Mlblogs has posted the top 50 leaders for the month of January, and yours truly finished in 15th place. I guess that’s to be expected, as many readers typically only follow ballhawk blogs during the MLB season. Hopefully, my daily postings leading up to opening day will reel some more readers in.
Here’s the top 40 of the 50: (40 because I couldn’t get all 50 to fit on my screen for a screen shot)

I think my goal for February will be to break into the top 10. In January 2011 I was 23rd on the list, and February 2011 I was 25th. So being in the top 10 would be a huge improvement.
Anyway, in other semi-baseball related news. Today is Olivia’s 6 month birthday, so we went shopping to see if we could get her any presents. I ran across a few baseball items.
Check out the hat rack at the WalMart in Delmont PA.
Do you see anything that catches your eye? Check it out:
If any of you Pittsburgh ballhawks needs a KC Royals hat, the Wal-Mart in Delmont has them for $7. It’s a must have as the Royals are set to visit PNC Park in June this year. I didn’t buy one as I already have two Kansas City Royals hats.
Also at WalMart, I couldn’t help myself. I bought another pack of 2012 Topps Cards.
I got two Pirates, Chase D’Arndaud and Jared Hughes
Ryan Braun and Chipper Jones were probably my two best overall players:
We also stopped in a dollar store, and I froze when I walked past this display:
I picked up a pack of 20 random cards for $1 just for the heck of it.
Here’s what I got:
There’s only 61 more days until Opening Day, 14 days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training, and 1 more day to win this Matt Wieters shirt.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the comments and my twitter feed and compiling the list of candidates for the shirt. I have 43 entries so far. Zac Weiss has posted and retweeted 10 times, meaning he has about a 1 in 4 chance. Also I have Joey Orr down for 7 entries in the drawing. Remember, to enter all you have to do is leave a comment and/or retweet my blog entry each day. I’ll throw all of the names into a (Baltimore Orioles) hat tomorrow and let Olivia pick the winner out.
