    The original Babe Ruth Red Sox contract may have only been for $5,000, but it recently went to auction for $1.02 million.

    Yasiel Puig took matters into his own hands against the rival Giants by absolutely smoking a runner at the plate with a huge throw from the outfield.

    Korean Mayor Gets Hit with an Egg after Moving Baseball Stadium (Video)

    A Korean mayor was pelted with an egg (two, actually) following a public hearing during which he moved his town’s baseball stadium. In case you’re a devil for the details, the mayor was Ahn Sang-soo, the town the stadium WAS in was Jinhae, and the new home for the complex will be Masan. I doubt those names […]
