  • This Day In Sports History (June 2nd) – Lou Gehrig

    This Day In Sports History (June 2nd) – Lou Gehrig

    It was on this day in 1941 that Lou Gehrig passed away from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a form of motor neuron disease.  The disease is more commonly known throughout North America as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Lou Gehrig is considered by many to be one of the greatest baseball players of all-time.  Gehrig was given […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    Entering last night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Washington Nationals had lost six straight against their division rivals.  They were looking to break out of that losing streak and they did so in a big way, thanks to the hot bat of Danny Espinosa. The Nats’ second baseman terrorized Phillies starter Cliff Lee to […]

    Fan Falls Over Wall At Camden Yards, Gets Arrested (Video)

    We have already provided you with two foul ball fails today.  So why not give you a third? This one come from Camden Yards, where a fan of the Baltimore Orioles was arrested for falling over the wall along the third base line while making an attempt on a foul ball. We aren’t quite sure […]

    Dad Crushes Kid To Catch A Foul Ball (Video)

    Is it really worth diving across a few seats, crushing your son and making him cry, just to catch a foul ball?  To this father it was, but at least he came away with a souvenir via the great grab, unlike the dad at the Dodgers game, who dropped both his daughter and the ball […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/29/11 — Clayton Kershaw

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/29/11 — Clayton Kershaw

    Last night the Los Angeles Dodgers sent their ace, Clayton Kershaw, to the mound in an attempt to salvage only their second series win in the month of May.  They had already split the first two games of their three-game set with the Florida Marlins, and a solid outing from Kershaw ensured that they would […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/23/11 — Corey Hart

    We could have easily given this “Stat Line of the Night” to “Disco” Dirk Nowitzki for scoring 40 points and dancing all over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s NBA championship hopes last night, but we simply could not ignore the performance put forth by the Milwaukee Brewers’ Corey Hart yesterday afternoon. Hart had yet to hit […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/19/11 — Jason Giambi

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/19/11 — Jason Giambi

    It has been a while since Jason Giambi’s glory days with the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics, but for those who are unaware, the 40-year-old is still kicking around the Majors with the Colorado Rockies, and it appears as though he still has some power left in that bat of his. With Todd Helton […]

  • There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There Was A Streaker At The Marlins Game Last Night (Video)

    There isn’t much to get excited about when the Florida Marlins and the Chicago Cubs meet up these days.  But don’t tell that to this fan, who got  a little too excited during last night’s game at Sun Life Stadium, to say the least. According to the commentators, he was performing backflips in the outfield […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/18/11 — Jake Peavy

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/18/11 — Jake Peavy

    The Cleveland Indians entered last night’s game against the Chicago White Sox swinging some rather hot bats.  They had recorded 26 runs in their previous two games, and had only been shutout once on the year.  You can now make that twice, thanks to a dominating performance from White Sox starter Jake Peavy. The former […]

    Picture Of The Day: A Souvenir For The Kid

    “Nice catch mom!” That is what the child of this Gold Glove caliber mother would probably say, if he could talk.  Unfortunately he can’t.  And he is probably much to young to ever remember this moment.  Thankfully, his mother will always have this image to remind her son of the day she caught him a […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/16/11 — Matt LaPorta

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/16/11 — Matt LaPorta

    We could probably award this Stat Line of the Night to the entire Cleveland Indians line-up, seeing as how they accumulated a total of 19 runs and 20 hits, including an incredible fourth inning that saw them record ten runs against the Kansas City Royals last night.  However, the Stat Line has always been about […]

    Everyone loves watching a fan make their way onto the playing field and run around aimlessly before finally being tackled by stadium security, but when will we ever be treated to the sight of a field intruder that successfully gets away? Today! Yes, the wait is over thanks to this Astros fan, who made his […]
