    This Day In Sports History (September 12th) — Carl Yastrzemski

     It was on this day in 1979 that Carl Yastrzemski hit his 3,000th career hit.  He became the fifteenth player in Major League history to reach that milestone. Carl Yastrzemski  played his entire 23-year baseball career with the Boston Red Sox, accumulating a total of 3,419 hits thanks to a .285 career batting average.  On […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 8/27/2013 — Shane Victorino

    The Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles kicked off a three-game set last night that could very well determine which of these two teams—along with the Tampa Bay Rays—will finish atop the AL East.  And following last night’s offensive outburst from Shane Victorino, it appears as though the Red Sox are now in the driver’s […]

    This Day In Sports History (August 6th) — Carl Yastrzemski

    It was on this day in 1989 that the Boston Red Sox retired the #8 formerly worn by Carl Yastrzemski.  Yastrzemski spent his entire 23 year career with Boston and joined Bobby Doerr (#1), Joe Cronin (#4), Johnny Pesky (#6), Ted Williams (#9), Jim Rice (#14) and Carlton Fisk (#27) as the only players to […]

    Someone Was Making it Rain at a Baseball Game Again (Video)

    On Monday, we told you how a company called 5K Tailgate “made it rain” from the upper deck during a Mariners game at Safeco Field.  Last night, it was raining money once again at an MLB ballpark. On second thought, perhaps it would be more appropriate if we said it was “spitting” money, as a […]

    A couple months back, NBA free agent Jason Collins made history when he came out as gay in a Sports Illustrated article, thus becoming the first openly gay pro athlete in United State professional sports. It was a pretty big deal, and it elicited both criticism and praise. Of course, one of the most notable […]

    Yesterday’s Sunday Night Baseball showdown between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox turned into a Sunday night weather report in the sixth inning, as play was halted twice due to rain before finally being called. But not even a delay in the action could prevent the highlights from rolling in.  Check out […]

    David Ortiz to Boston Red Sox Fans: “This Is Our F*cking City”

    It was an emotional day at Fenway Park on Saturday, as the Boston Red Sox played their first home game since the tragic events at Monday’s Boston Marathon.  Most of those in attendance put their emotions on display in a safe-for-work manner, whether it be through the use of signs, by chanting “U-S-A,” or by […]

    Last Wednesday, just two days after the Boston Marathon Bombing, Bruins fans encapsulated the strength of their city by coming together and singing the Star Spangled Banner in unison during the B’s first home game since the tragic act of terrorism. On Saturday, it was Red Sox Nation’s chance to put Boston’s strength on display, […]

    Shane Victorino Steals Some Peanuts from a Fan (Video)

    This past offseason, the Boston Red Sox signed outfielder Shane Victorino to a three-year, $39 million deal. That’s not Josh Hamilton or Zack Greinke money, but $13 million a year is still a pretty nice chunk of change. Divide that total by 365 and that works out to an income of $35,616 per day, which […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/14/2013 — Clay Buchholz

    Boston Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz has been dominant thus far this season, as he entered the weekend having allowed only one run against in 14 innings of work through his first two starts.  And his dominance on the mound continued on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Buchholz’s third start of the season was […]
