Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
I stumbled across this blog yesterday and it gives a fascinating look back to a AFL game in 1966 between the Boston Patriots and NY Jets that had the Patriots won, the team may have gotten a new retractable roof stadium in downtown Boston with the Red Sox.
It includes a picture of the proposed stadium. It also links to amazing footage of that 1966 game.

This is being broadcast tonight on MLB network. A kinescope taken from Bing Crosby's cellar of what some call the greatest baseball game of all time the last game of the 1960 World series. It is unbelievably interesting.
MLB network will be showcasing the 2003 Season. Another one of those seasons that drives me nuts. We staged an amazing comeback in game 7 of the 2003 ALCS series...only to watch as Torre bungled game 4 and us get beaten in games 5 and 6. The Marlins celebrating on our field...UGH.
The luster of Aaron Boone's homerun is hurt by the fact he and Moose couldn't get rings and the fact all the taunting we could give Boston ended the following year.
On the other hand, it could be worse. It's also...
Would it be Francisco Cervelli who now has 13 errors?
I was looking back on some of the games I've been to in the last couple of years, and came across the last inning of the June 17th, 2010 game against the Phillies.
The final out of the top of the 9th was recorded by Raul Ibaņez being struck by Ben Francisco's batted ball. The question is -- how would you write that on a scorecard? I've been digging around on Google and can't find much of anything.
Just watching a documentary on MLB Network about the 1919 World Series (the Black Sox, in the unlikely event that you need a reminder).
In it, they mention (almost in passing) that the evidence is pretty convincing that the Cubs threw the 1918 World Series, too. You know, the one that the Sawx "won".
Anyone else know any more about this?
Ok... most of you think, there are already too many numbers retired. And like NOME said, there should be a post for, which numbers to unretire..
Some will now say, that it was once a honor to get the number retired and it will be in the future. And unretiring a number would show disrespect of any player, which oneīs number is unretired. But if retiring goes on lie it always has, one day nearly all numbers will retired.. and what do then ?
So.. if numbers should be...
I know of many players who won World Series Championships with 2 different teams, just thinking of Yankee players from the last 15 years like O'Neil, Gooden, Strawberry, Vizcaino, Justice, Polonia, Damon, El Duque, Canseco, Hinske have all won with 2 different teams, but I cant seem to think of anyone who has won with 3 different teams. Can anyone think of any players who won with 3 or more teams?
Well I just changed my search phrase in Google again and found this:
In the modern era,...
Is this something well known amongst Yankee fans?

Before CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, and David Robertson in this series, when was the last time a team played three consecutive postseason games where at least one of their pitchers allowed at least five runs? When was the previous time the Yankees did that?
Before Robinson Cano in Game Two yesterday, who was the last Yankee to have at least 6 plate appearances in a game, reach base in every plate appearance, and have no RBI?
With three games to go its possible for four teams, Yankees, Rays, Twins & Phillies to all finished tied for the best record in baseball.
I would guess nothing close to this has ever happened before.
Who was the last starting pitcher to get his first career win by beating a pitcher who already had 20 wins that season? It could happen but hopefully won't happen with CC Sabathia and Kyle Drabek tonight.
Anyone know when (what year) that rule was created which allowed clubs to expand their roster to 40 on Sept 1?
Not sure where to post this, but the new episode (The Tenth Inning) airs tonight.
Summary here: http://www.theatlantic.com/culture/archive/2010/09/burns-back-at-bat/63576/
Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki and Chone Figgins each have at least 40 stolen bases, but Seattle needs to win 8 of their last 12 games to finish above .400. The last team to finish below .400 and have two players with at least 40 stolen bases each was the 1896 St. Louis Browns.
Tonight the Mets' Ruben Tejada grounded into a triple play in his eighteenth career at-bat. Who was the last player (if it has ever been done before) to hit into a triple play that few at-bats into his career?
Yesterday Sabathia and Price each allowed 0 ER in 8 innings. Today Nova and Garza each allowed 6 ER in 4 2/3 innings. When was the last time that happened in consecutive Yankee games? When was the last time that happened in consecutive games of a series between any teams?
do you guys know where I could find the 1952 world series leather/wool varsity jacket. this jacket was worn by jay z last year during game 2 of the ws. It is made by g111. tHey make the majority of the other yankee commerative championship jackets.:P
