Much was made during this year’s Little League World Series (“LLWS”) back in late August about the fact that Little League participants, mostly 12- and 13-year-olds, should somehow be paid for being in the LLWS. The arguments were particularly strong this year since ESPN, which was finishing up an eight-year, $30.1 million deal with Little League to televise the LLWS, had just signed a new eight-year deal, but this time for $76 million.

There are, of course, emotions running Continue reading

Steve Kallas (TheSTN) – Analyzing A Key Play In Game 4 Of Dodgers-Cardinals

While everyone knows by now that the biggest play in the St. Louis Cardinals clinching victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers was that three-run homer by Matt Adams off Clayton Kershaw, the second most important play of the game seemed to slip through the cracks from an analysis standpoint. WHAT WAS THE PLAY? Well, the Dodgers had taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the sixth and had runners on first and third with two outs, threatening to score more. A.J. Ellis, who had an unbelievable series against the Cardinals (7-13 with a double, a homer and four walks, Continue reading
