  2. On This Day...January 11, 1973, American League adopts Designated Hitter Rule

    On January 11, 1973, the owners of America’s 24 major league baseball teams vote to allow teams in the American League (AL) to use a “designated pinch-hitter” that could bat for the pitcher, while still allowing the pitcher to stay in the game. The idea of adding a 10th man... https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/american-league-adopts-designated-hitter-rule <!--><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><!--><!--><xml> ...

  5. New Audio of Lou Gehrig Discussing the Babe's Called Shot

    First of all, let me just say that any audio of Lou Gehrig is simply incredible. He was such a brilliant, well-spoken man. If you've never heard it, I strongly recommend you give a listen to this radio interview from August 1939, after his retirement and famous speech. By prior agreement he did not discuss his health, but hearing him talk about the game is a rare and precious treat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX5eoiQzXwQ Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I just stumbled across...

  6. November 21: Stan Musial Centenary

    One of baseball's really great hitters. If he had played with the Yankees back in the 1940s and 1950s, he would, today, be up there in baseball mythology with Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, and Mantle.

  7. Yankees Whose First Game at Yankee Stadium Was After They Left

    Toronto put Rowdy Tellez on the IL and called up Billy McKinney. McKinney made his MLB debut for the Yankees at Toronto on March 30, 2018. The next day, he got injured in LF in the bottom of the first. On July 26, 2018, the Yankees traded Brandon Drury and McKinney for Happ. On August 18, he played his first MLB game since his injury, and it was for Toronto at the Yankees. If he enters today's game, he will have played for the Yankees but never at home and have faced the Yankees in two...

  8. Most Teams Played For by a Player With an MLB Debut at 30 or Older

    I just saw that Erik Kratz is 40. I knew he was old by MLB standards, but I didn't know he was that old. He made his MLB had 30 years and 32 days old, and he's played for nine teams. He's played for the Yankees and both Pennsylvania teams nonconsecutively, meaning that he's changed teams 11 times, and that doesn't include changing organizations while in the minors. He played in three organizations in the minors but not MLB, and including minor league time he was in Toronto's organization...

  13. When do these guys get their Monument Park glory?

    I’m sure the Yanks are taking a break after inducting the Core 4 a few years back, but I’m still amazed at a bunch of legends still on the outside looking in: Hall of Famers: Just about all of the ones left that don’t fall into the category of “well he’s in for another franchise” like Dave Winfield and Rickey Henderson, are from the 1920s teams, so are they waiting on the Golden Anniversary for Waite Hoyt, Earle Combs and Herb Pennock to get Monument Park plaques added to their Cooperstown...

    Boston's Brandon Workman went 10-1 (.909). In 2014, he went 1-10 (.091), for a gap of .818. Excluding seasons with only wins or only losses, do any other pitchers have that big a gap between their best and worst season winning percentages?

  18. Babe Ruth And Ground Rule Double HR's

    I was listening to the Orioles-Red Sox game tonight and Joe Angel was talking about how in 1931 the NL changed the rule where balls that bounced over the outfield wall counted as a home run. Two years earlier in 1929 the AL had changed the rule. So my question is how many of Babe Ruth's home runs between 1915-1928 were actually ground rule doubles? Were there any statistics kept back then that differentiated between the two types of HR's?

  19. Has a Rookie Ever Won an ERA Title?

    After Tampa Bay plays in Saturday, Tyler Glasnow will not have enough innings to qualify. Charlie Morton raised his ERA from 2.32 to 2.65, which moved Justin Verlander to second behind Glasnow in ERA, with Detroit's Spencer Turnbull in third. Verlander has a 2.38 ERA, and Turnbull has a 2.40 ERA. Turnbull is a rookie who went 0-2 in 16 1/3 innings last September. I'm not saying Turnbull will win it, but if he even leads at some point in May or later, that's surprising.

    Marc Rzepczynski's first two years were with Toronto. He made his MLB debut on July 7, 2009. His first game of 2010 was on July 7. What other players played their first game of consecutive seasons on the same date in May or later?
