  1. Things We Saw Today: Stay on Target With the X-Wing Knife Block

    May the fork be with you!

    Tired of dicing womp rats with your T-16 cutlery back at home? Good. You're ready for the big leagues now, kid. Just remember, these are not for stabbing! Don't go using 'em for Alderaan reasons.

  2. Robocop Will Throw the First Pitch at a Baseball Game Tonight, but the Robocop Statue Will Have to Wait

    Unless it breaks the law, then Robocop will escort the baseball to jail.

    Tonight at a Detroit Tigers (they are not real tigers, but humans) basesball match against the Toronto Blue Jays (we've yet to confirm whether they are birds or humans) Robocop will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, possibly at a criminal.

  3. A Student-Made Robot Threw the First Pitch at a Baseball Game Last Week

    Warning: operating system requires that peanuts and crackerjacks be acquired.

    Okay, that's it. Ladies, gentlemen, and variations thereof, we need to have a serious discussion about the "first pitch" of a baseball game, because it has been getting exponentially more ridiculous lately. First dinosaurs, then cats, and now robots? I fear that it's only a matter of time before Michael Jackson's hologram gets asked to throw.

  4. Tara the “Hero Cat” Will “Throw” the “First Pitch” at a “Baseball Game”

    Will the first pitch be with a ball of string? What's happening?

    Tara, the cat who defended a young boy from a dog attack, will be throwing out the first pitch at a minor league base balls game. Wait. How?

  5. Baseball Is Boring, but Dinosaur Baseball Is Our New Favorite Sport

    Now replace all the other people with dinosaurs and play ball!

    The Padres are a baseball team made up entirely of peoples' dads (we think) and also they have a freaking dinosaur. Watch their dino toss out the ceremonial first pitch, which should have been the last pitch, because what idiots would go up against a team with a dinosaur? What's the name of the Padres' baseballing stadium? Oh right: Jurassic Park.

  7. Comedian Rob Delaney Takes Control of the MLB Twitter Account, Hilarity Ensues

    Full disclosure: I think baseball is boring, but I think comedian Rob Delaney is ridiculously interesting. Delaney has control of the Major League Baseball Twitter account, and the results are amazing. Besides the jokes themselves, there's the added bonus of seeing the replies from baseball fans who don't understand what's going on.

  8. Urine-Controlled Video Games Finally Becoming Reality

    You might not be familiar with the minor league baseball team the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, or their home field Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, but you're probably going to want to take a trip there this summer. They're the first sports venue in the world to offer an interactive "Urinal Gaming System," which is a video game you control with your pee. This is also the first time I've looked forward to baseball season.

  9. R.I.P. Lavonne “Pepper” Paire-Davis, Inspiration for Dottie in A League of Their Own

    so long and thanks for all the fish

    True Story: The last time I saw the tail end of A League of Their Own, I had to look away so that I didn't cry (becausethere'snocryinginbaseball). True details: I was running. On a treadmill. At the gym. And the television was on mute. One of the last times I was actually unable to not cry even by great force of will at a movie screening, it was a combination of watching The Muppets and knowing that Jim Henson's wife and daughter were in attendance. So, from this evidence, I postulate that if there was anything guaranteed to make me cry buckets of salt tears, it would have been watching A League of Their Own with Lavonne "Pepper" Paire-Davis, who died this weekend at the age of 88.

  10. Penny Marshall Insisted On Athletic Actresses For A League of Their Own [VIDEO]

    Meanwhile...

The film, a fictional representation of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, starred Geena Davis, Madonna, and more but as it turns out, there were a few actresses who didn't make the cut for a very specific reason - they couldn't play baseball. Listen to Marshall's stance on the casting process and find out which other famous actress didn't wind up with a part because of her husband. Catch the rest of the interview, including a chat with Davis, tonight on MLB. (via The Hollywood Reporter) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
