  • Vuvuzelas Not Welcome In Yankee Stadium

    Vuvuzelas Not Welcome In Yankee Stadium

    They couldn’t silence the sounds of the obnoxious vuvuzelas within South African stadiums, but at Yankee Stadium they were able to kill the buzz before it could even begin. Earlier this year, 27-year-old Anthony Zachariadis bought several vuvuzelas for a reasonable price of $6 each on a soccer website.  His initial intention was to use […]

    Picture Of The Day: Cubs Fans And Their Matching Tattoos

    You would think that getting the words “sweet” and “dude” tattooed on your back is so stupid that the only place you would see such stupidity is in a stupid movie like Dude, Where’s My Car.  Well it appears as though there is one place on earth where you can expect a similar level of […]

  • Pete Rose’s Corked Bat?

    Pete Rose’s Corked Bat?

    Is this an x-ray of a corked bat once used by the great Pete Rose? According to Deadspin it is “a Mizuno PR4192 bat, commissioned by Pete Rose specifically for his 1985 chase of baseball’s all-time hits record.” As you know, corking your bat in baseball is highly illegal, per rule 6.06(d), so this could […]

  • Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    The list of jerks throughout pro sports is a lengthy one, and too often we read about them instead of the good guys in sports. But today we have a nice story about one of baseball’s nice guys, slugging St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols. Pujols recently hit his 14th homerun of the season […]

  • Young Phillies Fan Takes A Big Gulp Of Beer

    Young Phillies Fan Takes A Big Gulp Of Beer

    When it comes to Phillies fans at Citizens Bank Park, there appears to be a few unwritten rules:  You are never too old to fight, too fast to be tasered, too busy for a lap dance, or too young to have a beer.  It must have been another hot summer day, but at least this […]

  • Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Catch balls that are ruled foul and steer clear of those called in-play.  Sounds simple, but life as a ball boy is not always as easy as it seems.  One wrong move and you can have everyone against you, including umpires, police officers, and mascots.  That was the case for one ball boy this weekend […]

    Ever Wonder What The Iron Sheik Thinks Of Jim Joyce? (Video)

    While many in the baseball community seem to have forgiven MLB umpire Jim Joyce after his blown call in the ninth inning on Wednesday cost Tigers’ pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game, it does not appear as though the Iron Sheik will be showing any love for Joyce anytime soon. The former WWE (or WWF […]

  • Umpire Jim Joyce Robs Armando Galarraga Of A Perfect Game

    Umpire Jim Joyce Robs Armando Galarraga Of A Perfect Game

    We have already given him The Stat Line of the Night, but the Major League record books will forever be absent of one particularly worthy name, all because an umpire couldn’t get it right. It was the top of the ninth in a game between the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, and […]

    Is This The Type Of Burial Jose Lima Deserved? (Video)

    Much like his wife, Jose Lima was adored by many during his time here on Earth.  And when he passed away unexpectedly of a heart attack last week at the age of 37, many individuals within the baseball and sporting community felt as though they had lost a close friend. As for those in the […]

    Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    It’s pretty funny to see a dog look himself, long and hard, in the mirror and then tilt his head to the side because he’s not sure if it’s him or another dog, whose heiny he should be sniffing.  Well, it’s about ten times funnier seeing a confused left fielder looking into the outfield wall […]

    Wheel Him Outta Here! (Video)

    I can’t help but think that this may be just about the greatest exit from a baseball game ever.  Forget about all those guys who want to throw beer and punches at one another before having security take them by the arm and usher them out.  This guy knows how to exit a party in […]

    Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    After 27 years of calling the Metrodome their home, the Minnesota Twins had undergone a makeover heading into the 2010 MLB season.  Not only do they have themselves a new ballpark, the outdoor confines of the Target Center, but they also have a new ballpark menu. One of the featured new additions to that menu […]

    Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Should we consider this to be just another case of “When Mascots Attack”? In a rather ironic twist of fate, Tampa Bay Rays’ second baseman Sean Rodriguez was taking a stroll down the beach when he was stung by an actual stingray.  Rodriguez was with his two-year-old daughter, Sofia, behind their rental condo in Redington […]
