At my age I hate to wish away time, but it can't get here soon enough. I'm ready for some ball.

When I started the countdown I was just so tired of football season that I was looking forward to anything good that could happen to Arkansas sports. As the basketball team seems to be on the right track, I decided to interrupt the countdown for respect of basketball season. Of course anyone can keep the count going if they wish. I'll wait until about 30 days from the start of the season or until the basketball team tanks(hopefully this will not happen), whichever occurs first, to pick up my help with the countdown.

69 days!!!!!!!!!!!!  Woo!  I seriously cannot wait much longer, so freaking excited.  Oh and I am already starting to lose my mind over in Jump Ball...but whenever I start losing my mind over there, I always start thinking happy thoughts that baseball season and hanging out in EI all day at work is right around the corner...  69 days until we see potentially the best Arkansas Baseball Team to ever take the field!  Wooooo!

It's now time to get things in order again. When we reach two months, things seem like it's gonna actually get here. By the time SEC play starts in basketball, it'll be just about time to pull the troops together and have us a baseball forum again.

We can have both  :) , and honestly, I was torn between the two.  Carew was just a little ahead of my generation and Smoltz was always one of those guys I loved to watch pitch, except when he was pitching against the Cards.

Of the big 3, he was the one I wanted on the bump in the postseason

He dominated in the postseason.  I'm not sure we'll ever see a 1-2-3 punch like that again.

Couldn't think of another #28 and no braves really jumped out at me. Plus, this guy has my favorite Berman nickname if all time....

Blyleven was a good one.  Guess you could have also went with Fletcher's number from last year.

Ryno was the guy I modeled my game after. He was a childhood hero. If ryno did it in a game, so did I. I wore 23, played second base, wore the same cleats, batted like him. All through little league, he was my guy.

Hey, back in the day there were 2 choices for everyday Tv baseball. braves and cubs. I generally chose the cubs because of Ryno and Harry Carey. I used to be able to name every player and position for all 3 teams, cards being the third.

Oh yes, I remember. One of the earliest memories I have is watching the Cubbies on WGN sitting on my grandfathers knee, then graduating to the barstool, then the recliner next too him over the years. This upcoming season will be the first without him, Hogs and Cubs baseball will be bittersweet this year.

I loved the Braves and Mets Rivalry.....and so did Chipper. He named his son Shea. He loved the fans and they did their best to get under his skin. But ultimately, if you ask a Mets fan....they admired him too.

Was it Jacob House that hit the bottom of the 9th Centerfield Salami to walk off South Carolina 12-11? May 9, 2008?

That was the game my wife surprised me with turn back scout tickets - got to sit with the pro scouts behind home plate - had to drive to Little Rock that night after the game and fireworks, and by the time we got there I had determined myself to buy season tickets. There was no way I was missing another game like that because I didn't have a ticket.

Figured we would see DVH in the 2 spot.

You know, after doing a little digging to find other MLB #2s, I couldn't find many known names, other than Jeter ... You would think ole #2 would have a number of infielders attached to it, but not so, apparently. Any old school #2s out there we might know?

BTW, I didn't mean to take over the countdown thread with the Hog pics ...

Most of these aren't household names, but they're all in the HoF...

Red Schoendienst -  Cards
Tommy Lasorda - Dodgers
Billy Herman - Cubs
Nellie Fox - White Sox
Leo Durocher - Dodgers

Yes sir! That was the look that said, "son, I can't make you like it, but I can make you ACT like you like it."

By the way, I'm pretty new around here. This is an awesome thread.
Go Hogs! PLAY BALL!
