Wilson Ramos throws out the first pitch before Game 1 of the NLDS

Earlier this week, the Nationals announced former pitcher Livan Hernandez would throw out the first pitch for Game 1 of the NLDS at Nationals Friday. It was a sensible choice. Hernandez is a noteworthy figure in the club’s short history. The Cuban right-hander was a fan favorite during parts of five seasons in Washington. But that […]

‘Brothers in Exile’ brought back memories of the 1997 NLCS

On Tuesday night, ESPN aired a fantastic 30 for 30 documentary entitled ‘Brothers in Exile’, detailing the journey to America from Cuba by brothers Livan and Orlando Hernandez. The feature was excellent, but there was one part of it that made my stomach turn – Game 5 of the 1997 NLCS, when Livan Hernandez struck out 15 Braves en route to a complete game victory. The strike...

Livan Hernandez: Beginnings, Ends, and Middles

It would be hard to call Livan Hernandez’s retirement surprising, but some people such as myself were probably a bit taken aback because we assumed he had already retired. That is not meant as a slight. Hernandez is in his late thirties (some would say he is even older), did not pitch at all in […]
