André Thornton, also known as “Thunder,” played first base and DH for the Cubs, Expos and Indians during his 14-year career.
In 1979, he received the Roberto Clemente Award, given to the player who best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.
In 1987, Thornton finished his career in Cleveland with 253 home runs and remains one of the most popular players in team history.
“Andy Thornton is as good a man as you’ll find on the face of the earth.”
- Bobby Bonds

Cooper Stadium, originally known as Red Bird Stadium, is located at 1155 W. Mound St. in Columbus, Ohio. It was built in 1932 as a ballpark for the Columbus Red Birds, the then farm team of the St. Louis Cardinals. The park was constructed using the same blue prints as Red Wing Stadium in Rochester, New York in 1929.
Kenesaw Mountain Landis, baseball’s first elected commissioner, proclaimed Red Bird Stadium as “the finest park in all of baseball” during opening day on June 3, 1932.
In 1977, the ballpark was renovated when baseball returned to Columbus after a six year absence, becoming the new home of The Columbus Clippers. Then, in 1984, the stadium was renamed in honor of Harold Cooper, the county commissioner who was responsible for keeping baseball in Columbus in the 1950s.
Though the Clippers no longer call it home, “The Coop” has welcomed many great ball players over the years, including Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Whitey Ford, Jim Palmer, Johnny Bench, Willie Stargell and Don Mattingly.
With a lineup that included Earle Combs, Mark Koenig, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Meusel, Tony Lazzeri, Joe Dugan and Pat Collins, the 1927 New York Yankees were collectively known as “Murderer’s Row”, a fearsome lineup that scored a total of 975 runs in 154 games.
After losing 21-1 in a July game against the Yanks, Washington Senators first baseman Joe Judge said, “Those fellows not only beat you but they tear your heart out. I wish the season was over.”
Arguably the greatest offensive lineup ever assembled in baseball, the 1927 Yankees would go on to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates in the World Series.
Jacoti Simmons (who unknowingly made an appearance on The Grip last year) is throwing a party in Columbus. Check it out!!!
Boombox Parade Party!
Cool!.. A what?
That’s the reaction I usually get when trying to explain this street performance to people.
The best way I can answer this question is with a couple of questions. Check ‘em out after the jump. (more…)
Before launching the Columbus T-shirt Co-op they will be featuring some of their favorites favorites in a gallery/fashion show. If you love vintage t-shirts, music, and good people, you’ll want to check out this event.
Columbus natives Fly Union releases Value Pack 5 on the world. Track 2 (We Out) has been in heavy rotation over the holiday weekend. Jerreau kills this track. Check it out below and click here to download #VP5.
L.e was one of the sleepers on last year’s Milk Bar 3-on-3 team that took down Team Grip. Not really mad though, we smashed W$ 11-1.
I was really surprised how good L’e first mixtape The Anti-Parachute Theory was. There are a number of tracks I still bang to this day. Check it out if you haven’t already.
I no longer have the luxury of being on the internet all day at work. Sucks, right? I’ve already got a few people guest blogging who pop up once or twice a month, but I’m looking for a few people to contribute on a regular basis. I still get a decent amount of traffic so why stop a good thing? Muscle Rob is moving to NY in the next 6 months so we’ll finally have an NY Office. (first order of business: hack into Weedsteeler NY offices)
The only “rule” is to keep things SFW. Looking for people to post about anything (music, food, funny stuff, interesting, etc.) but I would LOVE to get someone who actually wanted to WRITE about stuff. If you stuff sucks, I will probably start deleting it, but don’t be offended.
If you are interested shoot me an e-mail (link in the toolbar on the right) and we’ll try to work something out.
July 24th: DJ Holiday, OJ Da Juiceman, Shawty Lo, Waka Flocka, Gucci Mane in Columbus @ Vets Memorial
