More pine tar! (Just keep it out of your glove if you're a pitcher, i.e., Rays' Joel Peralta).

I like the wild eyed pin head trying to catch the bat with a glove.

I like to think he supports Obama.

Jeez, it's a good that there are so many empty seats when the M's are in town.

Quick! Bring in the safety nannies. All fans must wear helmets, protective goggles and padded gloves. Bats must be encased in at least 6" of bubble wrap. Station enforcement officers from the federal Baseball Safety Administration in all seating sections. Until this is done, we risk extinction of the human race.

See? Even the ballplayers hate interleague play.

Nice pic. Very Norman Rockwell, but with more terror and screaming.

Is that Ray Liotta with the glove?
