Torii Hunter probably wants this one back.
On Monday, in the Tigers’ opening day game at Comerica Park, the seasoned veteran dropped a rare, routine fly ball.

Ryan Braun returned from his 65-game ban on Monday on Opening Day and was somewhat surprisingly given a standing ovation by the Brewers’ fan. While many thought that he’d be booed, he was actually well-received and it seems like Milwaukee is willing to put behind what happened in the past; that’ll only hold up if he produces, of course, which he likely will.
As you are well aware of by now, Michigan lost to Kentucky on a ridiculous three-pointer made by Aaron Harrison with less than three seconds left in the game.
Willie Cauley-Stein, the Wildcats’ backup center, but still likely a first round pick in the NBA, filmed the historic shot from the bench. This gives a pretty cool perspective from a player’s point of view of how the bench...
In the least shocking news of the day, Andrew Wiggins, announced he will be entering the NBA Draft at a press conference on Monday afternoon. Wiggins is projected as the No.1 pick next year’s draft. He was the Big 12 Freshman of the Year, averaging a team best 17.1 ppg. With Wiggins’ decision set, will his KU teammate Joel Embiid follow as a fellow one-and-done player?
It hasn’t been a great Opening Day for the Nationals so far. Stephen Strasburg served up a 3-run home run to Mets rookie Andrew Brown in the first inning and in the second inning, Bryce Harper almost left the game with a possible concussion after this play.
Whether this is intentional or not, we hope Harper is ok. This looks pretty nasty, but he was able to stay in the game...

San Diego won its first game of the season on Opening Night against the Dodgers, but the Padres’ players weren’t the only ones who showed out in the 3-1 victory. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Yonder Alonso hit a line drive foul towards the first base line; however, instead of the ball hitting a fan, the ball girl caught it.
The play was certainly an unorthodox Web Gem....
A Gainesville TV station (WCJB TV20) was unable to show highlights from Florida’s Elite Eight win over Dayton because of NCAA restrictions, so the crew got creative and created their own highlights. I’d say this was much more entertaining than the actual games highlights.

By Beating Michigan State in the Elite Eight on Sunday, Connecticut ruined President Obama’s bracket. Although he still has one team, Florida, alive in his bracket, Obama is pretty much toast with the Spartans winning it all.

Fear the Beard? Not so much. Brian Wilson showcased his dreadlocks/beard look during Sunday night’s MLB Opening Night game between the Dodgers and Padres. Not only did the Dodgers’ 10M-a-year relief pitcher get off to a rocky start on the field (he recorded the loss after giving up three-runs without recording an out), but on top of that, his beard was not looking the sharpest...

Iowa Wild goalie Johan Gustafsson had a freak incident happen when a puck got stuck in one of the eye holes in his mask. This is exactly why cat eyes are banned at some of the lower levels of hockey, though something like this is very rare.

This hit by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik will certainly get looked at by the Department of Safety. Orpik absolutely crushed Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, who left the game with an upper body injury. Toews looks like he hit his head multiple times on the play.

Gustav Nyquist is on an absolute tear lately, as he’s the hottest player in the NHL since January 1st and has scored 22 goals in his last 27 games. The Goose, who perplexingly started the year in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins, is one of the sole reasons why the Red Wings, who are currently leading the Eastern Conference Wild Card race with 84 points, even still have a...
Kentucky freshman Aaron Harrison lifted the Wildcats into the Final Four after his heroic shot in the final seconds of Sunday’s game with Michigan. Harrison, who scored all 12 of his points in the second half, hit the dagger three-pointer with 2.6 seconds left on the clock. Kentucky will face Wisconsin for a trip to the Championship game.

John Harbaugh was in New York City for Sunday’s Elite Eight matchup between the UConn Huskies and Michigan State Spartans. The Ravens coach was seen by the CBS cameras during the game wearing a MSU hat (which, we aren’t certain why). Harbaugh’s brother-in-law, Tom Crean, had this gem tweet after seeing who Harbaugh was rooting for: I see my Bro. In Law John Harbaugh in a...
Michigan State’s Keith Appling probably couldn’t have played worse if he had tried. In the waning moments, he became a defensive liability when he fouled Shabazz Napier on a three pointer. Napier would hit all 3 shots, giving UConn a five-point lead and essentially clinched the game. The post Keith Appling Fouls Shabazz Napier in Critical Moment, UConn Advances to Final Four...
