Year In Review : 1890 Players League In the National League… On Labor Day, the Pittsburgh Alleghenys were swept in a rare triple-header by the home team Brooklyn Bridegrooms 10-9, 3-2 and 8-4. The trio of winning pitchers included Bob Caruthers, Tom Lovett and Adonis Terry. New York Giants slugger Mike Tiernan became the first player ever to hit a Home Run from one ballpark into another after launching a thirteenth inning blast off the Boston Beaneaters' Kid Nichols that traveled over the centerfield wall at the Polo Grounds into the adjacent Brotherhood Park. In the American Association… The Brooklyn Bridegrooms and Cincinnati Reds moved from the American Association to the National League who had also dropped the Washington Senators. The American Association's Kansas City franchise folded, but the Rochester Hop Bitters, Syracuse Stars, Toledo Maumees and Brooklyn Gladiators were added in their place. Ledell "Cannonball" Titcomb tossed a 7-0 no-hitter against the Syracuse Stars on September 15th. In ...

They just told a story about how Derek Jeter basically saved the National *** League Museum in Kansas City. dope
Come every March, every baseball fan in existence is excited about the possibilities of the coming year. Even on the North Side of Chicago, the saying after every baseball season goes something like this: "Wait until next year." Teams from Kansas City to Pittsburgh have the chance to change their persona and start anew. Kansas City hadn't won 86 games since the 1994 season and did so this year, in a year whose off-season was seen as being marred by a trade that many didn't want. Baseball can do that. The Pirates hadn't made the post-season since 1992, had been above .500 at the All-Star break two seasons in a row to only finish 18 and 14 games under .500, then won 94 games this year to play in the Wild Card game as the third best team in the National League and 5th best team in baseball. As a Royals' fan (second), it was so heartening to see hope for that team last long into the summer and slightly into the fall for the first time since I moved to Kansas City back in the fall of 2004. Hope can be seen in ...
Today in Baseball History -- Oct. 3 -- from Mary Landers ... 1919 -- Cuban native Adolfo Luque becomes the first player from Latin America to appear in a World Series. In Game 3 of the Fall Classic, 'the Pride Of Havana' pitches a scoreless eighth inning for the Reds in a 3-0 loss to the White Sox at Comiskey Park. 1924 -- At Philadelphia’s Baker Bowl, the Kansas City Monarchs of the *** National League beat the Eastern Colored League’s Hilldale Giants (PA), 6-2, in the opening game of the first Colored World Series.

I love Kansas City. I love everything about the city: the vinegary, saucy barbecue, the progressive yet rooted jazz, the huge array of fun things to do, and the relentlessly friendly people. I love everything, however, except the sports fans. Now I'm not at all against Kansas City sports. Royals fans, who love and know their baseball, deserve a much better team than they get year after year, and the Chiefs just resemble a Greek tragedy of football. Sporting Kansas City shows promise, but then, that's what they say about the Royals every year. Al Hrabosky, who pitched for both the Royals and Cardinals, got it exactly wrong on the Cardinals telecast today (which would not be the first time that happened). He said, "This can't really be called a rivalry. It's friendly, it's fun, and true Royals fans are always cheering for the Cards to do well in the National League." Except not. Kansas City sports fans, of whose ilk I am too familiar because of enormous amounts of time spent in the metro and longtim ...
On This Day In Baseball History: 1884 - The Altoona Mountain City club is admitted to the Union Association as its seventh club, leaving Lancaster as the only franchise in the Inter-State League. 1887 - New York Giants shortstop and team captain John Ward thinks that the open sale of players has gone too far. "I wouldn't play in Kansas City under any circumstances," he says, but a club could force him to play there or not play at all. 1890 - Sam Rice is born in Morocco, Indiana. A quick outfielder with a great arm, Rice will lead the American League in hits twice, in stolen bases once, and collect at least 200 hits on six occasions, while finishing in the top ten in batting average eight times. Rice will gain election to the Hall of Fame in 1963. 1903 - Nicholas Young remains National League president when Albert Spalding bows out of the battle. 1920 - The Chicago Cubs give his unconditional release to Lee Magee after having learned from him a week ago that he has been betting against his team. Magee will ...
On this day in civil rights history, Rube Foster founded the National Association of Professional Baseball Clubs, also known as the *** National League, the first stable, all-black professional baseball league in the United States. Foster is recognized as the father of the *** Leagues. Foster was born in Texas in 1878. He was an enormous man and an outstanding athlete who excelled as a baseball pitcher, perhaps one of the greatest in the game. But with professional sports segregated, he could play only in exhibitions against white teams. He soon became manager-coach of the Chicago and later American Giants, and also played for the team. He was an innovative pitcher and baseball thinker. Managers of white teams would attend his games to observe his strategies. He formed the National *** League in 1920 in Kansas City. It operated in the South and in the Midwest, with eight member teams. As its president, Foster ran the league the same way he ran his team, with total authority. In 1923 an East ...
February 13, 1920, a coalition of owners led by Rube Foster met in Kansas City to form the *** National League, the first stable, lasting league for African-American players. During its existence, the NNL was home to some of the greatest players who tragically never got to play in the Majors.
On This Day In Baseball History: 1898 - Cincinnati Reds president John Brush dismisses criticism of his proposed league resolution to punish players who use vulgar and obscene language on the field, saying newspaper criticism is the result of ignorance. 1920 - Officials organize the *** National League in a meeting held at the YMCA in Kansas City, Missouri. Spearheaded by league founder Rube Foster, the NNL will become the most successful of all *** Leagues ventures and will last until the late 1940s. 1934 - The National League loans the Cincinnati Reds $50,000 at 4.5% interest. Powel Crosley, who bought the team 10 days ago, will repay Cincinnati's debt in full by 1938. 1935 - Signing a contact written in French, Washington Senators outfielder Gus Dugas, who was born in Quebec, is acquired by the Montreal Royals of the International League. 1953 - The Philadelphia Athletics change the name of Shibe Park to "Connie Mack Stadium", in honor of their longtime owner and manager. Mack was part-owner and ma ...
On This Day In Baseball History: 1878 - Fredrick W. Thayer patents the catcher's mask. He is the captain of Harvard University Baseball Club. 1880 - The Boston Red Caps cut the price of season tickets from $14 to $12 after the team failed to win its third straight National League pennant last season. 1885 - The Western League is officially formed, with Indianapolis, Kansas City, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Toledo and Omaha as the original clubs. It will last until June 23rd. 1903 - Charles (Chick) Hafey is born in Berkeley, California. Hafey will make his Major League debut in 1924 with the St. Louis Cardinals. During a 13-year career with the Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds, Hafey will hit .317, including a National League batting crown with .349 in 1931, and will be part of two World Series championships in 1926 and 1931. Hafey will enter the Hall of Fame in 1971. 1912 - In a change of outfielders, the Boston Braves send Mike Donlin to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Vin Campbell. After one season with Pittsburgh, D ...
Non-political diversion very much needed. The American League's Philly A's were my Dad's favorite team until they left for Kansas City in 1954. I love reading about the exploits of this formerly iconic American League team which typically overshadowed the far more lackluster Phillies (particularly during the A's stunning glory days of 1902-1914 & 1929-1931). In fact, even though the Phils have had almost 60 additional years to catch up, the long-gone A's still hold more American League penants & World Series triumphs won while in Philadelphia than their still Philly-based former cross-town National League rivals.
You have to love Major League Baseball. Last season their National league M.V.P. H.G.H. Brownie( Ryan Braun) tested postive for P.E.D.S ( Performance-enhancing drugs) He had just signed a 5 year 105 million $ contract extension earlier last season. His case against the positive drug test " It was the collectors fault, he didnt ship promptley enough" He throws some dude who has to collect *** for a living underneath the bus. Now Melky Caberera who the Yankees traded to Atlanta, Atlanta released, signed by Kansas City and traded to San Fransico. His best batting average in is career was 305. Now at the age of 28 He is hitting 346 is second only to Andrew Mccutchen at 359, and is a free ageant at the end of the year. Wha tis the incetive not to do P.E.D.s. Stay classy MLB
So the American League Angels are called The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Then, should the National League Dodgers be called The Brooklyn Dodgers of Los Angeles? I got one better; the Philadelphia Athletics of Oakland via Kansas City?

John talks to Buster Posey, Chipper Jones, and Pablo Sandoval following the National League's 8-0 win in Kansas City.
Just had the three of the greatest days of my life. I went to All-Star Sunday and saw Wil Myers of the Omaha Stormchasers hit some RBIs in the All-Star Futures Game and Team USA won. George Brett batted for the first time in nearly twenty years with Bo Jackson and Bill Self hit a Home Run in the Celebrity Softball game. Watching the Home Run Derby was very fun, and I'm glad to see Robinson Cano not win. My sister helped me get *** Perry's, Rollie Fingers', and Ferguson Jenkins' autographs. Also got Fred Patek's and Manny Mota's autograph and saw this year's World Series trophy at Fanfest. Not only that, I was lucky to get a ticket to the All-Star Game and saw many players that have never been to Kauffman Stadium, like Chipper Jones, Stephen Strausberg, and Clayton Kershaw. It was a great three days in Kansas City. The only downsides were Billy Butler wasn't in the Home Run Derby and the National League beat the American League.
1 and 1 now to Matt Wienders here is the pitch from Jonathan Papelbon a high fly ball into right field Jay Bruce is there to make the catch and for the 3rd straight year the National League has won the All Star Game by a score of 8 to 0. Kansas City did an excellent of putting on a show during All Star week.

8-0? Really? With an average All Star age of 13 1/2, the National League is positioned to dominate for the next decade, while the American League trots out NL has-beens like Prince Fielder. Hey, why not suit Cecil up? And MLB doesn't have the (base)balls to name Pablo the MVP. No. Slap host city, Kansas City, in the face by naming estranged Royal Melky Cabrera the MVP. No slight to the Melkman, but Pablo is the one who put the game on ice. But that might offend New York fans. They really wanted to see David Wright flail a few more times-so exciting!. And I missed TDB for this.
If there’s anything fans will remember about the eighth inning of Tuesday night’s All-Star Game in Kansas City, it’ll probably be seeing flamethrowers Craig Kimbrel and Aroldis Chapman light up the radar gun one after the other for the National League .
Watching Atlanta's closer, Craig Kimbrel, throwing 100 mile per hour fastballs in the MLB All-Star Game. Now the National League is bringing out Cincinnati Reds fast baller, Aroldis Chapman, to close out the rest of the bottom of the 8th, hurling 100-plus MPH. With a 90 MPH fastball, the batter cannot see the ball from 5 feet out of the plate. Batters probably lose sight of the ball 10 feet out with these guys. Now if Chapman just had good control. National League leads 8 to 0 in the bottom of the 8th in Kansas City. Carlos Gonzalez struck out and hit out, and sits the bench. Gotta smile.
In 1920 the NNL *** National League) was formed after a meeting at the Paseo YMCA in Kansas City. They were not permitted to play in MLB. Years later, over 150 of the NLL players (Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson, etc) became stars of the MLB and helped reshape the game of baseball. Though our race history has many shameful moments, may our future be bright with the hope that all men are created in the image of God. And may the Church be a force to continue upholding and modeling that kingdom value! - Glenn Burris

Let's ger ready for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Tonight at 5:00pm on FOX 11. This year in Kansas City. Let's go National League for the 3rd year in a row.
Kansas City showed the world its true colors last night. The amount of disrespect those people showed Robinson Cano and his father last night was just down right terrible. I can't stand the Yankess but the you don't single one man out because he didn't select some beat up has been ( Billy Butler ) to be in the Derby. Kansas City you should be ashamed of yourselves. On a positive side though it was great to see that 4 White Sox made it to the All-Star Game. ( Konerko,Peavy,Dunn,Sale ) great job. Go American League beat the Old Timers from the National League. That way the World Series will have to come through Chicago. Oh Yeah. Talk soon. Peace and Love.
Wow! I can't believe what this day will bring. Last night my two sons, both of them well-bred lads, presented me with two tickets to tonight's MLB All-Star Game right here in Kansas City. I was stunned. I imagine that many of you know that I am a pretty serious baseball fan. This is probably the last such game I will ever have opportunity to see in my town. (I could bring up the possibility of a World Series, but that gets into a whole different level of discussion.) If I am still occupying space on this earth the next time such an event comes to KC I will be living at the Home, rocking on the porch, and drooling onto a strategically placed bib. So this is the time. I do not know how this acquisition was made. Jeff lives in Chicago now so I'm not ruling out Mob connections. But here's the thing. My family knows what a thrill it will be for me to attend this game and they also know I am a tad frugal. They have other terms to describe it. This is masked as a combination Fathers Day and birthday gift, but i ...
The Major League Basebal All-Star Game is tonight at Kansas City... "Goin' to Kansas City, Kansas City, here they come..." :) Now, since my beloved (and beleaguered) Houston Astros are a National League team for this last year, I'll be for the Nationals. Rangers fans, it should not matter who wins from your perspective. Last year, those Dirty Birds who beat you should have gone down, down, down, even though St. Louis had the home field advantage for the World Series. Your team and not they, should be defending World Series champions... Play ball!!:)

That's just great for NY in general: Mets to host 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field Midsummer Classic to be played in Queens for first time since '64 By Anthony DiComo / MLB.com 5/16/2012 12:12 PM ET New York -- From the Polo Grounds to old Yankee Stadium, Ebbets Field and Shea Stadium, New York has hosted more MLB All-Star Games than any other city. Next year at Citi Field, the Big Apple will do it again. With Commissioner Bud Selig, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and team owner Fred Wilpon in attendance, MLB announced Wednesday that the Mets will host the 2013 All-Star Game on July 16, 2013, becoming the city's ninth Midsummer Classic, but the first in Queens since 1964. "The Mets have been great; this is really a very, very happy day," Selig said. "I know for the citizens of this great city and state, they will enjoy this immensely." New York last hosted the game in 2008 at old Yankee Stadium. This summer's game is scheduled for July 10 in Kansas City. Now, one of the National League's newest jew ...

Today In Baseball History: 1903 In the first game of what will become one of baseball's fiercest rivalries, the Pilgrims beat the Highlanders at Boston's Huntington Avenue Grounds, 6-2. The teams will change their names, but the intense competition between the Red Sox and Yankees will become legendary. 1940 The Brooklyn Dodgers become the first National League team to fly when they travel by air to Chicago from St. Louis. 1957 Indians' hurler Herb Score suffers a season-ending injury when he's struck in the face by Yankee Gil McDougald's line drive. The 1955 Rookie of the year, who won 20 games in his sophomore season last year, never regains his winning form, although the southpaw will blame a torn tendon in his pitching arm, and not the horrific accident on the mound for his lack of achievement.(I remember this very well) 1957 Vic Power becomes the first modern Major Leaguer to hit both a leadoff and walkoff Home Run in the same game.
