The curveball grip is fairly simple and, unlike other pitches, allows a pitcher to maintain a good grip on the ball, and therefore, control, and throwing an effective curveball involves more than just your arm. There is no specific moment when a coach or parent will say it is time now to throw curving ball. However, the proper age for the player to be able to throw curving ball is 14 or 15 years old. If young players throw curveballs on a consistent basis at younger ages they can cause damage to their elbows and thus hinder the growth process.

If it were easy to get 3,000 hits, many players would have done it, however, three factors stand in the way: 1) Injuries. 2) Longevity. 3) Consistency. Craig Biggio has it all and proved it by punching his ticket to the Baseball Hall of Fame when he retires.

He holds the all-time single season major league records for most home runs (73), on base percentage (.609), slugging percentage (.863), and walks (232). Could he be the best ever?

Yankee Stadium Seating Chart - Are you planning to attend a New York Yankees game anytime soon? Here is a breakdown of the various seating at Yankee Stadium. There are two sections at Yankee Stadium that offer fans with a more economical way to see a game, The Tier Reserved outfield and the Bleachers.

The Bleacher sections are better in that they are not elevated as high but as with many bleacher sections in most MLB parks a birds eye view is hard to come by. Bleacher sections are numbered as 37 to 59.

Philadelphia Phillies' fans are arguably the least patient and most volatile in baseball, and I know why. A report in USA Today (7-3-07) notes that the Phillies are on the verge of becoming the first pro sports franchise to record 10,000 losses. They had 9,996 losses as of July 3, 2007. The next nearest teams in losses are the Atlanta Braves (9,675) and Chicago Cubs (9,421). I would have guessed the Cubs but not the Braves.
