Sports Quick Hits: June 10th, 2021
💪MMA: What do you do when you’ve already conquered an entire sport? You find a new one. That’s what boxing superstar Claressa Shields is doing. The only boxer in history, female or male, to simultaneously hold all four major world titles in boxing in two weight classes, is making her MMA debut tonight. Queen of the ring and the octagon.
⚽️Soccer: Even though the NWSL is on an international break so that national teams can play pre-Olympic friendlies (like our very own CanWNT playing the Czech Republic tomorrow), the league is still making moves.
- On Tuesday, they announced the newest expansion team to debut in 2022 in San Diego. We would’ve preferred Toronto or Vancouver, but this works, too.
⚾️Baseball: It’s happening. Toronto Blue Jay Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is hitting dingers and having the season of his career. The 22-year-old slugger is tied for first in the league with 18 home runs in just 59 games, earning himself a spot on the MLB All-Star ballot. Don’t forget to vote!
