6-year-old Coach Drake loses it after ejection

A friend of mine sent me this video by the Kalamazoo Growlers, and it had me laughing so hard that I just had to share the love.  There is, of course, a whole heap of social commentary to be made about how this video represents the sorts of examples we are setting for our kids.  In terms of pure entertainment, meanwhile, it does provide a couple minutes of comic relief.

Sport Chumpions

This isn’t necessarily baseball-specific, but it’s a fun watch for sports fans in general.  This 1941 Looney Tunes cartoon features the hilariously not-so-great of the sports world.


Kicking dust

I sometimes have wondered if the “brawls” that happen in baseball are merely the players’ way of breaking up the routine of daily games and keeping things interesting.  Calvin and Hobbes certainly seem to enjoy the novelty.
