Baseball

Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players who take turns batting and fielding.The offense attempts to score runs by hitting a ball thrown by the pitcher with a bat and moving counter-clockwise around a series of four bases: first, second, third and home plate. A run is scored when the runner advances around the bases and returns to home plate.Players on the batting team take turns hitting against the pitcher of the fielding team, which tries to prevent runs by getting hitters out in any of several ways. A player on the batting team can stop at any of the bases and later advance on a teammate's hit or other means.

    • Lots of wine books, not very many good ones

      As the author of two tomes on California wine, I know full well how short the lifespan is of a book. They come and go with the regularity of coastal fog, drifting in and out of existence. Some, because of the peculiarities of the media ritual of book reviewing, are more persistent than others. For example, anything Eric Asimov reviews and raves about can be counted to have a l ...

    • Sundays Are For Sebastian—#78

      Sebastian is my six-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people. Even though Sebastian is only six, he has shown an interest in sports and a competitive drive that are still somewhat foreign to his mother and older brother: Sebastian: “Mommy, how did you and Daddy meet? ...

And Pete fulfills the knowledgeable sales clerk standard. He knows his poop. If you know yours then you will find something unusual. If you do not then ask him to recommend something around $15. Once upon…

We do not drink as much of it as we used to—prices for Champagne being what they are these days, but we keep some around for occasions like tonight when the local baseball team does something extraordinary like winning the World Series. I suppose in my hearts of hearts I do feel a twinge of guilt that I do not always drink…

  • The personal touch: Talking about wine

    … of guys talking through their hats. But these guys love baseball, they live it and study it and thrive on it, and so their conversations are worth overhearing (assuming you like baseball). Same with wine. Put two of us together who live, love and thrive on wine, and you’re gonna get a gabfest. To me here’s really no difference talking about wine…

And, no, I don’t know what authenticity or typicity taste like as far as 130 year-old tawny Ports are concerned. ***** My professional accomplice – I still haven’t come up with a nickname for her that really works – has asked me a few times what sort of wine I really like. I initially thought this an odd question: wasn’t…

    …, Tapatio was a rumor, here. It wasn’t exported and the Mexicans seemed to be having a lot of fun with it and not sharing. Now, it’s here and…lucky us. Tapatio is a sort of “break the mold” Blanco. It shows aggressive notes of licorice, lemongrass, white pepper, burnt sugar, hay, vanilla, faint mintiness, and a lovely, almost smoky vegetal suggestion…

A well-stocked wine lover’s cellar only needs a cheap waiter’s corkscrew, a K-Mart decanter, and logo wine glasses from that cheesy Temecula winery where you’re a club member. And for God’s sake, don’t buy a stupid aerator to pour the wine through. You might as well wear a bowtie that lights up, you’ll look more…

The wine itself is the most important investment, but to care properly for the wine, especially bottles that you want to age, you will need long-term wine storage. If you have…

  • Why young wine drinkers should know about the classics

    … wine drinkers should know about the classics because people who know about the classics say they should. Now, that sounds tautological and elitist, and I suppose it is. But you can’t know where you are without knowing where you’ve come from, and people who know where they’ve come from know that, and are best listened to. Baseball fans need to know…

We sat down and I immediately liked Doug for several reasons: First, he has countless stories about wine, baseball, parenting–you name it. Second, getting Doug…
