A-Rod gets hit, walk in debut
5 Mar 2015 at 5:50am
TAMPA, Fla. -- It took nearly 18 months for Alex Rodriguez to get back on a baseball field -- and just one at-bat to get back into the swing of things with a single his first time up in Wednesday's spring training game between the Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies at Steinbrenner Field. A-Rod finished his day 1-for-2 with a walk and left the game in the sixth inning, having turned a mixed early greeting to cheers by the time he was done. "I was happy I just made contact, and I was pleasantly surprised it was a base hit," Rodriguez said of his first plate appearance of the spring. "I was a little nervous. I told [plate umpire Marty Foster] to take it easy on the old man -- it's been a long time since I've been in the box." It had been a long time between hits in a major league game for A-Rod, stretching back to the eighth inning of a game at Yankee Stadium against the San Francisco Giants on Sept. 22, 2013. But,...
Giancarlo Stanton's mask not a first
4 Mar 2015 at 7:00pm
As you might have heard by now, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, whose 2014 season was ended prematurely by a fastball to the face, has been wearing a face-mask attachment on his batting helmet this spring. It looks a lot like a football face mask but with one crucial difference: It's been personalized with a "G" -- Stanton's first initial. Stanton is, to Uni Watch's knowledge, the first MLB player to have a personalized element on his mask. But he's far from the first to wear a face-guard attachment on his helmet, and he's not even the first to wear a football-style mask. With that in mind, let's take a trip down memory lane and revisit a few of the ballplayers who've commingled the gridiron and the diamond by putting football-style face masks on their batting helmets: Dave Parker, Pirates, 1978: Any discussion of specialized baseball headgear has to begin with the Cobra. After fracturing his jaw and cheekbone in a home plate...
Adrian Peterson, Vikings meet
5 Mar 2015 at 7:20am
Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman spent more than four hours at Adrian Peterson's home outside Houston on Wednesday afternoon, meeting with the 2012 NFL MVP to discuss his feelings about returning to the Vikings next season. When contacted by ESPN shortly after the meeting, Peterson said it went well but added that he wished to keep the details private. "I appreciate Rick [Spielman] and Coach [Mike] Zimmer coming down to see me today. We had a great dialogue and they were able to understand where I was coming from and concerns my family and I still have. We respect each other and hopefully the situation can pan out so that everyone involved is content," Peterson said in a statement released to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Spielman and Zimmer arrived at Peterson's house around noon Wednesday, meeting with the running back in person for the first time since he was placed on the commissioner's exempt list...
