There are sexy first pitch chicks that can move the needle within the blogosphere (think Marisa Miller 2008) because it's more common to have some vice president of sales at Dick's Last Resort lobbing a ball over a Victoria's Secret lingerie model. So that means last night in Toronto was a special occasion because Dutch model Doutzen Kroes, 4.5 months after giving birth, took the mound for duties. As you'll see, she was showing some stomach and perfect form. Photos! JUMP!
You want to see what happens when a Major League Baseball game goes 6 hours and 11 minutes? Last night's Reds-Phillies game didn't end until 1:19 this morning with the Fightins winning 5-4 in 19 innings. It was the 6th longest game in Phils history and longest (in terms of hours) in Reds' history. Even more impressive was 2B Wilson Valdez joining Babe Ruth as the only player in MLB history to start a game in the field and become the winning pitcher. But what really shocked us were the amount of Phillies fans that legged out the marathon. Do you people have jobs? Photos! JUMP!
You are looking at a video that currently has 5 views on YouTube and will be your sports blogosphere viral video of the day after dad went Snuka for a foul ball during last night's White Sox-Indians game.

Police are getting closer to busting open the case of punks in Washington state who broke into Phillies' pitcher Kyle Kendrick's house and took a giant haul of 2008 World Series memorabilia. Tuesday night police pounced on one man who has a history of with law enforcement. He just happened to know where the ring was hiding. Full story of this crazy heist- JUMP!
Our friends at Crossing Broad ran an innocent video yesterday of Chase Utley on a Clearwater, Florida rehab assignment where the MLB All Star was interacting with the locals. Pretty innocent stuff and we almost passed over the video, but then it struck us that this is a great example of Jersey Chasers In The Wild. If you've followed BC over the years you know that WAGs and Jersey Chasers provide us with plenty of fodder. But, we rarely see them in action. Rarely see how a Jersey Chaser operates. Never see her deploy the arm/hand/mind drones on a millionaire baller - until now. Video of these ladies in action...JUMP!
By now if you haven't seen the Astros fan evading security during his insane escape from Minute Maid Field, you've been in a coma. Kevin Wayne Crabtree was the guy behind the streak and has pretty much raised the bar to the next level for future fans running on playing fields. But what was behind such a stunt? Why attempt something that would end with an arrest? There's a very good reason from Crabtree and he told the Houston police department it was a bet with friends. Wait until you see the reason for the streak and Crabtree's history with baseball. JUMP!
"That sums it up, doesn't it," says the Fox Sports broadcaster as Mets fan wearing his crying baby mask heads for the exit after last night's extra innings 2-1 victory by the Marlins. Before you jump us for making fun of some dude with genetic issues, we're 99% that is one of these crying baby masks. If not, sorry brother.
As of this writing the Nats and Pirates are headed to the 9th with Washington leading 4-2 on what is a historic night in MLB 21st Century history. You are looking at $1 ticket, $1 hot dog and $1 peanuts night at a ballpark that is less than 5 years old and in a city where baseball was supposed to blossom into a force. Instead, you were pretty much begged to attend this game and as you can see from the following photos being posted on Twitter, the place was still practically empty.
At this point 251,000 viewers have seen the video of the Astros streaker attempting Friday night the greatest escape from a ballpark in Major League Baseball history. But we still don't have a name, Facebook account or Twitter @ handle. Adam Rubin, an ESPN reporter covering the Mets beat, reported Friday that The Fugitive was eventually caught by police, according to Astros officials. This is where you can help us, BC Nation. One of you has info. Make your boy even more famous by sending us a name and preferably a photo or two. Video after the JUMP! firstname.lastname@example.org
