    Turning 40, But That's Alright

    Most of us reach age 40 and live much longer. Probably all of us have a preset idea of what we want to have accomplished by then-and if we haven't made those accomplishments that we're failures. Well, I'm here to say that NONE of us are failures, we're all just doing the best we...

    One day a priest was playing baseball.

    A nun was cheer leading near the first base. The priest was up to bat. The pitcher threw the ball. The priest swung, missed, and said, "Dammit! I missed!" Don't you say that mister or God will strike you with a bolt of lightning," the nun said. Again the pitcher threw the ball...

    1957 All Star Game

    In 1957, Cincinnati fans stuffed the All Star Game ballot box and elected Reds to every position except Stan Musial at first base. Commissioner Ford Frick stepped in and replaced Gus Bell and Wally Post with Hank (Henry) Aaron and Willie Mays, then took the voting away from...

    Love It.

    I play baseball but currently am injured with a broken femur. I played for a month on the broken leg before going to the doctor and finding out that's why it was hurt. But i miss it already.

    2013 Playoffs

    My Reds are trying to ensure that the NL one -game wildcard playoff game happens in Pittsburgh rather than Cincinnati. Perhaps they remember last year's NLDS against the Giants. Either way, I fear that the Reds' post-season lasts only one game. I guess that leaves me...

    The Six Pack

    I have been a lifetime baseball fan. Several years ago I moved into my own apartment. Something I never dreamed would be possible as person with a physical disability; spastic cerebral palsy. Nevertheless, this year, a lifelong dream of mine came true. Me and friend purchased...

    America's Favorite Pastime Has Become Mine

    Last year I discovered the joys of baseball.  Now I just can't get enough.  Whenever a game is on, you will find me glued to a TV.  At this time, I do not have a favorite team however; I do enjoy watching the Yankees, Phillies, Orioles, Nationals, and Red Sox...

    The Reds

    The Reds assured today that the NL "wildcard" game will be played in Pittsburgh. I'm guessing that the Reds' post-season begins and ends Tuesday.

    That Ball... My Dream, My Destiny... I Almost Caught It

    I grew up going to major league games with my Dad and my brother.   We sat in the left field grandstand most of the time,  and sometimes went early enough to watch batting practice.   Homerun balls would come flying toward us.  During all those years my brother got one, my...

    I love this sport.I think it's so awesome to play and watch. People who know me know Im a die hard WHITE SOX fan, good job on the logo for the group by the way. Unlike other sports, baseball doesn't end with a buzzer. You could be tied 2-2 in the 12th inning and with 2 outs and...

    The Cincinnati Reds losers of five in a row

    now limp into Cleveland. A pathetic bunch they are. It is gut check time for this ball-club. The next ten days could define their season. Either right the ship or fall into oblivion and call it a year. Yes baseball seasons can end in June for some clubs. For the fans it is...
