mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
Sad news, as Dave Bergman, one of the '84 Bless You Boys has passed away too soon at age 61. Acquired right before the start of the magical '84 season, Bergman was the everyday first baseman except when spelled from time to time by Darrel Evans.
He may not have had the star power of some of the other guys on that team, but he had some great moments.
I'm a bad embedder, so here are links to a couple great memories:

Bless you, Mr. Bergman. You were part of an amazing summer that many of us will never forget.
Per everywhere, Jon Lester has signed with the Cubs. 6 years, 155 Million. Now the Offseason can begin in earnest.
Mothers, raise your sons to be Left handed pitchers.
The answer to this is yes. MLB All-Star Madison Bumgarner once dated a girl named Madison Bumgarner. Now please return to your jobs or whatever it is you do on a Tuesday afternoon.
Is there anyone out there with a son who has attended any of the winter Michigan baseball camps (or attended them yourself as a player)? My son is a freshman in high school and a pitcher. Since it's out of town for us, it involves hotels, traveling, etc...I want to make sure it's worthwhile for him. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Finally. After questioning why these two rivals haven't played a game at the home of the Tigers (while MSU and CMU played there the past 3 years in a row), it has finally happened.
Michigan Baseball will take on MSU at Comerica Park on 4/14/2015 at 6:35pm.
This game will be a non-conference game. Due to Jim Delany being a moron and inviting Rutgers and Maryland into the B1G, Michigan will not play either rival in a B1G game this season.
This will be the 3rd season of the 2010s where Michigan doesn't face Ohio State. Sad.
I'm really hoping these two can eventually come to my hometown and play at the minor league stadium that's coming in May.
