After learning about TitoSextGate, thank goodness Jon Bois of Baseball Nation can give us a refreshing, uplifting social media success story. It’s about George Brett. And how he got his labradoodle, Charlie, back after he got lost in the rain.

Don’t even say it. Yes, it is a slow news day. What do you want? We’ve already given you sex and crime, for crying out loud. Everything else should be gravy at this point.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
