Baseball Bulletin... Friday, March 24, 2017

Well, here I am, a day after my Michigan Wolverines were bounced from the Sweet 16, trying to focus on anything but hoops.

Today I'm venturing back into the radio thing, 5 years after I last broadcast.

It's all baseball  this time around, focusing solely on this surrounding our great game.

Here's how you can listen.

Here's some baseball stuff I've come across lately.....

⚾ The United States of America won their first ever World Baseball Classic Championship after beating Puerto Rico, 8-0, on Wednesday Night at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

It was the single greatest baseball tournament I've ever watched, a celebration of baseball world wide in Japan, Korea, The Netherlands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the United States, Canada, Columbia...a truly global represention of baseball.

51, 565 cheering baseball fans saw the American Baseball team defeat Puerto Rico at Chavez Ravine.

A record 2.3 Million viewers watched the game on The MLB Network.

ESPN had the Spanish broadcast, on ESPN Deportes and ESPN 2.

Somehow...not sure how...some baseball fans weren't paying attention the previous two weeks, and blamed ESPN for only broadcasting the game in Spanish, getting very upset.... they should've known that all the English speaking  WBC games were broadcast on the MLB Network.

⚾ Again this year New Era and MLB  are using the hash tag #CapsOn to celebrate Opening Day across the big leagues.

Fans can go here to enter New Era's 2017 Ultimate Fan Giveaway.

⚾ Benjamin Hill at Ben's Biz has the battle of Bacon vs Tacos.

I chose Bacon... purely based on the ballcaps.

⚾ Hail to the Flying Squirrels  is a brand new theme song for the Richmond Flying Squirrels. 

Tim Tebow is headed to Single-A  all with the Columia Fireflies.... get your Tebow jerseys right here.

⚾ USA Today wants to know if you can identity all 30 ballparks...from above.

...Good Luck...I had to stop after a few.

⚾ Former big league catcher David Ross is on Dancing with the Stars and his first dance was a HOME RUN !

And if a World Series ring with last year's Cubs and the DWTS gig wasn't enough, Shawn Anderson of Hall of Very Good says there's a movie about Ross in the works.

⚾ A 1956 Topps Roberto Clemente Baseball Card sold for $100,099.

Kevin Kiermaier of the Tampa Bay Rays signed a 6-year contract with the team.

⚾ Former big league pitcher and manager Dallas Green has passed away at age 82.

Rest in Peace Mr. Green...enjoy the great ballgame in Heaven. 😇

Play Ball! ⚾
