Greg Maddux was already collecting a paycheck when he was in Little League? And from the Cardinals?

Best non-baseball athlete shown? Michelle Wie! There was a girl who played a few years on a team my son played on and one of the opposing coaches detested it - he was just horrible (in fact, I think he forfeited one game, he found it so objectionable). When they finally did play them, she absolutely knocked the daylights out of the ball.

No wonder he is always referencing Hank Aaron...he looks just like him in the face!

She was a Little League MARLIN. So, that makes me feel pretty freaking old.

Sammy Sosa looked like he was 15 in Little League. Why does that not surprise me?

Mark Reynolds and Ryan Zimmerman were also in that league at the same time. Not bad.

I think Reynolds, Zimmerman, Wright, Cuddyer, and both of the Upton brothers played in that league at around the same time

I found this article from a quick google search: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/24/AR2008102403369_2.html?sid=ST2008102403867


Upton, Wright and Cuddyer played for the Virginia Blasters, a local AAU team. They played against Zimmerman, a Virginia Beach native who played for the rival Tidewater Drillers. In high school, they played together for the Tidewater Mets, a traveling club team

I don't know what was in the water in the Va. Beach area in the mid-'80s/early '90s, but it sure wasn't there when I was a kid.

The Zach Grienke pic got me. Because any of us with kids has that exact same photo somewhere in the house. Is our boy the next 100M arm?

I'd bet my house, cars and life-savings (total worth = about $25!)... it was the manager's son. The kid also made the All-Star team and started over Wright and Upton on that team. His mom was head of the concession stand and they never proved that should stole $327.62 from the stand (despite having 6 new pairs of the once popular Gloria Vanderbilt jeans the following autumn).

Rumor has it... the "kid" still lives at home and is on his 15th job since serving time for another DUI. Mom and Dad got divorced; therefore, he spends Wednesdays and every other weekend with Dad. Now starts and bats leadoff on the softball team that his Dad sponsers,

You forgot to mention that he is a regular poster on RZ, where he regularly questions the manager because he's 'played the game a long time'

I played at the middle school level and have won the World Series in MLB The Show, All-Star Baseball, High Heat, and Out of the Park. I've been there and done that.
