MLB All Star Game Break
July 12, 2004
Link to MLB Website
Tuesday's Major League Baseball All Star game (No. 75) in Houston will be played in Minute Maid Park, formerly known as Enron Stadium. Roger Clemens will be the National League starter. Clemens' first All Star game was in 1986 (No. 57), the last time the All Star Game was played in Houston (at the AstroDome). Back then, Clemens was pitching for the American League and he pitched three perfect innings...Clemens teaming up with Piazza ought to resonate with meaning...The Houston Astros hired a consulting firm that reported the game will infuse the Houston economy with $48 million. Sales tax revenue will be about $1.5 million. (Source). This part of downtown Houston has been revitalized, the Super Bowl and now the All Star Game have made this year a good one for restaurants like Mia Bella, Cava bistro, St. Pete's Dancing Marlin. But Mike Roberson owner of Cabo the Original Mix-Mex Grill wonders if after the games are gone will business be as robust. When the visitors leave, "it'll just be us," he told a Houston Chronicle reporter...The Cosmic Baseball Association dispensed with its version of an All Star game years ago. The cosmic team with the best overall record gets the home field advantage during the Cosmic Universal Series. There's no need to rely on players not on your team to secure that advantage. All Star games are about personal, not team achievement, ask Ted Williams. Well, you can't ask Ted, at least not at the moment. Maybe in a million years, you can. Speaking of moments, the 1999 All Star Game (N0. 70) in Boston's Fenway Park when Ted showed up for his last visit, well, that was the best All Star moment in many years.



Cosmic Game: Beats Beat Virgins, 6-1
June 14, 2004
Philip Whalen- Link to Game Report
The boys of the Beat Generation have a reputation for not being very considerate of their women folk. Literary history intruded on the cosmic baseball field during this game as the Dharma Beats pretty well disrespected the Vestal Virgins. In a game that saw Virgin secondbasewoman Hilary Clinton commit three errors (leading to three unearned runs), the Beats had a field day. Beat starter David Kammerer pitched eight strong innings, giving up one run and serving up ten strikeouts. Virgin pitcher Sylvia Plath didn't make it through four innings as she continues to struggle to get on track this season. Philip Whalen shined at the plate going 4 for 5 with two doubles and three runs batted in.
