MLB teams find creative ways to stay energized without fans

The absence of fans didn’t stop Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto from receiving an ovation after hitting a homer to put his team ahead for good.

All that applause Wednesday came from the Reds grounds crew. When they haven’t been keeping Great America Ball Park in tip-top shape, the groundskeepers have loudly cheered for the Reds from the stands.

Teams throughout the major leagues have found different ways to maintain intensity without the benefit of fans in the ballpark. The Milwaukee Brewers have formed a makeshift band in the bullpen. Whenever Minnesota’s Sergio Romo leaves the bullpen to pitch, the other Twins relievers play maracas.

But the most notable example arguably involves the Cincinnati grounds crew.

Votto, who gave the crew noisemakers earlier this season, said ...

Trudy Rubin: Trump's autocrat buddies would applaud his plan for replacing RBG – Fri, 25 Sep 2020 PST

When Mitch McConnell blocked President Barack Obama’s choice to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in March 2016, he claimed he wanted to “let the American people decide” in November elections eight months later.

McConnell’s tender concern for the will of the people has evaporated in 2020.

Even before the late, great Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last Friday night, is laid to rest, the Senate majority leader is urging a vote on her successor be held within the next few weeks. President Donald Trump wants the process completed within weeks, before his term ends on Jan. 20, or even before the Nov. 3 election.

In other words, for Trump’s GOP, the people’s will is no longer paramount – because the people might vote for the opposition...

Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump visit metro, pushing law-and-order message. Dems: What about the pandemic?

Vice President Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump swung through the Twin Cities metro Thursday with a law-and-order message, seeking to frame the civil unrest following George Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis as most notably one of looting and riots.

The narrative that Pence and President Donald Trump’s daughter carried is consistent with the president’s desire to focus less on racial justice and police conduct toward minorities and more on the violence that erupted from demonstrations.

“I promise you, with President Donald Trump in the White House, we are going to have law and order in every city in every state in this country for every American of every race and creed and color, so help us God,” Pence said in opening remarks of the event, which was billed as a ” ‘Cops for Trump’ listening...

Still ticking: ‘Big Ben’ to set franchise mark versus Texans

PITTSBURGH—Randy Fichtner watched the big kid with the strong arm and the sense of invincibility that is the province of the very young and immediately grew worried.

So Fichter, then the Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterbacks coach, suggested to Ben Roethlisberger that he might want to think about getting rid of the ball a little sooner. Push the tempo a little faster. Don’t take so many risks. Absorb fewer hits.

In other words, play it safe.

“And I’ll never forget, he looked at me and says, ‘Randy, then I wouldn’t be me,’” Fichtner, now Pittsburgh’s offensive co-ordinator, said Thursday. “And from that moment, I knew that there’s a reason why he’s been Big Ben.”

Improbably, all these years later, Roethlisberger is still here. Still playing. Still throwing...

Dear Abby: Warring kids are barriers in couple’s relationship

DEAR ABBY: I got married to a wonderful guy 14 years ago, but after a year of marriage, our children (his 10-year-old and my 12- and 13-year-olds) couldn’t stand one another and caused a lot of problems. I was brokenhearted when he gave me divorce papers. I moved out but continued to date him without our kids around.

Seven years ago, after his son moved out, I moved back in, but he won’t ask me to remarry him. My kids get along fine with him, but his son hates me and refuses to come to any holiday or birthday celebration that I host.

Should I move out and move on? I feel like I have wasted 14 years of my life. — HOPELESS IN OHIO

DEAR HOPELESS: I wish you had mentioned why this “wonderful guy’s” son hates you...

Blue Jays clinch post-season berth with win over the Yankees

BUFFALO, N.Y.—Vladimir Guerrero Jr., homered and ace Hyun-Jin Ryu threw seven shutout innings as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 4-1 on Thursday night to wrap up their first post-season berth in four years.

Toronto survived a nervous eighth inning as New York scratched out a run off reliever Anthony Bass, who was pulled after loading the bases with his third walk of the frame.

Rafael Dolis came on and got pinch-hitter Gary Sanchez to fly out on a ball that Randal Grichuk caught against the wall in left-centre field for the third out.

Dolis returned for the ninth and when he fanned Aaron Hicks for his third strikeout of the inning, the party was on at Buffalo’s Sahlen Field.

The Blue Jays celebrated near their dugout, with many players putting on T-shirts that read “Re...

Roseville: Man arrested after ex-wife suffers potential exposure to toxic chemical

Roseville police arrested a man Thursday after his wife was potentially exposed to a toxic chemical in a city park, officials say.

Officers responded about 7:40 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a woman suffering a medical emergency in Central Park at 2540 Lexington Avenue, where she had brought her children for a custody visit with her ex-husband, according to a news release issued by the Roseville Police Department.

Following further investigation, police arrested the woman’s ex-husband, who was interviewed by investigators on Thursday.
