Meet Siera Santos

Meet Siera Santos, the ‘baddie’ MLB network host labeled ‘so dang beautiful’ by adoring baseball fans

The 35-year-old host of an MLB sports show is a talent who has become a star in and out of the spotlight. Santos’s hometown is Phoenix, therefore it seems sense that she would root for Arizona teams.

Her broadcast journalism degree from Arizona State University earned her high distinction.

Siera was a reporter for NBC Sports Chicago covering the Chicago White Sox from 2015 until 2020, and subsequently an anchor for Fox 32 Chicago.

In 2020, Santos returned to her hometown of Phoenix, where she held the same positions at Fox 10 until 2021, when she was named presenter of MLB Network’s highlight show Quick Pitch. A year later, she was co-hosting MLB Network’s longest-running show, Intentional Talk, with retired MLB players Kevin Millar and Ryan Dempster.

Siera has over 61,000 Instagram followers, and she uses the platform to share personal and professional images with her audience on a regular basis.

One supporter gushed about a recent studio portrait, calling it “the best.”

As someone other put it, “Baddie energy thru the roof.”

A fourth user commented, “So dang beautiful.”

Quick Pitch and Big Inning, a fast-paced MLB.TV show, have both featured Santos.

The 35-year-old is a regular host on NHL Network’s On the Fly.

I was an MLB journeyman working an ordinary job in pizza parlor before being signed by New York Mets and becoming legend

In the 14 years between 1992 and 2006, when he was 56 years old, Todd Pratt played in the major leagues. In 1985, at the age of 18, Pratt was picked by the Boston Red Sox in the sixth round of the amateur draft.

Seven years later, he is still in the minors, having played for the affiliates of four different major – teams (the Red Sox, the Cleveland Guardians, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Philadelphia Phillies).

Pratt made his major league debut with the Phillies in 1992, at the age of 25. He appeared in 16 games.

He continued to see action on the field for the next three years, totaling 86 more appearances with the Phillies and Cubs. However, Pratt was unemployed in 1996 and decided to make ends meet in other ways. This is according to the Society for American Baseball Research.

Before becoming a shift manager at a Domino’s in South Florida, he worked as an instructor at a baseball academy.

During his time in South Florida, Pratt said, “the guy who used to feed the kids there was a young entrepreneur and owned 20 Domino’s in South Florida.” This was reported by SABR in 1999.

His company was called “20/20 Pizza,” after all. In response to his question about my future plans, I told him, “I don’t know what I’m going to do yet.”Well, he said to me, “You can’t be doing this; you’ve got to get serious about something; why don’t you come work for me?”

And it turned out that Pratt was a natural fit for this industry.

“If I had to go back to it, I could,” he remarked. “There’s nothing wrong with managing a pizza parlor.”

After a brief spell in the minors, he was back in the majors with the New York Mets the following season, ending his pizza business career.

In 1999, he hit a home run in the postseason for the first and only time in his professional career, helping propel the Mets to the National League Championship Series.

He played 276 games for the Mets from 1997 and 2001 before heading back to Philadelphia.

Pratt continued to play for the Phillies for another 222 games before retiring with the Atlanta Braves in 2006. He was 39 at the time.

From 2017 to 2019, he worked as a coach with the Miami Marlins’ minor league clubs, the Greensboro Grasshoppers and the Jupiter Hammerheads.
