Why Major Leaguers Don’t Hit Better

April 17, 2015
By

Last year there were 692 pitchers used in major league baseball.  Since there are 30 teams in the majors, this averages out to be over 20 pitchers per team.  Just 5 years ago only 557 pitchers were used.  Not only are so many pitchers used but 61 of those pitchers had a fast ball that...

Framing Artist

April 10, 2015
By

A framing artist in this article has nothing to do with picture framing.  It is a talent used by major league catchers to steal strikes for their pitcher when a pitch is just out of the strike zone.  Believe it or not, MLB keeps this statistic among all the other (useless) facts they record....

Men’s Final Four

April 9, 2015
By

This year’s Final Four met almost all the expectations that experts predicted it would.  The one noticeable flaw in all of their predictions was that Kentucky did not play in the final game.  The tournament itself gave us one terrific game (Wisconsin vs. Kentucky), one very good game (Duke vs. Wisconsin), and one less...
