  • MLB Players Assn. registered no complaint that I could find, such as logical fear that players could easily die in a country with lax building standards.

5/11: "The 2011 All-Star Game sign painted on the (Arizona Diamondbacks) left field wall disappeared before this homestand and was replaced by an ad for Dial soap. (Owner Derrick)Hall said he received several e-mails from panicking fans assuming the worst, but he said there's no reason to worry.
