Baseball Desktops

Not sure if anyone is into baseball, but i'll ask anyways. Does anyone have a good source for baseball desktops (ballparks or players).

My team is the Astros (always has been, always will be...and American League baseball sucks...and I live in Boston now!)

Can't speak for other teams, but the 'Stros usually have wallpapers of individual players at the official site. They're really hokey looking. I used to have the entire starting lineup cycling through every minute in the proper batting order. I am convinced that it was this desktop that allowed the Astros to go on their incredible run last season. Some folks say it was the bullpen gelling and the addition of Beltran and Oswalt pitching healthy--I think it was the desktop.

THE POINT: Perhaps check your team's website...

Don't know if these would be of any interest to you, but there are a couple of baseball desktops over at mandolux...

Here and here.

You could upload them to an image hosting site, or would you be willing to email me some of them to allstar0093924@yahoo.com.

Except that it means you're watching the Tigers!

J/K, any seat at an MLB game is fine by me. I hope I can get my hands on some cheap Sox tickets this year even though I'm not a huge fan of the Red Sox (though, I do like Curt Schilling), and, more generally, don't really care for the AL. (Growing up in Houston you need to have a loyalty to the NL, that way you experience what it's like to win it all sometimes...)

give me a few weeks. i'll head over to camden yards one of these days, and get some shots of the stadium/statues/old camden station. if i get ambitious, i'll take the screen off my windows and take a shot of the stadium from my bedroom.
