Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
I'll start with two:
Armando Benitez in 2003
Kelly Stinnett in 2006
I have a jersey signed by 10 folks from the 1996 NYY team - looking to get it authenticated and appraised. Are there any NYY specific dealers that you'd recommend going to?
Ricky Ledee played for the Yankees, Cleveland, and Texas in 2000. Has anybody played for four or more teams in one season?
Sam Marsonek pitched for the Yankees on July 11, 2004 and then promptly got injured off the field during the All-Star break. He is now coach of Cambridge Christian School in Tampa.
Matt Stairs's first team was Montreal in 1992 and 1993 and now he is with Washington.
Terry Mulholland played for Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia, and San Francisco nonconsecutively. Miguel Cairo played for Chicago Cubs, St. Louis, and New York Yankees nonconsecutively.
Edit: David Wells played for Toronto, New York Yankees, and San Diego nonconsecutively.
Terry Mulholland had 6:
San Francisco and Philadelphia in 1989
Seattle and Philadelphia in 1996
Chicago Cubs and San Francisco in 1997
Chicago Cubs and Atlanta in 1999
Pittsburgh and Los Angeles Dodgers in 1991
Los Angeles Dodgers and Cleveland in 2002
Can anyone tell me where I can find a COMPLETE version of Lou Gehrig's farewell speech for download or at least able to listen online? Thank you.
Today Arizona's Barry Enright allowed 12 hits to 10 Mets including pitcher Dillon Gee. How rare is that?
Friday the Yankees hit into 6 DP's. While I'm sure that has happened before the first 6 batters in the lineup each hit into one of the DPs.
Could this be the first time that batters 1-6 in a game each grounded into a DP in the same game?
Does anyone know where I can find a Don Mattingly Converse Poster?
It's a really cool poster, and I'm looking to add one unsigned to my collection. Can't find them. :(
Before Lance Pendleton today, who was the last Yankee (if ever) to make his MLB debut wearing #42 for Jackie Robinson Day?
Before today, when was the last time (if ever) two New York teams (Yankees and Mets, Yankees and Dodgers, Dodgers and Giants, I don't care what pair) both had scheduled home games rained out the same day? Rain outs when the Yankees and Mets were scheduled to play each other don't count. On another note, is there a site that has the original and actual date of postponed games going back many years?
FYI - ESPN Classics is showing Game 6 of the 1977 World Series right now where Reggie Jackson hit three homeruns (off the first pitch each time). It's almost over but ESPN Classics will be showing it several more times.
Billy Wagner has a career strikeout rate of 11.92 per 9 innings which is by far the most in MLB history among pitchers with at least 900 innings. The next best is 10.61 and eight pitchers have at least 9 per 9 innings. Wagner's career WHIP is 0.998 which is almost as good as Rivera's 0.996. Rivera has a 2.22 career ERA and Wagner has a 2.31. Wagner has a slightly better K/BB, 3.99 to 3.95. Rivera has significantly more innings and saves. From 2002 on when blown saves started being kept...
Who was the last Yankee catcher to hit two home runs in one game before Martin and Posada?
Twice in our last 12 regular season games going back to last season the opposing starter (Scherzer today and Beckett in September) allowed 4 home runs and got a win anyway. Before Beckett you have to go over five years back for the previous opposing starter to do it, Bartolo Colon.
So.. the forum is also described as "This is also a good place for general baseball trivia..."
So lets start a trivia...
someone asks a question and if anybody answers to it correct, he (the oe who answered) may ask another question and so on... so itīll never stop.... if it runs, as itīs planned :D
Start with something really easy...
Which Pitcher won the 2001 AL GG Award ?
From an ad in the 1990s (Gaedel passed in 1961)
This should be great to see.
