  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/6/11 — David Murphy

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/6/11 — David Murphy

    David Murphy may wear the number seven on the back of his jersey, but four was clearly his lucky number during last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Texas Rangers’ right fielder stepped to the plate four times during the game, recording four hits on the night along with four RBIs.   Among […]

    The Phillie Phanatic Makes It Rain…Hot Dogs (Video)

    Treacherous rains were sweeping across areas in Indiana, Michigan and other parts of the United States over the weekend.  It was raining in Philadelphia as well, but rather than having water drops fall from the sky, as is typically the case when it rains, fans at Citizens Bank Park found themselves caught under a storm […]

  • Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

    Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

    David Ortiz isn’t exactly a threat on the base path.  One look at his 11 career stolen bases in 15 seasons makes that quite evident.  However, you would think the 6’4″, 230-pound designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox would have at least learned how to properly slide into second base at some point in […]

  • The Midges Are Back In Cleveland (Video)

    The Midges Are Back In Cleveland (Video)

    The last time we saw the midges in Cleveland take over an Indians game was back in 2007 during Game 2 of the American League Division Series, as they terrorized Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain just enough to cause him to allow the game-tying run in the eighth inning. The midges returned to Progressive Field last […]

  • Brian Wilson’s Beard Breaks Bats (Video)

    Brian Wilson’s Beard Breaks Bats (Video)

    We were all warned to “fear the beard” as San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson displayed the power behind that thick batch of black hair growing from his neck during the Giants’ run to the World Series title last season.  During last night’s game against the Chicago Cubs, he put the power of the beard […]

  • Lady Takes A Foul Ball To The Face (Video)

    Lady Takes A Foul Ball To The Face (Video)

    I may go to hell someday for laughing at this (I’m not worried, as I’ve always enjoyed hot weather), but in my opinion there simply aren’t many things funnier than watching someone take a ball to the face in slow motion. Now before you begin to curse my name and label me as a cruel […]

  • Pirates Turn Triple Play, Only Need Two Outs (Video)

    Pirates Turn Triple Play, Only Need Two Outs (Video)

    I guess sometimes you can never be too sure.  Take the Pittsburgh Pirates, for example, who needed only two more outs during the bottom of the eighth inning during last night’s game against the Houston Astros, but they decided to get three, just to be safe. Although the Pirates defense may have showed a great […]

  • Monkey See, Monkey Do (Video)

    Monkey See, Monkey Do (Video)

    It is bad enough that some baseball fans want to dress up like their favorite MLB players during games.  Do they really need to be mimicking their every move as well? One lady was doing just that prior to Saturday’s game between the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees, as she copied every stretch […]

  • BBoy McCoy, The Breakdancing Batboy (Video)

    BBoy McCoy, The Breakdancing Batboy (Video)

    Even the most devout baseball fans will admit that sometimes—when they’re changing pitchers every five minutes; when batters call time and step out of the batters’ box to adjust their batting gloves after every pitch; when the catcher walks out to discuss his signs with a pitcher—a ballgame can be a little tedious. Most of […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/24/11 – Alex Avila

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/24/11 – Alex Avila

    This is not your typical state line of the night. Detroit Tigers’ catcher Alex Avila was only 1-4 last night. So, you’re probably wondering, why does he belong here? It’s because he’s a catcher and his one hit went approximately 420 feet from home plate into the seats (after traveling to the moon). Further, while […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/23/11 – Brandon Allen

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/23/11 – Brandon Allen

    The Oakland Athletics’ recently acquired first baseman Brandon Allen averaged about 20 home runs during his minor league days and he hit two tape-measure home runs last night at Yankee Stadium that have A’s fans excited about the 25-year-old’s potential. Allen’s two moon shots were epic. His first home run made it up into the […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Which Came First, The T-Shirt Or The Mullet?

    Picture Of The Day: Which Came First, The T-Shirt Or The Mullet?

    Now that’s what I call dedication to a gag. This guy either bought this Randy Johnson “Hair-itage” Seattle Mariners t-shirt and then grew a matching mullet and mustache, or he already had the mullet and stache and bought the matching shirt when he happened upon it. Either way, this dude is kick-ass. I’ve also gotta […]

  • One Game, Two Amazing Catches By Two Different Kids (Video)

    One Game, Two Amazing Catches By Two Different Kids (Video)

    Apparently it was “Take Your Little League All-Star to the Ballpark” night at Turner Field yesterday. During the San Francisco Giants’ 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves, there was not one but two spectacular foul ball catches made by kids. The first came in the bottom of the first off the bat of Braves first […]
