Fletcher’s Glove, Bat Impressive in Win Over Giants

“He’s in a great spot,” D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said of his rookie outfielder. “He carried us today with five RBIs. That’s what everyone works for. He’s probably watched a couple of his teammates, Corbin, Alek, and Jake last year getting this opportunity. He’s been dreaming about it for a long time and he’s making the most of every game and every at-bat. That’s what we love about him.”

This day in baseball:

The human’s little finger provides over 50% of the hand’s strength.

Don’t underestimate your little fingers. Researches show that a human’s little finger provides over 50% of the hand’s strength, and losing the little finger is really detrimental.

Wow, I would never have guessed that.

Mammoths were still alive when the Egyptians were building the Great Pyramids.

Wooly mammoths were alive until 2550 to 2490 B.C.

Personally, I knew that, but I just thought some would find it interesting. There is a remote island in the Artic Circle in the extreme far east called Wrangel Island. It is a small island, so the population would have been incredibly inbred.

I will just throw out another fact, we are closer in time to T-Rex (65 million years apart) than T-Rex was to Stegosaurs (82 million).
