Realmuto, turning runners on the corners with no outs situation into a runner on first, one-out situation. But the Phillies clawed back and got runners on second and third with two outs Alec Bohm at the plate. But when Bohm hit a ground ball to second base, the game appeared over. It was — just not in the way we expected.

Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. in regards to the Mass Shooting at the Uvalde Elementary School in Texas

The statement below is by Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. in regard to the mass shooting at the Uvalde Elementary School in Texas. “Today was another sickening moment in American history as we watched a mass shooting unfold at an elementary school taking the lives of 14 innocent, beautiful children and one teacher. My colleagues and I are beside ourselves seeing another tragic, heinous loss of life and want to provide our thoughts and prayers to the parents of these victims in Texas. That said, thoughts and prayers are not going to change the public health crisis that is endemic in our country and killing our friends and neighbors. Mass shootings, defined by four or more people shot in one incident, occurred at a rate of more than two a day in 2021. These instances have killed more than 700 people and injured almost 3,000 in upwards of 690 separate incidents. These crimes and the guns being used in them are impacting our most sacred places- our schools, our places of worship, our grocery stores and our workplaces- giving society the haunting feeling that nowhere is immune to these disgusting acts.
