TORONTO - With spring training just over a month away, many big-league baseball players are starting to get back into their workout routines in preparation for the 2015 season. Justin Houston Jersey .For Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, the pre-season plan is a little different. The veteran right-hander has to give his nails extra attention since theyre critical for his unique pitch.I just kind of let them go in the winter, Dickey said Friday. And then when it comes time for like around late January, I start treating them with some product and making sure that theyre filed right, and the nail hardener is on there, things like that.Dickey was joined by teammates Jose Bautista, Aaron Loup, Todd Redmond and Dalton Pompey for a media availability at Rogers Centre to kick off the Blue Jays Winter Tour. The tour will include stops in Calgary, Banff and Vancouver next week. A chipped or broken nail can significantly hamper Dickeys ability to throw the unique pitch, which can float, dive and flutter en route to the plate. The over-the-counter hardener is used so the nails can withstand the rigours of a full season.Dickey tries to keep his nails at a consistent length and also has to be mindful of tasks that other players wouldnt be concerned about — like making sure a nail doesnt crack while hes doing up a zipper, for example.He doesnt go into nail salons unless theres an emergency.I do my own stuff, Dickey said in a recent interview at a different promotional event. Im probably the only major leaguer out there that could go on the disabled list for a broken nail.I dont trust many people with my nails. I do it all on my own.To throw the pitch, Dickey puts his index and middle fingers just behind the horseshoe-like seam on the ball. He digs his nails in on top and supports the bottom of the ball with his thumb on one side and fourth finger on the other.The thumb must stay off the seam to prevent the ball from spinning. Dickey then winds up and bends his wrist at an almost 90-degree angle before essentially pushing the ball out.With no spin, the ball floats toward the plate, often handcuffing batters with its slower speed and directional changes.Knuckleballers are quite rare as it can take a long time for a pitcher to master it. Dickey, 40, started out as a conventional pitcher but found the most success as a knuckler later in his career.So is it a fun pitch to throw?It can be. It can also be maddening, he said. When its going good, theres not anything better in the world. But when its going bad, it can be really ugly.Dickey won the National League Cy Young Award with the New York Mets in 2012 and joined the Blue Jays the following year. Hell be counted on to help anchor Torontos starting rotation again in 2015.Dickey reached the 200-inning plateau for the fourth straight season last year, finishing with a 14-13 mark and 3.71 earned-run average.Spring training begins next month and the Blue Jays will kick off the regular season April 6 in New York.———Follow @GregoryStrongCP on Twitter. Christian Okoye Jersey . Alvarez hit his first career home run, pitched six innings and hurt his right hamstring while running the bases in the Miami Marlins 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. Tamba Hali Jersey . The Arena das Dunas in the northeastern city of Natal sustained minor damage during the protests, but demonstrators stayed away on Sunday and officials said the stadium passed its first test, with only minor adjustments needed going forward. http://www.prochiefsauthentic.com/Youth-Patrick-Mahomes-II-Elite-Jersey/ . James Jones got his turn Sunday. And the lift he brought, combined with the expected playoff showings from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, have the Heat off and running in these playoffs.EDMONTON - Albertas top court has dismissed an appeal by a man convicted in the sex slaying of a Edmonton teenager on a golf course.Michael Briscoe is serving a life sentence for sexual assault, kidnapping and first-degree murder in the death of 13-year-old Nina Courtepatte in 2005.A group of people lured the girl from West Edmonton Mall to the golf course, where she was raped, stabbed and beaten to death.Briscoe was initially acquitted of the charges after testifying that he did not know of the murder plan and his only involvement was to drive the car.The Crown won an appeal and Briscoe was convicted following a second trial in 2012.The trial judge ruled that Briscoe did not directly commit the acts, but assisted another man, Joseph Laboucan, in the crime.The Alberta Court of Appeal unanimously agreed in its latest decision that Briscoe has no valid grounds for appeal.Justice Clifton OBrien wrote that Briscoes rights were breached when Mounties asked him to give a DNNA sample without his being given the opportunity to obtain the advice of a lawyer. Cairo Santos Jersey. But the judge said that mistake wasnt profound and noted that officers had already pointed out Briscoes right to speak with a lawyer, but he didnt want to.OBrien added that societys interest in having the case go to court weighed heavily in favour of admission of the evidence.Here a child was lured to an isolated place by a group of people, that included the appellant, to be sexually assaulted and murdered. Society has a substantial interest in finding and punishing those responsible, he wrote.Along with Laboucan, three other young people were also convicted in Ninas death.Laboucan was further found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Ellie-May Meyer. The prostitute, who was killed two days before Courtepatte, was found in a farmers field east of Edmonton and police connected the two killings. Briscoe was also charged in Meyers death but acquitted. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
