    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 […]

    Old Lady Catches Home Run Ball, Forced To Throw It Back (Video)

    It was great to see the joy on the face of this elderly female Rangers fan after she caught a home run ball at the game last night.  Unfortunately, that home run came off the bat of an Anaheim Angels player, and as the unwritten rules of Rangers Ballpark state, “no fan is permitted to […]

    It is no secret that Sidney Crosby is the best hockey player in Pittsburgh, but he may also be the best baseball player in the city as well.  Especially when you consider the fact that his toughest competition comes from the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Bunt For An Inside The Park Home Run (GIF)

    This is what myself and my friends would define as a “cheese move.”  Every sports video game had at least one.  Whether it was the wrap-around in NHL ’94 which would result in a goal every time, or the I-Formation running play in Madden ’94 that seemingly always went for a touchdown.

    Total Pro Sports – It always feels good to hit a towering home run shot, but it has to feel extra special when you win $25,000 for a fan in the process.  That’s what Ken Griffey Jr. did yesterday in Minnesota as his home run ball went through the Subway “Free Hit” target in the […]

    ARod Homers In Return

    Total Pro Sports – Talk about drama. Alex Rodriguez provided just that with a home run shot in his first at bat back from a wild summer that saw him come under heat for steroid use and have surgery on his hip.  Unfortunately, after that there wasn’t much else to talk about.
