Ryan Raburn’s Awful Throw Leads To ‘Little League Home Run’ (Video)

That probably wasn’t the most aggravating part of the night, though. That came in the eighth inning when Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas hit a slicing fly ball down the left-field line. Indians left fielder Ryan...

Ryan Raburn spiked throw results in 'inside-the-park-HR'

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall.

Former Tiger Ryan Raburn trends for wrong reason

Ryan Raburn was trending on Twitter Thursday night -- for all the wrong reasons. Raburn, a former Tigers outfielder now with the Cleveland Indians, made an unsuccessful attempt to dive for a ball in foul territory. Raburn then got up to get the ball but his throw was, to say the least, beyond unfortunate, especially in a scoreless game in the eighth inning. Kansas City's Mike...

How old is Indians pitcher Scott Atchison? 'His first career strikeout was Babe Ruth'

Indians reliever Scott Atchison is 38 years old, which is about 10 years older than the team's average player age of 28.7. While he's not the oldest player on the team -- Jason Giambi is 41 -- the gray-haired right-hander surely wears the part of the grizzled veteran quite well. Just ask his youthful teammates, who spent the better part of Tuesday night having fun at Atchison...
