    Braves want to win in their new ballpark. I hope I can get to a game this year. Tickets might be hard to come by. Single game tickets go on sale 10 March

    Tigers pitchers and catchers report on Tuesday!

    The pitchers and catchers will be there.....I don't think there will be any real tigers.....unless they are trying to see who can run fastest.

    Tigers would be one way to thin down the roster. Save trouble of sending people down to the minors. If you survive, you make the team. You will have a good base stealing team for sure.

    The Mud Hens games are a great place to watch Tigers players.

    Baseball hasn't had a professional two-sport athlete since Drew Henson played in eight games with the Yankees in 2002-03 and nine others with the Cowboys and Lions. Mookie Betts could be the latest. Instead of football, Betts is a star bowler. After appearing in the World Series of Bowling and tossing a perfect game last winter, Betts took part in Chris Paul's annual Celebrity Invitational Charity Bowling Tournament.

    Needing eight pins to defeat J.T. "Action" Jackson, an actor and professional bowler, Betts approached his shot. After letting the ball go, Betts didn't bother sticking around. He sensed it was a strike -- his sixth in a row -- and celebrated with the Larry Bird lookaway.

    Unfortunately, Betts' team would lose in the finals. After the Red Sox outfielder converted a spare to give himself and pro bowler Tommy Jones a five-pin lead heading into the 10th frame, Chris Barnes gave himself and Paul the victory by "striking out" (a good term in bowling) in the final frame.

    Either way, Betts has become an impressive double duty Dude. It can't be easy to construct bridges between baseball and bowling stardom, but Betts is doing precisely that.

    Bowling is not a sport.

    If you can drink a beer and play it, it really only is a game

    Baseball counts in that regard too at the rec level.
