When did catchers start wearing batting helmets under their masks rather than cloth caps?
the first one I remember was Joe Ferguson. I'm not saying he WAS the first, just the first one I remember doing it
This isn't a trivia question. I'm trying to solve a trivia question.
The question is actually a facial picture (very close-up) of a catcher who is wearing a cloth cap (backwards) rather than a helmet. We're supposed to identify the catcher.
I'd like to see Moose gun for that. He's got the swing for it.
Velez beat Hal Finney's record from 1936. Finney did it without walking or having any non-AB plate appearances, so he has his own record for a .000 OBP.
with the Rangers' lone run scored at Fenway last night, Beltre ties Pie Traynor for 191st in career Runs with 1,183.
McGwire started the 2001 season with a Moustakasesque 1 for 20 with one homer.
Adrian Beltre Milestone Watch: with the Rangers' lone run scored at Fenway last night, Beltre ties Pie Traynor for 191st in career Runs with 1,183.
OK, as a milestone that's weak. But tying Pie Traynor is a nice conjunction for a slick veteran 3B.
Willie Mays started out 1 for 26, but he'd raised his career average from that .038 to almost .300 16 days later. Then he just kind of stagnated around .300 for the next 22 years.
Ryne Sandberg started out 1982 (and his Cub career) 1 for 32. Add in his 1 for 6 cup of coffee the year before, and he started his career 2 (both singles) for 38 with 1 walk. Not sure if any HOFer started out worse.
