World Series Game 7 was the most stressful 5-1 baseball game possible – SB Nation

Thursday, November 02, 2017

Looking at it from the outside, World Series Game 7 was an easy win for the Astros. If you match it up with almost any other game in the series, it was practically a cakewalk. Of course each player gave all of the effort they possessed to make sure they won, grinding out plays in the infield and running out every last inch. But in the grand scheme of things,…

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State announced its 2018 baseball schedule Wednesday, a slate that includes 37 home games at Dick Howser Stadium and 21 games against teams that participated in the 2017 NCAA Tournament. “This will be an exciting year against another tough slate of opponents,” head coach Mike Martin said. “We think our fans will enjoy the teams coming to Tallahassee, but our road schedule is a challenge as well….

Another Game 7 Provides a Perfect Ending for the Astros – New York Times

Thursday, November 02, 2017

The Astros’ hopes for a Game 7 blowout stalled when the Dodgers quickly lifted starter Yu Darvish, who faced just 10 batters and allowed half of them to score. After that, the pitchers on both sides took over, making for a tense finale, if not a classic, in the first World Series Game 7 ever held at Dodger Stadium, the third-oldest venue in the majors. The Astros had never even…

Dodgers and Astros Arrive at a Newly Popular Destination: Game 7 – New York Times

Thursday, November 02, 2017

For historical resonance, nothing could have topped last year, when the Chicago Cubs won their first championship since 1908 against a Cleveland Indians team that had the second-longest title drought, dating to 1948. That series went seven games, with the Cubs blowing a late lead but prevailing, after a rain delay, in the 10th inning. Now, another Series between two desperate teams has gone all the way. The Dodgers are…

Sports Poll asks questions of Goodell, brain injuries and baseball – The Setonian

Posted By Staff Writer on Nov 1, 2017 In the back corner, on the fifth floor of Jubilee Hall sits Seton Hall’s Sports Poll, a calling center dedicated to covering issues and controversies in sports. According to the poll’s website, it is the first and only active cold-calling service about sports. “The feeling was that there was no national sports poll [or no] scientific sports poll that measured people’s feeling…

A history of truly absurd (and possibly true) baseball conspiracy theories – GolfDigest.com

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

If Twitter’s number-crunching coalition of baseball apologists are to be believed, the 2017 World Series has been not only one of the best in recent memory, but the best ever. Full stop. When things go “right” in post-PED baseball, however, the question is always “what’s the catch?”, and in the case of this year’s moonshot-pocked Fall Classic, the answer is the same no matter who you ask: Juiced baseballs. Baseballs…

A look inside South Korean baseball’s elaborate ‘cheer culture’ – ABC News

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Drumbeats roar and electric music plays as people dressed in uniforms swing to the rhythm together. At first, it may seem like a rock concert, but this is actually what a South Korean baseball game is all about. South Korean baseball’s “cheer culture” is in many ways just as important as the game itself. Fans wear team uniforms and hit balloon sticks together to make some noise as cheerleaders dressed…

Naval Academy Baseball Classic scrapped due to territorial issue between Nationals, Orioles – Washington Post

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The Nationals will not be returning to Annapolis for the Naval Academy Baseball Classic this spring. (Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post) The Nationals have built a strong relationship with the military since baseball returned to D.C., culminating with last spring’s Naval Academy Baseball Classic. The April 1 game, which ended in a 4-4 tie with the Boston Red Sox, was played at Max Bishop Stadium in Annapolis in front of 1,030…

Baseball, Hot Dogs and Apple Pie. Washed Down With Champagne. – New York Times

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

As Major League Baseball’s postseason is nearing the biggest celebration of all — the Houston Astros need one more victory to win the World Series, the Dodgers need two — it seems appropriate to ask: Where does this ritual come from? “Great question, but I have no idea,” said Cubs reliever Pedro Strop, who celebrated a lot last year when his team snapped a 108-year drought and finally won the…

Altuve, Correa cement status as baseball’s greatest duo | New York … – New York Post

HOUSTON — Ruth and Gehrig. Mantle and Maris. Ramirez and Ortiz. Altuve and Correa? Maybe it’s just the fatigue kicking in after a crazy-long and just plain crazy night at Minute Maid Park. But is there any other middle-of-the-lineup combination in baseball you’d rather have right now — and in whose future you’d invest — than the Astros’ Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa? Especially when you consider their defensive value?…

The Astros and Dodgers broke the game of baseball into a million pieces – SB Nation

Monday, October 30, 2017

HOUSTON — Words fail. Analogies go limp. A common refrain for a game like Game 5 of the 2017 World Series is that baseball is drunk. Baseball is not drunk. Drunk people don’t fall up the stairs, through a window, and explode upon contact with the moon. This is not a movie. Movies have plots, logical progressions from A to B. This is not an avant-garde movie, either, where the…
