Watch: Bobby V in Japanese Music Video

Watch: 1951 Pennant Race

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

It’s been a wild September (pun intended!) for both leagues Wild Card teams. We could very well see 1-game playoffs in both leagues if the Braves, Cardinals, Rays, and Red Sox all win their respective games. Game 7 TV brings up back to a classic pennant race that resulted in a one-game playoff. Everyone remembers [...]

Best Joe Robbie/Pro Player /Dolphin/Dolphins/Land Shark/Sun Life Memory

This was during the Marlins inaugural season when it was still called Joe Robbie. Yes, that’s Frank Tanana on the mound. Great hearing Tim McCarver and Ralph Kiner in the booth for what was, at the time, a WOR Channel 9 game. If you play in an area where rain was clearly going to be [...]

Watch: Darryl Strawberry on David Letterman from 1988

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Watch Darryl Strawberry on David Letterman. The title says 1987, but when you hear him speak it’s 1988 (Wrigley with lights referenced). Thought this was kind of interesting for everyone to enjoy.
