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

    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

    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 […]

    D-Backs Fan Wrestles Foul Ball From A Lovely Blond (Video)

    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

    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

    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)

    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 […]

  • Watch Bryce Harper Hit A Home Run And Blow A Kiss To The Pitcher (Video)

    Watch Bryce Harper Hit A Home Run And Blow A Kiss To The Pitcher (Video)

    Baseball fans everywhere are patiently waiting for Washington Nationals prospect Bryce Harper to make his MLB debut, but it appears as though the highly-touted 18-year-old is still having fun terrorizing minor league pitchers throughout America. He continued his assault on Class-A pitchers last night when he sent a pitch soaring over the outfield fence.  As […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/6/11 — Brennan Boesch

    Two of the hottest teams in the Majors hooked up last night in Texas as the Rangers hosted the streaking Detroit Tigers.  With the Cleveland Indians slumping as of late, the Tigers have managed to climb right back into the hunt for top spot in the AL Central, and they gained some more ground last […]

    Jose Bautista Is An MLB Slugger By Day, Mafia Hitman By Night (Video)

    Most of us know Jose Bautista as the right fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays and the current MLB home runs leader.  But what most of us don’t know is that by night, Bautista trades in that life for the life of “Joey Bats.”  Bautista and “Joey Bats” may seem like two completely different people, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/2/11 — Aubrey Huff

    I know that hitting three home runs in a single game is not an easy thing to do, but Major League batters have been making it seem that way recently.  Carlos Beltran, Jose Bautista, Jason Giambi, Corey Hart and Carlos Quentin had all accomplished the feat heading into yesterday’s slate of games. You can now […]

    This Day In Sports History (June 2nd) – Lou Gehrig

    It was on this day in 1941 that Lou Gehrig passed away from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a form of motor neuron disease.  The disease is more commonly known throughout North America as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Lou Gehrig is considered by many to be one of the greatest baseball players of all-time.  Gehrig was given […]
