Another Weekly edition of the Good, Bad & Ugly.
The Good: 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Class- One of the best Baseball HOF Classes ever, along with World Series Winning managers Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa & Joe Torre, with former Braves Teammates Tom Glavine & Greg Maddux with White Sox 1st Baseman The Big Hurt Frank Thomas, celebrated & honored in Cooperstown, NY at The Baseball Hall of Fame which was well deserved. Adoring a crowd of nearly 50,000 individuals who were there to witness this great Hall of Fame Class.
The Bad: Cincinnati Reds Hitting over the last 7 days- The Reds hitting over the last 7 days has helped put them in a hole in the NL Central, only 12 runs scored, 36 hits, 12 RBI’s, .170 batting average & .229 OBP(on Base). Just bad.
The Ugly: Misspelled Troy Tulowitzki jerseys on Saturday Night- The Colorado Rockies gave out 15,000 replica jerseys honoring All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki on Saturday night, but the back of them read “Tulowizki” instead — minus the second “T.” The Rockies said they discovered the misspelling at some point, but instead of disappointing those looking forward to receiving the jersey, the team said in a statement that it decided to hand them out anyway.
The Rockies plan to remake the jersey with the correct spelling later in the year, and fans can exchange Saturday night’s for the new one at the stadium or at one of the team stores.
Fans who exchange the jersey also will get a free ticket to a future 2014 or ’15 game.
Tulowitzki entered Saturday night leading the National League in batting average (.340) and was third in the NL in home runs (21).
On Tuesday, he was put on the 15-day disabled list with a thigh injury.
