Top 5 Hardest Pitches to Hit in Baseball

Create: 06/27/2016 - 18:29

Baseball is a pitcher's game, so I compiled a list of what I believe are the nastiest pitches in the game today. With so many exceptional pitchers, this wasn't an easy list to create.

Honorable Mention:

Yu Darvish- Slider

Darvish has one of the nastiest sliders in not only today's game, but maybe the history of the game. Darvish would have made this list if he wasn't plagued by injuries in recent years.

Create: 06/27/2016 - 14:59

For many baseball players today, the game “Backyard Baseball” brings back so many childhood memories. It's a game filled with professional baseball players along with fictional characters as well.

A cool feature in the game is the usage of power-ups. These game-changing items were engraved in our minds when playing the game as we could only hope to draw a good one. With the College World Series final set between the Arizona Wildcats and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, let's see what players from Coastal would choose as their go to power-up, via NCAA.com:

Just when people thought Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully couldn't be any better, he proved them all wrong.

When a foul ball found its way to the broadcast booth Wednesday night, the legendary broadcaster found a way to give back to his fans. At first, he looked for a child to toss the ball to and when he failed to find one, he put it up for grabs. 

Check out Scully send a lucky fan home with a ball in the link below.

Jose Reyes, once a fa- loved All-Star, hasn’t seen the field at all this year due to domestic abuse charges filed last year.

With Reyes working off the punishment, it could be sooner than later that we see a return of Reyes to the big leagues. As the Rockies are looking for trade options, he could end up in a familiar territory.

Great Pierogie Race ends in dramatic fashion

Like many major league cathedrals, the Pittsburgh Pirates host a race in between the game for excitement and laughs.

The Great Pierogie Race is a race between innings during the Pirates game that features six contestants racing in giant pierogie costumes: Potato Pete (Blue), Jalapeño Hannah (Green), Cheese Chester (Yellow), Sauerkraut Saul (Red), Oliver Onion (Purple), and Bacon Burt (Orange). On June 22, the Pirates hosted a wrestling night to honor Kurt Angle, Booker T, and Scott Steiner. Let’s just say this race fit right in with the event.

Cupid Strikes in Miami

Love seemed to be in the air Sunday during a Miami Marlins game.

After a boy got a hold of a game ball as the Marlins took on the Rockies, he made the ultimate first impression. With a little encouragement from his mother, the boy handed the ball to a young girl who looked to be the same age.

Watch Cupid's arrow strike the young boy in the link below:

Baker continues to dominate at the plate

After the College World Series, it's going to be hard to find somebody who doesn't know who TCU freshman designated hitter Luken Baker is.

Coming off his biggest at bat of the year in which he unloaded a towering shot over the left field bullpen in the ninth inning to give TCU the victory over Big 12 rival Texas Tech, Baker provided fans with another spectacular performance against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (watch in the video below).
