Base­ball might be a mi­nor sport in South Africa, but it is a ma­jor game in the US. On Wed­nes­day, South African Mpho Ngoepe be­came the first African player to ap­pear in a Ma­jor League Base­ball game. By all ac­counts, he per­formed well in his de­but. De­spite our de­press­ing po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion, Ngoepe proved that there is still a lot to be proud of.

Dur­ing his elec­tion cam­paign, Don­ald Trump said: “Imagine what we can ac­com­plish in the first 100 days of a Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion.” He’s mostly been mired in con­tro­versy, so this week he de­scribed the mile­stone as “not mean­ing­ful” and a “ridicu­lous stan­dard”. How con­ve­nient, you pussy-grab­bing bigot and misog­y­nist.
