  • Doug Flutie Is Trying To Become A Knuckleball Pitcher

    What does it take to become the next great knuckleball pitcher? Most pitchers don’t know the first thing about throwing a knuckleball so it is reasonable to believe that someone with a decent arm could be molded into the next R.A. Dickey. Just look at the greatest knuckleballers of our time. R.A. didn’t start throwing his knuckleball until he was a 32 year old minor leaguer looking for a hail-mary pass to keep him from getting cut. And Tim Wakefield, he was drafted as a third baseman but realized he would never make it to the big leagues as a position player so he worked with knuckleball legend Phil Nikro to develop the pitch. MLB Networks is producing a reality show called “The Next Knuckler” in which Doug Flutie and four other former college quarterbacks are taught by former big league pitcher Tim Wakefield how to throw the knuckleball. The pitcher that wins the competition will receive an invitation to pitch with the Arizona Diamondbacks during Spring Training. Your browser does not support iframes.

  • Photo of the Day: Babe Ruth On The Red Sox

    93 years ago today the Red Sox announced they had sold their 25-year-old all-star pitcher Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees making Ruth’s transition from a pitcher to a power-hitting outfielder complete. To celebrate the occasion we take a look back at one of the all-time Red Sox greats.

  • New Zealand Baseball Team preforms Haka Dance for WBC

    The New Zealand rugby squad is best known for preforming the traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Māori people. Not quite sure having the less intimidating baseball squad, who has never made a baseball classic, preform the dance has the same effect, but the Chinese Taipei seemed to respect it. Unfortunately NZ lost 10-0 after the game was called in the 7th. Your browser does not support iframes.

  • 66 Photos From The San Francisco Giants 2012 World Series Parade [RSVLTS Exclusive]

Hundreds of thousands of fans packed the streets, many in Halloween costumes to cheer on their team.

  • Suddenly Our SF Giants Fan Riot Photos Are Very Important To The Police

    Who knew the photos we shot on early Monday morning at the San Franciso Giants’ fan riot taking place outside our hotel on 3rd and Market Street in downtown San Francisco would be so influential? We told you that there was a group of instigators and idiots trashing vehicles. Well, now it turns out that there is a mini hanhunt taking place for one person in particular who did damage to a $1 million city bus. He isn’t the only guy who needs to be arrested. As we told you three days ago, the two men on the left wearing the red and the white are the biggest culprits of the bunch. We witnessed them thrashing dozens of vehicles and I can guarantee the guy in the SF Giants hat wasn’t the only one demolishing the bus. For photographic evidence of these rioters destroying cars and buses see our photos here. View more photos of the destruction here >>

  • 15 Pro Athletes Who Played For Their Hometown Teams

  • 40 Photos of the San Francisco Giants World Series 2012 Fan Riot [EXCLUSIVE]

    What a night! The timing of RSVLTS.com’s trip to San Francisco couldn’t have been any better. First off, we left NYC only hours before Hurricane Sandy hit, WTF. We also arrived in time to celebrate the Giants beating the Tigers to win their second World Series in three years. Lucky for us our hotel was about half a block from the impromptu fan riot at the intersection of 3rd Street and Market Street. Obviously we bolted out of the hotel with camera in hand to cover the action. There are three types of people at any fan riot. Observers, instigators and idiots. The observers sit on the sidelines watching the action. In the case of San Francisco, 90% of them were smoking the weed. There were also plenty of people capturing the hooliganism on their iPads, which was a hilarious sight that felt perfectly cliche in San Francisco. Then you have the instigators and the idiots. The two go hand-in-hand. The instigators are the guys yelling f”–k the police” for no apparent reason and giving glass bottles to drunk idiots and daring him to throw it. Most of the instigators at this riot (see the guy in the white shirt above, dude more »

  • Where Is Jeffery Maier Today? RSVLTS Investigates

    16 years ago today Jeffrey Maier, a 12-year-old from New Jersey made one of the most important fan plays in baseball history when he deflected a batted ball in-play into the Yankee Stadium stands during Game 1 of the 1996 American League Championship Series. His action altered the course of Game 1, as the resulting home run allowed the Yankees to tie the score. They would go on to win the game and that series, four games to one. Jeffrey Maier changed everything for the 1996 Yankees. If Derek Jeter, a rookie in 1996, popped out instead of hitting the home run who knows how their World Series run, and his swagger filled career, would have changed. So where is Jeff today? We investigate. Our search began on Google where we learned that Jeffrey was a pretty solid college baseball player at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. He was a first-team all-NESCAC selection, played briefly for the Pittsfield Dukes in the New England Collegiate Baseball League in the summer of 2005 and in 2006, he became Wesleyan’s career hits leader. This is where the trail goes dry. With some further digging we found on Facebook that Jeffrey goes by Jeff now. He is 28-years-old more »
