SANDUSKY, Ohio — Things are getting wild at Cedar Point. New for the 2018 season is Steel Vengeance, a record-breaking roller coaster that will be the tallest of its kind.

It was at the Tigers/Giants game in San Francisco that Jarret figured he'd try to make a move in person, walking past two security guards and bending over a railing to get to the dugout that Erin was reporting from. Impressed by his sly ability to trick security just to be able to introduce himself, Erin decided to give him a chance.
