    You're going to have to go just a wee bit further in the wayback machine to fool me!

    I think his mom (a nurse) showed a lot of restraint by not running onto the field and yelling "My baby" after her son was beaned in his first MLB at bat...

    ------------

    In the news...

    Growing up in Guilford, Greenberg never envisioned getting beaned in his first major-league at-bat. Nobody does. But when he made his debut with the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night — just 36 hours removed from thinking he had been benched before a Class Double-A Southern League game in Kodak, Tenn. — Greenberg earned his place in baseball history.

    http://www.nhregister.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=14843241&BRD=1281&PAG=461&dept_id=7592&rfi=6

    Is there a Hank Greenberg -> Adam Greenberg connection?

    MESA, Ariz. -- Baseball fans take one look at Cubs outfield prospect Adam Greenberg's last name and always ask him the same question:

    "Was Hank Greenberg your grandfather?"

    Greenberg will reply "yes," and then he'll pause before adding, "But not the one you're looking for."

    As I zipped thru the 1994 All-Star Game that was on ESPN Classics the other night, I noticed an interesting at bat.

    Lee Smith pitching to Fred McGriff, who hits a home run over the head of Kenny Lofton.

    That All Star team had a bunch of former/future/current Cubs playing in it.

    Here's who I recognized with a Cubs connection. Did I miss anyone?

    Greg Maddux
    Lee Smith
    Fred McGriff
    Kenny Lofton
    Jason Bere
    Moises Alou
    Rod Beck
    Randy Myers

    Dusty Baker
    Don Baylor

    1994 All-Star Game roster

    Let me know if you find an All Star Game with more than 10 Cubs connections.

    WMAQ NBC channel 5 in Chicago also has a web feature where you can send in your Cubs photos.

    Yes, they have a White Sox page too.

    Wow, I have no memory of Doug Jones as a Cub at all, but you're right. He was there. (I checked the roster links.)

    Are you Tivoing today's game?

    Check out one of the camera angles at the beginning of the telecast where they show a closeup of third base. There is a Cub in the outfield stretching and the camera angle makes it look like a very tiny Cub player standing on the base.

    The announcer is snickering a bit after that camera shot. I think he noticed what the camera guys were up to.

    Tonight's game:

    "Chicago Cubs at Cincinnati Reds"
    Mon 7/18 6:00 PM Comcast Sports Chicago

    Does anyone remember that weird play from the Cubs vs Reds game on April 18th? I wonder if they'll re-air it this week during the Cubs / Reds series?

    ---------

    Did anyone watch WGN's Sunday night sports report last night?

    When the Tiger's batter was beaned, former Cub Kyle Farnsworth ran from the bullpen near the outfield and sought out the Royal's pitcher who beaned his teammate and tackled him with the form we recognized from when Paul Wilson of the Reds faced Farnsey at a Cubs game at Wrigley.

    My thanks to WGN for noticing this scene from a non-Chicago sports event and sharing it with interested Cubs fans.

    Haven't found any web pics from this moment yet.

    All the stations covered that. In fact, a couple others actually showed both tackles. I think ESPN did also.

    I didn't know that. I don't watch much ESPN other than when they have a Cubs related program on.

    Thanks for posting.

    Steve Stone will be co-hosting the afternoon show (2-6pm) on WSCR this Friday with Doug Buffone and Mike Mulligan. Stone has really taken to the radio, and is very entertaining and informative.
    WSCR now streams their content on the internet as well...

    Thanks for the Steve Stone radio info. It sounds interesting.

    I wonder why Steve Stone isn't listed in the I-55 game this weekend?

    Jose Cardenal is playing in this one. Check out the other former Cubs in this game.

    and on WGN...

    Sports Special Baseball highlights and interviews featuring Hall of Fame inductee Ryne Sandberg. Sat 7/30 6:00 PM

    Yes, the WGN program airs at the same time as the Comcast special. However, the Comcast special reairs at 11pm, so if you have just one vcr/Tivo, record the WGN at 6pm and the Comcast one at 11pm Central time. I'll have to watch the 11pm Comcast one via Tivo at another time so I can get enough rest for church on Sunday.

    I'd also check WGN 9pm news on Saturday and Instant Replay on Sunday at 9:40 PM. They might also share some highlights from the event during the Arizona Diamondbacks/Chicago Cubs game on WGN Sunday starting at 1:00 PM.

    Does anyone else wonder if Mark Buehrle and Willie Harris watched The Sports List "Chicago Sports Moments" on FoxSports Chicago and decided to use the White Sox tarp the other day as a slip and slide?

    I've been looking for a photo from this joyslide, but haven't found one on the web yet. Let me know if you find one.

    My Tivo caught this moment on Comcast last night, so I watched it over and over. I love stuff like this!

    Does anyone know who the Cub players were who did the same thing during the rainout at the first night game at Wrigley?
