The major league baseball’s seams are smaller than those used throughout the minors, the leather is of a better quality and it was, Allen surmised, going to affect at least some of his stuff. The fact that both Triple-A circuits were going to use MLB baseballs in 2019 only complicated Allen’s conundrum after he realized it was his split change-up that was impacted most. “I knew I was going to have to make an adjustment,” Allen said. “I just had a hard time figuring out what that adjustment was going to be.”Allen searched high and low in bullpens between starts, before and after he was assigned to Triple-A El Paso following a shaky finish in big league champ.

To replace tenements and boarded-up buildings, he proposed restaurants, shops and an arts walk rivaling San Antonio’s River Walk. Representative Beto O’Rourke, one of hundreds attending, wasn’t exactly a disinterested party.
