You Just Don’t See This Everyday, Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr.

Baseball Ross likes to say that he loves baseball because every game you watch, you see something you’ve ¬†never seen before. Today, that was seeing the sons of 3 major league stars bat, 1-2-3 in Dunedin’s line up. Today was the final regular season game for the Threshers and Blue Jays. The Jays eliminated the […]

It’s Tebow Time! Tebow-Mania comes to Spectrum Field

When was the last time you saw the home team PROMOTING a player FROM THE OPPOSING team? Apparently, Tebow-Mania has created such a frenzy, that the Threshers are promoting an opposing player.

Curletta was sitting on the bench during the minor league intrasquad game. He didn’t even know where he was going, he […]

It was a great day for baseball and the Phillies young guns made it even better with a win. Baseball Ross and I were impressed with the play of Dylan Cozens, Roman Quinn and Jorge Alfaro. We put together a video of pictures and clips along with our thoughts on the game. You can watch […]

Phillies Spring Training Day 7–February 20, 2017

It was another day of drills and batting practice. It was also a day of a little bit of levity. During the pop-up drill, Freddy Galvis came from third base all the way in to the first base line, just in front of the plate…but when he got there, he missed the ball. Not to […]
