Francisco Cervelli took a foul ball to the dick in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game against the Tigers. In real time, it was hard to tell where he actually got hit and when the trainer came out to check him out it looked like he was grabbing Cervelli's shoulder area. That led YES analyst Ken Singleton to wonder…
North Carolina has suspended four players—starting cornerbacks Desmond Lawrence and Brian Walker and backups M.J. Stewart and Donnie Miles—after it was revealed the school is investigating an alleged hazing incident that left walk-on freshman wideout Jackson Boyer with a concussion.
You might say this GIF is too long. You would be wrong, and have no understanding of things like delayed gratification and rising action, but you might say something stupid like "this GIF is too long." Do yourself a favor: don't say that, and just watch. It's beautiful.
So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to…
Rest in peace, baseball. You were hit so damn hard, and flew so damn far, that you were at least not in much pain when you left this earth.
Four people died Monday night when a rented, single-engine Cessna crashed and burned soon after taking off from Cuyahoga County Regional Airport near Cleveland, Ohio. All four, including the pilot, were students at Case Western Reserve University, and the three passengers were on the varsity wrestling team.
And it's...not terrible? I honestly have no idea. Listening to country music is a lot like drinking fancy wine for me—I get drunk and regret everything—but I think this song of John Daly's here is not terrible. It's called Hit It Hard and it sounds like Bon Jovi with a splash of what I believe pop country music to be.
The asshole you see repeatedly kicking and yanking this dog all over the place—at one point lifting the dog up off the ground by the leash—is Desmond Hague, CEO of Centerplate. If you've ever been to a sporting event, you've probably bought something from him; Centerplate is a food service company that makes the …
This is like synchronized swimming, but with two Jesuses on the Galilee in football pads.
In the third inning, Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce hit back-to-back home runs. In the fifth inning, Delmon Young, J.J. Hardy, and Chris Davis went back-to-back-to-back. Then, with a 9-1 lead, Adam Jones went and stole a home run from Evan Longoria and doubled-up Matt Joyce trying to tag up to second base.
The Bucknell Bison roster page is a treasure trove of goofy profile pictures. In what has to be a concerted effort to have the weirdest looking team, players posed with wacky faces, bizarre facial and top-of-the-head hair, and People's Eyebrows. It's great fun.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Be peace.
Yasiel Puig tried to score from second base on a ground-ball double play in the bottom of the sixth inning against the Mets. He did not score; he turned a double play into a triple play. So...it did not go well.
South Korea beat Chicago's Jackie Robinson West in the Little League World Series Championship 8-4 today. It featured a pretty solid bat flip from Dong Wan Sin (above) and also a really cool bit of sportsmanship after the game (below).
Jets cornerback Dimitri Patterson has been missing since Friday's game at MetLife Stadium against the Giants. He was present for meetings, a walk through, and the pre-game meal Friday, but was a no-show come game time. The Jets have not been able to speak with Patterson directly but his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has…
Rams quarterback Sam Bradford went down in the first quarter of the Rams preseason game against the Browns last night with a left knee injury. Bradford was playing in his second game since returning from a season-ending ACL tear of the same knee last year. Initially it was believed that Bradford's injury was not that…
