Who's in First - August 1 2010

Professor Bukiet and Baseball Bob are tied with 4.5 points each

We are four months into the season with Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology holding steady.  This month Baseball Bob (the smartest man we know) has surged to tie the professor.  Both brainiacs have 4.5 points.  Both men predicted that the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals would make the playoffs.  Currently the Cardinals are tied for first in the NL Central with the Cincinnati Reds.  This is how each man got one half point.

Bukiet also predicted that the Tampa Bay Rays and Atlanta Braves would make the playoffs.  Baseball Bob has predicted that the Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giants would make the playoffs.  If the season were to end today, all of these teams would make the playoffs.

Tied for third are Baseball PhD’s Who and‘s Rodney Johnson (Johnson is also the official scorer for the Arizona Diamondbacks). Both man and boy predicted that the New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals would also make the playoffs.  Who also predicted that the Texas Rangers would make the post season while Johnson predicted that the San Francisco Giants will also still be playing in October.

Can anyone catch Professor Bukiet?  The key teams to watch are Tampa Bay and Texas.  If both of these teams continue to play well, the Professor’s legacy will continue to grow.

Eddie GrantEddie Grant baseball cardEddie Grant Grave

Edward Leslie Grant (May 21, 1883 – October 5, 1918) was one of three (3)  Major League Baseball players killed during the Great War.  Grant played third base for the Cleveland Naps (1905), Philadelphia Phillies (1907 – 1910), Cincinnati Reds (1911 – 1913) and the New York Giants (1913 – 1915).  Grant usually batted lead off.

Grant’s nickname was “Harvard Eddie.”  Grant graduated from Harvard in 1905 and practiced law after his baseball retirement.

This Patriot was one of the first men to enlist when the United States entered World War I in April 1917. Grant served as Captain of the 77th Infantry Division.

During the battle of Meuse-Argonne Offensive, all of Grant’s superiors were killed or wounded.  Grant took command of his troops on a four day search for the “Lost Battalion.”  During the search, an exploding shell killed Grant on October 5, 1918.  This Patriot is buried at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in Lorraine, France.

This Patriot died at the age of 35.  “Harvard Eddie’s”  ultimate sacrifice has allowed his fellow countrymen to live free for another 92 years.

Slave Pen - photo 1Next to Great American Ballpark is the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.  An inspiring museum that every great American needs to visit.  One of the most moving exhibits is located on the second floor – the Slave Pen.

The Slave Pen was built in the 1830’s and found on a farm in Mason, Kentucky.  This slave pen was used by Captain John W. Anderson to house slaves as they were being transported to the South.

This Slave Pen was dismantled over a two year period and shipped to the National Underground Freedom Center nearly 60 miles away.  It was then put back together and serves as a powerful reminder of the evils of slavery.  Paul Bernish from the National Underground Freedom Center will be interviewed during our podcast featuring the Cincinnati Reds.  This powerful interview will be released on Friday, May 28, 2010.
