Bobblehead Night At Yankee Stadium Goes Horribly Wrong!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueZportzBaseball

mariano rivera bobblehead night goes wrong

Any baseball fan knows the best nights to go to a game is on a bobblehead night, where you can get your hands on a free, disproportionate, plastic figurine of your favorite players!

So when the New York Yankees announced they would be giving away 18,000 bobbleheads of their iconic closer Mariano Rivera, TONS of fans showed up!

That's when things started to get ugly!

Apparently, the truck that was supposed to deliver the tiny figurines broke down, so the fans were given a voucher instead, but apparently those were in short supply!

Then, during the third inning, the truck FINALLY arrived with the bobbleheads and fans with vouchers were told to line up, but things didn't go quite as smoothly as they were hoping!

One fan describe the chaotic scene, saying:

Who knew Victoria Justice had such an arm??

The Gold singer was recently called upon by her hometown team, the Tampa Bay Rays to throw out the ceremonial first pitch in their matchup against the Toronto Blue Jays, and she had no problem stepping up to the plate!

Victoria made her way to the mound for her windup, and not only did she avoid having a Carly Rae Jepsen moment, but she threw a PERFECT strike that made it all the way to the catcher!

Impressive!

And we didn't even mention how cute she looks in a baseball jersey! Somebody sign this girl up!

Filed under: TV NewsBaseballDerek Jeter

Derek Jeter Documentary

Derek Jeter reached a career milestone and made sports history when he hit his 3,000th professional baseball against the Tampa Bay Rays earlier this month.

On July 28th we'll get an extensive look at the New York Yankee shortstop's pursuit of the accomplishment when HBO airs the documentary Derek Jeter 3K.

According to sources, the The MLB Productions and HBO-produced one-hour special offers footage of Jeter both at and away from the ballpark, while also highlighting two games during which Jeter wore a microphone.

Luckily, one of those two games was the one where he smacked his 3,000th hit out of the park for a home run!

Sounds like a must-see special for Yankee fans everywhere!

Lucky Yankees Fan Catches Derek Jeter's 3,000th Hit…And Gives It Back!

Filed under: BaseballDerek Jeter

Now that is what we like to call sportsmanship!

A lucky 23-year-old fan named Christian Lopez caught Derek Jeter's record setting 3,000th hit at Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

He could have kept it for bragging rights or sold it off to the highest bidding sports buff for a projected $250,000, but instead Lopez decided it belongs in the hands of the Bronx Bomber himself and gave it back to Jeter!

After returning the in exchange for meeting his baseball idol, Lopez told reporters:

"His accomplishment is a milestone. Like someone said, only 27 other people have done this. It's not an everyday thing and he deserves every second of it."

Although the fan did not ask for anything in return other than meeting Jeter, his act of kindness did not go unnoticed by the team he roots for game after game. The Yankees rewarded Lopez with four seats in a team suite for the rest of the season, INCLUDING playoffs!

Probably still not worth $250,000, but still not a bad deal and it's always awesome to see people care more about other people than they do about money.

Check out the video above to meet the lucky fan and get all the details!
