Bob Costas, the legendary broadcaster on NBC and the MLB Network, was kind enough to sit down with us for an exclusive interview about all things baseball on Hall of Fame Weekend. Bob spoke about the game today and what it means for him to be at the Hall of Fame this year with no current players being inducted. 
 

One on One at the Second Annual Baseball Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony

by Mack Rosenberg, Nolan Silbernagel

This is only the second year of the baseball Hall of Fame awards ceremony, but this year's group of honorees have impacted the game for half a century.  On Saturday afternoon, the hall honored sportswriter Paul Hagen, broadcaster Tom Cheek (posthumously), Dr. Frank Jobe, and movie producer Thomas Tell in a moving ceremony at Double Day field in Cooperstown. Nolan Silbernagel and myself, as part of our special edition of One on One from the Hall of Fame, had the pleasure of talking to two of these recipients.

Last week Milwaukee Brewers leftfielder Ryan Braun was suspended for 65 games by Major League Baseball for violating its basic agreement and joint drug prevention and treatment program.

Finally, baseball got the man that had cheated them, on the field and in court.

Mariano Takes the Mound in Final All Star Game

This past Tuesday, Mariano Rivera stopped at Mets-Willets point on the 7 Train for the very last time.  Well, he didn’t necessarily take the subway, but you get the point- the Greatest Closer of All Time made his final appearance in Queens, on the biggest in season stage possible: the All Star Game.  The song was there. The cheers were there.  And of course, the chills and the tears were there.  It was certainly a moment baseball fans who tuned into the game and those who were in attendance will remember forever.

Be nice. Most of us have heard it time and again, whether at playgrounds, in classrooms, cafeterias, you name it. No matter, how simple it sounds, so many of us have experienced bullying in some manner.
