World Series & Babe Ruth

The World Series is the annual Championship Series of Major League Baseball, played between the American League and National League champions since 1903. The winner of the World Series Championship is determined through a best-of-seven playoff and awarded the Commissioner's Trophy. George Herman Ruth, Jr. (February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948), best known as Babe Ruth and nicknamed the Bambino and the Sultan of Swat , was an American baseball player who spent 22 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) playing for three teams (1914–1935). 5.0/5

20 years ago today was one of the worst days in Sports History (in my opinion). It ended what might have been and what could have been. Tony Gwynn had a realistic chance of doing something that hadn't been done since Ted Williams in 1941, hit for .400. Matt Williams was on pace to do what only Babe Ruth and Roger Maris had done, hit for 60+ Home Runs. Griffey Jr, Bagwell and Bonds were right behind him and it could have been better HR race than what was seen in 1998. And the Expos were appearing to be the favorites to win the World Series, which would should have changed how the baseball landscape is today. Baseball returned the following year (for a 144 game instead of 162 game season) and quite a few fans came back in 1998 thanks to Mark Mcgwire and Sammy Sosa, but for me it has never been the same as what it was before 1994.

"Win the Watercooler", July 16: -- At 40 years old, Derek Jeter became the oldest player with multiple hits in an All-Star Game, passing Carl Yastrzemski (age 39 in 1979). The oldest Yankees player, prior to Jeter, was the third-oldest with multiple hits all-time, Babe Ruth (age 38 in 1933). Jeter finished 13-for-27 in his All-Star career. His .481 Batting Average is second-best in All-Star Game history. The all-time leader among those with at least 15 plate appearances is second baseman Charlie Gehringer, who hit .500. (ESPN Stats & Info) -- The All-Star Game -- right or wrong -- decides home-field advantage in the World Series. That home-field advantage has been fairly significant in determining the World Series champion recently. Since 1985, the team with the home-field advantage has won 23 of the last 28 World Series, including the last five. Also, the last nine times the World Series has gone to a Game 7, the home team has won each game. The last road team to win a Game 7 was the 1979 Pittsburgh Pira ...
Just a reminder.eighty two years ago in 1932 the New York Yankees, with the slugging of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth took four straight from the Cubs in the World Series, this is the series the "Babe" is alleged to have called the shot putting Charlie Roots fast ball into the bleachers
Chicago Cubs are so bad again this season... We are giving away Bobbleheads figures of other teams players. Babe Ruth playing for those dreaded NY Yankees...pointed to the centerfield bleachers during the 1932 World Series at Wrigley Field and hit a Home Run on target. Last good game played against the Cubs. Yikes!
Here's one for Cameron Holbrook: April 23, 1914: The first baseball game is played at newly constructed Weeghman Park, home to the Federal League's Chi-Feds. The visiting team that day was the Kansas City Packers. By the end of 1915, the Federal League folded, and the Wrigley Family bought the park and moved the Cubs there, naming it Cubs Park. In 1926, it was renamed Wrigley Field. It has been home to many memorable players, such as Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo and Fergie Jenkins. Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson and Greg Maddux called Wrigley home as well. Babe Ruth's called shot to Sammy Sosa's 3rd consecutive 60 home-run season to Maddux's 3,000th strikeout, and who could forget Harry Caray singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"? Wrigley has seen it all - with the exception of a World Series banner. No matter - the Friendly Confines, the oldest park in the National League is a true gem for Cubs fans, and many baseball fans in general. Happy 100th Birthday Wrigley Field! Go Cubs!
Who says there aren't things to celebrate at Wrigley Field over the past 100 years? There's Babe Ruth's called Home Run against Charlie Root in the 1932 World Series, Mike Schmidt's four Home Run performance on April 17, 1976, Slip and Slide Water Park on August 8, 1988, and Steve Bartman's E-10 on October 14, 2003. Anything else?
APRIL 20, 2001 MONDESI AND DELGADO, BACK TO BACK (TWICE) Raul Mondesi and Carlos Delgado entered their names into Blue Jay’s lore today as they became the first Toronto teammates to hit back-to-back home-runs twice during the same contest. The sluggers first attacked Kansas City’s Mac Suzuki for two solo shots in the 1st inning before completing their titanic feat off of Kris Wilson and Tony Cogan respectively in the 7th. Mondesi’s second blast was a grand-slam while Delgado added a third dinger in the 9th to preserve a commanding 12-4 victory at Kaufman Stadium. It was Delgado’s second three home-run game of the young season, with the first coming only sixteen days earlier. Chris Carpenter was the beneficiary of the days offensive heroics and garnered the victory. Home-runs have fascinated baseball fans since Babe Ruth helped pull the game out of disgrace following the infamous 1919 World Series scandal. The Bambino and Lou Gehrig were the first teammates to eclipse the 100 home-run plateau by l ...
Roger Eugene Maris (Sep 10, 1934 – Dec 14, 1985) American Professional Baseball player. He was a Major League Baseball right fielder for 12 seasons and on four teams, from 1957 through 1968. Maris hit a Major League record 61 Home Runs during the 1961 season for the New York Yankees, breaking Babe Ruth's single-season record of 60 Home Runs in 1927. Maris began his professional career in 1953, and reached the Major Leagues in 1957 with the Cleveland Indians. He was traded to the Kansas City Athletics during the 1958 season, and to the Yankees after the 1959 season. With the Yankees, Maris was a two-time American League Most Valuable Player (1960 and 1961), All-Star (1959–1962), and Gold Glove winner (1960). Maris ended his career with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1967 and 1968. Maris appeared in seven World Series, five as a member of the Yankees and two with the Cardinals. His accomplishment of 61 Home Runs in a season came back to the forefront in 1998, when the Home Run record was broken by Mark McGw ...

The recent posting of newsreels featuring Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig/Walter Johnson from 1925 and the 1931, 1934 and 1944 Senators in Spring Training was so exciting that I looked for other film related to the Nats and vintage baseball. Several years ago Hank Thomas told me of locating film of Walter Johnson in of all places, a Dept. Of Agriculture promo film supporting milk consumption. From that experience, I decided to look in a less obvious area and chose British Pathe. Due to copyright and subscription fee requirements, I couldn't download the film, but we are all free to personally view it on their site. Subjects include numerous World Series; Babe Ruth at the NY World's Fair; an amazing view of action at American League Park in Washington in 1919 with Pres. Wilson watching a game between the Army and Navy; a 1924 Giants and White Sox World Tour from Liverpool, England among many great baseball selections. And now for the best part for Senators fans: Babe Ruth's last game as a Yankee at Griffith Stadium o ...

The rest of the story is well known as the Red Sox, after winning three World Series titles with Ruth, would wait 86 years before finally breaking The Curse of the Bambino in 2004, while Ruth would lead the Yankees to four of their franchise record twenty seven World Series titles. Display features a reproduction of the Uniform Agreement For Transfer of a Player to or by a Major League Club which officially sealed the deal along with pictures and plaques commemorating the Babes time as both a Red Sox and a Yankee. price 125.00 pm if interested

Today's Black History Fact: League Park, at East 66th Street and Lexington Avenue in the Hough neighborhood, hosted its first baseball game in 1891, with pitching legend Cy Young on the mound for the Cleveland Spiders. The park is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Indians used League Park from 1900 through 1946, continuing to play some games there for 15 years after Municipal Stadium opened. It was the team's home field during the 1920 World Series. Indians second-baseman Bill Wambsganss executed his famous unassisted triple play at League Park during the 1920 World Series. Yankee Joe Dimaggio stroked the last hit in his 56-game streak at the park in 1941. Alta Weiss, a teenage girl, pitched there for a men's semi-pro team in the early 1900s. The old Cleveland Rams played professional football games at League Park in the 1940s, and it served as a practice field for the Browns until 1951, when the city bought the property and converted it into a community park. The park eventually disintegra ...

Classic pages from a 1927 Kansas City Blues scorebook. I love the old ads, including passenger train service on the Milwaukee Railroad and the Kansas City Ice Company. Pictured in the lineup section is Blues player Lawton "Whitey" Witt, who was in his last year of Professional Baseball. Prior to playing with the minor league Blues, he spent ten years (1916-1926) in the majors with the Philadelphia A's, New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Robins (who would become the Dodgers). He played with the Yankees in the 1922 and 1923 World Series along with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. He was with the Yankees at the inaugural game of the "new" Yankee Stadium in 1923. Read about his life and career in the following SABR Bio.
Answer: The infamous Curse of the Bambino plagued the Boston Red Sox for 86 long years after they sold Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees in 1920. The Sox were not able to escape the shadow of the "curse" until 2004 when they swept the Cardinals in the 2004 World Series.
Off-season baseball movie is the final chapter (for a few years anyway) of Ken Burn's "Baseball - Inning 9", 1970 to 1994. This era saw Hank Aaron break Babe Ruth's all time Home Run record, dramatic World Series Home Runs by Carlton Fisk, Reggie Jackson, and Kirk Gibson, Bill Buckner's error, the beginning of free agency, Al Capanas' display of ignorance, fellow Hiram College alum Bill White becoming president of the National League, the '79 Pirates "We Are Family" World Series team, Bo Jackson, and Pete Rose's banishment from baseball. What he left out was the story of an 18 year old boy who spent his last summer before going away to college at his first and best job ever as an usher for the Washington Senators working section 401 at RFK stadium in 1970.
Game 2 of the 1916 World Series between the Dodgers and Red Sox was won by Babe Ruth.
GLORY DAYS: Robert Moses "Lefty" Grove was born March 6, 1900 in Lonaconing Maryland. He was a left handed pitcher who had a career in the Major Leagues from1925 until 1941 with the Philadelphia Athletics from 1925-1933 and then the Boston Red Sox 1934-1941. While playing with the Martinsburg Mountaineers he was discovered by Jack Dunn who only a few years earlier had discovered another left handed pitcher who went on to a pretty good career and his name was Babe Ruth. After a five year career in the minor leagues with Dunn's Baltimore Orioles, Grove's contract was sold to the Philadelphia Athletics for a sum of $100,000. Grove was a member of the Philadelphia A's during the run the A's had from 1929 thru 1931 when they won two consecutive World Series. Grove was such a good pitcher it was said by one sports writer that Grove could sneak a lamb chop by a hungry wolf. The following is a brief history of what Grove did during his Major League career: 1. Six time American League All Star 1933,35,36,37,38,39 ...
I really hope this Ellsbury trade isn't already the begining of another Red Sox Curse Reverse. I can't even imagine if he became the next Babe Ruth. But then again whats up with the Yankees always picking up our Center Fielders after we win a World Series?
"The Red Sox haven't won a World Series at Fenway since 1918. Back then, there were no steroids. When Babe Ruth got a needle up the *** it was for syphilis."-Jay Leno
guys, all throughout the last 90 or so years the *** New York Yankees have won more World Series than any other team. And here is how they have done it. Not the old fashioned way of earning it. No my friends, they have bought these championships. and in many cases they have bought Boston Red Sox players to do it. Most famously is Babe Ruth. Without him they would not have won any of those Championships in the 1920's. More Recently they have purged from the Red Sox Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, and Judas, Sorry Johnny Damon. Those players were corner stones of 6 championships. And now they are at it again. They have overpaid to get Jacoby Ellsbury to come to the Yankees from the Red Sox. Quite frankly, this pisses me off being a Red Sox fan. So I have decided to do something about it. From this day forward, I put a curse on the New York Yankees that they will never win another World Series in my lifetime. And I plan on living awhile. My curse will be called "the curse of the Berry" in reference to ...
What year was this World Series ? The Boston Red Sox finally returned to the Fall Classic after an eleven year hiatus determined to shake the "Curse of the Bambino" once and for all. Although the "Beantown Bombers" had appeared in nine previous World Series contests (winning five), their last championship title had come an agonizing sixty-eight years prior (in 1918) when Babe Ruth pitched the Sox to two victories over the Chicago Cubs. This time Roger Clemens was on the hill and the Rocket had just completed a spectacular season in which he had compiled a 24-4 record and set a Major League mark with twenty strikeouts in a single regulation game. The New York Mets were making their third World Series appearance (winning last in 1969) and totaled one-hundred eight regular season wins while finishing a whopping 21½ games ahead of their nearest competition. The Mets also boasted a standout pitcher in Dwight Gooden who had dominated the National League much like Clemens had against the American League. Severa ...

Babe Ruth won two games in the 1918 World Series with an ERA of 1.06. He was 1 for 5 with a triple from the plate.
This is going to be a BIG WIN When the Red Sox last won a World Series at home, Babe Ruth, Carl Mays and Harry Hooper were the stars in September 1918, a season cut short by World War I. This is so exciting!
Red Soxs have not won World Series since 1918 with Babe Ruth at Fenway!Go Soxs and God love you Uncle Pete from the World Series from 2004. R.I.P. Miss Ya!
If I were a Carpenter, and you were a Red Sock, I wouldn't play second base in the World Series. And it's just getting uglier an uglier and uglier. Nice rundown, NOT! My senior Babe Ruth players did it better.
This will be the first World Series won at home for Boston since 1918, which was also the last year Babe Ruth played for them! So excited!
Hate the RedSox. Can't believe they may WIN their first World Series on their home field since Babe Ruth played their! YES I CAN!! Let's Go YANKEES!
U a *** fool if u thought Boston wasn't gonna turn up at home last World Series they won at home was when babe Ruth played

Big Papi has a .733 Batting Average in the World Series, Babe Ruth's high was .600. Give this guy the Hall Of Fame already. ⚾️🏆
TUESDAY TRIVIA!! What player holds the record for the most World Series Home Runs? Here is a little help. Was it Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle or Babe Ruth???
Jon Lester joins Babe Ruth as only Red Sox lefties EVER with 3 World Series wins.

Jon Lester and Babe Ruth the only left-handed Red Sox Pitchers to win 3 games in a World Series. Can they split an MVP 3 ways, between Lester, Uehara, Ortiz?
With his win in game 5, John Lester became the second Red Sox lefty to win three World Series games, the first being Babe Ruth.
In honor of the playing in the World Series, we share a photo of Babe Ruth w/ our patients back in 1929! …

HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR WORLD SERIES. CHECK OUT THE HISTORY!!! The St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox will meet in the World Series this year for the fourth time in their long histories. That puts this matchup in a tie with A’s-Giants and Tigers-Cubs for the most common World Series pairing not featuring the Yankees. Of the seven World Series matchups that have happened four or more times, Cardinals-Red Sox is the only one to have occurred this century, having taken place in both 2004 and now 2013. Thus far, these Boston-St. Louis matchups have been more central to the history of the Red Sox, as they have now clashed with the Cardinals after four of their last seven pennants. Those include the Sox’ only two World Series appearances between 1919 and 1974 and, of course, the Fall Classic in which they finally broke their 86-year championship drought in 2004. Here is a closer look back at the first three times these two teams met in the World Series: 1946: Cardinals 4, ...
When the Sox open the World Series on Wednesday at Fenway Park against the St. Louis Cardinals, Bogaerts will be at third base. At the tender age of 21 years, 22 days he will supplant Babe Ruth as the youngest Red Sox to start a World Series game. The Babe was 21 years and 246 days when he pitched in the 1916 World Series.

Today in Baseball History -- Oct. 22 -- from Mary Landers ... 1845 -- The first known box score appears in the New York Morning News a month after the first set of rules is written by Alexander Cartwright and some his fellow Knickerbockers. 1910 -- The Cubs, after three straight defeats and trailing Philadelphia in the ninth by a run, tie the score and then win 4-3 in 10 innings for their only World Series victory. The A's will easily take the Fall Classic in five games. 1927 -- Future Hall Of Famer Ross Youngs dies of Bright's disease.

The 1960 World Series pitted the NL Champs, the Pittsburgh Pirates against The Yankees of New York, champions of the AL. Pittsburgh was the first modern National League Champion in 1901. However championships in Pittsburgh were few and far between in 1960. Their last pennant was in 1927 when they were defeated in the World Series by these same Yankees. The Yankees had a much different history, they played in 8 of the last World Series. The 1960 World Series was one of the most lopsided Fall Classics with Yankees overwhelming Pittsburgh in total runs scored as well as base hits. Gm 1 Pgh 6, NY 4. Gm 2 NY 16, Pgh 3. Gm 3 NY 10, Pgh 0. Gm 4 Pgh 3 NY 2. Gm 5 Pgh 5, NY 2. Gm 6 NY 12, Pgh 0. Gm 7 Pgh 10, NY 9. This New York team were truly the "Bronx Bombers".

From the article below: He informed the players (that he was retiring) right after the season-ending loss in Boston on Saturday night, two victories from a World Series. He thanked them for their respect, then asked them to respect him one last time and keep it quiet until Monday, to give the Red Sox their due and not steal from their story. As he walked back to his office, he recalled, “it was like a bombshell. It was dead silence. So I came back and told them, ‘Fellas, this is Jim Leyland retiring, this is not Babe Ruth. Get a beer. Have a sandwich. Go enjoy yourself.’ ” What a class act. A players coach and a true baseball manager.
Red Sox Beat Tigers 4-3 To Take Series Lead by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS October 18 DETROIT (AP) — Mike Napoli provided the power and the Boston bullpen stymied Miguel Cabrera. Twice in three games, that formula has worked for the Red Sox, and now they're one win from reaching the World Series. Napoli opened the scoring with another big long ball, Junichi Tazawa again bested Cabrera in a crucial spot and the Red Sox edged the Detroit Tigers 4-3 Thursday night. Boston returns to Fenway Park with a 3-2 lead in the AL Championship Series. The Red Sox can win the American League pennant Saturday, when the Tigers' Max Scherzer faces Boston's Clay Buchholz in Game 6. Four of the five games in the ALCS so far have been decided by one run. "There's probably a reason I don't have any hair," Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. "It's stressful." Cabrera was thrown out at the plate in the first inning, halting an early Detroit rally, and he hit into a double play against Tazawa with runners at the corners in the ...
Last time the Dodgers played the Red Sox in the World Series, Babe Ruth was the Sox' best pitcher. The Dodgers and Tigers have never played each other in the Series. Last two times the Cardinals were up 3-1 in NLCS (1996 and 2012), they lost three in a row. Dodgers and Cardinals will play Saturday.
On October 9 in Baseball History... 1905 - At Philadelphia, Christy Mathewson of the Giants outpitches 26-game-winner Eddie Plank 3-0 in the first game of an all-shutout Series. 1906 - Snow flies at West Side Park as the first one-city World Series opens with the 116-win Cubs heavy favorites. White Sox starter Nick Altrock outduels Three Finger Brown for a 2-1 victory. 1910 - Nap Lajoie, in a batting race with Ty Cobb, collected eight hits for Cleveland in a season-ending doubleheader with the Browns. The hits were somewhat tainted, however, as St. Louis third baseman Red Corriden played back as Lajoie bunted safely six times. Regardless, Cobb was awarded the batting title by a fraction of a point. 1916 - Babe Ruth outpitched Sherry Smith of the Brooklyn Dodgers as the Boston Red Sox won the longest World Series game, 2-1 in 14 innings. 1919 - White Sox starter Lefty Williams gets just one man out in the first inning and the Reds go on to a 10-5 victory. Cincinnati wins the best-of-nine World Series in ei ...
Babe Ruth won the final 12 World Series games (only postseason games that existed) in which he played. His 15 WS HR's came in only 9 games
Rare photo of Babe Ruth calling his shot in the 1932 World Series.
I see where the media is saying Carlos Beltran has tied Babe Ruth for the most post-season homers hit. Nothing against Beltran but Ruth played in one round of playoffs each year - the World Series. Beltran, and others have three rounds , sometimes four, of post-season series. So the comparison is greatly unequal. I wish they did not cheapen statistics like this. Selig has created way to many rounds of play-offs and has blurred the lines between the leagues.
Good morning Know it Alls. Did you catch any of the playoff action yesterday? In 1921 in the first one-city World Series since 1906, the Polo Grounds is the site for all nine games. Carl Mays (27-9) needs 86 pitches to set the Giants down on five hits -- four of them by Frank Frisch. Babe Ruth drives in the first run of the Series in the opening inning of the 3-0 Yankees win.
These all-time playoff records they trump up make me laugh sometimes because they can be quite loaded ... Like Carlos Beltran "tying Babe Ruth for playoff HRs." Back when Ruth played, the only playoff games were World Series games. There was no LCS, much less LDS and Wild Card games. Bernie Williams and Derek Jeter are 2nd and 3rd all-time. Just shows volume of games are extremely different, that it's not a fair comparison. Morning rant end.

I was in Indianapolis yesterday, and did something I'd been meaning to do for some time. I visited the gravesite, and paid my respects to the memory, of Oscar Charleston. Many may not recognize the name, even though he is a Baseball Hall of Famer and, by many expert accounts, one of the greatest players in the history of the game. At his peak, as a star in the *** Baseball Leagues of the 1920s, he was compared favorably to Ty Cobb as a contact hitter and baserunner; to Tris Speaker as a fielder; and to Babe Ruth as a power hitter. His unique combination of skills prompted legendary manager John McGraw, he of over 30 years Major League managing experience, 10 National League pennants and 3 World Series titles, to call Charleston the best player he had ever seen. Present day baseball writer and sabermetric pioneer Bill James ... who knows more about the history of baseball than you or I know about anything, whatever our best field of expertise might be ... called Charleston the 4th best player in the hist . ...
On this day, July 7th, 1914, Local Hero "Connie Mack", refused the offer from Baltimore Orioles owner, Jack Dunn. Dunn offered Babe Ruth, Ernie Shore and Ben Egan in exchange for $10,000 from Connie Mack. Mr. Mack refused the offer pleading poverty. Connie Mack, also known as Cornelius McGillicuddy, Sr. (December 22, 1862 – February 8, 1956), was an American Professional Baseball player, manager, and team owner. The longest-serving manager in Major League Baseball history, he holds records for wins (3,731), losses (3,948), and games managed (7,755), with his victory total being almost 1,000 more than any other manager. Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics for the club's first 50 seasons of play, starting in 1901, before retiring at age 87 following the 1950 season, and was at least part-owner from 1901 to 1954. He was the first manager to win the World Series three times, and is the only manager to win consecutive Series on separate occasions (1910–11, 1929–30); his five Series titles remain the ...
TRIVA BRAGGING RIGHTS: On this date in 1921, the Chicago White Sox were first charged with throwing the 1919 World Series, eventually ending the careers of eight players, including Shoeless Joe Jackson (who hit .375 n the series)--whom both Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb called the greatest natural hitter in the game. Jackson's ban kept him out of the Hall Of Fame, despite having the third highest Batting Average in history. For trivia bragging rights, who is the author of the 1982 novel SHOELESS JOE?

the story. The real life Babe Ruth story. By Nick Pellegrino For The East County Californian LA MESA — The 1948 movie classic "The Babe Ruth Story" only slightly alters the true story of 11-year old Johnny Sylvester, a bedridden New Jersey boy for whom Babe Ruth promised — and delivered — a Home Run in the 1926 World Series. For Mountain Empire High School students Riley Lopo and Aaron Mora, the story with a Hollywod twist is as real as it comes. As noted in more than a dozen news stories in recent weeks, Lopo nearly died following a boating accident about four miles from La Jolla's Black's Beach and Torrey Pines State Park. On May 4, while shark fishing with is brother and father, a series of waves capsized the 25-foot, family boat. "Two waves hit us from the back, so we tried to stay balanced," recalled Lopo. "But when another wave hit is from a different angle, it tipped the boat over and we were in the water." The Pine Valley family tredded in the cold Pacific Ocean for several hours. Fortunatel ...
Not one of the greatest baseball players. Babe Ruth was THE greatest baseball player of all time. He single handedly saved baseball after the Black Sox threw the 1919 World Series and changed forever the way the game was played. I mean, how many candy bars are there named after Ty Cobb?

As all or some of you know, I am a die hard Mets fan. This was a result of watching my beloved team on Sundays with my Uncles and father at my grandmothers house so long ago. It is because of my dedication to my team that I say congrats on sweeping those *** Yankees the last few days! Yes I am going to hear about the 27 World Series titles, Babe Ruth, 1927, Clemens throwing the bat at Piazza in 2000. But for four glorious days, the Mets ruled NYC! God bless America, Tom Seaver! 1986! Mookie Wilson and my hero Bill Buckner!

The 5 Worst Decisions in Sports History (Readers Digest) 1 - 1919 - Red Sox sells Babe Ruth to Yankees and he leads them to 4 World Series appearences. Red Sox waits 86 years for their next one. 2 - 1968 - The Heidi movie takes over the Jets / Raiders game -- Oakland scored twice in the last minutes to come from behind and win while people watched the movie about the littlw Swiss orphan girl. 3 - 1993 - Michigan's Chris Webber calls time-out with 11 seconds left and down 73-71 -- but they had no time outs left. THE University of North Carolina -- my Tar Heels! - win the National Championship 77-71. No little Swiss orphan girls (and there was also the game where Fred Brown passed to James Worthy and the Tar Heels win the 1982 NCAA Championship). 4 - 1993 - Michael Jordan (UNC) quits The Chicago Bulls and went to play baseball in Birmingham. (I mean, really, Michael?) 5 - 2010 - LeBron hosts a one-hour TV special on his decision to join the Miami Heat. He took a real PR beating on that one, deservedly. Revi ...
Spring Training starts, and so does the countdown to spring. A little bit of history with your baseball. Between 1910-1920, the Reds loss Sam Crawford in a bidding war, traded Christy Mathewson before he won a game and decline first right to sign Babe Ruth from the Baltimore Orioles. Three HoFamers, and who knows how many World Series lost.
The Forgotten Birds of Baltimore documentary is about the minor league Orioles that played in Baltimore from 1903 to 1953. There were many good teams and ballplayers that played in Baltimore and the O's won seven straight International League championships from 1919 to 1925, and in 1944 won the Jr. World Series. In half of the 50 years they led league in attendance and had a good following. Tid bits; Babe Ruth started his pro Baseball career with minor League O's and Lefty Grove won 108 games playing for them.
On This Day In Baseball History: 1885 - Millionaire Henry Lucas purchases the Cleveland Blues and plans to fill the vacancy in the National League with his own St. Louis Maroons. 1914 - The National Commission grants some demands of the Players' union: players are to be notified in writing of their transfer or release and to receive a copy of their contract; players with 10 years in the Major Leagues are eligible to become free agents; clubs will pay traveling expenses to Spring Training and furnish all uniforms, and outfield fences in Major League ballparks should be painted green to provide a better hitting background for batters. 1916 - King Cole, the pitcher who gave up Babe Ruth's first hit in 1914, dies in Bay City, MI at age 29. Cole was a stellar pitcher while playing for the Chicago Cubs, helping his team to the 1910 World Series. 1917 - With Bill Carrigan reaffirming his decision to leave the Boston Red Sox, shortstop Jack Barry is named the team's new manager. 1920 - Future Hall Of Fame pitcher ...
ON THIS DATE: December 29, 2002 - An end of an era in Cincinnati as Riverfront Stadium (Cinergy Field) is imploded at 8:00 am. The stadium hosted 5 World Series (1970, 1972, 1975, 1976 and 1990), 2 MLB All-Star Games (1970 and 1988) and 2 AFC Championship games (1982 and 1989). Among the many memorable events at Riverfront were Pete Rose's record breaking 4192 hit, Tom Browning's perfect game, Johnny Bench's final Home Run on Johnny Bench Night, Tom Seaver's only MLB no-hitter, Pete Rose's collision at home plate with Indians catcher Ray Fosse in the '70 All-Star Game, umpire John McSherry collapsing and dying behind home plate during the 1996 Opening Day game, Hank Aaron's homerun tying hit with Babe Ruth, Pete Rose shoving umpire Dave Pallone over a controversial call, Lou Piniella throwing first base into the outfield after being ejected from a game, and the "Freezer Bowl" AFC Championship game which put the Bengals in their first Super Bowl. Riverfront also hosted high school football games, college f ...
On December 27 in Baseball history... 1919 - One day after secretly working out a deal with the Yankees to sell Babe Ruth to the Yankees, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee announces that Boston will deal any player except Harry Hooper. Hooper will be sent to the White Sox after the 1920 season. 1981 - Fernando Valenzuela becomes the fifth Los Angeles Dodger to become Southern California Athlete of the Year honors. It winds up an autumn of awards for Valenzuela, who won both the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards -- the first NL pitcher to do so -- and also earned a World Series ring with the Dodgers. 1984 - Free agent pitcher Ed Whitson, who went 14-8 for the NL champion Padres, begins a nightmarish association with the Yankees by signing a five-year $4.4 million contract. By the middle of his second year with the club, he gets so rattled in New York that he can only pitch on the road. The Yankees ship him back to San Diego, where he has four solid years. 1994 - The Chiba Lotte Marines announced that Julio F ...
One of the greatest days in Red Sox history, right up there w/the Babe Ruth trade & Billy Buckner's fielding error in the 86 World Series. Go Yankees!!!
The Panda joins Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Albert Pujols as the only players with three homers in a World Series game.
"Babe Ruth stumped for Al Smith from the back of a train carrying the Yankees home from St. Louis after the 1928 World Series. Ruth wasn’t the most dependable spokesman. He would sometimes appear in his undershirt, holding a mug of beer in one hand and a spare rib in the other. If he met with any dissent while praising Smith, he would snarl, 'If that’s the way you feel, the *** with you!' and stagger back inside."
Congratulations to the Giants on winning the World Series. They had an outstanding Series. But that does not make me a Giants fan. I'm still a 50+ year REDS (BIG RED MACHINE) fan and a 80 year Yankees fan (Babe Ruth, Lou Gherig, Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Mantle, etc).
Pablo Sandoval became the 4th player to hit 3 Home Runs in a World Series game, joining Babe Ruth, Reggie...
really...Demi Lavato singing the national anthem for the World Series, oh yes when I think the great american past time and the legends that came before us, Babe Ruth, Joe Dimaggio, I think the music of Demi Lavato.
Yesterday's Triivia" Mickey Lolich was the MVP of the 68 World Series...good job Gary and Barry. And the four players to hit 3homers in a Series game, Sandoval, Reggie Jackson, Pujols and The Babe. Keith nailed it and even included that Babe Ruth did it twice...nice.
So, 3 days ago I never heard of Pable Sandoval. Now, the name goes with Pujols, Reggie Jackson, and Babe Ruth. Ugh, SF got off to a great start in this World Series.
Alright, Pablo Sandoval did something last night that only three other baseball players have ever done. Three Home Runs in one World Series Game. However, in my opinion, there is one thing that sets last nights batting feat above the other four (Babe Ruth did it twice). That is, AT&T Park is considered by almost every player who has ever played there, for any team; to be the single hardest ballpark in existence to get a Home Run in. As a youngster I knew the Baltimore Oriole's iconic Leo Burke who knew a thing or two about hitting. (he was from my home town of Hagerstown, Maryland) He told me that even the greatest Home Run hitter ever (Ruth at the time) became a bit nervous in the World Series. He added that for someone like the Babe who seemed to understand exactly where to hit the ball to send over the fence, Home Run hitting was an instinctive trait. Today it could be said that Babe Ruth understood the science of hitting balls out of the park. With all of that said; I still have to wonder if the Babe ...
Pandoval! Pablo adds his name to the short list of players to hit 3 homeruns in a World Series game! The others? Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson! If their bats stay hot, the Giants are headed to another Championship. Go Giants!
Babe Ruth (2x), Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols, now Sandoval are only players in history w/3 homeruns in 1 World Series game.
Congrats to Pablo Sandoval who joined Babe Ruth in hitting 3 Home Runs in a World Series game!
The SF Giants defeated the Detroit Tigers 8-3 in Game 1 of the 2012 World Series. Pablo Sandoval did what Babe Ruth did twice, Reggie Jackson did once, and what Albert Pujols did last year.
Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols and NOW Pablo it when history is made! All my peeps going to the World Series have an amazing time. Giants are playing with so much HEART.
Mentioned to my 8-year-old that I read in the paper that Pablo Sandoval hit 3 Home Runs in last night's World Series opener... "I've hit five." ...and that only three other people have done that before, including Babe Ruth... "Thought so." ...Reggie Jackson... "Mm-hmm." ...and Albert Pujols. *Giggle-snort* "You said pooh-holes."
Kung Fu Panda! He tied Babe Ruth (who did it twice) and Reggie Jackson for hitting three dingers in a World Series game. I remember when Jackson did it they were all on first pitches though. But still it is quite a feat. It would be great if they swept the Tigs as I am emotionally spent after watching them get here by coming back from the dead twice. Go Giants!
Albert Pujols, Reggie Jackson, Babe Ruth (twice), and now Pablo. 3hr in one World Series game. Holy Crap.
For anyone who knows and loves the General Authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ - You'll love this! LOL Thanks to Bruce Fey, my France Paris Mission Assistant to the President 1987 TOP TEN WAYS General Authorities Eat Reese's Peanut Butter Cup 10. Paul H. Dunn: "I remember back in WWII that I ate a Reese's PeanutButter Cup. Back then, they were big enough to live on for a week. Being the only soldier to have survived the battle in my brigade, I really didn't know if I could eat it or not, but I remember my fallen buddy's words as he died in my arms: "Paul, if you just take one bite at a time you can tackle anything." So I took that giant cup and, breaking it with the bat Babe Ruth gave me after I struck him out with two outs in the bottom of the ninth in the seventh game of the World Series, proceeded to wolf down the tiny morsels." 9. David B. Haight: "Imagine 70 years ago on a rough road between Idaho and Logan. There were no Circle K's, no 7-11's. You had to bring your Peanut Butter Cups with you ...
The Giants repeated as World Champions,beating the Yankees,with the great Babe Ruth in 1921 and 1922.The Fall Classic in 1921 was the first to be broadcast on radio with Grantland Rice,and the last best of nine World Series.
Today is the birthday of Jimmie Foxx, born in 1907, nicknamed “The Beast” or “Double x,” he was a first baseman for the Athletics, Red Sox, Cubs and Phillies. 9 time All-Star, two time World Series champion, 1951 Hall Of Fame, he was the second Major League hitter to hit 500 Home Runs after Babe Ruth.
The New York Yankees are Major League Baseball’s most renowned and successful franchise. Baseball greats such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Derek Jeter have all worn the famous navy blue and white pinstripes. The Yankees have won 27 World Series Championships, and 29 players who spent at least a ...
By Jayson Stark...just a piece of a GREAT article... Then Carlos Beltran, a man who said he watched every pitch of Game 6 of that World Series last October on the flat screen in his house, marched up to lead off the ninth. And roped a 95 mile an hour Drew Storen heater up the gap for a double. It was the fifth time Beltran had reached base in this game (via two doubles, a single and two walks). It made him just the second player in history to reach base five times by hit, walk or hit-by-pitch in a win-or-else postseason game. You might have heard of the other guy: Babe Ruth.
Ok, if the Cardinals and Yankees make it to the World Series, I hope one of the following occurs: 1) The aircraft that flys over during the national anthem accidentally gets the order to drop a bomb on Busch Stadium. 2) Aliens abduct Bud Selig and the World Series trophy. 3) 2012 happens two months early. 4) Game 7 is tied in the 9th inning and a rain delay suspends the game. Rain then proceeds to drench St. Louis forever. 5) Al Bundy and the members of NO MA'AM run onto the field and blind the players with their beer bellies. 6) Joseph Smith resurrects the new Jerusalem in Missouri and Mormons flood the stadium and the world ends. 7) Rammstein accidentally sets both stadiums on fire as part of their pre-game concerts in a "on a whim partnership" with MLB Network. 8) Babe Ruth's ghost rises from the grave and demands an apology for tearing down the old Yankee Stadium and doesn't leave the premises due to the lack of an acceptable apology. 9) Vince Mcmahon repeatedly hits the pitcher with a steel chair whe ...
Thank you Jay Bruce! Worst caught stealing since Babe Ruth thrown out to end the 26 World Series
