Baseball Nugget Jul 10 '06

I thought it might be fun to share some interesting Baseball news, stat, event etc with ya'll. Here's a few to kick it off, and as I find more stuff, I'll continue to post them here.

* Willie Mays, once led off and hit an infield single off the first pitch of the game, stole 2nd base on the next pitch and stole 3rd on the 3rd pitch. Ty Cobb was probably the best at this though, stealing, 2nd, 3rd and home in the same inning 5 times in his career. "He did everything except stealing 1st base", someone quoted.

* Twins turned 2 triple plays in the same game (4th and 8th inning), against Red Sox on July 17th 1990.

* Today and the Day after tomorrow (The days before and after the MLB All star game) are the only 2 days in any calendar year when there are no major American games (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA) scheduled.

Nice trivia ! ..Yes, post more as you find them.

""He did everything except stealing 1st base" ...LOL, nice one ! He still had 550 + home runs (or was it 650 +) in a no-steroids era. Impressive huh ?

That 2 triple plays in 1 game is stunning coincidence. Nobody ever talks about that much though. Wonder why ?

Hey! You have a nice site here..really good stuff. Here’s something I want to share with you, especially for travel lovers… I came across this cool airfare consolidator, called cFares. This is sooooo awesome because it ACTUALLY gives you the best deals on airfares. They have something called a Platinum membership which gives you even lower fares than what you get.. I completely recommend this site, especially the platinum membership.
Here’s the link for that…

Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it’s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe…hope this helps!! The Platinum membership is paid and trust me it’s worth every bit!!
