The modern bobblehead, also known as wobbler, nodder or bobbing head doll, first appeared in the 1950’s. The oversized head is usually [...]

Over the weekend I got to spend a day at Luther Williams Baseball Field in Macon, Georgia. Many of you are probably wondering why this is something that would excite me and cause me to share thoughts and pictures about it.

It was almost a calendar year ago today that I proudly wrote an article about Enerio Del Rosario, the first player from any of my Dayton Dragons teams to make it to the Major Leagues. He appeared for the Cincinnati Reds before being designated for assignment and being traded to the Houston Astros late in [...]

I always felt one of the coolest parts of my job with the Dayton Dragons during my three seasons was watching the future of Major League Baseball. Sure, a very small percentage will actually make it to the big leagues and get even a “cup of coffee,” but each team was filled with so called [...]

Last night I was able to fill one of my off days from working in baseball with one of my favorite passions, watching live baseball. Most people want to stay far away from their line of work when they get some off time, but I embrace it and seek it out. My buddy Lenny [...]
