CNN/SI, Other Outlets Confuse Names
For my fellow Swallows fans out there, I have some good news. Yakult righthander Kevin Hodges is indeed going to be on the mound at Meiji Jingu Stadium next season and will not be toiling in the minors with the Twins, as had been reported earlier.
Kevin wrote to me to let everyone know that most likely the report circulating in the U.S. baseball media that claimed he was coming back to the states was likely a result of confusing him with a minor leaguer named Kevin Hodge. I'm sure you'll join me in wishing that Hodges has another stellar year with the birds.
