Favorite MLB Moment

I know we’ve done the Most Memorable Moments (Ripken 1, Gibson 2, etc) thing at MLB in recent years, but after watching Manny’s unbelievable Lambeau Leap/double play he pulled off today in Baltimore I was just wondering what your favorite MLB moment was. Something that unquestionably just sticks out, might not be the most famous moment, just personally unforgettable to you. Post yours on your blog and leave the URL here and maybe we can highlight some on MLBlogs.com and have some Manny-like fun with this. Gotta tell you that our entire office here at the MLB headquarters was going crazy and everyone telling colleagues around them to watch it. That is one of the reasons that our MLB.com Mobile Video Alerts are insane-popular so far this year; you are somewhere at work or running an errand and suddenly you get a Video Alert on your mobile phone and you are watching Manny Being Like Manny Never Before. I wrote a story on MLB.com during the last World Series about all the top Manny moments over the years, and I think that has to jump right to the top of the list, don’t you think? Maybe over him going to the bathroom inside the Green Monster during a pitching change and stopping the action.

Also, somewhere out there is the fan who got the high-five from Manny in the home run seats during that double play, and you are most definitely invited to start a blog here and tell us what it was like. Someone find that fan! It wouldn’t be that unusual, as fans in key situations come up with MLBlogs every now and then. Remember Shaun Dean?

It’s 24 minutes after game time and I have my Jon Lester entry up and ready for when you get the graphic up tomorrow (you better get a graphic up tomorrow or else you’ll have a very angry blogger on your hands) in celebration of his no-hitter.

Gotcha. Thanks Mark. Hopefully I can at least get my spheroid posted…😉

JB, thanks for asking. That template is for bloggers within the “MLB Family” (ie employed by Major League Baseball) or has been associated with MLB in some way.

I was wondering the same thing, JB. I read a lot of great blogs on MLBlogs now, and some are considered to be ‘Pro’ and some are not. To become a Pro Blog, I think that we need to have a professional tie-in to Major League Baseball (such as being players, coaches, media, celebrities, etc.). Or, I think that we need to have been long-time members of MLBlogs who actually paid for the service before it became free. Hopefully, Mark will let us in on how the system works here.

What are the chances of my blog becoming “pro”? Not sure how that works.

Not currently deployed but as I’ve said in previous posts the relaunch was just first in coming series of improvements, most notably f…r…e…e. Thanks again for blogging!

You’re right- word of mouth is more efficient and that’s my responsibility which I will accept to take on. But, honestly, Mark, as far as the search app is concerned, I don’t think production is the issue. When it’s tucked away behind pages of results, some of which are blogs that haven’t been active in a very long time, and some of which are merely more posts of the same few blogs. I notice the same pattern for other blogs. I was just hoping to get insight on how that search worked. I guess I still like the notion of a listing of a team’s bloggers. I understand it’s not realistic to manage manually, which you did in the past, but there must be some way of tagging blogs, just because they use the team’s logo and layout.

Red Sox Angst: Your blog did show up when I click through the customized Google search results:

http://www.google.com/custom?q=red+sox&num=100&hl=en&safe=off&client=google-coop-np&cof=AH:left%3BCX:MLBlogs%252Ecom%2520Google%2520Search%3BL:http://www.google.com/coop/intl/en-US/images/custom_search_sm.gif%3BLH:65%3BLP:1%3BGFNT:%23666666%3BDIV:%23cccccc%3B&cx=015156957566845151616:memdg60k4_i&adkw=AELymgVRPa2lEAc43DanQDLTWqcJth28WYExuyKoHXk4QA8naFkVI7vIZT0ZOBrQNh4y4aWSPVWR8mypgobuJ4sd3F31ZYoMiyih0rFM0gI_pTLBH9ajlTs3sBCILYaFaiPmZyCwiwG0&start=200&sa=N

It returned this:

It was about the sixth page of results. Remember that you are competing with Red Sox Nation. Great to be a part of a winner, but also a lot of people to share it with. Just keep posting as much as you can and get the word around Red Sox Nation! Good luck with it!

Mark,
Why doesn’t my blog show up in the google search when I put in “Red Sox”?
