    Jose Bautista Has His Very Own Music Video

    After recording 54 home runs during the 2010 MLB season, many baseball critics figured Jose Bautista would be nothing more than a one-year wonder.  That hasn’t been the case as the Toronto Blue Jays’ outfielder is currently leading the Majors in home runs (28), on-base percentage (.467) and slugging percentage (.687), while his .331 batting […]

    Giants Fan Gets Run Over By Kayak In McCovey Cove (Video)

    The baseball souvenir free-for-all continues! But unlike what we have seen in previous weeks, this time the battle did not take place on the dry lands of the stadium bleachers.  Instead, it occurred beyond the outfield fence at AT&T Park, on the wet waters of McCovey Cove. Following a Pablo Sandoval blast, two kayakers squared […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most Major League pitchers will not record three complete-game shutouts throughout the course of an entire season.  Cliff Lee had the opportunity to throw his third in a row last night when he took the mound against the Boston Red Sox.  Accomplishing such a feat is no easy task against the league’s most potent offense, […]

    Here Is 4 Minutes Of Jose Canseco Snapping On An Umpire (Video)

    It may have been about ten years since Jose Canseco last swung a bat in the Majors, but that clearly hasn’t stopped him from making headlines in the world of sports.  In fact, some might even argue that Canseco has made more headlines away from the game than he did during his 16 year MLB […]

    Cirque du Soliel Performer Throws Out Opening Pitch (Video)

    When an opening pitch earns a spot on the nightly highlight package, nine times out of ten it is for all the wrong reasons.  But when we are treated to that other one-out-of-ten, it can be quite remarkable.  Take last night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, […]

    One-Armed Veteran Catches Foul Ball With His Hat (Video)

    Had a person with two arms made the following catch, it wouldn’t have even been mentioned during the live broadcast of Friday’s game between the Colorado Rockies and the New York Yankees.  So should we be impressed by the fact that the man who did make the grab has only one arm?  Yes, we should.  […]

    Picture Of The Day: How Japan Celebrate Baseball Victories

    I have never been a big fan of fireworks.  Just a bunch of over-priced sparkles flying into the air, making a bunch of noise, then disappearing while leaving behind an terrible odor.  Seems like a rather dumb way to celebrate a home run or a victory for any Major League Baseball team. Japanese baseball, on […]

    Sometimes I just don’t get baseball fans.  I mean, sure, everyone wants to catch Barry Bonds’ 756th career home run ball, or his 71st home run ball from the 2001 season.  That’s understandable, seeing as how you can flip that thing for thousands of dollars on eBay.  But what is the big deal about catching […]

    Philly Phanatic Grinds It Out With A Heffer (Video)

    Sure, the Philly Phanatic might be fat, green and hairy, but he can do better than this, can’t he?  After all, the thing(?) is an icon in Philadelphia.  You would think it could get all the big-chested blondes it wanted.  I guess it only prefers those that look similar to its own kind. I wonder […]

    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, […]

    Texas Rangers Draft Paralyzed Georgia Bulldogs Player

    Johnathan Taylor’s promising baseball career appeared to have come to an end on March 6th when he collided with fellow outfielder and close friend Zach Cone during a game against Florida State.  Taylor suffered a broken neck on the play and was paralyzed front he waist down, but he is currently completing rehab at the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/7/11 — Carlos Carrasco

    Much of the Cleveland Indians success this season has been the result of some great offense, but with their bats quieting down during a five-game losing streak, it was the pitching of starter Carlos Carassco that helped them break out of their recent slump. Carassco was dominant during last night’s game against the Minnesota Twins, […]

    Royals Fan Catches Foul Ball With Popcorn Bucket (Video)

    I spent most of last night taking in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins, but whenever I was afforded the opportunity, I couldn’t help but check in to see how my Toronto Blue Jays were doing against the Kansas City Royals.  With the Jays losing the […]
