Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Tonight Matt Cain struck out in his fourth career pinch-hit plate appearance. He pinch-hit for Barry Zito. Cain has 5 career home runs. He has a career .326 OPS. In 2011 he had 6 RBI in 66 at-bats.
The Mick Hall of fame center fielder. Won three M.V.P. Awards,Seven world series rings.Also as we know he hit 536 home runs,but remember he was a switch hitter.It was really great to have my father to,at age seven see him play.And I did not have a clue just what an impact that had.As I got older and he turned into my idle,like so many of us, I know now we all have our own player as we get into life as yankee fans.They to become our idles, and that is why I know why we will always love our...

Just finished watching all 6 World Series games, to help learn about baseball, and to see the more recent team in action win it.
Sorry if what I'm about to say has all been said before, but being new to baseball, just things I picked up.
One thing I noticed across the 6 games was how bad the officiating was at times, and that there was in particular, one or two umpires/referees (what are their proper name?) were against the Yankees.
I loved learning about Pedro Martinez; I think I...
A.J. Burnett won in 2003 against the Yankees and in 2009 with the Yankees. Who else did that (in either order)?
Man you guys are tough but that is fine .More of the same,here goes and because this is Triva I will give all the answers,but were is the fun at.Anyway enough of this ----.Two things,What Pitcher went 25 and 3 and had an era of 1.74 and had two nicknames.Here is the first answer,Louisiana Lighting and The Gator.ARE we good to go myman.Number two Q and A.In game six of the 1977 World Series what happen to clinch the title,they even had a candy bar named after it happened.Clue the Dodgers were in...
The point of this thread is the title, really. My apologies if I've misplaced the post in terms of forums or if there's a similar thread; I don't post nearly enough to be aware if I'm mistaken.
Anyway, I was talking baseball earlier with my wife, and for some reason or other, I remembered Aaron Small. She had no idea what I was rambling about, so I had to give the Cliff Notes version of his entire story. Looked kind of like if John Cena had a less-jacked older brother. Hell of a...
World series teams,1961.New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds.Yankees take the series 4 games to 1.Most Valuable Player was Whitey Ford.In 1977 the Yankees won the series 4 games to 2.The Most Valuable Reggie Jackson.And in 1978 it was the Yankees and Dodgers again,The Yanks took the Dodgers again 4 games to 2.The most Valuable player was Bucky Dent.:D
:DOur great Captain has 5 World series rings 5gold golves and 11 all star apperaances.And as we all know he will be a first ballot hall of famer.The man really is, as we all know the glue that holds the team together. So for me I really fell it in my bones that Derik will pick-up right where he left off last year,and have his normal season.
Just a little fun.And thanks for not being to hard on me. Well here goes,who was the only pitcher to have an era of 1.74 have an overall record of 25-3.Here is the key I will give you one nickname Louisiana lighting,you tell me the other.:)
I know that Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Miller Huggins are all recognized with the large red granite blocks. :-ponder-: I'm kinda wishing that Mariano Rivera would hurry up and retire so he could get his red granite block added to the collection very soon. :eek:;)
Wondering who you think will be the next to get added in this special way to Monument Park?
As for the plaques there that are also a great honor to have, I've kinda wondered why some guys that have been retired for...
Boston Globe - June 21, 1967
This is more than just desperate, it is offensive. Not to mention incorrect. Red Sox uniforms didn't have numbers when Babe Ruth played for them.
Phil Rizzuto "I'll never forget September sixth nineteen-fifty. I got a letter threatening me, Hank Bauer, Yogi Berra and Johnny Mize. It said if I showed up in uniform against the Red Sox I'd be shot. I turned the letter over to the FBI and told my manager Casey Stengel about it. You know what Casey did? He gave me a different uniform and gave mine to Billy Martin. Can you imagine that! Guess Casey thought it'd be better if Billy got shot."
I just read in the paper that this former Yankee third baseman passed away. For those of you old enough to remember him playing for NY, you will remember that he played 3rd for some great Yankee teams in the 1950's. He was in several of their WS teams from that era and played a decent third base....not great but very dependable. Do any of the rest of you old timers remember him?
Was in the same studio with some guys named Orr and Bird. Amazing how Ted takes total control and they happily allowed it.
Ever since, well, 1978 it has been my understanding that Bucky Dent and Brian Doyle were co-MVPs of the series. But tonight I was watching MLB's official 1978 World Series recap video and it said Dent was the MVP. Baseball Reference seems to agree:
When I Google around, I see a few links calling Dent and Doyle co-MVPs, most of them from memorabilia dealers selling Brian Doyle autographs. I'm not finding any...
For years I've been wanting to meet Yogi (at a show or his museum) and get a signed ball.
I'm not usually a person to buy an autographed item. Between living out of the area and Yogi getting older, I have a feeling it's the only way.
I was wondering if any of you know of a reputable place to get one (not ebay) without feeding the Steiner machine.
I have a signed bascball, that was found after my father-in-law passed away, This ball has over 25 sigs on it, Some I can make out, Mantle, Berra,McDougald,Carey, Kucks, and so one,, I would love to know the "Year" this was signed..
I can post pics here or I can send you some pics,,
