Cincinnati Reds star relief pitcher Aroldis Chapman was arrested for allegedly driving at a speed of 93 mph early Monday morning, according to reports on Columbus area TV and Radio stations.

Chapman was stopped on northbound Interstate 71 near I-270 in Grove City, Ohio, a Columbus suburb, at 12:42 a.m. Eastern Time. The arrest report stated that police arrested the 24-year-old, who was driving his Mercedes, when an officer discovered he had a suspended state of Kentucky driver’s license. He was cited for speeding and driving under suspension.

Chapman was released after posting bond and will have to appear for a June 6 court date.

The talented lefty did not pitch in last night’s 4-1 Reds win over the Atlanta Braves at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

MLB Legends hold on to beat Tim Wisecup’s team, 12-11 in Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Game

 

Outfield wall has the look of corn for the Field of Dreams effect

The inaugural Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams Game took place Saturday night in Columbus, Ohio’s Huntington Park, home of the International League’s Clippers.

The MLB Legends won 12-11 over The Wisecup Team.

Highlights of the game included leadoff batter Rickey Henderson gettingĀ  a single on the game’s fourth pitch. Eventhough, stealing wasn’t allowed, the MLB’s all-time basestealer stole second and third before Frank Thomas, living up to his nickname, put the “Big Hurt” on a pitch and hit a towering homer to left-center.

The goal of the MLB Legends was to entertain, allow Tim Wisecup’s team to enjoy themselves and not get hurt.

Pepsi MAX and Major League Baseball initiated the “dream baseball experience” on the contest winner’s home town field. It pits former pro baseball players against non-professional local baseball players.

In 2011, all baseball fans across the country voted to decide which of four regional finalists would have the opportunity to take the field with the best from MLB.

Tim Wisecup, from the Columbus suburb of Hilliard, Ohio won the votes of baseball fans throughout the country and was chosen as the winner of the Pepsi MAX Field of Dreams contest.
