  1. What's The Hardest Last Week of a Season in Yankees History?

    The Yankees end at Tampa Bay and Boston, who have the two best home winning percentages in MLB other than the Yankees. What's the hardest last week of a season the Yankees have ever had? I'm talking about the difficulty of the opponents without considering how good the Yankees were than year or how they did in that week.

  2. Best Careers by Hitters Who Never Played Enough to Qualify in One Year

    Hitters need 502.2 plate appearances to qualify (I've seen 502 be listed as okay even though 502 is less than 502.2). 3.1 plate appearances per team game in 154 games would have been 477.4. Steve Pearce's career-high is 383. He has 89 home runs, 283 RBI, 278 runs, and 543 hits. Does anybody know of a player with more than that in any of those categories without having enough plate appearances in any year?

  3. Have Other Teams Clinched The Yankees Division at Yankee Stadium?

    After the Yankees last home game against Boston, the Yankees will have 10 games left and Boston will have 9 games left. In order to clinch the division at Yankee Stadium, Boston would need to lead by at least 10.5. Boston has 13 of their next 23 games at home, and 8 of the 13 are against teams below .500. Does anybody know if a team has ever clinched the Yankees division (or the AL before divisions) while at Yankee Stadium? It counts if a team lost at Yankee Stadium and clinched because...

  6. 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?

  7. 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...

  11. 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?

  18. 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...
