Mike McWain of Pasco decided it would be a good idea to pay homage to the game of baseball by getting iconic baseball images tattooed across his back and arms. The "mural" includes famous ballplayers such as Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Lou Gehrig and Ty Cobb (just to name a few). The tattoo of Yankees stadium apparently took six to nine hours to complete. All told McWain spent around $10k and spent 180 hours getting the tattoos completed. "The first sport I ever remember watching on television was baseball," McWain said. "I was about 8 years old, and I watched the whole game, which was unusual for me. I think Pete Rose was playing." "There were a lot of reasons I waited so long to finish this," he said. "At the t...

Washington man shows off his love of baseball with $10,000 worth of tattoos

I may be reaching here, but this guy might be a pretty big baseball fan. That massively inked back belongs to Mike McWain of Pasco, Washington, a man so fond of baseball history that he turned his body into an homage to the great players of yesteryear, in what the Tri-City Herald refers to as McWain’s own personal Field of Dreams.  All the greats are there, from Babe Ruth to...

Red Sox Legend Ted Willams’ Memorabilia To Be Auctioned Off

Anytime I think about Ted Williams, it reminds me of my grandmother who passed away 10 years ago this past February. Of course she was a huge Red Sox fan and I get a lot of my love of sports from her. I would visit her house and stay with her and my grandfather and [...]

Oldest former major leaguer turns 101 in Cuba

Conrado Marrero can still remember the crisp feeling of slipping on his Washington Senators uniform, and the surge of adrenaline he got staring down Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams and other major league batters. But the diminutive right-hander's glory days are a world - and a revolution - away. The Cuban pitcher who last year became the oldest living former big leaguer turned 101...

Red Sox slugger Ted Williams was large, controversial in life, and when he died at the age of 83 his life was still controversial. After years of hearing about the messy business of his posthumous fate - the cyronic freezing of his body, allegations of "mishandling" of his remains, this week's "Ted Williams memorabilia auction" will...

The BP Wayback Machine: Royal Flush by James Click

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to...

The Underrated Moose Skowron

Home run hitters tend to have nicknames. Babe Ruth was “The Bambino,” Dave Kingman was “Kong,” David Ortiz ”Big Papi” and Frank Thomas the “Big Hurt.” Bill “Moose” Skowron was a power hitting first baseman for the Yankees in the 1950s, but his nickname had nothing to do with anything he did on the field. “My grandfather shaved off all my hair when I was...

Wezen-Ball: Google Wars by Larry Granillo

Our view of the world is a bit skewed, especially as Baseball Prospectus readers. For us, it's baseball here, baseball there—we probably even see baseballs in scoops of ice cream or in sunrises. A close encounter of the third kind would likely bring us face to face with Babe Ruth or Harmon Killebrew as we carve Yankee Stadium out of a pile of mashed potatoes. A day without...
