HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOWIE SHANKS!
Howard Samuel Shanks (July 21, 1890 – July 30, 1941), born in Chicago, IL, was an American professional baseball outfielder. He played in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1912 to 1925 for the Washington Senators, Boston Red Sox, and New York Yankees.
In 1921 Shanks led the American League in triples with 18.
In 1665 games over 14 seasons, Shanks posted a .253 batting average (1440-for-5699) with 604 runs, 211 doubles, 96 triples, 25 home runs, 620 RBI, 185 stolen bases, 415 bases on balls, .308 on-base percentage and .337 slugging percentage. He recorded a .950 fielding percentage primarily as an outfielder and third baseman but also played some games at first base, second base and shortstop as well. Baseball reference.

Artist & Producer Logic Signs Exclusive Deal With Twitch, allegedly worth in excess of 1 million cash.
In an interview with The Verge, Logic, who already had a small Twitch channel on which he infrequently streamed prior to signing the deal, said the deal is worth seven figures. That puts it in line with deals signed by big-name video game streamers like Imane “Pokimane” Anys and the aforementioned Ben “DrLupo” Lupo—quite a haul for somebody who previously did not have much of a presence on the platform and whose audience may or may not migrate over in a way that makes Twitch’s investment worthwhile.
“I’m blessed enough to have millions of fans and followers. So it is a great partnership,” he told The Verge. “I’m going to bring new eyes to their service, they’re going to bring new money to my bank account, and—I’m just kidding.”
The deal makes sense for Twitch, which given the worldwide & Universal "lock-downs" was suddenly rushed with mainstream musicians. When the COVID-19 pandemic first forced large amounts of the United States & World into "lockdown"; the Amazon owned platform became an even larger force for artists, athletes, & producers alike. Twitch has been trying to expand into music for years now, though. The platform plays host to thousands of endemic musicians, and official Twitch events almost always include famous musicians. Logic himself performed at TwitchCon in San Diego last year. That’s not to say that the marriage between Twitch and music has been an entirely idyllic match made in heaven, however; in recent times, powerful entities in the music world have taken to cracking down on streamers who play copyrighted music in the background of their broadcasts.
Logic is the first musician Twitch has signed to an exclusive deal, but it’s hard to say if he’ll actually do anything musical on Twitch. He’s set to premiere his new and apparently final album on the platform tomorrow, but after that, all bets are off. In the past he’s mostly played video games like Call of Duty on Twitch, but he’s also freestyled over beats (while playing Call of Duty).
Though he’s now a retired and the proud father of a Twitch channel, Logic says he’ll probably still make music in some form or fashion.
“I’m not fooling myself,” he told The Verge. “I’m a musician, I’ll always be one. I’m still gonna, like, rap on songs that probably won’t come out.”

On this day in 2008, Scott Medcudi, a.k.a. Kid Cudi, released his debut mixtape titled "A Kid Named Cudi". The tape's legacy in Hip-Hop & Music culture has been nearly unmatched, within the industry & underground scopes. The Cleveland, OH product has consistently pushed out billboard hits along with culturally iconic tracks since. Doing so whilst publicly advocating for social changes across multitudes of platforms & enduring his own battles with mental health disorders & substance abuse. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TRACK OFF IT??? As for me, 16. Cleveland Is The Reason ~ still pulls a whole lot of weight in the underground scene. Follow Cudi's moves & his music.
