Jessica Mendoza will have more of a presence on various ESPN platforms starting next baseball season.Mendoza signed a multiyear extension with ESPN to remain part of the “Sunday Night Baseball” announcer’s booth and make more studio appearances.In 2015 Addison Russell Jersey , Mendoza became the first female analyst for a nationally televised MLB game. She did her first Sunday night game on Aug. 30, 2015.“Being in New York for 10 days during the World Series and appearing on a bunch of shows, I felt like it was a trial run to have more of a studio presence,” Mendoza said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “The more consistently I started to do it, the more I grew to love it. It allows me to push baseball ideas and content in a bunch of different places.”Mendoza, who has been with the network since 2007, has already been a fixture on “Baseball Tonight” for many seasons but the new agreement means she will appear more regularly on “SportsCenter” and “Get Up!”Mendoza’s main assignment will remain “Sunday Night Baseball.” This will be her fourth full season but only her second working alongside Alex Rodriguez, Matt Vasgersian and Buster Olney. Mendoza said she quickly found a rapport with her boothmates. The Sunday night games will begin an hour earlier next season Sammy Sosa Jersey , at 7 p.m. Eastern.“We do so many East Coast games that you worry about what time they are ending. Plus we had a lot of extra-inning games last season,” she said. “The best part of games are during late innings, and hopefully this allows more people to tune in.”Mark Gross, ESPN’s senior vice president for production and remote events, lauded Mendoza’s work ethic and preparation as well as the relationships she’s formed with baseball executives, managers and players.Mendoza, who will be inducted into the National Softball Hall of Fame next year, will continue as a lead analyst during ESPN’s coverage of the Women’s College World Series. She was a four-time first-team All-American at Stanford and won gold (2004) and silver (2008) medals for the U.S. at the Olympics.“It’s just exciting to know this is going to keep going Joe Maddon Jersey ,” she said. “I still feel like I am a rookie and learning. I get to continue with that growth.” Two New Jersey brothers struck gold while searching through their collection of old baseball cards when they found five 1952 Topps cards that featured New York Yankees legend Mickey Mantle.On Wednesday, Vin A. Cherwoo of the Associated Press reported the siblings, who wished to be identified only by their first names, John and Ed, said the most valuable card from the group was valued at $1 million by Heritage Auctions."We always knew we had the cards, but they were just in the attic," John said. "We were fortunate our mother stayed and lived in the house until she was almost 102. Most people would have moved at some point, and in the move things like baseball cards and old-school books would get thrown away. Ours just stayed there for 50 years."John Willson Contreras Jersey , who transferred the cards to his basement after their mom died in 2006, said he was offered $8,000 for their entire collection sometime around 1980.He added no decision has been made about how to spend the money with the most valuable of the cards currently part of an auction that runs through Aug. 19."It seems tempting fate to be planning too far in advance of what are you going to do, a counting-your-chickens syndrome," John told the AP.Former NFL offensive lineman Evan Mathis sold his 1952 Mantle card for $2.88 million in April.
