The two retiring captains at Yankee Stadium. Paulie gets his second going away present of the year- a base signed by all the Yankees.
For those of you who haven’t been to Chicago, it’s a must. This city is just so beautiful, I can’t get enough of it.
Now, ask me to repeat those words come November.. Lol
Sox game was a blast. We bought nosebleed seats but had friends that were much closer so we relocated. Nobody was checking tickets! Sox lost, but it was still a good time. 😊❤️⚾️

Gordon Beckham has been traded to the Angels. Wow. They are going to love this guys glove. One of the best second basemen in the game. I’ll miss you Gordon!
Atta boy Robin. You tell that ump. I love how you could read his lips and the first thing out of his mouth was “That’s a bunch of bullshit!”
Fireworks from the dugout soothes the loss. (at Chicago White Sox Us Cellular Field)

He’s certainly not the first non-pitcher to pitch in a big league contest, and most likely will not be the last. But seeing Adam Dunn take the pitcher’s mound on Tuesday night was nothing short of fantastic. I remember watching Doug Dascenzo on WGN pitch for the Cubs when the game was out-of-reach (four different times, actually!), and recall Reds shortstop Davey Concepcion tossing a few pitches in a 1988 game. And who can forget Jose Canseco’s “masterful” performance 60 feet and 6 inches away from where he made a name for himself?
Dunn’s official pitching record is 1 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 ER. Not a terrible outing for a designated hitter.
Congratulations, Adam Dunn, and thanks for the entertainment.
Special card, unnumbered, Adam Dunn, “THE PITCHER.”
