    Jim Schlossnagle has the Texas A&M baseball team thriving as the Aggies completed a miraculous comeback against the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday. The first year of the Jim Schlossnagle era of Texas A&M baseball is off to an incredibly solid start. The Texas A&M Aggies have won all sorts of games throughout this season and those wins have come in all sorts of ways. Fortunately for the Aggies, and unfortunately for the South Carolina Gamecocks, the most recent A&M win has come in the form of a thrilling comeback. Saturday, somehow, the Aggies found themselves trailing South Carolina by a margin of 9-0 by the time the fourth inning came to a close. Generally, teams lose when they’re trailing by that much. It’s hard to overcome that sort of deficit. And yet, that’s not at all what happened with the Aggies. Texas A&M was able to mount an impressive comeback and snag a win against South Carolina, claiming the series in the process. ???? @brettminnich17 with the WALK-OFF MAGIC!! ????#NCAABaseball x ???? @AggieBaseball pic.twitter.com/yEYqt9BX7C — NCAA Baseball (@NCAABaseball) May...
    Tennessee baseball head coach Tony Vitello is catching flak online with his response to an Auburn Tigers’ bat that was flipped in his team’s direction. The Tennessee baseball team is known for hitting a lot of home runs and having all sorts of fun. The Vols regularly celebrate and make it clear that they are proud of how they’re performing. Of course, when your team celebrates and is known for big gestures and bat flips, you should probably expect that in return when an opponent has success. Tony Vitello, the head coach for Tennessee, had an interesting response after the Auburn Tigers celebrated a go-ahead home run in the top of the ninth inning. As with many home runs, a bat ended up being flipped. Said bat ended up bouncing right up to the Vols’ dugout and Vitello promptly jumped out to snag it and subsequently tossed it right back towards Auburn players who were celebrating. Check out the video for yourself. Tony Vitello was NOT HAPPY about this bat flip from Auburn ???? pic.twitter.com/Wzq6LFI8Sh — Mr Matthew CFB ????????...
    The Tennessee baseball team might just be the best in the country and absurd home runs like this one are a huge reason why the Vols are thriving. Historically, the Tennessee baseball program isn’t all that great. That said, this year’s Tennessee baseball team might just be one of the best the sport has ever seen. If nothing else, the Vols are clearly among the best at hammering home runs. The Vols’ ridiculous ability to hit home runs at seemingly any given at bat is one reason why folks just can’t seem to beat Tennessee this season. Unfortunately for Butch Thompson and the Auburn Tigers, Tennessee is proving that to them tonight. This grand slam to give Tennessee a lead over the Tigers is just ridiculous.

    As the Baylor baseball team beats up on the Kansas Jayhawks, Jared McKenzie’s incredible home run has wowed college baseball fans on Twitter. The Baylor Bears are absolutely crushing the Kansas Jayhawks in Waco right now. The Baylor baseball team has been able to build a remarkable 19-2 lead over the Jayhawks. The Bears appear unstoppable. Arguably the most impressive scoring to happen in the midst of all of this has to be Jared McKenzie’s absurd home run to get the scoring started for the Bears. In the bottom of the first inning, with just a total of seven pitches having been thrown by the Jayhawks, McKenzie decided to send a home run right out of Baylor Ballpark and it looks like the ball may have somehow ended up in the Brazos River. Here it is, the moment youve all been waiting for. This ball was ________. Best adjective wins.#SicEm ????⚾️ | @Jared_McKenzie2 pic.twitter.com/yXnbmBh7KM — Baylor Baseball (@BaylorBaseball) April 15, 2022 It’s insane! Just an incredible home run to put Baylor up 2-0.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Chris Sale is starting his season on the IL for the third straight year. But the Red Sox lefty is making progress in his return from a stress fracture in his ribs. Sale was spotted throwing and playing catch at Fenway Park on Friday, ahead of Boston’s home opener against the Minnesota Twins. That’s a good sign for the 33-year-old. Sale isn’t expected to be back until sometime this summer, but at least Friday’s development was a sign of progress, considering Sale wasn’t even throwing a baseball as of a few weeks ago.

    After taking care of the Ole Miss Rebels on the baseball diamond this weekend, the Tennessee Volunteers are trolling the Rebels on Twitter. The Tennessee Volunteers had a great weekend in Oxford and now the official Tennessee baseball account is having a ball trolling the Ole Miss Rebels. After sweeping the top-ranked Ole Miss baseball team, including two lopsided blowouts, Tennessee posted a wonderful graphic that is something everyone needs to see.

There are references to the infamous mustard bottle and golf ball. There are references to postgame quotes from Ole Miss players who seemingly believed that the Rebels would be able to show up and win on Saturday. Heck, the Vols even included references to reasons why Ole Miss fans believed the Rebels would be able to simply show up and beat Tennessee.

    San Diego Padres pitcher Yu Darvish recruits Seiya Suzuki with Twitter caption. After a disappointing conclusion to their 2021 season, the San Diego Padres and their fans are hopeful for a much better result in 2022. Star pitcher Yu Darvish, who joined the team last year with some mostly mediocre results, is one of the players on the campaign trail. His previous experience playing in Japan could come in handy for the Padres in their pursuit of free agents like outfielder Seiya Suzuki. In fact, Darvish took a swing on Twitter with an image of the two together with a very simple caption.

    The panic and anxiety for baseball fans has finally come to a close with the MLB announcing that the MLB lockout has officially ended.  Get out your mitts and prepare yourself for a dinner of hot dog franks and chicken tenders at the ballpark. That’s because after what’s felt like years of negotiations and plenty of heartache, the MLB lockout is no more. Moments ago, Major League Baseball announced that things have come to an end, and baseball will finally be right around the corner for everyone to enjoy. As you might have been able to guess, millions of people are elated with this news.

    The MLB lockout ending had baseball fans and media celebrating on Twitter while also digging at the league for the unnecessary delay of the 2022 season. Baseball’s long and frustrating lockout is mercifully over. It only took months longer than it needed to and cost fans and players an on-time Opening Day. Despite all that, the important thing is that baseball is back. The days at the ballpark, the hot dogs and home runs, the bat flips and beers, they’re all on the way. What did MLB Twitter have to say about the news? A lot.Baseball fans and media react to end of meaningless MLB lockoutReactions on Twitter were a mix of celebration and chastizement. https://t.co/rKBYgVeNDB pic.twitter.com/ssnzK8uauu — DarthDbacks (@DarthDbacks) March 10, 2022 The MLB lockout began on Dec. 2 after a flurry of activity in the free agent market.

    New York Mets owner Steve Cohen took a shot at fellow owners Wednesday with his activity on Twitter. New York Mets owner Steve Cohen caught some attention Wednesday, not for any negotiations regarding the MLB lockout but, rather, due to his social media presence. Stephen J. Nesbitt of The Athletic documented that Cohen’s Twitter activity was, to put it mildly, notable as it pertains to the other owners in baseball. Steve!

Lesky’s tweet read: Maybe I’m way off here but I don’t think MLB would ever accept an offer from the MLBPA. They want to have the upper hand. They want their offer accepted or denied. — David Lesky (@DBLesky) March 9, 2022 With Cohen liking the tweet, and the attention brought from Nesbitt and Lesky from the liking,...
    The latest round of MLB collective bargaining agreement talks between owners and players lasted just 15 minutes. Yes, you read that correct. There is no right and wrong party to blame for the lack of movement in MLB CBA talks at this point. While the owners made the decision to lock out the players in the first place, the stubbornness on both sides of this debate makes it all the more excruciating to watch play out live. As baseball fans, we’re all tired. Spring training is supposed to bring with it hope and inspiration that even the worst of teams can make a run. Maybe, just maybe. Instead, here we are, wondering if the season will start on time or if there will be a regular season at all. When does spring training start?Pitchers and catchers were supposed to report on February 15. Obviously, that has not occurred, although minor-league spring training is in full swing. Spring training will only start once a new CBA is agreed to. When that happens (if that happens), expect players to report shortly thereafter...
    BOSTON (CBS) — David Ortiz got into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday, the only member of the class of 2022. That means Curt Schilling did not get the call in his final year on the writer’s ballot, which just about everyone expected if you’ve been following Schilling’s post-baseball career. Shortly after Ortiz became a first-ballot Hall of Famer, Schilling sent out a Tweet congratulating his former Boston teammate, asking people to focus on who did get in instead of those who did not. “[David Ortiz] deserved a 1st ballot induction! Congratulations my friend you earned it,” Schilling tweeted. Every year the conversation revolves around who didn’t get in. Like all star voting, who got cheated. I say it every year and especially this year, focus on who did get in. @davidortiz deserved a 1st ballot induction! Congratulations my friend you earned it! #bigpapiHoF — Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) January 25, 2022 Always a polarizing figure, Schilling kept the focus on Ortiz with his tweet.

    The writers responsible for voting on the Baseball Hall of Fame decided not to put Barry Bonds in again and MLB Twitter is fuming about it. This was Barry Bond’s final chance to make it into the Baseball Hall of Fame via ballots cast by the Baseball Writers Association of America. They said no, again. Bonds and other players linked to the steroid era were snubbed by the writers, who did decide to induct Red Sox great Davis Ortiz, despite his own past with PEDs. To say that Twitter fuming over the voting would be an understatement.Barry Bonds Hall of Fame snub had MLB Twitter up in armsI voted for @BarryBonds each year he was eligible for @baseballhall. Roger Clemens too. With respect to colleagues who voted differently, I believe keeping them out is a whitewash of an era of baseball. Its choosing which candidates are virtuous while blindfolded.

    The mascot for the Portland Pickles minor league baseball team got himself in quite the pickle after posting a suggestive selfie on the squad's official Twitter page that looked like a green cotton penis.  Dillon, the popular Pickles mascot, tweeted the picture Wednesday. It showed him seated, wearing the team's white jersey and flashing the top of his furry green finger, which the red-faced team quickly claimed was a thumbs-up sign.  However, the photo was cropped from the neck down, leaving little to the imagination.  The stunt appeared to be done on purpose since he tagged several Twitter accounts  with suggestive names, including Manscaped, Steak-umm, Bush's Beans, Daniel Popper, Senator Scott Wiener, Oscar Meyer, Corn Nuts and Justin Dickmeyer.  Within minutes of the picture being posted, the team ended Dillon's publicized takeover of the Twitter page and called foul on the pickle prank.  'We have ended our mascot takeover,' the team tweeted. 'It's come to our attention that this photo can be misinterpreted as a disturbing image. Dillon would like to go on record and say that he was trying...

    President Joe Biden raised eyebrows and set the internet abuzz Thursday when he used a long-outdated term for black people during a speech honoring veterans. Biden referred to famed baseball player Satchel Paige as "the great Negro of the time" while wishing retired diplomat Donald Blinken a happy birthday during his Veterans Day speech. But he was referencing the fact that Paige spent most of his career in what was known as the Negro Leagues. The term was acceptable in common usage during the 1930s and 1940s, when the legendary pitcher played. Paige also played in Major League Baseball after it was racially integrated. “I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro, at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros and Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson,” Biden said, recounting a win Paige pitched at age 47. Asked about his age, Paige is said to have replied, “I look at it this way: How old would you be if you knew how old you were?” YOUNGKIN GETS REPUBLICANS OFF TO...
    Buster Posey is expected to retire Thursday from the San Francisco Giants and baseball in a move that some around the team and league had wondered about but many never believed would happen this offseason. Posey is coming off a bounce-back year at age 34, as he hit .304, hammering 18 home runs with an OPS of .889 in addition to his typical impressive work behind the plate. The former MVP, three-time World Series champion and seven-time All-Star will be one of just six players in MLB history to retire after a season in which they hit .300 or above. Posey won the Rookie of the Year award and World Series in his rookie 2010 season, then helped anchor two more championship teams in San Francisco. In 2012, he returned from a devastating broken leg suffered in a play at the plate to win MVP while leading the Giants to their second title in three years.

    Explainer-What is the U.S. Senate filibuster and why is everyone talking about it? Parties play with political fire around debt ceiling: The Note When Alex Rodriguez provided baseball analysis in studio for ESPN, he garnered praise for his insight as a former star of the game. His performance as a color commentator has garnered him, shall we say, less praise. All ears were on him again on Tuesday during the Red Sox's 6-2 win against the Yankees in the American League wild-card game on the main ESPN broadcast. Most who heard him weren't praising his work.
