Usually, when some minor league players are swapped, there’s barely a notice. Thursday, however, was different. The L.A. Angels dealt Matt Scioscia — yeah, the manager’s son — to the Cubs. The player the Angels got in return was Wayne Gretzky’s son, Trevor. Scioscia has a .222 average over three seasons in the minors. Gretzky…

‘Wolves marvel at Moyer’s achievement

Baseball finally came to Erie Insurance Arena. Sort of. Erie SeaWolves’ sluggers Rawley Bishop and Jordan Lennerton each hit unique home runs during Wednesday afternoon’s 2-1 victory over the Akron Aeros.

It’s a big weekend for two of baseball’s top-slugging prospects. The Washington Nationals’ Bryce Harper and Los Angeles’ Angels’ Mike Trout were called up Friday.
