By gqlshare | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: May 14, 2019 at 7:10 pm | UPDATED: May 15, 2019 at 4:58 am A day after designating Kendrys Morales for assignment, the A’s traded the 35-year-old to the New York Yankees for a player to be named later or cash considerations on Tuesday. Morales, who hit just .204 with one homer and seven RBIs in 34 games with the A’s, should join the injury ravaged Yankees in time for New York’s doubleheader against the Orioles Wednesday. The A’s originally added Morales because of first baseman Matt Olson’s hand surgery, but despite hitting at least 20 homers in each of the last four seasons he never had much of an impact in Oakland. He was let go to make room for Mark Canha, who returned from a wrist injury Monday. Morales is owed roughly $9 million of the $12 million he’ll earn in the final year of a three-year contract. Much of that money will be paid by the Blue Jays, who signed him and dealt him to … [Read more...] about A’s trade Kendrys Morales to New York Yankees

Chris McCosky The Detroit News Published 5:03 AM EDT Apr 3, 2019 New York — He got to second base and all he could do was hop up and down like he was on a pogo stick. "Honestly, I blacked out," said Tigers center fielder Dustin Peterson, after he delivered the go-ahead run in the ninth inning of the Tigers 3-1 win over the Yankees. "I didn't know what to do. All the emotion, that's just what came out of me. "I was amped, pumped. I got my hit, scored the go-ahead run. That was awesome." Peterson, a rookie, was hitless in two pinch-hit at-bats with the Braves last season and he'd gone 0-for-7 so far this season. But against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning of a 1-1 game Tuesday, with Niko Goodrum on first, Peterson ambushed a first-pitch, 95-mph fastball. It left his bat with an exit velocity of 105.4 mph and sailed over the head of left-fielder Mike Tauchman. As first big-league hits go, it'd be hard to top this one — even if he … [Read more...] about Dustin Peterson’s first MLB hit helps Detroit Tigers knock off New York Yankees, 3-1

It created a clear response from Red Sox players, who not only played it in Yankee Stadium after defeating their New York rivals in the series, but also again after winning the World Series. On … [Read more...] about Morning sports update: Aaron Judge blamed Fenway Park for the ‘New York, New York’ ALDS incident

Why don’t we have our own?” said Carmody, vice president and general manager of the Seaport Hotel. “The hotels in Boston would love to have something big on Thanksgiving, as well as the retailers.”After all, the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, not Rockaway Beach. Yet somehow New York has stolen a holiday that by all rights should be ours.

Associated Press Published 11:46 PM EST Nov 15, 2018 The Fighting Irish were regular visitors to the New York area during the first half of the 20th century, when their wanderlust turned Notre Dame football into America’s team. Notre Dame’s famous Four Horsemen rode through upper Manhattan in 1924 at the Polo Grounds. When Knute Rockne implored the Fighting Irish to “Win one for the Gipper” in 1928, it was at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The Fighting Irish played mighty Army every season from 1923-46, all but once in New York City and 21 times at Yankee Stadium, cultivating a huge following of so-called Subway Alumni — like Delaney. The third-ranked Irish return to their East Coast stronghold Saturday to face No. 12 Syracuse (8-2, No. 12 CFP) in the highest-stakes college football game played at Yankee Stadium since the 1946 Game of the Century between No. 1 Army and No. 2 Notre Dame. These Fighting Irish (10-0, No. 3 CFP) also bring national … [Read more...] about Thursday’s football: Notre Dame Fighting Irish revisit New York City legacy
