MLB’s 404 pages are a delight

Every MLB team page is, sadly, part of a homogenized web platform for the league. Gone are the particular flavors the old individual websites offered.

But a hidden cookie in the MLB online universe more than makes up for it. Get to a 404 page, like this obsolete listing of White Sox executives, and keep clicking refresh.

Here lies the home run off Jose Canseco’s head, Tommy Lasorda duffing the Phillie Phanatic, and various other players colliding and thrown balls finding a teammate’s face. Yeah, some of the gifs pop up more than others, but compared to your more generic fair 404 pages it’s a bit of light relief stashed in the repetitive MLB web landscape.

Head over and enjoy them for a few minutes. You’re welcome.
