    Arkansas Fan Tries To Catch Home Run Ball With His Visor (Video)

    In case you haven’t already figured this out for yourself by now, catching a ball with a visor will not work.  It’ll never work. But that didn’t stop this Arkansas fan from trying during Thursday’s SEC match-up with LSU, as he attempted to snag a home run off the bat of Tigers shortstop Alex Bergman with […]

    ARod Home Run? ARod Home Run! (Video)

    It happened earlier today during a Grapefruit League game against the hated Boston Red Sox, Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run to left-center field, cutting the Yankees’ deficit to 5-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning.  It was his first home run in Spring Training, and I’m sure the New York tabloids will find […]

    I know Major League Baseball’s PED protocol calls for “random” testing, but you have to wonder if Toronto’s Melky Cabrera wasn’t peeing into a little cup after last night’s game in Boston. Cabrera hit two home runs during the Blue Jays’ 14-1 rout of the Red Sox—one from each side of the plate—and the second […]

    The legend of Yasiel Puig just continues to grow, pretty much on a daily basis. The fun-loving, cannon-armed, bat-flipping, bobble-headed Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder is already a superstar among Dodgers fans and a household name among baseball fans throughout the rest of the country. However, over the next few days, he could very well enter the sports stratosphere. […]

    Carlos Gomez Robs Joey Votto of Home Run…Again (Videos)

    Last July, Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez gave us one of the most exciting endings to a baseball game we saw all season. With the Brewers up 4-3 and trying to close out the Reds in the top of the 9th, Joey Votto came to the plate with a runner on first and two […]

  • Bryce Harper Sent a Ball Into Orbit vs. the Marlins (Video)

    Bryce Harper Sent a Ball Into Orbit vs. the Marlins (Video)

    Bryce Harper entered Wednesday in the midst of an awful slump, hitting just .160 with zero home runs and zero RBIs in 17 at bats on the season… Then he did this: After being reviewed, Harper’s three-run homer would stand, bringing the Nats to within two runs of the Miami Marlins. Harper finished the game […]

  • This Day In Sports History (September 26th) — Roger Maris

    This Day In Sports History (September 26th) — Roger Maris

    It was on this day in 1961 that Roger Maris hit his 60th home run of the season, tying Babe Ruth’s record for most home runs in a single season. The 1961 season marked the first season that the MLB extended its schedule to 162 games.  Prior to the start of the season, Maris was […]

    Check Out 6-Year-Old Baseball Phenom Spencer Conn (Video)

    Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was the most-hyped baseball phenom since Dwight Gooden burst onto the scene as a 19-year-old flamethrower back in 1984. However, unlike Gooden, Harper was being touted as the “next big thing” practically from the time he was playing Little League. Thanks to the epic moonshots he hit in high school, […]

  • Fan Takes Anthony Rendon’s Homer Off the Face (Video)

    Fan Takes Anthony Rendon’s Homer Off the Face (Video)

    Every time I attend a Major League Baseball game, I can’t help but wonder how we don’t see more fans suffer injuries, or even die, from balls flying into the stands.  After all, if a professional like Twins left fielder Oswaldo Arcia can be the victim of a ball-to-the-face on a lazy fly ball, you’d […]
