"White Christmas" at the Ballpark

The stars of the holiday staple were famous baseball fans.

It's Christmas week. The time of fruitcakes, Rickey Henderson, Ralphie shooting his eye out, and, of course, White Christmas. The classic holiday movie has been a staple of family Christmases for nearly sixty years, bringing Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye into living rooms since 1954. For a movie dealing with the return of World War II veterans, vaudeville music, and snow-covered celebrations, the baseball ties are bigger than you might expect.

The world was reminded recently that Bing Crosby, the man who most famously sang the film's title song, was a partial owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates at one time. In fact, it was a long-forgotten recording stored in Crosby's wine cellar that gave us the only known full-length recording of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series—the famous Bill Mazeroski series-clinching home run.

Minor League Update

25-Man Roster of Prospects Traded This Offseason

A 25-man roster of prospects traded this winter.

For my last Minor League Update of 2012, I put together a 25-man roster of prospects who have been traded so far this offseason. There was a lot of starting pitching depth with four or five pretty good pitchers that didn't make the cut. There weren't any good first base prospects and only two very good outfield prospects. Besides that, it's a pretty solid squad.

In parentheses is their 'original team to their current team'. Also listed is their projected level at the start of 2013. Click on the player's name to access the player card with stats and other info.

Have a Happy New Year!
