitched to [easier]. But at the same time, [he should] know that he’s a very important part of our organization and a very good player going forward.

“We fully expect and have the utmost confidence he’s going to be a very good everyday player in time. Every player goes through a transition period, and hopefully this adds to that transition and makes it happen that much quicker for him. Players are going to fail. They’re going to get challenged. The fact that Jackie got it early on in his career, I think will serve him well going forward.” Los Angeles Angels Jersey Sale.

Indians score 19 runs in rout of Astros Angels Jersey

Everything went right Saturday night for the Cleveland Indians.Cheap Angels Jersey.

First baseman Mark Reynolds, hitting seventh in the lineup, knew it would be a good night when he got to bat in the first inning. Reynolds hit a three-run homer, part of an eight-run inning, to propel the Indians to a 19-6 rout of Houston at Minute Maid Park.

“That’s the way it goes,” said Reynolds, who had two of Cleveland’s 22 hits. “We found some barrels. Not hit the balls at people for a change.”

Reynolds thought he was hit by a pitch from Houston’s Philip Humber on the pitch before his home run.

“I said, ‘It hit me,'” Reynolds said he told home-plate umpire Mike DiMuro. “He said, ‘No, it didn’t.’ Well, it did. He said, ‘Well, you didn’t act like it.’ What do you want me to do, cry?”

The Indians added six more runs in the second inning to take a 14-run lead.

“That’s what we talked about before the game, don’t press, have fun, pass the torch to the next guy,” Reynolds  Angels Jersey said. “We did that tonight.”

Scoring 19 runs might help make the Indians relax at the plate.

“It helps guys feel better about themselves,” manager Terry Francona said. “I do think it helps guys loosen up a bit.”Wholesale Los Angeles Angels Jersey.

Nick Swisher started the night 4-for-4, but couldn’t get one more hit to break his career high. Three of his hits were doubles.

Swisher called the win a coming-out party for Cleveland.

“It was great,” he said. “We’ve been struggling. To pull off 19 runs — we got some home runs by our big boys [Reynolds and Jason Giambi]. Got a lot of guys on base. Hopefully, that’s one of those snowball games that really gets us rocking and rolling.

“We’ve got a lot of young guys who showed a ton of maturity today. Things haven’t been going our way. Situational hitting, we took a lot of pride in that tonight. That’s our team. It goes to show how dynamic our lineup is.”

Humber — who pitched a perfect game on April 21 last year — looked defenseless, giving up all eight runs in the first and retiring only one batter.Los Angeles Angels of Ahaheim Jersey.

“It was tough to make any adjustments,” Humber said. “They were jumping on the first thing I threw over the plate every time and hitting the ball hard. I don’t know, what can you say? I made some good pitches that got hit hard and it was a tough night.”

Cleveland left-hander Scott Kazmir made his first Major League start in two years. He couldn’t get the win, throwing only 3 1/3 innings and giving up six earned runs on seven hits.

But Francona wasn’t disappointed.

“It worked out in a lot of ways,” said the manager. “It allowed us to let Kazmir pitch and stretch him out. He got to 90 pitches, which is right where we wanted it to be.

“It would have been nice [to go] five and get the win. That would have been pushing it. He started to get tired the last couple of hitters. He had to go down and throw between innings [while we scored all those runs]. Those are long innings. But we’ll take it.”Los Angeles Angels Jersey Sale.

Kazmir admitted to some nerves after pitching last season in an independent league. “I was a little jittery,” he said. “Overall, there’s stuff I can take out of this start, what not to do. I never really got into the flow of the game. I was half offspeed, half fastballs. I was just not able to get in sync. You want to attack the hitters. I was not able to pitch my game. I’m a guy who pitches off his fastball. I like to attack the strike zone with my fastball.”

Corey Kluber pitched four nearly flawless innings of relief to earn the win. He gave up just two singles, struck out four and walked none.

“I haven’t thrown a lot,” Kluber said. “I’m stretched out because of starting in the Minors. It felt good to get some quality innings under my belt. As long as I’ve been here the bullpen’s been a big strength of the team.”

The only bad news for the Indians was that Asdrubal Cabrera had to leave the game after the top of the first inning with a left wrist contusion.

Cabrera slipped on the steps walking from the clubhouse to the dugout before the game and used his left arm to break the fall. He still started and batted twice in the first inning. He singled off Humber and scored, then grounded out off left-handed reliever Dallas Keuchel to end the inning.

“When he turned around [to bat] right-handed, it started to bother him,” Francona Angels Jersey said.

X-rays were negative.

“It’s a little sore right now,” Cabrera said. “It’s not a big deal. Everything’s good. I don’t feel like it was serious. A little sore. I don’t think [I’ll play Sunday]. I’ll be back soon. Maybe Monday.”
