Livan Hernandez is retiring, officially. Two things: Hernandez didn’t pitch in 2013. And Matt Klaassen is already writing something up about his career. Which means this is two posts about Livan Hernandez in the middle of spring training preceding a season following a season in which Hernandez was inactive. You can’t say FanGraphs doesn’t give […]
According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, long-time big league right-hander Livan Hernandez will officially file his retirement papers on Thursday. He last pitched in 2012.

The ball boy couldn't field a groundball cleanly, and the Braves bullpen let him have it. The pitchers could be seen laughing, taunting him and even throwing...
Your browser does not support iframes. A couple days late on this video, but it’s far too amusing to pass up briefly mentioning it. One of the more important responsibilities of a ball boy at work in a major league ballpark is to ensure the safety of members of both teams’ bullpens if those bullpens [...]
The Braves were taking on Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field this past Sunday when a Rays ballboy had the misfortune of booting a foul ball grounder right in front of the Atlanta bullpen. Immediately the players started giving the poor kid the business, with Livan Hernandez being the most vociferous of the hecklers. Not only does he harass the ballboy to no end, he also showers him...
Now that was quick.
