Players are not, however, able to sign deals “in affiliation” with their school or section, meaning they can’t wear school uniforms or logos.
New York is the first state to legalize high school NIL as we start to see the effects of the NCAA’s decision trickle down.
On The Brink
In a postseason where starting pitchers are averaging just four innings per game, only three of 52 starters have thrown over 100 pitches. Yesterday, Houston’s Framber Valdez flipped the narrative:
AL: Houston Astros9vs. Boston Red Sox 1
Houston starting pitcher Framber Valdez threw eight innings, only allowing three hits and one run. He became the first pitcher in the 2021 postseason to pitch eight innings in a game.
The Red Sox head to Houston for game 6, looking to force game 7 with a win.
Houston leads the series 3-2.
NL: Atlanta Braves9vs. LA Dodgers 2
Eddie Rosario continued his hot hitting for Atlanta, going 4-5 with 3 runs scored and 4 RBIs.
For LA, it does not look good. To make matters worse, star Justin Turner went down with a grade 2 hamstring strain and is out for the rest of the playoffs.
Atlanta leads the series 3-1.
NL: Atlanta Braves vs. LA Dodgers - 8:08 ET on TBS
Atlanta ace Max Fried, who allowed just two runs in six innings to the Dodgers in game 1, takes the mound on full rest. For LA, it’s a bullpen game.
ML: LAD -140
If you’re a Braves fan, don’t get too excited just yet. The Braves led the Dodgers 3-1 in last year’s NL Championship Series before the Dodgers roared back to not only win that series but also the World Series.
