Franchise Records Set in 2009

Earlier this month, in what proved to be a media circus, Derek Jeter moved past Lou Gehrig to sit alone atop the record books as the All-Time Yankee Hit King. It was a huge moment for Jeter, and Yankees fans all over the world celebrated it. To those of us outside of the Yankee Universe, […]

A Great Weekend at Miller Park

A view from the Midwest Best Care Seats. Sometimes you just have a good weekend at the ballpark. Even when your team is out of it for the year. I think there’s a lesson there somewhere. So what all did I get to see this weekend? On Saturday night, I went to the Brewers-Astros game at […]

Your Friday Video Fun: Silver Spoons and Baseball Cards

Well, it’s going to be another short post today, so I thought I’d give you all some more video fun. If you guys are liking this, or not, please let me know. I know it’s a little different than the kind of stuff I normally put up here, but a little fun and games every […]

Historically Low RBIs… and Milton Bradley

I was only able to watch a little of the Brewers-Cubs game last night (and boy am I thankful for that), but I did notice something that struck me as interesting. At the start of the game, when Milton Bradley came to bat for the first time, he was sitting on 39 RBI. This is […]

Archive Diving: Ichiro!

There’s a lot of love for Ichiro! going around the internets today, and why not? He’s still one of the most fun, exciting, and unique players in baseball, and the fact that he got his 200th hit last night – to become the first person ever with 9 consecutive 200-hit seasons (and from the start […]

Football, Baseball, and the Era of the “Superstadium”

I don’t know about you, but I spent my weekend, along with millions and millions of others, watching football. On Saturday, I watched my hometown Fresno State Bulldogs blow their chance to beat my adoptive hometown Wisconsin Badgers in double-overtime and, on Sunday, I watched the Packers beat the Bears in a mostly-ugly Sunday night […]

More Friday Video Fun

Well, it’s been one of those weeks. It’s already Friday, and I was never really able to get the various posts that I had planned for the week finished. I guess that’s just the way things go sometimes. Not that I’m complaining – it was a pretty good week after all, even if the Brewers […]

Tony La Russa Uses Hairspray

Okay, so I’m being extra lazy today. I guess that’s the way the week is shaping up. Hopefully I’ll have something longer and more insightful up by Friday. In the meantime, though, I hope you enjoy this 1985 advertisement that I found hilarious: Did you know that Tony La Russa uses hairspray? (click to enlarge) […]

Old Yankees In Very Old Uniforms

Rickey, Steinbrenner, Yogi and other Yankees dress in classic uniforms belonging to collector Barry Halper (Photos by Richard Pilling – sorry for the poor scanning quality) Looking through some of my old Sporting News preview guides the other night, I came across this interesting photo set from the 1985 issue. The article, called “Uniforms of […]
