To all the dads out there. I hope your day is a good one.

Infographic: Catching: A History

I haven’t had a chance to do much more than skim all the information on this infographic, but what I’ve noted so far is certainly fascinating.  Click on the image below for a (slightly) larger version — though even then, you might still need to zoom in on it.

Memorial Day 2018

I hope everyone has a good, relaxing, and reflective Memorial Day!


Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope all the wonderful moms out there get spoiled rotten today!


Infographic: Craig Biggio HoF

I came across this graphic quite accidentally, but now that I’ve found it, I’m thinking it’d be fun and interesting to see if there are more like it for other Hall of Famers.  Craig Biggio never won a World Series with the Astros (though they appeared in one in 2005), but he was still a player worth talking about.  Biggio was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015.

Happy Star Wars Day!

Here’s an ad from 2013 for the Japan Pacific League that calls upon the Force that is the Star Wars universe.  Do you think it counts as cheating if Vader uses the Force when he’s at the plate?

May the Force be with us all, both on and off the field!


Davidson at the K

I wake up this morning, and one of the first things I see on Twitter is this:

Quite the accomplishment for Matt Davidson, for sure, especially when you consider that Kauffman Stadium is not the most home run-friendly ballpark in the league.

As a Royals fan, however, this is the kind of statistic one dreads to see making headlines.

Davidson has had three multi-home run games already this season, and all three of those games took place — you guessed it — at Kauffman Stadium.  And since the Royals and the White Sox are division rivals, Davidson will have six more games at the K (including today’s doubleheader) to add to his record.

Royals fans already knew this would be a long season.  Now we’re just throwing salt on the wound.
