Yankee Players Recreate The Great Bambino Scene From ‘The Sandlot’ [Video]

The 1993 film The Sandlot is considered by many to be high on the list of the best baseball movies of all time.

The story features a scene where a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth gets put into play in a game. The kid who stole the ball from his Dad has no idea who Babe Ruth is, much to the chagrin of his teammates, who let him know how important it is.

Now, the New York Yankees have re-created the scene, demonstrating for posterity how bad athletes trying to act can be.

It’s Time to End Daylight Saving Time [Video]

For years, I have ranted that changing the clocks twice a year does more harm than good.

Statistics have proven me right. Immediately following a time change, productivity goes down, accidents go up, and people have more heart attacks, The New York Times reported.

It is National Anthem Day, the day "The Star Spangled Banner" officially became our National Anthem back in 1931. (Before then, it was still our national anthem, but not officially).

It is still rated as the hardest national anthem to perform by singers the world over, but if this two-year-old can belt it out, there's hope for all of us.
