He was overshadowed by the likes of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey and Joe DiMaggio and it took him far too long to make it to the Hall of Fame even after he died far too young at the age of 42 from a fall. Tony Lazzeri also was one of the best hitting second ...
Known as a "hired gun" he had a 20-3 record one season, won a Cy Young, helped Canada win a World Series title, and helped another franchise to its first World Series title in 18 years. He also pitched a perfect game and now works as a broadcaster. David Cone started his career in 1986 for ...
George Steinbrenner gave him the nickname “The Warrior.” His last game at Yankee Stadium, Game 5 of the 2001 WS, was marked by fans chanting his name, reducing Paul O’Neill to tears. His arrival, along with that of Jimmy Key and Wade Boggs in 1993, helped end a streak of four consecutive losing seasons. By bringing ...
He had nicknames that seemed to come out of Robin Hood---“The Squire” and “The Knight of Kennett Square.” Herb Pennock was one of the first, if not the first, of the great lefty mound artists in Yankee history. Pennock preceded Lefty Gomez, Ed Lopat, Whitey Ford, Ron Guidry, Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia. He was a ...
His nickname was “Schoolboy.” He came up to the majors at the age of 18 with the New York Giants, and in 1921, at the age of 21, he helped the Yankees to their first pennant. Two years later, he helped them to their first World Series Championship and in 1927, while in his prime ...
Is it possible for someone who is a Hall of Famer and who has his number retired by the team he labored for to be overlooked and underrated? It may be, if that individual was overshadowed by more flamboyant teammates such as Babe Ruth. Or if that individual had teammates like Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio ...
In baseball seasons’ past, and especially before the advent of the wild card, teams would win 100 games and not make the postseason. See the 1942 Dodgers (104-50), 1954 Yankees (103-51), 1961 Tigers (101-61) or 1993 Giants (103-59). It’s tough to take. Even when the Yanks made the postseason in 1980 or 2002 for instance, ...
Soon, we should see the #6 retired. Joe Torre is right up there with Miller Huggins, Joe McCarthy (neither of whom wore a number) and Casey Stengel (#37 retired). I’m not one who thinks Billy Martin’s #1 should be retired (compare his numbers to Ralph Houk’s for example, and no, I’m not saying Houk was ...
