    Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson, whose deft glovework and folksy manner made him one of the most beloved and accomplished athletes in Baltimore history, has died. He was 86. "We are deeply saddened to share the news of the passing of Brooks Robinson," his family and the Baltimore Orioles said in a joint statement. "An integral part of our Orioles Family since 1955, he will continue to leave a lasting impact on our club, our community, and the sport of baseball." The statement did not say how Robinson died. The Orioles held a moment of silence before their...

    Man, this is scary right here; the number of things that could've gone wrong are just through the roof, and Ronald Acuna, Jr. is lucky he came out of this uninjured. Watch what happened last night when two fans ran onto the field and made their way, seemingly unimpeded, to MVP candidate Ronald Acuna Jr. VIDEO AT LINK............. Nuh-uh dude, not on my watch, I'm sorry. First of all, Acuna is lucky, sure. But I'm gonna go ahead and say those two fans are luckier than he. Because if that was my baseball team, we'd have cleared the bench and...

With the balanced schedule we are now trying to follow more road games. Please advise. GRRRR🇺🇸🇺🇸😘🌭⚾️
  • Germán delivers MLB’s 1st perfect game since 2012

    OAKLAND -- Domingo Germán tossed Major League Baseball's first perfect game since 2012 in the Yankees' 11-0 win over the A's on Wednesday night at the Coliseum. It was the fourth perfect game in franchise history, and the first since David Cone against the Expos in 1999. After allowing 17 runs (15 earned) over 5 1/3 innings in his previous two starts, Germán entered Wednesday with the potential to make the wrong kind of history by becoming just the fifth pitcher in franchise history to allow seven-plus runs in three straight games. Instead, Germán snapped a streak of another kind...

    Throughout the month of June, Americans from all walks of life have gone about their business surrounded by rainbow Pride flags. They are everywhere you look, from restaurants to online shopping to even everyone’s favorite escape, sports. As the alphabet mafia set their sights on major league sports, how are these teams responding to the other portions of their customer base? Are they giving in so they don’t become the next Bud Light or Target? Some are, but some are actually listening to their fan base. One of those teams is the Texas Rangers. The Rangers are the only team...
  • GWINN: Dodgers Swept, Suffer Worst Home Loss in 125 Years After Honoring Anti-Catholic Drag Queens

    Not that this had anything to do with anything, but the Los Angeles Dodgers were humiliated by their archrival this weekend after deciding to host and honor a group of anti-Catholic drag queens at their Pride Night event on Friday. The weekend began as awfully as it ended for the Dodgers. On Friday, the team bestowed the “Community Heroes” award on the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of drag queens who routinely mock the Catholic faith by performing grotesque sexual acts while using religious imagery, garb, and symbolism. Fans barely outnumbered cameramen and security guards as the Dodgers honored...

    MILWAUKEE -- A bus driver was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence while transporting the Pittsburgh Pirates from Chicago to Milwaukee for their weekend series with the Brewers. Illinois State Police said the driver was traveling away from officers seeking to escort the bus on its trip to Milwaukee late Thursday night. Troopers said they observed more erratic driving and eventually stopped the bus on the right shoulder of Interstate 94 in Chicago. Police said the driver was arrested after they observed “multiple signs of impairment.” The driver isn’t a Pirates employee but was contracted to drive...

    Thousands of demonstrators descended upon Dodgers Stadium Friday evening to protest the team’s Pride Night ceremony honoring a controversial group of queer and trans nuns. Organized by the group Catholics for Catholics, the massive crowd jammed up the main entrance of the ballpark ahead of the scheduled pre-game ceremony celebrating the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, according to reports. The mass of protesters, some holding signs like “Bud Light the Dodgers” and “Stop Anti Catholic Hate,” took over the entire block on Vin Scully Avenue and chanted “Save our Children.” The local chapter of the Sisters, whose members dress up in...

  • MLB quietly tells teams to drop use of Pride uniforms

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/14/2023 | Heather Hamilton
    Major League Baseball has quietly ordered its teams not to wear any Pride uniforms throughout their Pride events. The decision comes amid several companies and organizations facing consumer pushback for promoting LGBT acceptance. News of the MLB directive gained recognition last week when the Tampa Bay Rays reportedly announced its Pride festivities would have a different look, with players not sporting jerseys and hats featuring Pride rainbow patches and logos. The league reportedly announced its decision at an owners meeting in February. The decision follows Rays players declining to wear Pride jerseys in 2022, along with many NHL teams opting...
  • A’s ‘Reverse Boycott’ Might Do Down in Bay Area History. Don’t Miss It

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | June 11, 2023 | Bruce Jenkins
    “Tuesday night at the Oakland Coliseum” doesn’t sound like much, not for those who have followed the A’s in recent years. It sounds like the echo of plaintive voices in the gloom of desolation. Not this coming Tuesday night, though. The Oakland Athletics’ “reverse boycott” night could produce some of the most memorable scenes in Bay Area sports history. I didn’t think it was such a brilliant idea at first. The A’s seemed destined to leave town; would they really pack the stadium for a sort of maudlin farewell? It sounded to me like sadness, the kind that has swept...
  • This One MLB Team (The Texas Rangers) will not Host an ‘LGBT Night’ for Pride Month

    Turning Point USA ^ | June 9, 2023 | Anthony Watson
    To celebrate Pride Month, most teams in Major League Baseball have scheduled a “Pride Night” to celebrate the LGBT community. However, this year, the Texas Rangers will be the only MLB team to not host a Pride Night for its fans. MLB’s practice of holding “Pride Nights” began in 2001 when the Chicago Cubs were the first team to schedule such an event. Since then, every team has adopted a similar event at their ballpark. It appears that the Rangers have no regard for this practice. While the team has themed nights on schedule to celebrate things such as Star...

Boston has drawn plenty of criticism for its decision to call up Dermody to start on Thursday after MassLive.com’s Sean McAdam reported that the Red Sox were aware of the now-deleted tweet from the 32-year-old pitcher. Dermody tweeted back in June 2021: “#PrideMonth. Homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God. They will go to hell. This is...

The crowd, to put it lightly, was not all that fond of seeing the Jays reliever as he ran out of the pen toward the mound. Showering Bass with boos and jeers for essentially the whole half-inning he was out there,...
