Bock is Back

By now loyal readers of this blog (all baker's dozen of ya) know that we here at More Hardball enjoy a pint of adult beverage every once in awhile. Recently I got my lips on a tasty frothy glass of Yuengling Bock. This is the first year Yuengling, America's oldest brewery, has released it's copper colored seasonal in bottles in about 30 years. Bock is a strong dark lager that is usually considered a Christmas, Easter, or Lent beer. As a Central PA native and strong supporter of Vitamin Y, I am thankful Yuengling brought back Bock. They went with the original artwork too, which is both classy and awesome.

Now let's see what MLB has to offer in the way of Bock...

*Randy Bockus pitched in the 1980's for the Giants and Tigers amassing 2 career victories and a 4.23 ERA.

*Bock Baker pitched all of one season back in 1901, walking 12 batters in 14 innings while only striking out one...suck!

*Eddie Bockman played in the 1940's for the Yankees, Pirates, and Indians as a middle infielder, never really amounting to much.

Thank goodness Yuengling's Bock is better than MLB's!
