This Hat Should be Blue, Not Gray

That’s UCLA pitcher Trevor Bauer below. His hat is worn down and gray. To the right is the rest of UCLA’s team. All their hats are blue as they’re supposed to be. Bauer struck out 11 Gators as UCLA beat Florida 11-3 in their first game at the College World Series on Saturday. Bauer not…Read More

Marlins Give Away Vuvuzela Horns

Someone in the Marlins marketing department had the bright idea of giving away 15,000 vuvuzela-like horns to fans in attendance for Saturday’s game against the Rays. You have to love the way the Marlins pitched it, saying the horns were given away to the first 15,000 fans. Right, as if they ever have more than…Read More

Manny Gets Mixed Reception in Return to Fenway Park

It wasn’t anything near the Bay Bridge series 6.9 earthquake that interrupted the A’s/Giants World Series in 1989, but the 5.7 earthquake in San Diego on Tuesday had people rattled. The Blue Jays beat the Padres 6-3 but the game was momentarily delayed in the 8th inning after David Eckstein’s groundout because of the quake….Read More

UCLA Doesn’t Learn Celebration Lesson

UCLA beat Cal State Fullerton 8-1 on Sunday to win their Super Regional and advance to the College World Series for the first time since Jim Parque and Troy Glaus donned the blue and gold. Junior Rob Rasmussen pitched them into Omaha with a complete game two-hitter, striking out nine. After getting the final out,…Read More
