    Got The Arm by Jeff Passan. Looks more interesting than the reviews!

    Me, my brother, and sister have been getting baseball cards in our stockings since we were little. My parents haven't stopped that tradition. They have even included our spouses now, lol.

    I got a bat autographed by Nick Markakis. That was pretty cool.

    This is the baseball equivalent of getting socks for Christmas.

    It's a stick. Not a bat.
    AJ does all the other things just as well if not better than Mac - zbhargrove

    I don't think Nolan Ryan should be a poster child for mechanics - SAV

    I gave a copy of John Thorn's The Hidden Game of Baseball to my older brother. One of the seminal works on the use of statistical analysis in baseball originally published in 1984 (19 years before Moneyball).

    I have to wear a uniform at the hospital but you can wear custom lanyards. One of the ones I got for Christmas is powder blue like the 80's uni's. I've never seen one in stores.

    My wife got me into the Legacy Brick Program.

    Pretty neat, will be nice to see once they get them installed.
