The One Hitter Mariano Rivera Couldn’t Get Out

Wednesday 17:15 GMT

A total of 993 different hitters recorded at least one at-bat against Rivera during his 19-year major-league career with the New York Yankees.

For that reason and so many more, Rivera will be elected into the Hall of Fame on Tuesday, almost certainly earning one of the highest percentages of the vote in history. As he prepares to receive the sport’s ultimate honor, it seems fitting that he will likely be joined in Cooperstown this summer by his greatest nemesis: Edgar Martínez—the only person ever to conquer the great Rivera.

Media treatment of Covington students ‘way worse’ than Kavanaugh coverage, critic says

Wednesday 17:15 GMT

BUZZFEED WRITER COMPARES COVINGTON STUDENT TO KAVANAUGH: ‘IT'S THE LOOK OF WHITE PATRIARCHY’. The New York Daily News even published an unverified image of possible Covington students in “blackface” from several years ago. “This won’t help Kentucky student Nick Sandmann’s case,” the Daily News wrote.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that this is actually “way worse” than the way Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated.The shocking vitrol directed at the MAGA hat-wearing teens, before video evidence showed they were innocent of instigating the confrontation, has shown a disturbing willingness among some on the left to demonize even children, as long as they are seen as conservative. TUCKER CARLSON: COVINGTON STORY WAS NOT ABOUT RACE BUT ABOUT PEOPLE IN POWER ATTACKING PEOPLE THEY'VE FAILED. “Not only was there a rush to judgment here, the initial story has been unquestionably debunked and yet some in the media and on the left still refuse to apologize for their initial attacks,” Barron said.
