Everyone mark July 24-26 on your calendar, and tremble in fear

Or something like that. In Ken Davidoff's column today, the note came up that Gary Sheffield will play in his 52nd ballpark by season's end (provided he stay healthy), a record among current players.

Sheffield said that Minute Maid Park, in Houston, was his all-time favorite. "For some reason, I see the ball well there. I hit the ball well there. I like the atmosphere there."

He's not kidding. In nine games at the Astros' home, totaling 46 plate appearances, Sheffield has eight homers, a .587 on-base percentage and a 1.195 slugging percentage.
