Reds announce last night’s FOX Sports telethon raises $177,000 for team’s Community Fund

The annual FOX Sports Ohio telethon on June 17 raised a record $177,000 for the Reds Community Fund.

This is the seventh year in a row FOX Sports Ohio has dedicated a Reds telecast featuring a special hour-long Reds Live pregame show, in-game stories and postgame show to highlight programs and raise funds for the Reds Community Fund.

“FOX Sports Ohio is grateful for the opportunity to support the Reds Community Fund,” stated FOX Sports Ohio Senior Vice President and General Manager Randy Stephens. “Our telecast not only shines a light on the many good works being done by the Reds throughout the Cincinnati community, but also serves as a platform to raise new funds for future projects.”

“In just seven years, the Telethon has grown into one of our most important fundraising and awareness-raising opportunities,” said Reds Community Fund executive director Charley Frank. “Not only has the annual telecast raised more than $750,000, but it has also allowed us to share the stories of some of our remarkable student-athletes, coaches and programs. We are indebted to the entire FOX Sports Ohio team for their efforts and support.”

Throughout the Reds vs. Astros broadcast, FOX Sports Ohio featured many of the baseball and softball-themed programs the Reds Community Fund established and operates, including:

For donations of $100 and $200, fans received MVP gift packages containing exclusive Reds merchandise, complimentary tickets, and more.

A limited number of $1,000 packages were sold that feature a private luncheon with Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman.

While the telethon packages are sold out, fans can continue to support the Reds Community Fund at www.reds.com/community.

Special thanks to broadcasters Thom Brennaman, Chris Welsh, Jeff Piecoro, Brian Giesenschlag and George Grande along with the entire FOX Sports Ohio team for another record-setting telethon.

The 21-year-old Garcia was named the 2019 Pac-12 Conference Pitcher of the Year. He finished with a 10-1 record and 1.44 ERA (15 ER/94.0 IP) over 16 games/13 starts for the Bruins this past season, posting 117 strikeouts against just 26 walks and limiting opponents to a .160 batting average. He allowed two earned runs or less in all 13 of his starts. The junior right-hander was a First-Team All-America selection and was also a semifinalist for both the Golden Spikes Award and Dick Howser Trophy and was on the watchlist for the College Baseball Foundation Pitcher of the Year award.

In his three seasons with the Bruins, the right-handed pitcher finished with a 20-2 record, 2.11 ERA (43 ER/183.0 IP), 206 strikeouts, and a .171 opponent batting average over 54 games/25 starts. He was a three-year varsity baseball letter-winner at La Salle High School in Pasadena, California.

With today’s announcement, the Rangers have now signed 17 of the club’s 41 selections in the 2019 MLB Draft, with Garcia being the highest selected signee.

MLB issues statement on Padres 3B Manny Machado

Major League Baseball issued the following statement today:

“Manny Machado was suspended by MLB Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre, who considered all the facts and circumstances of Machado’s conduct, including precedent, in determining the appropriate level of discipline. Mr. Machado is appealing his suspension and we do not believe it is appropriate for the union representing Major League Umpires to comment on the discipline of players represented by the Players Association, just as it would not be appropriate for the Players Association to comment on disciplinary decisions made with respect to umpires. We also believe it is inappropriate to compare this incident to the extraordinarily serious issue of workplace violence.”

MLB suspends Padres 3B Manny Machado

June 17, 2019

 

San Diego Padres third baseman Manny Machado has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for aggressively arguing and making contact with Umpire Bill Welke following his ejection in the top of the fifth inning of Saturday’s game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Manny Machado

Machado’s suspension had been scheduled to be served tonight, when the Padres are to host the Milwaukee Brewers. However, Machado has elected to file an appeal. Thus, the suspension will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

Oakland A’s issue medical update on catcher Nick Hundley

OAKLAND — The Oakland A’s have released the following medical update on catcher Nick Hundley.

Hundley had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee today with Dr. Jon Dickinson at Presidio Surgical Center in San Francisco. Dr. Dickinson performed a medial meniscectomy procedure on his left knee to clean up a tear within the medial meniscus.

Nick Hundley

Hundley was having symptomatic issues with his knee for the past two months with no limitations to his playing capacity, and the current injury to his lumbar spine gave the club an opportunity to address the knee issue, which would allow him to recover from both injuries simultaneously.

Nick is resting comfortably and will return to the club tomorrow to begin his rehab work on his knee and continue his rehab work on his lumbar spine. There is no timetable to share with either injury at this time until he is back to baseball activities.

Hundley has been on the 10-day injured list with back spasms since June 8 after exiting the first game of that day’s doubleheader in the fourth inning. He is hitting .200 (14-for-70) this season with two home runs and five RBI in 31 games. Hundley, who signed with Oakland as a minor league free agent this offseason, was on the A’s Opening Day roster and has made 23 starts.
