Saw this while skimming on YouTube. According to the title of the video, this gentleman is 84 years old and as you can see still has a passion for the game and can actually hit the ball pretty darn well (i.e. better than me). He’s definitely got to be among the top 1% of 80+ year old hitters out there one would think.
You’ve got to love this one. This young man is a Texas Rangers fan, so his parents came up with the greatest way ever to yank out a baby tooth. Throwing a baseball with a string tied to his tooth, to his dad while the Rangers are playing in the World Series in the background. My folks were never this creative with my teeth. Big props to this little guy’s parents for their creativity.
While the 2011 World Series may not draw the ratings the Fox is hoping for, the Game 1 matchup between the St Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers did draw at least one four legged fan.
According to the description on YouTube, the Texas Rangers winning the ALCS inspired this fan to write a song about baseball. The finished product is called “Second Base”. Would Paula, Randy, & Simon put him through to Los Angeles?
I got a good chuckle out of this one. A lady at an aquarium somewhere decides to repeatedly toss her baseball cap in the air. It catches the eye of one of the dolphins who playfully follows the hat’s every move. It’s pretty funny. Enjoy.
It is apparently tradition at many Japanese baseball games to release balloons during the seventh inning. During today’s near sell out between the Hanshin Tigers vs Tokyo Giants, the crowd did just that. It’s a pretty awesome visual as tens of thousands of balloons shoot through the sky at the same time.
This is the rare video from the Batting Stance Guy that doesn’t actually feature the Batting Stance Guy, who is a must follow on twitter @BattingStanceG. Instead it stars his New Era Hats, all 30 of them, visiting various attractions across the country on a summer road trip. Enjoy.
Not sure where this is from, but check out the strike three call by this local baseball league umpire. Big league umpires should be this demonstrative. It would make for some good manager tirades 🙂
Not sure what this is from other than that by the title of the video it appears to be at a tournament in Boulder Colorado. At the start of the video the first base umpire throws out a coach and then gets in his face and screams at him. Later three cops show up and have a one sided talk with the umpire before finally departing without further incident. The whole thing is pretty bizarre. I guess the coach wasn’t too happy about getting run and getting screamed at, and rather than throw a punch he called the cops instead.
Check this kid out. Three year old Jaiden Delgado takes some hacks off a tee while his proud father records. Seeing as I probably couldn’t do what Jaiden is doing when I was like 10, I’ve got to give the kid props. Pretty impressive for a little guy. He gets some solid line drive contact swinging a bat that is about as big as he is. Then in the second clip Jaiden moves on to fielding where he fields rapid fire ground balls. If his New York Yankees shirt is any indication, you can expect to see him in the Bronx around the year 2030 🙂
