  • College Outfielder Makes an Amazing Catch over a Wall (Video)

    College Outfielder Makes an Amazing Catch over a Wall (Video)

    Baseball’s got its share of exciting moments, but nothing quite compares to a player making an insane catch. More than a home run or a strikeout, an amazing catch is a sudden display of athleticism, and you don’t get many of those in baseball. However, University of Evansville gave us an amazing catch last night, […]

    Watch The Most Emphatic Bat Flip Ever (GIF)

    You may have been saddened by the news that Yasiel Puig‘s bat flips will soon be endangered, but there are still others out there who plan to continue flipping their lumber. Florida State sophomore Quincy Nieporte is one of those individuals, as he celebrated a walk-off homer against the Florida Gators with one of the most aggressive, […]

  • A-Rod Smacked His First Home Run Since Fall of 2013 (Video)

    A-Rod Smacked His First Home Run Since Fall of 2013 (Video)

    Proving that you can’t keep a good man down (okay, maybe that’s not true), A-Rod smacked his first home run of the season against Toronto. His home run wasn’t just the first of the season, but his first since September, 2013, so it was a pretty big moment for the disgraced Yankess slugger. A-Rod was […]

    Yankees Fan Tries To Throw Back Home Run Ball, Fails (Video)

    It was a rough day for the New York Yankees during their home opener earlier today against the Toronto Blue Jays. They managed just three hits of their own, while starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka was roughed up for five third inning runs during a 6-1 drubbing. And as brutal as things were on the field […]

    Yoenis Cespedes made his debut with the Detroit Tigers earlier today during a 4-0 victory against the Minnesota Twins. The former Athletics and Red Sox outfielder contributed a double, triple, two runs, and a home-run-saving catch to his new club’s winning effort. A solid start, to say the least. You can watch the Yoenis Cespedes […]

    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 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 […]
