Cincinnati Reds announce 2017 Skyline Chili High School Showcase

Features 84 Baseball And Softball Teams


The sixth annual Skyline Chili Reds Futures High School Showcase presented by Cincinnati Children’s Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics will feature 84 high school baseball and softball teams from Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Southeast Indiana and Dayton playing a total of 47 games from April 1-24, 2017.

Many of the games will be played at the region’s top baseball and softball venues including the P&G Cincinnati MLB Youth Academy in Roselawn, Prasco Park in Mason, Midland Baseball Complex in Batavia and Meinken All-Star Field in Covington.

Ten teams will play games at Great American Ball Park on April 7 & 8 during “Big League Weekend.”

The High School Showcase kicks off Saturday, April 1 with Opening Day at the P&G Cincinnati MLB Youth Academy featuring six baseball games and two softball games.

For 2017, softball matchups have been expanded to five games and for the second straight year two baseball double-headers will be played in Dayton at Wright State University.

Five Northern Kentucky games will be played at the renovated Meinken Field in Covington, which was dedicated during MLB All-Star Week in 2015.

Tickets for the Reds Futures High School Showcase games are $5 and good for all games on that day. Each ticket includes a voucher good for a free View Level ticket to your choice of select 2017 Reds home games at Great American Ball Park and also includes a coupon for one free Skyline Chili Cheese Coney. Advance tickets can be purchased at each of the participating schools. Tickets will also be available on game days at each of the ballparks.

All players and coaches from the 84 teams will be invited to GABP on Sunday, April 23 to participate in a “March at the Majors” parade around the field prior to the Reds vs. Chicago Cubs game at 1:10 p.m. MVPs from each game will be recognized on the field during pregame ceremonies.

NHL scores, game recaps from Wednesday, March 8, 2017: Penguins led to victory by Bonino, Malkin; Senators, Bruins keeping pace in Atlantic Division

Home Team in Caps
Ottawa 5, DALLAS 2
Pittsburgh 7, WINNIPEG 4
BOSTON 6, Detroit 1

Nick Bonino (3-0—3) and Evgeni Malkin (2-1—3) each recorded three points to vault the Penguins (41-16-8, 90 points) back into a tie – in terms of points – with the idle Blue Jackets (42-17-6, 90 points) for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

* Bonino notched his second career hat trick and first since Feb. 2, 2013 vs. LAK (3-1—4 w/ ANA). It also marked Bonino’s fourth career multi-goal performance (391 GP) and first since Nov. 4, 2014 at COL (w/ VAN).

* Malkin (31-39—70), who recorded his sixth three-point game of the season, reached the 30-goal milestone for the fifth time in his 11 NHL campaigns and the first time since scoring a career-high 50 goals in 2011-12.

The Senators (37-22-6, 80 points) and Bruins (35-26-6, 76 points) – who sit in second and third place, respectively – each picked up wins to keep pace in the Atlantic Division race:

Craig Anderson (35 SV) earned his 146th victory in a Senators uniform (282 GP) to tie Patrick Lalime (283 GP) for the most wins by a goaltender in franchise history. Anderson improved to 8-2-0 in his last 10 outings, posting a 1.80 goal-against average, .944 save percentage and one shutout dating to Feb. 11.

Brad Marchand (2-0—2) and David Krejci (2-1—3) each scored twice to lift the Bruins to a 9-3-0 record under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy. Marchand, who reached the 70-point milestone for the first time in his career (32-38—70), paces the NHL with 22 goals and 39 points dating to Jan. 1 (28 GP).

Three players – Penguins teammates Sidney Crosby (34-36—70) and Evgeni Malkin (31-39—70) as well as Bruins forward Brad Marchand (32-38—70) – moved into a share of second place in the Art Ross Trophy race, behind Edmonton’s Connor McDavid (22-52—74). Chicago’s Patrick Kane (29-41—70) also has 70 points in 2016-17.

NFL Free Agency is underway with 517 players available


The National Football League today announced that 517 players are free agents who now can negotiate with all 32 clubs.

Players are either “restricted” or “unrestricted” free agents.  Within the categories are also “franchise” and “transition”

players.  No players were designated as transition players this year.

The time period for free agency signings in 2017:

  • Restricted Free Agents – March 9 to April 21.
  • Unrestricted Free Agents (who have received May 9 tender from prior club) – March 9 to July 22 (or the first scheduled day of the first NFL training camp, whichever is later).
  • Franchise Players – March 9 to November 14, the Tuesday following the 10th week of the regular season.

If a player in this category receives an offer from a new club to sign a player contract for the 2017 season or for 2017 and future seasons, which the player desires to accept, the offer must be set forth in an offer sheet, signed by both the new club and the player, and must be substantially in the form of Appendix B of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement.  The new club then must immediately: hand deliver the offer sheet, or send it by overnight mail, or by electronic mail in .pdf form (in each case a confirmation copy shall also be sent by first class mail) to the prior club, to the attention of the club’s president or general manager. The new club must send copies of the offer sheet to the National Football League Players Association and to the National Football League using the above described delivery procedures.  If the offer sheet is hand delivered, the new club should obtain an acknowledgement of receipt.  In addition, the new club shall notify the league office of the terms of an offer sheet immediately upon delivery to a prior club.

The prior club has a right of first refusal to all players listed above.  Draft choice compensation is as listed in the column on the right.  If the prior club has only a right of first refusal and is therefore not entitled to any compensation, the designation “ROFR” appears in that column.  In order to submit an offer sheet, a new club must have available the required selection choice, defined as its own or better choice in the applicable rounds, in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Offer sheets may be submitted to a prior club until 11:59:59 p.m., New York time, on Friday, April 21.

In order to submit an offer sheet, a new club must have available the required choices, defined as its own or better choices in the first round in the 2017 and 2018 NFL Drafts.  Offer sheets must be submitted to a prior club prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the Tuesday following the 10th regular season weekend.

As Part of Little League World Series, Pirates and Cardinals players to attend Little League games during the day; Little Leaguers and their families to attend Major League game at renovated Bowman Field at night


The Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals will play a special regular season game to celebrate youth baseball during the 2017 Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on Sunday, August 20th, Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) jointly announced today. The game will air nationally on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” and ESPN Radio at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

To start the day, Major Leaguers will attend Little League World Series games as a unified demonstration of their passion and commitment to helping grow the game at the youth level. This day-long baseball celebration culminates later that night, when the Pirates and Cardinals host Little Leaguers and their families at the MLB Little League Classic.

The Little League Baseball® World Series is an international championship tournament for children ages 10-12 held annually in Williamsport, the headquarters for Little League International. Each year, countries from around the world compete on a global stage with games airing on ESPN and streamed via WatchESPN.

MLB and all 30 Clubs have committed $40 million of resources toward the growth and sustainability of the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program. Additionally, MLB supports developmental initiatives aimed at engaging underserved communities, particularly MLB Youth Academies and amateur development camps such as the Dream Series and the Breakthrough Series.
