The coolest baseball poster you’ll see today

5 Comments

Last year I did a couple of posts on a couple of extremely cool baseball posters. They’re from the Baseball Diamond Dictionary set, created by a man named Jeremy Reiss. They’re made up of cool, stylized baseball slang with sort of pictographic representations of the terms. First came the hitting edition. Then came the pitching edition. At the time, Jeremy said he’d do a third and final edition — for fielding — but that it may take a while because he moved across country and started a new job.

It was totally worth the wait. The fielding edition is now out. I just received it and it’s fantastic:

Like the other two, the fielding print is 12″ by 12″. They fit pretty well in those album cover frames too. I am going to hang this new one up ASAP, because they are the coolest things ever and I finally have my set. You can order the whole set of three together (for a discount) or any of the three individually (hitting here, pitching here and fielding here).

They are by far the best baseball-related works of art I’ve ever had.

Report: Yankees trade Chase Headley to the Padres

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that a source is telling him that the Yankees have traded Bryan Mitchell and Chase Headley to the San Diego Padres.

Headley, a third baseman, hit .273/.352/.406 for the Yankees last year. He, of course, played for the Padres from 2007 through the middle of 2014, when he was dealt to New York. Mitchell has pitched 48 games for the Yankees, most from the pen, over four seasons, with an ERA of 4.94 in 98.1 innings. He doesn’t strike out many and he walks a lot.

No word yet on what the Padres could be sending to New York. We’ll obviously update as soon as more is learned.
