The Most Incredible Baseball Catches of the Week

As a relatively recent convert into the world of baseball fandom, I can still see why I thought baseball was so boring up until a few years ago. It’s slow. If no one’s on base, there are only two players worth paying attention to at any given moment. If two teams are tied after nine innings, nothing special happens — they just keep playing more baseball.

But regardless of whether or not you enjoy the sport, it’s hard not to appreciate the incredible highlights from a week of baseball. Today, we’re introducing a new feature where we round up the best catches of the last week — full of slides, jumps, dives and more.

Watch This Dad Do the Impossible by Catching a Foul Ball While Feeding His Baby

Fan interference at a baseball game is not uncommon, but it rarely occurs in such spectacular fashion.

On Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel popped a foul ball into right field. Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez saw he had a play on the ball, but just as he reached out to record the out, a dad feeding his baby snagged the ball with his free hand. More →

Samsung PR stunt Backfires in the Most Hilarious Possible Way

You’ve got to hand it to Samsung for its me-too, whatever-it-takes attitude it has when it comes to battling Apple’s iPhone. The strategy has worked for quite some time, and Samsung still does it, no matter how blatant some of the rip-offs may be – but hey, nobody owns cool, and everybody copies everybody.

But the latest Apple stunt Samsung tried to rip off backfired in the most hilarious possible way. More →

MLB Baseball Food

The best foods to eat at every Major League Baseball stadium

The best foods to eat at every Major League Baseball stadium

It’s early April, a time of year which, for many people, is synonymous with only one thing: Major League Baseball.

In a number of ways, the baseball viewing experience has changed dramatically over the past few years. With HDTVs providing such an enjoyable viewing experience at home, teams across all sports leagues have done quite a bit to up the ante in terms of the live viewing experience. No where is that more apparent than in the food options available.

For anyone who grew up in the 80s and early 90s, going to the ballpark was a rather simple affair, food wise. You had your popcorn, some peanuts or crackerjacks, and of course, the tried and true hot dog. But today’s fan demands a more sophisticated menu, which is why many ballparks now offer a range of food items — such as steak and sushi — that may seem sacrilege to old school baseball fans.

Korea’s worst baseball team builds robot fans to cheer demoralized players

When a baseball team hits a slump, it can feel insurmountable at times. It doesn’t help when the fan base isn’t there to support the team either, which was the case for the Hanwha Eagles, a South Korean team which has lost more than 400 times in the last five season, consistently coming in last in their league, reports ABC News. Now that the fans have all but given up on their hometown Eagles, the team is making it easier than ever to show support without actually having to sit through another tragic loss with an ingenious solution: robot fans.
