We are probably a little late on this one, but we just came across this fantastic YouTube clip. It’s a video of a “British play by play” of a New York Yankees game against the Boston Red Sox. The announcer is giving the play by play as if he’s watching a cricket match and gets utterly confused.

Player: Michael Wacha
Bio: Another prospect, another Cardinal. That is not the only similarity between Shelby Miller and Wacha, as they both hail from Texas. Again, he was also accepted to play at Texas A&M, but unlike Miller, elected to play college ball. In his final season, Read the rest of this entry »
The youth today are heavily involved in sports. Research has shown that performing in sports at a young age can help to build social skills and characteristics. Unfortunately there are down sides to youth sports. As the children get older, less and less continue to play for several different reasons. Parental income plays a large part in whether children continue to participate in sport. Read the rest of this entry »
Root, root, root, root for the home clothes!
As the 2013 baseball season enters its second month, New York Mets first baseman Ike Davis looks as though his major league career might not be long for this Earth. This is the second straight year that Ike has gotten off to a horrifically brutal start. Last year it was slightly understandable as his ankle wasn’t fully healed and he had a slight bout with Valley Fever. But this season after posting better than a .300 average in spring training (I know spring training doesn’t mean much.) it looked like Ike would be closer to where he was before his ankle injury in 2011.

Although the new MLB season is just days away, it will be months before we get to the World Series stage, as teams have to compete in their AL and NL Divisions (East, West and Central), as well as for the AL or NL pennant first. However that does not stop people beginning to speculate and bet on which teams have a realistic chance of winning the World Series this season – and for this reason it can be helpful to know who the pre-season favorites are.

Yankee Stadium was completely empty before the game was over on opening day.
Opening day is like New Years Eve. Lots of drunks and far too much optimism. Much like New Years Eve, that optimism dies a horrible death a month or two later when you realize your team sucks or your new years resolution was a lie. Regardless, an opening day victory from your favorite baseball team will get you giddy. Giddy enough to where you start planning out your team’s playoff rotation. Opening Day 2013 has arrived, and I’ll run though some of the highlights, or most likely the low lights, of the most important games of the day. Read the rest of this entry »
Did Dottie Hinson Drop the Ball on Purpose?
Follow @Matt__Harris on Twitter
For fans of the 1992 classic, ‘A League of Their Own’, this debate has long tortured them. Did Dottie drop the ball of purpose or was her younger sister, Kit, able to barrel over her sister at home to win the game? Let’s set the scene…We flash to Game 7 of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) World Series between Dottie’s Rockford Peaches and Kit’s Racine Belles. (You’ll remember that Dottie was the All-Star catcher, and Kit was the talented albeit hotheaded pitcher.)

It’s almost impossible to describe the last 48 hours of my life, as one of my life long dreams have come true. After game one of the World Series, we had gone to dinner with the Detroit Tigers infield coach Rafael Belliard, for his birthday, at The House of Prime Rib in San Francisco. While waiting for our table, we started talking about our experience at the Detroit Tigers World Series game 1. I became teary eyed and almost started to cry! Read the rest of this entry »

It takes too long…
The umps usually get it right anyway…
They haven’t really used replay for 100 years, why now?…
Who cares? You’re right, and it’s 2012 for Christ’s sake!
Why is it that a regular season game between the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs has 18 different cameras out there to make sure that the right call is made, but MLB has like 3 for a playoff game? It makes NO SENSE. Read the rest of this entry »
