  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...

  13. Further Statistical Praise for DiMaggio's Streak

    FiveThirtyEight recently ran an article about how unlikely it would be for someone to top Ken Jennings' streak of winning 74 games of Jeopardy in a row. Today they went one step further to compare that to Joe D's 56 game streak. Long story short, we're likely to see a Ken Jennings' type run on Jeopardy every 25 years, but the likelyhood of someone topping DiMaggio is way smaller. 7% chance every 15 years, or maybe once in 200 years. ...

  18. Great Yankee pix

    An original Brooklyn Dodgers fan, who'd seen them in their glory days, posted these on another board. I figured I'd share. :) Yes, some of them are large, so please be patient if you've got an older PC + slow connection. Anyway, I think that some of these are irresistible, and here they are in no particular order: Site of Yankee Staduim 1922 Construction begins 1922

  19. Al Rosen Has Passed Away

    Former Yankee President (late seventies?) Al Rosen has died. Al was a third baseman for the Cleveland Indians in the 1950s, including the one year they went to the World Series. He was AL MVP in 1953 with 43 homers. He missed the triple crown in 1952 by one percentage point in his batting average. Great player, and one of the greatest Jewish major leaguers. Born on Leap Day in 1924, he passed away on Friday. RIP

  20. 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.
