All sports are special, but the "Boys of Summer" own America's heart.  The national pastime is and always will be


Playing by pre-1880 rules (as do the players on this Mansfield, Ohio, team) gives advantages to the defense (catching the ball on one bounce means the batter is out) and gives advantages to the batter (the pitcher tosses underhanded in "a manner suitable to the batter").  Both teams are expected to display "gentlemanly sportsmanship".

Tribe Makes Post Season (Briefly)

The Cleveland Indians finished the 2013 Season 92 and 70, good enough for 2nd place in the American League Central, one game behind first place Detroit.  The tribe won all of their last 10 regular season games to earn a wildcard berth, but were one and done in the post season, blanked 4 to 0 by the Tampa Bay Rays.  Tribe bats almost put starting Rays pitcher Alex Cob on the robes in both the 4th and 5th innings, but Cleveland failed to score both times.  Tampa Bay went on to experience the Red Sox buzz saw, falling 12 to 2 and 7 to 4 in games 1 and 2 of the series before pulling off a 5 to 4 win in game 3.  The end for the Rays came in game 4, with Boston advancing on a 3 to 1 win.

Boston Captures Their Third World Series Title in Nine Years

The St Louis Cardinals literally got run over by a freight train called fate.  The Cards, favored by some going into the series with Boston, never found their rhythm against the Red Sox who ousted St Louis in six games, winning the final contest by a 6 to 1 score.  The Sox entered the play-offs after having led the American East with 97 wins.  On a team which is all-around good there are sometimes no stand-outs, but Boston had World Series MVP David Ortiz, hitting a blistering .688 and playing some respectable "D" at first base during the three games in the series which did not allow a designated hitter.

Cleveland says Goodbye to Perez

Closer Chris Perez tossed 25 saves for the Tribe this past season, but that was not enough to save his job in Cleveland.  Chris was invited, instead, to take his sometimes ill-advised off the field comments to some other city, although insiders say earlier efforts by Cleveland to find a team which wanted Perez in a trade found no takers.
