Butler breaks up the double play
March 2012 - Billy Butler, Kansas City Royals DH, slides in hard to break up a double play. Cincinnati Reds shortstop Paul Janish did not even bother with a throw.
Janish currently in the Royals organization, with the AAA Omaha Storm Chasers.
May 2013 - Catcher Matt Pagnozzi at bat for the AAA Gwinnett Braves.
Pagnozzi is with the Brewers organization this year. He was called up today - one of many players added as rosters expand today.
The Big Donkey
Adam Dunn at bat.
Dunn was traded to Oakland today. He’s also announced that he will retire after this season.
August 2011 - Catcher Corky Miller signs autographs for fans before a minor league game.
Corky is officially retiring, and the AAA Louisville Bats are celebrating his long career with them tomorrow, with
Corky Miller Night. His #8 jersey will be retired - the first number the Bats have ever retired, I believe.
The Houston Astrodome
The Astrodome is the former home of the Houston Astros and the Tennessee Titans (AKA the team formerly known as the Houston Oilers).
It sits empty now. Voters did not approve a plan to convert it into a convention center, and the city has not decided what to do with it.
Davit Dewitt “Homer” Bailey
May 2009 - Pitcher Homer Bailey with the AAA Louisville Bats.
Bailey is likely out for the season, suffering from some sort of elbow issue.
March 8, 2013 - Luis Valbuena walks.
The game would end up being rained out.

Manfred has been named the new commissioner of MLB. He’ll take over when Bud Selig retires next January.
Safe at third
