In a true sign that Spring is not that far away, the Major League Baseball Spring Training camps open this week in Florida and Arizona. Listed below are the Spring Training dates for the Cardinals, Cubs, Royals and White Sox.
Chicago Cubs legend and 1971 Cy Young winner Fergie Jenkins is coming to Quincy. The baseball Hall of Famer will be at the Quincy Mall on Sunday, January 31st. Jenkins will meet fans and sign autographs from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m in the Fountain Court.
Congratulations goes out to Ken Griffey Junior and Mike Piazza. Both were named last week to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. No player has ever been voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame unanimously, but Griffey Jr. came pretty close. He was three votes shy of being a unanimous choice. He received 99.3 % of the votes and Piazza garnered 83% of the votes which is nothing to sneeze at either.
In January of 2013 the Quincy Park District announced that their new park on Bonansinga Drive would be known as Lincoln Park. The Park District had asked the public to submit names to be considered and you can’t go wrong with the name of Lincoln. I had submitted the name of Elvin Tappe. So Elvin lost out to Lincoln, but so did Steven Douglas.
There is no secret that I am a New York Yankee fan, but what is somewhat of a secret is, what team do I like after that? That secret is now out. It's the Kansas City Royals, the World Series Champions! I am no bandwagon fan, either.
With the Major League Baseball Playoffs underway it is time to review the Big Dog's pre-season picks. Of the 10 teams in the playoffs, I selected 5 of them to be there. So I guess I did alright on my picks.
So the man has the all-time hit record for Major League Baseball with 4256 hits yet he is NOT in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Pete Rose, the man who said “I'd walk through hell in a gasoline suit to play baseball”, played the game as hard as anyone has ever played it.
The Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals for the first time in thirty years have won their divisions in the same year. Both teams will also have home field advantage in the American League and National League.
The song came out in 1908 and it is played at almost every baseball game played in America including the Hannibal Cavemen and the Quincy Gems games. It’s the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” song and that song has single handedly sent the sales of Cracker Jack through the roof. In the song there is a line that says “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack.”
Mike Trout of the L.A. Angels homered off L.A. Dodgers’ ace Zack Greinke to lead off the game, and the American League doubled up the National League, 6-3, in the MLB All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati on Tuesday night.
