    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    Entering last night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Washington Nationals had lost six straight against their division rivals.  They were looking to break out of that losing streak and they did so in a big way, thanks to the hot bat of Danny Espinosa. The Nats’ second baseman terrorized Phillies starter Cliff Lee to […]

  • Dad Crushes Kid To Catch A Foul Ball (Video)

    Dad Crushes Kid To Catch A Foul Ball (Video)

    Is it really worth diving across a few seats, crushing your son and making him cry, just to catch a foul ball?  To this father it was, but at least he came away with a souvenir via the great grab, unlike the dad at the Dodgers game, who dropped both his daughter and the ball […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    We could have easily given this “Stat Line of the Night” to “Disco” Dirk Nowitzki for scoring 40 points and dancing all over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s NBA championship hopes last night, but we simply could not ignore the performance put forth by the Milwaukee Brewers’ Corey Hart yesterday afternoon. Hart had yet to hit […]

    Picture Of The Day: An Analysis Of Balls In Sports

    So let me get this straight.  Whoever created this chart, which analyzes balls in sports, is trying to tell me that basketball players and bowlers have bigger balls than football players? Bowlers?  Seriously?  And where does the soccer ball fit into this entire equation?  Even their ball is bigger than a football.  I’m not sure […]

  • There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There isn’t much to get excited about when the Florida Marlins and the Chicago Cubs meet up these days.  But don’t tell that to this fan, who got  a little too excited during last night’s game at Sun Life Stadium, to say the least. According to the commentators, he was performing backflips in the outfield […]

    Picture Of The Day: Ouch!!!

    I am not quite sure how this baseball card of the Las Vegas Stars’ Keith Comstock didn’t make our list of the “9 Most Iconic Baseball Cards You Wish You Still Had.” I mean, that Billy Ripken card with the words “F**k Face” written on the bottom of his bat is cool and all, but […]

    Picture Of The Day: A Souvenir For The Kid

    “Nice catch mom!” That is what the child of this Gold Glove caliber mother would probably say, if he could talk.  Unfortunately he can’t.  And he is probably much to young to ever remember this moment.  Thankfully, his mother will always have this image to remind her son of the day she caught him a […]
