Took my kids to a game a couple years ago and Ronnie was there - he was wearing a sequined glove on one hand like Michael Jackson...........


One of my favorite baseball jokes of all time was about 20 years ago when the Giants had a lousy infield

Q: "What do Michael Jackson and the SF Giants infield have in common.?"

A: "They both wear a glove on one hand for no apparent reason."

Here was another Detroit Tiger goofball. Herbie Redmond was a groundskeeper for years. When they groomed the field in the fifth inning, they would play John Denver's "Thank God I'm A Country Boy". Herbie would get to second base, drop his grooming broom and start dancing. Ah, fond memories....

I can get a ticket to the Flubs Opening Day today for $25. Parking across the street from Wrigley Field costs $50. Too funny...

Great to see Andy Pettitte back where he belongs. I think he's trying to goose his potential Hall of Fame numbers but I still like the guy. He effed up when he followed Clemens to Houston.

If it wasn't going to be so cold here, I would go to Opening Day. Today's high is 47. That means Wrigley will be 37. If that.


I swear to God, nothing is colder than Wrigley Field in April.

Flubs game isn't on TV today. Some sort of pissing match between the TV networks, direct TV and WGN. Effers....

Herbie used to meet us in the parking lot behind the Stadium Bar as we tailgated before opening day games each year. We'd give him free beer and he'd give us a report on the condition of the field. Yes, memories...

This is from Wikipedia:

quote:
Herbie Redmond (1929 - April 4, 1990), known variously as "Herbie the Hoofer," "Short Dog," and "Herbie the Love Bug," was the Detroit Tigers' dancing groundskeeper who was one of the most colorful and popular characters in Detroit baseball in the 1970s and 1980s. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Redmond served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and worked as a forklift operator for Ford Motor Company before joining the Tiger Stadium grounds crew in 1969.

Redmond entertained the crowd with a trademark jig he danced while sweeping the infield during the fifth inning of nearly every Detroit Tigers' home game from 1969-1989. While he and the grounds crew dragged brooms across the infield to smooth the dirt, Redmond would break into a soft shoe routine, shaking his hips, and then wave his cap to the cheering crowd as he exited. The routine was variously known as the "broom dance," "The Herbie Redmond Show," or the "Herbie Shuffle." In a 1986 interview with the Detroit Free Press, Redmond described the "Herbie Shuffle" this way: "First you strut to third ... they you wave your cap ... next you shake those hips ... and jump for joy ... then kiss that cap ... and salute the team." Richard Bak & Charlie Vincent, "The Corner," p. 100. Redmond had a number of variations on his shuffle, including a country version to John Denver's "Thank God I'm A Country Boy," a limbo version, and a polka version that was also a big hit with the crowd.

According to Redmond, the tradition began when he spontaneously began dancing after a Jim Northrup home run. The next day, Redmond was called to the front office and thought he was going to be fired. Instead, they said: "Herbie, just keep doing what you want to do." Richard Bak & Charlie Vincent, "The Corner," p. 100.

During the Tigers' win-starved years of the 1970s, Redmond got the crowd cheering when there was not much else to cheer for, and the "Herbie Redmond Show" became one of the most popular and anticipated features of a visit to Tiger Stadium. In October 2006, Sports Illustrated chose Redmond for its list of the "10 Greatest Characters in Tigers History," along with Mark Fidrych, Norm Cash, Boots Poffenberger, and Dave Rozema. [1]

In 1984, the Tigers (under the new ownership of Tom Monaghan) banned Redmond from continuing his dance, calling it "distracting." Detroit fans booed and reacted so negatively that the team relented and allowed Herbie to resume his fifth inning performances. Head groundskeeper Frank Feneck said some members of the crew didn't like the routine, "but I never heard a fan say anything bad about him." Mike Dodd, "Stadium staffers who gave parks personality," USA Today, May 27, 1993.

In a 1985 interview, Redmond said: "I just get a little rhythm going, get the feet moving and have a little fun. I try to lighten up the people ... If I get loose, maybe they'll get loose, too." Obituary of Herbert Redmond, USA Today, April 5, 1990. Redmond was also quoted as saying: "I loved baseball and here I was getting paid to watch it. Seemed like God couldn't have made a better job." Obituary of Herbert Redmond, United Press International, April 4, 1990.

Hall of fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell called Redmond "an original." Harwell added: "The irony is that the (New York) Yankees tried to hire a man to imitate him, and he failed. You couldn't imitate Herbie. ... It was all spontaneous." Obituary of Herbert Redmond, USA Today, April 5, 1990.

Bob Buchta, a founder of the Tiger Stadium Fan Club, said Redmond was "a symbol to baseball lovers in Detroit. For a lot of us, Herbie captured the democratic spirit of the ballgame. He brought people together in laughter and made the experience more special and more fun. Some of his bosses apparently wished he'd do his job unnoticed, but Herbie was determined to assert his individuality and a lot of us appreciated him for that." Obituary of Herbert Redmond, United Press International, April 4, 1990.

Redmond's sister, Ernestine Ben, described her brother as "a crowd pleaser." She said: "When the Tigers were in a slump, Herbie would always tip his cap and do his bump. The fans adored him." Obituary of Herbert Redmond, United Press International, April 4, 1990.

Redmond died of liver disease at Detroit Receiving Hospital on Opening Day in 1990. For several months, the ground crew dragged the field in the fifth inning in a "missing broom" formation in Redmond's honor.

Tigers beat Red Sox 3-2!

Velander pitches 8 shutout innings and only gives up 2 hits.

Valverde comes in to pitch the 9th with a 2 run lead. Gives up 3 hits and 2 runs. Blows the save.

Tigers score in bottom of 9th to win.

Verlander (ERA 0.0) gets no-decision. Valverde (ERA 18.0) gets the win.

Baseball. Sheesh!

And Cabrera is on pace for 486 walks and 162 errors; sounds about right.

and walking 3 times in front of Fielder? What was that about? Is Prince still winded from his triple?

Chuck - I know you didn't like the outcome but that game was on the MLB Network and was awesome. I watched the whole thing. You had to feel for Rivera but it sure was exciting!

I think I watched about 14 hours of baseball yesterday.

Spoken like a true yankees fan.

Don't worry they will wave a tonne of cash in someone's face and ruin another teams chances at the post season.
