Huskies in the Playoffs: George Springer, the new “Mr. October”

With the elimination of the Colorado Rockies by the Milwaukee Brewers, UConn is down to two alumni in the MLB Playoffs. Houston Astros outfielder George Springer and Boston Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes are still in it and they are facing off in the ALCS this postseason.

Yuli Gurriel's suspension an act to learn from

Yuli Gurriel's suspension an act to learn from

I am not advocating for Gurriel to give up his culture or beliefs or anything of the sort. A matter of fact the diversity of America is one of the things that makes it the greatest country to ever exist. But it should just be crystal clear to everyone that comes to America that “old habits die hard.” Our country has clearly had issues with racism but every single day is a step in the right direction to eradicate racism from our country. Every incident like this one should be met with strong condemnation and I applaud MLB for doing so.
