    Lovable Baseball Lifer Don Zimmer Passes Away at 83

    You won’t find many people around Major League Baseball as universally liked and respected as Don Zimmer. There are tons of better players and many better managers, but few better people. Sadly, after gracing the game of baseball with his presence for 66 years, Zimmer passed away yesterday, June 4, at the age of 83. […]

    RoboCop Throws Out First Pitch at Detroit Tigers Game…Makes 172 Arrests (Video)

    This year we’ve already seen a number of pretty crazy ceremonial first pitches, from t-rexes, to hero cats to 101-year-old grandmas. The trend continued on Tuesday night in Detroit, where RoboCop—star of the feature film RoboCop—did the honors prior to the Tigers game against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the […]

    Marlon Byrd Somehow Managed to Break His Bat on a Swing-and-Miss (Video)

    Bats break all the time during Major League Baseball games, but not like this. It happened during yesterday afternoon’s NL East showdown between the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, as the Phils’ Marlon Byrd completely whiffed on a 1-0 pitch from Jonathon Niese, but was still somehow able to send three-quarters of his […]

    Even though Randy Johnson made an example of one to show what happens when birds interfere with professional baseball (video available at bottom of page), it seems that these dense creatures continue to have no sense of their own mortality. In last night’s Padres-Diamondbacks game, a bird nonchalantly breezed in front of a Chase Anderson pitch, unknowingly […]

    Blue Jays Win 9th Straight with a Walk-Off Bunt (Video)

    So far this year in Major League Baseball we’ve seen a walk-off replay review, a walk-off balk, and a walk-off pinch hit double from a pitcher. Now we’ve got to add walk-off bunt and throwing error to the list. Last night in Toronto, the Rays and Jays were tied 2-2 with no outs and a […]

    Twins Bros!!! (Video)

    If you thought the climate in Minnesota was too chilly for their bro population to flourish, you were wrong. Here’s proof, via these Twins bros who were in attendance at Target Field last night to watch their team lose to the Texas Rangers by a score of 1-0. Check it out: Did you catch the […]

    Danny McBride to Return To HBO in a Non-Kenny Powers Role

    Fans of crass, crass humor and beautiful curly hair will have every reason to celebrate this piece of news: Danny McBride will be taking his foul-mouthed act back to HBO, but not as washed up baseball star Kenny Powers from Eastbound & Down. Wow. That’s pretty bittersweet right there. Good news and bad. All at once. Danny […]
