The Bob Feller Museum Is The Place To Be!!!

There are a ton of great websites out there paying homage to the game’s greatest players.  While some sit stagnant and only update content 1 or 2 times a year, there are quite a few that remain fresh with new content added on a regular basis.

Of them, I think that one of the best is the Bob Feller Museum.  This site is full of great graphics and features a ton of information about the oldest, living member of the Hall of Fame. 

In addition to the incredible content of the site, the museum holds a lot of events with current and former players to raise funds.  They have quite a schedule lined up and I wanted to pass this info along as there are some incredible guests lined up.

Check this out:

Fergie Jenkins – June 26, 2009

Jim Kaat – July 1, 2009

Reggie Jackson – July 11-13, 2009

Dale Murphy – September 19, 2009

For full details about the events and costs for these autograph sessions, click here.  The museum offers the opportunity to obtain autographs from some of the sport’s biggest stars at a lower price than what you may be asked to pay at a large convention or baseball card show.

Check out the museum.  You should like what you see!!!

So This Is Where Barry Bonds Has Been Hiding…

It has been a while since we’ve heard the name or seen recent video of Barry Bonds.  and of all of the places that we may have thought he’d be hanging out, I for one would have never thought we would find him here…

That must be ‘The Cream’ that he’s having, huh???

1980 Headline – ‘Rickey Henderson Debuts For The A’s’

It all started on this day 30 years ago…

Rickey Henderson’s debut with the Oakland A’s on June 24, 1979 is when it all began.  In the game, Henderson’s A’s team took on the Texas Rangers in Oakland, CA.  The A’s lost the game 5-1, but Rickey gave us a glimpse of what was to come..

In the game Henderson batted lead-off and went 2-for-4 with a single and a double.  He also picked up the first stolen base of his career, which as we all know was just the start of his amazing run as the game’s greatest lead-off hitter!!

Happy Anniversary Rickey!!!
