1. Here’s to happier baseball times: The vintage video of the day

From the great Twitter account of Fergie Jenkins, an old clip from him pitching at Wrigley Field:

And he might win for the line of the day, too — his new statue can’t be placed outside the friendly confines just yet.

2. And the recent highlight of the day: Vlad Guerrero Sr.

Going deep in the Dominican Republic for a “jonron”:

3. The MLBPA donated $1 million to workers affected by the lockout

4. This was the back page of the New York Daily News
