The Best Men's Rain Boots to Keep You Fly and Dry

  The Best Men's Rain Boots to Keep You Fly and Dry All the weather-stomping, dry-feet-having, swaggy rain boots to buy right now.Rain boots carry an incredible amount of responsibility. Obviously, they should defend your feet from the rain (wet socks are, without a doubt, the most miserable thing we can think of). But rain boots should also keep your feet from slipping and come with a grippy outsole. Think about it: what good is all that waterproofing if you end up falling on your ass? Not only that, they should also work well through mud, slush, and perhaps even snow, answering the high calling of a winter boot. It's truly a lot to ask of one pair of shoes.

Major League Baseball is requiring players to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate in the Arizona Fall League, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. It marks the first instance of an MLB vaccination mandate directly affecting players.

Last week, Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic reported that MLB was mandating vaccinations among non-playing team personnel in order for those individuals to be granted access to the field during postseason play. That requirement did not apply to players, as any sort of vaccine mandate for MLB players would need to be agreed upon with the Players Association. MLB can and has attempted to encourage vaccinations among big leaguers by loosening health and safety protocols for teams that fully vaccinate 85% of Tier 1 personnel.

The Arizona Fall League is an annual prospect showcase that takes place after the conclusion of the standard minor league season. It is operated by MLB. Teams send a contingent of players at various minor league levels to the AFL in order to log extra playing time. The caliber of player assigned to the league is also highly variable, but it’s not uncommon to see at least a few of the league’s most promising prospects participate.

It’s possible a few players on MLB 40-man rosters will be tabbed for Fall League action. Those players are members of the MLBPA, but Piecoro notes that the Fall League is generally treated as a minor league, making a MLB vaccination mandate for players permissible. That naturally raises the question whether MLB could consider a vaccination mandate for all affiliated minor leagues next season even if the MLBPA doesn’t agree to a mandate at the big league level. There’s no indication that’s presently the league’s intent, but one executive opined to Piecoro the Fall League vaccine mandate might wind up being a precursor to similar measures for minor leaguers during next year’s Spring Training.

Bean Boots: Grab a Pair Before They Sell Out (Like They Do Every Year) .
Every guy needs a pair of sturdy boots for rain and snow. The classic L.L.Bean boot is your best (wallet-friendly) bet.Bean boots famously sell out every year and you can’t talk about why they’re in such high demand without singing their praises. The way the boots plunge into water without leaking would impress Captain Nemo. Snow is similarly no match for these beasts. Overhead Instagram shots of them are as a reliable indicator of fall as Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The way they combine tank-like indestructibility with what I like to generously describe as a funky style is the most pragmatic reason you’ll be disappointed if you wait to snap these up.
