Wild end

What a wild final night of baseball in the 2012 regular season. The night started off with several possibilities.

Being a Detroit Tigers fan I wanted the Tigers to win and the Texas Rangers to lose. If that would have happened, both teams would have ended the season with the exact same record. If that were the case Detroit would have gone on to be the 2nd seed in the America League and played either the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or the Boston Red Sox in the first round with home field… Continue

Catching Hell: ESPN Films

Finally! ESPN is airing "Catching Hell"! I have been waiting for this one ever since reading about it on Ballpark Chasers.

work and dedication to accomplish but, hell, I’m an American Soldier.  I can do anything! 

Let me start from the beginning.  Hi, my name is RJ Breisacher.  My guys call me SGT B.  I prefer RJ considering by the time next baseball season rolls around I will no longer be in the military.  I am currently deployed to Afghanistan.  In 2008-2009 I was in…

#19 Asheville Tourists

On a sunny and hot North Carolina summer, my lady and I ventured with our two dogs to the mountainside of the Appalachians. In between the Bilmore Estate, the hippie streets of downtown Asheville, and blue mountains of Appalachia is nestled the downhome McCormick Field. In late July, we visited my #19 ballpark, and it was everything minor league baseball should be.
