Friday Notes

We're now within six weeks of Royals pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, which is about the time when the amount of time before it finally happens seems far too long to deal with.

By: Andrew Crawford I didn’t get to grow up in San Diego, like many of the tributes start out. I was born there, and we moved to Orlando due to my dad’s job when I was two.  Both branches of the family were there though, and back in the day my mom’s parents bought season tickets in 1970.  My great uncle bought season tickets in 1969, so I guess my grandpa was playing catch...

Legendary Padres announcer Jerry Coleman passes away at 89

It was a certainly a bittersweet Sunday in San Diego. Hours after the Chargers secured an impressive playoff victory in Cincinnati, and moments after the city’s top 20 college basketball team became the first non-Big 12 school to win in Lawrence, Kan., since 2006, San Diego lost perhaps its most legendary sports icon not named Tony Gwynn.
