Found June 07, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
Seattle Mariners decided to go with offense for the 12th pick in this year’s draft.  Seattle selected third baseman D.J. Peterson from New Mexico for this reason. Peterson is one of those players that has put up solid numbers, but did not receive much recognition for his solid production. They had a need for a power bat, and he offered one of the best all-around bats in the draft. While some people have defensive questions about him, his bat will play anywhere. He had a monster year for New Mexico, and then led Team USA in home runs and RBIs over the summer. He is also an advanced hitter with plus power, and one who is not afraid to take a walk. Peterson played both corners defensively, mostly playing first while with USA Baseball. Some of the scouts that saw him felt he was the best pure hitter, especially in the college ranks, in this draft class.  The scouts love his hitting ability, he has short, hitter’s arms, tremendous bat speed and strength, and always hits balls on the scre...

Grown Man Steam Rolls Child For A Kyle Seager Home Run Ball

I’m hoping the adult didn’t see him, right at the end it looks like he checks up and tries to slow himself.  Due to the proximity of him and the kid, I’m guessing its his own kid so I give him a pass.  But still that kid got erased by the big fella.  Is a Kyle Seager HR really that valuable?

Jerk of the day: Man steamrolls kid to get homerun ball

The Mariners’ Kyle Seager’s game-tying grand slam ball in the 14th inning was certainly something this guy wanted, and he wasn’t going to let some little child get in his way. There weren’t too many in attendance during the long the extra innings, and this man and child were the only two in their row, so I’m assuming this child is the man’s son. Way to go dad!

Almost.  The Seattle Mariners made baseball history last night, but it wasn’t enough to get a sweep over the Chicago White Sox.  In major league baseball history, Kyle Seager became the first player to hit a grand slam in extra innings to tie a game, and no team had ever scored five or more runs in the 14th inning or late to tie a game.  After thirteen innings of 0-0, the White...
