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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

The NCAA Tournament is officially underway as the “First Four” kicked off last night with a pair of play-in games from Dayton, Ohio. Two teams seeded 16 squared off in the first contest followed by two 12 seeds in the second game of the night. Winners of each would then advance on to the next […]

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 […]

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 […]

I think the state of Kentucky gets a bad wrap. True there are lots of horses and farm land, but it has some really cool things in it. The other day I was driving around it with my good buddies Mark and Lenny and we came to two of my favorite spots. Of course, this […]
