  2. Who am I

    I was one of the least heralded of the great pitchers, 187-117 in late teens through '20s. I threw together four consecutive 20-win campaigns for the St Louis Browns, including an AL best 27-12 in 1921. I had a very quiet, intense and serious demeanor. Although I was known as A finesse pitcher, I threw a legal spitball. I also had a bent finger from my days as a catcher which I think helped my pitching. I Spent 1925-28 with the Yankees. Who am I ?

  3. Historical Interlude # 1

    Pinch-hitters shined in the 1947 World Series... Cookie Lavagetto got the most memorable pinch-hit of that fall classic. His double, with 2 outs in the 9th inning of game 4, broke up Bill Beven's no-hitter and gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory. But the Yankees had their pinch-hitting heroes too ! In game three, Yogi Berra, a rookie, hit the first pinch-hit home run in World Series history !! !! The "Golden Boy" tag, however went to another Yankee rookie, Bobby Brown. He hit safely in his...

  8. Appreciate a response from anyone who saw Bill Dickey play.

    I was not fortunate enough to see Bill Dickey play.....I would appreciate any descriptions of him as a hitter/player that anyone who watched him would care to make. Perhaps, of the great Yankees, I know less of him than anyone.......Thanks.

  13. #3 should be retired for all time

    I would like to see a move made to retire #3 for all time much like #42. With all due respect to Jackie Robinson and all he went through, I feel that Babe Ruth had quite a hand in bringing baseball back after the Black Sox scandal almost put an end to this wonderful game. I've heard it said again and again by baseball people, both writers and players and officials, if not for The Babe, we might not have baseball to enjoy today. I recently heard that Marvin Miller should be voted into the...
