I wonder what this guy's fark handle is.

Caught stealing four times in one game. Accomplished by Robby Thompson, San Francisco Giants, June 27, 1986.

My personal favorite.

You can tell the article is old, because number 2 has happened a second time.

This is kind of dumb. Only one guy has hit 75 homers in a year!

Only one guy stole 130 bases in a year.

Only one guy threw 7 no-hitters.

Ad nauseum..

Back-to-back homers by the same two teammates in one inning.

Thanks for reminding me of that clusterfark of a game.

What do you mean? 2 in one inning, or leading off your career's first pitch.

The latter, you are correct! Indeed that should not be in this list:

Kevin Kouzmanoff, Cleveland Indians, September 2, 2006

Daniel Nava, Boston Red Sox, June 12, 2010

Of course this silly article is from 2009.

Two triple plays in one game. Lost the game. Ah, the Twinkies. It's almost reassuring to see them back to their losing ways again.

Yeah, as a Mariners fan that must have been epic. The big deal it was former White Sox player Mike Cameron.
 
2012-05-14 04:14:35 PM
This pretty much helps tell you where the Mariners went over the last decade:

2001: Only teammates going back-to-back with HRs in the same inning

2008: Triple play without even hitting the ball

Joel Youngblood played for 2 teams on day\
On August 4, 1982, Youngblood became the only player in history to get hits for two different teams in two different cities on the same day. After Youngblood had driven in two runs with a single in the third inning for the Mets in an afternoon game at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs,[2] he was replaced in center field by Mookie Wilson, and traded to the Montreal Expos for a player to be named later (On August 16, the Expos sent Tom Gorman to the Mets to complete the deal). Youngblood rushed to Philadelphia in order to be with his new team, and hit a seventh inning single.[3] Interestingly, the two pitchers he hit safely against, Ferguson Jenkins of the Cubs and Steve Carlton of the Philadelphia Phillies, are both in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Before that, the guy that stole 129 bases, or threw 6 no-hitters, was news.

They left off the the only time a "Super Grand Slam" has happened: down by 3, on a full count, bottom of the 9th. Chris Hoiles, May 17, 1996. There have been walkoff GS, there have been bottom of the 9th GS, there have been full count GS, but the only time those factors all converged was that game (Orioles hosting Mariners).


I can't post it now but I was at the game and what's more, I can briefly be seen in the crowd.

I thought you just talking about him playing with one hand, so excuse the fark out of me. On another note, my dad was at the first of Johnny Van Demeer's no hitters. He took the streetcar down to Queensgate from Cheviot when he was 10. When he came home his brothers were still listening to it on the radio. They asked why did he leave early, and he said it was a boring game because nobody was scoring. Because he was 10.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Texas Rangers May 10, 2012.

"On April 13, 1987, Marvell Wynne, Tony Gwynn, and [John] Kruk became the first players in major league history to open a game with three consecutive solo home runs in a 13-6 win over the San Francisco Giants."

I swore I read that this has happened at least twice. It was in a book, and I don't remember what book, and I'd have to search through my hundreds of books to find it.

Only American League team.

The Orioles do qualify for the list as the only team to ever hit two grand slams in one inning and then lose the game.

Ryan Roberts hit a walk off slam in the 10th last year, down by three runs. It was the only game I went to all year, while I was briefly in Arizona. Pretty sweet.

The reverse steal rule is the weirdest thing I've heard of regarding baseball. Never had any idea that it was something that was allowed by rule.

I think it's more of a "its tough enough to get around the bases, what kind of moron would start going backwards around them?" thing - you don't necessarily account for all the morons and stat-sluts when you're creating a game.

Johnny Vander Meer accomplished his two no-hit feats in 1938, in the dimly-lit Crosley Field's first night game and 4 days later in Ebbets Field's first-ever night game. Umpire Bill Klem said that the lighting was so poor at Ebbets Field that he had never seen so many batters swing and miss bad pitches by a foot, or two. In both cases, it was so dark that it was difficult to see if an outfielder caught a fly ball. Fortunately for the outfielder's heads, most of the outs made by the Dodgers and the Reds that night were ground-outs or strike-outs. Vander Meer was so wild that he also walked 8 that game, including 3 in the 9th.

/ So I'd say that if a pitcher today, with well-lit fields everywhere, throws 2 consecutive no-hitters, that would top Vander Meer's "feat".

You can see by the picture taken that 2nd night in Ebbets Field that it was dark...

Read the article. It was used as a (yes, bizarre and probably stupid) strategy. Men on first and third. Want to try the double-steal trick where the guy on first breaks first, catcher throws to 2nd, guy on third bolts for home... hoping the ball going from second back to home is something he can beat out.

Well, the catcher just didn't throw to 2nd... let him have it.

So the guy went back to first in an attempt to try the whole thing over.

Yeah, probably a dumb strategy... but you can see *why* they'd do it.

Is that really his hat size now? If so, then doesnt that kind of give a lot of proof he juiced? The worst thing roids do is enlarge bones to give people more of a caveman type appearance, larger head, brow, cheek bones, the wrestler Chyna was obviously juicing during her wrestling days since she looked so much like a man and the porno proved she had a larger penis than Eddie.

I have never heard of a mans head growing that much in the span of 10-12 years.

And it seems from what they say in the article it is a strategy that was extremely rare since only two people have ever stolen first from second.

He was a great player who didnt need to use roids but he did, so now instead of just being a dick, hes a cheating dick.
