Move over Mike Trout, Boston College center fielder Maria Pandolfo may have something to teach you about snagging home runs. During the third inning of BC’s Sunday matchup with Georgia Tech, Alysha Rudnik got ahold of one, sending the ball to deep center. Unfortunately for Rudnik, that’s where Pandolfo plays, as the latter came up with a home-run-saving grab so awesome it even took the camera operator by surprise. Check out Pandolfo’s amazing catch in the video below.

Angels giving away these Mike Trout fish hats because trouts are fish

For their June 18 game against the Mariners the Angels are giving away these Mike Trout fish hats to honor the AL Rookie of the Year who shares his last name with the species belonging to the Oncorhynchus genera (Ed note: chicks dig complicated science speak).

Do You Love Mike Trout Enough to Look Completely Ridiculous?

Thought so. You can snag one of these fancy Trout caps when the Los Angeles Angels face the Seattle Mariners (how fitting) on June 18. Not in the Anaheim area? No problem. Since the less-fancy, first edition foam Trout hats are going for roughly $25 on eBay, the newer models will likely be bartered online in no time.  Besides, they really don't look any more ridiculous...

Video: Boston College Softball Player Makes Absurd Homerun-Robbing Catch

Boston College center fielder Maria Pandolfo may have made the play of the year in college softball last night.

Catch Of The Year Candidate From a College Softball Game

Pretty incredible catch and filming effort. [Bob's...

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

By Glen Mckee, columnist  Look on the bright side! As I write this it is overcast outside in Southern California, and I’m enjoying the change in weather.  What I’m definitely not enjoying is Angels baseball.  I did enjoy the game I went to Friday night, thanks to surprise tickets from my girlfriend, but that was the exception.  That was a well-played game...

Burke Shoots for Stanford Offer

Pennsylvania outside linebacker Tyler Burke has 11 offers, with Boston College the latest to reach out this past Friday. Most of these schools are on the Atlantic seaboard, and with Stanford yet to offer, all lie east of the Mississippi. Yet the Cardinal stand out, and not only on a map, as the junior told The Bootleg this weekend.

Extension suggestion: Mark Trumbo

As the baseball world patiently waits for the Angels and Mike Trout to do the right thing and agree to a lengthy and borderline ridiculous contract extension, there are other concerns that need to be addressed. In this new baseball landscape, just about every single All-Star-ish caliber player signs a contract extension that buys out at least one year of free agency. Since the...

Machado, 20, excelling as young star

For more than a year, baseball has been buzzing about the Angels' Mike Trout and Nationals' Bryce Harper, two transcendent young talents, the sport's answer to Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Hit the pause button. A third player soon might enter the conversation, if he doesn't belong in it already. Orioles third baseman Manny Machado, 20, is 11 months younger than...

Angels blow early lead, lose to Orioles 8-4

The game started out so promissing. Jerome Williams gave up a run in the top of the first, and the Angels responded by scoring three in the bottom of the first. Even when the Orioles rallied back on a two-run homerun by JJ Hardy, Trout gave them the lead again one a solo homerun. However, it just wasn't meant to be. The Angels had two opportunities with the bases loaded and got...
