It’s not really necessary for me to include the year is it? David Freese made a name for himself (and probably millions of dollars, soon?) and found himself on the cover – that’s it at the right – of an A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions package of one of “Baseball’s Greatest Games: 2011 World Series, [...]

Matt Adams is going home. (Actually, he may well already be there, but you never know with these ball players these days.) According to the Centre Daily Times, Adams will be making an appearance to shake hands and sign his name to things in his hometown of Philipsburg, PA today. Reading the link above, it [...]

I don’t know about you, but when I think Whitey Herzog, I think of people stealing things.  And when I think of people stealing things, I think of… uh, hang on, let me start over. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Sam’s Club, I think of a White Rat… er, that’s [...]

Need a reason to get out and do something the night of August 20th?  Some guy named Jason Motte is going to be doing an autograph signing at Chesterfield Baseball Cards according to this page.  Of course, the page lists the day as “Saturday, August 20, 2012″, so maybe Jason’s calendar isn’t the same as [...]

Apparently, Skip’s generosity brings all the stars to the yard (or the church in this case).  The host of the charity event “STARS 4 Baby Reesa” worked with some St Louis and Mizzou sports favorites and an incredible team of volunteers from Sunrise UMC to create a miracle.  While the quick takeaway from the charity [...]

UPDATED 07/17/2012: Many thanks to the folks from 101 ESPN The Fast Lane for giving us some linkage love today.  To get the absolute latest information, click here. Several weeks ago I posted information about Skip Schumaker’s upcoming charity event to benefit Reesa Stutzman (original post here).  Some relevant information has since become available, and [...]

Fans at the All-Star Game festivities in Kansas City had an opportunity of a lifetime.  AL Home Run Derby captain Robinson Cano opted not to pick the Royals’ DH Billy Butler for his team.  For reasons Cano does not necessarily have to fully explain, he instead chose Prince Fielder, Jose Bautista, and Mark Trumbo.  Naturally, [...]
