The Glory of Their Times by Lawrence S. Ritter, (Perennial, 2002), 360 pages. The Glory of Their Times is the quintessential introduction to the “early days of baseball”. The death of Ty Cobb in 1961 prompted Lawrence S. Ritter to reach the startling conclusion that years of baseball history were slowly vanishing. With few written […]
Tune in to hopefully watch Chelsea lose or catch some Spring Training baseball? It’s a tough choice, but baseball wins again. There are four games on MLB.tv this evening: 18.05 (GMT) – The Braves face the Indians. 18.10 – The Dodgers against the Mets. Brad “spend a” Penny is pitching for L.A., while Johan Santana makes […]
Cricket and baseball. Alike in some ways, completely different in others. The similarities make them both antagonistic towards each other (specifically cricket fans denouncing baseball as a way to imply the superiority of their game) and natural partners. Surely a person who can marvel at the technique of a perfectly executed cover drive can similarly […]
Those of you who are not particularly interested in Champions League football can choose from three MLB.tv games this evening instead. Two have just begun. The Tigers are facing Roy Oswalt and the Astros, while the Dodgers are playing against the Nationals (both started at 18.05 GMT). Later on, we have a fascinating match up (if for only the first two innings […]
There’s nothing quite like sitting down on a Sunday evening and watching a ballgame or two. There are four games to choose from today on MLB.tv, with the majority of the other games being available on Gameday Audio. At 17.35(GMT), the Reds face the Blue Jays with Bronson Arroyo and A.J. Burnett listed as the scheduled […]
If you’ve been encouraged to subscribe to MLB.tv today following my post about the enhanced media player (not likely, but I guess it’s possible), you have three live games to choose from on your MLB.tv 2008 opening day. The Yankees are in action against the Phillies with first pitch scheduled for 18.05(GMT). Chien-Ming Wang and Adam […]
When the details for the 2008 MLB.tv subscription packages were announced, I noted that the products on offer were predominantly the same as those from 2007 (including the price); however one of the few changes MLB.TV subscribers will notice this season is the new media player. MLB.com are leading the way in embracing Microsoft Silverlight, […]
Juan Gonzalez hasn’t given up on his dream to return to the Majors. The two-time MVP got one at-bat with the Indians in 2005, but he failed to win a Major League job in 2006 and 2007 and at thirty-seven years old it looks like his career has come to an end. He’s not prepared to accept […]
Four games are being broadcast on MLB.TV today with the most appealing being the Cardinals against the Mets. Spring Training games are exhibitions (or ‘friendlies’) so it’s extremely rare for one to be unmissable, but I’m sure all Mets fans will be tuning in to see Johan Santana pitching in a Mets uniform for the […]
We’re back on at MLB.TV, although the hopes of seeing Micah Owings hit were quickly dashed. As the Rockies are playing with a split-squad, they have agreed to use a DH. Much to Owings’ disappointment, who apparently launched three bombs over the batters eye in centre field during batting practice.
