Honoring One of the Best Shortstops in MLB History

Derek Jeter, New York Yankees #2, played his final game of his career last season. I had the opportunity to go see him play one of those final games in New York exactly a year ago today (May 18, 2014). During the game, he had a base hit. It was very exciting being able to see him play in person before he ended his career. This one’s for you, captain.

Baseball From Smith’s Latest Home Run Found in a Local Neighborhood

On May 7, Gaeton Smith had a home run against the Anniston Shamrocks. We have been notified that the ball that was hit during the home run has been found in the bush of a nearby neighborhood. Jack December, the man who found the ball, is shocked that the ball landed in his bushes. “I went to mow the lawn and noticed something sitting on top of my bushes,” December said. “I was shocked when I realized it was the ball Smith hit out of the park!” December was not able to attend the game because of prior engagements. It’s as if he was able to take a piece of the game home with him anyways.

Pranksters put a tree between the mound and home plate on a high school baseball field

HardballTalk

One of the best scenes in Bull Durahm is when the tired and scuffling Durham Bulls need a day off. So they engineer one:

“What we need is a rain out.”

“I can get us a rain out.”

“Man, there ain’t been a cloud in weeks.”

“Hundred bucks says I can get us a rainout for tomorrow.”

“You’re on!”

And then Crash Davis proceeds to sabotage the field with sprinklers.

This appears to be more of a senior prank than anything else, but I would like to think the pranksters included at least one kid who just didn’t feel like playing the next day:
