    Livan Hernandez Heckles Ball Boy, Showers Him With Seeds (Video)

    Major League baseball players are often on the receiving end of the heckling, whether it is the result of a blown catch, a wild pitch, or a base-running blunder.  After playing 15 seasons in the Majors, Atlanta Braves reliever Livan Hernandez has probably been on the receiving end of his fair share of heckling, but […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 5/17/12 — Brandon Beachy

    The Atlanta Braves organization has developed some great pitchers throughout the past couple of decades.  Among them are the likes of John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Tommy Hanson.  And now it is beginning to appear as though it won’t be long before we add Brandon Beachy’s name to that list. After going 7-3 […]

    9 Most Epic Collapses In MLB History

    If you’re a baseball fan, then you are probably aware that the Boston Red Sox are hanging on for dear life in the American League Wild Card standings. On September 1, Boston was 8 ½ games ahead of Tampa Bay. Today, their lead over the Rays is just 1 lousy game. But Boston is not […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/20/11 — Tim Hudson

    The Atlanta Braves entered last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays looking to record back-to-back wins at home for the first time since May 29.  Pitcher Tim Hudson did all that he could on the mound to get his team that elusive victory, but he didn’t receive much help from the rest of the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/13/11 — Hunter Pence

    Having lost eight of their last nine games heading into yesterday’s finale of their four-game series with the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros have been one of the coldest teams in baseball.  Oddly enough, they also currently have one of the hottest hitters in baseball in their line-up.  That would be right fielder Hunter Pence, […]

  • Female Fans Fight During Brewers Game (Video)

    Female Fans Fight During Brewers Game (Video)

    Why do I feel as though at some point this week I went to bed and woke up in Bizarro World?  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that in the last 48 hours I have witnessed two males kissing in the stands at a Cleveland Indians game, and several females fighting one […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/5/11 — Yovani Gallardo

    With a batting order that includes the likes of Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks, the Brewers entered the 2011 season with high expectations, but have failed to live up to them through their first four games.  Heading into yesterday’s meeting with the Atlanta Braves, they were looking to bounce back and […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Saved The Day, And His Beer

    It was supposed to be an enjoyable day at the ballpark for these fans last Friday, but things nearly took a turn for the worse when Dan Uggla’s bat went flying into the stands during a spring training game in Kissimmee, Florida against the Toronto Blue Jays. Thankfully, the guy in the Gators t-shirt was […]

    Celebrating Bobby Cox’s Retirement With A Giant Corn Field Maze

    When Atlanta Braves Manager Bobby Cox announced that this would be his final year as a bench-boss in the MLB, many of those who knew and loved the 69-year-old legend began to think of ways to honor his storied career and thank him for a job well done. First there was that embarrassing spelling mistake […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/14/10 — Derek Lowe

    On the morning after a Monday night, the obvious place to look for a great stat line are the football games, right?  Not last night, as both games did not produce any spectacular performances (outside of the defenses, which did step up big).  In baseball, however, the Atlanta Braves got a much needed win on […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/22/10 – Jason Heyward

    Yesterday marked the end of an era in baseb, all, as long-time manager Lou Piniella managed his last game in baseball.  He had announced that he would retire after the season, but in the days leading up to Sunday’s game he decided to call it quits sooner.  He was a great manager for many years, […]
