The impact of the MLB “juiced ball” on pitcher earned run average and predictive factors

In the early to mid-20th century, baseball was unquestionably America’s pastime. Today, we still revere stars like Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson, who were cultural icons as well as excellent baseball players. However, baseball itself has been upstaged by professional football and basketball as the sport of choice for many Americans today. This is due...

Advocacy, Sports, and Faith

Cassius Clay, Lew Alcindor, and Chris Jackson may not be familiar names to most Americans or even to sports fans. However, it is undeniable that most if not all sports fans would recognize the names Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and more devoted fans of basketball would recognize the name Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. All three were...

Bayern inch closer to an eighth straight Bundesliga title with a 1-0 win in Der Klassiker

Since the Bundesliga’s restart, Bayern and Dortmund have looked like the league’s two strongest teams, coinciding with their position in the table. The Black and Yellow thrashed FC Schalke 04 4-0 and won comfortably against Wolfsburg. Similarly, Bayern beat a scrappy Union Berlin side 2-0 and overcame a 10-minute rough patch against Eintracht Frankfurt to...

The Return Of The Bundesliga: Matchday 26 recap

After two months of waiting, the Bundesliga returned to action this past Saturday. With all nine games being played behind closed doors, home-field advantage seemed to fade away from the matches. Dortmund was the only home side to win this past weekend, with three teams picking up a point. There was a noticeable difference in...

and Sports moments that make us cry

We miss sports. It is difficult to be at home and expected to remain in school, that is a given. But to do it without sports? The world is cruel. Lucy and Roman have a special relationship to things that some people consider just a game. There is just something about sports that can move...

Since the beginning of the Robert Griffin III era, I’d contended that a big time receiver would make the difference between the Redskins being a good team and a great team. Well, those aren’t really the options anymore. The Redskins are, frankly, awful. The team finished their last campaign with a 3-13 record, good enough…

Just one year after winning the National League East Division in 2012, the Washington Nationals fell out of contention for a first place finish by a large margin last year. The entrance of Bryce Harper and his Rookie of the Year season in 2012 brought with it a glimmer of hope for Nats fans that…

On Christmas Day in 1997, Orlando Hernandez, a thirty-two year old Cuban baseball star, boarded a small boat and set sail for the United States. Hernandez, often known simply by his nickname “El Duque,” was a man seeking greener pastures; a year earlier, he had been banned from Cuban baseball amidst allegations that he had…

I don’t know about you, but for me, the name ‘Wilt Chamberlain’ has a mythical, god-like aura attached to it. With superhuman size, superhuman strength, and superhuman personality, Wilt’s lived a life that we will probably never be able to understand. He was Goliath, the freak of nature who absolutely dominated anyone who dared to…

In May of 2013, something revolutionary happened. Jason Collins, a fairly well known NBA center at the time, publicly “came out” and became the first openly homosexual professional athlete. Collins was strongly praised for his bravery and became an instant icon. While he was met with some criticism, the widespread acceptance and admiration that was…

Despite fan enthusiasm for the Okahoma City Thunder, the Indiana Pacers, and any residual belief in the Miami Heat, the best team in the NBA is, once again, the San Antonio Spurs. For whatever reason, basketball’s intelligentsia decided to underrate San Antonio following their heartbreaking loss in the 2013 NBA Finals. The rationale was that…

For the first time in almost two decades, when Augusta National opens its gates to the top golfers in the world, the best golfer in the world will be absent. Imagining the Masters without Tiger Woods is like imagining a round of golf without a nice cold Arnold Palmer, or with clubs that are wooden….

The USA met Mexico in Glendale, Arizona on Wednesday night, for a World Cup tune-up which, despite its billing, was anything but friendly. After a few scattered opening minutes, the Americans established control with goals from Michael Bradley and Chris Wondolowski.  However, they could not maintain their hold on the game through the second half,…

Did the Yankees just lose? We don’t have the highest payroll? As the era of the Core-Four comes to a close, the Yankees appear to be sinking into mediocrity. This is a shocking sight for those of us born in the ‘90s who enjoyed five World Series championships and a run of constant relevancy. Had…
