For many fans. one item that they always bring to the ballpark is their baseball gloves. We all know why they bring them – it’s so they can catch a ball that has either been hit or touched by a player. This has been part of baseball tradition for a long time. But as of late, this tradition is now under some scrutiny by many in the media because of the tragedy that struck during a Texas Rangers home game. Just [...]
According to the New York Daily News, Izzy has asked Sandy Alderson to not trade him. When asked about being traded, Isringhausen said this. I have two places in my hear; St. Louis, because I’m from there, and New York, because this is where I started.

He went out there with a foot injury and made the best of it, despite giving up runs that eventually won the game for the Pirates.
