LA’s Clayton Kershaw becomes the first 20-game winner of the season when the team routs Chicago at a windy Wrigley Field, 14-5. The 26-year-old southpaw, who has compiled a 20-3 (.870) record along with an ERA of 1.80. is the first Dodger to reach the 20-win plateau twice since Claude Osteen accomplished the feat in 1969 and 1972.

There is an angry shouty guy at the game who really hates the umpire’s calls but you can tell this is a farm league game because Mad Shouty is sitting in front of a pair of guys with a toddler, and instead of yelling FUCK really loudly, he just screams GOOD NIGHT like it’s the most profane phrase ever invented.

Hailey Dawson’s favorite thing to do is throw out the first pitch at a baseball game, and thanks to a majority of all the MLB teams, she’s going to be doing quite a bit of that in the future.

The first pitch seven-year-old Hailey threw out was at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas Rebels game. The UNLV engineering department had made it possible.

At the request of Hailey’s mother, Yong, a group of researchers and students took on the challenge to create a 3D printed prosthetic hand for Hailey. As a result of being born with Poland syndrome, which leaves a pectoral muscle and other parts of the affected side underdeveloped, Hailey was born with a right palm, but not all of her fingers on that hand. The prosthetic hand the university created allows her to grasp objects, like a baseball.
