  1. Who am I?

    I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country. I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed. Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...

  5. Negative RD, Winning record 2 years in a row?

    The Yankees are 80-75 with a minus 31 run differential. If they win 2 more games they are assured of a winning record on the season. Last year they were 85-77 with a negative 21 run differential. When is the last time a team had negative run differential 2 years in a row, but had a winning record both years?

  6. How many hits in a 9 inning game - and still not score a run?

    Probably an easy one for this crowd. I coached amateur ball for many years and always asked the players this question. No one ever got it.

  7. Perfect Game Question

    Would it still be considered a perfect game if no runners reached base, however there was an error where say the first baseman drops a pop up in foul ground to extend an at bat?

  9. Most Consecutive Seasons With The Same Record

    After his loss today, David Huff is 3-1. He was 3-1 in 2012 and 2013, so he has a chance at having the same record for three consecutive years. What pitchers have had the same record for the most consecutive years? I'm not making a minimum number of decisions or innings, but the record cannot be 0-0.

  11. Batter hits the ball twice with bat--what's the rule

    In today's Yankee game, Brendan Ryan hit the ball, and the slow motion replay showed that his bat actually struck the ball twice, as the ball squirted after the first contact. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article/nyy/twice-is-nice-brendan-ryan-hits-ball-two-times-on-one-swing?ymd=20140807&content_id=88426572&vkey=news_nyy I know that no one picked it up until after it was shown in slow motion, but did the Yankees catch a break, as shouldn't such an action be ruled a foul ball, instead of the...

  12. The Last Two Or More Batters Of A Game Hitting Home Runs

    This afternoon Minnesota at Boston was scoreless after 9 innings with Boston having 1 hit at that point. After Minnesota homered in the tenth, David Ortiz homered to tie it and Mike Napoli homered to make it back-to-back home runs and a walk-off 2-1 win. Does anybody know another game where the last two batters hit home runs and a game where the last two batters hit home runs for their team's first runs of the game?

I have been in ballparks for 17 years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn't consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? Sure, I'm lucky. Who wouldn't consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert?
