Cody Bellinger is making difficult things look easy

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> The Dodgers can’t lose for winning.On Sunday they fell behind 5-0, largely thanks to Brandon McCarthy’s three wild pitches.They were playing their second baseman (Logan Forsythe) at first, their first baseman (Cody Bellinger) in right, their super-utility man (Kiké Hernandez) at shortstop, their backup catcher (Austin Barnes) at second and a pedigreed shortstop (Chris Taylor) in left.The day droned on, quiet and hot, and then you started seeing things. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The strike zone somehow contracted in the heat. Five Dodgers scored on wild pitches, which hasn’t happened since “baseball” was two words.Kenley Jansen, the closer, stroked a double to the wall and drove in a run. If he’d done that more often as a minor league catcher, he wouldn’t be pitching today. But he also gave up his first walk, four days into the official summer.The Dodgers won, 12-6. They did have one constant, although he only showed up on April 25.Bellinger hit home run No. 23, beat out a fairly routine ground ball to shortstop, sprinted and made a barrel-roll catch in right field, and then fired his 24th home run into the right-field pavilion like American Sniper.The personal history is getting longer with Bellinger and yet the words are drying up. “He is not of this earth!” yells play-by-play man Charley Steiner. If Bellinger had only half as many homers he would still be a sensation.center_img Bellinger says the ball “is looking real big” right now, at least until he hits it, and he said he’s enjoying the “cat and mouse” game with the pitchers. They are not. Tom has eaten a whole nest of Jerrys by now.The second home run prompted Bellinger’s first curtain call.“I don’t know what took so long,” McCarthy said. “He should be three or four curtain calls deep by now.”Yet with all these leisurely trots around the bases, it was revelatory to see Bellinger digging to beat a throw by shortstop Pat Valaika, who kicked everything into gear a little too late. Plus, Bellinger hasn’t played much right field.“I’d played more right than left in Double-A, I think,” he said. “On the catch, it was a weird one. I thought it was more toward center and I started running hard, and then it started tailing toward me and I thought, ‘This is mine,’ and I got a glove on it.”That catch came with two out in the seventh, off Valaika’s bat, and it happened with L.A. down 6-4 and with Rockies on first and second.Hold-the-fort plays like that are easily forgotten, as was the one by Barnes in the second inning. Colorado had scored three times, and Charlie Blackmon, author of 56 RBI from the leadoff spot, shot a hard grounder toward right field with a man on. Barnes scooted and picked it and threw out Blackmon.“Things like that are game-changers,” said Manager Dave Roberts. “But we’re going to keep grinding it out. We have been making guys continue to make pitches. What we’re doing to pitching staffs … there’s a relentless kind of approach to what we’re doing.”Translated, the Dodgers have stepped on home plate 76 times in the past nine games, and have homered in each of their previous 17.And there was serendipity, too. Colorado’s Adam Ottavino was walking off the mound with strike three in his pocket, in the seventh inning, when home umpire Mark Carlson refused to move his right arm. Rockies manager Bud Black did throw up his hands, but Barnes walked, and then came two wild pitches and three Dodgers runs, the last two scoring because catcher Tony Wolters couldn’t locate the ball.If Barnes strikes out, Colorado carries a 6-4 lead into the eighth. Instead the Dodgers led, 7-6, and Bellinger keyed a five-run eighth.No one in all of baseball’s pages has gotten to 22, 23 and 24 home runs quicker than Bellinger. No rookie has hit 24 home runs before the All-Star break since 1933, the first year of the All-Star Game. No rookie except Mark McGwire has had more than six multi-homer games in a season, and McGwire had seven, and Bellinger and the Dodgers have 85 games left.“He’s unconscious right now,” McCarthy said. “It’s great that he can ride this as long as he can.”But with numbers that defy perspective, what keeps a 21-year-old from becoming a Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade inflatable and floating into neverland?“I’m going to come in tomorrow like this didn’t happen,” Bellinger said.Then he paid homage to a clubhouse fixture since 1969, a man who has seen Rookies of the Year stay and go and prosper and fail.“Manny Mota always comes in,” Bellinger said. “He always reminds me that I already got paid for yesterday.”Somehow the days are running together like weird visions in a formidable sun. But no mirage lasts this long.last_img read more

Martin, Jr. Hoops for Horizons Tourna­ment coordinator, said, “We’re inviting everyone in the community to come out and play in Albert’s memory.

He wanted to share that experience with other kids.”Horizons welcomes all friends and supporters to this fun-filled event.

Get ready to play ball — exciting season on tap for NDBA

first_imgThe upcoming season looks very promising for Nelson Baseball on the eve of completion of upgrades to Queen Elizabeth Park in Fairview.Thanks to the many hours of volunteer work, those upgrades should be completed in the next few weeks.“New irrigation system and natural turf infield replaces the hard clay infield we’ve been playing on for a few decades,” said outgoing Nelson and District Baseball Association President Larry Martel.“The City of Nelson is helping to upgrade the player dugouts, the backstop fencing and trees this year.“The outfield banks were overgrown and full of weeds and thorny scrubs which have been cleaned up and re-seeded.”Martel said had increased by 30 percent in 2014 last season in Nelson and NDBA also saw Okanagan Falls, Salmo and Kaslo join the West Kootenay Little League association for our house league schedule. The registration increase saw NDBA increase to 20 teams playing in the Minors — 9-10 years — and Majors 11-12 years.These divisions play a 12-15 game schedule and attend a couple of tournaments during the 10-week season that runs from April to June.Martel said T-ball 5-6 years — and Rookies —7-8 years — also have seen registrations increasing.“These younger baseball players have very limited travel and play all their games and practices at the new Lions park diamond,” he explained.NDBA baseball registration closes Friday (April 1) so that division managers can evaluate and get teams in coaches in place for the start of the West Kootenay League.Practices usually start soon after April 1 and the first games around the April 15th, weather permitting.“The season runs to the end of the school year then a few of the players continue with summer baseball in the American Legion, Little League provincials or with travel baseball teams that attend tournaments in July in the Okanagan or in Montana, Idaho and Washington state,” Martel said.Anyone interested in umpiring should attend at clinic hosted in Castlegar this year in early April before the first games.David Gray is  the new association president for NDBA.last_img read more

Canada announces Indian Day Schools settlement

first_imgAmber BernardAPTN National NewsVictims and survivors of Indian day schools will receive compensation from the Canadian government for the abuses and harms perpetrated against them.On Tuesday Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett announced Canada would settle out of court with litigants and members of a $15 billion class-action lawsuit initiated in 2009.Former students of the day schools will be eligible to receive between $10,000 and $200,000 each in compensation, depending on the harm or abuse they endured.According to the federal government, close to 200,000 Indigenous children attended the federally operated schools since the 1920s — many of whom endured cultural loss and physical and sexual abuse.The lawsuit was filed in 2009 by Garry McLean, who attended the Dog Creek Indian Day School in Lake Manitoba First Nation, on behalf of Indigenous day school survivors.In December the government announced it had reached a settlement, and that details would come early in 2019.McLean, a driving force behind the settlement, died last month.Canada is including in the settlement a $200 million investment in the McLean Day School Settlement Corporation for legacy projects that support healing, wellness, education, language, culture and commemoration.The feds say the settlement represents Canada’s commitment to fulfilling the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action. Action 29 calls on the government to work collaboratively with plaintiffs who were not included in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement “to have disputed legal issues determined expeditiously on an agreed set of facts.”[email protected]@abernardnewslast_img read more
