Hi Corbett Field in Tuscon, Arizona..Found You!

Some folks can sniff out gold from miles away.  Some folks can sniff out trouble from around the corner.  Me? I can sniff out a baseball stadium from thousands of feet away.  While visiting my sister in Tuscon, Arizona where her and her husband moved a year ago, I knew that two former Major League […]

Catching up with Enerio Del Rosario

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 […]

Jerry Sands, the Minor Leaguer

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 […]

Visit to the Rome Braves

 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 […]

Bobby, Freddie and Myself

Before Opening Day at Turner Field, I got the chance to meet former Atlanta Braves Manager, and future Hall of Famer, Bobby Cox.  He was on hand to throw out the first pitch before the game.  Current manager Freddie Gonzalez caught the ball at home plate.  I was standing in the dugout talking with the […]

My Cup of Coffee

For a guy that does not drink coffee, and cannot stand the taste of coffee flavored products, I have never wanted a cup so bad the last few years.  Being a member of the baseball community, a “cup of coffee” does not mean what it sounds like.  I know all you Seinfeld fans are thinking […]

This Date in Baseball History…

On this date, April 8th, in 1974, Atlanta Braves Outfielder Hank Aaron belted his 715th career homer.  This home run broke Babe Ruth’s record for most HR’s All-Time in Major League Baseball History. Aaron hit the historic homer in Fulton County Stadium, which now stands as a parking lot across the street from Turner Field, […]

Drug Testing Good, Product Testing Bad

I respect what Major League Baseball has done the last few years to “clean up the game,” and try to eliminate all performance enhancing drugs.  I understand that it can be a pain for a player to have to pee in a cup a few times a season at random times, and sit through numerous […]

Vote for new West Michigan Whitecaps Outrageous Food

I have talked many times about the great food at Fifth Third Ballpark in Michigan, home to the West Michigan Whitecaps. I have written several stories about the 5/3 Burger and the Declaration of Indigestion.  The team prides itself not only on outstanding food, but also the bizarre items.  It is that time of year […]

Never Understand Baseball Hall of Fame Voting Process

Although I will love the game of baseball until death do us part, there are still certain things that I don’t understand about it.  Sure, not even the players or umpires know the entire rule book from cover to cover and can understand half of what it says, but I am talking about something off […]
