  1. Being on Both Sides of a No-Hitter in One Year

    The Philadelphia Athletics' Bill McCahan pitched a complete game loss (although the bottom of the ninth wasn't necessary) when Cleveland's Don Black pitched a no-hitter on July 10, 1947 in Game 1 of a doubleheader. On September 3, 1947, McCahan pitched a no-hitter against Washington. Does anybody know of another pitcher who pitched a no-hitter and started a game his team got no-hit in one year?

  2. Yankee Stadium in the early 70s question.

    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...

  6. Both Leadoff Hitters Starting With a Hit By Pitch and Stolen Base

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/HOU/HOU198609250.shtml for a game Mike Scott pitched a no-hitter in. In the top of the first, San Francisco's Dan Gladden led off, was hit by a pitch, and stole second before the second plate appearance was finished. In the bottom of the first, Houston's Billy Hatcher did the same thing. Can anybody find another game where both leadoff hitters were hit by a pitch and stole second before the second plate appearance was finished?

Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Howard, and Ryan Braun finished first, second, and third. Does anybody know of another player who had at least three consecutive number finishes including winning? The numbers have to be consecutive, but the years do not.

  12. Mickey Mantle card sells for (almost) record price

    Mantle's Topps rookie card just sold for $2.88 million, the second highest price ever for a baseball card (after the 1909 Honus Wagner). The prior high price for this card was $1.13 million in 2016, though that involved a card with a slightly lower grade (8.5) than this one (9). http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23254147/1952-mickey-mantle-baseball-card-topps-sells-record-288m

  13. Who am I?

    I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country. I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed. Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...
