Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
Read this and tell me what happened ...
The Indians played a fine game behind Lynch, but the home team won by almost faultless fielding, and Burns's home run hit in the ninth inning, after which Tucker was given a "phantom" hit, stole second, and scored on Griffin's drive to centre field.
Game was described as ...
"Winning runs made with one hand out"
Before Nick Swisher in the first inning tonight, who was the last player and the last Yankee with two or more outfield assists in one inning?
Who was the youngest Yankee on the date he won his 20th game of a season? Could Phil Hughes break the record this year?
Who was the last pitcher to win his 20th game of the season in August or earlier? I ask this because of Ubaldo Jimenez.
Who was the last Yankee to make his MLB debut in interleague play? Was it Tyler Clippard on May 20, 2007? I ask this because Chad Huffman is in the lineup today.
Today against Boston, Cleveland hit exactly one single, one double, one triple, and one home run. When was the previous time a team did that?
Tonight Cleveland's Andy Marte got off to a bad start with three errors in the top of the first inning including two on one play. Boston scored 4 runs in the inning only 1 of which was earned. Who was the last player before Marte to commit three errors in any inning and who was the last player (if it has ever been done) to commit three errors in the top of the first inning?
Tonight the Mets' Ruben Tejada grounded into a triple play in his eighteenth career at-bat. Who was the last player (if it has ever been done before) to hit into a triple play that few at-bats into his career?
According to baseball-reference, 300 wins has been reached 24 times and 3,000 hits has been reached 27 times, so they are about equally rare. However, 200 wins has been reached 110 times and 2,000 hits has been reached 260 times. Therefore if you randomly select a player with at least 200 wins he has a 21.8% chance at having 300 wins but if you select a player with at least 2,000 hits he has only a 10.4% at having 3,000 hits. Going farther down, 1,500 hits has been reached 584 times (David...
Tonight in the bottom of the eighth, the first nine Indians reached base against the Red Sox. The Indians had bases loaded no out after three batters, got RBI singles from the fourth and fifth batters of the inning, got a grand slam from Travis Hafner, and then loaded the bases with no out from the seventh through ninth hitters of the inning. Before that, when was the last time a team hit a grand slam and then had bases loaded with no out later in the same inning?
Starting this thread for AFGator.
Go ahead, Gator, and give us your definitions. Are you asking for hitter or player or both?
Before yesterday and today, who were the last two starters to pitch at least 8 innings each in consecutive games against the Yankees?
Today Omar Vizquel got caught stealing home at age 43. Who is the oldest player ever caught stealing home?
Before the Yankees today, when was the last time any team had bases loaded and no out in three consecutive innings of a game?
Today was the first time Mariano Rivera blew a save in the top of the eighth inning and then did not pitch in the top of the ninth inning.
OK, you guys probably know the answer to this one, but you'd be surprised how many baseball fans (including Yankees fans) don't:
Which ex-ballplayer has the most World Series rings? :)
Yet another of the ladies from the AAGPBL has passed away...
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dorothy "Dottie" Kamenshek (December 21, 1925 May 17, 2010) was an All-American Girls Professional Baseball League player. She batted and threw left-handed.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Kamenshek played outfield for a local softball league, and at the age of 17 she was spotted by a scout from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. After tryouts at Wrigley Field in...
Before yesterday and today, when was the last time (if ever) the Yankees got shutout on consecutive days but not consecutive games due to a doubleheader?
Before Sunday through today, when was the last time the Yankees bullpen allowed 4 or more runs in four or more consecutive games?

Los Angeles Dodgers (September 16, 1988): 84-60, .583
So.. the forum is also described as "This is also a good place for general baseball trivia..."
So lets start a trivia...
someone asks a question and if anybody answers to it correct, he (the oe who answered) may ask another question and so on... so itīll never stop.... if it runs, as itīs planned :D
Start with something really easy...
Which Pitcher won the 2001 AL GG Award ?
Before Ramiro Pena yesterday, who was the last Yankee to pinch run and then bat in the same inning?
Before Ramiro Pena tonight, who was the last Yankee to hit three balls in play in a game that all were not hits but resulted in runs on the play?
Hank Aaron, Willy McCovey and Reggie Jackson all famously wore #44. They established that as a power number for a team's top slugger.
What are some other player numbers that have been worn by other retired players which are synonymous with a certain type of player? Be they great defensive players, base stealers, please elaborate.
My Brooklyn Dodger fan dude is speaking to me again, at least by way of posting Yankee pix. A long drought, but here are some of the better ones.
(check the famous Yankee and you'll recognize his name (hint: he once wore #6 for a year))
Lou Gehrig gently encouraging Babe Dahlgren in the dugout before Dahlgren replaced him as the Yankees' first baseman in Detroit. Gehrig removed himself from the lineup, snapping his consecutive-games-played streak at 2,130.
