    Ray Herbert, Detroit sandlot ace and 1962 AL All-Star, dies

    Ray Herbert, a 1962 All-Star Game winning pitcher who threw batting practice for his hometown Detroit Tigers for decades after retiring, died peacefully in Plymouth, Michigan, five days after his 93rd birthday. Herbert started his big league career with Detroit in 1950 and pitched for four teams over 14 seasons. Herbert was a part of a generation of Detroiters who flocked to the diamonds of the city's historic Northwestern Field, a sandlot that turned out players such as Willie Horton, Bill Freehan and Frank Tanana.

    Oops! All Astros: Justin Verlander

    Verlander closed out the 2017 season by going 5-0 down the stretch with a 1.06 ERA and a 0.647 WHIP. Maybe you weren’t paying attention... I mean maybe you were, but Verlander led the major leagues in WHIP in each of his three full seasons as an Astro: 0.902 in 2018, 0.803 in 2019, and 0.829 in 2022, making the All Star team in each of those campaigns.

    'You've got to find a way': Tigers' Donny Sands continues to clear obstacles, defy odds

    He’s my big bro,” Sands said. To this day, Acuna serves as Sands’ hitting coach, personal trainer (along with his real brother Bryan), friend, mentor and life coach. He helped keep Sands together emotionally after his father died and he’s been with him on every step of this journey, seven rough years climbing up through first the Yankees’ and then the Phillies’ systems and through the day last September when he and Alma flew out to San Francisco to watch Sands’ make his big-league debut.
