    Undoubtedly, this post will raise more questions than it answers. Upon learning that the Royals minor league affiliate Wilmington BlueRocks are offering a Krispy Kreme hot dog, you may ask yourself things like “Does Krispy Kreme really make these buns just for the ball park?” or “How much does it cost?” or “Why do people […]

    During spring training, it’s pretty much a given that the most interesting things won’t actually be baseball-related. We’ve got 162 baseball games we’re supposed to care about.

    Watch Stephen Strasburg vs Bryce Harper For The First Time Ever (Video)

    While baseball doesn’t really ramp up for another six weeks or so, it’s time for sports shows, amidst the NBA All-Star break and a lack of football, to start rolling out the human interest stories. Most are painful, but this one is pretty cool. Down Florida way, in Port St. Lucie, Jennifer Hitchner, a local […]
