Yankees and Dutchies in MLB, Thursday April 23

The year started with not much faith in this Yankee team from my side. Still I don't think that they will be a contender but after the series vs the Tigers, there is some belief coming. First the close loss with a very good outing by C.C. Sabathia. Then the 5-2 win on Tuesday and …

It seems that Brian Cashman has lost it

With the injury of Brendan Ryan, there was a glimpse of hope for Rob Refsnyder that he could make the Opening Day roster. Was.

History of Dutch baseball: 1940-1960

After the Germans invaded Western Europe, the Netherlands surrendered after five days of fighting. During the German occupation baseball in the Netherlands went through a hard time, just like the Dutch people. Many supplies were claimed by the Germans for their army and war industry. So wood and leather were materials that were hard to …
