Hey baseball fans did you know?
He put what in his office?
Manager Lou Piniella and player Ken Griffey Jr. of the Seattle Mariners had a bet on whether Piniella could hit a batting practice pitch for a home run, and the prize was a steak dinner. Griffey lost the bet and took it to the extreme and he put a 1,200-pound pregnant cow in Piniella’s office. A 1,200-POUND PREGNANT COW!
The only non-complete perfect game
Babe Ruth was pitching for the Red Sox in 1917 and he surrendered a walk to the first batter of the game; he was ejected after arguing with the umpire. Relief pitcher Ernie Shore took the mound in relief and retired the next 26 batters in a row to win the game by the score of 4-0 against the Washington Senators.
How can someone throw that many innings?
Now a days we do not see any pitchers throw more than 9 innings, but back then it was way different. A game between the Boston Braves and Brooklyn Dodgers in 1920 lasted 26 innings. Both pitchers Joe Oeschger and Leon Cadore pitched 26 innings and the game resulted in a 1-1 tie. Talk about a pitchers duel. Both these pitchers hold the record for most innings pitched in one game.
