    The racist incident that shook baseball nine years before integration

    Which is interesting in that now (and for the verrrrrry long past) MoCo leans very far to the left. I grew up here and we have at least one SoSH'er who lives here now.

    Savannah Bananas: baseball fun??

    Disclaimer: I have not seen them anywhere other than Savannah, and Grayson holds about 4,000 people. I am not sure how well the "act" translates to the larger stadiums. In watching on TV, they have gotten better at involving the further reaches of the 10k parks they are going to, but I am not...

    Oh for Christ's Sake.....People complaining about the rights and wrongs of end of season trophies

    Along those same lines I got "Most Hustle and Enthusiasm" in the mid 70's for a rec league basketball team I was on. Everyone got something (though I did not realize it at the time), and I was a pretty $hitty player so it was nice not to walk away empty handed after the pizza party. For...

    Savannah Bananas: baseball fun??

    It is a complete and utter shit-show, and I say that as a fan and ticket holder to a few games over the past 3 years or so. They have an "insiders club" called the K club. It is $50 per year and got you access to but no promise of getting tickets. It was only $50 for the year, so I jumped in...

    They are still going strong. I played and officiated for many years - it all came to a grinding halt after breaking my leg 2x in 12 months. You are a good player!

    Hockey North America used to play in Reston, but that was many years ago. Now, just at Cabin John, Wheaton and Rockville. It is a pretty good organization with about 50 teams across 3 divisions (and several sub-divisions).

    2023 NFL Coaching Carousel

    Talk here is that WAS might be his landing spot to OC away from Reid. Crap job, though, Rivera is a gonner once new owners are in place though if he is awesome maybe he stays with whomever replaces Rivera.

    Savannah Bananas: baseball fun??

    Yes and no. The Banana Ball games are Globetrotter-esque, but their regular season games are not. In the Summer, they are a traditional wood bat college league (kind of like the Cape) and have won the Coastal Plain League 2x in the past 5 years. During the CPL season, they still do a little...

    Savannah Bananas: baseball fun??

    My family and I were at the game he pitched. That was just one of the many, many great things about that night. The Banana Ball rules are fun and the entire operation had a Harlem Globetrotters feel to it. This was our first Banana Ball experience - we have been to 2 regular league games in...

    2022 Washington Nationals: "Going somewhere, Meat?"

    Reports here were NO deferred money - something the penny-pinching Lerner's always do. That is what drove Harper out. That is really "betting on himself".; let's see if it works out.
