Image of the Day: Record One-Year Income Rise in 2019

From the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income rose by 6.8% in 2019 - a record one-year increase - to a record high of $68,700.  Notably, under the supposed racist President Donald Trump, those 2019 income gains were largest for minority groups.  And since 2016, median income has risen 9.7%, which is fantastic news for Americans, even if it might be bad news for leftists in their disinformation campaign:

A former baseball player lost his suit against the New York Yankees and now is suing the Cincinnati Reds and a North Carolina training complex.

Garrison Lassiter, a baseball prospect who reportedly never played above High-A ball, sued the Yankees for $34 million, claiming Yankees' legend Derek Jeter derailed his baseball career because he was afraid of the competition. Lassiter alleged that it was “blantanly (sic) obvious” that Jeter controlled the Yankees organization, and he insisted Yankees employees libeled and slandered him to other teams, preventing him from reaching the major leagues. Lassiter's lawsuit, alleging conspiracy between the Yankees and Jeter, was dismissed.

“I cannot get on the field due to the New York Yankees trying to control my career,” he wrote in all caps to several major league teams, looking for deals that never came. “I’m the only Baseball Player that will stand up to the New York Yankees,” he added in the final page of the legal document.

Having lost that suit, Lassiter is now suing the Cincinnati Reds for $1.635 million. In a separate lawsuit, he is also suing Proehlific Park, a North Carolina training complex owned by former NFL wide receiver and Hillsborough, N.J. native Ricky Proehl. Lassiter had signed with the New York Yankees rather than pursue a college football career but now says Proehl’s facility failed to get him an NFL tryout.

According to news reports, Lassiter’s best season arguably was in 2011, when he hit .274 with a home run and 23 RBI in 64 games. After the Yankees released him the next year, he redshirted at quarterback for the University of Miami, never appearing in a game.

“Offensively, he was OK,” said Aaron Ledesma, who managed Lassiter at Low-A Charleston in 2011. “He was below average. Not much power, didn’t really hit for a high average. Speed-wise, he was below average.”

Lassiter, who put himself through law school, is acting as his own attorney.
