Magical Snotrockets


The Madison Bumgarner Vintage Snotrocket Tour continues to chug along, gathering steam and mucus. Today it made a late summer stop in St. Louis circa 2010 and I got to witness a San Francisco Giants win against the Cardinals but more importantly I saw snotrockets.

Here are Madison Bumgarner’s snotrocket totals and other vital statistics for Friday, August 20, 2010 on the road vs. the St. Louis Cardinals:


  • W, 7.0 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR, 7 SNR (snotrockets): 0 vs. lefties, 2 vs. righties, 5 other. 1 on-base SNR.
  • Madison Bumgarner’s most prolific inning was the 2nd in which he blew 4 snotrockets.
  • Bumgarner through 11 starts in 2010 had 112 snotrockets.


Let’s get things started with a shy snotrocket from the 2nd inning:


Before that one though I did witness an on-base snotrocket in the top of the 2nd, when Bumgarner reached 3rd base:


It’s so pretty:


Another shy snotrocket, this time from the 5th inning:


Fuzzy side view snotrocket from the 7th inning:


The Cardinals used some interesting graphics for their TV broadcast:


Getting to view all these vintage Bumgarner snotrockets has been fun but I also enjoy hearing various broadcasters discussing Bumgarner at the very beginning of his major league career, before all of his postseason excellence:


Player of this game and every game he’s in:


Madison Bumgarner’s next start after this one was a game at home against the Reds. I should be live tweeting that so see you on Twitter and of course here for all the exciting vintage Bumgarner snotrockets.
