Maybe just maybe. Luke Heimlich. Might need to find a different line of work. The the recent Oregon State pitcher and graduate. Among the death may be the best pitcher in College Baseball last two years and they convicted child molester. It have a hard time finding work in the game of baseball he was skipped over the last two years through forty rounds. Of the Major League draft. On Tuesday. The Chinese professional baseball league team announced that they had signed him. And that he is already in Taiwan where the league is based. The announcement. Not surprisingly did not make reference to his criminal record. However the post on Chinese social media got plenty of responses. Nearly a thousand. And according to Twitter. The Chinese professional baseball league official one of them. Has decided not to approve new conflicts contract. My CV and they see the CP BL. Includes players from Taiwan Japan. And Americans. Players make on average between 50121000. Dollars month foreign players make a lot more. However the league has had a number of game fixing and gambling scandals. Over the past two decades. That was really all the talk when I was over in Japan it's like don't go to. Don't go to Taiwan don't play there so I really yeah I never even entertain that thought but. Beggars can't be accusers when you talk about Luke I'm like but apparently can't even get a job there so. I mean I mean. It took that really surprised you're a great deal. The fact that he can't play over there kind of really I mean if you can't play there working and you play. That's probably it. Andrew and I were being somewhat joking during the break that why you were gone Bruce. Football team in Italy. It coach Baer. But Mike is set I think it's time maybe for Luke Heimlich. Find a different line of work because it doesn't sound to me like he's gonna get paid play baseball. Anytime soon certainly but maybe never. If you can't go to China. And leave your past behind. And hope today tag. Debt. That follow you around in this case one of the worst. Child molest her. I don't know where you're gonna do it yeah. I mean. I you I don't know. So. The and the united. I don't know I I I wouldn't count on seeing this guy anywhere. That they're paying somebody to play baseball and. Now so. Yeah apparently weaker. The time at the time came and went but when the royals kicked tires on him murmur that was. For about five minutes count all the rage and Dayton Moore was actually on record as saying they would you know we're doing our due diligence and we're gonna check this kid back hand out and I would imagine push back he got made his mind up foreign took. I mean I. And I I just don't. I don't he. I don't. Speedy outside. And involved with your French and I just I don't I just don't they and I don't. And I don't know when it will ever be. Acceptable or. Mean even if people feel like quote be paid it is crichton. You know any status. Not his poll as it were and I mean I think that's the kind of thing that. And that's the kind of thing that just doesn't it just doesn't go away. In no way you can't not cannot run the whole act now so. That would be my thinking anyway in that regard. Yeah I just think how I guess I was a little surprised if you got it and but. You know there are a I guess that there are certain things that they're good people. And I just won't put up where it and that I think is probably. Probably one. And then in all walks of life no matter of the country mean that it yeah yeah it's not as if he can go somewhere where. Child molestation is that it's not a big deal over here. The yen and indicate it is a big deal will always be of the deal and so. I I can't imagine him playing baseball somewhere. At this point forward I just can I don't know who in the world would I would take a chance on him. Literally who who in the world would. China water cooler in United States won't and so. All right an abbreviated OTD. On this day in 1984. Rethinking of when you think when I see track and field. I think all of that remote. The correct answer Carl Lewis. Thank you speak he won his third gold medal on this day in Los Angeles. Very. He went on to win. Nine Olympic gold. Eight the world championship golds to pan am games gold and three goodwill game goals. For a total of 2222. Gold medals not just the long jump of course. Four by. 400 meters. 200 meters of Frederick Carleton both strike being the national. And nobody's perfect. God didn't get everything does he called journalists that they've been well. Maybe he didn't practice. He's listening. And of course if you were involved. In the whole time when Tim Johnson. Where are generally acclaimed as the cops greater in the world where.
