Last August, the Brewers signed the outfielder David dahl and assigned it to Triple-A. The former Rockie had been freed by the Rangers. Dahl was brought back to the Brewers on a minor league contract and issued an invitation to spring training, according to The Athletic’s Will Sammon (via twitter). The invitation was finalized before the transaction freeze went into effect.

Dahl is a bit of a wild card for the Brewers’ outfield photo next season. Brewers lost Avisail Garcia to Marlins and traded Jackie Bradley Jr. at the Red Sox. Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich will look to regain some of the earlier glory after struggling to match their previous heights in 2021. Renfroë Hunter was added to the image in the Bradley case. Tyrone taylor remains on the roster as an additional outfielder, while infielders such as Keston Hiura, Jace Pederson, and Mike Brosseau could see the weather in the corners of the outfield.

Dahl, the tenth overall in the 2012 draft, has seen his career derailed with a series of injuries. However, he is only 27 years old. He didn’t find his way with the Rangers, hitting just 0.210 / 0.247 / 0.322 in 220 home plate appearances. His contributions amounted to a disappointing rWAR of -1.0, which led to his eventual DFA.

Seaman Vincent Beckman of #StatenIsland #NewYork recently graduated from #Navy’s only #BootCamp. We sat down with him to ask him a few questions, so everyone had the chance to meet one of our new sailors!

Q: Why did you join the Navy?

A: I joined the Navy mainly because of my family and because I wanted a new challenge in life. I wanted more financial stability for my family, and the Navy provided educational benefits that I wanted for myself and my family. Being a firefighter has taught me a lot and I’ve seen a lot of challenges throughout my life so far, but felt I had to do more and keep going. By joining the Navy, I felt I could take my family and I on adventures and challenges that some wish they could face, and because of that, I will thank the Navy every day for giving me the chance to do so. ‘have done.

Q: What does it mean to you to be recognized as a Star Sailor?

A: I feel good. I am the oldest of 3 children. My single mom taught us that the little things matter most in life and that nothing just happens for granted. Receiving recognition gives me the assurance that I not only have followed my mother’s teachings, but also shows me that I am on the right track to be successful in my life. I have tried writing things down to express my feelings about how I can now keep moving forward to the next challenge in life, expressing my joy to my wife – that I will come home by showing her to her and our daughter that I ‘I’ll do my best for them. They can wake up each morning and be proud of the man who supports and honors them day in and day out. Knowing now that I have been recognized gives me the idea that there is so much more to overcome and face. Life is truly like the ocean where there are open possibilities that never end. Sometimes there are storms and high waves; as long as you don’t give up and keep swimming you will accomplish all that awaits you and see this shore. It puts me in the spotlight of my followers and family that I can’t afford to spoil or let go.

Q: Who motivated you during training camp and how did they do it?

A: I will definitely say that my RDCs played a big part in my 8 weeks at training camp for many reasons for which I will always be grateful. One day, I hope to sit down and thank them. They understood my situation and allowed me to speak freely about what I wanted from it all. They took the time to teach me and show me how to take the next step / challenge.

Second, I will have to thank my wife and daughter who of course I couldn’t help but think about, which got me through training camp. My wife is my Right Angel. She deserves more than what life and I have given her while I am here as a sailor. She influenced me to become a born again Christian, which has had a huge influence in my life as she has allowed me to understand many situations where we can learn from everyone. I will say that his letters and photos certainly encouraged me to keep going through every difficult moment. My daily promise to her, my daughter and myself is that I will never disappoint my ladies.

The third person I have the chance to mention is my mother. My mom never had the easy task of raising 3 kids with her in New York City, but made sure we had everything we needed. She really made sure that we were up to date with our education, our sports and our morals in life. I try to improve myself every day, thanks to her and the life we ​​have lived. My mother was honorable for her 3 children and I will always do my best to show my appreciation for everything she did.

Q: What was the biggest challenge for you during training camp?

The hardest part of the training was the running. I am active outdoors and in sports, but long distance running was not something I was good at. I was scared for days and nights that my racing problem would cause me to fail my family and the Navy because of my struggle, but I got over it as best I could so that I could add it to my stories. of success in my life. Not only will I be thanking both my RDC leader and my 3rd RDC – they sprinted across the track for me, screaming and pushing me to lean forward and take off when I got to my last curve – but I have to thank my wife and my daughter. I saw them in my head at the finish line, and I thought, “This is graduation and my big reward. “

Beckman plays and supervises football and baseball in his spare time. He became active in the church and operated a DIY and landscaping business before enlisting. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Columbia Southern University at #OrangeBeach #Alabama. He can’t wait to reunite with his wife and daughter after leaving training camp.

Navy, Marines in search of training systems with specific adversaries, ability to track individual performance https://nyrenegades.com/navy-marines-in-search-of-training-systems-with-specific-adversaries-ability-to-track-individual-performance/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 18:03:38 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/navy-marines-in-search-of-training-systems-with-specific-adversaries-ability-to-track-individual-performance/ ORLANDO – As the US Navy and US Marine Corps reorganize to defeat sophisticated adversaries around the world, maritime service chiefs say they need virtual training systems that can go beyond simple “representations and series” and accurately reflect the fight they expect to fight. face off as well as demonstrate just how well prepared Sailors […]]]>

ORLANDO – As the US Navy and US Marine Corps reorganize to defeat sophisticated adversaries around the world, maritime service chiefs say they need virtual training systems that can go beyond simple “representations and series” and accurately reflect the fight they expect to fight. face off as well as demonstrate just how well prepared Sailors and Marines are for this fight.

Marine Corps Commander Gen. David Berger said the service is urgently moving to reshape the force, its operational concepts and training for China’s high-end stimulation threat. But it struggles to fully replicate the behavior of China or other adversaries in its simulators and other training systems, and this is a key area where the industry can help.

“We envision our opponent thinking, operating and fighting the way we do, which is a big mistake,” Berger said Nov. 30 at the annual inter-department / industry training, simulation and education conference. “In other words, modeling and simulation can help integrate how we think the adversary is going to fight, how they are going to operate, which is not necessarily what we would do.”

“We need help to create the software, the simulation, which does not replicate us, it replicates the adversary, whether it is Russia or Iran or the [People’s Republic of China], [People’s Liberation Army], “he continued.” They are all going to work differently, so we need the loyalty to allow us, our practitioners, to see that they don’t think like us. “

Berger noted that the training gold standard works against a thoughtful adversary who responds to decisions made by US military leaders and units undergoing training, rather than using pre-programmed movements. Yet, it is difficult for an American to put aside years or decades of training and fully replicate the behaviors and mindsets of a Chinese or Russian military unit while playing the aggressor in a training scenario, and therefore a software simulation which can be both precise for the adversary as well as a reactivity to the actions undertaken within the framework of the exercise would be the ideal.

Berger added that in order to prepare for a high-end adversary, the services also need training systems that can merge with systems from other services and other foreign armies.

“We assumed we were going to need an asymmetric approach. In other words, we are not going to build muscle, overcome this threat of stimulation; you have to have an asymmetric advantage. And the asymmetric advantage we have is our ability to function as a team, ”he said.

“So how do we take it to the next level? The way we do it, obviously, is to train together. But the obstacles against that are, I think, what this forum has been focusing on in recent years is that each of us has proprietary training systems; now we know we have to operate, train together, but they own it. How to merge them?

In addition to creating these training systems to better prepare the force for success against a peer threat, Berger and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday said the technology also exists to better track individual skills, performance and progress, and they want to use some of this technology to increase performance of individuals and units.

“What we’re really looking for is combat proficiency, of which reps and sets are a component,” Gilday said. “But to understand how, down to the individual level, not only what we’re good at, but what we’re deficient in, then focus on those shortcomings in a way that raises the bar for individuals and then collectively within the ‘team’ should be the ultimate goal of training.

The NOC described something like a baseball card for each sailor, with clear metrics that can show strengths and weaknesses compared to other sailors.

In the explosives and ordnance community, for example, Gilday said sailors train using systems that can measure their physical and mental performance and watch for signs of fatigue. This technology could be applied more widely to better understand individual performance, he said.

In addition, this “baseball card” could include measures on work performance as well as physical and mental performance. He said the Navy had learned a lot in its efforts to achieve an 80% mission capacity rate for its fleet of fighter jets, when the service completely revamped its maintenance practices rather than spending more money on be more ready. Gilday said the Navy assumed all maintainers in their jobs were competent, but some Sailors were assigned to jobs – or lead other Sailors into jobs – that they had not done recently and for which they were not properly trained.

For example, he said, if a sailor hasn’t made an engine change for three years, why does that sailor run the shop that does the engine changes? With a better understanding of each Sailor’s training and past experiences, as well as their demonstrated skills, the Navy is succeeding in properly assigning Sailors to the jobs where they can contribute the most, and Gilday said he wanted to see that expanded. to other communities. .

Berger said the technology exists outside the military to do this – in the fitness world – and the military could easily adapt the technology to track physical fitness, job skills, training history. and more from service members.

Noting that his hotel here had two Peloton bikes in his gym, he remarked, “You can ride that Peloton bike this morning here in Orlando, plug in your profile if you live in Illinois and continue your workout. And all of your training from the last three years on Peloton bikes is here. Why can’t we do this for aircraft maintenance? Why can’t we do this for just any trade?

After being approved for rental by the Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission, renovations began in a historic two-story building near Majestic Park for a new Spa City Youth Academy training facility.

The commission rented the building, located at 201 W. Belding St., to High Impact Movement Inc. – a youth organization that supports teens of Hot Springs and Garland County by providing an environment that promotes personal and social growth. .

Amos Gray, founder and director of High Impact, said the youth academy will use the sport of baseball as a model to teach students skills such as leadership and workforce development.

“We want to use baseball to help students learn these skills that we want them to learn,” he said. “Teamwork, you know, focus, leadership development, workforce development and understanding baseball and breaking it down into: How do you take care of a field? »To the front office. There are a lot of skills in between.

The building, which dates back to 1940, sits directly across from Majestic Park – the same site that Babe Ruth and other major leagues, as well as those of the Negro League, once came to practice baseball in the spring.

“Our goal is to develop ambassadors for the city of Hot Springs,” said Gray. “The young people who, when these teams come – and you’ve seen the list of teams, tournaments to come – these ambassadors will be the ones who will host the teams.

Video not playing? Click here https://www.youtube.com/embed/eEdvQVdr5kQ-YQ

“So they’re going to be the ones heading to the bus saying, ‘Coach, hey, my name is,’ you know, ‘Lateisha Gunn, and I’m going to be your host for the tournament. “You know, and that person will take the team to where they are going to play, take them where they can relax, a concession stand, a bathroom, let them know about the different places to eat in the city,” he said. he declared.

“Young people need a range of different things to acquire the skills that we are trying to teach them. Whether it is study skills, relationship skills, healthy decision making,” he said. he declares. “That’s what it is and I really believe that through the High Impact Movement and the Spa City Youth Academy we can do it.”

Gray said the group’s ultimate goal is to equip and empower students, who can go up to the age of 18. Using this baseball model, he said, can engage kids while giving them a sense of pride and ownership.

“The Negro League is something that, you know, if you teach kids history and expose them to that story and then, you know, show them how great it is, they’re excited about it. “, did he declare. “But amazing things have happened on this property.… And so, to get our kids to understand the wealth that they have in their community, it’s phenomenal. What other students can say, ‘I’ played on the same field that Babe Ruth played on every summer, you know? “

There are about 12 students in the program, currently, with about five younger students looking forward to their turn to get more involved. Gray said several had come last Saturday to do clean-up work outside the property.

“It’s about changing your attitude and perspective and, right now, that’s what our children need,” he said. “They’ve got to have a good attitude and they’ve got to have a perspective that isn’t negative. And so we’re trying to adjust these things. And I’m telling you, last weekend I saw this happen. You know. , you don’t get a lot of kids up at 10 in the morning to come and cut branches and rake a garden that doesn’t belong to them, do you? But they did.

As a place designed to develop community leaders, Gray noted a much larger aspect of the overall program plan.

“One of the things that is close to my heart and the heart of my board of directors is that we want to develop leaders who will be able to go to any community and make a difference,” said he declared. “And so I think our young people are the ones who are willing to do it. And if we can just give them the time and space to make it happen, they will.

“And that’s what I want this place to be. And so whether it’s doing workshops here or training or bringing in coaches and talking to students about, ‘What is it? to be a baseball player? “https: // www. hotsr.com/news/2021/nov/28/watch-training-center-uses-baseball-as-a-model/”What does it take to be a coach ? ”https://www.hotsr.com/news / 2021 / nov / 28 / watch-training-center-uses-baseball-as-a-model /“ What skills do you need? ”https: / /www.hotsr.com/news/2021/nov/ 28 / watch-training-center-uses-baseball-as-a-model / “What academic skills do you need to be a strong player? ‘ This is the trick. And in the summer, our kids, they might never play baseball, but they’ll have the skills, right, to be what they want to be thanks to what they learned at the center ”, Gray said.

The renovation process should be completed before spring. In addition to the partnership with Majestic Park, the group worked with local school districts to recently purchase a bus to pick up students from school and for other activities. Countless other regional programs have also supported the initiative.

“Majestic ballpark, with Derek Phillips (general manager of Majestic Park) and John Muldoon (assistant general manager) – these guys are huge parts of what we’re trying to do,” he said. “But I think, overall, man, the resources that we’ve been able to acquire from community foundations and all of that has really helped us move a lot forward. And so, Hot Springs has a rich history, of my own. understanding, making sure that organizations that do what they say they want to do – they do it for them. “

It’s very exciting for him, Gray said.

“We must continue to find ways to equip and empower our young people,” he said. “You know, from the most disadvantaged to the very, you know, the rich. Young people are young people and if we can just give them opportunities to experience things in a different way, I really believe that we can really develop leaders, a community of ambassadors, community developers, you know, politicians, anything, and we can just show them that they can do it.

“They will. They will and they will,” Gray said.

The 2021 season has started with high hopes in Los Angeles. The Dodgers’ starting rotation was ranked first in the league and fans were eager to see the new acquisitions and rising stars in action. But everything changed in May.

When Dustin May suffered an elbow injury early in the season, many were hoping it wouldn’t be too bad considering the way the right-hander takes care of him. Sadly, that wasn’t the case and the hard-throw right-hander had to undergo Tommy John-style surgery and was lost for the season.

Overland Park gym training athletes of all levels https://nyrenegades.com/overland-park-gym-training-athletes-of-all-levels/ Wed, 24 Nov 2021 23:55:09 +0000 https://nyrenegades.com/overland-park-gym-training-athletes-of-all-levels/ OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – He played baseball growing up and in high school, but when he went to college at Missouri State University, Nate Hemphill decided it was time to focus on his studies.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – He played baseball growing up and in high school, but when he went to college at Missouri State University, Nate Hemphill decided it was time to focus on his studies. He wanted to be a Division I baseball coach.

“It was the dream,” he said. “And of course, the major league level was the biggest and the highest dream.”

He tried his hand at training at two schools on the west coast, but didn’t feel a connection. So he returned to the Midwest, first to Springfield, Missouri, then to Overland Park, Kansas.

It was there that he opened PSP3, a sports hall specializing in the training of young athletes, from college to college. And in the case of some returning clients, in their professional careers.

That includes Connor Kaiser, who played baseball at Blue Valley West High School, and three years at Vanderbilt, before being drafted as an infielder by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“Play in the big leagues, win a World Series. That’s the goal, ”said Kaiser, now at home in the offseason and training again at PSP3.

Also in training with Hemphill and his staff: Jon Coots. The Belton native lifted weights with the high school football team, but couldn’t play with them on the grill. He is paralyzed from the waist down.

“I have a disability, but I have different abilities,” said the 21-year-old. “This is how I see it.”

In high school, Coots competed in powerlifting against able-bodied athletes – and won. He even won bronze in para-weightlifting at Kazykstahn two years ago.

“It gave me a thrill. It’s always like that. But there’s that thrill you don’t want to lose, ”he said.

So he now trains with Hemphill, alongside able-bodied athletes like Kaiser, in hopes of qualifying for the 2024 Paralympic Games.

“Honestly, it’s not something I would have thought I would get involved in, but their stories, the amount of motivation, drive and strength of these athletes are incredible,” said Hemphill.

In fact, Hemphill now trains para-athletes in person, and some virtually, from Hoxie, Kansas to St. Louis, Missouri. He had to adapt his techniques and learn new approaches but loves challenges.

And the same goes for able-bodied athletes, who watch in amazement as they train alongside coots.

“You stop and put your things down and look around for a bit,” said Mason Green, a former University of Central Missouri pitcher now in the Colorado Rockies’ minor league system. “It’s fun, it’s awesome, it’s inspiring.”

Kaiser agrees: “It definitely helps me when I see him here. I’m like ‘OK, I shouldn’t be complaining about anything. He’s not looking for excuses. He takes it out on that.

And that motivates Coots even more. Limits, yes. But not in his desire to compete and succeed. And to be just one of the guys:

“I have a disability, but every day I get around it,” Coots said. “I adapt and I make things happen. “

His coaches and fellow PSP3 athletes totally agree.

Labor negotiations between the owners of Major League Baseball’s 30 teams and the league’s players’ association are progressing slowly, and the league is heading towards a lockout which, if not resolved quickly, is could have an impact on the next spring training season.

The MLB collective agreement is set to expire on December 1 and if a deal is not reached by then, league commissioner Rob Manfred has said he will institute a lockout.

It’s unclear how long the lockdown could last. Manfred reportedly said he hoped a lockout would prevent players from striking and losing games as they were during the 1994 season. Sports Illustrated said a deal is expected to be reached in February. Still, players and owners appear to be a long way from agreeing on a contract.

Since the strike that ended in April 1995, MLB has not experienced a work stoppage. But if negotiations continue to move slowly, it could have an impact on this upcoming Cactus League spring training season.

“It would be devastating if there was a work stoppage that affected spring training. It would be devastating for everyone, ”Bridget Binsbacher, executive director of the Cactus League, told the Business Journal. “After two years of spring training disrupted by Covid, our stakeholders are anticipating a strong spring training season 2022.”
