Happy birthday, Sir. Thanks for the laughs! :gulp:
I live in Merrick. The closest player to me I found is John Lannan from Long Beach. He last pitched in MLB in 2014 and is currently struggling for Omaha, Kansas City's AAA team. Kansas City has Kevin McCarthy from Rockville Centre, who hasn't reached MLB, at AA Northwest Arkansas. Sean Nolin from Seaford pitched 29 innings for Oakland last year, but he hasn't pitched in the majors or minors in 2016. In terms of retired players, Frank Viola, who won 176 games, was born in Hempstead and went...
Could a pitcher theoretically just drop the ball in front of him and it would be considered a ball?
One of those "well why dont they just do this when they intentionally walk someone" questions...might save strain on the arm and prevent injury.
Random thought. Lol
To one and all, please use this weekend well, and to honor our many veterans who died for us in times of war.
To the many US servicemen snd women, please honor the troops who have kept this great nation of ours free.
The Tall Ships are in town, and there are many soldiers walking the streets of New York City.
I wonder how they'll find a jury who hasn't heard and formed opinions about this.
I used to play this on another site I post at...thought it might be fun to start here.

Just wanted to offer an apology to anyone I may have bothered or offended in the recent past. Politics is one area I am admittedly a bit too passionate about at times and tend to get a bit carried away and made way too much use of the ignore feature and instead of just doing it made it known. Well not only have I not used this feature in some time and as of now will not use it. Think I will be taking a break from the election thread for awhile!
Treat your mother every day as you will today! Also a thought to the children whose mom is no longer with us and to the moms who lost a child.
Few in the US will have much knowledge of the Hillsborough disaster. But for those affiliated with Liverpool Football Club it was a moment we will never forget.
Twenty-seven years of waiting is finally over.
It's a long article but it's worth reading. Watch the videos if you have a chance.
If you ever get the chance to watch the 30 for 30 on this incident, please do. I believe it is on Netflix.
Dead at 57.
He's died today, his 79th birthday.
This is some serious business. I suggest reading the whole letter if you have time. Kudos to Tim Cook and his lawyers.
Did a search, can't find a thread.
New teaser out today.
It's been a while since I last posted here. I never thought this day would come that I have to ask this question.
My family and I, we just got our US visas granted today! Yay! We're flying to NY next month and of course, we need to watch a game at the stadium.
So, for a first-timer with no idea at all, please let me know how to get tickets to a game? I'm targetting the May 14 day game. I'd like to get them as early as now too.
Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.
...and they were ugly. :(
Happy Easter to those who celebrate and may you be grateful for all the wonderful things life has to offer!
Time for a positive thread. This was done many years ago on this forum and thought with the season upcoming a good time to do it again. This time every year I do my annual viewing of the Ken Burns series and my collection of baseball movies (you name it I probably have it). What are your favorite baseball movies? And any you don't like?
1) Field of Dreams (one of my favs period)
2) Pride of the Yankees
3) The Natural
5) Major League
One I don't like much: The Babe. I know I...
