MLB Tailgate News

Opening day 2014 saw a range of surprises and not so surprises. Most teams elected to have their best starting pitcher in for that day, while some teams, like the unfortunate Rangers were forced to use a different pitcher due to injury. In the Rangers' case, their ace, Yu Darvish, was on the 15 day DL for back issues. He was previously scheduled to start opening day. In his place was reliever turned starting pitcher Tanner Scheppers. Somewhat predictably, the Rangers' afternoon did not go as they'd hoped. Between Scheppers and the Rangers pen, they allowed 14 runs to the Phillies in an eventual 14-10 loss. The Rangers did recover in the next two games of the series as they won both in walk-off fashion.

Elsewhere in the AL West, the suddenly surprising Mariners shellacked the LA Angels 10-3 with their ace, Felix Hernandez on the mound. The Mariners would go on to sweep the Angels in the next two games of the week, partially due to the sudden emergence of Justin Smoak as a hitter. The Mariners take on another AL West rival in the Oakland A's next.

The NL West SF Giants also put their ace on the mound for opening day against the Arizona Diamondbacks, in the form of Madison Bumgarner. However, he left the game after four innings and four unearned runs. The Giants struggled considerably in the first half of the game, down 7-3 by the sixth inning. They rallied in the end, thanks in part to catcher Buster Posey's two run homerun in the 9th. The Giants won 9-8 and would go on to lose the next game, before winning the third. The fourth game, which you can catch on MLB Extra Innings DirecTV packages if you’re not in the New York area, is set to showcase the Giants' former ace in Tim Lincecum. After an uneven starting role the previous year, baseball fans and analysts will be watching closely to see if he returns to form.

Meanwhile, in the NL East, the Mets became the target of sports radio controversy when their second baseman Daniel Murphy took three days of paternity leave to start the season. Including missing opening day. The Mets lost the opening day game to the Washington Nationals. However, that gave Nationals manager Matt Williams his first win as a major league manager. Daniel Murphy eventually took to the airwaves on Thursday after the Mets lost again on Wednesday to address criticism of his decision.

In the AL East, the rival Red Sox and Orioles faced off in an opening series. The Orioles started Chris Tillman on the mound and he pitched five innings and allowed one run before being relieved by Zach Britton. However, the real highlight was new acquisition Nelson Cruz, formerly of the Texas Rangers and formerly suspended for steroid use. Cruz joined Chris Davis as a home run threat and immediately delivered with a tie-breaking blast in the seventh inning. The O's had Tuesday off, but lost the Wednesday game against the Sox 6-2.

In the NL Central, the Reds and Cardinals resumed their rivalry with a game that stayed blank until Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina hit a solo home run in the seventh inning. That turned out to be the winning run as neither team scored again. Previously, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto tossed seven innings of no run baseball, each only allowing three hits. The Molina home run effectively ended Cueto's night along with the deadlocked zeros.

Skip's Garage is happy to bring you the latest and greatest on opening week in the the MLB in order to prep everyone for baseball tailgate season! You support your favorite team this season with an officially licensed MLB tailgate product here!

MLB Tailgate Season is Coming!

That time is approaching once again for baseball fans as the dreary winter months finally wind down and and anticipation builds for another season of Major League Baseball - the pros are already deep into Spring training, and it won’t be long before opening day later this March. This is a particularly exciting pre-game season, with all the recent news about some of the biggest stars in MLB...

For one thing, New York Yankee’s veteran Derek Jeter recently announced that he will be retiring from Major League Baseball after this season. Jeter’s final season will be his 19th as starting shortstop for the Yankees. “I took a lot of time thinking about this,” Jeter told the press during a “Q and A” session at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa last week, and went on to stress that it was the pain he felt daily because of his ankle injury. Jeter stressed, however, that he still has a full season up ahead of him. He plans on playing the full year, and he’ll be wrapping up a highly celebrated run, and leaving baseball with over 3,300 hits and thirteen all-star game appearances to his credit.

And as one star prepares to hang it up, another star is starting to take stride in Washington, D.C. There has been considerable hype surrounding the young Stephen Strasburg, who first garnered national attention while still a college athlete pitching for the San Diego State Aztecs. He won the bronze medal for the United States in 2008 Summer Olympics, which further catapulted him towards super-star status. When he graduated from, he was highly sought after by the major leagues and arrived on the Nationals with expectations higher than the Washington Monument. Although he hit some bumps in his professional career early on, injuring the elbow of his pitching arm during his first professional season with the Nationals, he’s reportedly back in top form now, and there is talk of an All Star or even Cy Young-worthy season in 2014.

Speaking of bouncing back from injuries, fans of the Los Angeles Angels are excited to see Albert Pujols finally return to the diamond this season. Pujols encountered several setbacks last year because of a foot injury, and turned in a campaign full of all-time low performances: he scored only 17 home runs, played in only 99 games, and had a batting average of only .258. Consider that this is the same Albert Pujols who won the National League’s “Rookie of the Year Award” his first year with the Cardinals, and it’s obvious that for him that was a poor showing. Pujols insists that he’s going to pace himself this season, and he won’t strain to go beyond the scope of what he can do without hurting himself, for fear that he would ultimately have to spend even more time off the field, so let’s hope he sticks to that approach.

For those of us eager to spend time near the field again as the season gets into gear, tailgating is the way to go, so you might consider getting some officially licensed party gear to help support your favorite team. Yankees fans will no doubt love the tailgate tables with their logo, great for snacks, or for beer pong. Mean while Strasburg fans down in DC can make use of the Washington Nationals plastic tailgate toss, which comes complete with eight bean-bags and fold-in legs. Angels fans can celebrate Pujols gallant return to form with the Angels tailgate table or cornhole game - both excellent for your next tailgate party. You can get all of your official gear for this MLB season here.

But if tailgating before a game and actually hanging out in the bleachers isn’t an option, DirecTV’s Extra Innings baseball package (details on their homepage) is the best way to catch all the MLB action you could possibly want, including up to 80 games a week that wouldn’t normally be shown in your home market. With that option, it might be more tempting to just set up a TV next to the beer pong table in the garage, and letting the games begin!

Redsox vs. Yankees Beer Pong Table with Pre-Drilled Holes!



Skip’s Garage has a wide range of party supplies ranging from beer pong tables to mosaic pool mats. Skip’s is by far one of the top of the line places to shop for all of your party and tailgating needs. With their products there is no way not enjoy yourself!
One of my personal favorites is the 8ft Redsox vs. Yankees beer pong table with pre-drilled, recessed cup holes. I’ve seen many other tables that are baseball themed, but none like this particular one. Most have a simple, bland design with a baseball diamond on each side. This table however, has a great graphic display of both the Sox and Yanks baseball caps. It features each teams colors and city names on opposing sides and a nice curved baseball stitching. That’s not all! Underneath all of this you can even see each team’s jersey design. 
Not only does this table have an outstanding artistic display but it also exhibits a great amount of team spirit and even demonstrates the well-known rivalry between the two teams! Anyone who is a fan of baseball or either of these teams could appreciate this tables elegant design.
This beer pong table doesn’t just look good, it’s also incredibly durable, so you know you won’t be wasting money on an exciting new party accessory that’s going to break in the middle of the game. This table also has holes pre-drilled in it for each cup, including the rinse cup. Anyone who has ever played beer pong has experienced that unwanted spill when the ball tips the rim of a cup and knocks it over. With this table, that will not be a concern any more! These holes are drilled to fit most standard cups, holding them perfectly upright and sturdy.  This also ensures that each team gets a perfect rack at all times. There won’t be any more senseless bickering about centering the cups or rims not touching.
One of the great features of this item is that is regulation length, 8ft long by 2ft wide and 30 inches off the ground. The top is layered with a sturdy laminate for proper protection and that impeccable bounce that each player wants. It even folds up for storage into a 2ft by 2ft briefcase that only weighs 23 pounds. It also comes with a carrying handle for easy transportation. This outstanding beer pong table is the perfect addition for every party and will never disappoint! Check it out here!
