  • I...I don’t think I like this.
  • Congratulations to Aaron Judge and our friends over at Pinstripe Alley for the history that was made last night! Here are some cute photos (yes, cute, look at that smile) for you to look at.
  • The Baseball Hall of Fame celebrated by finally getting to use the photo they had queued up for the past week:

This also begs the question: if Judge hits #62, is he the true home run king? Or does Barry Bonds — who hit 73 home runs in a season he was later found to have been using steroids during — still the champ?


If Aaron Judge hits at least 62 home runs this season, is he the new home run king?

Cincinnati Red Stockings 1869 Trade Card

Trivia Question

In 1869, CF/Manager Harry Wright formed the very first all-professional baseball team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, and did what no other team had previously done — he paid the entire team a salary. There were 10 players on the squad — how many were from Cincinnati?


How many members of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings were from the city they played for?

Happy birthday to...!

No one. No one was born today.

Just kidding, but no Mariners nor Mariners-affiliate players were born today, nor were any LL staff members.

We did get an email for a belated birthday wish from a reader that we do want to share because she harkens back to a memory I think we can all relate to:

So, with that, Happy Belated Birthday, Rose K. (65)! Hope your September 24th birthday was the best!

Don’t forget: We’ve got the players and LL staff covered, but if you or someone you love has an upcoming birthday, send us an email at with the subject line “Daily Catch Birthday Wishes” and include first name, last initial or last name, and age you’re/they’re turning if you want that part included.
