Hellickson in The Show

Maybe I’ve gone astray blogging lately about rubber ducks, concerts, Boy Scouts and beer. Let’s get back to basics…baseball!

Jeremy Hellickson – most recently of the Durham Bulls – made his second Major League start Tuesday for the Rays. At Detroit, he gave up a mere three hits…and struck out seven…without walking one batter…during his seven innings on the mound. The Rays beat the Tigers 8-0.

A huge compliment from the Detroit dugout:
“For a kid who has only made two starts, he knows how to pitch. He’s in the majors to stay.” Johnny Damon

Hellickson, of course, has been a huge factor in the Bulls’ successful 2010 season…and he’s not quickly forgotten around the DBAP. You may want to scarf up a memento before your only recourse is an eBay auction.

If you spend $75.00 in our Ballpark Corner store, you receive a collector’s bonus: a Jeremy Hellickson bobble head.

And Jeremy signed a box of photos on his way to the airport. You can own one for $10.00 while supplies last.

In the memorabilia biz, these are Blue Chip investments!
