Ballboys don't get much love. Sure, the ball*girls* get a lot of love, and the older ball*dudes* get a lot of love, but the regular ol' ballboys typically get ignored. This Twins ballboy deserves some love for making an unreal catch during Thursday's White Sox-Twins game. Alexei Ramirez of the White Sox hit a liner foul in the fourth inning, and the ballboy jumped and caught the ball a split second before it smashed a fan. Seriously, just watch that video again. Look at the height he got on his leap! Considering how hard that ball was hit by Ramirez, he didn't have much time to react, and to make a play like that is pretty awesome. Furthermore, after making the catch, he nonchalantly gave a fan a fistbump, and tossed the ball to a kid. My hat's off to you, Mr Ballboy. [follow]

Ramirez Never Rests...Literally

Throughout his time with the White Sox, Alexei Ramirez has been graced with some nicknames. The most common is certainly “The Cuban Missile,” but my father and mother like to call him “Bones” and “The Cuban Skeleton” due to his lanky frame. Despite being poked fun of for his skinny body type, Alexei Ramirez could be earning a new nickname this season: “Iron Man...

Heath Optioned to AAA, Omogrosso Recalled

In what’s surely to be the most groundbreaking move in Major League Baseball this season, the White Sox optioned Deunte Heath to AAA Charlotte after yesterday’s loss in Minnesota, and Brian Omogrosso was recalled to take his place in the bullpen. Ok, I’m being sarcastic. This is pretty insignificant when it comes to roster moves, as we are talking about a team basically...
