Twins-day Links: Fancy Patches for Fake Anniversaries

Manny Machado’s new gloves, impatient Twins fans, and fixing free agency

  • It’s been 150 years since the first professional baseball team was formed, and even though that actually has very little to do with today’s MLB, all of the teams will be wearing fancy patches for the occasion this season. If you’re a history nerd, Craig Calcaterra wrote an excellent summary of what 1869 means to professional baseball (spoiler: not a whole lot.)
