I like to eat the whole peanut, shells and all.
Tommy John surgery is performed on athletes who have overuse injuries in the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). The UCL is located on the inner side of the elbow. It helps to keep the elbow joint in place and prevent dislocation.
I do windows. Unfortunately, I do them every couple of years, which gives the windows plenty of time to get dirty, and even then it is clear that I don't do them very well because I have always considered the job a pane in the glass.
As baseball season gets into full swing, we hear lots of buzz about the closer -- baseball's newest position. Is the newly-minted closer worth the adulation and the money, or is the mystique just a myth?
By all counts, Harwell was all about sharing. You could lean back and relax in the sunshine of his warm voice. He knew the incredible gift of simply chatting to a fan -- or even letting them join him in the booth for an inning or two.
Like many of our cities, Baltimore stopped doing what cities do -- bring diverse people together to establish a common life that ennobles them all. Thus the empty stadium symbolized what happens when democracy fails and the people permit inequality to excuse injustice.
The true meaning of a bar mitzvah. A charitable initiative like the one these boys have created combines their own passions, helps those less fortunate and brings more meaning into their Jewish coming-of-age ritual.

Your kid wants to play sports, and that's a great thing except for this: You were never an athlete and you aren't one now. You might not even watch sports. Now what? Non-athletic sports parents suffer from a double disability
Beyond the occasional shady public funding for their stadiums and mega-museums, contemporary art carries nearly nothing in common with most professional sports. Sports have a complex set of rigid rules privileging merit and a fan culture that mimics elements of nationalism.
Nikolas told me he couldn't wait for baseball season to begin. He loved the game and admitted that he'd never be able to throw as far as the guys on the team. It had been an exciting evening, and for a couple innings, the Twins were catching up. Nikos' homeless friend never showed up, but I hope he'd at least gone to the game.
Springtime means baseball season -- a nice evening out at the ballpark with a hot dog, peanuts, and a cold beverage. We all love a home run -- except when it's against our team, of course. So we here at the Sierra Club decided to mix baseball and politics to make it clear just who's playing on the polluters' team and who's on the side of clean air and clean water protections.
It is imperative that sport teams play the best athletes they have available to win games. The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport strives to emphasize the business value of diversity to sports organizations when they choose their team on the field and in the office.
What I do know is that this coach -- unbeknownst to him -- couldn't have provided a better example of what teamwork is really all about for the boys and girls he was mentoring than that of arriving to the field with his offspring strapped to him.
Both of my daughters had ballet lessons for a year or two when they were younger. But as I think back about it, I never saw a young boy in any of the practices or recitals.
With another baseball season underway, I've been reflecting on the revolution within the game. Since Michael Lewis' Moneyball hit the shelves, baseball analytics departments have become the "thing" in front offices all around the game.
