In fact, they need a complete makeover.Well, next year they are getting rid of the blue home jerseys and making orange their primary.makes one wonder if they break out an ALL ORANGE Monochrome set…?There’s no reason why the Donkos couldn’t add orange pants next year, especially with the white jerseys. That way the navy blue stripe will match up with both the white and orange pants.I remember when they went to these uniforms in 1997…I believe the monochrome was supposed to be the primary uniform, until John Elway said there was no way he was wearing that clown suit on the field.

Sisco’s demotion latest head-scratching development for Orioles

first_imgHours after Chance Sisco was originally penciled into Sunday’s lineup, the Orioles sent the 23-year-old catcher to Triple-A Norfolk.It was a surprising announcement since manager Buck Showalter had just implied after the 10-4 win over Miami that Sisco was scratched due to being under the weather.“I’m afraid he’s coming down with [something],” Showalter said. “He hasn’t slept in two or three days. … Just talking to him before the game, his energy level. He was ready to go. Just didn’t think it was in his best interest with the off-day tomorrow, but we’ll see. A lot of factors. That was the principal one. He just hadn’t slept any. It’s hard enough to play this game when you have.”Sisco went from starting to being pulled from the lineup to being optioned to the minors in a little over six hours. Weird.To be clear, the rookie isn’t exactly having a great season and has numbers that would definitely warrant a demotion if the club were even remotely in contention. He’s batting just .218 with a .328 slugging percentage and has struck out a whopping 35.5 percent of the time, a rate not far from Chris Davis territory (37.6 percent). However, his .340 on-base percentage is third on the club behind only Manny Machado and Danny Valencia, and a number of others on this roster deserve to be jettisoned before Sisco if we’re basing this solely on performance on a last-place club.Sisco’s defense has been scrutinized throughout his professional career, and he had thrown out just one of the last 18 runners attempting to steal after surprisingly gunning down nine of the first 18 this season. His average pop time — the time from the moment the pitch hits the catcher’s mitt to the moment the ball reaches the fielder at the base a runner is attempting to steal — is still too slow and his arm strength lacking while his pitch-framing metrics also rank among the bottom catchers in the majors, according to Baseball Prospectus.His defense undoubtedly remains a work in progress, but bench coach John Russell is also regarded as a superb catching instructor to continue to oversee Sisco’s development at this level.The timing of this demotion doesn’t seem to make much sense for a club that is 30 games under .500 and going nowhere, but the Orioles are instead expected to summon the 32-year-old Caleb Joseph back to the majors. One could argue that Sisco might benefit from a mental break and a potential confidence boost playing for the Tides, but you won’t find a major league climate with less pressure from a competitive standpoint than Baltimore right now. He also spent his entire 2017 minor-league season with Norfolk, seemingly leaving little for him to prove at that level.What does he need to work on that can’t be done while continuing to play in Baltimore?The Orioles have used a catching carousel all season, going from the tandem of Joseph and Sisco to open the season to Sisco and Andrew Susac to Sisco and Austin Wynns to the current pair of Wynns and Joseph. Sisco’s demotion isn’t the end of the world nor does it mean the Orioles have soured on him to any great degree, but it does appear counterintuitive to what this season should be about the rest of the way.Odds & endsIn an already-lost season from a competitive standpoint, you’re left to look for moments such as hard-throwing rookie Tanner Scott striking out Justin Bour with a nasty slider to leave the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a four-run game on Sunday. Scott is averaging an impressive 12.5 strikeouts compared to 3.1 walks per nine innings this season. … Trey Mancini had been 4-for-50 with runners in scoring position this season before his RBI single in the third inning of Sunday’s win. He batted .340 in that department as a rookie. … Jonathan Schoop drew four walks during the Miami series after registering only seven over his first 47 games. You hope that increased level of patience is a sign of better things to come as the 2017 All-Star second baseman is batting just .212 with a .626 on-base plus slugging percentage. … Brad Brach pitched a scoreless eighth inning, but he issued a walk and is averaging 5.2 free passes per nine innings. He needs to get on a roll and cut down on the walks to improve his trade value. … Sunday marked the first time the Orioles enjoyed a lead of four or more runs since May 24 in Chicago. … The Orioles scored a combined 27 runs on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. They scored a total of just 18 runs in 11 straight home losses between those holidays.last_img read more

Soccer coach comes out to team as transgender: ‘I’m still me’

first_img Related Kristin Soldevilla(PORTLAND, Ore.) — A beloved soccer coach coming out to his team as transgender has been captured on video.Kaig Lightner, 36, founder and director of Portland Community Football Club in Portland, Oregon, revealed his story to the kids on May 1.“I thought it was really fantastic that the first question was, ‘How old are you?” Lightner told ABC News. “Kids don’t have as many concerns about these larger social issues as adults do. They just want to know what age I am.”As for the video, the response had been amazingly positive, he added. “They were like ‘OK you’re our coach, we’re glad you did this now lets go play soccer.’”Lightner was assigned female sex at birth. But, as a child, he recognized that “something was different,” he said.“As I became older, more into my 20’s, is when I really started to think about transitioning,” Lightener added. “I recognized that my identity fit more towards the masculine end of the gender spectrum.”Lightner began taking testosterone at age 26 and in 2005, he legally changed his first name. A year later, he received top surgery, he said.Lightner’s mom, Betty Lightner, from Whidbey Island Washington, told ABC News that she and her family embraced his journey from the very beginning.“We didn’t want him to be alone for one minute,” Betty Lightner said. “Because this whole thing kind of started in high school, that she, at the time, was totally ridiculed and put-off by a lot of people and left out of a lot of things, which pained us.”She said once Lightner began taking testosterone, the family noticed he was happier.“The top surgery, it was hard and we went with him,” Betty Lightner added. “But it was the last step that completed the circle and made him who he is now. He is a gorgeous, intelligent, amazing, loving strong, intelligent man. He’s a great friend, a great person and he is making a difference in the world and there’s nothing more a parent can ask for than that.”In 2013, Lightner launched the Portland Community Football Club, which accepts players and coaches from racially and economically diverse backgrounds. The club is also a welcoming environment for many different identities, including LGBTQ players, parents and coaches.Throughout the years, Lightner said the soccer club became a “family” to him. Earlier this month, he decided it was time to share his past with the kids.“I had just gotten to this place with them that I thought they need to know and deserve to know,” he said. “To have them learn about this from somebody they already love and respect is better than learning from a second source about my identity.”After a group warm-up during practice, Lightner gathered the kids and began his speech.“Some of you may or may not know this, but I am transgender,” Lightner said in his speech, captured in the seven-minute video.“That means that I was born a girl and that I grew up playing this soccer as a girl and that’s not something that I share with players or people in the sports world very often because it’s not an easy thing,” he said. “We have a lot of rules in sports about how boys play and how girls play and that’s not very fair.”“I got told a lot of things about being a soccer player as a girl,” he continued. “I wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t strong enough, or I was too strong, I acted too much like a boy.”“I bet you all had things said to you about your color of your skin, or the way you talk, or the country your parents are from or any of that, that’s really similar to how I got treated as a kid too.”In the video, the players are listening to Lightner’s story and one walks up and gives him a hug.Lightner continued: “I may have this white skin and I may look like I just cruised right through life with a lot of privilege, which I have had, but I have one thing that a lot of people don’t know about me.”Lightner admitted that he was nervous to come out to his players.“We got to love each other no matter what … I’m still me,” he said. “I’m still the same guy who comes out here, gets you guys to be better soccer players, gets on you when you’re not playing hard, loves you no matter what.”Kurt Borchardt is an assistant coach and helps coordinate fundraising for the soccer club. Borchardt met Lightner just after he began transitioning from female to male, he told ABC News.Borchardt said he was “very proud” of the players and of Lightner after viewing the video of his speech.“He’s amazing,” Borchardt said of Lightner. “They know he cares about them. He’s invested in them and he’s an awesome mentor. He’s been a great role model to all of us as his friends in terms of his courage to be who he is, while at the same time, investing in our community.”Betty Lightner said prior to the video, she was unaware that her son had not come out to the soccer club, but is glad that he did.“We realized it was freeing to Kaig,” she added. “Maybe there are some trans kids out there who want to play soccer and are afraid they won’t be accepted. It opens a huge door for trans people who want to be accepted and loved.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more
