The Scout

Like many kids growing up during the Great Depression, George Genovese was bitten by the baseball bug, and it’s held firm ever since.

It’s one thing to play an extra-inning game, but it’s quite a different animal to play two games in one

Major League Baseball experienced two 19-inning games within 24 hours over the weekend, giving fans who were willing to stick it out an extra bang for their buck. The Los Angeles Angels beat Boston 5-4 on Saturday night in Anaheim, followed by host Toronto’s 6-5 victory over Detroit on Sunday. The last time that there […]

Go West

SAN DIEGO – Pressure is what you make of it, but there is no doubt that it can weaken or strengthen an individual. For the San Diego Padres’ Ian Kennedy, it taught the 29-year-old right-handed pitcher from Orange County, who is 8-10 with a 3.51 earned-run average, 155 strikeouts and 50 walks, there’s always greener […]
