    Former Cubs Pitcher Auctioning Off Sammy Sosa’s Corked Bat

    During a game against the Tampa Bay Rays on June 3, 2003, Sammy Sosa hit a ground ball to second base that would prove to be quite costly to him, and quite profitable for former Cubs pitcher Mike Remlinger.  Sosa’s bat shattered on the play, causing the umpires to investigate what appeared to be a […]

    Picture Of The Day: Even for a Cardinals Fan, this is tough to see

    Here’s a pic of Lou Piniella crying during his final game as the Chicago Cubs manager, and also his final game in a big league uniform ever. But contrary to popular belief, those are tears of joy. He just quit THE CUBS people! He’s stoked. Why?  THEY SUCK. They haven’t won a world series since […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/22/10 – Jason Heyward

    Yesterday marked the end of an era in baseb, all, as long-time manager Lou Piniella managed his last game in baseball.  He had announced that he would retire after the season, but in the days leading up to Sunday’s game he decided to call it quits sooner.  He was a great manager for many years, […]

    Cubs Fan Catches Ball In Beer Glass, then Chugs (Video)

    If you live in Chicago and are a Cubs fan, it would make some sense that you would drink. Or start drinking if you have to watch this team. The Bleacher Bums have taken to having some fun and getting creative with their beer gulping. Because, let’s face it — once again this team stinks […]

  • With Child In One Hand, Dad Catches Foul Ball With Other

    With Child In One Hand, Dad Catches Foul Ball With Other

    We here at TotalProSports are all about giving fans props for their remarkable display of soft hands while catching a foul ball at the ballgame.  We have seen them do it in several different ways, but it doesn’t appear to get any better than a dad making a nice grab while holding their child at […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/20/10 — Aramis Ramirez

    Tuesday was a huge day for the Chicago Cubs.  Their manager and leader Lou Piniella announced his retirement at the age of 66.  Lou has been in the league for many years as a player, coach and manager.  As the Cubs manager, he had taken the team to the playoffs twice but flamed out in […]

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 7/4/10 – Drew Stubbs

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 7/4/10 – Drew Stubbs

    It was the fourth of July, and while the fireworks were not expected to fly until later on in the night, the Cincinnati Reds had other ideas as they would put on an air show of their own.  And leading the charge would be center fielder Drew Stubbs. On a day when the Reds combined […]

    Picture Of The Day: Cubs Fans And Their Matching Tattoos

    You would think that getting the words “sweet” and “dude” tattooed on your back is so stupid that the only place you would see such stupidity is in a stupid movie like Dude, Where’s My Car.  Well it appears as though there is one place on earth where you can expect a similar level of […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/13/10 — Ted Lilly

    The Chicago Cubs played their crosstown rivals the Chicago White Sox this weekend.  Although the White Sox took the first two games easily, the final game yesterday would turn out to be far more interesting than the first two.  Ted Lilly took the mound for the Cubs and had an epic duel with the White […]

    Wheel Him Outta Here! (Video)

    I can’t help but think that this may be just about the greatest exit from a baseball game ever.  Forget about all those guys who want to throw beer and punches at one another before having security take them by the arm and usher them out.  This guy knows how to exit a party in […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 5/25/10 — Ryan Dempster

    The Chicago Cubs have struggled a bit in the early-going this season, but no one ever complained about their starting pitching.  With Ryan Dempster on the mound, the Cubs have reason to be confident about getting a win.  Last night, he delivered again.  Derrek Lee helped out as well. Ryan Dempster was dominant all night […]

  • Milton Bradley Has Had Enough With America’s Racism

    Milton Bradley Has Had Enough With America’s Racism

    Total Pro Sports – We have all likely become accustomed to hearing Milton Bradley rant and whine, but this time he may actually be onto something. Bradley has not had the best of years, batting an unimpressive .259 and tallying only 11 homer runs and 35 RBIs.  That is enough to get almost any $10-million-a-year […]

    Need To Get A Close Up Pic At The Game?

    Total Pro Sports – Those Chicago Cubs fans never seem to disappoint.  Whether it is the rowdiness of their bleacher boys, or their inability to understand the dynamics of a baseball hat, they always seem to provide something for our entertainment. This time it is part of the Cubs’ female fan base that has a […]
