Vin Scully’s final game will be a road game, in San Francisco, against the Giants. The Giants said today that they are planning a short tribute for him, but not one which will interfere with his broadcast duties. That’s nice.
Also nice: the Giants broadcaster — CSN Bay Area — has announced its own little tribute:
On final day of regular season, Vin's final game, his broadcast of third inning will be carried on CSNBA instead of Kruk/Kuip. #sfgiants
The Royals and Rangers played the first game of spring training today. A few other teams (the Red Sox, Tigers and Twins) played or are currently playing college squads, but Kansas City-Texas is our first matchup of big league teams. Baseball’s back, baby! And you know what baseball means?
Kansas City’s Jorge Soler, who hit 48 homers last year to lead the American League, offered us the year’s first glimpse at recreational baseball murder when he took Kolby Allard out over the left field yard.
