  2. Strike in the forecast

    I hate to say this at this time of the year but I see another baseball strike coming when the latest contract is up. Salaries are escalating to the point where the minimum will be 1million dollars and that is ridiculous I am sorry also to say. I hope that I am wrong but baseball is heading in that direction once again. Need for greed. Donald Fehr is the Villain here. His main interest is how much money he can make and thinks nothing of the fans either!

  4. Remembering Double Headers

    I have a 13 year old son and I tell him how double headers were common place. I remember on a warm day, usually a Sunday you get to the game at about 11 and take in batting practice. And in those days the Yankees use to hit last at batting practice so you use to see them, not like now. But yu sit back and enjoy 2 games for the price of a grandstand seat of $1.50. And the games lasted about 2 hours. God how I miss those days. We use to have at least 4 to 6 hot dogs that if I remember cost a...

(AP) The Atlanta Braves couldn't escape the shadow of John Rocker at the opening of spring training Friday. Still, they seemed willing to forgive the suspended reliever.

  13. 1860's Baseball in NY - The OLD Ball Game indeed!

    I just got thru reading an article in the Oct 98 issue of Smithsonian magazine...it was sitting in our break room here at work. Apparently, there has been a resurrgence of "old-time" baseball in the past few years...and I mean OLD TIME. The writer was on location in Old Bethpage, NY covering this league up there that plays baseball the way it was played around the 1860's. They play with no gloves, have 4 strikes and 5 balls...lots of stuff like that. I have GOT to see this! Anyone have...

  16. Youth baseball

    I'd like to take a minute to plug my friends video, "The 59 minute Baseball Practice". It's a bestseller on Amazon.com. For any coaches out there, it's really worth checking out. Fun drills to develop skills so there's no wasted time at practice. Use of "rag" balls to reduce fear of catching fly balls, bunting, base running, and other important skills, taught in a way that is fun and so kids aren't just standing around shagging balls. It's great even if you aren't a coach. I wish I had this...

  17. I was theren for abbott's no hitter

    I had the leasure of sitting in Dr. Bobby Brown's box seats on the third base side when Jim Abbott threw his no hitter against the indians. When Carlos Baerga grounded out to Velarde for the final out I was needless to say in my glory. Great experience I will not ever forget!

  20. Yankees and Revenue Sharing

    I've been browsing various other MLB club forums and they seem to think that Total Revenue sharing is coming soon to MLB because of this new "Power" the owners entrusted to Bud Selig. They are also of the opinion that Total Revenue sharing will doom the Yankees. I'm I wrong or wasn't it just National TV and Internet revenues that are to be shared and not local TV & Radio? And If I'm wrong and its all Revenues, how do you see this affecting the Yanks if at all? Great New Site!
