Starting Lineups: Would There Be More African-American In MLB If Michael Jordan Had Made The Majors?

Last night on ESPN’s telecast of the Atlanta Braves versus the Philadelphia Phillies, Dan Shulman, Aaron Boone and Tim Kurkjian discussed the topic that comes up every mid-April. The issue of the low percentage of African-Americans in Major League Baseball has circled around the sport for too long, and rehashing the points of contention is almost […] The post Starting Lineups...

ESPN experimented with an MLB pregame show on Monday

Fans tuning in to ESPN2 at 4:30 on Monday had something unexpected on their television screens – Baseball Tonight All-Access. The pregame show was announced with relatively short notice, but was put together pretty well.

It’s Not Opening Day Until It’s Fenway Opening Day

This afternoon, we’ll see the third World Series ring ceremony at Fenway Park in ten years. Does that even make sense? Take a minute, if you must, to let it soak in. And try to remember where you were when Aaron Boone took Timmy Wakefield yard in the 2003 ALCS. And the hangover you woke up with the next day. And how you couldn’t bring yourself to eat or drink or listen to sports...

ESPN’s Aaron Boone Talks Baseball, CHD Awareness, and More

In February we celebrate Heart Awareness month. One of those weeks in that month we recognize and raise awareness for the disease known as Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).

To help with that cause I had the great fortune to speak...

Video: Aaron Boone and Rick Sutcliffe preview this weekend's series

It would not be an exaggeration at all to call Cincinnati's series against the Pirates this weekend the biggest regular season series in Great American Ball Park history. The right to host next Tuesday's National League Wild Card is on the line and both squads play signicantly better at home. So, the fate of each team's season may come down to who wins the series this...
