Chris McCosky The Detroit News Published 9:13 PM EDT Mar 28, 2019 Toronto — Christin Stewart, after he slugged a two-run home run in the 10th inning to give the Tigers a 2-0 win against the Blue Jays on Opening Day Thursday, asked one of the clubhouse attendants if they could get him a game ball. He wanted a keepsake from this day. "Sure," he was told, then he was handed a baseball with a dot on it. Stewart may be a rookie, but he's no dummy. The dot means it was a batting practice ball. He politely asked again, could he please get a game ball. The Blue Jays pitchers, especially starting pitcher Marcus Stroman, were trying to exploit his youthful exuberance Thursday, also. Stroman had struck him out twice, convincingly, even doing a little dance off the mound after he fanned him to end the third inning. "They were kind of messing with him," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He's a kid. But you make a mistake like that one, that one got too much of the plate, and he … [Read more...] about Fool him once, fool him twice, but Tigers rookie Christin Stewart has last laugh

By Peter Larsen | [email protected] | Orange County Register PUBLISHED: January 18, 2019 at 8:48 am | UPDATED: January 18, 2019 at 8:49 am It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youngest ones in curls. There were also other big moments outside the bounds of entertainment — a moon landing, a war that rolled on despite rising protests against it — but those too had implications for pop culture in decades to come. This is 1969 from 50 years on, the good, the bad, the ugly and the … [Read more...] about 50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture
