    Torii Hunter Flips Out on Called Strikes, Gets Tossed (Video)

    Lesson to Torii Hunter: If you’re going to argue over called strikes, make sure that you’re right in your argument. The Minnesota Twins star was taking an at-bat against Kansas City when he argued over two successive pitches called as strikes. The first one he thought was too high (it was RIGHT down the middle), […]

  • Giants’ Chris Heston Throws First No-Hitter of 2015 (Video)

    Giants’ Chris Heston Throws First No-Hitter of 2015 (Video)

    The San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Heston became the first Major League pitcher in 2015 to throw a no-hitter on Tuesday.  And he did so in a rather strange fashion, striking out 11 and walking none, but failing to achieve a perfect game thanks to three hit batters. Heston’s achievement came during San Francisco’s 5-0 victory […]

    Barehanded Line Drive Caught on Weirdo Fan’s GoPro (Video)

    If you were at the Biloxi Shuckers game on June 7th (AND WHY WEREN’T YOU?), you may have seen some strange soul with a GoPro strapped to his head, sitting around, doing nothing in particular. Turns out the oddball with the camera attached to his head had the last laugh, as he ended up getting […]

  • Dansby Swanson Celebrates Being MLB’s #1 Pick with Vandy Teammates (Video)

    Dansby Swanson Celebrates Being MLB’s #1 Pick with Vandy Teammates (Video)

    A lot isn’t made of the MLB draft. That’s probably because virtually no college players are prepared to go straight into the Major Leagues, so getting picked is pretty much just a graduation to minor league ball with a big signing bonus. But that didn’t keep Vanderbilt shortstop Dansby Swanson from celebrating pretty hard with his […]

    Billy Hamilton Steals Second, Third, then Home…Because He Can (Video)

    Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton came to the Major Leagues with some pretty high expectations. The kid stole 155 bases in the minors in 2012, breaking Vince Coleman‘s Minor League record by 10 and eclipsing Rickey Henderson‘s Major League record by 25. Unfortunately, his rookie season in 2014 was a little bit of a […]

    A-Rod, Still in Damage Control-Mode, Takes a Pic with Fans (Tweet)

    Like a lame duck president, A-Rod realizes that at this stage in his career, with the Yankees, he’s mostly playing to solidify his legacy, rather than achieve any more. And considering his legacy is an unholy mess of lies and vitriol, he’s got some work to do. However, he’s done a decent job this season […]

    Chris Christie In a Baseball Uniform is Like Looking Into The Sun (Pics)

    If you were having yourself a good Thursday, prepare to have it ruined by these frightening images of New Jersey governor Chris Christie in a baseball uniform. The photos come from last night’s True Blue celebrity softball game, which was hosted by Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton with the intention of raising money for the […]

    Brewers Hector Gomez Goes Flying Face-First Into The Stands (Video)

    Hector Gomez didn’t come away with a catch when he dove into the stands face-first in an attempt to snag a pop-fly in foul territory during Wednesday’s game against the Cardinals.  That’s the bad news. The good news is he also didn’t come away with a concussion or any other type of serious injury, which is rather […]

    Indians Bullpen Takes Brandon Moss 100th Home Run Ball For Ransom

    Last night, Cleveland Indians outfielder Brandon Moss hit the 100th home run of his career during a 2-1 road victory against the Kansas City Royals.  Being such a significant milestone in the 31-year-old’s career, you’d think Moss would want to keep that ball as a memento. And he does!  Only problem is he’s going to have […]
