Alex Gordon | Conniption Shot

10/27/2015- Conniption Shots don’t come much bigger than this one.  Alex Gordon tied Game 1 of the 2015 World Series, in the bottom of the ninth, by hitting a Jeurys Familia pitch into an absolute CONNIPTION.

I’m quite certain Eric Hosmer, whose error in the eighth gave the Mets the lead, was happier than Gordon and I don’t blame him.  The media was trying to hang the “Bill Buckner” monicker on him before the game was over.

For Tigers fans, remember when we used to see Jose Miguel Cabrera hit balls into a Conniption like Gordon did? And in key situations. I hope those days aren’t over.

Blog Help…

This is a question to Mike from Minoring in Baseball, or anybody else that might be reading this blog.  I want to change the theme of this blog back to an official MLB wordpress theme.  The problem is, I want to add my custom header and I can’t figure out how to do it.  I know it can be done but I can’t find any wordpress help on how.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Royals Back to the Series

With Toronto’s loss I’m out of my pool but I don’t care.  This is the match up I wanted to see.  Although Granderson is my favorite player and I’d like to see him get a ring, I like the Royals too, so I don’t really care who wins this series.  I’m just looking forward to watching it.

What about this game winning run by Lorenzo Cain?  He scores from first, on a single, with nobody out in the bottom of the eighth.
