right leg of Ryan as he dove into second on a failed stea Antworten

NEW YORK -- That baseball hazing ritual of dressing rookies as Wonder Woman, Hooters Girls and?Dallas Cowboys?cheerleaders is now banned.Major League Baseball created an Anti-Hazing and Anti-Bullying Policy that covers the practice. As part of the sports new labor deal, set to be ratified by both sides Tuesday, the players association agreed to not contest it.The policy, obtained by The Associated Press, prohibits teams from requiring, coercing or encouraging players to engage in activities that include dressing up as women or wearing costumes that may be offensive to individuals based on their race, sex, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or other characteristic.MLB vice president Paul Mifsud said Monday that the new rules resulted partly in light of social media, which in our view sort of unfortunately publicized a lot of the dressing up of the players ... those kind of things which in our view were insensitive and potentially offensive to a number of groups.Theres lots of pictures of baseball players dressed up as Disney princesses, he said.Or even more outlandish things, often for late-season plane trips:?Bryce Harper as a member of the U.S. Olympic womens gymnastics team,?Mike Trout as Lady Gaga,?Manny Machado in a ballet tutu and?Carlos Correa as Wonder Woman. Those are all out starting next season.Although it hasnt happened, you could sort of see how like someone might even dress up in blackface and say, Oh no, we were just dressing up, Mifsud said. Weve also understood that a number of players have complained about it.Exactly when the annual dress-up day began around the majors isnt clear. Players often consider it a form of bonding, and it has become more and more of a production in recent years.Chase Headley and San Diego Padres newcomers wore the skimpy, shiny orange shorts and tight white tops of Hooters servers for a September 2008 flight from Denver to Washington.Times have changed. There is certain conduct that we have to be conscious of, MLB Players Association general counsel Dave Prouty said. The important thing for us was to recognize there was a policy but to preserve the players rights to challenge the level of discipline and the imposition of discipline.Not all outfits are banned; superheroes such as Batman and Spider-Man are OK. Other past costumes that would be allowed include San Francisco ace Madison Bumgarner as a giant ketchup bottle, Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton on the U.S. Olympic mens water polo team and?Los Angeles Dodgers?outfielder Yasiel Puig as Gumby.The issue of locker room bullying erupted a few years ago, when an NFL investigation found that?Richie Incognito and two other Miami Dolphins engaged in persistent harassment toward teammate Jonathan Martin.MLB looked at several college anti-hazing policies while developing these new rules, and they are already being criticized by some current and former players.Seriously?! former Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis wrote on Twitter. Had to wear a Hooters outfit going through customs in Toronto and wore it proudly [because] I was in the Show.Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling tweeted a photo of himself and teammates sporting cheerleading uniforms and said he was honored to be one of the last players ever to be dressed up as a woman.Last September, the New York Mets posted photos and video of players going to Starbucks in Philadelphia wearing uniforms from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, as portrayed in the 1992 movie A League of Their Own. Several other teams engaged in similar behavior.In 2012, Harper and?Washington Nationals?newcomers wore red leotards in the style of Gabby Douglas and the U.S. womens gymnastics team for a train ride to New York. Veteran Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez tweeted a photo.In 2007, the?Yankees theme was The Wizard of Oz. Ian Kennedy wore Dorothys ruby red slippers for a flight from New York to Tampa, Florida.Id rather be here dressing up than anywhere else, Kennedy said at the time. It makes you feel like one of the guys.The new policy states a players actual or perceived willingness to participate in prohibited conduct does not excuse the activity from being considered a violation of the policy.Not everyone saw these things as fun. After he was traded to the Mets in 1992, Jeff Kent threw his pimp costume to the floor in the visitors clubhouse in Montreal and demanded that his regular clothes -- which contained the ID he needed to go through customs -- be returned.I paid my rookie dues in Toronto, he said then. I feel I have endured my embarrassments, my punishment. I felt I was being taken advantage of. They wanted to go overboard. I stuck up for myself. I wont be pushed around.Some common rookie rituals are permitted. Last year, the St. Louis Cardinals?and Dodgers made their newcomers walk across the street from Wrigley Field -- in their full uniforms -- to bring back coffee before their games against the?Chicago Cubs.Rookie relievers still might find themselves lugging snacks across the diamond to the bullpen for the veterans. But requiring players to consume alcoholic beverages or any other kind of drug, or requiring the ingestion of an undesirable or unwanted substance (food, drink, concoction) is banned under the new collective bargaining agreement.The policy is in addition to the workplace code of conduct adopted by MLB and the union in 2013, after the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman asked to meet with baseball officials and inquired what rules the sport had in place against bullying with respect to sexual orientation.The purpose of this policy is not to prohibit all traditions regarding rookies or players, the new policy states, but rather to prohibit conduct that may cause players physical anguish or harm, may be offensive to some players, club staff or fans, or are distracting to the operation of the club or MLB. cheap jerseys usa .

LUCIE, Fla.CLEVELAND -- Jason Kipnis had made a habit of hitting first-inning home runs this season. On Friday night, he tried something different. Kipnis hit a three-run homer with two outs in the 10th inning off Lucas Luetge to lead the Cleveland Indians to a 6-3 win over the Seattle Mariners. The home run was the seventh of the season for Kipnis. The first five came in the first inning before he homered in the eighth in Wednesdays win over Philadelphia. His walkoff shot Friday came on an 0-1 pitch and capped a two-out rally that began with a walk and an infield hit. "This was outstanding," said Kipnis, who was mobbed by his teammates at home plate. "This was one of the more fun nights Ive had on a baseball field." The Indians have won 15 of 19 and are 10-2 at Progressive Field since April 30. Vinnie Pestano (1-0), activated from the disabled list before the game, worked around a one-out walk in the 10th. The game drew a crowd of 34,282, a total boosted by a postgame fireworks show and a $1 hot dog promotion. The Indians are last in the majors in attendance despite being 18-7 since April 20. The biggest crowd of the season since the home opener was not lost on Clevelands players. "That was awesome," Kipnis said. "I was just as amped up as they were rounding first base. You never want to put too much emphasis on different wins, but we knew we had a big crowd. To get a win in front of them and to get it like this in front of them, hopefully it brings some of them back, because we had a lot of fun tonight." The Indians posted their third walk-off win of the season and are 4-0 in extra innings. "There were no words coming out when I was rounding (the bases) and screaming," Kipnis said. "It was just sounds, just gibberish screams." Added Indians manager Terry Francona: "Watching the guys jumping all over each other is fun." Drew Stubbs, who homered in the fifth, drew a walk off Luetge (0-1). Stubbs broke for second with a 1-2 count on Michael Bourn, and Luetge threw to first baseman Justin Smoak, but Stubbs beat the throw to shortstop Brendan Ryan. Bourn hit a slow roller past the mound and second baseman Dustin Ackleys throw to first was late. "That was the matchup we wanted, lefty-on-lefty there, but he (Luetge) just spun one up there and they took advantage of it," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "Speed got us there in the 10th. The kid (Stubbs) did a heck of a job getting to second base, and Bourn is just so fast." The Mariners fell short of reaching the .500 mark for the first time since they were 4-4 on April 8. Raul Ibanezs two-run homer in the sixth tied the game, and the bullpens on both sides took over. Chris Perez retired the side in order in the ninth. Perez, who has been nursing a stiff shoulder, waas pitching for the first time since May 11.dddddddddddd Pestano had been on the DL since May 1 with a sore right elbow. Mariners relievers Charlie Furbush and Carter Capps combined to pitch 3 1-3 scoreless innings. Capps struck out Mark Reynolds to start the 10th. Luetge got Michael Brantley to ground out before running into trouble. Seattle lost for just the seventh time in 19 games. Ubaldo Jimenez allowed two runs and struck out a season-high nine in five innings. He was pulled after Smoak led off the sixth with a single. Rich Hill was brought in to face Ibanez, who homered to right on an 0-1 pitch to tie the game. Jimenez, who had won three consecutive starts, struck out five of the first seven batters he faced. Seattle rookie Brandon Maurer allowed three runs in six innings. The right-hander matched a career high with six strikeouts. Jason Giambis sacrifice fly gave Cleveland the lead in the second. Maurers wild pitch allowed another run to score. Kendry Morales solo homer into the second deck in right field cut the lead to 2-1 in the fourth. Stubbs homered in the fifth to give Cleveland a two-run lead. Nick Swisher drew a leadoff walk in the second and took third on a double by Carlos Santana. Swisher scored on Giambis fly ball to right, which also moved Santana to third. Santana scored when Maurer bounced a pitch in front of the plate with Brantley batting. Morales, who flirted with an extra-base hit down the right-field line before lining out to Jimenez in the first, homered on a 2-0 pitch with one out in the fourth. Stubbs drive to right with one out in the fifth landed in Seattles bullpen, barely clearing the wall. Kipnis and Ryan were came up hobbled in the third. Kipnis banged his head into the right leg of Ryan as he dove into second on a failed steal attempt. Ryan applied the tag, but both players were down for a couple of moments after the play as the two managers and trainers ran on the field. Kipnis and Ryan remained in the game. Mariners outfielder Michael Morse was a late scratch with an irritated eye. Endy Chavez took his spot in right field and batted eighth.
