Bellinger entered the game 5-for-44 (.114) in 12 career World Series games. The blast marked his second World Series big fly and was his fourth homer of this postseason, tying him for the third-most homers by a Dodgers player in a single postseason, behind teammate and NLCS MVP Corey Seager in 2020 (six) and Davey Lopes in 1978 (five).
Including his NLCS-clinching homer in Game 7 on Sunday, the 25-year-old has gone deep in successive games. Bill Madlock is the only player in Dodgers history to homer in three straight playoff games, having done so in the 1985 NLCS.
"It was one of those where it's the first time I challenged it, and I closed to the wall, I dropped it, and then my shoulder hit the wall,” Bellinger said. “And then, I was, 'OK. I'm fine.' Mookie and [Chris Taylor] are like, 'All right, listen. Now you know. You're going to come up with a catch later in the game.’
Still not feeling good enough to take his chances with another elbow bump, though. The foot tap is funnier, anyway.
“I think I'll continue to do that,” Bellinger said. “Maybe my whole career -- who knows?”Boston Red Sox Face Coverings

Yeah, NASCAR, the WWE, the PBA, the PGA, professional volleyball and soccer leagues both here and across the “pond” are now finding some wiggle room to perform live. All attempts are just that, attempts at recreating what once was, so that now at least those sporting venues can be used surrounded by a visible void of fans.
The NBA has its Magic Kingdom arena bubble in Orlando. They will join the fray within the next two weeks without fans.
The NFL has canceled the shortened preseason scheduled for August as the full season is now in jeopardy. They, the owners, players and fans, all await the pandemic performance scores from the MLB 60 game season.

How to Avoid Foggy Glasses When Wearing a Face Mask
Why do your glasses fog up when you’re wearing a face mask?
British optometrists Margrain and Owen described the mechanism that causes glasses to mist up. Glass or plastic lenses will usually attain a temperature that’s close to that of their environment. When you are in a cool place and exhale into your mask, the mask blocks and re-directs some of your breath up toward the top edge of the mask and under your glasses. the warm moist air of your breath reaches the lens surface. When the warm breath hits the cool lens, the water in the breath condenses causing your lenses to fog up.
The problem with having foggy lenses, apart from being just plain annoying, is that you’ll want to grab your eyeglasses to either wipe them off or lift them temporarily away from your face to allow them to de-fog before re-applying them. And this breaks the cardinal rule of preventing the spread of Covid-19, namely “Don’t touch your face.”
How to stop glasses from fogging up when wearing a face mask?
For all you eyeglass wearers who’ve been struggling to read your grocery list under a constant fog or panicking when you find yourself adjusting your eyeglasses in the supermarket, here are a few tips from medical providers for avoiding foggy glasses while wearing a face mask that won’t harm your glasses.
The Rub-a-Dub-Dub: According to an article published in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, a simple method to prevent eyeglass fogging while wearing a mask is to wash your glasses with soapy water, shake off the excess and let the lenses air dry. By not rinsing or toweling off the glasses, you leave a fine soap film on the lenses that reduces the surface tension and causes the water molecules to spread out in an even transparent layer that prevents the glasses from fogging up. In fact, the anti-fogging drops used for scuba masks and ski goggles work exactly this way.
The Tissue Trap: Another trick you can use to prevent your breath from fogging up your glasses is to place a folded tissue between your mouth and the mask. This will absorb the moist warm air before it can reach the top of your mask and get under your glasses. Just remember to tie your mask snugly so that the tissue won’t fall out of the bottom.MLB Face Coverings Online Sale
