Question Baseball game to start with Xbox for 2 innings, then game for final 7 innings...

Baseball game to start with Xbox for 2 innings, then game for final 7 innings...


Could this be for real?

Comments?

Posted on Tue, Jun. 21, 2005

Old ballgame has newfangled twist

Here’s one for the record books.

The first two innings of the July 16th game between the Kansas City T-Bones and the Schaumburg Flyers will be played virtually.

Equipped with Microsoft Xbox game controllers instead of baseball gloves and bats, two video gamers will climb into recliner chairs around home plate at CommunityAmerica Ballpark and slug it out on the park’s 16- by 24-foot video screen.

Their scores from playing two innings of MVP Baseball 2005 on an Xbox will stand when the T-Bones and Flyers take the field to finish the last seven innings of the game.

This could be the dumbest thing I've heard all year.

Makes me sad. I enjoy baseball. I liked to play it as a kid (for real, not just with my thumbs) and I like to watch it now. The fact that that the video game version is being elevated to this status and made this important bothers me. How about they put kids out there on the field, let them actually play for 2 innings, and then take that score? But then there's probably advertising and sponsorship dollars involved here, and that tends to taint everything it touches.

"This Old Cub" Comes To WGN

Good news for anyone who hasn't had the chance to see "This Old Cub", the outstanding movie tracing the hardships and triumphs of Cub legend Ron Santo. The documentary will air on WGN-TV both locally and on the Superstation on Saturday, July 16 at 7pm Central.

Big Grin Cubs cartoons, photoshop fun

I imagine that an upcoming photoshopped Cubs image has got to include Charlie Brown and the words "Good Grief".

The Cubs are 0 for July as I type this post. Hopefully that will change...

Looks like Corey Patterson is going to be buying some meals for his new teamates, since he and Jason Dubois are being sent down to Triple-A Iowa .

When he returns to the big leagues, he'll be the one to catch the celebrity first pitch of the game.

------

My advice for the Cubs...if he's healed, bat Derrek Lee in the leadoff spot. He has the highest batting average and gets on base a lot between base hits, walks and home runs.

I wonder if we'll be seeing Nomar back soon???

Tonight's game vs. the Marlins is on Comcast Sports Chicago PLUS at 6:30pm. (groan!)
That's on digital cable on a community access channel here. The picture quality is usually lousy on that channel - but it does offer a better picture than radio.
Is it my imagination or do hurricanes form when the Cubs are scheduled to play in Florida?

Saturday's game is on Comcast at 5pm and Sunday's is on WGN (woo hoo!) at noon.

After that, the All Star Break begins.

I hear that many baseball players get married during the All Star Break. I wonder if any Cubbies will return newly married next week.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Go Cubs!

Lightbulb Hee-Seop Choi @ Home Run Derby

Former Cub Hee-Seop Choi has been chosen to participate in the Home Run Derby on Monday.

Click here for related story:

New-look Home Run Derby field is set

Can you imagine telling him a couple years ago that he'd be hitting in the derby and teammate Sammy Sosa would not in 2005? He wouldn't believe it.

The 8 batters are:

Hee-Seop Choi of the Los Angeles Dodgers who represents Korea
Philadelphia's Bobby Abreu (Venezuela)
Pittsburgh's Jason Bay (Canada)
Atlanta's Andruw Jones (the Netherlands)
Milwaukee's Carlos Lee (Panama)
Boston's David Ortiz (Dominican Republic)
Detroit's Ivan Rodriguez (Puerto Rico)
Texas' Mark Teixeira (United States).

Did you see Saturday night's game vs. the Marlins?

Cubs rookie Adam Greenberg was hit by a pitch in the back of his head - by the very first pitch he saw in his first major league at bat.

OUCH!

Question Cubs trivia - All Star Game events 2005

Name the former Cubs who appeared in the 2005 All-Star Legends & Celebrities Softball Game.

Which former Cub hit a softball home run in the legends game that landed just short of being a MLB distance home run?

(The outfield is reduced for the softball games.)

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

Who was the former Cub who was the pitcher for Detroit Tigers catcher Pudge Rodriguez in the 2005 Home Run derby?

For bonus points, how many MLB home runs did this former Cub hit in his career?

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

Hmmm.
I think I heard (didn't watch it) that Andre Dawson played. Don't know the second one.
Mick Kelleher was the pitcher. If he had more than one homer in the majors, I'd be surprised. Maybe 0 or 1.

I thought Joe Borowski was throwing to Abreu, but I guess he was off signing with the Devil Rays.

It was Andre who hit the home run. That was what? A 12 inch softball that almost made it into the bleachers. How long has he been retired???

Yep, Mick Kelleher pitched to Pudge. Despite playing part of his career at Wrigley, he never hit a MLB home run.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/k/kellemi02.shtml

Here is a photo I took of Mick many years ago...

Exclamation Is there a Hank Greenberg -> Adam Greenberg connection?

Quote:
Did you see Saturday night's game vs. the Marlins?

Cubs rookie Adam Greenberg was hit by a pitch in the back of his head - by the very first pitch he saw in his first major league at bat.
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...._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."

Lightbulb 1994 All-Star Game

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

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.
