Jose Bautista’s 54 home runs

MLB.com has put together a video showing each of Jose Bautista’s 54 home runs this season. It’s remarkable that his first opposite field home run is his most recent this year. There has been a lot of speculation about Jose Bautista being on steroids, but how can anyone say that? I’m sure he’s being tested(…)

The Umpire disagrees, and the manager just goes crazy. I don’t quite understand why baseball managers can go crazy(…)

Washington Nationals rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg has a significant tear of the ulnar collateral ligament that will probably require Tommy John surgery, the Nationals announced today.

Crazy Amazing Baseball Catch Part Deux!

Another crazy spiderman like baseball catch happened in a Hiroshima Carp game. This time it was center fielder Amaya Soichiro that climbed up the wall and made the grab. I don’t think its better than Masato Akamatsu’s catch, but it is right up there with it. When are these Japanese league players going to come(…)

Woman Drenched by Foul Ball

A woman was enjoying her beer at a Nationals game when a line drive hit her beer bottle. The beer then exploded all over her face. Damn those $10 metal bottles! Look at the bright side, at least she only got hit in the face by the beer and not the ball. But notice the(…)
