    It could be home sweet home for Aaron Judge and Todd Frazier

    The New York Yankees return to the Bronx for their first home game since the All-Star Break on Tuesday, and there are two players for whom this game is notable. It’s the first home game for Judge since he won the Home Run Derby, and it’s the first home game for Todd Frazier since being traded to the Yankees by the White Sox.

He is hitting .377 (second in the majors) with a .489 on-base percentage (first) and an .834 slugging percentage (first) at home. He has 21 home runs in 42 home games (no one else has more than 17).

Tommy Kahnle got the final out in the seventh, but Betances walked two and gave up a run-scoring double to Billy Hamilton with two outs to make it 3-2. With the tying run on third, Girardi went to Warren, who got Eugenio Suarez on

    Bill Belichick’s High School Yearbook Photo Shows He Was Destined For Greatness

    Yes, Bill Belichick always has been so serious. Sports Illustrated on Tuesday used Twitter to share a photo of the New England Patriots head coach’s high school yearbook entry from his senior year. Belichick graduated from Annapolis (Md.) High School in 1970, and here’s how he presented himself to the world at large. As you can see, he barely cracked a smile as he posed for posterity. Perhaps football already was front and center in his mind. Belichick’s chosen quote is from Abraham Cowley’s poem “A Wish,” and as The Boston Globe pointed out ahead of Belichick’s fifth Super Bowl win as a head coach, the poem might have laid the groundwork for Belichick’s “It is what it is” outlook on life.
