Matt Ehalt NorthJersey Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Aug 2, 2018 Whenever Todd Frazier wants to win an argument with one of the pitchers in his New York Mets clubhouse, the veteran third baseman likes to tap into his past. To be exact, he has no problem bringing up and boasting of his accolades as a 12-year-old ballplayer. “Not many people can say they got 'the win' in the Little League World Series championship game,” Frazier recalled with a laugh recently. “When these pitchers talk smack, I say to them, ‘Hey, listen, I got the biggest 'W' ever, so don’t talk smack.” This Aug. 29 will mark 20 years since Frazier and his 11 teammates on the Toms River East Little League team – also known as "The Beast of the East" – captured America’s heart by winning the Little League World Series championship in Williamsport, Pa.

Tim Bontemps, The Washington Post Published 4:01 pm, Saturday, March 17, 2018 When Sports Illustrated published a bombshell investigation into the Dallas Mavericks last month, describing "a corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior," #MeToo officially arrived in the NBA. It was only a matter of time, with the movement empowering women to share their experiences of sexual harassment and assault sweeping through the entertainment, business and political worlds over the past year, and especially after recent high-profile domestic violence and sexual assault cases cropped up in both the NFL and MLB. "The #MeToo movement and the Time's Up movement will move into every aspect of society," said Nancy Hogsmead-Makar, the chief executive officer of Champion Women, an advocacy group for women's rights in sports.
