Atlanta's Turner Field Is Dying -- And American Sanity Is Dying With It
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I'm know I'm going to sound like an old man again, but I can remember 1997 like it was yesterday. I can almost taste it, smell it -- the time when a couple of Yankee kids named Jeter and Rivera ruled the baseball world, when Hillary Clinton was strolling the corridors of the White House, and when the Dow hit the Olympian heights of 8,000. It seemed like those times would never end, but now it's 16 long years later (that's not a typo... 1-6!) and time continues to march inexorably forward. I felt a pang of nostalgia when I read today that another relic of that bygone era is biting the dust, that the Atlanta Braves are finally (finally!) saying goodbye to historic Turner Field, ending its more than decade-and-a-half run and heading for the greener pastures of suburban Cobb County. Goodbye to the ballpark where the ghosts of John Rocker and David Justice still lurk, its old-timey giant "Eat Mor Chickin'" Chick-fil-A cow, the "Tomahawk Chop" (yes, people weren't as advanced on matters of ...

Halle Berry Is Married!
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Congrats go out to Mrs. Martinez! Halle Berry married her fiance Olivier Martinez on Saturday (July 13) at Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, Us Weekly confirms. According to reports, the ceremony took place in a small chateau, where, in accordance with French law, a civil union was held at 4 p.m., followed by a religious ceremony at 5:30 p.m. at the chapel in the village. "White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet because it was a show business wedding," a local tells Us Weekly of the nuptials. "But generally it was pretty down-to-earth." People reports that 60 guests, mostly close friends, were in attendance including Martinez's mother Rosemarie and brother Vincent. Dinner was held under an arbor, and there was a fireworks display. This is the third marriage for Berry, who was previously wed to baseball player David Justice (from 1993 to 1997) and to R&B singer Eric Benet (from 2001 to 2005). She started dating Canadian model, Gabriel A ...

Dr. Sam Von Reiche: What Makes Us Love Celebrity Gossip
Huffington Post - about 4 years
OK, so I admit it. I read US Weekly and People -- and not just when I'm waiting in the checkout line. Halle Berry and her latest relationship drama were among the latest to draw my attention; someone is clearly lying about who started the brawl, and personally I think Gabriel Aubry was the victim there. In fact, it appeared to be a fight between his pretty face and Olivier Martinez's fist. In case you haven't seen the pictures of Aubry's bruises, the fist clearly won. Along with millions of my fellow celebrity gossip mongers, I have been transfixed as Berry has moved from one dysfunctional romance to the next for over a decade. Presumably, these poor choices have something to do with her absent and abusive father Jerome, from whom Berry was estranged all of her adult life. First, major leaguer husband David Justice was rumored to have physicaly abused Berry. Next, she was married to musician Eric Benét who cheated on her dozens of times, owing to what appeared to be sex ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of David Justice
    FORTIES
  • 2008
    Age 41
    Prior to the 2008 season, the YES Network announced that Justice would not appear on air during that season, but would contribute articles to the network's website.
    More Details Hide Details Justice stated that this change was not in response to his inclusion in the Mitchell report, but was due to the destruction of his California home by a wildfire and the recent passing of his mother. Justice never returned to the network. Justice has also appeared on a 1992 episode of The Young and the Restless. He was played by Stephen Bishop in Moneyball, the film adaptation of the best-selling Michael Lewis book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game about the Oakland Athletics baseball team and its general manager, Billy Beane. Justice graduated from Covington Latin School in 1982.
    Justice was eligible for the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008, however he received only one vote, preventing him from being named on future ballots.
    More Details Hide Details The timing of the vote may have adversely affected his candidacy, as it was held shortly after the release of the Mitchell Report.
  • 2007
    Age 40
    In an interview for the Mitchell Report, released December 13, 2007, Justice denied using performance-enhancing substances, but was willing to report the names of individuals he suspected, though he claimed to have no direct knowledge of any other player's steroid use.
    More Details Hide Details He also claims to have never been warned of the side effects of steroids or explicitly told steroids were a banned substance. The Mitchell Report states that in a later interview, former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski claimed to have sold Justice human growth hormone when Justice was with the Yankees after the 2000 World Series. Justice has called the allegation "a bald-faced lie" and says that he has never met Radomski. Justice has claimed that his only involvement with performance-enhancing drugs was a discussion about HGH in 2000 with Brian McNamee, then the New York Yankees' strength coach. Justice, who had shoulder problems, thought that HGH might aid in his recovery. Justice stated that after the discussion, he went to his locker and found a bag containing HGH and several injection needles; Justice claimed that he was unwilling to inject himself and never used any of it. Justice further stated in the interviews that all claims in the Mitchell Report concerning his alleged purchase and use of any performance drugs were false and encouraged all players whose names appear in the report, especially Roger Clemens, to publicly deny any claims made by the Mitchell Report if they are untrue.
    In March 2007, it was announced that David Justice would be inducted into the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame.
    More Details Hide Details He was the first member of any of the Braves' fourteen consecutive division title teams (1991–2005, excluding the strike-shortened season in 1994) to be inducted in the Braves Hall of Fame. The induction took place on August 17, 2007. Numerous ex-Braves players and coaches were in attendance and tribute videos from Braves legend Hank Aaron and former owner Ted Turner were shown. Prior to that evening's game Justice was presented with a portrait by sports artist Bart Forbes during an on-field ceremony.
  • THIRTIES
  • 2002
    Age 35
    He played a final season on an Oakland team which reached the playoffs in 2002 and was named the American League Player of the Week for the first week of the season.
    More Details Hide Details His addition to Oakland was referred to as an 'experiment' by A's assistant GM Paul DePodesta. The experiment was to evaluate whether hitters retained their ability to get on base as they got older (kept their batter's eye). His .376 OBP and BB/K ratio of greater than 1:1 seemed to prove that correct. Justice finished his career as a .279 hitter, with a .378 OBP and .500 slugging percentage, 305 home runs, 903 walks and 1017 RBI in 1610 games. From 1991 to his last season in 2002, Justice's teams made the postseason every year (with the exception of the strike-shortened 1994 season). Of those times, he made the World Series six times, winning twice. He is in the top ten in a number of career postseason categories, such as at-bats, games played, hits, and home runs.
  • 2001
    Age 34
    As a result of persistent groin injury, Justice saw his production slide considerably in 2001, and he was traded to the New York Mets on December 7, 2001 for 3B Robin Ventura.
    More Details Hide Details Mets GM Steve Phillips then sent him to the Oakland Athletics on December 14 for LHP Mark Guthrie and RHP Tyler Yates.
    He married Rebecca Villalobos on 8 February 2001.
    More Details Hide Details Villalobos is CEO of Exotic Spices Calendars. They have two children together: son Dionisio (born June 7, 2002) and daughter Raquel (born 2004).
  • 2000
    Age 33
    In return, Justice caught fire down the stretch and won the 2000 AL Championship Series MVP Award en route to his second world championship.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1998
    Age 31
    He posted solid numbers in 1998 and 1999 with the Cleveland Indians before his big year in 2000.
    More Details Hide Details That season, he hit a combined .286 with a .377 OBP and .584 slugging average, and slugged 41 home runs with 118 RBIs. On June 28, 2000, Yankees GM Brian Cashman finalized a trade with Indians GM John Hart, sending Jake Westbrook, Zach Day and Ricky Ledée to Cleveland for Justice. The Yankees, who were unable to lure Sammy Sosa or Juan Gonzalez from their respective teams, looked to Justice as a legitimate longball threat.
  • 1997
    Age 30
    Justice proved right away that he had many good years left. He hit .329 with a .418 OBP and .596 slugging average in 1997, with 33 home runs, while making another World Series appearance.
    More Details Hide Details
  • TWENTIES
  • 1995
    Age 28
    When baseball returned in 1995, Justice helped his Braves to the World Series against the Cleveland Indians.
    More Details Hide Details He drew attention (and boos) when he criticized Atlanta fans for the level of support they were providing the team. Justice ended up a hero, however, when his crucial home run in Game 6 provided the only run in a 1–0 game that clinched the championship. In May 1996, a swing and miss in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates caused a season-ending shoulder separation. It would prove to be Justice's last at bat as a Brave, as he was traded during the final week of Spring training the following year. On ESPN, Justice stated, "I love the Braves, so when president John Schuerholz looked me in my face and told me 'I'd bet my house and my family that you won't be traded' that's good enough confidence for me coming from a General Manager, and then out of nowhere, one week later I'm gone."
  • 1994
    Age 27
    Justice was batting .313 with a .427 on-base percentage and .531 slugging average when the strike ended play in 1994.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1992
    Age 25
    On December 31, 1992 Justice married film actress Halle Berry. The couple resided in Sandy Springs, Georgia. They separated on February 22, 1996 and divorced on June 24, 1997.
    More Details Hide Details The marriage ended acrimoniously, with Berry seeking a restraining order against Justice. His first son David, Jr. (b. 27 December 1999) is with ex-girlfriend, Nicole Foster.
    After seeing his production slide slightly in 1992, Justice enjoyed a solid 1993 season.
    More Details Hide Details He clubbed 40 home runs and 120 RBIs with 78 walks, finishing third in MVP voting behind Barry Bonds and Lenny Dykstra.
  • 1991
    Age 24
    In 1991, the upstart Braves surged to the top of their division and Justice was leading the National League in runs batted in when he was sidelined by a nagging back injury in June.
    More Details Hide Details He finished with 87 runs batted in despite the injury and played in his first World Series.
  • 1990
    Age 23
    Justice promptly went on an offensive tear during the second half of the 1990 season, finishing with 28 home runs, which helped him claim the National League's Rookie of the Year Award.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1989
    Age 22
    Justice made his major league debut in May 1989, playing for the last-place Atlanta Braves.
