Starting in 2021,토토사이트 the MLB Secretariat has designated June 2 every year as “Lou Gehrig’s Day” to broaden awareness of Lou Gehrig’s disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), while simultaneously carrying out research fundraising activities. On June 2nd of this year, Lou Gehrig Day events were held in various ways, but the scenery of Citi Field, the home stadium of the New York Mets, was a little more special. The New York Mets team invited major league record expert Sarah Reims to throw the first pitch before the game, and Reims watched his boyfriend Matt Williams throw the pitch with a bright expression from the backstop behind the catcher. He was confined to a wheelchair.
Sara Reims is a familiar name to fans who regularly look for detailed records about the major leagues. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when, but from the mid-to-late 2010s, Reims’ Twitter posts began to gain minor fame. In the early days, he was like a so-called ‘baseball record fan’ who delivered rare statistics that were difficult for others to find. The unusual information found by combining sabermetrics and statcast also received a lot of positive responses. (Regardless of right or wrong, the fact that Reims is a woman is also one of the reasons why Reims is getting more public attention in reality.)
What made Reims more impressive was the volume and consistency of her Twitter posts. Even though she didn’t know him personally, he couldn’t help recognizing Reims’ passion and sincerity when he was constantly receiving alerts on Twitter. Reims’ popularity grew as his Twitter posts were increasingly cited by mainstream media outlets. She began making regular appearances on MLB Network and regularly commented on ‘The Numbers Game’ segment of ESPN’s Baseball Tonight Podcast.
