29-year-old Ted Kremer has Down’s Syndrome, but it hasn’t stopped him from competing in swimming and ballroom dancing. Last month, he got to be the Reds’ batboy for a day. Now just go read the story. Trust me.
The Giants announced on Monday night the signing of outfielder Austin Jackson. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, it’s a two-year, $6 million deal with performance incentives that allow Jackson to earn up to an additional $2.5 million for a total of $8.5 million.
Jackson, who soon turns 31 years old, spent last season with the Indians. In 318 plate appearances, he hit .318/.387/.482 with seven home runs, 35 RBI, and 46 runs scored.
