GIFs: Leury Garcia's magic-loogie 5-6-3


Prince Fielder's grounder against the shift forced Leury Garcia to turn a double play on a feed from third. But that was the second-strangest thing about the double play.

Woodrow WIlson: The first fantasy baseball player


"Wilson recorded the starting lineup of the Light Foot Base Ball Club in his copy of Elements of Physical Geography. These ninth-grade textbook doodlings have been preserved, along with a list of racehorses 'arranged by age and speed.' One year later, before moving from Augusta to Columbia, South Carolina, he went from listmaker to perhaps the inventor of fantasy baseball. Here’s the previously untold story."

What Grantland Got Wrong


When you’re a writer, you want something you create to have a long life, to be something that readers will remember and revisit for years to come. If such was Caleb Hannan’s wish, it’s been granted, because his essay on "Dr. V and the magical putter" figures to be a permanent exhibit of what not to do, and how not to treat a fellow human being.

I posted this on a 3 day old post, so I don't know if anyone else would notice it. So here I go again.

Bo knows - left field?


Mr. T. comments on Bo throwing out a runner at the plate as a member of the White Sox. Mr. T. cannot contain himself.



I have been a long time fan and associate of Davy Rothbart and his work on Found, This American Life, among other projects, and recently had the pleasure of attending the screening for his most recent project which is a documentary titled Medora. The movie captures so many elements, its tuff for me to dwindle down into a few words (hence my title for a brief synopsis)...and that may be because they had over 600 hours of footage and broke it down to a beautiful 80 minute take on the trials and tribulations of a few select boys soon to be men, a broken small town, and basketball. The movie was produced by Steve Buscemi, but has a full slate of well known and unknown creative types to make it happen. Davy and his co-director Andrew Cohn are on tour right now screening their project at cities across the US. Originally it was going to show everywhere but since I believe the list has dwindled. They'll be at the Music Box in Chi., on Dec 5th. if youre interested, and if its not coming to a locale near you, I believe you can watch it on/through their site. I give it two snaps and a rewind.
