That's pretty much it. Thought everyone should see this unusual, slightly confusing, and yet strangely endearing video. Does anyone know about this ritual/process? Know what he's checking for? Seen him do it before?
Doesn't matter what fan you are you have to love Matt Kemp for doing this.
Whilst at the WBC, Clefo videotaped the last out. I thought the footage kind of looked like a lo-fi Terrence Malick film, well, one thing led to another.
As a baseball fan, this play by Manny Machado is amazing. Go Orioles! And might I refresh your memory that he is a shortstop, not a 3rd baseman by trade. Remarkable, heads-up play in that situation.

As described by sonic b in last night's recap, here's video of possibly the most unusual ending to a game you'll ever see, with a D-backs affiliate the winner, as sonic mentioned in last night's recap. Ty Linton hit a 2-run bomb in the top of the 10th inning of a Pioneer League game in Helena, MT, to give Missoula the lead. But In the bottom of the 10th, Raul Mondesi, Jr. hit a would-be game tying two-run homer. However, watch him as he crosses home plate... [Hat-tips to Corby and Red Reign]
Stumbled upon this nifty YouTube of some prospect of ours named Trevor Bauer, perhaps you have heard of him?
Courtesy of fandbacks, here's footage of Drew's home-run hit in Tucson over the weekend. Obviously, it's phone quality, but I note his ankle seems to be working pretty well as he rounds the bases. :)
Rob Neyer's goes through his mailbag for the week.
Justin Upton talks about his longest home-run; He is also part of MLB's Opening Day national ad campaign, Upton promises to “make it hail in the bleachers.” as part of a series of bold predictions by baseball stars. Bring your umbrellas to Chase, folks....
