    This Day In Sports History (August 6th) — Carl Yastrzemski

    It was on this day in 1989 that the Boston Red Sox retired the #8 formerly worn by Carl Yastrzemski.  Yastrzemski spent his entire 23 year career with Boston and joined Bobby Doerr (#1), Joe Cronin (#4), Johnny Pesky (#6), Ted Williams (#9), Jim Rice (#14) and Carlton Fisk (#27) as the only players to […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/31/2013 — Mike Minor

    The Atlanta Braves are on a roll, and that roll continued during Wednesday night’s contest against the Colorado Rockies due in large part to Mike Minor‘s performance on the mound. Looking for their sixth win in a row, the Braves called upon Minor for the start, and the 25-year-old delivered in the form of seven […]

    Most men probably dream about getting up and dancing with the cheerleaders while attending a sporting event, but few men actually get to experience the reality of such.

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/29/2013 — Yoenis Cespedes

    Yoenis Cespedes may have impressed everyone with his display of power en route to winning the 2013 MLB Home Run Derby, but he entered last night’s contest against the Toronto Blue Jays without a homer in his last 25 games. It has been quite the power-outage for the 27-year-old left fielder, but he snapped out […]

    Someone Was Making It Rain at Safeco Field Yesterday (Video)

    The good people of Seattle are pretty used to rain—but not the kind of rain they had at the Mariners game yesterday. During the seventh inning stretch, somebody dropped a stack of 6,000 one dollar bills off the upper deck, making it rain money like Pacman Jones at a strip club, or Vince Young at […]
