Albert Pujols’ 500th home run will be an achievement worthy of our attention

If you learned to love baseball in the 1980′s and early 1990′s such as myself, than you’ll remember the days when 35 home runs was enough to lead either league, and that the 54 homers hit by Cecil Fielder in 1991 was a very big deal.

It’s Always Thumb Thing With Hamilton

Lots of people tried to explain to me why you don't slide into first base. I still don't get it, so apparently I'm dense. Is 1st base lifted higher than other bases?
