Kid writes letter asking for autograph, Pirates reply shamefully (pic)

An eight-year-old Pittsburgh Pirates fan named Colin sent an adorable, handwritten letter to the team asking if Neil Walker, his favorite player, would be so kind as to sign a baseball card.

Cards fan irate over sexual commercial during games

A middle-aged St. Louis Cardinals fan wrote a letter to the editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to bemoan the fact that a decent, God-fearing and church-going fan can’t tune into a broadcast of a baseball game without being bombarded by “pornographic” commercials featuring scantily clad women chowing down on meaty hamburgers.

A couple of Baltimore Orioles fans, presumably with the surname “Yards,” apparently in a flash of baseball-and-ballpark-loving inspiration as they awaited the birth of their son, decided it would be a hoot (do Orioles hoot?

It was a snub for the ages when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, fresh off a 36-16 whupping at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night, appeared to throw shade at Richard Sherman after encountering the cornerback during the teams’ postgame of-field meet-and-greet.
