Rashad McCants doesn’t plan on using the Big3 league as a way back to the NBA.
He has his sights on the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
The International Olympic Committee recently added 3-on-3 Cheap Jerseys In Toronto basketball to the Games, and McCants said that was “part of the rollout plan” when rapper Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz founded the new 3-on-3 professional league this year.
“That’s what makes all the players really excited to be a part of this league,” McCants told Omnisport this week.
In Bogaerts, the Red Sox have, if not the oddest of ducks, then certainly an unusual one: a big, strong up-the-middle player who, more than anything else, puts the ball in play in an era devoted to anything but.
Bogaerts’ style would fit well in previous eras less focused on power. We all dig the long ball, and in any given situation a strikeout can be exhilarating, but what baseball really needs more of is hits. Balls put in play — singles, doubles and the occasional triple — are what we love baseball for, the athleticism of the players, the speed and the teamwork, and the precision of the game.
Otherwise, baseball turns into a combination of darts and a driving Cheap Jerseys Mastercard range. It’s batting and pitching practice put together.
Bogaerts is bringing old-school baseball back, and that might be the most valuable part of his game.
