Curt Schilling Not Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame in Final Year on the Ballot

Curt Schilling Not Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame in Final Year on the Ballot

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling once again did not get elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame after ten years of being on the ballot.

To earn a slot in the hall of fame, a candidate needs to earn 75 percent of the vote, and though Schilling appeared to be trending that way over the past few years of being on the ballot, he earned only 58.6 percent of the vote this year. His lack of support likely stems from the fact he requested to be removed from the ballot last year after earning 71.1 percent of the vote.

“I can say at this point I am mentally done,” he wrote in an open letter. “I know math and I know trends and I know I will not attain the 75% threshold for induction.

“I will not participate in the final year of voting,” he added. “I am requesting to be removed from the ballot. I’ll defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player.”

Schilling had jumped nearly a full 20 points in just three years, having earned 51.2 percent in 2018, 60.9 percent in 2019, 70.0 percent in 2020, and 71.1 percent in 2021. Going forward, Schilling can only be allowed into the Hall of Fame by the Veteran’s Committee.

Having pitched in the major leagues for 20 seasons, between 1988 and 2007, Schilling closed his career on a high note when he helped lead the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series Championship in 86 years, breaking the much-dreaded “Curse of the Bambino.” Important highlights from Masslive:

He went 216-146 with a 3.46 ERA, 3.23 FIP, 1.14 WHIP, 3,116 strikeouts and 83 complete games in 569 career games (436 starts). He spent time with the Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Diamondbacks and Red Sox.

He was a 20-game winner three times and struck out 300 or more batters in a season three times.

He initially was drafted by the Red Sox in the second round in 1986. Boston traded him with Brady Anderson to the Orioles for Mike Boddicker on July 29, 1988.

After retiring in 2007, Schilling became a lightning rod for political controversy and left-wing hatred due to his outspoken conservative viewpoints, which led to his eventual firing as an ESPN commentator in 2016 after criticizing the transgender agenda.

“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic,” he tweeted at the time.

Schilling also appeared to defend the Capitol Hill rioters on January 6 of last year when he tweeted: “You cowards sat on your hands, did nothing while liberal trash looted rioted and burned for Air Jordan’s and big screens, sit back, stfu, and watch folks start a confrontation for shit that matters like rights, democracy and the end of govt corruption.”

When asking to be removed from the ballot last year, Schilling lamented how his legacy had been equated with men who have doped or abused women:

As I’ve stated often over the past years to those I’ve spoken with in my heart I am at peace. Nothing, zero, none of the claims being made by any of the writers hold merit. In my 22 years playing professional baseball in the most culturally diverse locker rooms in sports I’ve never said or acted in any capacity other than being a good teammate.
I’ve certainly been exposed to racism and sexism and homophobia as it’s part of who human beings are. I’ve played with and talked with gay teammates. I’ve played with wife beaters, adulterers, assaulted, drug addicts and alcoholics. I’ve never hit a woman, driven drunk, done drugs, PEDs or otherwise, assaulted anyone or committed any sort of crime.

But I’m now somehow in a conversation with two men who cheated, and instead of being accountable they chose to destroy others lives to protect their lie.

People on social media voiced their discontent with Schilling’s snub.

Australian Open Censors Fans’ ‘Where Is Peng Shuai?’ Shirts, Raising Questions About Tournament’s Chinese Sponsorship

Australian Open Censors Fans’ ‘Where Is Peng Shuai?’ Shirts, Raising Questions About Tournament’s Chinese Sponsorship

Tennis Australia demanded that fans wearing T-shirts with the question “Where is Peng Shuai?” remove their shirts at the Australian Open over the weekend.

“They are asking our friend to take her shirt off,” an incredulous fan can be heard saying in a viral video showing the peaceful confrontation with security.

“The Australian Open does have a rule that you can’t have political slogans,” a security officer appears to say in the video. “They are allowed to confiscate your shirts and the banner.”

Peng Shuai’s story caused international concern when the world’s No. 1 doubles player suspiciously disappeared after taking to social media to accuse a senior Chinese Communist Party official of sexual assault. After criticism from the Women’s Tennis Association and other global voices, China sent the WTA an email supposedly from Peng insisting “everything is fine.”

Shortly afterward, Chinese state media released footage of Peng and had the CCP-friendly International Olympic Committee publish a still photo of what was supposedly a video conference with Peng. A month later, the tennis star denied ever making the allegations of sexual assault, raising more questions about her freedom to communicate to the world without CCP censorship. Her absence from the Australian Open only heightens fears for her freedom and safety.

A voice in the viral video can be heard arguing that Peng’s disappearance is not a political issue so much as a human rights one that directly applies to the Australian Open because of Peng’s status as a world-class tennis player. Tennis Australia, however, fell back on a “no political slogans” excuse for demanding the fans remove their shirts.

“Under our ticket conditions of entry we don’t allow clothing, banners or signs that are commercial or political,” a spokesman told ESPN. “Peng Shuai’s safety is our primary concern. We continue to work with the WTA and global tennis community to seek more clarity on her situation and will do everything we can to ensure her well-being.”

Czechoslovakian-American tennis champ Martina Navratilova joined in the criticism of Tennis Australia for its apparent kowtowing to the CCP.

“I find it really, really cowardly. I think they are wrong on this. This is not a political statement, this is a human rights statement,” she said. “[Tennis Australia is] just really capitulating on this issue … letting the Chinese really dictate what they do at their own Slam. I just find it really weak.”

French tennis star Nicolas Mahut also slammed Tennis Australia for the move and highlighted the sports group’s financial ties to China. “What lack of courage! What if you did not have Chinese sponsors,” he wrote.

In 2018, Chinese liquor company Luzhou Laojiao signed what Sporting News called “one of the biggest sponsorship deals in the Australian Open’s history,” becoming an associate sponsor of the Australian Open for the following five years. One of the courts was even named “Arena 1573” in honor of the year the distillery supposedly traces back to.

Sporting News also cited a report by The Australian, noting “the partnership with Luzhou Laojiao is the second phase of a long-term strategy Tennis Australia has in China, with the governing body aiming to double the broadcast hours beamed into China over the next two years.”

Gonzaga Suspends Legendary Alum John Stockton’s Season Tickets over Mask Refusal

Gonzaga Suspends Legendary Alum John Stockton’s Season Tickets over Mask Refusal

Former NBA star John Stockton, Gonzaga University’s most famous alumni, has had his season tickets revoked by the school because he won’t wear a mask at home games.

The famed Utah Jazz point guard recently told the Spokane, Washington, Spokesman-Review that the school canceled his season tickets because he refused a demand that he wear a mask because, as a prominent spectator, his mask refusal is conspicuous.

“Basically, it came down to, they were asking me to wear a mask to the games and being a public figure, someone a little bit more visible, I stuck out in the crowd a little bit,” Stockton said. “And therefore, they received complaints and felt like from whatever the higher-ups – those weren’t discussed, but from whatever it was higher up – they were going to have to either ask me to wear a mask or they were going to suspend my tickets.”

Stockton reported that Gonzaga Athletic Director Chris Standiford let him know of the school’s decision to bar him from the stadium. Still, he also noted that several officials had asked him to wear a mask.

Standiford would not comment on the situation with Stockton but did say that the athletics department is only adhering to rules set forth by the school and the state. Standiford also cited the closing of concessions as an example of the school’s efforts at COVID mitigation.

Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh also noted that masks are required, telling the paper, “it is imperative that we commit to wearing face coverings while in indoor, congregate settings. Masks are required in all classrooms, labs, and common areas such as offices, study lounges, hallways, library spaces, and places where others are present (with obvious exceptions, such as dining and certain fitness center activities). Students, ticket-holders, and all those attending basketball games at McCarthey Center and sporting events indoors are required to wear masks at all times.”

Stockton did say that while the masking and vaccination demands have put stress on his relationship with the school, he does not consider it a deal-breaker at this time.

The famed NBA player is known as a vaccine skeptic. Even in the Spokesman-Review interview, he claimed that more than 100 pro athletes had died immediately after being vaccinated. He also said that tens of thousands have died from taking the COVID vaccine.

The CDC claims it has received reports of 11,468 deaths of Americans in the weeks following vaccination. However, the agency has not determined if any of those deaths are related to the various coronavirus vaccines themselves or are from other causes.

Beijing Orders Mass Coronavirus Testing as Cases Spike Before Olympics

Compulsory mass coronavirus testing was ordered in parts of Beijing on Sunday following a runaway series of infections as China tightened anti-disease controls two weeks out from the Winter Olympics.

The government told citizens they must comply with the testing regime in areas of the Chinese capital deemed at high risk for infection. They also ordered locals not to leave the city after 25 cases were found in the Fengtai district and 14 elsewhere.

The ruling Chinese Communist Party is stepping up enforcement of its “zero tolerance” strategy aimed at isolating every infected person as Beijing prepares to open the Winter Games on Feb. 4 under intensive anti-virus controls, AP reports.

On Sunday, Fengtai residents lined up on snow-covered sidewalks in freezing weather for testing before being ordered to await further instructions.

No excuses were accepted for anyone seeking to avoid medical scrutiny, in line with China’s strict demands for social obedience before the games begin.

The Chinese capital must “take the most resolute, decisive and strict measures to block the transmission chain of the epidemic,” a city government spokesman, Xu Hejian, told a news conference.

He added the situation is “severe and complex” without elaborating further.

Starting on Sunday, residents who purchased medicines related to fever, cough, infections and dry pharyngeal pain within the past 14 days or in the future have to take a nucleic acid test within 72 hours.

Li Ang, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Health Commission delivered the new decree at the conference, according to the Global Times.

The Olympics are being held under strict controls that are meant to isolate athletes, reporters and officials from the outside world. Athletes are required to be vaccinated or undergo a quarantine after arriving in China.

Other outbreaks prompted the government to impose travel bans on the major cities of Xi’an and Tianjin, as Breitbart News reported.

WATCH: Australian Open Fans Asked to Remove T-Shirts Asking ‘Where Is Peng Shuai?’

WATCH: Australian Open Fans Asked to Remove T-Shirts Asking ‘Where Is Peng Shuai?’

Fans at the Australian Open were asked to remove tee shirts with the slogan “Where is Peng Shuai?” an allusion to the continuing mystery surrounding the whereabouts of a Chinese tennis star who accused that country’s vice president of rape.

As Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston reports:

Early in November, Shuai posted a message to her Chinese social media account saying that she had been sexually abused in 2019 by Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli. But her Weibo account was quickly shut down and the post was deleted. Shuai then spent nearly a month in isolation, not being seen on her own in public for more than three weeks.

These events led to international worry and outcry over Peng Shuai’s safety.

On Saturday, in a widely shared video on social media, Australian police and event security officials can be seen telling a group of spectators that they would have to remove their “Where is Peng Shuai?” tee shirts. Due to rules set forth by Tennis Australia which ban political messaging.

“The Australian Open does have a rule that you can’t have political slogans … it’s a rule that it’s a condition of entry.

“Tennis Australia does set the rules, and regardless of what you’re saying — and I’m not saying you can’t have those views — but I am saying that Tennis Australia sets the rules here.

“[Security is] allowed to confiscate the shirts and the banner.”

A spokesperson from Tennis Australia told ESPN that their decision to have security force the fans to remove the tee shirts was made for Peng Shuai’s “safety.”

“Under our ticket conditions of entry we don’t allow clothing, banners or signs that are commercial or political,” a spokesperson said via ESPN. “Peng Shuai’s safety is our primary concern. We continue to work with the WTA and global tennis community to seek more clarity on her situation and will do everything we can to ensure her well-being.”

Of course, asking about the safety and whereabouts of a woman who mysteriously vanishes after accusing a ruthless regime member of rape is not a political act. Nor is there any evidence to suggest that increasing public awareness and attention to Peng Shuai’s case would put her life in danger. In fact, it was primarily due to public outcry and the Women’s Tennis Association that China felt it necessary to release an albeit heavily coerced video of the tennis star recanting her rape accusations against the Chinese vice president.

Even more troubling is that reporters attending the Australian Open are under no restriction from asking questions about Peng Shuai. If wearing a tee shirt asking “Where is Peng Shuai?” poses a threat to her life, one would think asking questions about her safety in a press conference would also pose a threat. Moreover, none of the athletes at the Open are forbidden from addressing the topic either.

WTA Council Member Victoria Azarenka said that there “hasn’t been that much development in terms of contact with Peng Shuai.”

Aaron Rodgers Blasts Joe Biden for Calling Covid ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated,’ Mocks His Public Speaking

Aaron Rodgers Blasts Joe Biden for Calling Covid ‘Pandemic of the Unvaccinated,’ Mocks His Public Speaking

Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers recently blasted Joe Biden for claiming that the U.S. is suffering a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” The future Hall of Famer also took a shot at the president’s public speaking.

In Sept., Biden insisted during remarks delivered from the White House, that, “This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. And it’s caused by the fact that despite America having an unprecedented and successful vaccination program, despite the fact that for almost five months free vaccines have been available in 80,000 different locations, we still have nearly 80 million Americans who have failed to get the shot.”

Last month, Biden even personally addressed Rodgers in Kentucky when he exclaimed, “tell that quarterback he’s gotta get the vaccine.”

It appears that Rodgers is just as annoyed at Biden.

“When the president of the United States says, ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ it’s because him and his constituents, which, I don’t know how there are any if you watch any of his attempts at public speaking, but I guess he got 81 million votes,” Rodgers said during a visit with the Pat McAfee show, according to ESPN.

“But when you say stuff like that, and then you have the CDC, which, how do you even trust them, but then they come out and talk about 75% of the COVID deaths have at least four comorbidities. And you still have this fake White House set saying that this is the pandemic of the unvaccinated, that’s not helping the conversation,” Rodgers added.

According to the CDC, a study from December 2020 and October 2021 of 1.2 million fully vaccinated people, 189 people had severe reactions to COVID, and 36 died. Twenty-eight of those deaths were of people who had at least four of eight risk factors, which is about 78 percent, ESPN added.

Further, in a nation of 330 million people, the CDC claims that 209 million are “fully vaccinated.” And many of those left can’t be vaccinated for age and medical reasons.

If You’re A Tennis Star, Being Unvaxxed Is As Scandalous As Being Disappeared By A Communist Government

If You’re A Tennis Star, Being Unvaxxed Is As Scandalous As Being Disappeared By A Communist Government

Two tennis stars have been players in rather high-profile events involving authoritarian governments lately. The fact that they’ve received roughly equivalent attention worldwide is both telling and alarming, considering the vast differences between their cases — and the fact that, while Western media criticize one government for its abuses, they’ve been lauding the other.

In November, Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai disappeared after using social media to accuse a senior CCP official of sexual assault. After criticism from the Women’s Tennis Association and other global voices, China sent the WTA an email supposedly from Peng insisting “everything is fine.”

Shortly afterward, Chinese state media released footage of Peng, and had the CCP-friendly International Olympic Committee publish a still photo of what was supposedly a video conference with Peng. A month later, the tennis star denied ever making the allegations of sexual assault, raising more questions about her freedom to communicate to the world without CCP censorship.

“I have never spoken or written about anyone sexually assaulting me,” she said, adding that she has “always been free.”

Peng Shuai’s disappearance rightly prompted backlash around the globe, including the U.S. decision to stage a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Olympics next month. Corporate media outlets participated in this outrage, to their credit.

But another tennis star “scandal” appears to have spurred just as much outrage from media chatterers in the West — and the fact that our corporate media treats it that way shows just how little they’re bothered by authoritarian tendencies at home.

This second saga started when no. 1 men’s tennis player Novak Djokovic arrived in Australia with a medical exemption from the Covid-19 shot because he had beaten Covid in December. After nine hours at the airport, the Serbian star’s travel visa was canceled and he was forced to quarantine at a hotel used to house refugees.

A judge overruled the visa cancellation and ordered Djokovic freed, but shortly afterward Australia’s immigration minister re-canceled the visa and Djokovic was deported from Australia, barred from participation in the Australian Open.

If the Djokovic v. Australia situation merits coverage or outrage, it’s over the Australian government’s shocking arc toward authoritarianism over the past two years (though it’s obviously not on the same level as the Chinese government’s treatment of Peng Shuai — at least Australia is honest about rounding its people up into camps).

The complications of an unvaccinated tennis star just do not merit the same international outcry as the apparent forceful disappearance of a tennis star who challenges a communist government, full stop. But not only are corporate media pearl-clutching as much over Djokovic as they did over Peng Shuai, this time they’re on the authoritarians’ side.

Search the Washington Post website, for example, and you’ll find more than 40 articles about Djokovic and his vaccination exemption saga. (That’s more than they ran on Peng Shuai’s disappearance.) One op-ed from the editorial board proclaims “the Post’s view” is that “Novak Djokovic puts more people than himself in danger.”

MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin jumped on Djokovic as one of “these anti-vaxx sports stars who think the rules somehow don’t apply to them,” and the Washington Post’s Max Boot decried Djokovic’s “covid misconduct,” insisting it “shows that true greatness still eludes him.” It’s not hard to find more examples. Djokovic’s pushback against Australia’s Covid regime has ruffled feathers.

The media bandwagoners bashing Djokovic are just making themselves look petty and silly. Their words and attention would be far better spent criticizing what everyone formerly thought was still a free and democratic country down under for locking down its citizens, using facial recognition to keep them contained, putting the Covid unclean into camps, and arresting dissidents.

Even better, the talking heads of the media and sports worlds could call attention to the human rights abuses perpetrated by the Chinese government against not just Peng Shuai but Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang — a crisis about which an NBA part-owner just told the world he “doesn’t care.” With the Beijing Olympics just weeks away, the time is opportune.

But instead, the ire is directed at a Serbian tennis player who dared to get a doctor’s note. Western media (for the most part, for now, at least in this particular instance) are willing to criticize authoritarianism in China — but when our own governments start to show similar tendencies, the dissidents are the ones on the chopping block.

NCAA Embraces Radical Gender Policy That Promotes Men Infiltrating Women’s Sports

NCAA Embraces Radical Gender Policy That Promotes Men Infiltrating Women’s Sports

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) board of governors voted on Wednesday to adopt a policy that allows and even encourages males to participate in women’s sports despite the physical advantage they have in competition.

Under the new rules, male athletes who claim to be female will be allowed to play in women’s sports based on the guidelines and determination of each sport’s governing body. Those sports that do not answer to a higher body will automatically be required to follow the International Olympic Committee’s lax rules, which use subjective judgment to determine participation.

“We are steadfast in our support of transgender student-athletes and the fostering of fairness across college sports,” Georgetown President John DeGioia said in a release. “It is important that NCAA member schools, conferences and college athletes compete in an inclusive, fair, safe and respectful environment and can move forward with a clear understanding of the new policy.”

Conversations about the NCAA’s participation policies resurfaced this year when male University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas switched from the men’s swim team to the women’s swim team after claiming he was no longer a man. After the switch, Thomas easily beat female competitors and even smashed records that women swimmers had not yet reached.

Under the NCAA’s new policy, which proudly claims to “preserve opportunity for transgender student-athletes while balancing fairness, inclusion and safety for all who compete,” male athletes such as Thomas will be allowed to participate in women’s sports based on testosterone requirements set by each sport’s governing body.

Proponents of the policy claim the testing requirements will eliminate inequalities created by biology, but studies show that the elimination of just one of the genetic factors that set males apart from females does not ensure physical equality in sex-based competitions.

Opponents of the policy note that endorsing males’ participation in women’s sports not only removes opportunities for women but also violates federal laws such as Title IX that intend to protect opportunities for female athletes.

“The NCAA’s decision to endorse the participation of biological men in women’s sports, while making each sporting body decide the particular rules for participation, is a colossal act of cowardice. Make no mistake, by asking female athletes to step aside to make room for biological males, the NCAA discriminates against women,” said Jennifer C. Braceras, director of the Independent Women’s Law Center.

“Allowing biological males to compete in women’s events not only reduces opportunities for females, it undermines the entire rationale behind single-sex competition. It’s time for athletic governing bodies to stand up for women’s sports,” stated Inez Stepman, a senior policy analyst at IWF and IWLC and a Federalist contributor.
