Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.

  1. Who were the original Killer Bees?

    We were sitting around the tube last night and this question came up. I cannot remember the original Killer Bees. The only two names I come up with are Bagwell and Biggio. If memory serves me, there were 3 original members. Who was the third?

  2. Murcer cheated?

    Did anybody catch Murcer's story about cheating in a game against the Sox, where somebody (RF, I assume - not sure who it was, I forget) went over a wall to try to make a catch robbing Yaz of a HR. he got over there to check on his teammate, who was knocked out, and seeing the ball lying next to him, put it into the glove so that the umps would call it an out. Obviously it doesn't matter now (maybe didn't "matter" then in terms of outcome of the game), but anybody else find it odd to talk...

  3. Catfish in 1978

    This is copied from my daily history, but I think it's worth putting in its own post. Put it under the heading of "lest we forget," I guess. "Ask a number of Yankee fans with a sense of history individually about 1978, and two arcs will emerge. In light of the day held in his honor in Yankee Stadium just last year, we'll mention the incredible 25-3 Cy Young season of Louisiana Lightning, Ron Guidry first. And hand in hand with that, of course, was the stirring comeback from 14 games...

  6. How to score 11 runs on one hit.

    Here's a true story that I tripped across in my web travels that I thought would interest some members. The article is entitled "TEAM SCORES 11 RUNS IN ONE INNING ON ONE HIT " . It's about one inning in the life of the Chicago White Sox. (Baseball is indeed a funny game!) http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/excerpts/records_registry7.stm

  9. RIP Ray Boone

    This happened a few days ago; I'm surprised no one brought it up (or else I was unable to find a thread on it being that the search feature here has been disabled) -- the patriarch of the first three-generation baseball family (father of Bob, grandfather of Bret and Aaron "F*cking") died on Sunday at age 81. Interesting that it happened on the year anniversary of the homerun that gave Aaron his new middle name. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/2004-10-17-ray-boone-obit_x.htm

  17. Card collector's question

    I recently bought a box of Upper Deck Etchings. In the box I got 4 autographs among them were 2 Ken Griffey,Jr. They were identical except for the serial numbers. I traded one of them even up for a 1996 Leaf Signature Series (gold) autograph of Mariano Rivera. The gold issue was limited to 500 autographs and is not numbered. The Griffey is serial numbered 1231 of 1629. Does anyone have an opinion on the deal I made? Thanks.
