  • Yankees’ Ball Boy Makes A Great Grab

    Yankees’ Ball Boy Makes A Great Grab

    If they Yankees were ever looking for some help in the field, they may not have to look too far.  It appears as though they have a diamond in the rough of their own working the third base line at Yankee Stadium, and his name is not Alex Rodriguez. To be brutally honest, we don’t […]

  • Wild Is An Understatement For This Tim Lincecum Pitch (GIF)

    Wild Is An Understatement For This Tim Lincecum Pitch (GIF)

    Last night’s game between the Dodgers and the Giants was a wild one that included multiple batters being hit by pitches, several ejections, and the enforcement of a rare call which forced Dodgers’ closer Jonathan Broxton from the game in favor of a rusty George Sherrill.  But perhaps the wildest play came on a pitch […]

    Carl Crawford’s Groin Gets Picked-Off At First Base (Video)

    Perhaps Major League Baseball should make jockstraps mandatory.  I know one guy who would likely be in favor of such a decision, and his name is Carl Crawford. During last night’s game between the Rays and the Orioles, Crawford found himself on first base, but would not be there for long thanks to a Jake […]

  • Rangers Pitcher Dustin Nippert Takes Line Drive to the Head

    Rangers Pitcher Dustin Nippert Takes Line Drive to the Head

    It’s the absolute scariest thing that can happen on the baseball diamond. A pitcher fires the ball to the catcher and is falling off toward one side of the mound, not in a good defensive position.  The batter hits a screaming line drive right back at him and he has no time to react and […]

  • Minor League Fireworks Go Awry (Video)

    Minor League Fireworks Go Awry (Video)

    So you think you have pretty good seats at a Minor League baseball game, right? You’re behind home plate, you eat a few hot dogs doused in ketchup and mustard, drink a few cold brewskis and may even catch a foul ball that popped straight over the screen and into your lap. When the final […]

  • Baseball To The Groin (GIF)

    Baseball To The Groin (GIF)

    They say that the most difficult skill in sports is hitting a baseball, but I would argue that dodging a 100 mph fastball headed your way is equally difficult.  Seeing a ball thrown directly at your head is scary enough, but when that same baseball is headed for your groin… Thankfully this guy had his […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Does This Cubs Shirt Get These Kids Laid?

    Picture Of The Day: Does This Cubs Shirt Get These Kids Laid?

    Good old Wrigley Field.  The place where Chicago’s oddities seem to gather every afternoon to take in a ball game, and amaze us in the process. Whether it is a couple of shirtless teens showing off their matching tattoos (as moronic as they are), or a fan who has yet to figure out the proper […]

  • Veggie Mascot Proposes at Minor League Game

    Veggie Mascot Proposes at Minor League Game

    “So Linda, how did Jimmy propose?”

    “Oh it was so sweet. He won the Vegetable Race at the Reading Phillies game and then ran up into the stands. He grabbed a microphone and proposed. Luckily I had already had 10 beers by then. You wanna watch it? It’s on You Tube.”

  • Bobby Valentine Picks Jose Ortiz to Win The Derby (Video)

    Bobby Valentine Picks Jose Ortiz to Win The Derby (Video)

    It’s not unusual for ESPN talking heads to make boneheaded comments. In fact, it’s probably the norm. But we were taken by surprise when former Mets manager Bobby Valentine made a huge goof during ESPN’s telecast of the 2010 Home Run Derby. So yeah, that’s DAVID Ortiz, not Jose. You know, all those Hispanic guys […]

    Ken Griffey Jr.’s Goodbye Baseball, Hello Cooperstown Commercial (Video)

    Nike has always been super-creative when it comes to making commercials and building their brand.  In this new add they bring the clever in saluting the man with one of baseball’s all-time sweetest swings: Ken Griffey Jr. The cracks of the bat are accompanied by one of Seattle Mariners play by play announcer Rick Rizzs’ […]

  • “Oh My God! Ichiro Touched Me!”

    “Oh My God! Ichiro Touched Me!”

    Did I miss something here?  Since when did Mariners’ right fielder Ichiro Suzuki inherit a Johnny Depp-like status among the ladies?  And who would have thought that taking an elbow to the face from him would be such a joyous occasion for one lucky female? Perhaps Ichiro is America’s latest sex symbol.  The man who […]

    Jayson Werth Curses Out Phillies Dad, Terrifies Son (Video)

    The common reaction for anyone who sees a foul ball headed their way, whether they are seated against the railing in the upper deck or in the front row by the field, is to catch it.  That is exactly what this dad did.  Unfortunately, it meant taking away a catch from Phillies’ right fielder Jayson […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/8/10 – Roy Oswalt

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/8/10 – Roy Oswalt

    Houston Astros flamethrower Roy Oswalt has been the subject of trade rumors lately, and after last night’s dominant performance his market value just went up. The Astros were taking on the Pirates in Houston, a battle of two of the worst teams in baseball this year. Oswalt allowed a first-inning single to Pirates 2nd baseman […]

  • Picture Of The Day: What Kind Of A Discount Is That?

    Picture Of The Day: What Kind Of A Discount Is That?

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what city this sign can be found in.  You simply have to love the respect that Bostonians have for their hometown Red Sox fans.  Twenty percent off?  Sounds like a great deal!  As for the Yankee fans, I wonder how much “F-Off” will save them on […]
