Reds’ Aristides Aquino breaks NL rookie mark for HR in month with 14th

The Reds’ Aristides Aquino has broken the National League rookie record for homers in a month with his 14th in August.

Orioles to add netting in Camden Yards within foul poles

The Orioles also will extend protective netting to near the foul poles in 2020 at their spring training facility in Sarasota, Florida.

Pete Alonso made a friendly offer to Kris Bryant in June, one that gave the Cubs star an appreciation for the Mets slugger’s big heart, but even more so for the breakout rookie’s big muscles. During a series between the Mets and Cubs at Wrigley Field, Alonso gave one of his specially made bats to Bryant. The 2016 NL MVP used it for about a week, and even hit a long homer with it. In the end, the 6-foot-5 Bryant didn’t have the might necessary to power Alonso’s weapon of choice.
