Game-used bat collectors anxiously await something new to chase each Mother's Day and once again on Sunday, players will grab special pink-tinted lumber to support breast cancer programs.
- Louisville Slugger created the pink bat initiative with Major League Baseball in 2006 to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure
- Orders have tripled since 2006, when aboutt 100 players participated. This year, more than 290 MLB players have ordered pink Louisville Slugger bats. Louisville Slugger is donating two pink bats per player - over $40,000 worth of product.
- MLB will collect the game-used pink Louisville Slugger bats and auction them on mlb.com.
This was in the East Rutherford, New Jersey police blotter:
Last Sunday, a dealer told police he observed two pieces of memorabilia missing from his table at the card show show at the Sheraton Hotel, located at 2 Meadowlands Plaza Dr.
The Washington, NY dealer told police a 16 by 20-inch JAS certified autographed photo of Muhammad Ali and a 8 by 10-inch autographed photo of Willie Mays had been stolen sometime during the show on April 30. The Ali photo was valued at $600 by the dealer and the Mays photo was valued at $200.
If you haven't seen the show Pawn Stars on the History Channel, it's worth a look. Most people have by now, though. The reality show takes place inside a Las Vegas pawn shop. The owners and workers of the shop have become celebrities of sorts and the show is a major hit.
Quite often, sports memorabilia makes its way onto the show, and while the guys aren't exactly experts in the field, it is fun to see them try to buy things. Wednesday night, owner Rick Harrison was on Letterman, bringing along a PSA-DNA authenticated--but far from perfect Babe Ruth ball and chatting about the shop and the show.
