1995: Greg Maddux’s Greatest Season

Twenty years ago, Greg Maddux won the 1995 National League Cy Young. It was his fourth consecutive win of the highest pitching award. Beyond the award, 1995 could easily be counted as Maddux’s greatest season. What’s even more amazing is that he did it all with a less than impressive fastball. Maddux dominated the National League, going […]

Baseball into November, Cubs Still Working

It’s been an insane school year so far, with budget cuts and the science department shrinking from five teachers to just three to cover our four grade levels.  That meant that I had to take care of four different science electives, which, much to the chagrin of my entire family, means that I don’t have time to do much.  So, I’m going to take Monday off as a mental health...

Was Mike Fiers cheating during his no-hitter?

When you think pitching and greatness it’s unlikely you think of Mike Fiers. Well Friday, Mike Fiers threw a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers, so in your face. Of coruse, I’m kidding.f No-hitters are fluky events by nature, and though the game’s greats have thrown them, so have many of the game’s not-so-greats. For example, the list of pitchers who have thrown no...

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- Last July when he was one of the greats going through the circus that revolves around being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, it was hard for Tom Glavine to believe.

Greg Maddux asked for umpire’s advice on pitch and it worked

We all know respected Major League pitchers who have been around the game for years are more apt to get the benefit of the doubt with borderline calls. But what about umpires telling pitchers what pitch to throw? Maybe that’s just a Greg Maddux thing. In his book “Leo Mazzone’s Tales From the Braves Mound,”...Read More

After amassing over 3,300 career strikeouts, 355 wins and four Cy Young Awards, it’s fair to say that Greg Maddux was on fire many times throughout his baseball career. That said, we learned Sunday during his Hall of Fame induction speech that the ace started catching fire long before his baseball career. When thanking his brother, Mike, Maddux made a joke about how his older brother...
