    This Day In Sports History (September 14th) – Toronto Blue Jays

        It was on this day in 1987 that the Toronto Blue Jays hit a Major League record 10 home runs in a single game.  The Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 18-3 in a game played at Toronto’s Exhibition Stadium. Catcher Ernie Whitt would lead the charge with three home runs, while both George […]

    After catching seven home run balls during the 2011 MLB season, Texas Rangers fan Trent Williams figured it was about time he begins celebrating these souvenir grabs with a sprinkler dance.  And during last night’s game between the Rangers and the Seattle Mariners, he introduced that dance to the world.

    Celebrations following scoring plays have become all the rage in sports like football and soccer, and now it appears as though baseball has finally begun to catch onto the trend.  We saw evidence of that during last year’s Little League World Series, and this year it appears as though the Ole Miss student section has […]

    If hitting three home runs during Game 4 of the ALDS wasn’t enough to put a smile on the face of Adrian Beltre, watching the cameraman take a tumble while following him around the base path during one of those homers certainly was.  It was also enough to get a bit of a chuckle out […]

    Elaborate Home Run Celebration At The Little League World Series (Video)

    At the risk of sounding really old, isn’t anyone teaching kids about a little thing called sportsmanship these days? At the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, the team from the Netherlands performed an elaborately choreographed celebration after a home run by Phayson Antonio. After smashing an opposite field long ball, Antonio rounds […]

    Giants Fan Gets Run Over By Kayak In McCovey Cove (Video)

    The baseball souvenir free-for-all continues! But unlike what we have seen in previous weeks, this time the battle did not take place on the dry lands of the stadium bleachers.  Instead, it occurred beyond the outfield fence at AT&T Park, on the wet waters of McCovey Cove. Following a Pablo Sandoval blast, two kayakers squared […]

    Miguel Tejada Almost Gets Hit By His Own Home Run Ball (Video)

    Much like getting drunk in the outfield bleachers, throwing an opposing team’s home run ball back onto the field has become quite the tradition at Wrigley Field.  Oftentimes this turns into a rather embarrassing moment for the fan on the receiving end of the opposition’s homer, but every once in a while we get a […]
