    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 […]

    Adrian Beltre Laughs At Falling Cameraman (Video)

    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 […]

    Unaware Fan Hit In The Neck By Home Run Ball (Video)

    Watching balls fly into the stands at high speeds is all part of the game of baseball.  As a result, you will find plenty of signs around every Major League stadium reminding fans to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.” Coincidentally, one man present at Petco Park for yesterday’s game between the […]

    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 […]

    Watch Bryce Harper Hit A Home Run And Blow A Kiss To The Pitcher (Video)

    Baseball fans everywhere are patiently waiting for Washington Nationals prospect Bryce Harper to make his MLB debut, but it appears as though the highly-touted 18-year-old is still having fun terrorizing minor league pitchers throughout America. He continued his assault on Class-A pitchers last night when he sent a pitch soaring over the outfield fence.  As […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/15/11 — Jose Bautista

    Playing north of the 49th parallel, the Toronto Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista rarely gets the recognition he deserves.  Last season he led the majors in home runs with a total of 54.  This season he appears to be well on his way to earning the home run title once again, and his performance yesterday afternoon […]

    The Seattle Mariners’ Miguel Olivo hit a home run in the second inning of last night’s game against the Detroit Tigers.  If they handed out assists on home runs in the sport of baseball,  Ryan Raburn would have received the primary assist on this long fly ball, which only had enough distance to make it […]
