  • Hawks’ Game 5 Win Played on Wrigley Video Board During Rain Delay

    Hawks’ Game 5 Win Played on Wrigley Video Board During Rain Delay

    A lot of money was spent on Wrigley Field’s giant video board that made its debut for the Chicago Cubs’ 2015 season. On Saturday, during a rain delay in their game against the Cincinnati Reds, the Cubs put their new investment to good use by televising Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals on it. […]

    Giants’ Chris Heston Throws First No-Hitter of 2015 (Video)

    The San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Heston became the first Major League pitcher in 2015 to throw a no-hitter on Tuesday.  And he did so in a rather strange fashion, striking out 11 and walking none, but failing to achieve a perfect game thanks to three hit batters. Heston’s achievement came during San Francisco’s 5-0 victory […]

    Billy Hamilton Steals Second, Third, then Home…Because He Can (Video)

    Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton came to the Major Leagues with some pretty high expectations. The kid stole 155 bases in the minors in 2012, breaking Vince Coleman‘s Minor League record by 10 and eclipsing Rickey Henderson‘s Major League record by 25. Unfortunately, his rookie season in 2014 was a little bit of a […]

    Brewers Hector Gomez Goes Flying Face-First Into The Stands (Video)

    Hector Gomez didn’t come away with a catch when he dove into the stands face-first in an attempt to snag a pop-fly in foul territory during Wednesday’s game against the Cardinals.  That’s the bad news. The good news is he also didn’t come away with a concussion or any other type of serious injury, which is rather […]

    Indians Bullpen Takes Brandon Moss 100th Home Run Ball For Ransom

    Last night, Cleveland Indians outfielder Brandon Moss hit the 100th home run of his career during a 2-1 road victory against the Kansas City Royals.  Being such a significant milestone in the 31-year-old’s career, you’d think Moss would want to keep that ball as a memento. And he does!  Only problem is he’s going to have […]

    Bryce Harper Takes Selfie With Fan’s Phone (Pic)

    Bryce Harper has been killing it this season.  Through the first two months of his 2015 campaign, the 22-year-old outfielder currently has a slash line of .329/.470/.718 to go along with 18 homers and 44 RBIs. With numbers like that, no one if going to question Harper’s pregame antics or his mental focus.  That leaves […]

    21 Ridiculously Terrible Athlete Bobbleheads

    Sports fans love bobbleheads. Tell fans of a mediocre team with mediocre attendance that the first 20,000 people through the turnstiles will get a goofy looking statue and attendance will increase anywhere between 25-50%. (No really, I read it in the Wall Street Journal.) Unfortunately, not all bobbleheads are created equal. Some are humorous likenesses of professional athletes. Others […]
