Forbes Field Picturesque Forbes Field was the home ballpark of the National League's Pittsburgh Pirates from 1909 to 1970. It was one of the first modern type ballparks made wholly of steel and concrete. It also was the first to have telephones in the press box and elevators. The first player to smack a home run over the double-decked right field grandstand was Babe Ruth in 1935. Undoubtedly the most famous home run in Forbes Field's history was socked by Bill Mazeroski to win the 1960 World Series. Every October 13, Pirate fans gather at the former site of Forbes Field (which has been absorbed by the University of Pittsburgh) to listen to the broadcast of that famous game on its anniversary. One strange fact about Forbes Field: Despite it being considered a pitcher's ballpark, a no-hitter was never thrown there.

Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig The scariest sight ever to face a big league pitcher: Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, pictured here in a photo I'd date around 1931. In 1927 Babe Ruth hit a record 60 homers to lead the American League. Gehrig was second with 47. In third place was another Yankee, Tony Lazzeri, with a mere 18.

Danny Almonte Scandal 2001 Remeber Danny Almonte? He was the 5-foot-8 star pitcher at the 2001 Little League World Series. Almonte struck out 62 of the 72 batters he faced. He threw a perfect game too. Danny was honored by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Trouble was Danny was two years too old to be playing in the LLWS. Danny's father, Felipe, had falsified Danny's Dominican Republic birth certificate so it read 1989 instead of 1987. Because Danny towered over most of the other players in the tournament, accusations that he was too old were widespread. The truth was finally uncovered by two journalists from Sports Illustrated. Danny's Bronx, New York team had to forfeit their third-place standing. Felipe Almonte faced charges of filing a false document when he was deported back to the Dominican Republic. To make matters worse, there was no record of Danny attending school in the year his team went to the LLWS. He could not speak any English.

East German Steroid Swimmers At the 1976 Montreal Olympics, American Shirley Babashoff was supposed to be the female version of Mark Spitz. Babashoff was a threat to win six gold medals. Instead, she won just one gold medal and four silvers. In every race she lost, she lost to an East German. The star of the East German women's swimming team was Kornelia Ender (pictured here). Babashoff was immediately suspicious of the East Germans because of their muscular builds and deep voices. She claimed the dressing room 'sounded like a coed room.' At the time, Babashoff was criticized as a sore loser. The press dubbed her 'Surly Shirley.' After East Germany collapsed in 1989 the truth came out: East German athletes were regularly given steroids via injections to increase their athletic capabilities. Babashoff now campaigns to have the East German medal results nullified.

Columbo Likes His Job My favorite episode from the glory years of Columbo is 'Try And Catch Me' from 1977. In it Ruth Gordon plays a famous mystery writer named Abigail Mitchell. Mitchell kills the ne'er-do-well husband of her late beloved niece because she thinks he killed his wife. (Got it?) This scene is especially appealing to me because Columbo outlines why he likes his job--and hints that he knows that Abigail Mitchell is a murderess.
