    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 […]

    Amazing Batting Practice Called ‘Skeet Ball’ (Video)

    Seeing is believing? That depends. These days, big advertising agencies have caught on the to power of “going viral.” Some of them have just tried to make traditional commercials that are so funny people will forward them around to friends. However, the best ad agencies have realized that it’s even more effective to make commercials […]

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/22/11 – Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee is quietly putting together a season better than the one he had in 2008 when he won the Cy Young Award. The only reason it’s relatively quiet is because he’s pitching on a staff full of Cy Young candidates, who are arguably having better seasons than Lee. Yes, the Philadelphia Phillies’ staff is […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/21/11 — Albert Pujols

    With the official “best player in baseball” set to become a free agent at the end of the 2011 season, people started to worry when Albert Pujols got off to an excruciatingly slow start back in April and May. More recently, however, the Cardinals first baseman has started to look more like himself. Last night […]

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/17/11 – David Price

    Despite being 10 games above .500, the Rays entered Wednesday’s game with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park trailing the Red Sox and Yankees for the East title and Wild Card spot by 9.5 games. Most baseball pundits would say that the Rays are dead in the water, with no shot at either playoff […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 8/16/11 – Justin Verlander

    Yesterday, it was Jim Thome gracing ‘The Stat Line Of The Night.’ Today, it’s one of his favorite pitchers, Justin Verlander (Thome has seven home runs off of Verlander in his career, the third most he’s hit off of any pitcher). Verlander bolstered his Cy Young resume last night against Thome’s squad by throwing 7.2 […]

  • The Brewers Turned A Triple Play Last Night (Video)

    The Brewers Turned A Triple Play Last Night (Video)

    Things have certainly been going the Milwaukee Brewers’ way as of late.  If their four-game winning streak or their 17 wins in their last 19 games didn’t already make that obvious, their triple play during last night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers did. With James Looney at the plate, and runners on first and […]

    13 Most Awesome Old-School Sports Video Games

    The other day, as I was negotiating a trade between the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals in the franchise mode of MLB 11 The Show for PlayStation 3, I made a very obvious realization: sports video games sure have come a long, long way. There I was in 2011, tending to every minute […]

    America’s crazy obsession for meaningless foul balls at Major League Baseball games continues! The latest development in this ongoing saga took place a few days ago during a game between the Texas Rangers and the Minnesota Twins, as a woman barreled over her male counterpart while the two of them battled for a foul ball […]

    This Day In Sports History (July 28th) – Dennis Martinez

    It was on this day in 1991 that Dennis Martinez of the Montreal Expos threw the 13th perfect game in Major League history.  Martinez accomplished the feat on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers, as the Expos won the game 2-0. Dennis Martinez became the first Latin American pitcher to ever throw a perfect […]

    Fan Loses It After Pete Rose Refuses To Sign His Ball (Video)

    Pete Rose was in Cooperstown (despite the fact that he is still not in the Hall of Fame) dining at a local restaurant when a man attempted to get the all-time hits leader to sign his baseball.  Unfortunately, the man didn’t get what he was looking for (Rose politely refused) and proceeded to act like […]

    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 […]
