I don't know what was a bigger story - Derek Jeter's 3000th hit being a homerun or the fact that a 23-year-old dude named Christian Lopez just gave the ball back to the Yankees and didn't want anything in return.
What on earth was this guy thinking?
CC Sabathia was nearly unhittable on Thursday afternoon. The lefty tied a career-high with 13 strikeouts as the New York Yankees shutout the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-0.
Mark Teixeira hit his 300th career homerun to power the Yanks to their 5th straight win.
I'm not a big fan of throwing the ball back into the stands after a homerun. I think it's a pretty lame tradition in baseball.
But yesterday, a Cubs fan proved that throwing the ball back after an opponent's homerun can be quite entertaining.
April 23rd. That's the last time Jorge Posada hit a homerun. A lot has happened since that time. The former catcher lost his spot as the Yankees DH, was dropped to 9th in the order and is now primarily used as a pinch hitter.
But Posada made the most of rare start in the first game of a day/night doubleheader at Cincinnati. His 2-run homerun proved to be the game-winner as the Yankees defeated
We always talk about traditions in sports. The Pinstripes, the "Play Like A Champion" sign at Notre Dame and the 7th inning stretch are all examples of cool traditions.
Let's face it, traditions are what brings fans together, and in some cases, show your loyalty to a team.
That said, there's one tradition in sports that drives me nuts!
