OXON HILL, Md. Air Max Clearance Online . -- Given his dining choices in the minor leagues a decade ago, Freddie Freeman is thrilled with big league chow.While daily meal money on the road for major league baseball players is being cut from $100.50 to $30 under the sports new collective bargaining agreement, teams are assuming the cost of providing clubhouse food spreads for home games and road trips.Peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches is what we lived on. In the minor leagues, you find a Waffle House and go get that, the Atlanta Braves star first baseman said Monday. Its come a long way, What you do in the minor leagues makes you appreciate what you have in the big leagues, and what we have in the big leagues is so amazing.The change is estimated to save players about $6,000 annually, since the cost of food at home games will be not coming from their own money.Players have long paid clubhouse dues on to cover the cost of spreads, which averaged $70 per day per player this year. Many pay additional tips to clubhouse managers, money redistributed to all the clubhouse attendants.I think the driving source was that there was an unevenness in visitors clubhouses in terms of the quality of food that was provided, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said, and players have become progressively more focused on what theyre eating and drinking.The change eliminates a problem that occurred last season in Seattle. Fox reported Chicago White Sox players refused to pay last July 20, protesting a Mariners policy that directed 60 percent of clubhouse dues go to a team-managed account to pay for food and the salaries of clubhouse assistants.I think it just simplifies everything, just makes that whole process easier for us, said Boston pitcher Rick Porcello, the AL Cy Young Award winner. Youre traveling and youre going from clubhouse to clubhouse, it can be a lot to think about at times after a game when youre trying to get out of there on getaway day. Air Max Wholesale Free Shipping .

NEW YORK -- Every morning, three young sisters wake up together with their mom in one bed in a Brooklyn homeless shelter. Every afternoon, they train in a sport that they hope will put them on a path to a better life.Tai Sheppard, 11, and sisters Rainn, 10, and Brooke, 8, have all blossomed since taking up track and field a year and a half ago, rising to the top tier of age-group national rankings and earning a spot in the Junior Olympic Games, now underway in Houston.This is a means to get them to college, says their mother, Tonia Handy, to opening doors that maybe I cant open for them.Handy, a 46-year-old who works answering phones at a car service, has been raising her family alone for nearly a decade, enduring constant financial hardship and even tragedy. Three years ago, the girls 17-year-old half-brother was fatally shot in the street by another teen over what investigators said was a perceived insult.She always managed to make ends meet, though, until early last year, when she and the girls were evicted from their apartment in Brooklyns Bedford-Stuyvesant section for failing to pay the rent, landing them first in a motel shelter in Queens and then in the apartment shelter on a gritty Bed-Stuy street.The first time we got there, there was just roaches everywhere, Tai says. Every time I looked on the floor, a roach. And every time I looked on the ceiling there was a roach. It was horrible.Handy, however, has worked to make the apartment clean and livable. But she has also made a point of not getting too comfortable in what she hopes is a temporary situation. The only decorations are the many awards the girls have won on the track, with trophies crowding the top of the lone dresser and medals hanging from every doorknob.I dont bring in anything, she says. When Im ready and I have an apartment, Im just gone.The girls, who still have their estranged fathers last name, Sheppard, got into track in January 2015 when their baby sitter, looking for some kind of activity to keep them occupied, signed them up for a track meet that did not require any entry fees.It just so happened that the founder of the Brooklyn-based Jeunness Track Club was at the competition scouting for new talent. Air Max Clearance Sale. By the end of the first day, Jean Bell had given her business cards to each of the girls separately with the instructions to have their mother call or just show up to practice.It wasnt until they turned out for practice together that Bell realized the girls were sisters.Its been very tough for them, says Bell, an administrative law judge who grew up in the nearby projects. Theyve been moved from one shelter to the next. Their belongings are shuffled around. They dont have a lot to work with but they do the best with what they have.The 20 girls on the Jeuness team come from a variety of backgrounds, but none of them are rich. Parents and coaches pool their money to provide the funds for the girls to go to the Junior Olympics.The mission of the team is to keep girls on track, both academically and athletically to set them up for college scholarships.The sisters are well on their way.Each has qualified for the Junior Olympics in multiple events. Rainn was the top qualifier for the 3,000-meter run with a time of 10 minutes, 44 seconds -- 30 seconds faster than the next-closest qualifier.Tai runs the 400 and 800, as well as the 80-meter hurdles.Brooke, the youngest, qualified for the 800, the 1,500 and the high jump, even though the team doesnt have the equipment to allow her to practice. Her only jumps have come in competitions.The girls are set to board a plane with the rest of their team for their first time Sunday to head to Houston for the track and field events, which begin Monday. But their mother wont be with them.Im not going because the shelter has a curfew and I still have to work, Handy says. Its not that kind of job where you can take time off. You dont go, you dont get paid.But Handy is hopeful she will soon land a new job that would make it possible to get a place of her own again, and to get most weekends off so she could attend more of her daughters meets.Next year, she says, I think it will be different. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseyscheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
