  1. 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...

  2. July 4 1939

    "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...

  3. 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?

  8. The Yankees Led In WAR By A Hitter With Too Few Plate Appearances To Qualify

    Teixeira could lead the Yankees in baseball-reference WAR and will not have enough plate appearances to qualify (3.1 per game). Does anybody know of a Yankee hitter who led the team in WAR without having enough plate appearances to qualify?

  9. What Knuckleballer Hit Paul O'Neill With A Pitch?

    Paul O'Neill said he got hit by a knuckleball while playing for Cincinnati. Michael Kay incorrectly guessed that it was Tom Candiotti. I checked and O'Neill got hit 9 pitchers while with Cincinnati: Mike Houston (of Houston in 1988) Atlee Hammaker (of San Francisco in 1988) Ken Hill (of St. Louis in 1989) Tim Belcher (of Los Angeles in 1989) Ricky Horton (of St. Louis in 1990) Jeff Innis (of New York in 1990) Chris Haney (of Montreal in 1991) Greg Maddux (of Chicago in 1992)

  16. Further Statistical Praise for DiMaggio's Streak

    FiveThirtyEight recently ran an article about how unlikely it would be for someone to top Ken Jennings' streak of winning 74 games of Jeopardy in a row. Today they went one step further to compare that to Joe D's 56 game streak. Long story short, we're likely to see a Ken Jennings' type run on Jeopardy every 25 years, but the likelyhood of someone topping DiMaggio is way smaller. 7% chance every 15 years, or maybe once in 200 years. ...
