Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sanó has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his aggressive actions in the bottom of the fifth inning of Saturday’s game against the Detroit Tigers at Target Field, which caused benches to clear. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

In addition, Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd has received an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch at Sanó.

Sanó’s suspension had been scheduled to be served tonight, when the Twins are to visit the Texas Rangers. However, he has elected to appeal. Thus, the discipline issued to Sanó will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

MLB, Miami Marlins donate money through All-Star Legacy initiative

Funding will support national charities, local improvement projects in greater Miami and beyond

Press Release | April 24th, 2017

Major League Baseball and the Miami Marlins today announced the contribution of more than $5 million toward the 2017 All-Star Legacy initiative to fund community improvement projects designed to leave a lasting impact throughout Greater Miami and beyond and support national charitable organizations.

This is the 20th anniversary of the All-Star Legacy program, which started in 1997 in connection to the Midsummer Classic in Cleveland. This year’s All-Star Legacy effort features the development of youth baseball and softball playing fields, Boys & Girls Club teen centers, an airport military hospitality lounge and a mobile eye unit. The various All-Star Legacy projects will be unveiled leading up to the 88th MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard.

More Than $5 Million to Local Projects and National Charities

MLB Charities, the Miami Marlins and the Marlins Foundation (a donor-advised fund of The Miami Foundation) plan to donate approximately $5 million, a significant portion of which will go toward the All-Star Legacy initiative. The donation also will support national charitable partners of Major League Baseball, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the Jackie Robinson Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer, among others. The funds will be raised from Gatorade All-Star Workout Day on Monday, July 10th. Since 1997, MLB and host All-Star Clubs have donated approximately $80 million through the All-Star Legacy initiative.

2017 All-Star Legacy Projects

· José Martí Park (Miami, FL) — This project will include a complete renovation and rededication of the field at José Martí Park. Renovations will include regrading the field to eliminate low spots, replacing the outfield grass with field turf, adding new high-efficiency sports lighting, and a drainage system to help facilitate weather-related delays. Additionally, all fencing and the backstop will be repaired with new vinyl coated fencing. Other improvements will include extending the dugout at both sides with roofs and new benches, installing bleachers with shade canopies, and the installation of an art component on the adjacent gymnasium building’s façade. The renovations could potentially result in an additional 1,000-3,000 youth players participating in baseball and softball programming at José Martí Park.

· Charles Hadley Park (Miami, FL) — Upgrades to Charles Hadley Park will consist of a complete renovation of a baseball field, including replacing all fencing and the backstop with new vinyl coated fencing, installing new dugouts and re-grading the outfield turf. Additional improvements will include reconditioning the infield clay as well as the fabric along the first and third base lines. The project also will install concrete pads for the players’ protection as well as shade canopies for the bleacher areas.

· Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Mobile Eye Unit (Miami, FL) — Legacy funding will go toward a new mobile optometric unit, replacing an outdated, 14-year-old vehicle that has been in constant need of repair. The new unit will allow the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired to expand their much needed services of free eye examinations and glasses for eligible school children.

· Military Hospitality Lounge at Miami International Airport (Miami, FL) — Renovations will be made to the Military Hospitality Lounge at Miami International Airport, which provides hospitality services for active and former members of the Armed Forces and their families who are traveling. Plans for the lounge, which was in need of several aesthetic and functional upgrades/repairs, include a more efficiently-designed space as well as new furniture, appliances, flooring, signage and utility work.

· Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade (Kendall Club, Miami, FL) — This project would encompass the renovation and expansion of the existing Teen Center at the Kendall Club of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade to include the following: removing the existing flooring, lighting, lay-in ceiling and HVAC equipment in the current study lounge/game room and entry area, removing the wall and door inside the entry area. Additional space renovations include installation of the new HVAC system, flooring and lighting as well as recoating the roofing on the exterior, upgrading furniture, enabling telephone/cable and Wi-Fi service, cosmetic upgrades (interior and exterior painting), and creating an outdoor space adjacent to the Teen Center with an art component. The renovation and expansion is expected to increase the number of children served daily from 20 to as many as 100 teens per day, a potential 400% increase.

· Boys & Girls Club of Broward County (Leo Goodwin Teen Center, North Lauderdale, FL) — This project will involve renovations to the Leo Goodwin Teen Center facility of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. The scope of the project includes improvements to the computer lab, including new computer desks, tables, lab chairs, headphones as well as new gaming design software. Additional upgrades include those to the “college corner,” the club’s recording studio, and the game room and lounge areas, which will receive a new television and improved sound system, respectively. The lounge area also will receive a throw rug, lounge-style tables and chairs, wall shelving, wall décor and new curtains. Generally, the club will receive new gym doors, updated painting and new baseboards.

The full scope of All-Star Week community and youth programs and events, including non-All-Star Legacy projects and other initiatives, will be announced at a later date.

NHRA Saturday Qualifying from Saturday’s Springnationals in Greater Houston area

C. FORCE, MILLICAN AND COUGHLIN JR. EARN NO. 1 QUALIFYING POSITIONS SATURDAY AT NHRA SPRINGNATIONALS

 

BAYTOWN, Texas – Courtney Force secured the Funny Car No. 1 qualifier Saturday at the 30th annual NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway.

 

Clay Millican (Top Fuel) and Jeg Coughlin Jr. (Pro Stock) were also No. 1 qualifiers in their respective categories at the fifth event of 24 on the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.

 

Defending race winner, Force, set both ends of the track record with a pass of 3.851-seconds at 330.23 mph in her Advance Auto Parts Chevy Camaro during Friday’s qualifying to earn her 12th career No. 1 qualifier.

 

“It definitely feels good to come back to a track that we were able to win at last year,” Force said. “I feel like we’ve got a more consistent race car which was a goal coming off of Las Vegas testing. I feel like we’re heading in the right direction.”

 

In the first round of eliminations Force, who will be in pursuit of her first victory this season, will face Jeff Diehl. Ron Capps is qualified second with a 3.884 at 326.56 in his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger R/T and will race Todd Simpson and John Force and his PEAK Chevy Camaro are in third and will line up against Del Worsham.

 

Millican piloted his Parts Plus / Great Clips dragster to the fifth No. 1 qualifier of his career with a track elapsed time record of 3.722 at 328.22. He will face Steve Chrisman in the first round.

 

“It is really cool for me to qualify No. 1 by a thousandth,” Millican stated. “Since we did qualify No. 1, my plan is to go out there and stomp on that loud pedal four times and turn on that win light four times. These races are getting harder and harder, but we have a good car.”

 

Defending world champion, Antron Brown, is qualified second with a 3.723 pass at 322.50 in the Matco Tools dragster and will face Terry Haddock. Doug Kalitta is in the third qualifying position.

 

In Pro Stock, Coughlin Jr.’s 6.557 pass at 210.70 in his JEGS.com / Elite Performance Chevy Camaro held up from Friday to clench his first No.1 qualifying position since 2014. He won his first race here in the fall of 1997 after only two starts in Pro Stock.

 

“Car feels great and the track is really holding up nicely,” Coughlin Jr. said. “This is the site where I started my Pro Stock career 20 years ago. To get my first professional win here was extremely special. This was like the Disney Land of race tracks for Pro Stock as I was coming into the class.”

 

Bo Butner is second with a 6.560 at 210.80 in his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevy Camaro and will line up against Alan Prusiensky in the first round of eliminations. Veteran Greg Anderson and his Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro are qualified third and race Richie Stevens, husband of two-time world champion Erica Enders, in round one.
