PLAY BALL

MLB and partners will host hundreds of PLAY BALL events throughout the United States & Puerto Rico and around the world, including Brazil, Canada (Montreal), Mexico (Monterrey), and the United Kingdom (London). The PLAY BALL initiative is baseball’s collective effort to encourage young people and communities to engage in baseball- or softball-related activities, including formal leagues, special events and casual forms of play. PLAY BALL events have become MLB’s signature youth engagement activity during the professional and amateur baseball and softball calendar, especially on key dates throughout MLB’s Championship Season. PLAY BALL events demonstrate the positive way the game can serve as an outlet for physical activity, fun with friends, and learning how to play the sport at its most basic levels. PLAY BALL also serves as the League’s youth umbrella in which all associated programs and events derive from the initiative’s consistent, simple message: However You Play Ball, PLAY BALL!

The complementary program of the ‘PLAY BALL’ initiative was created to provide professional baseball Clubs with a platform to engage youth and celebrate baseball & softball participation in communities throughout the country and in Canada. MLB and MiLB Clubs have selected dates this season to activate their efforts in their respective ballparks and communities. In support of PLAY BALL WEEKEND, MLB Clubs will host customized and unique activities to engage young people, highlight the fun of youth baseball and softball, and bring the professional levels of the game closer to kids

For the second consecutive year, baseball and softball combined to rank as the most participated team sports in the United States (25.1 million participants), according to the most recent, annual Topline Participation Report produced by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA). In 2017, casual participation in baseball rose by 12.9% with overall participation seeing a 6.0% increase. Over the last three years, baseball has seen a 49.1% growth in casual participation, which is in direct correlation to the launch of the PLAY BALL initiative.

PlayBall.org is the PLAY BALL initiative’s online home and is accessible via MLB.com, USABaseball.com, USASoftball.com and other partner websites. PlayBall.org also links to USABaseball.com, which provides players, parents and coaches with the information and resources to help with proper play and instruction, including education videos featuring Hall of Famer and MLB Network analyst John Smoltz, Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, and Kansas City Royals Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Dayton Moore, among others. Health and safety information, including through the Pitch Smart program, also is available. PLAY BALL is generously supported by Chevrolet, Scotts and Kingsford.

Diversity-Focused Development Camps

In connection to Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 21), MLB and USA Baseball hosted the annual DREAM Series as the first installment of a series of diversity-focused, amateur development camps that will be held in 2019. These special amateur camps focus on developing and diversifying the future talent pool in baseball. Some of the most talented high school baseball and softball players from around the country participate in these events and receive elite-level instruction as well as the opportunity to be mentored by former Major League players & managers, former professional & Olympic medal-winning softball players, and members of the Women’s National Baseball Team. In addition to the on-field action, participants will receive daily presentations that focus on preparing prospects for the collegiate and professional recruiting processes and offer information about alternative careers within the baseball & softball industry. In each of these camps, a contingent of college recruiters and professional scouts attend to evaluate players who may not have had the opportunity to showcase their skills through other events.

Approximately 250 baseball players (boys, ages 13-18) from across the United States will receive elite-level training from former Major League players and coaches at Historic Dodgertown. As a new element of the event in 2019, the top 44 players from the Hank Aaron Invitational will be invited to play in a special showcase game at SunTrust Park, the home of the Atlanta Braves, as part of an extensive “Hank Aaron Week” hosted by the Braves.

The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to terms on a contract extension with Manager Torey Lovullo.

“Torey’s leadership and ability to connect with people, specifically our players and coaches, provides the foundation for the culture we continue to cultivate and grow in Arizona.” said D-backs Executive Vice President & General Manager Mike Hazen. “This is an exciting day for Torey, his family and the D-backs. We can’t wait to get started at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in two weeks.”

Lovullo, 53, enters his third season at the helm of the D-backs. The 2017 BBWAA NL Manager of the Year has had back-to-back winning seasons and posted a .540 winning percentage (175-149). The club advanced to the postseason in 2017, his first as manager, clinching a Wild Card spot with a second-place finish in the NL West with a 93-69 record. The D-backs defeated the Rockies in the Wild Card Game but were eliminated by the Dodgers in the Division Series.

Lovullo, who was named the D-backs’ eighth manager on November 4, 2016, was the fastest manager in club history to reach 100 wins, doing so in his 171st game. His 93 wins in in 2017 were the most by an Arizona manager in his first 162 games, 1 more than Bob Brenly’s 92 in 2001, and the 24-win differential from 2016 to 2017 was the fourth-largest increase in franchise history.

Jake Barrett designated for assignment

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to terms with RHP Greg Holland on a 1-year contract. To make room for Holland on the roster, the D-backs designated RHP Jake Barrett for assignment. The D-backs’ 40-man roster remains at 40.

Holland, 33, is 1 of 3 pitchers with at least 3 40+ save seasons since 2013, joining Kenley Jansen (3) and Craig Kimbrel (3), and ranks fifth in the Majors during that span with 169 saves, trailing only Kimbrel (244), Jansen (234), Aroldis Chapman (197) and Fernando Rodney (190).

The 3-time All-Star (2013-14, ’17) also ranks in the Top 20 of all relievers since 2013 in save percentage (5th, 90.9), opponent OPS (15th, .583), strikeouts per 9.0 innings (16th, 11.64), fewest home runs allowed per 9.0 innings (16th, 0.55), opponent average (18th, .199) and hits per 9.0 innings (19th, 6.45).

In 2018, Holland posted a 0.84 ERA (2 ER in 21.1 IP) in 24 games after signing as a free agent with Washington on August 7, and combined to go 2-2 with 3 saves, a 4.66 ERA (24 ER in 46.1 IP) and 47 strikeouts in 56 appearances with the Cardinals and Nationals. He was designated for assignment by St. Louis on July 27 and released on August 1.

The Atlanta Braves agreed to terms with OF Nick Markakis on a one-year contract for the 2019 season worth $4 million on Tuesday. The deal also includes a club option for 2020 worth $6 million. The Braves’ 40-man roster is now full.

Markakis, 35, joined OF Dale Murphy (1982-1985) and OF Andruw Jones (2005) as the only players in franchise history to earn a Gold Glove award and a Silver Slugger award in the same year, winning both honors last season after going to his first All-Star Game and hitting .297 with 14 home runs, 43 doubles, 93 RBI and a .806 OPS in 162 games. The right fielder was one of two players in the majors to start all 162 games in 2018, and just the fifth Braves player since the National League went to a 162-game schedule in 1962 to accomplish the feat. Markakis’ 43 doubles ranked as third most in the National League, and he became the first Braves player in franchise history (since 1876) to collect at least 35 doubles in four straight seasons.

Markakis became a free agent following the conclusion of last season, finishing a four-year contract he signed with Atlanta on December 5, 2014. He hit .284 (690-for-2,427) over the length of the deal, with 38 home runs and a .759 OPS in 636 games. His 636 games played since 2015 rank second in the majors, one off the lead of Manny Machado, while Markakis’ 690 hits are ninth.

Originally drafted seventh overall by Baltimore in 2003, Markakis made his major league debut with the Orioles in 2006. He spent nine seasons with Baltimore, earning two Gold Glove awards and hitting .290 (1,547-for-5,331) in 1,365 games. For his career, Markakis has hit .288 (2,237-for-7,758) with 474 doubles, 179 home runs and a .782 OPS in 2,001 games.
