Recap of the 1964 All Star Game

On the day the 84th annual MLB All Star Game returns to Queens for the first time in 49 years, it seems fitting to recap the game which occurred the last time the game the Mets hosted it.

Eddie Feigner is dead, but “The King and His Court” lives on the next CS360 Show Monday Night at 7:00p.m.

Nobody played Fast-pitch like  Eddie Feigner. The Washington Post described him as “the greatest softball pitcher who ever lived.

This 4 man team played more than 10,000 soft ball games around...

MINNEAPOLIS As Clyde Doepner walked past the Minnesota Twins' clubhouse Tuesday at Target Field, he was introduced to a group of children taking a tour of the park while the team was out of town.

Organist Nelson has become Twins institution

MINNEAPOLIS This is more than just a musical instrument. Perched high above the infield at Target Field, just a shade toward third base, Sue Nelson's organ is tucked among the red- and blue-clad bodies. Yes, it's the property of the Twins but in name only. The instrument still somehow belongs to Nelson. It's covered in Crayola-colored drawings she's been given...

Impact of Harmon Killebrew stretched beyond diamond

Perhaps the greatest compliment you can pay Hall of Fame slugger Harmon Killebrew is to simply state he was a baseball player. He wasn't necessarily flashy, though his majestic home runs were a thing of beauty. But the 6-foot, 195-pound Killebrew, who didn't fit the physical mode that we've come to expect from baseball players in today's game, was the type of player...

Major League Baseball Legend Harmon Killebrew Dies

Today is a moment that will always be part of sports history. There is nothing I can say that would be more worthy than the wise words of the Major League Hall of Famer, himself, Harmon Killebrew. “Life is precious and time is a key element.
