    Not-So-Classy Female Yankees Fan Gets Ejected From Citi Field (Video)

    Baseball games are a great example of the social contract. Thousands of people show up to watch a ball game, and they all behave properly as part of an unspoken agreement that they engage in with the stadium and its workers. But not everybody is always on board with this agreement. Take the female Yankees […]

    Check Out this Amazing Color Footage of the 1939 World Series (Video)

    People generally assume that, since most of the movies and photographs we have from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s are in black and white, color photography wasn’t even around. But that’s not true. Technicolor (for movies) was invented all the way back in 1916 and radically improved in 1929, and Kodachrome (for photographs) was invented […]

    Stat Line Of The Night – 5/10/12 – C.C. Sabathia

    Going into Thursday night, the New York Yankees were 16-14, one game behind the Toronto Blue Jays.  The Yankees sent their ace C.C. Sabathia to the mound to face off against the Tampa Bay Rays’ ace David Price, who had won his last four consecutive starts.  The Yankees were looking for a strong start from […]

    Mariano Rivera Tears ACL While Shagging Fly Balls (Video)

    Being a Toronto Blue Jays fan, there are plenty of players on the New York Yankees that I would love to see pull up lame with a serious knee injury while shagging fly balls in the outfield during batting practice.  Mariano Rivera is not one of them. Rivera suffered a torn ACL during Yankees batting […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/19/12 — Curtis Granderson

    After losing two of their first three games to the Minnesota Twins, the New York Yankees were hoping to salvage a series split with a victory last night.  They would do just that, thanks in part to the bat of Curtis Granderson. The Yankees’ center fielder entered the game with his batting average barely over […]

    These Blonde Twins Were At The Twins Game Last Night (Video)

    Talk about a coincidence! During last night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins in the Bronx, YES Network cameras caught these two identical twins sitting in the first row with their matching outfits.  That seemed to be the prefect time for Michael Kay to promote the network’s broadcast for today’s game […]

    Baseball Bling: 15 Best World Series Championship Rings

    This past Saturday was “Ring Day” at Busch Stadium in St. Louis—the day every member of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals (plus every other employee of the franchise) had been waiting for since the team won its 11th World Series Championship back in October. And as it turns out, it was well worth the wait. Rubies, […]

    Picture Of The Day: NY Post 1, A-Rod 0

    Yesterday we informed you that a New York Yankees fan may have been responsible for killing former Libyan tyrant Moammar Gadhafi.  The New York Post was sharing similar information on their front cover this morning, and in doing so, they decided to take the opportunity to throw in a cheap-shot at the Big Apple’s favorite […]

    This Day In Sports History (October 20th) – Boston Red Sox

    It was on this day in 2004 that the Boston Red Sox completed the greatest comeback in baseball history.  The Red Sox defeated the Yankees in Game 7 after being down in the ALCS 0-3. This was the first time in baseball history that a team had come back in a series after being down […]

    Picture Of The Day: Tigers Win!

    As most of you may already know, the Detroit Tigers ended the New York Yankees’ season with a 4-3 victory in Game 5 of the ALDS last night.  And if you ask any Tigers fan or Yankees hater to paint a picture of what happened at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, October 6, 2011, chances are […]

    9 Reasons Why This Could Be The Best MLB Post-Season Ever

    The 2011 MLB playoffs kick off tonight, with the Texas Rangers hosting the Tampa Bay Rays followed by the New York Yankees hosting the Detroit Tigers. This year, however, the biggest question going into October isn’t so much, “who will win the World Series,” but instead, “is there any way the playoffs can be half […]
