    Astros Fan Spikes Ceremonial First Pitch (Video)

    The Houston Astros are much better this season than they have been the last two years. That said, they’re still not anything close to good. Their winning percentage of .421 has them on pace to lose 93 games this year. Strange as it may sound, though, that’s actually good news for one Astros fan. Why? […]

    “Bad British Commentary” is a recurring feature comedy web series Words In My Mouth from YouTube channel The Whistle.

    Catching a foul ball with your hat is impressive. What’s even more impressive is catching a foul ball with your hat while holding a baby with your other arm.
