    Lil’ Jon Threw Out a Terrible First Pitch at Petco Park (Video)

    Lil’ Jon left our lives for a while, but came roaring back with last summer’s anthem “Turn Down for What?” As great as that song was (and it WAS great) it didn’t make him any better at baseball. The producer/rapper made an appearance at Petco Park in San Diego to throw out a first pitch […]

  • Dee Gordon Shows His Wheels with an Inside the Park HR (Video)

    Dee Gordon Shows His Wheels with an Inside the Park HR (Video)

    Normally, it takes a well-hit ball and a pretty monumental screw-up to tally an inside-the-park home run. However, Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins is so fast that it only takes a well-hit ball and a MEDIUM-SIZED screwup for him to get a four-bagger. Yup, the Giants outfielders seemed to need a second pass on […]

    A Swarm of Seagulls Descended Upon Oakland Coliseum (Video)

    The Oakland A’s trounced the Rockies last night 7-1, but the circumstances of their victory is far more interesting than just another lopsided regular season baseball game. A swarm (flock?) of seagulls invaded Oakland Coliseum and… …didn’t really do anything. Needless to say, it was pretty much the most exciting part of the game. They […]

  • Fan Runs Onto Field, Throws Pitch at Angels-Mariners Game (Video)

    Fan Runs Onto Field, Throws Pitch at Angels-Mariners Game (Video)

    Okay, so maybe this fan didn’t actually throw a pitch, but he did mimic one after making his way onto the field during Sunday’s game between the Mariners and Angels at Angel Stadium. Have a look: A ball would have helped, but it was still a lot better than 50 Cent’s first pitch.  And the […]

  • Yankees D Gives Up Ridiculous Inside-the-Park Homer (Video)

    Yankees D Gives Up Ridiculous Inside-the-Park Homer (Video)

    Sometimes home runs are achieved through brute force. Sometimes, but less often, it’s blinding speed that gets you around the bases in one go. In this clip from Sunday’s Yankees-Astros game, it’s just bad defense that allows Astros prospect Carlos Correa to take what should have been a deep pop-out and turn it into a four-bagger. The […]

    Good God What Is Orbit the Houston Astros Mascot Doing? (GIF)

    So it turns out there are at least two different costumes for Orbit, the Houston Astros mascot. There’s the costume for regular Orbit, a bi-ped baseball-loving alien. Then there’s an Orbit-riding-an-ostrich costume, in which the guy in the suit puts his legs in the ostrich legs while Orbit’s legs dangle off the ostrich’s shoulders. Why […]

    Bob Costas Lays a Sick, Sick Burn on Pedro Strop (Video)

    When we think of Bob Costas, we think of an idealistic Cardinals fan or the guy that hosted the nightly Olympics show with his eye hanging out of his face. However, we were treated to a new, vindictive side to the multi-sport announcer as he called the Cubs-Cardinals game on Friday. During the contest, Cubs pitcher […]

    C.C. Sabathia Doesn’t Like When You Throw at His Teammates (Video)

    While A-Rod may get a bum rap among both press and fans, he should take comfort in knowing that at least someone has his back. And that someone is giant Yanks pitcher C.C. Sabathia. On Saturday, A-Rod was catching a little heat from Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer, and C.C. Sabathia was the first guy out […]

    Josh Donaldson Dives Into Stands to Save Perfect Game (Video)

    For his second consecutive start, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada took a no-hitter into the eighth inning.  And Estrada was actually pitching a perfect game during today’s no-hit bid against the Tampa Bay Rays.   But with a full count to the Rays’ David DeJesus during the first at bat in the bottom of the eighth, Estrada was […]
