On September 29, 1954, Willie Mays, centerfielder for the New York Giants, makes an amazing over-the-shoulder catch of a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians first baseman Vic Wertz to rob Wertz of extra bases in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series.
Living in the New York area, all I've seen on the news for the past 2 days is Derek Jeter leaving the Yankees. I watched some of the footage and was surprised to see people crying and "thanking the Captain". What exactly are you thanking? It seems nobody thanks him for the few charities and causes he supported so exactly why. A guy that was paid millions of dollars to play a game? Did winning the world series actually do anything for the world? There are millions of people more deserving of such a "thank you" than a retiring baseball player. Who do you thank?
Barring rain, tonight is Derek Jeter's last game ever at Yankee Stadium. It's also the first game he playing in the Bronx that has no implications on his team's playoff chances...ever. Jeter was the model captain, the king of clutch (Shout out to you Chris Wayland) and perhaps most importantly the ideal citizen. New York is a city defined by many historic buildings, events and figures, but in my mind no one has embodied the city in the past two decades in the way Jeter has. Perhaps nothing expresses his leadership qualities as much as the fact that in his 20 year career with the Yankees he was never once ejected from a game. Derek Jeter never won a regular season MVP, but nonetheless was the driving force behind many of the Yankees greatest playoff pushes and subsequent World Series titles. Of all the great sports plays in history, few stand out to me like the famous flip against the A's and his Mr. October homerun, a homerun that was ultimately futile in the Yankees pursuit of the World Series against th ...

Nationals defeat Diamondbacks 3-2 on Anthony Rendon's walk off RBI in the bottom of the 9th, extending their winning streak to 9 games. At 72-53, the first-place Nats are now 7 games ahead of the Braves in the National League East. There is magic in the air here in Washington. I can think of only two comparable times and teams: in 1969 when the New York "Miracle" Mets went on to win the World Series, and in 2008 when the New Orleans Saints went on to win the Superbowl. Stay tuned!
1921; After Judge Hugo Friend denies a motion to quash the indictments against the Major League Baseball players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series, a trial begins with jury selection. The Chicago White Sox players, including stars Shoeless Joe Jackson, Buck Weaver, and Eddie Cicotte, subsequently became known as the "Black Sox" after the scandal was revealed. The White Sox, who were heavily favored at the start of the World Series, had been seriously underpaid and mistreated by owner Charles Comiskey. The conspiracy to fix the games was most likely initiated by first baseman Chick Gindil and small-time gambler Josep Sullivan. Later, New York gambler Arnold Rothstein reluctantly endorsed it. The schemers used the team's discontent to their advantage: Through intermediaries, Rothstein offered relatively small sums of money for the players to lose some of the games intentionally. The scandal came to light when the gamblers did not pay the players as promised, thinking that they had no recourse. But w ...

If Marcella had been with me in Houston last week, she would have turned into a pillar of ice. Whether you are in a hotel or a car or a restaurant, the air conditioning is insanely fierce. Marcella was easily chilled and hated it. When we left Venice to return to the States, we chose to live in Florida, yet even there she was rarely without a loose wool vest or cashmere shawl slipped over her. We had been in Houston several times in the past to tour for one her cookbooks, which left no time to indulge in personal interests. There had been one small exception in 1986, when Marcella would allow no business to prevent her from watching the Mets, when they beat the Red Sox in the World Series. She had become a passionate baseball fan the year we were married, shortly after her arrival in New York. She hadn’t yet begun to work and with no Italian-speaking friends, she spent her days alone at home. To help time pass for her, I had explained how baseball worked and taught her some of the vocabulary. The first ...
Born in St. Louis, he signed with New York in part because the hometown Cardinals considered his boyhood friend Joe Garagiola to be a better prospect. He broke in with the Yankees after serving in World War II and soon made his mark despite being surrounded by such well-known teammates as Joe DiMaggio and then Mickey Mantle. Berra received MVP votes in fifteen consecutive seasons and was behind the plate for Don Larsen’s Perfect Game in the 1956 World Series. A notorious bad-ball hitter, Berra had more home runs than strikeouts in a season five times and in 1950 struck out just twelve times in 597 at bats. “Yogi had the fastest bat I ever saw,” Héctor López said. “He could hit a ball late—that was already past him, and take it out of the park. The pitchers were afraid of him because he’d hit anything, so they didn’t know what to throw.” As a fielder, even though there wasn’t much emphasis on the running game during his era, Berra excelled defensively as well as at handling pitchers. He ...

36 - First given to Mel Queen (not the former Blue Jays coach) in 1942, this seemed reserved for bench players and back of the rotation guys for half a century. The great Johnny Mize was the most noteworthy of these. But in 1995, the Yankees traded a prospect named Marty Janzen to Toronto for David Cone. The hired gun found a home in the Bronx. He won more games for the Mets than he did for the Yankees - he won his Cy Young in Kansas City - he won his first World Series in Toronto. But he won several more rings in New York, pitched a Perfect Game, and will probably be best remembered as a Yankee. BELTRAN!!!
Was this George Bush's biggest success as president? A few weeks after 9/11, he was preparing to throw out the first pitch for game 3 of the World Series. He was a little nervous because back in April, for opening day in Milwaukee, he had bounced one. To encourage him, Derek Jeter said: " Don't bounce it, this is New York, they'll boo you." The brave president took the mound and threw a perfect strike. The proudest moment of his presidency.
Babe Ruth's pocket watch from the 1923 World Series sold at an auction in New York on Saturday for $717,000
TAMPA, Fla. -- Jacoby Ellsbury walked into the Yankees clubhouse, filled with all that gear with pinstripes and the famous interlocking "NY." He walked over to his locker in the back, the one used last spring by former Boston Red Sox teammate Kevin Youkilis. Ellsbury was in the den of his former team's enemy, at least in the view of many Boston fans. But for now, with games that count more than a month away, the speedy center fielder still gets preferential treatment after helping the Red Sox win another World Series. He found that out when he went to a deli before heading to the ballpark Tuesday. "Red Sox fan gave me some free breakfast this morning down here in Tampa," he said happily. "There's still the love there. It's nice to see." Boston made no attempt to re-sign Ellsbury, a 2011 All-Star who led the majors with 52 steals despite a broken foot late last season. He hit .298 with nine homers and 53 RBIs. Needing to rebuild its batting order, New York agreed in December to a $153 million, seven-year c ...

Lucchino: Yanks' signings fuel rivalry Gordon Edes [ARCHIVE] ESPNBoston.com | January 24, 2014 BOSTON -- Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino chuckled when asked what he thought of the Yankees spending nearly $500 million on new players this winter. "It's like 'Back To The Future,' is my sense," he said. "I've seen this movie before. "Anything that can be done that increases the intensity of the rivalry, as this certainly does, I think is positive --as long as it doesn't go so far as to give them the advantage." Lucchino said he and fellow Sox owners John W. Henry and Tom Werner are just as committed to winning as the Yankees, but not when it means "crazy expenditures that might be commonplace in New York." Lucchino, who was at the Boston Baseball Writers dinner Thursday, was reminded that the last time the Yankees reloaded in similar big-dollar fashion, after the 2008 season, signing CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira (a player highly coveted by the Sox), they won the World Series in 2009 after missing th ...
Monday night saw the last regular season sporting event at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Good riddance to that dump. In case you were keeping track, that makes: two World Series, one earthquake and NO WS championships for the place. If you have never heard the story of how Horace Stoneham, the then owner of the New York baseball Giants in the mid fifties, came to build a ballpark in one of the worst locations for a ballpark ANYWHERE on the West Coast: Walter O'Malley, the carpetbagger who owned the then Brooklyn Dodgers, wanted to avail himself of the most sweetheart of all sweetheart deals EVER, for a new stadium and all of land which made up the surrounding ravine. But he realized the other National League team owners would NEVER allow just one team to relocate across the entire country. Not when the closest team to LA played in St Louis. Certainly not with the rapidly escalating cost of transporting an entire ball club from east to midwest, let alone to the West Coast. So O'Malley began to whisper ...
"Do you smell that?" What? "As soon as we got to New York it smelled like failure and lack of a World Series Championship."
AP Sources: Beltran, Yanks Agree At $45M, 3 Years by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS December 07, 2013 3:29 AM NEW YORK (AP) — Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York, this time to the Bronx. The All-Star outfielder and the Yankees agreed Friday to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. Beltran's agreement came hours after Second Baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle and on the same day pitcher Hiroki Kuroda agreed to return for 2014. Beltran's deal was detailed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The agreement was first reported by the New York Daily News. Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat — especially in ...

this is what you call perspective: "In Ellsbury’s case, there is even a new story to replace the old one about Red Sox who went off to New York to win their rings. Nowadays, Red Sox go to New York, World Series rings in tow, to get old. "
Red Sox manager John Farrell called the departure of Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yankees a jolt after the thrill of winning the World Series. But it was not unexpected. Ellsbury had steadfastly refused all entreaties to sign an extension with the Red Sox and entered free agency at a time when baseball is awash in revenues. That Ellsbury went to New York was a bit of a surprise. But if not the Yankees, it would have been another team. “When you get into free agency with a player of Jacoby’s caliber, you know going in that there’s probably a handful of spots where he could end up,” general manager Ben Cherington said Wednesday. “Certainly New York is always going to be one of those potential spots. “We wish Jacoby well. He was obviously a really good player here in Boston. During the time he was here, he was a big part of two World Series teams. We would have loved to keep him. But we felt like there was an area, a range, we were willing to go to and the market just got past that.” That range was a ...

Americans have a short and forgiving historical memory. Most can remember last year's Super Bowl champs and World Series winners, but few seem able to remember a $1 billion scandal involving the American Red Cross following 9/11, America's most disastrous terrorist or military attack on its homeland. The details are brief. The Red Cross responded to 9/11 by opening a few shelters to which no one came; tried to trace missing persons but were pushed aside when the World Trade Center site was dubbed a crime scene and police and FBI took over identification of missing persons; and, served coffee and donuts to rescue workers at the World Trade Center site only to be accused of charging for them. (It later paid Daniel Bouley, New York's star chef, to cook for them after the news about charging for coffee was made public.) The Red Cross' own 9/11 Liberty Fund indeed shows only $336,000 in US or state government reimbursement for what little it did do as a "first responder," a designation equal to police, fire an ...

Past and Present Kings & Queens Effa Manley was born on this date in 1900. An African-American business entrepreneur, Manley was the only female owner in the history of *** Leagues. Manley was from Philadelphia, and rarely discussed her heritage, and most people assumed she was a light-skinned Black. Young Effa was raised in a household with a Black stepfather and Black half-siblings. After graduation from high school in Philadelphia, she moved to New York to work in the millinery business. She met Abe Manley, a man 24 years older than her, at the 1932 World Series at Yankee Stadium. They married on June 15, 1935. Abe had money through a number of successful investments in real estate and in "numbers banking," or racketeering. Together, they started a *** League team in Brooklyn, in 1935, naming the team the Eagles. The Eagles played in Ebbets Field, yet were unable to compete with the Brooklyn Dodgers fans, and the Manleys moved the team to survive financially. They bought the Newark Dodgers, a Black ...

NEW YORK TELEGRAPH October 8, 1922   Buster Keaton Can Smile and Yawn, Too, If He Wishes Gertrude Chase       A small dark man stepped from the elevator at the Hotel Ambassador looking as solemn as an owl, which is the old-fashioned way of saying as solemn as Buster Keaton, for it was none other than the man without a smile. He followed us into the reception room and sat down with the deliberation of a patient setting himself in a dentist's chair. Then he surprised us with a smile that would rank highly with any we have ever seen. "You really can smile,"   we exclaimed, and realized at once that the remark was in the class with the one made upon meeting twins and saying, "How often you must be mistaken for each other." Buster did not reply, he suppressed a yawn and taking our cure, we asked him about New York night life.   "Terrible," he answered. "I haven't missed a night at the theatre. Then there are the races and now the World Series, no wonder I'm under weight. We are seeing as many plays as we ...
Kenyans Geoffrey Mutai and Priscah Jeptoo won New York City Marathon titles Sunday as elite runners returned to the Big Apple a year after Hurricane Sandy wiped out the race and seven months after the Boston Marathon bombings. Mutai, who also won the 2011 New York crown, captured the men's title in an unofficial time of 2hrs 8mins, 23secs while Jeptoo, the reigning London Marathon champion who finished second at last year's London Olympics, came from behind to win in an unofficial time of 2:25.07. The 43rd edition of the 26.2-mile (42.2km) showdown included more than 48,000 runners from 115 nations competing in cool and windy conditions for a $100,000 top prize with a backdrop of tightened security in the wake of twin tragedies. Three people were killed by bombs planted near the finish line of the Boston Marathon last April, making "Boston Strong" a catchphrase to inspire comebacks, including a World Series baseball crown for a Boston Red Sox club that was last in its division in 2012. "What occurred in B ...

Stayed up last night after the game to see the tribute to Tim Mccarver who is retiring from the FOX World Series broadcast team. What a disappointment. I guess FOX thought only Cardinal and Red Sox fans would watch to the end (given the ratings for the Series, why would they think otherwise). They showed World Series highlights from his playing days with the Cardinals. No mention of the other teams he played for. No mention that he was activated by the Phillies in Sept 1980 to become the 11th player in MLB history to play in 4 decades. No mention that his broadcast career started in Philly or of all the years spent as a Mets, then as a Yankees broadcaster. I've always felt he dumbed things down for national audiences. His best work was done when he was speaking to the knowledgeable and passionate fans in Philly and New York. Shame on FOX for not doing it right.
Ok, just to clarify something...I am a Yankees fan. Always have been. But when the Tigers are playing any team except for New York, I am rooting for them. And so the obvious team for me to root for in this World Series would be any team but the Red Sox, right? Especially if the Yankees are your team. Normally that would be true. But this is definitely not a normal year. Many things have gone differently than expected and some have brought pain. The most significant thing to happen was the passing of our brother Robert James McCrath...AKA...Wally, Bob, Heavy B, B-3, and whatever other nickname you all may have bestowed upon him. Bob was as big a fan of Boston as anyone I know and in fact, when we were younger and I was searching for baseball cards of Thurman Munson and Bucky Dent and the likes and he was celebrating his Jim Rice cards and Fred Lynn or Yaz cards and being the best Boston Ambassador in all of Barry County. My team won most of the showdowns and so I was the one always gloating. But I'm not gl ...
The 1960 World Series pitted the NL Champs, the Pittsburgh Pirates against The Yankees of New York, champions of the AL. Pittsburgh was the first modern National League Champion in 1901. However championships in Pittsburgh were few and far between in 1960. Their last pennant was in 1927 when they were defeated in the World Series by these same Yankees. The Yankees had a much different history, they played in 8 of the last World Series. The 1960 World Series was one of the most lopsided fall classics with Yankees overwhelming Pittsburgh in total runs scored as well as base hits. Gm 1 Pgh 6, NY 4. Gm 2 NY 16, Pgh 3.

Today in Baseball History -- Oct. 17 -- from Mary Landers ... 1960 -- At the Sheraton Blackstone Hotel in Chicago, the National League owners vote to admit Houston and New York making it the first structural change in the Senior Circuit since the turn of the century.

An invitation to foreign friends: Adopt the St. Louis Cardinals as your American Baseball team. I realize that Baseball may be obscure, but it can be an interesting game with a rhythm all its own. Like other sports, to enjoy it, it pays to embrace, follow, and root for a team. May I recommend the St Louis Cardinals. Although hailing from the mid-sized Mid Western city of St. Louis, Missouri, the Cardinals are one of the stories franchises in Major League Baseball, second only to the astronomically wealthy New York Yankees in World Series Championships. The Cardinals have a rich history, and remain a major power in baseball due to a large successful constellation of minor league "farm clubs" which develop players, excellent scouting, and a fanatical fan base which helps the team compete (and often dominate) teams from giant "world cities" such as New York, Chicago, and Los Angels. The Cardinals are once again in the National League Championship Series, one last stage before the inter-league World Series. T ...
The Cubs fans maybe got their hopes up too much of signing future Hall Of Fame manager, Joe Girardi who has won a World Series in New York with the Yankees.

Rumors going around however of signing former Baltimore Oriole, Cal Ripken Jr. Wouldn't that be nice?

The Alcoholic Pacas open their season on Monday Morning at Home, in New York's Citi Field vs. a NY team from NL East, who are based in New Yankee Stadium. NY;s Owner has a Hall Of Fame Rating, but has a .406 Winning Pct. and no Championships. AP is in NL Central, a Division featuring highly touted Owners and Pitcher-friendly ball parks. Houston, based in the Astrodome, is conducted by the Owner whose Houston team edged my Eggshell Kabuki recently in a 7-game World Series. That was his 86th Championship. Now he has 87. San Francisco plays at AT&T Park. The SF Owner has a Hall Of Fame rating and 42 Championships. My HOF rating and 2 Championships, at least, measures well compared to Seattle. That Owner has no Championships and a Pro Owner's rating. Seattle's Safeco Field edges the Astrodome as the stingiest park in the Division.
My last night in New York. Thought I would finish my stay with a couple of New York icons. A game of baseball at Yankees stadium and a trip to the top (well, 86th floor of 102) of the Empire State Building. The game was ok (I am not a huge baseball fan). It was exciting at the end as the Yankees scored 2 runs in the last inning (bottom of the 9th) to win 3 to 2 and the crowd went crazy! The Yankees are missing a couple of stars at the moment, their captain Derek Jeter and Alex Rodrigues (A Rod) so their form hasn't been great, well not for the Yankees anyway. The most successful team in history with 27 World Series wins! The atmosphere was fantastic. From the moment you walk out of the subway at 161st St and onto the concourse of Yankees stadium you can really feel that you are in a place of great sporting tradition. Being a lover of sport it was a privilege to visit the the home of one of the most famous sporting teams in the world! Although you do get a little over the American parochialism, the playing ...

5 things to know about baseball on July Fourth By The Associated Press: 1. GEHRIG'S FAREWELL: Delivering one of the most hallowed speeches in sports history, Lou Gehrig spoke between games of a New York Yankees doubleheader with the Washington Senators on July 4, 1939. It came two weeks after he retired, having been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Gehrig played only eight games that season, driving in one run and hitting .143. The ''Luckiest Man'' speech has been played countless times. --- 2. RAGS' NO-NO: Forty-four years after Gehrig retired, Dave Righetti provided a July Fourth highlight for the Yankees, pitching a no-hitter against rival Boston. It was the first no-hitter by New York since Don Larsen's Perfect Game in the 1956 World Series and the first by a Yankees left-hander since 1917. Righetti got the final out by striking out Wade Boggs, much to the delight of owner George Steinbrenner, who was celebrating his 53rd birthday that day in 1983. ''I did it on the right day, I gue ...

Australian television producers have in recent times hit upon a sure-fire formula to guarantee big ratings. Costume designers are instructed to dress the women in above-the-knee skirts. Make-up artists affix Dennis Lillee-style moustaches - or "mos" - to their male leads. Props departments scour second-hand car yards in search of mint condition Ford Falcons and Holdens from the 1970s. The fashion is for retrospective drama, whether it focuses on the "Puberty Blues" of teenagers coming of age in beach-side suburbs, the publishing wars between media barons like Rupert Murdoch and Kerry Packer, or the birth of World Series cricket, the cradle of so much Australian sporting iconography. Why, even the cult series Prisoner Cell Block H has been revived! Continue reading the main story After nearly seven years in Australia, Nick is leaving to report from New York.

Jackie Robinson glove fetches $373K Darren Rovell ESPN.com | June 3, 2013 A Jackie Robinson-used baseball glove, believed to have been used in the 1955 and '56 World Series, sold for $373,002 in an auction that ended Monday. The auction was run by New York-based Steiner Sports. Despite the buzz surrounding the recently released film "42" about Robinson's life story, the glove didn't break a record for the highest figure paid for a glove at auction. That distinction belongs to a glove that was advertised as the last that Lou Gehrig used, which went for $387,500 in the Sotheby's auction of the collection of famed collector Barry Halper in 1999. Since then, its story has been questioned. Another glove that is believed to have been Gehrig's last resides in the Hall Of Fame. A bat believed to have been used by Robinson in 1956, his final season, sold for $114,000. The Steiner Sports auction also included Mickey Mantle's 1960 contract with the New York Yankees for $60,000; the contract sold for $39,930. Proceed ...

Baseball Birthdays - March 12 ~ Darryl Eugene Strawberry (born March 12, 1962) was a former American Major League Baseball outfielder. Strawberry was well known for his play on the field throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Strawberry was one of the most feared sluggers in the game, known for his prodigious home runs and his intimidating presence in the batter's box with his 6-foot-6 frame and his long, looping swing that elicited comparisons to Ted Williams. During his 17-year career, he helped lead the New York Mets to a World Series Championship in 1986 and the New York Yankees to three World Series Championships in 1996, 1998 and 1999. A popular player during his career, Strawberry was voted to the All-Star Game eight straight times from 1984–1991. Strawberry was formerly an analyst for SportsNet New York. His memoir, Straw: Finding My Way, written in collaboration with author John Strausbaugh, was published on April 28, 2009 by Ecco Press, an imprint of HarperCollins publishers. Strawberry's M ...
TODAY IN HISTORY: Joe Frazier retained his world heavyweight title by beating Muhammed Ali over 15 Rounds Fight of the Century was the promotional nickname given to the first match between champion Joe Frazier (26-0, 23 KOs) and challenger Muhammad Ali (31-0, 26 KOs), held on March 8, 1971 at New York's Madison Square Garden. Each man was guaranteed $2.5 million dollars, the largest single payday for any entertainer or athlete at the time. Tickets to the Garden would be made available to the general public by mail on a first come first served basis. Prices in the arena ranged from $20 for a balcony seat to $150 for ringside. Hundreds of other locations throughout the U.S. and Canada would screen the fight via closed circuit television to fans paying $5 to $15. Interest in the event was incredible. Radio, television, and the print media were filled with stories discussing the upcoming fight. Few athletic events, be it World Series, Super Bowl or World Cup, had come even close to generating the type of exci ...
Locals Fill Out WSOF 2 Fight Card By Staff and Press Reports New Jersey and New York will be well represented at World Series of Fighting 2 in Atlantic City on March 23. The main card, which will be televised by NBC Sports Network, is headlined by veterans Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and will be held at Ovation Hall in the Revel Hotel and Casino. Many of the fighters won’t have to travel far for the event. The undercard includes Toms River’s Kris McCray (8-4) taking on battle-tested Danillo “Indio” Villefort (13-4) of Coconut Creek, Fla., in a middleweight bout. McCray, the former “The Ultimate Fighter 11” finalist and UFC veteran, dropped a split decision to Mike Wade in October, but had won three straight before that. Also on the undercard, Ozzy Dugulubgov (3-1) of Hackensack will go up against undefeated prospect Chris Wade (5-0) of Long Island in a catchweight (160 pounds) bout. No strangers to Atlantic City, the men have fought there nine times (comb ...
Being a Billionaire Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry Don Troop, February 26, The Chronicle of Higher Education Stanford University announced this week that its spring commencement speaker would be Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York. If you saw that one coming, we’d like to know whom you’ve picked to win this year’s World Series. Just two years ago, Stanford was a front-runner in a ballyhooed competition among several universities to build a new applied-sciences campus at the south end of New York City’s Roosevelt Island. Then, in December 2011, Stanford abruptly withdrew its bid, and Mr. Bloomberg announced three days later that the city had selected a partnership between Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology to build the new campus. Anonymous loyalists for New York City and Stanford each blamed the other side for the breakdown in negotiations. Eventually Stanford’s president, John L. Hennessy, went public with his complaints in an interview with The New ...
Torres happy to be back with Giants SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. There are professional athletes who respond to trades by declaring that "it's a business," and there are those who outwardly display their disappointment, even bitterness. Then there is Andres Torres' assessment of the Giants' 2011 deal that shipped him to New York for Angel Pagan, who would play center field on a championship club as Torres struggled for the lowly Mets. "It was a great trade," Torres said excitedly. "Pagan is a great player and a great guy. San Francisco won the World Series again, and (Pagan) was great." That last word was used often by Torres on Tuesday, when pitchers and catchers reported to Scottsdale Stadium for the start of the 2013 season. In a... ~SportsMan

Musial, a Hall Of Famer and one of baseball's greatest hitters, died Jan. 21 at the age of 92 Stan Musial was remembered during a funeral and memorial outside Busch Stadium on Saturday as a Hall Of Famer and a St. Louis icon embraced by generations of fans who never had the privilege of watching him play. Broadcaster Bob Costas, his voice cracking with emotion at times, pointed out during a two-hour Mass that in 92 years of life, Stan the Man never let anyone down. Costas noted that even though Musial, who died Jan. 19, was a three-time NL MVP and seven-time batting champion, the pride of Donora, Pa., lacked a singular achievement. Joe DiMaggio had a 56-game hitting streak, Ted Williams was the last Major Leaguer to hit .400, and Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle soared to stardom in the New York spotlight. Musial didn't quite reach the 500-homer club - he finished with 475 - and played in his final World Series in 1946, ''wouldn't you know it, the year before they started televising the Fall Classic!''

The Ravens, who posted a 12–4 REGULAR season record, became the third WILD CARD team to WIN the Super Bowl and the second in four years. Also, the city of Baltimore had its first Super Bowl title in 30 years and its first championship of any type since the 1983 World Series. The Giants entered the game seeking to go 3-0 in Super Bowls after also finishing the regular season with a 12–4 record. Baltimore ALLOWED only 152 yards of offense by New York (the third lowest total ever in a Super Bowl), RECORDED 4 sacks, and FORCED 5 TURNOVERS. All 16 of the Giants' possessions ended with PUNTS or INTERCEPTIONS, with the exception of the last one which ended when time expired in the game. New York's lone touchdown, a 97-yard kickoff return, was quickly answered by Baltimore on an 84-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff. The Giants became the first team since the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX to not score an offensive touchdown and the third overall (joining those Vikings and the Miami Dolphins in ...

On the 2nd Amendment and Short Stops To a die-hard New York Yankees fan, Bucky Dent might just be the greatest shortstop of all time. A three-time All-Star and a World Series MVP, he helped the Yanks win two World Championships, and more importantly; the mere mention of his name still invokes epithets (which I will not repeat) to the lips of Boston Red Sox fans everywhere. Scooter, eat your heart out. On October 2nd 1978, with two outs and two men on base in the 7th inning, the plucky 5’9” short stop put a 1-1 pitch from Mike Torrez over the Green Monster at Fenway to give the Yankees a lead in what amounted to that year’s one-game AL Division playoff. He did it with a borrowed bat. New York went on to win the game and eventually the World Series that year, with Dent batting .417 for seven RBIs and the Series MVP. That single home run made the list of Baseball’s 25 greatest moments of all time and endeared Bucky Dent to Yankees fans forever. The problem with all this is that any objective vie ...

This Day In Crime History Dec 19, 1986: World Series parachutist sentenced Michael Sergio, who parachuted into Game Six of the 1986 World Series at New York’s Shea Stadium, is fined $500 and sentenced to 100 hours of community service. On October 25, Sergio, a 37-year-old actor and Mets fan, landed on the infield with a "Let’s Go Mets" banner in the first inning of the sixth game between the Mets and the Boston Red Sox. Over 55,000 stadium spectators witnessed the sky diver’s arrival and cheered him on. Sergio, who was quickly removed from the field by police, claimed he was an experienced parachutist who made the jump to show support for the Mets. Prosecutors in Queens, New York, home of Shea Stadium, claimed that Sergio’s actions could have injured fans and players and interrupted air traffic from nearby LaGuardia Airport. They charged him with reckless endangerment and criminal trespassing. Sergio spent a night in jail and was released without bail. On October 27, the Mets came from behind to w ...
Kevin Youkilis to the Yankees? The New York Yankees have signed third baseman Kevin Youkilis to a 1yr/12M deal. So, what do you do, Red Sox Nation? Do you cheer him for the years that he gave you from 2004 to 2010, which included 2 World Series Championships? Or, do you show "no mercy" and boo him for joining the "Evil Empire"? Youkilis, who is a career .283 batter, is undoubtedly being brought in to play third base for New York since Alex Rodriguez is going to be out 4-6 months once he has hip surgery in January. He is a solid defender at third and received his only Gold Glove award at that base in 2007. Did the Yankees make this move because he was the best option? Or did they do it because it could give them a psychological advantage over their rivals, the Boston Redsox? Or both?~JD

The call came at exactly 8 am… be in Trenton NJ by noon tomorrow. Tomorrow night, Hurricane Sandy will likely come on shore in the area, and we don’t want you traveling during the height of the storm. But we need you to be there to begin the response once the winds die down. I had anticipated the call; when you do hurricane emergency response, The Weather Channel is one of your *most visited* bookmarks.

To those who want the 2012 NYC Marathon canceled, You forget the power of sport or just dont understand it. After a tragedy, the last thing that anyone wants to do is mope around. People have spent months and sometimes years preparing for this event. Many of them are running for charties and great causes, many want to compete, many want to accomplsh a goal that was once not thought possible. The NYC Marathon can be that glimmer of happiness and excitement in the wake of tragedy. The 1962 and 86 World Cups greatly united and gave hope to the countries of Chile and Mexico after they had earthquakes which killed 100,000+ people. The emotion of joy that has been repressed by tragedy can be expressed in cheering, applause and jubilation. Like the defining roar of emotion, ecstacy and cheers after Mike Piazza hit a home run in the first baseball game in New York since 9/11 and the way people of the tri-state area rallied around a World Series bound Yankees just 2 months after the attacks.

Also this day in 2009 I was in New York with Dad, getting ready to get on a train to Philly to see game 3 of the World Series. Neither of us had seen a World Series game in person. We got lunch at Reading Terminal Market and had to sit through an hours worth of rain delay, but the game went on as planned, Andy Pettite won, and we went home happy and tired.
(Belated) CONGRATULATIONS to the San Francisco Giants for winning the World Series by crushing the Detroit Tigers. They made Detroit appear to be meek and mild, yet Detroit swept the Yankees! I truly believe - this year - the "Top Four" National League Teams could have defeated Detroit, or New York. This year it appears GREAT to be a San Francisco fan (both the Giants and the 49ers are dominating their respective sports). For a city with unpredictable weather, and one of the highest "cost of living" rates in the USA, it really is amazing they can fill their baseball and football stadiums week-in, and week-out, from March to January. Their fans are rabid, and their Teams produce winners!

The San Francisco Giants are World Series Champions of Major League Baseball AGAIN! They sweep the defending American League Champions, the Detroit Tigers, in the 2012 Fall Classic/World Series with a 4-3 triumph in 10 Innings in Game at Comerica Park in "The Motor City," i.e., Detroit, Michigan! Furthermore, it's San Francisco's 2nd World Series Crown in as many as 3 full years, and overall, the ball club's 7th World Championship Title in the 130th year of existence of the team's franchise history in baseball; the unit's 2nd since their move from New York, aka., "The Big Apple," to the "San Fran" area, aka., "The Bay Area," in 1958! Likewise, the Giants win their final 7 consecutive postseason games, outscoring their opposition, 36-7, en route to their 7th World Series Title in franchise history! They have now also won 6 straight World Series games dating back to the 2010 Fall Classic/World Series while the team was triumphant over the former 2-time American League Champion, Texas Rangers, during its ...
I wonder how Yankees fans feel knowing that random players like Marco Scutaro are a million times more clutch when it counts than any players in New York, especially Granderson and Alex Rodriguez. Giants are the 2012 World Series champs!!! The streets of San Francisco are crazy tonight, time to celebrate in the best city in the country!!!
New York Sportswriters just blamed Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for Detroit being down 0-3 to San Francisco in the World Series...
From Ryan Schuiling: "The last time the National League champion shut out the American League champion in back-to-back World Series games was in 1919, 93 years ago. That year is significant to even the casual baseball fan, as it was the Cincinnati Reds who defeated the Chicago White Sox... in a Series that Eight Men Out decided to lose intentionally, accepting the bribes offered by New York crime syndicate racketeer Arnold Rothstein. So the Detroit Tigers made history tonight. The absolute worst kind of history."
Southpaws Shine On The Left Coast From Elias: Madison Bumgarner joined Barry Zito as the first pair of left-handed pitching teammates to start and win the first two games of a World Series since Ron Guidry and Tommy John did it for the Yankees in 1981 (New York's only wins in its Series loss to the Dodgers).
Top Ten Reasons Why I Am NOT Cheering for the Giants in the World Series: 10) They beat the Cardinals 9) They left New York for California. 8) Tim Lincecum looks like Pee Wee Herman with long hair and it creeps me out. 7) "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" just isn't as catchy as Eye of the Tiger. 6) Barry Bonds. (Yea, I know he doesn't play anymore, but he sort of ruined it) 5) The symbol on their hats looks like the Bizzaro version of the Cards' symbol. 4) The beards of Romo and Wilson are a little too James A. Garfield. 3) San Francisco is the home of Nancy Pelosi. 2) Names like Buster Posey and Hunter Pence make their line up sound like a boy band 1) They won the World Series in 2010.
The 2012 Fall Classic is finally set thanks to the Giants dramatic NLCS comeback against the defending champion Cardinals. Despite San Francisco’s recent exploits, 2012 World Series Betting Odds are favoring the well rested Detroit Tigers to win the championship. The latest MLB Odds have the Tigers listed as a -180 moneyline favorite to take the series. The Giants are a +150 moneyline play to win their second World Series title in the last three years. San Francisco will not have a lot of time to recoup with the NLCS going a full seven games, but it will have the home field advantage in this series. That said, it will need it with Detroit able to use its pitching staff however Skipper Jim Leyland sees fit. The Tigers needed all five games to get past the Athletics in the ALDS, but they made quick work of the Yankees in the ALCS, sweeping New York to wrap up the series on October 18th. Detroit can now send staff ace and reigning Cy Young winner Justin Verlander to the hill two times against the Giants. S ...
Many of you know, but for those who don't, I am a Giants fan. First in New York and then in San Francisco. My first sports memory is my dad being upset that Willie Mays, (the greatest to ever to play the game, and my sports hero then and now) was drafted inthe Army and had to miss part of the 1952 season and all of 1953. I remember his elation at Willie's return to play in 1954 and the World Series victory in 1954. I have been a Giant fan since those times (there was a brief period from August 1972 through the 1973 season when the Giants traded Willie to the Mets that I had a duel allegiance). After Willie's retirement, full time Giants again. The other team my dad rooted for was the Chicago Bears, back in the Rick Casares, Bill George, Eddie Brown days as far back as the 1956 NFL title I remember cheering for the Bears. While other teams have also on the side from time to time been (co-teams) I have always rooted for the Bears. I have cheered and cried through World Series victories in 1954 and 2010, los ...
Normally, since they have New York roots and my dad was a fan of theirs before they moved to San Francisco, I'd root for the SF Giants in the World Series. But I also have a great deal of respect for Tigers' manager Jim Leyland, and they haven't won a World Series since 1984, while the Giants won just two years ago. So I guess I'm pulling for the Tigers this year. But it wouldn't disappoint me if the Giants won.
Facts to encourage every Giants fan: • Since the LCS was expanded to a best-of-seven in 1985, the home team has gone 9-6 in Game 7s. • When a team was ahead 3-1 in a series -- like St. Louis was -- and had to win a Game 7 on the road -- like St. Louis needs to do -- it has lost five of seven games. • The home team has won nine of the past 12 seventh games, all since the addition of a third round of postseason play in 1995. Now the bad news: The Giants are 0-5 in post-season Game 7s, 0-3 since they moved West from New York in 1958. They lost in seven games to St. Louis (boo!) in the 1987 NLCS, and in the World Series, to the Anaheim Angels in 2002, the Yankees in 1962, the Washington Senators in 1924 and the Boston Red Sox in 1912 (the latter of which was actually a Game 8, since Game 1 ended in a 6-6 tie – which is a GREAT trivia question!). Whatever happens, it's been an amazing year to be a Giants fan and a fun run through the NLDS (down 0-2) and NLCS (down 1-3).
Game Seven tonight. Geesh. This Cardinals team is the most enigmatic team ever. In their wins they are averaging 7 runs per game; in their losses, they are averging 1 run per game. Earlier this year, they went to New York for 4 games vs. the Mets and got shut out three in a row, one being a no-hitter by Santanna. Then, they went on a hitting tear. During the season they were sub .500 on the road, sub .500 in one run games, sub .500 in Extra Innings and still managed to get within one game of the World Series. Which team will show up tonight? Need a strong game from Lohse, solid defense (please!!!), some key hits. In nine innings last night, did not get the leadoff man on one time. Credit to Vogelsong, but they must take better at bats tonight. Will be switching between the debate and the game. Wouldn't mind a rainout to cool off the Giants. Not life or death, but nerve wracking. Having flashbacks to LaRussa's first year, 1996. Led the Braves 3 games to 1 in the NLCS and scored exactly 1 run in the last 3 ...
What is wrong with the Yankees? Wow is this story tiresome. I'll tell you what's wrong with them, they ran into a Tigers pitching staff that just dominated them. Let's not forget that the Yankees were the 2nd highest scoring team in the AL. The Tigers' starting rotation posted an ERA of 0.66 against New York, second-lowest ever in a best-of-seven series behind the 0.61 logged by Dave Mcnally, Jim Palmer and Wally Bunker of the 1966 Baltimore Orioles in the World Series against the Dodgers. THAT'S what was wrong with the Yankees.
Congratulations to the Detroit Tigers, the new American League Champions. With the Yankees successfully swept back to New York, it's time to wait for the World Series. Looks like it's going to be against those pesky St. Louis Cardinals. Good Luck!
Breaking news just in : It's official them Detroit Tigers just blew away The New York Yankees. They are getting ready to get back on their brooms and start sweeping through the city. My best friend Teresa A Brintley hometown is Detroit and yes my hometown is New York and i can't stand the New York Yankees never had and never will. Mr.Antroy High what did we talk about? I told you and you wouldn't listen to me. That was a heck of a explosion them Detroit Tigers put on them Yankees. There going to the ship meaning* World Series Bound*!!! Headlines in The New York Daily News and The New York Post will read*Bronx Bombers got burnt out running away from the eye of the tiger*! Congratulations Detroit Tigers. All you New York Yankees fans have those dustpans waiting at Yankee Stadium right along with the brooms. Where will The New York Yankees trip be after the World Series? Oops my bad you lost! THE New York Giants ARE WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH ME MISS. LINDA LARISA TOMS.:^):^):^)

Tonight's Game 4 could be a World Series clinching spot for the Tigers, if they beat CC Sabathia. New York has no Alex Rodriguez or Curtis Granderson in the starting lineup. Let's Go Tigers! Max Scherzer got this!!
While I'm sure most "Yankee haters" and Tiger fans are excited that New York is down 3 game to none in the ALCS...I'll remind you that *today* marks the 8-year anniversary of the most amazing, improbable comeback in sports history...as the Boston Red Sox came back from down 3-0 and at the brink of elimination in Game 4...to winning the ALCS and eventually the World Series in 2004. My point is...don't be *too* giddy just yet. To paraphrase Kevin Millar, put them to bed *tonight*.
Tigers take the 3-0 lead behind Verlander. Not convinced that this series isnt going back to New York. CC on the mound tomorrow and I am not 100% sure of Max Scherzer's health. Add that to Detroit's terrible bullpen and I would say there is a good chance it goes to 3-1 tomorrow. On Thursday Andy Pettite goes as well. I am just not gonna count out those 2 pitchers in this situation. Besides, Detroit might be better off in not finishing this series too soon. Game 1 of the World Series wont be until next Wednesday so thats a really big layoff. They found out about that in 2006 and we saw the Rockies fall victim to that too in 2007. I am convinced that Joe Girardi is purposely attempting to put 100% blame on Alex Rodriguez. First of all, of all the hitters on their roster, he has the best numbers against Verlander, including 2 HRs this season. He had a couple of good at bats in the previous game with a line out and even had a base hit on another line drive. Then when they had a chance to tie the game in the n ...
50 years ago this day the 1962 World Series came to its breathtaking and gut-wrenching conclusion. After seven dramatic and mostly close games, Willie McCovey's line smash ("Hardest ball I ever hit") beelined into Bobby Richardson's glove. Game 7 to New York, 1-0. Series to New York, 4-3. That scene was to haunt and taunt Giants fans (including those not yet born) for decades. Hopefully their team's recent successes have expelled those gremlins by now. My one memory of that Series is passing through the living room while my dad and sister were watching. (Did I have the wit to ask the score?). That must have been Game 4, played on Sunday, October 7. Oddly, that was the only game of the seven played on a weekend, due to rain delays in both New York and San Francisco plus the three-game National League playoff between the Giants and Dodgers, who had tied after 162 regular season games. Will such early memories have the same hold on today's young fans-to-be, given endless post-season schedules, hyper ...
"Two most heartbreaking ends to baseball games I have ever seen: Game 6, 1986 World Series, in New York, ball through Bill Buckner's legs, Mets beat Boston ... Game 5, 2012 National League Division Series, Cards get three two-out, two-strike runs in first playoff series in Washington in 70 years, St. Louis beats the Nationals." - Don't look now PK, there's a shark beneath your plodding feet.
October 15, 1912: Italian and Turkish delegates signed a preliminary peace agreement in Switzerland at Ouchy, with the Italian fleet immediately being recalled from the Aegean Sea and Turkish troops withdrawing three days later from Libya. Turkey declined to reply to the note from the three Balkan states. Turkish troops bombarded Kriva, Bulgaria. Game 7: 1912 World Series, @ Fenway Park, Boston Smokey Joe Wood, who had pitched and won Games 1 and 4 for the Red Sox, started Game 7 with a chance to win a championship for Boston. However, in a replay of Game 6, the Giants blew the game open in the first inning. Seven of the first nine Giants batters reached base, and six of them scored. Wood faced ten batters, threw them only thirteen pitches, and retired only one of them, with the first out coming on a sacrifice and the third when Tesreau was caught stealing second. New York cruised from there, winning the only truly lopsided game of the series 11–4. This game featured two "bounce" home runs, one from Gar ...
1964: Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle hit HR's on consecutive pitches as New York wins 8-3 at St. Louis and evens the World Series.

Willie Mays started in place of the injured Rusty Staub and batted third in what turned out to be his final big league start. In the third, pitcher Holtzman doubled and scored when Bert Campaneris hit a routine grounder that inexplicably bounced between Mets Second Baseman's Felix Millan's legs. Campaneris then stole second and scored on a single to right by Joe Rudi. The Mets came up with a run in the fourth on an RBI single by John Milner that scored Cleo ...
Greetings, Surface-dwellers! Neptune, King of the Oceans here! Ooooh, I feel so deliciously prepared! By this time tomorrow morning (and please be aware, it's only a prediction, and little else), your precious New York Yankees will be once more humiliated in their own Stadium by no less than the Baltimore Orioles --- meaning that that doofus of a Wizard, Blackwolf the Dragonmaster, will once more have to kneel before my throne and surrender control of Earth's oceans to me! For those of you who don't know the tale, the Mage of Talisker made a bet with me in 1993, when the now Miami Marlins challenged the Yanks in that year's World Series. Long story short, the Marlins won the Championship, four games to three; the rest I think you can guess for yourselves. I welcome your responses to this silly prediction; personally, I can't wait for Master Blackwolf to get his butt down here to my Throne Room and do what only New York's Unofficial Wizard can do! (Heh-heh!)
Ok Tigers fans. The last time Detroit won a World Series was 1984, right? Names like Jack Morris, Allen Trammell, Lou Whitaker, Chester Lemon, Lance Parrish. So, if you tell your kids about those players right now, 28 years ago, it would be like your parents and grandparents in 1984 telling you about the great 1956 teams, when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn, the Cincinatti team was the Redlegs, the Giants were a New York baseball team, and Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, and Billy Martin all played for the Yankees. Feeling old yet?? Glory days!
Bobby Thomson hits the Shot Heard 'Round the World in '51. Dusty Rhodes is the pinch-hitting hero in the '54 World Series. Willie Mays makes the Catch in the same Series. Joe Namath guarantees a victory in '69. Reggie hits three in '77. But what Raul Ibanez has done--first on September 22nd against the A's in a miraculous 14-inning game, then in the final regular season weekend against the Red Sox (game-tying home run; walk-off single), and tonight a game-tying home run and a game-winning home run in the playoffs might make him the biggest short-term hero in New York Sports history. Tonight was like a freakin' movie, but better!
Now that the Green Bay Packers got srewed two weeks ago; Oklahoma St got screwed last Saturday and the umps caught the fever in Atlanta last night screwing the Braves where will the replacement refs or their spirt travel to next on their U2 like Nationwide Tour. My recommendation, if I can make one, is New York. If anyone deserves to get jobbed its the Yankees. The only thing that could make this baseball postseason a complete disaster is the Yankees winning a World Series and hearing that tool, John Sterling, saying, "Game over. World Series over. Yankees win! The Yankes win!"
The Houston Business Journal published a booklet on the 100th anniversary of Rice University. Lots of interesting history tidbits in there. A lot of it I knew. Here is something I never heard before now: 1962 -- Rice receives the ultimate alumni gift when John Cox, ’27, donates Yankee Stadium to his alma mater. Cox, owner of the venue through a 1955 stock acquisition, gives Rice all capital stock in the Major League Baseball stadium, then valued at $4.5 million, along with lucrative leasing rights. The university makes millions renting the House that Ruth Built to the New York Yankees over the next nine years, a dark period when the Bronx Bombers didn’t win a single pennant, much less a World Series. In 1966, Rice repaints the stadium blue and white. In 1971, the city of New York acquires Yankee Stadium by eminent domain and pays Rice a $2.5 million condemnation fee.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman said he would like the team to win its 28 World Series as one last gift to his late father, who was a big fan and passed away in September. "How sweet" said children of New York fans. "Oh STFU," said children of Cubs fans.
Voodoo Child/ Fall, 2004- Review Jack Scarangella- The Hero In Us All- ''Castles Made Of Sand'' Now that the New York Yankees finished another World Series, what do they do in the off season? Some of them play music. Back in 1999, a number of them were recruited by New York-based drummer Jack Scarangella to help him produce his dream project- The Hero In Us All. There was Bernie Williams, Paul O'Neill, Willie Randolph, Ron Guidry. They weren't the only ones to make cameo appearances on this Scarangella dream.

so right now, the Phillies are 67-71, finishing up the series with Colorado, which should bring them to 69-71, followed by the Miami Marlins who they should also sweep because they're awful and a 4 game set with Houston Astros...honestly they need to be 76-71, which would mean 11 games in a row dating back to last game of Reds series.then go to New York and win the series, 78-72, beat the Braves 2 out of 3, 80-73, sweep the Nats again, 83-73, and win the last two series against Miami and the Nats again.87-75 should give them the 2nd wild card as the other teams beat up on each other...the worst they is 84-78...so they only have 7 more games to give, but I think they'll go, Hamels will deal out the Braves, they would host the first two games against Reds, stomp them out in a sweep or 4 games...NLCS against the Giants/Nats.both teams are beatable.World Series against Oakland A's, maybe a rematch of the '08 World Series or the Orioles ... its still within reach... you must have hope...hope a good thing, may ...
The Mets and Dodgers were in the same financial ruins this past winter (the Mets were worse, as the Wilpons were actually facing CRIMINAL charges with the whole Bernie Madoff fiasco). Bud Selig is buddy buddy with the Wilpon family, and didn't force them to sell. He didn't have the same feelings towards the McCourt family, and DID force Frank Mccourt to sell the Dodgers. Now the Dodgers are on their way to the playoffs (and a potential World Series by acquiring Hanley Ramirez, Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Shane Victorino, Nick Punto, Brandon League, and Joe Blanton {with Carl Crawford helping them in 2013}), and the Mets (AGAIN) are one of the laughing stocks in baseball, and didn't even have the cash flow to get one singular bullpen arm. I really hope that David Wright gets traded to the Dodgers so that I can root for one of New York's original National League teams, and not this joke of a franchise lead by Freddie Coupons. /Metsrant
Don't ignore this one. It's an excerpt from Oliver DeMille's new book "1913". There were three major world shifting events that took place in 1913. Event The Sixteenth Amendment. Event The Seventeenth Amendment... and Event The Federal Reserve. There was the nail in the coffin that came later in 1936 but that's for later. Page 60: "Together, these three 1913 events caused an increased desire in Washington to spend, eliminated roadblocks to massive spending and created easier mechanisms for taxing, borrowing, and printing money. In short, 1913 was a banner year for big government. Only one more major thing was needed to open the floodgates of massive government. It would take years for it to come to fruition, but after Wilson's speech, it was only a matter of time. Yes, the year was 1913. Philadelphia won the World Series over New York, and the first recorded pie-in-the-face scene showed up in cinema. *** Jack began adding a prize to each package, and Buffalo Bill Cody shut down his famous Wi ...

Jewish-American organized crime (sometimes called the Jewish Mob, Jewish Mafia, Kosher Mafia, or the Kosher Nostra[1]—a pun on Cosa Nostra), emerged during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the late 19th century in New York City, Monk Eastman operated a powerful Jewish gang that competed with Italian and Irish gangs, notably Paul Kelly's Five Points Gang, for control of New York's underworld. In the early 1920s, stimulated by the economic opportunities of the Roaring Twenties and later, Prohibition, organized crime figures such as Arnold Rothstein were controlling a wide range of criminal enterprises. According to crime writer Leo Katcher, Rothstein "transformed organized crime from a thuggish activity by hoodlums into a big business, run like a corporation, with himself at the top."[2] Rothstein was allegedly responsible for fixing the 1919 World Series.[3]
Courtesy of Nate Silver: The last ordinary member of the House to be elected vice president, and the last Republican, came more than 100 years ago: in 1908, when William Howard Taft and James S.

Robert Leo "Bob" Sheppard (October 20, 1910–July 11, 2010) long-time public address announcer for numerous New York area college and professional sports teams, in particular the MLB New York Yankees (1951–2007), and the NFL New York Giants (1956–2006). Sheppard announced more than 4,500 Yankees baseball games over a period of 56 years, including 22 pennant-winning seasons and 13 World Series Championships; he called 121 consecutive postseason contests, 62 games in 22 World Series, and six no-hitters, including three Perfect Games. He was also the in-house voice for a half-century of Giants football games, encompassing 9 conference championships, 3 NFL championships (1956, 1986, 1990), and the game often called "the greatest ever played", the classic 1958 championship loss to Baltimore. His smooth, distinctive baritone and precise, consistent elocution became iconic aural symbols of both the old Yankee Stadium and Giants Stadium. Reggie Jackson famously nicknamed him "The Voice of God", while Carl ...
Inspired by a friend's question amid these NBA Finals: this may be a difference between die-hard sports fan areas and more relaxed ones, but for die-hards, a player's success has little-to-no effect on someone's hatred of them. For instance, Roger Clemens could finally win World Series with the Yankees - didn't make Boston or Toronto fans hate him less. Michael Jordan won championship after championship - Cleveland, Detroit, and New York fans didn't start saying "Hey, that guy isn't really that bad." In other words, LeBron may end up winning a championship this year or next - but why would I all of a sudden start to love him?
"Them (Stony Brook Seawolves) going to the College World Series, representing the Northeast, it's a good baseball story, it's a New York story.'' Omar Minaya

this is my story...and I'm stickin' to it: It took over 50 seasons and more than 8,000 games but Johan Santana finally delivered the first no-hitter in New York Mets history in an 8-0 blanking of the St. Louis Cardinals Friday night at Citi Field. Santana was masterful in fanning eight batters while allowing five walks for his first no-hitter. Santana tossed a career-high 134 pitches and got a few breaks along the way, including a tremendous Mike Baxter catch in the outfield in which he suffered an apparent shoulder injury. Carlos Beltran also appeared to hit the chalk with a drive down the left field line but it was incorrectly ruled a foul ball for the ex-Met. It was still no cheapie for the superb Santana, as the no-no came against the defending World Series Champions and the top offense in the National League.

Gamblers tried to steal our national pass time. The Black Sox Scandal took place around and during the play of the American baseball 1919 World Series. Eight members of the Chicago White Sox were banned for life from baseball for intentionally losing games, which allowed the Cincinnati Reds to win the World Series. The conspiracy was the brainchild of White Sox first baseman Arnold "Chick" Gandil, who had longstanding ties to petty underworld figures. He persuaded Joseph "Sport" Sullivan, a friend and professional gambler, that the fix could be pulled off. New York gangster Arnold Rothstein supplied the money through his lieutenant Abe Attell, a former featherweight boxing champion.
Those who say that same-city interleague series have stopped being special may see their belief reflected in future schedules. Matchups like Mets-Yankees and Cubs-White Sox could become only a one series per year affair, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York … Continue reading →

One thing I love about baseball: the list of Perfect Game pitchers is an amazing combination of the greats in baseball history and some truly "average" guys coming out of nowhere: Cy Young: Legend Addie Joss: Excellent Cleveland Indian pitcher cut short by meningitis at 31 Charlie Robertson: A no-namer on the White Sox Don Larsen: The true imperfect man to throw a Perfect Game Jim Bunning: Superb career (before losing his mind as a Senator...) Sandy Koufax: Legend Catfish Hunter: Legend Len Barker: Who? Mike Witt: Great Angels pitcher of the mid-1980s but fell apart in 1990 Tom Browning: Another great pitcher (for the Reds) but not a long career Dennis Martinez: Dominant pitcher for a long time. Kenny Rogers: Milked this one through two stints in New York. David Wells: Started mediocre and became dominant the last half of his career; part of the epic 1998 Yankee team David Cone: Great pitcher in his second run through New York Randy Johnson: Legend Mark Buehrle: A perfecto, a no-no, and a World Series tro ...
100 years ago today, President Kennedy's grandfather, "Honey Fitz" threw out the first pitch to open Fenway Park in Boston. Fenway has been the home to some of the greatest memories in baseball--The "Bambino Curse", the Ted Williams era, the Carlton Fisk home run, Bill Buckner "kicking the ball and losing the game", fights with the Yankees, and finally the recent World Series victories in 2004 and 2007. My father was a huge Red Sox fan and every year he would take us to see them play the Yankees in New York. In memory of my father, today I am a Red Sox Fan. For my Dad and Red Sox fans everywhere--this one's for you.Happy Birthday Fenway! Go Sox!
