3000!!!

w00t! Dancing Applaud

Good thing it was a triple. If it had been a home run, fans being what they are now, they probably would have wanted $25,000 for the ball:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67QvYEB8MI

Ichiro went 2-for-4 last night with a triple raising his average to .304. Not bad for a guy that turns 43 next month.

He is now at 3,027 career hits, passing Lou Brock, now 25th all time. Applaud

Dodger game on broadcast TV (5.1) tonight (vs. the Rockies) with Vin Scully doing the play-by-play.

When was the last time that happened?? Confused

They're doing all 3 games this weekend, Vin Scully's last 3 home games, and the 3 games from San Francisco next weekend, his last 3 games ever.

Good to know. Victory! Peace!

Remember when broadcasting these games were the norm and not the exception? Sad

Overlooked with all the hype (much deserved) about Vin Scully's retirement is that Dick Enberg also retired from broadcasting this past weekend. In recent years he had done the TV broadcasts for the San Diego Padres, but in his long and illustrious career, he was a jack-of-all-trades when it came to doing play-by-play, both on radio and TV. At one time, he was the most omnipresent sports broadcaster on TV. Back in the 60's when my family moved to the L.A. area, there was Vin Scully with the Dodgers, Chick Hearn with the Lakers, and Dick Enberg doing UCLA basketball, Rams football, and Angels baseball. Talk about being spoiled!

And a lot of those games were televised on broadcast TV... Now we can't get anything without cable/satellite/FiOS... Sad

For the first time since 1946, Cubs fans can say their team has been to the World Series more recently than Dodger fans can.

I have no dog in this fight. Obviously the Cubs are sentimental favorites but Terry Francona is pretty good manager, he's been thru this before with Boston so I wouldn't write them off completely.

If their football team could get its act together, we might be calling Cleveland "City of Champions". Crazy

On October 14, 1908 the Chicago Cubs beat the Detroit Tigers becoming the first team to repeat as World Series Champions.

39,466 days later they win their third World Series.

Patience is a virtue.

On the local news they were showing some Cubs fans watching the game at a sports bar over in Burbank. One guy brought his glove. That would have to be one helluva of foul ball. OMG

Not quite the same as Ted Williams homering in his last ever at bat, Ichiro homers in what is probably his last at bat ever in Seattle:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_9ZdEocwuM
