Retired former World Series MVP Lance Berkman will be wandering the ivy covered walls of Rice University this fall. At least proverbially. After walking away from playing baseball after the 2013 season, the Houston Chronicle reports he has enrolled in the elite University and will also volunteer as a student coach for his former head coach, Wayne Graham:
Berkman received the...
Lance Berkman is donating a fire truck to the town of West, TX. The town was the site of a explosion which took the lives of 15 people on April 17.
The town also lost several fire trucks used by its Volunteer Fire Department.
Berkman got some help from the Arlington Fire Department in locating and refurbishing a fire truck reports NBC DWF. The completed truck will presented to the...
ST. LOUIS -- Lance Berkman was born, raised and resides in Texas so he looks right at home in a Texas Rangers uniform. But there is no doubt part of his heart remains with the Cardinals.
This was obvious from watching Berkman hold court with his ex-teammates behind the batting cage Friday before the Rangers and Cardinals started their three-game series at Busch Stadium. He was...
Lance Berkman doesn't like to bite his tongue and many enjoy that aspect of the opinionated Texas Rangers designated hitter. However, many can easily become annoyed by Berkman's words.
After reading Berkman's comments from Monday, it's unlikely that he's going to win over any Chicago Cubs fans.
The Rangers begin a three-game series against the Cubs at Wrigley...
The Rangers begin a series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday and DH Lance Berkman didn't mince words when providing his thoughts on the stadium.
After watching Josh Hamilton sign with their division rival, the Rangers made a move this weekend to replace his bat in their line-up, signing Lance Berkman to take over as their DH for 2013. Much is being made of the fact that Berkman got $11 million after spending basically the entire 2012 season on the disabled list, but Major League teams have begun to make the correct shift...
There have been a lot of mixed feelings out in the blogging world on what the Texas Rangers have done by signing Lance Berkman. There is a palpable risk for the Rangers since Berkman only played 32 games in 2012 due to continued problems with his knees. But what if Berkman could play a hundred games in 2013? If that could happen or more, then Lance Berkman will be worth every penny...
While it remains unclear if free agent Lance Berkman is
going to play in 2013, he would be “quite a nice fit” for the Boston Red Sox,
according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Berkman still doesn’t know whether he wants to play, or
whether he wants to play for the rebuilding Astros, for whom he played most of
his career. The 36-year-old switch-hitter can...
So I'm trolling around some St. Louis Cards news on the Internet when I come across an article on SB Nation about Lance Berkman possibly heading back to the Houston Astros.
Houston? Those dirty dogs? I mean, I thought Berks got a taste of the filet and wouldn't want round steak anymore. But to each their own.
The article went on to explain that the talks...
When St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman
underwent surgery on his knee in early September, it appeared that his season,
and perhaps career, were over. However, Berkman was able to return for the
Cardinals last night as a pinch-hitter.
Manager Mike Matheny made the move as a gesture to Berkman,
who is likely in his last season with the Cardinals. The veteran slugger...
