All right boys, explain this one. A high school team in Arizona opted to forfeit its chance at a championship because they didn’t want to play a team with a girl on it. Think about that and remind yourselves that it’s 2012. The team, which attends Our Lady of Sorrows Academy, forfeited the game rather than face off Mesa Preparatory Academy because Mesa’s second-baseman is 15-year-old Paige Sultzbach.

Don’t Worry, Brad Pitt Hates Baseball

“It’s shameful how little I know about baseball … I’m amazed they let me do this movie. Baseball and I didn’t get along that well. I wrestled one year [in high school]. I dove one year. Everything but baseball.”

Brad Pitt talks to Sports Illustrated about his new movie, “Moneyball” (which opens this weekend), the true story of an Oakland A’s manager who turned his team around by recruiting bargain players rather than going after the same ones every other team wanted. So what made Brad want to do a flick about his least favorite sport? “I’m a sucker for the underdog story,” he explained. [People] Keep reading »

Texas Rangers Fan Falls To His Death Trying To Catch Baseball Thrown By Josh Hamilton

Ugh, this is such an awful story. A 39-year-old father took his son to a Texas Rangers baseball game in Arlington, TX, last night, and when outfielder Josh Hamilton (left) tossed him a foul ball, he fell 20 feet to his death trying to catch it. A man sitting near Shannon Stone tried to grab him by the leg as he fell over the railing, but wasn’t able to keep ahold of him. “He went straight down,” Ronnie Hargis said. “I tried to grab him, but I couldn’t. I tried to slow him down a little bit.” Keep reading »

What’s Up With This Baseball Jewelry?

So there was a little something last night called the World Series in which the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers (just in case you hadn’t heard). Did you notice any of the players wearing jewelry? (Or as we like to call male accessories: “mewelry.”) Turns out, it’s quite common for baseball players to wear necklaces, not so much as good luck charms or fashion statements, but to help their game. The rope-like strands contain magnets and aqua titanium, which supposedly “stabilize your electric current inside the body,” allowing you to “enhance your performance” by increasing flexibility and balance, or treating arthritis if you have it. There’s little scientific evidence to back up these claims, but still some big-hitting baseball stars swear by them. Not sure it’s a trend we would hop on for fashion or therapy … but we suppose it’s good to know. [Fox News, MLB Shop] Keep reading »

Man Lets Date Get Hit By Foul Ball — But That’s Not Why They Broke Up?


On Monday night, Bo Wyble and Sara Saco-Vertiz went to a Houston Astros baseball game. When a foul ball made a beeline for them in the stands, Wyble ducked and Saco-Verdiz was hit in the arm. The entire incident was caught on camera and the jumbotron. The video of this chivalry fail went viral on the web and Wyble and Saco-Verdiz appeared on “The Early Show” this morning to discuss the incident — and their relationship. Shocker! Only four days after this infamous date, the couple is finished — but Saco-Verdiz swears it has nothing to do with the fact that her ex caused her to get hit by a baseball. It was the facial hair, wasn’t it? [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
