Baseball's Opening Day or is it ?
The baseball season started in Australia, with the Dodgers and Diamondbacks serving as ambassadors for the big-league game in Sydney. Now, thanks to “Opening Night,” the Dodgers will have played three regular season games before 27 teams have played even one. The first game played on opening day will be the fourth of the season. Oh, and then the Astros and Yankees don’t get started until Tuesday. USAToday
Beginning in 1886, the Chicago White Stockings were the first major League baseball team to get ready for their season in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
A whose who of Negro Leagues teams spent time training in Hot Springs – the Memphis Red Sox, Cleveland Buckeyes, New York Cubans, Baltimore Elites, Buck O’Neil and the Kansas City Monarchs. The New York Black Yankees, Chicago American Giants, Homestead Grays, Pittsburgh Crawfords and Detroit Stars also hopped on the bus and went South for spring training and played games versus local teams.
On this mournful day, consider the group of mankind worse off; Ralph McPherran Kiner has died. One of baseball's genuine and most charming gentlemen, foremost sluggers and most enduring personalities passed away Thursday at age 91 MLB
OH NO! EFG has been taken over by two rugged, dashing, foul mouthed, trash talking, DGAF pirates and rumor has it they're swinging Louisville Sluggers, ladies. That's right, J THE RIPPER and PETE, THE BASH BROTHERS, take over EFG for ONE NIGHT. Can El Gringo Loco or Tom Ford stop them in time? More than likely no...we do what we want. #BASHBROTHERSTAKEOVER

Darryl Strawberry: God Saved his Life, and Now he says he has 'Never Been Happier' Serving Him (Gosp
He is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he was one of the most feared sluggers in the game. He was known primarily for his intimidating presence in the batter's box and his long, looping swing. 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. He was voted to the All-Star Game eight straight times from 1984–1991.
Throughout his difficult childhood, he often saw the rage from his father's drinking and wild behaviour at nightclubs. While he was a young boy, his father threatened to kill the entire family. It was at that point that the police arrested him and he never came back to his family. As he became a star player in high school and was drafted in the first round by the New York Mets, his life was on a downward spiral. He began to smoke crack, drink heavily, do drugs, and was abusive to himself and to his family. In 1992, at the suggestion of a relative, he visited a Morris Cerullo crusade, and gave his life to Jesus Christ. He thought then that everything for him would change overnight, but that was not the case. Soon after he dislocated his shoulder and then reverted back to his old life of drinking and drugs.
In the years following, his Christian walk was anything but easy. He ruptured a disk in his lower spine, divorced and remarried, got into several fights and was arrested, put under investigation for tax fraud, went back and forth between teams, checked into a rehab clinic, tested positive for cocaine, went to jail for felony tax evasion and later for other charges; was diagnosed with cancer and had to endure the long painful process of chemotherapy...
His name is Darryl Strawberry.

2.) NBA FA & offseason talk w/ Lauren Beasley @LBeasley313 - Reaction to Celtics' hiring of Butler head man Brad Stevens to replace Doc Rivers. How will Stevens handle Rondo, and can they co-exist or will Rondo be shipped out of Beantown before the season's over in order to save face?
3.) Reaction to Dwight Howard joining the bearded assassin James Harden and former Celtic great Kevin McHale in Houston. Did D-12 make the right decision, and will it give Dwight the best chance of winning a championship outside of joining forces w/ LBJ and Wade in Miami?
4.) MLB at the All-Star break chat w/ former MLB pitcher CJ Nitkowski @CJNitkowski - Progression of Chris Davis this season and the reason why he's developed into one of the best all-around sluggers in the game.
5.) Do Matt Harvey's numbers make him worthy of being named the starting pitcher for the NL in the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field?
Author Harry Lockhart Jr.
Growing up in St. Louis in the 1960s, Lockhart witnessed hundreds of Cardinals games – and even spent summers working aisle-to-aisle selling peanuts in the stadium as a boy. Now, Lockhart channels his experience and overwhelming passion of the game into a new book, exploring America’s favorite pastime during what baseball historians describe as the ‘age of pitching.’
The Beef examines batting combinations of 1960s baseball. Full of rare photos, player trivia, quotes and detailed statistics, the book adds merit to the careers of those players that were overshadowed by their baseball icon counterparts and have become lost in time by not being enshrined by the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
“Since Babe Ruth joined the New York Yankees in the 1920s, America has been intrigued with baseball sluggers and teams that stuff the middle of their batting order with power,” said Lockhart. “The 1960s was a decade of some of the greatest slugging combinations in baseball history as well as a time when the game’s greatest players didn’t receive the credit they deserved.”
Written for the true sports fan, MLB statisticians, history buffs and baby boomers, The Beef highlights those golden, forgotten moments in baseball history.
