    Nice Throw (GIF)

    Anyone who has played baseball has heard of the expression “eating the ball.”  It refers to a play where a fielder is better off not making a throw because he has little to no chance of getting the runner out, and therefore would be better off not risking a wild throw that would give the […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/21/11 — Justin Verlander

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/21/11 — Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander has been one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball this season.  He is currently ranked in the top three in the entire League in wins, ERA, strikeouts and innings pitched.  However, he entered last night’s game against the Minnesota Twins coming off his worst start of the season, as he allowed five […]

    Young D-Backs Fan Shows Some Class, Returns Ball To Younger Fan (Video)

    Throughout the course of the 2011 MLB season we have seen baseball fans across America show little class in their attempt to snag foul balls in the stands.  Some have dropped or crushed their children while attempting to make a catch, while others have displayed a take-no-prisoners attitude as they barrel everything and anything that […]

    Watch Ozzie Guillen Take A Ball To The Face (Video)

    Somewhere in America there is a group of umpires sitting in front of a television drinking beers and celebrating as they watch this clip of Ozzie Guillen getting hit in the face with a ball over and over again. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the eighth, a foul ball […]

  • D-Backs’ Stephen Drew Suffers A Nasty Ankle Break (Video)

    D-Backs’ Stephen Drew Suffers A Nasty Ankle Break (Video)

    It goes without saying that ankles are not supposed to bend the way Stephen Drew’s did last night. Standing on second base with one out in the bottom of the fourth inning of yesterday’s game between the Diamondbacks and the Brewers, Drew attempted to make it home on a single to left field, but during […]

    Roy Oswalt Has A Bulging What? (Video)

    With Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels playing so well, many of you may not have noticed that the fourth member of the Philadelphia Phillies “fantastic four” pitching rotation has been sidelined since June 24th.  That fourth member, Roy Oswalt, has been suffering from a bulging disk in his back, although, a slip of […]

  • Here Is Another Cirque du Soleil Opening Pitch (Video)

    Here Is Another Cirque du Soleil Opening Pitch (Video)

    Three weeks ago the San Diego Padres invited a performer from Cirque du Soleil to throw out the opening pitch prior to their game against the Kansas City Royals.  It gained plenty of coverage on both sports blogs and sports news shows, and its success caused the Tampa Bay Rays to try something similar last […]

    It Was Raining Glass In Tropicana Field Last Night (Video)

    During their franchise’s 14 years of existence, the Tampa Bay Rays have never experienced a rain delay at home.  That is largely due to the fact that they have been playing within the enclosed dome of Tropicana Field.  But while the dome may be able to prevent any rain from falling onto the field and […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Got His What Pounded?

    It looks like the people at ESPN have their heads stuck in the gutter again.  Yes, the Toronto Blue Jays did light up New York Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon to the tune of six hits and eight runs in the first inning of Thursday night’s game, but the reference to acts of aggravated sodomy seems […]

    This Is Just Awkward (Video)

    Meet Kyle. Kyle, who has his very own YouTube channel, is apparently the king of the awkward interview.  I’m not quite sure if he is actually trying to be awkward, or if he simply can’t help himself.  Whatever the case may be, he has certainly used his mumbling voice and strange demeanor to build quite […]

    It Was 80s Night At The Skydome Last Night (Pics)

    The 80s and early 90s were certainly a good time to be a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Not only did the team finish with a record above .500 in every season from 1983 to 1993, but they also made the playoffs five times between 1985 and 1993, and won back-to-back World Series Championships […]
