  2. Teams With Nobody In The Top 100 In MLB In RBI

    After trading Beltran, the Yankees leader in RBI is Didi Gregorius, who has 43, which puts him tied for 101st in MLB. Beltran had 64 RBI with the Yankees, which would put a player tied for 95th last year, so only counting his RBI with the Yankees he could still finish in the Top 100. Do you know of any teams who finished the season without anybody in the Top 100 in MLB in RBI? A player who left the team during the season is excluded regardless of how many RBI he got with that team. A player...

  3. 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...

  10. The 1912 world series

    In the 1912 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants four games to three (with one tie). This dramatic series showcased great pitching from Giant Christy Mathewson and from Boston fireballer Smoky Joe Wood. Wood won two of his three starts and pitched in relief in the final game. In the deciding game, Boston rallied for two runs in the tenth inning thanks to two costly Giants fielding misplays. Nearly all of the games were close. Four games in this Series were decided by...

  12. Joe DiMaggio wearing a 9 on jersey?!

    Please help me out...I recently found an old "Baseball Magazine" from May 1938. On the cover is a picture of Joe D, with a NY pinstripe jersey w/ Number 9. I know Maris retired number 9. Maris also played from 1960-66, way after this magazine was published... what is going on? Did Joe wear 9 for one season or what ? Who else could have worn 9 on May 1938? Is this just an error? Please help...

    "Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth. 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? Also, the builder...

  14. Louis Arroyo is dead

    For those of you too young to remember him, he was a very good relief pitcher for the Yankees in the early 1960's. In fact, in 1961 he had a 15 and 5 record and saved 29 games. Many of those saves were for Whitey Ford who probably would not have had over 20 wins that year without him. How many of you remember him or even saw him pitch?
