With the San Francisco Giants being the first team since 1986 to successfully protest a game, we decided to take a look back at some of the past protested games upheld by the MLB. Here’s five times MLB game protests have been upheld:
On Dinger, on Lou Seal, on Phillie Phanatic! Major League Baseball has captured the imagination of the world with their compelling (and sometimes terrifying) costumed mascots. Here are just some of the best!
In honor of Joe Mikulik’s ridiculous rant here are five of the most epic manager meltdowns in baseball history.
Trevor May was better Monday night, but it wasn’t enough for the Minnesota Twins. In his second career start — and third overall appearance — May pitched into the fifth inning before control problems resurfaced and the Twins lost 6-4 to the Kansas City Royals.
Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Josh Willingham homered, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 12-6 on Sunday for their 20th win in their last 25 games.
Phil Hughes threw seven sharp innings, Kurt Suzuki hit his third homer of the season and the Minnesota Twins beat first-place Kansas City 4-1 on Saturday night to snap the Royals’ three-game winning streak. Hughes (13-8) allowed one run, seven hits and struck out six to outlast hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura (9-9), who threw six innings of one-hit ball before the Twins broke through in the seventh.
Joe Mauer had two hits in his return from the disabled list, including a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning, to help the Minnesota Twins to a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
The Royals bolstered their offense Monday by acquiring outfielder Josh Willingham from the Minnesota Twins, a move the long-suffering franchise hopes will help them end a playoff drought that stretches back nearly three decades.

Leave it to a pair of former Oakland Athletics to end one of the worst skids the Minnesota Twins have ever had against another club. Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking double and Josh Willingham added two-run homer in the eighth inning, and the Twins snapped a 12-game losing streak to Oakland by beating the A’s 6-1 on Sunday.
For six innings Friday night, the Minnesota Twins managed only one hit and sent the minimum to the plate against Scott Kazmir. They made things interesting in the seventh once it was all but too late in a 6-5 loss to the Oakland Athletics, Minnesota’s 11th straight in this suddenly lopsided series.
With the 2014 Little League World Series beginning next week, let’s take a look at some famous athletes and alumni who once played in the LLWS in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
