Technology has completely ruined baseball for me – GolfDigest.com

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

There’s just one superlative this week. It is “Worst Baseball Fan,” and it is me. In 2009, living in Brooklyn, I attended roughly 15 Yankee games, including one in the divisional series (THIS ONE!!) and one in the ALCS. My tactic was to take the 4-train north from my office in midtown, stand on the subway platform at 161st st. in the Bronx, wait for a new train and all…

The Eagles Pulled Off A Ridiculously Elaborate Baseball-Themed TD Celebration – Deadspin

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Famous South Jersey native and baseball player Mike Trout is at the Eagles game today, so the team’s offense performed an impressively elaborate baseball celebration to honor him (and possibly recruit him for the Phillies, who knows). The Eagles are rolling today: Carson Wentz threw for 121 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter as the Eagles built a 21-0 lead against the Cardinals. Wentz should be docked points…

Jack Del Rio: ‘Embarrassing’ that Raiders play on baseball field during first month – CBSSports.com

Saturday, October 07, 2017

This means that for the month or so the two seasons overlap, the Raiders play their home games on a field that includes a baseball diamond….

Every Hot Dog in Major League Baseball, Ranked – Lifehacker

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Image credit: Pexels I didn’t need a survey to tell me that AT&T Park in San Francisco has the best hot dogs in Major League Baseball. I would have likely made that declaration while sitting in some less-superior stadium eating a sub-par dog, but I wouldn’t have had facts (other than my own detailed personal research) to back up that claim. Except now I do. ReviewTrackers recently analyzed 130,000 reviews…
