“All the Way,” Eddie Vedder

Here’s an awesome tribute to the Chicago Cubs by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder.  The accompanying video was originally produced in 2008, during the team’s playoff stint.

This day in baseball: MVP Jeter

On October 26, 2000, Derek Jeter was named World Series MVP, making him the first player to win both All-Star Game MVP and World Series MVP in the same season.  Jeter hit .409 in the World Series that year, including two doubles, a triple, and a couple of home runs to help the Yankees win four games to one over the New York Mets.
