Wholesale MLB Authentic New York Yankees Aaron Judge Jerseys China 2018

The countdown to Spring Training started as soon as the Astros prevailed in Game 7 of the World Series in Dodger Stadium, giving them their first title in franchise history.

• Complete Spring Training schedule
Naturally, it didn’t take long for baseball fans to put a great 2017 season to bed and start thinking about those glorious, sunny days next February, when our game comes back into focus with the clarity of a crack of the bat, and we hear those four magical words — pitchers and catchers report — once again.
It officially became time to look forward to 2018 when MLB announced its exhibition schedule on Monday.
The first exhibition game is on Wednesday, Feb. 21, when the D-backs host Arizona State University at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz. Grapefruit and Cactus League play officially begins on Feb. 23, with the next day featuring the first full slate including all 30 MLB teams. The World Series champs will start their home schedule at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches vs. the club with which they share the one-year-old facility, the Nationals.
While it’s a bit early to see how the 30 rosters in the American and National Leagues might be rearranged over the coming Hot Stove months, with the Winter Meetings set for early next month and more than 100 free agents on the board and waiting to negotiate, the teams we just saw in October will be gearing up and ready to go.
The NL champion Dodgers get right back into action that same Friday with a game at their spring home of Camelback Ranch by hosting their facility neighbors, the White Sox.
The team that took the Astros to seven games in the AL Championship Series, the Yankees, are sure to attract crowds at their ballpark, George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., for their opener on Feb. 23 against the Tigers. The Yankees are hoping for big things once again from their big No. 99, outfielder Aaron Judge, who was the unanimous choice for the AL Rookie of the Year Award and finished second in AL MVP Award voting to Houston’s Jose Altuve.
Also on that day, fans will get to watch the D-backs, who will take the field vs. the Rockies, whom they defeated in the NL Wild Card Game, and with whom they happen to share the spectacular Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Other postseason teams from 2017 making their spring debuts on Feb. 23 include the Twins and Red Sox, who play each other in Fort Myers, Fla., the Cubs, who start things off in Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix against the Milwaukee Brewers, and the Indians, who play the Reds in their shared home park in Goodyear, Ariz.
The rest of the day’s full big-league slate includes the following matchups: Cardinals vs. Marlins, Rays split squad vs. Orioles, Pittsburgh vs. Rays split squad, Phillies vs. Blue Jays, Braves vs. Mets, Angels vs. A’s, Brewers vs. Giants, and Mariners vs. Padres.
That huge day will carry over into the next month of nonstop action in the warmth of the new season.
And in addition to the regular Spring Training games we’re accustomed to seeing, there will be games scheduled for venues outside the realms of traditional Cactus and Grapefruit League play.
Split squads of the Indians and Cubs will play two games on March 17-18 in Las Vegas, while select exhibition games at Major League and Minor League ballparks will be played from March 24-27, including two games between the Blue Jays and Cardinals in Montreal.
As always, select games will be available on MLB.TV as the spring schedule closes in on the regular season, which begins for all 30 teams on Opening Day on Thursday, March 29. That start date is the earliest in Major League history, and it will be the first time since 1968 that every team will play its first regular-season game on the same day.

Wholesale MLB Authentic New York Yankees Jerseys China 2018

NEW YORK — Back in the Bronx, the big guys delivered.
Greeted by an array of “All Rise” signs in a ballpark that fits their style, Aaron Judge hit a three-run homer and made a pair of sparkling catches, leading CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees over the Houston Astros 8-1 Monday night and cutting their deficit to 2-1 in the AL Championship Series.

Todd Frazier hit a go-ahead, three-run homer into the short porch in right field in the second inning against Charlie Morton.
The 6-foot-7 Judge entered in a 4-for-31 (.129) post-season slump that included one home run, four RBIs and 19 strikeouts. The slugger capped a five-run fourth with a laser of a drive to left field off Will Harris and robbed Yuli Gurriel and Cameron Maybin of extra-base hits.
“You see a guy put his head basically through the wall and then dive,” Frazier said. “The ground is going to shake when he hits the ground.”
Sabathia, almost as big at 6-foot-6, allowed three hits over six scoreless innings for his first post-season win in five years. The Yankees stopped a seven-game ALCS losing streak dating to Sabathia’s victory over Texas in 2010 — when Judge had just started his freshman year at Fresno State.
After a pair of 2-1 losses in Houston, the Yankees led 8-0 after four innings.
“Just the energy, the fans,” Sabathia said. “We can kind of feed off their energy.”
New York improved to 4-0 at home this post-season. The Yankees were an AL-best 51-30 at home this season.
“We’re somewhat built for this ballpark,” manager Joe Girardi said.
Houston scored on a bases-loaded walk in the ninth before post-season star Jose Altuve grounded into a game-ending double play with the bases loaded.
Sonny Gray starts Game 4 for New York in the best-of-seven series on 11 days’ rest Wednesday against Lance McCullers Jr.
Frazier got the Yankees rolling, taking an awkward hack at a low, outside fastball and slicing an opposite-field drive over the right-field scoreboard.
“You don’t think it’s going, just because how unorthodox the swing was,” Frazier said.
Judge used his height and long left arm to make a leaping catch with his left shoulder slamming into the right-field wall against Gurriel starting the fourth.
Being a rookie, he politely waited outside the dugout for all the veterans to descend the steps after the third out — as he always does — then capped a five-run bottom half with a laser of a line drive that just cleared the left-field wall.
Then in the fifth, he sprinted into short right for a diving backhand catch on Maybin.
On the first chilly night of the autumn with a game-time temperature of 57, Sabathia relied on the sharp, slow slider that has helped revive the former flamethrower’s career.
Pitching with caution to Houston’s dangerous lineup, he walked four, struck out five and pitched shutout ball for the first time in 21 career post-season starts. During the regular season, he was 9-0 in 10 starts following Yankees’ losses.
“It’s weird, me being 37, smoke and mirrors, getting a shutout,” Sabathia said.
Adam Warren followed with two hitless innings, Dellin Betances walked his only two batters and Tommy Kahnle finished. Houston had four hits, leaving it with just 15 over the first three games, and is batting .169 in the matchup.
Morton was chased after 3 2/3 innings and allowed seven runs and six hits: three infield singles, a bloop single to centre, a double that Maybin allowed to fall in left and Frazier’s homer.
“”If you were to show me a video of the swing, show the pitch speed and the location, I would have never thought that,” Morton said. “That was unbelievable.”
A New Jersey native who grew up a Yankees fan, Frazier entered 7 for 18 against Morton with two home runs. With Frank Sinatra’s version of “Fly Me to the Moon” as his walk-up music, Frazier hit not-quite a moonshot, driving a pitch just 18 1/2 inches above the dirt 365 feet with pretty much just his left arm. That gave the Yankees their first lead of the series.
Frazier motioned to his family in the stands and looked at his left wrist.
“I’m pointing to them and saying: What time is it? It’s my time,” he said.
He remembers sitting in the seats at old Yankee Stadium watching Jim Leyritz’s 15th-inning home beat Seattle in the 1995 playoffs.
“It’s such a cool feeling,” Frazier said. “I wish everybody could feel basically what I’m going through.”
Houston loaded the bases with two outs in the third on a pair of two-out walks around Alex Bregman’s single. But Carlos Correa popped out on a fastball in on his fists.
“I know he likes to get his hands extended,” Sabathia said.
Sabathia raised both arms and pointed toward Judge after his catch in the fourth.
“I don’t know what got hurt worse, the wall or him,” plate umpire Gary Cederstrom was heard to say by one of Fox’s microphones.
New York broke open the game in the bottom half. Chase Headley hit a run-scoring infield single — ending an 0-for-28 slide by New York designated hitters in the post-season. Brett Gardner was hit on a leg by a pitch, loading the bases, and Harris came in and threw a wild pitch that allowed Frazier to come home from third.
“Judge did what Judge has done 50-plus times, which is hit the ball out of the ballpark when he gets a pitch to hit,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.
ALTUVE’S WEB GEMS
Altuve made two fine stops on Did Gregorius, first a backhand stop on his third-inning grounder and then a shuffle pass to Harris covering first for the final out of the fourth after a hard grounder off first baseman Marwin Gonzalez’s glove.
APPLAUSE
Girardi, booed by fans after failing to call for a replay in Game 2 of the Division Series, was cheered when introduced.
“It’s a reminder of how quickly things can change in your life,” he said.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Yankees: RHP Luis Severino is on track to pitch a Game 6. He was removed after four innings and 62 pitches in Game 2 because Girardi felt he was “underneath” the ball. Girardi said Severino did not need any tests and is OK.
Asked whether Severino was understanding, Girardi said: “I think two days later, yes, a little bit more.”
“I asked him if he still hated me, and he said, ‘no,’” Girardi added.Wholesale MLB Authentic Edwin Encarnacion Jerseys China 2017

Wholesale MLB Authentic Edwin Encarnacion Jerseys China 2017

CLEVELAND — As fireworks lit up the night sky and the Cleveland faithful erupted in cheers, the Indians celebrated their third walk-off win of the season by mobbing Edwin Encarnacion at home plate. Encarnacion played the role of the hero, as his walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 11th lifted the Indians over the Angels, 11-7, in Tuesday night’s series opener at Progressive Field.

Encarnacion’s walk-off blast — his 21st homer of the season — came on a first-pitch slider from Angels reliever Bud Norris and gave the Indians their fifth straight win to maintain their 1 1/2 game lead over the Royals in the American League Central division. It is Encarnacion’s sixth career walk-off homer and his 10th career walk-off hit.
Full Game Coverage
With Encarnacion’s grand slam, the Indians became the first team in Major League history to hit two grand slams in one game with the second being a walk-off.
“I bet it does [feel good]. I bet it does,” Indians manager Terry Francona said of Encarnacion’s first walk-off hit with the Indians. “I know it felt good to me. Any time you get mobbed by your teammates, that’s a good feeling.”
• Grand slams mean 40% off pizza
Encarnacion’s slam in the 11th was the first walk-off grand slam for the Indians since Nick Swisher did so on June 19, 2014, also against the Angels.
“It’s a wonderful feeling,” Encarnacion said through team translator Anna Bolton. “Yes, this is my first walk-off with the Indians and it’s an amazing feeling and it felt amazing to connect with the ball and to hit it out like I did.”
The Angels, who fell to 49-52 and now sit four games back of the second American League Wild Card spot, crawled their way back into the game thanks to a three-run homer from Kole Calhoun and a two-run shot from Luis Valbuena. Valbuena also added an RBI single, and Yunel Escobar drove in the tying run with an RBI double.

“There’s some positive to it,” Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons said. “We’re down early by quite a bit of runs, but it shows what this team has been about all year. We didn’t throw in the towel. We battled, we chipped away. We had two good innings and ended up tying the game. We had a couple chances, and they made some good plays or we ran into some outs, but we showed fight today.”
Both starters had a tough time on the mound. Indians right-hander Mike Clevinger went 4 1/3 innings and allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out five. Angels starter Jesse Chavez did not fare any better, allowing seven runs, five hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings.

“It looked like [Clevinger] was trying not to give up any runs as opposed to just limiting the damage,” Francona said. “I think maybe that comes with maturity. After we score the seven first, he ran [a] full count to the first hitter. You’d like to see him really attack after that. Make them earn every single bit of what they get.”
The Indians scored seven in the second inning thanks to Bradley Zimmer’s first career grand slam and Michael Brantley’s solo homer. Jose Ramirez added an RBI double, and Giovanny Urshela picked up an RBI on a bases-loaded walk.

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Zimmer’s first slam: After the Indians were set down in order by Chavez in the first, they broke through in a big way in the second. Chavez gave up back-to-back doubles and later issued three straight walks to plate the Tribe’s first two runs. With the bases loaded, Zimmer stepped up to the plate. Chavez fell behind 2-0 before getting a fastball over, breaking a streak of 11 straight balls. With the count 3-1, Zimmer belted a fastball over the heart of the plate a projected 435 feet to the bullpen in center for his first career grand slam to give the Indians the 6-0 lead. More >

“It was awesome,” Zimmer said. “I mean, he was struggling to throw strikes there. I just stayed with my approach and didn’t give in. He left the ball out over the plate, and I put a pretty good swing on it.”
“Today was a case of the walks,” Chavez said. “Walks killed me today. … I didn’t get ahead, and by not getting ahead, you kind of pigeonhole yourself to come over the plate. To a hitter like [Zimmer] who’s hot, you don’t want to elevate a little too much when you come over the dish, and that sinker just kind of stayed flat.” More >
• Statcast™ of the Day: Brantley’s sweet defense
Angels draw even: The Angels fought their way back from a 7-0 deficit and eventually tied the ballgame, 7-7, in the top of the sixth. After Kaleb Cowart led off the inning with a single to right off Indians reliever Nick Goody, Escobar dug in. He connected on a 1-0 fastball and drove a sinking liner to center. Zimmer charged in and made a diving attempt, but the ball skipped by him and bounced to the wall. Even though Escobar was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple, the hit allowed Cowart to score the tying run all the way from first.

“That’s a great comeback to give yourself a chance at that game,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.
“It was a big play right there,” Zimmer said. “It gets them back in the game, so maybe [I was] a little too aggressive right there. I got a good jump and thought I could make a play, but like I said a little too aggressive and it didn’t work out.”

QUOTABLE
“I thought they really picked each other up. Both bullpens really did a great job. We had to kind of stagger it a few times. Each guy kind of picked each other up and [Bryan] Shaw was tremendous. [Dan Otero] with a big out getting [Albert] Pujols. There was a lot of good things. It was kind of a fun game to be a part of. It was a weird game. There was a lot going on.” — Francona, on the bullpen

UPON FURTHER REVIEW
After catcher Yan Gomes drew a leadoff walk against Angels reliever Blake Parker in the bottom of the eighth, Francona opted to bring in Erik Gonzalez to pinch-run. With Urshela at the plate, Gonzalez took off for second, but Martin Maldonado threw to shortstop Andrelton Simmons covering to catch him stealing. The Indians challenged the call at second, but after a one minute and 20 second review, the call stood.

BRANTLEY MAKES FIVE-STAR CATCH
With Ben Revere at the plate to lead off the top of the eighth, the Angels left fielder blooped a ball to shallow left near the line. Brantley came charging in and made a diving catch on a ball that had a 7 percent catch probability, per Statcast™, to rob Revere of a leadoff hit. Brantley covered 66 feet in 3.8 seconds to make the diving catch, making it a five-star play, his second of the season. On catches with more than 50 feet distance needed and under four seconds of opportunity time, Brantley is tied for the second-lowest catch probability this season.

SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS
Per Statcast™, Zimmer’s grand slam in the second had an exit velocity of 112.2 mph, which is the hardest regular season home run for Cleveland since Statcast™ was introduced in 2015. The only homer that was hit harder in that span came from catcher Roberto Perez in the 2016 postseason, when he hit a 112.9 mph blast.
Tuesday marked the first time that the Indians had two grand slams in a game since September 24, 1999, when Dave Roberts and Manny Ramirez each hit one in an 18-4 victory over the Blue Jays.
WHAT’S NEXT
Angels: Right-hander Ricky Nolasco (4-11, 5.13 ERA) will start the second game of the three-game series between the Angels and Indians on Wednesday night at 4:10 p.m. PT at Progressive Field. Nolasco has logged a 5.54 ERA in seven career appearances against Cleveland.
Indians: The Indians will send right-hander Carlos Carrasco (10-4, 3.62 ERA) to the mound for Wednesday’s 7:10 p.m. ET tilt against the Angels at Progressive Field. Carrasco is coming off a strong outing against the Giants, where he took a no-decision after allowing two runs on six hits while striking out six in six innings of work.

Cheap WBC Team USA Baseball Jerseys 2017

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Chris Archer will throw the first pitch for Team USA in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, and that’s fitting. He’s everything Major League Baseball had in mind when it created the event.

He brings to the baseball festival a fresh face, powerful arm and heavy thirst to compete against the best players from around the world.
Manager Jim Leyland jokes that Archer recruited Team USA, not the other way around as it normally works. There’s a lot of truth in that, as Archer has pictured himself since the original run in 2006, when he was a high school senior in Clayton, N.C.

Rules for 2017 Classic
“I volunteered my services over 10 years ago, whenever it started,” Archer said. “I knew from that minute on I wanted to be a part of something special. … My favorite players were playing — [Derek] Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Roger Clemens … at that time they were all peaking, they were in their prime. I was glued in. I was locked in. To be considered one of the best in the country, like those guys were, it’s the highest honor I’ve achieved in my baseball career.”
Archer has had international success before, shutting down a loaded Cuban team to help a U.S. team of Minor Leaguers qualify for the Pan American Games in 2011. But he and his teammates don’t know what it would mean to win the Classic, because they haven’t done it in three tries.
Ichiro Suzuki blasted a leadoff homer off Jake Peavy in the semifinal game at Angel Stadium in 2006, and the Americans have been off stride in the event ever since.
Leyland, the longtime Tigers manager who won a World Series with the Marlins in 1997, knows all about USA’s 10-10 record. He also knows Joe Torre has rounded up a team built around perennial All-Stars Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Buster Posey, Andrew McCutchen and Giancarlo Stanton, among others.
“It’s been a process to put this thing together,” Leyland said Tuesday. “Joe’s put a lot of pressure on me. He’s given me a good team. It’s exciting.”
Leyland, who is coming out of retirement for the occasion, admired the Dominican Republic’s 8-0 romp through the Classic in 2013 and dreams of having that type success after his team gets rolling with its Pool C opener against Colombia on Friday (6 p.m. ET, live on MLB.TV and MLB Network at Marlins Park.
He won’t look ahead, however, as he knows there are no guarantees in a pool that includes Canada and the defending champions, whom the U.S. will face on Saturday night (6:30 ET, live on MLB.TV and MLB Network).
There are, of course, notable roster omissions, who are either rehabbing injuries or declined the opportunity to play. But Leyland has been blown away by the desire of his players to represent their country, praising “commitment” as the strength of his team.
“This is a pretty special thing,” Leyland said. “I’ve worn a lot of jerseys but I’ve never worn one like this. … It’s different putting this jersey on, obviously. I think we all know what that means.”

Archer believes the time is right for this version of Team USA to roll all the way through to Dodger Stadium, then bring home the Classic championship in the March 22 final. He referenced the country’s political climate.
“Given the timing and the circumstances of our country, I think it’s a great opportunity for us, temporarily, to show we are united, regardless of the turmoil and things going on here and other places in the world,” Archer said. “So it’s always been a dream. And what’s going on in the country right now makes it even better.”
What kind of statement can Team USA make?
“Just that we are all unified, at least in my opinion,” he said. “And it is a beautiful country of diversity and freedom and a lot of other things that other countries don’t have. So for this moment in time, for this next two weeks, we’re going to put on this jersey with pride and show we’re diverse, we’re united and what USA is really all about.”
Despite unsuccessful efforts to add more elite pitchers, the United States will still have a deeper rotation than its rivals in the tournament.
Leyland plans to use two starters — probably Marcus Stroman and Tanner Roark — against the Dominicans on Saturday, with Royals lefty Danny Duffy attacking Freddie Freeman and Canada’s lefty-leaning lineup Sunday. Mariners starter Drew Smyly was a last-minute addition to the roster, replacing catcher A.J. Ellis to give Leyland a starter if a tiebreaker game is needed Monday.
“I’m happy with the guys who want to be here,” Archer said. “If there’s any doubt or any uncertainty with somebody, it’s better that they stay home, because that’s what this is all about. This is about people who want to be here, who want to represent the game, who want to grow the game and want to represent their country.”
The right guy is starting Game 1.
