A crowd of 8,019 showed up at Dodger Stadium Friday night -- miniscule by MLB standards, but respectable for high school baseball. The event was the CIF Southern California Section Division 1 Championship.
One sip of Joltin' Joe was all I could stomach.
At the 2011 trade deadline, the New York Mets almost acquired Brown as the centerpiece in the Carlos Beltran trade instead of Zack Wheeler. Considering the Mets' lack of hitting prospects even then, Brown would have been a welcome addition.
On Memorial Day weekend, our family of four participated in six baseball games! It was such a refreshing change from discussing our nation's politics. Here is a great baseball story that explains why I love Little League Baseball.
While it's unlikely that college baseball will be able to contend with the dominance of football and basketball anytime soon, the market is growing steadily.
The Jews are told they have to spend an additional 40 years wandering in the desert. But was this really a punishment? The answer may make you think twice about what you wish for.
The National Pastime might seem out of synch with the high-end art world. Clean well-lit indoor galleries that serve free wine to an elite client base seems to be the polar opposite of an outdoor stadium overcharging for watered-down beer sold to the masses. But like many a muse, baseball captures the imaginations of plenty of artists and, as some art galleries in Los Angeles are finding out, wealthy art collectors as well.

Met fans have gotten to a point where they'd be thrilled just to have a .500 season, let alone a post season. Yet management allows the Mets to get worse and worse and to fans it appears they don't seem to care.

The Mets' farm system is relatively weak in terms of natural second basemen (i.e. Daniel Muno and Branden Kaupe), but the front office has prudently pushed offense-first Wilmer Flores to learn the position at Triple-A this season.
It wasn't too long ago that Nate McLouth was one of the more exciting, young outfielders in baseball. In 2008, McLouth-in his fourth major league season-posted a 125 OPS+, 26 HR, and 23 SB campaign for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
There really can be no debate or argument about who has been far and away the most successful pure investor in the past 100 years or may be forever. There have been few fortunes as large as the one amassed by Warren Buffett.
There is a rhythm to the baseball season that fits neatly into the lives of devoted fans of the game. It is nearly religious. Just as you can count on Easter Sunday, Yom Kippur and Kwanzaa popping up on your calendar, you can also count on pitchers and catchers reporting for spring training.
