Tigers vs White Sox Game 1

Live From Woodward

Game Recap

After the original season opening game was postponed, due to inclement weather, a little anticipation was built up. Dare say antsy-ness. We’ve waited six months, what’s one more day?

The Tigers and White Sox game didn’t disappoint. There was action, damn near from the opening pitch. Or maybe I was just excited.

The White Sox wasted little time getting on the board. In the bottom of the first, with a man on first base, Melky Caberra stepped to the plate. He hit a line drive to right field, driving in Tyler Saladino and his mustache, and although Saladino scored, Melky got thrown out going for the triple.

At the top of the second inning, the Tigers had men on first and third with no outs. 24 year old Jacoby Jones steps to the plate, making his first Major League debut. One would think he would be nervous, under the bright lights, and hype of…

Baseball I think I love you, again

Baseball,

Oh how I missed thee. If Basketball is my first love, Baseball is definitely a close second. Almost like my long time mistress. I spent days and nights watching the A’s, but I had so many favorite players around the Majors. I can remember playing in little league, wanting to steal bases like Rickey Henderson

I sucked at stealing bases, despite my deceptive chubby kid speed. I did however have have 8, count’em — 8, inside the park homers.

When I was coming up, batting stances were important.

I modeled mine after Ken Griffey, Jr. (I was a righty though)

I can remember wanting to play shortstop. Seemed like that’s where the athletes were. Even when I was a kid, I thought I was an athlete.

I wanted to play shortstop like Ozzie Smith,

He was like an infield wizard or something.

And does anyone remember a young skinny kid named Barry Bonds?

Wonder what ever happened to that guy?

Yes, my childhood was flooded with stars, and from the looks of things — the future of the game looks like it’s in good hands. I did some part time Baseball watching last season..

 

I’m announcing my recommitment to baseball this year!!

Uh hello, Is this thing on?!

 

Anyway,

I’m actually excited.

If you were wondering who my favorite player is these days, it’s definitely this guy:

Khris Davis had 42 Homeruns, 102 RBI’s 137 hits, and 85 runs. Solid season to say the least.  Considering the A’s finished last in the AL West (69-93), He and Marcus Semien were bright spots in Oakland.

Other young cats around the MLB that made me love baseball again were:

Mike Trout (Am I wrong?)

 Bryce Harper (He’s dope)

Carlos Correa (Oakland Headache)

Jose Altuve (The Oakland Problem)

Robinson Cano (Still Dope!)

That’s a just a few of many that made me make baseball, must watch in 2016.

I’m looking forward to covering baseball in 2017, and I’ll most likely exclusively be covering the A’s. It’s only January 31st, and I’m ready!

Thanks for reading✌🏿
