Even though I'm a Yankees fan (neg away), I won't claim that Pettitte or the team did anything that I hope any other MLB player or club wouldn't do for this boy. I was touched by the fact that we never know how seemingly insignificant events (daughter's academic recognition at the game) can lead to life changing experiences. As a parent, I can't believe the irony that a licensed optometrist and an emergency room doctor would have a son that was born basically blind. It's also a lesson to never pass up the opportunity to be generous to others, even if it's just with sports tickets!
I still remember having the chance to go on the field of the Yankees' then AAA club the Clippers when I was a young boy after we won our Little League title. There's just something that gets me when I see a story about a child's life being improved in any way, but especially by sports. I'm not expressing this very well, but this just really touched me. Probably nothing to see here but enjoy your day wherever it finds you.
Fresh off a three game sweep of the Twins, a beautiful day for baseball, the Tigers got to be feeling good about themselves. The Red Sox have to remember that drubbing to begin the season at Comerica, they should be up for this one too!
These schools do not like each other one bit.
Taking on the Indians in game 3. Verlander vs. Masterson.
For all of you trolling Leyland-haters, feel free to stay out of this thread. Nobody cares about what you have to say. Now, if you want to have reasoned discourse, then feel free to add your thoughts. Just stay away from name-calling, all caps, and lots of exclamation points.
After going down in embarrassing fashion last night 15-2, Michigan made a 7th inning comeback to upset the cornhuskers 6-5 tonight at Ray Fisher Stadium.
This was pitcher Brandon Sinnery's final game as a Wolverine. He pitched a complete game and was mobbed at the mound when Michigan got the double play to win. In this dark period for the program, Sinnery has been the team's best pitcher. So it was nice to see him get sent off on a good note.
Michigan will face nebraska tomorrow in their season finale at Ray Fisher Stadium at 1:05pm. The game will be on MGoBlueTV and broadcast live on 1290 WLBY.
