ESPN’s great piece on World Series that happened in the “4” years (1924, 1984, etc.) also come with some amazing art. This is Willie Mays making “The Catch” in ‘54 vs. the Indians.
Original design for Truman Sports Complex in Kansas City, 1973.
That’s a rolling roof that could cover either stadium.
Dates back to 1901.
Like, “Brooks Robinson silly” or “Ozzie Smith silly”?
This play is just silly.
He was a flamboyant player, a charismatic coach, and a sexual predator.
This is an incredible piece. Obivously full of trigger warnings.
I know that MLBO is rather light-hearted most of the time but this is so important it should be read.
Addie Joss*, the last pitcher to no-hit the same team twice. Joss threw 74 pitches in his October 1908 perfect game against the White Sox and then shut down the Sox again in April 1910.
Tim Lincecum threw two no-nos against the Padres in 347 days (July 13, 2013 and June 25, 2014)
* Joss died in April 1911 from meningitis and held a career record of 160-97 with a 1.89 ERA, second best ever behind “Big Ed” Walsh, 1.82. Joss holds the record for career WHIP, .97. The National Baseball Hall of Fame waived the ten playing seasons requirement for Joss in 1977 and he was elected to the Hall in 1978.
That’s it. That’s the list.
(Randy Johnson has one World Series ring with his multiple no-hitters and Cy Youngs.)
In honor of the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s “Luckiest Man” Speech all MLB teams will wear this patch. MLB will also promote ALS awareness heavily over the July 4th weekend.
