Jose Canseco plans to travel the country trying to break home run records

The former MLB slugger is hopping in an RV for 10 weeks and traveling the U.S. and Canada for a “Home Run Tour” in which he’s trying to break the records for longest baseball and softball home runs.

As far as ideas go…this is one.  They’ve got a graphic and everything.

Conrad Gregor’s first home run of season caught by his dad

Gregor’s first home run of the season went to right-center and landed in the hands of a delighted guy. Though few knew it at the time, Gregor said after the game that his dad, Marty Gregor, was the one who caught the ball. Gregor’s parents drove five hours from Indiana to watch their son play this weekend. Aw.

Nice advance Father’s Day present.
