FORT MYERS, Fla. – Umpires are not perfect. They are not robots. However, this Summer they are being replaced by robots at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers.  “We’re kind of the guinea pigs for this,” said Mighty Mussels manager Brian Meyer.  For two-thirds of all Mussels games this season balls and strikes will be called at the plate …

Wade Miley pitched baseball’s second no-hitter in three days — and fourth already this season — leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 win Friday night over the Cleveland Indians, who were no-hit for the second time in a month.

ANAHEIM — White Sox center fielder Luis Robert made an amusing, yet painful and ultimately costly gaffe in the third inning of Saturday’s game against the Angels, as he attempted to catch a shallow fly ball off the bat of Anthony Rendon, only for it to bounce off his head for a run-scoring error.

Major League Baseball is moving the 2021 All-Star Game and 2021 draft out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s controversial new voting law, the league announced Friday.  “I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said …

The 2021 Major League Baseball season is underway as Opening Day kicked off Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a full slate of goodness with the Orioles-Red Sox game being rained out and the primetime Mets-Nationals tilt getting canceled due to the COVID-19 issues among Washington players.  The latter issue left us without a game that …
