Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Question: My mother says that when she attended a game at YS in the early 70s (she thinks 1971 or 1972), there was some sort of bank of phones where if you picked them up, you'd hear a recording of a Yankee legend talking, or someone else telling a story about a Yankee legend. My father says he doesn't remember it if it was there, so my mother is wondering:
A. If it indeed existed or whether she's misremembering something.
B. If it did exist, where in the Stadium it was, and any other...
I don't know how many saw this article - http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/memorabilia-imposter-busted-selling-fake-babe-ruth-glove-article-1.1224841
As soon as I saw the picture, my response was "this glove is obviously not a Babe Ruth glove - its for a right handed player".
Unless the picture of the glove in question is reversed, this seller must have been an absolute idiot - and the initial buyer not much brighter. Why would George Herman Ruth love a glove that he...
A friend of mine who is a wiz at carpentry is building a Yankee piece to sell and asked for my help since he's not a big baseball fan. He's going to be making a sort of collage that starts from 1903 up to the present. He's looking for me to give him up to the top 10 best players from each decade, or maybe decide my own eras. It needs to work out to ten total eras for it to work. He's not sure how many players will fit, so he's asked for me to give him the 10, but rank them so he can cut...
So I just got two balls signed by Mariano Rivera today- I have photos of both being signed. I plan on keeping one and selling the other one... is it worth getting the one I am selling authenticated, or is the photo enough?
What about balls I got signed at baseball games that I have no photos of, but may want to sell one day?
Tonight the Mets had 15 strikeouts, 3 hits, 1 walk, and won. It's the third time since 1918 a team has had that many strikeouts, that few hits, that few walks, and won. Teams since 1918 are now 3-23 when having that combination of strikeouts, hits, and walks, and two of the three times a team did it and won were by the Mets. The Mets did it in 1965 and the Angels did it in 1999. Both of those games ended 1-0. The Mets are the second team since 1918 to have that combination of strikeouts,...
Yankees Logo Poster signed by numerous Yankees Legends. Past and Present. The poster is 18x24 in size. It has small creases at the very top center due to Reggie Jackson leaning on it while looking at the other signatures. Barely noticeable unless you look up close.
The autographs were obtained at Official Steiner Sports signings in Long Island, NY and at a GT Sports Marketing Show in New...
From most recent to least recent:
1. Mike Baxter of the Mets on August 4, 2012 at San Diego
2. Colby Rasmus of St. Louis on May 22, 2011 at Kansas City, but he got his fifth walk in the 10th inning
3. Milton Bradley of Texas on April 16, 2008 at Toronto, but he got his fifth walk in the 14th inning
4. Todd Helton of Colorado on April 29, 2007 home vs. Atlanta, but he got his fifth walk in the 11th inning
5. Edgar Martinez of Seattle on June 24, 2004 at Texas, but he got his fifth walk in...
Not sure if this is the right place for this but it does fall under the category of history.
Today marks the 33rd anniversary Thurman Munson's tragic death. I wrote this for the thirtieth anniversary a few years ago.
Remembering The Captain
Iím forty four years old. That means that thirty years ago today, I was a fourteen year old kid. And like a lot of fourteen year old kids, I loved baseball. But not just any baseball... Yankee baseball.
What a great time it was to be a Yankee...
Yesterday Boston used exactly four relievers and they got a hold, blown save, win, and save. Does anybody know of another game where a team used exactly four relievers and each one got a different outcome (hold, blown save, win, or save) without any of them getting a blown save and win?
From most recent to least recent:
1. Ike Davis of the Mets yesterday (July 28, 2012)
2. Steve Finley of Arizona (April 28, 2004)
3. Eddie Murray of Baltimore (September 14, 1980)
4. Boog Powell of Baltimore (June 27, 1964)
5. Gus Bell of Cincinnati (July 21, 1955)
6. Hank Sauer of Chicago Cubs (June 11, 1952)
7. Del Wilber of Philadelphia (August 27, 1951 Game 2)
8. Clyde McCullough of Chicago Cubs (July 26, 1942 Game 1)
Before yesterday, when was the last time the Yankees used five pitchers in one inning?
Today Miami had 7 stolen bases and only 1 run. That's the first time since 1918 a team has had at least 7 stolen bases and at most 1 run.
The Yankees are on a streak of ten consecutive games where neither team scored more than 6 runs and seven consecutive games where neither team scored more than 5 runs. When was the last time each of those things happened?
Now that the Yankees have Ichiro Suzuki on the team, they have three players with 2500+ career hits:
is this a first for MLB?
Tim Lincecum leads the NL with 8 losses.

You would have to have studied the Baseball Encyclopedia with the zeal of a biblical scholar to know of Bob Kammeyer, but he's in there, right between Scott Kamieniecki and Ike Kamp.
http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA195609290.shtml says the Yankees used 26 players in a game in 1956.
Zach Greinke started 3 consecutive games for the Brewers. It was a bit odd as he was ejected after 2 pitches on Saturday, started the game on Sunday then the Crew had 4 days off for the ASB and he satrted on Friday so 3 consecutive games.
When was the last time a pitcher started a teams 3 consecutive games?
Yankees play two home games on Friday the 13th this season.
Both games are against the same team. (Angels)
Both games are started by the same Yankees pitcher (Kuroda)
Yankees won 5-0 back in April so I hope we get the same result tonight.
I looked at http://www.baseball-reference.com/friv/coffee.shtml and the four most recent players with exactly one MLB game who I recognized as Yankees were all pitchers:
Adam Warren in 2012
Steve Garrison in 2011
Sam Marsonek in 2004
Christian Parker in 2001
