    Who Was The Most Recent Yankee Hitter To Play In Exactly One MLB Game?

    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

    He's one of three hitters all-time with 6 at-bats in his only game. He, Clarence Dow in 1884, and Tom Pratt in 1871 all went 2-for-6 in their only game.

    Here, however, is the all-time one-game career for a hitter: http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...aciojo01.shtml

    no extra base hits? no stolen bases? you call that the all-time game? no wonder he was never asked back.

    the rest is just details.

    No, that was because the Astros wanted to protect his career stats. If they'd brought him back, he would have gone 1-for-11, and he'd just be another zhlub who didn't make it.
