    Fan Takes Anthony Rendon’s Homer Off the Face (Video)

    Every time I attend a Major League Baseball game, I can’t help but wonder how we don’t see more fans suffer injuries, or even die, from balls flying into the stands.  After all, if a professional like Twins left fielder Oswaldo Arcia can be the victim of a ball-to-the-face on a lazy fly ball, you’d […]

    Before the 2013 MLB season started, lots of experts were saying the Washington Nationals were the best team in baseball, and that they would win the National League East in a cakewalk.
