Oakland A’s Socks Girl


White Cleat Beat is online & BBST is taking a short vacation!

Change can be a good thing! BBST is taking a vacation! Hey all! I’m sure that you’ve noticed that I have written anything new in the last few weeks, perhaps longer. I’m not sure anyone really cares but I’m putting my blog on vacation indefinitely but I am hoping to have it back up and running by the beginning of spring training 2017. Why would I do such a thing? It’s a good question. In November, to be honest I was just a bit burnt out so I slacked on my blog to keep a little bit of my sanity […]

Socks Girl’s seven takeaways for MLB week 5

Seven takeaways from week 5 Each week on Monday (I figure I  can handle a small commitment to my blog, right?) I’ve been giving  you a quick wrap up of seven important things that happened over the past week in MLB, and even some MiLB,  plays, events, matchups or whatever it was I would have loved to do an entire post on but didn’t have the time. Because let’s face it, there are 30 teams and no one person can cover them all or keep track of everything. I have a hard enough time covering the A’s at for FanRag […]


Happy 3rd Birthday BBST!! 6

Happy Birthday BBST! Est. May 9, 2013 I’ll keep this short because I doubt anyone will read more than the title. LOL! BBST has been good to me over the past three years and it allows me to see how far I’ve come, after taking  an eight-year hiatus from writing – much of well – anything after college (there were more lucrative jobs out there … it is what it is!).  My first few months of posts are embarrassingly awful. I had no idea how to blog and hadn’t written in so long so they turned out to be pretty […]

Happy Birthday BBST

Bartolo Colon, homer, dh

Bartolo Colon takes James Shields deep for first career home run!

Bartolo Colon hits first career home run!! #TEAMBARTOLO BABY!!! WOOOO!!!   Your browser does not support iframes. My life is seriously complete! I could die (after I finish writing this of course!) and be completely happy! My main man in baseball (and most of you know this from reading my blog or following me on Twitter or Facebook), actually probably on the entire planet, is Bartolo Colon!  I’ll admit I wasn’t a fan until the lovable, always happy pitcher became a member of the Oakland Athletics in 2012. In 2013, and I still hold this to be true, I was […]


Socks Girl’s seven takeaways from MLB week 3

Seven takeaways from MLB week 3 So, this is NEW! – well it’s the second time I’ve done this so I’m leaving the introduction for the first couple of weeks.

Socks Girl’s seven takeaways from MLB week 2

New Weekly Column: Socks Girl’s seven takeaways of the week! So, this is new! Each week on Monday (I figure I  can handle a small commitment to my blog, right?) I’m going to do a quick wrap up of the important things that have happened in MLB, and even some MiLB, events or matchups or whatever it was I would have loved to do an entire post on.

With the A’s rich history, which moment was truly the luckiest?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! The A’s rich history is filled with so many historic moments but which one was truly the luckiest? In honor of St. Patrick’s Day Mike Petriello of MLB.com wrote about each franchise’s luckiest moments. For the Oakland Athletics, he definitely found one. In 1966 the then-Kansas City A’s had the second overall pick in the draft. With the No. 1 pick, the New York Mets chose a catcher named Steve Chilcott, who ended up injuring his shoulder in the minor leagues and never even made it to the majors. The Athletics had to settle for a […]

Gonna be MIA for a minute … so don’t forget about me! 4

I just moved. No, not my blog … It’s still right here at bbstmlb.com! But I moved from the Bay Area up to a small town in the mountains and I will not have full internet service until Wednesday! Yikes! I mean, that’s a lot of baseball Im going to miss and a lot of MLB news! In fact, I’ve already missed that closer Sean Doolittle has finally been activated and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!! So please excuse my approximately – oh say, five day absence. I haven’t given up on BBST and yes, I still work […]


A Tweet, the A’s, socks and this blog …. 1

@OakAsSocksGrl AND they took your pose!! MT”@Athletics Argyle Socks giveaway this Sunday http://t.co/GkizctLjudpic.twitter.com/lmeih6pGnn“ — Manuel Salazar (@msalazar408) April 11, 2015 I wrote a different post earlier … so sorry if you saw it, I was a bit harsher than I needed to be! I think the Tweet I recieved speaks for itself!  I’m always going to be a fan of the Athletics franchise from Philadelphia to Kansas City to Oakland and (HOPEFULLY NEVER!!) beyond! But I’m really kind of disappointed in the way the organization took my idea AND my pose …  … actually they took the two things I […]
