Ken Jacobi commented on Ken Jacobi's blog post Yanks are being spiteful
"Appreciate the posts... I get what you are saying but I just don't like it. I don't see why with a 40 man roster you can't play him sporadically for the next two months. Fans are forgiving and no one likes Arod lying about the…"

"The other thing to keep in mind is that if the Yankees play ARod and he hits HR #700, they would owe him a $6 million bonus. We can speculate all we want about this but the bonus is a big factor in his sitting the bench. "

Bill Stanton commented on Ken Jacobi's blog post Yanks are being spiteful
"I'm surprised at the sympathy from fans towards ARod this week. My understanding is that this is Girardi's decision to keep him on the bench. At this point the Yanks don't seem to care about HR #700 as there is no marketing value in…"

Ken Jacobi commented on Ken Jacobi's blog post Yanks are being spiteful
"I feel like the Yanks are really singling him out. Look at McCann and some of the other guys struggling... do we really need to make sure they get 100 more ABs this season?  There is still 2 months left.. they could have played him 4 times per…"

Bill Stanton commented on Ken Jacobi's blog post Yanks are being spiteful
"No. Yanks need to move on. They made a huge investment in ARod and while they won the 09 WS, this investment didn't work out that well. This season they aren't a contender and keeping him on the roster only takes away at bats for young…"

Ken Jacobi commented on Kyle Nelson's blog post Batting tees: the good, the bad, and the ugly
"t drills are so important! It is not something to take lightly. I spent hours on the tee, especially at college when I couldn't find a pitcher to help. It created the proper fundamentals in my swing and helped me tremendously.  My only tip…"

Ken Jacobi commented on Bill Stanton's blog post Coaching From The Stands Is Confusing For Athletes
"I am sure it is tempting to give just a "little piece of advice." Parents especially, put so much effort, time and money into their kids that they want to urge them to success no matter what. The best approach is, just like the…"

More About Me:
Hi, my name is Ken Jacobi. I am currently 24 years old and reside in Stamford, CT. Now almost 2 years removed from the college baseball game I have attempted in this book to share my insider's view into the world of college baseball. When I began to reflect on my four years at Binghamton University, I realized that I had a very important story to share. It seems that every year I read great stories about the top college and professional athletes who have had super-successful seasons/ careers. Every blog has the top 100 list of some category, every book is about the guy who signed for a million dollars and every news clip talks of how Joe Schmo has set a new record. But the fact is that 99.9% of the athletes (and non-athletes) never make any national stories. Most have to simply fight and battle every day just to be their own success story.... This book is my "success story". Over the course of 300+ pages I describe the full college experience, from getting recruited, to showing up for my first class in the fall, to the "big game", and finally to saying goodbye to baseball. Throughout it all, I recount my happy times, I share my low points, and I reveal my most vulnerable of times as well. I hope you enjoy this story, but more importantly I hope you are able to gain something by reading about my college experience and how I learned to adjust by "Going with the Pitch".

This website is one of the best around to connect with athletes. I am from Lebanon,VA and I am an upcoming senior at Lebanon High School. As you know, this summer is very important to get exposure and have coaches watching you. I play on as traveling team out of Blountville,TN and we play in some showcase tournaments while others are less exposure. I have a few coaches looking at me so hopefully I can make a good impression. What position did you play at Binghamton? I had a penpal who played basketball at Albany University and I kept up with the American East a lot when he played.
