It's a little strange to lose a body part. But that's what happened to St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter when surgeons removed one of his ribs in an attempt to alleviate pressure that was running up his pitching arm.

After the surgery Carpenter was presented with the bone, and he knew just what to do with it:

Celebrate President’s Day with a Look at Presidents Tossing Ceremonial First Pitches

Did you know that President Taft was the first president to toss the ceremonial first pitch before a Major League Baseball game? He did in in 1910 on Opening Day at Griffith Stadium before a Washington Senators game. Since Taft, every president has followed suit taking the mound at some point during his presidency.

Franklin Roosevelt holds the record for the most times a president got the honor, hurling nine different times (eight opening days and an All-Star Game). Here’s a look back at some of the more memorable performances of presidents over the past century:

Don’t Fall Asleep at a Baseball Game [VIDEO]

In my opinion, baseball season ended Saturday night when the Detroit Tigers lost to the Texas Rangers, and were eliminated from the ALCS race. But  technically since were still in the post-season, I want to show you a video of a baseball fan (well, maybe he isn't much of a fan) who fell asleep at a game.

 

I'm glad he didn't get hit by a foul ball! Hit the jump for the video.

Soldier Returns Home, Surprises Family at Baseball Game [VIDEO]

We've enjoyed a lot of foul ball videos lately, but none like the one you're about to see.

We've seen a dad that managed to hold on to his kid, one that (oops!) dropped his kid, a selfless kid that gave up a ball, a sweet kid that got a bit emotional, a pouty kid, and even George Bush dodging a foul ball.

This video is different. Ruby and Gracie Weichman got quite a surprise the other night at a minor league baseball game. The 4-year-old twins, and their mother Abby were chosen by the Spokane Review to participate in its newspaper toss before the game. The surprise came when the girls' father, Air Force Sergent Chris Weichman, emerged from the Spokane Indians' dugout after just returning from this third tour of duty in Afghanistan!

You may need to grab some Kleenex when you hit the jump and watch this video!

Worst Call in Baseball? You be the Judge [VIDEO]

It's being referred to as  the worst call in baseball. After 19 innings, the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3 Tuesday night. But was umpire Jerry Meals just tired? Had he simply had enough, and wanted this six-hour contest to end? Or was this simply a bad call at home plate?

Hit the jump to watch the video. This game-ending call appears to me to be even worse than the bad call made by Jim Joyce last June, when Detroit Tigers' pitcher Armando Galarraga was robbed of his perfect game.

Was he really safe? You make the call!

Selfless Boy Does the Right Thing – Returns Ball to Upset Fan [VIDEO]

Foul balls have been big news lately. The pouting kid at the Giants game got to take one home. The man that almost fell to his death at the Home Run Derby made it out alive.

Now Ian, a young Arizona Diamondbacks fan, did the right thing and handed off a ball to Nicholas. But Nicholas is a Brewers fan! If you don't think this is sweet, there just may be something wrong with you.

And did anyone notice the hat young Ian is wearing?
