Much of the reporting of Jonathan Loaisiga’s first start focused on how similar his results were to his Major League performance in 2018. Loaisiga displayed electric stuff in his first start of 2019, but he struggled to get outs multiple times through the order, and was unable to pitch deep into the game, forcing the Yankees to go to the bullpen after just 4 innings (and admittedly, just 70 pitches). Lost in the analysis of results was the recognition that Loaisiga did not achieve those results in exactly the same way as last season. As a disclaimer, super-small sample size certainly applies in this case, however I would like to highlight some trends that I plan to track when Loaisiga pitches this season.Read More
Our own Lincoln Mitchell will be speaking in New York City on November 13 as he promotes his brand new baseball book!
Yesterday, I had the great pleasure to participate in a comprehensive tour of Manhattan through New York Sports Tours. (I will post a detailed review of this fantastic experience within the next few days.)
My initial reaction of the entire experience can be summed up in one word - "Wow!" Everything was first-rate. The quality of the program was tremendous. Every sport is discussed on the tour - not just baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. The tour also explains how sports plays a role in the history of New York - and the USA. Every participant on the tour learned new things. It was a shared experience, full of information, learning, and fun.
The dinner at Keens at the conclusion of the tour was a particular highlight. Yesterday, we had the joy of spending time and conversing with long-time Yankees publicity director and author Marty Appel. What a highlight!
This is a venture in which every New York sports fan should participate. New York Sports Tours is a must-see experience in the city. It earns an A+.
More to come...
One of the great new experiences in New York City for sports fans is a venture known as New York Sports Tours. Described on their web page as, "An Intimate, Guided, Multimedia Story Ride to Dozens of Manhattan Locations from Sports History Followed by Lunch or Dinner with a New York Sports Personality at Legendary Keens Steakhouse," this experience is taking the city by storm. The program and experience came to fruition in 2018 and has become one of New York's best new experiences.
Recently, I had the great fortune of talking with Mr. Jordan Sprechman who is the founder of this great new enterprise…Read More
