Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.

  1. What's The Record For First Inning Home Runs In A Season?

    Mike Trout has 4 already, so I want to know what the record is. Brady Anderson had 15 in 1996.

  2. Jimmy Rollins, and Are There Any Hall of Fame Hitters Who Never Batted .300?

    In an ESPN Poll, 44% think Jimmy Rollins is a Hall of Famer. Rollins has never batted .300 except for 2000 when he had 53 at-bats before his rookie season in 2001, and he won't have a special home run or RBI total. Rollins has an OPS+ of only 96 on baseball-reference. With 2,175 hits at age 35, I doubt he will reach 3,000 hits. I hope fewer than 44% of the Hall of Fame voters vote for him. So what Hall of Famers (if any) never batted .300 and what Hall of Famers have the worst career...

  8. Has A Team Ever Had Four Outfielders Who Had Already Had A Season With 40+ SBs?

    The 2014 Yankees could have Ichiro Suzuki, Alfonso Soriano, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Brett Gardner as outfielders who have already had at least one season with at least 40 stolen bases. Has any team ever had four outfielders like that before?

  11. Johnny Kucks

    I just found out that Johnny Kucks died at the age of 81. He didn't have a great career, but I do remember him winning the seventh game of the World Series against the Dodgers in 1956 with a shutout. Of course, that was right after Larson's perfect game and Kucks didn't get the fame that he deserved. How many of you old timers remember him? May he rest in peace.

  16. Jerry Coleman, RIP

    This Yankee great, who saw combat action in both World War II and the Korean War, was a second baseman for the Yankees in one of their greatest runs, from 1949 to 1957. He then went on to a great career as a sportscaster. http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=colemje01

  17. Paul Blair has passed away

    Thought of mostly as a Baltimore Oriole, Paul Blair was also a tremendous part of the late seventies Yankees. The brilliant defensive outfielder has passed away at the age of 69. Rest in peace, Paul. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/blairpa01.shtml
