Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Today Toronto's Shawn Camp lost walk-off to Tampa Bay, his former team. Camp became the 28th pitcher since 1919 to intentionally walk at least 3 batters in at most 1 1/3 innings. Two of those pitchers intentionally walked 4 batters and the rest intentionally walked 3. The previous time it happened was when somebody intentionally walked 4 batters last season.
What's the longest streak of consecutive games with a home run by a rookie?
The 1998 Yankees had Cone, Wells, Pettitte, Irabu, Hernandez, and Mendoza with 10 or more wins. What's the most amount of teammates with 10 wins in a season?
Was Cleveland the first team to have at least 1 run, at least 5 errors, and 0 hits in a game?
Pittsburgh's Chris Leroux got his first career win today in his 33rd career game while his teammate Chris Resop got his first career save in his 126th career game.
In the eleventh inning against Pittsburgh, Houston pitchers Mark Melancon and Aneury Rodriguez both committed errors. When was the previous time that happened?
Was Tyler Clippard the first All-Star Game winning pitcher to get 0 batters out?
It seems that Jeter did something unusual....getting hits 2999 and 3000 in consecutive ABs.
What is the longest number of AB between 2999 and 3000 AB?
How many players have gotten their 3000th hit in their next AB after their 2999th?
Before Boston starting pitcher Kyle Weiland today, who was the last player to get ejected from his MLB debut?
Before Sabathia today, who was the last Yankee to have three consecutive scoreless starts of at least 7 innings each? I couldn't fit the whole question in the topic title.
Before today what was the last Yankee game and last MLB with 0 earned runs and 0 RBI?
Before CC Sabathia today and last week, who was the last Yankee to have at least 24 strikeouts combined in two consecutive starts?
Today Baltimore's Pedro Viola allowed three home runs in 0 innings against Boston. Viola was taken out after allowing three consecutive home runs followed by a walk. According to baseball-reference this was the seventh time in 1919 or later a pitcher allowed three home runs in 0 innings and no pitcher has allowed 4 home runs in 0 innings. The previous pitcher to allow three home runs in 0 innings was Cincinnati's Phil Dumatrait in a start on September 9, 2007.
Yankees and Mets both played on the road on July 4th this season. This marks the first time since 1960 that there was no major league baseball game scheduled in New York City on the 4th of July!
Yankees played on the road on July 4th in 1960 & 1958 but they were the only team in town those seasons. Before 1958 it would have only happened before 1919 if July 4th was on a Sunday since Sunday Baseball was not alowed in NYC before 1919.
No July 4th game in 1981 due to the BB strike but a game...
Jamey Carroll is currently 78-for-259 (.301) with 0 HR and 8 RBI. (on pace for 150 Hits, 15 RBI)
Only 32 people in baseball history have hit at least .300 with 20 or fewer RBI and a minimum of 78 hits. 15 or fewer RBI with at least 78 hits gives you 7 players.
Before Cincinnati's Chris Heisey against the Yankees, who was the last player to have his first career 3 home run game before his first career 2 home run game?
In the sixth inning of Friday's game vs. the Rockies, A.J. Burnett struck out the first two batters he faced, looking (Chris Iannetta and Carlos Gonzalez). He then struck out Chris Nelson swinging, but Nelson reached on a wild pitch. Whereupon A.J. struck out Todd Helton, swinging.
It was fairly widely reported that in doing so, he tied the MLB record for most strikeouts in an inning (four) and became the first Yankee to accomplish the feat in the history of the franchise.
It is, in...
Anybody know anything about the 2007 Topps Hunter Pence baseball card showing him in error on the New York Yankees? This card looks just like the standard 2007 card with the "rookie card" logo on it, but again, it says his team is the New York Yankees.
Is it rare? Whats its value?
I think it might have come out in a set near the end of the year only, but not sure. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
The Yankees have 5 home runs and 5 stolen bases tonight for the first time in team history and eighth time in MLB history in 1919 or later.
Edit: Before today the previous team to do it was Texas on June 30, 2009.
