Molina expressed his frustration by glaring at Chicago’s dugout. Umpire Will Little wound up warning both dugouts.
“You get one mistake that sails and flies up by your head, you’re not happy about it. But when you see a number of them happen that way, you start to take it pretty personal, and I don’t blame him,” Mike Matheny said of Molina.
“We’re not trying to pitch anybody up and in like that, and then you start talking about around the head. Nobody else should, either. Guys need to stand up for themselves and we need to stand up for them.”
锘? Football and athletics always has seemed to be an afterthought at Georgia Tech. Education and the struggle for excellence has always been the priority at Georgia Tech.
I m a Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech and a helluva engineer. A helluva, helluva Authentic Chris Thompson Jersey , helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer.
Those words from one of America s most famous fight songs typify the spirit of athletics at Georgia Tech, a school with one of the most storied and honored traditions in college athletics.
Ever since 1892, when the first football team was organized on The Flats, Georgia Tech teams in all sports have represented the Institute in outstanding fashion while producing some of the best known names in athletics. Tech has won four National Championships in football in the years 1917, 1928, 1952, and 1990. The Yellow Jacket football teams have one of the nation s best records in bowl games at 22 14. Over the past 100 years, Tech has had only 12 head football coaches: John Heisman, Bill Alexander, Bobby Dodd, Bud Carson, Bill Fulcher Authentic Dashaun Phillips Jersey , Pepper Rodgers, Bill Curry, Bobby Ross, Bill Lewis, George O Leary, Chan Gailey and the present coach, Paul Johnson.
In the fall of 1891, before Georgia Tech organized a football team of its own, a game was scheduled between Auburn and Georgia. Due to the rivalry established in baseball games between Tech and Georgia (which is still strong after more than 100 years), the Tech students were invited to the game to cheer, of course, for Auburn. At a mass meeting, the students appointed a committee to recommend colors to be worn and cheers to be used at the game. The committee suggested white and gold, and about 200 students attended the game wearing school colors for the first time.
In 1893 Authentic Jamison Crowder Jersey , when Tech s football team played its first official game against Georgia, a group of young women from the Lucy Cobb Institute for Girls, dressed in white and gold, attended the game to cheer for Tech. These ladies were some of the earliest Tech supporters to show their allegiance by wearing the now traditional colors.
The Yellow Jacket nickname and mascot are two of the most beloved trademarks of Georgia Tech athletic teams, but many conflicting accounts exist as to the origins and beginnings of the Yellow Jacket. One thing that is clear, however, is that the nickname did not grow out of the familiar six legged insect, but instead that the insect mascot, known as Buzz, grew out of the nickname.
As far as can be determined, the first reference to Tech students as Yellowjackets appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in 1905 and became common usage at that time.
Historians say the name, spelled as one word, was first used to describe supporters who attended Tech athletic events, dressed in yellow coats and jackets. The actual mascot was conceived at a later date.
Other common nicknames which have applied to Georgia Tech teams include Engineers Authentic Mason Foster Jersey , which is still used by some writers; the Techs, the first known nickname which was phased out sometime around 1910; and the Blacksmiths, which was common between 1902 and 1904.
