  • Just a Drunk Reds Fan Passed Out at the Ball Game (Video)

    Just a Drunk Reds Fan Passed Out at the Ball Game (Video)

    There are two things in the world that are capable of putting grown men to bed like nothing else:  baseball and beer. So what happens when you combine the two?  You’ll find the answer to that question in the video below, as this Cincinnati Reds fan punched a one-way ticket to Dream Land after drinking […]

    Check Out this Amazing Color Footage of the 1939 World Series (Video)

    People generally assume that, since most of the movies and photographs we have from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s are in black and white, color photography wasn’t even around. But that’s not true. Technicolor (for movies) was invented all the way back in 1916 and radically improved in 1929, and Kodachrome (for photographs) was invented […]

    Giants Fan Gets Smacked In The Face By Rogue Napkin (Video)

    At ballparks across America fans are warned to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.”  Typically, those signs are referring to bats and balls that make their way into the stands, but on a windy day in San Francisco, that warning sign should have also included napkins, as an unsuspecting fan was smacked […]

  • Streaker Runs Wild At Busch Stadium Last Night (Video)

    Streaker Runs Wild At Busch Stadium Last Night (Video)

    After hibernating during the winter, the streakers have been coming out of the woodwork throughout the first two months of the 2012 MLB season, as yet another one made an appearance last night at Busch Stadium during a game between the Phillies and the Cardinals. Unfortunately, umpire Jeff Kellogg wasn’t around to make the tackle […]

  • Reds Fan Catches Back-To-Back Home Run Balls (Video)

    Reds Fan Catches Back-To-Back Home Run Balls (Video)

    Texas Rangers fan Trent Williams was able to catch a total of seven home run balls during the 2011 MLB season.  That may sound like an impressive feat, but it pales in comparison to what Cincinnati Reds fan Caleb Lloyd did during last night’s game against the Atlanta Braves at the Great American Ballpark. With […]

  • This Day In Sports History (May 18th) – Randy Johnson

    This Day In Sports History (May 18th) – Randy Johnson

    It was on this day in 2004 that Randy Johnson became the 17th player in MLB history to pitch a perfect game.  At age 40, Johnson became the oldest player to accomplish the feat. Randy Johnson would strikeout 13 Atlanta Braves batters en route to his perfect game, which took place at Atlanta’s Turner Field.  […]

    Baserunner Pulls Some Parkour-Like Moves In Walk-Off Steal (Video)

    For our purposes (and because the video doesn’t specify), the team is unimportant, the locale is unimportant, and the players are unimportant. Let this video simply embody the spirit of sportsmanship and competition as the Greeks celebrated them. (Again, we’re really sorry we don’t have more context for this video. Oh well.) Walk off steals […]

  • 11 Classy Baseball Wives of the 50s and 60s

    11 Classy Baseball Wives of the 50s and 60s

    It’s always seemed to me that baseball wives of the 1950s and 60s, in addition to being beautiful, were so classy and dignified when compared to the baseball wives of today. But I kind of figured this was probably a false perception—chalk it up to black and white still photography and the mystique of “the […]

    Check Out This Little League Umpire’s Awesome Punchout Move (Video)

    Umpires have a tough, thankless job. They have to stay completely focused on every pitch while wearing 30 pounds of cumbersome padding, dealing with hecklers in the stands (and dugouts), and getting hit in the nuts by wild pitches. When they do their job poorly, they hear about it from everyone. But when they do […]

    Is This The Worst Ceremonial First Pitch Ever? (Video)

    Everyone knows a ceremonial first pitch is usually just an excuse for a team to show off for its fans (“hey, look, we know famous people!”). But unless it’s a cute kid, a dude with no arms, or a T-Rex, we still want to see the person doing the honors actually get it in the […]
