Forreal...if you're going to have a position in the game, at least induct someone who played that position!

They'll put Big Papi in because he hit 500 home runs.

It's dumb and Edgar deserves to be elected.

Because they think we're stupid and can't tell balls and strikes without it

I hate the K Zone

And while I'm griping, I wish I had access to behind the plate camera angles. Sometimes I wanna see what the batter sees. I'm surprised MLB hasn't brokered a deal with GoPro.

Since Baseball Hall of Fame weekend has concluded, I found this audio and thought yall might be amazed

 

https://audioboom.com/boos/2407591-1939-inaugural-hall-of-fame-induction-ceremony

 

Hearing the voices of Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Connie Mack, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Tris Speaker, Grover Cleveland Alexander! :hat:eek

Today in Baseball History - July 27th (Click to show)
Today in Baseball History
July 27th

1918 In his major league debut, Robins (Dodgers) starter Harry Heitman, after giving up hits to four consecutive batters in a 22-7 loss to the Cardinals, is pulled from the Ebbets Field contest. The 21 year-old Brooklyn rookie right-hander will never hurl again in the big leagues, ending his career with an ERA of infinity.

1919 With a hit in his 50th straight Western League contest, Wichita Jobbers' outfielder Joe Wilhoit, en route to a 69-game streak, surpasses Jack Ness for the longest consecutive-game hitting streak in the history of professional baseball. Ness's mark, established four years earlier playing first base for the Oakland Oaks, will remain the Pacific Coast League record until Joe DiMaggio hits in 61 straight for the San Francisco Seals in 1933.

1938 For the second consecutive day, Hank Greenberg hits a pair of home runs in one day. The Tiger first baseman will accomplish this feat a record setting eleven times during the season.

1943 Without informing Bucky Harris, his current skipper, Philadelphia owner William D. Cox announces at a New York press conference that Freddie Fritzsimmons will be taking over the managerial reins of the team, never mentioning the man he is replacing. The Phillies players threatened to go on strike in protest, but, at the urging of their former field boss, decide to drop the plan after the owner threatens legal action.

1946 In a 13-6 beating of the Browns at Sportsman's Park, Rudy York becomes the third major leaguer and the second Red Sox player to hit two grand slams in the same game. The Boston first baseman joins Tony Lazzeri (1936, Yankees) and Jim Tabor (1939, Red Sox) in accomplishing the feat.

1947 Jake Jones hits a 60-foot triple in Boston's 4-3 victory over the Browns at Fenway Park. Umpire Cal Hubbard awards the Red Sox first baseman three bases when St. Louis hurler Fred Sanford, fearing the grounder might roll fair, throws his glove at the ball in an effort to keep it foul.

1959 The Continental League is formally announced, with franchises located in Denver, Houston, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York City, and Toronto. The concept of the new major league is the brainchild of William Shea, an attorney who proposed the idea a year after the Giants and Dodgers left New York City to move to the West Coast.

1963 John Bateman's eighth-inning homer at Colt Stadium will be the only run scored in the Mets' 21st consecutive defeat on the road. The 1-0 complete-game decision to Houston is Roger Craig's 16th straight loss, tying Craig Anderson's dubious club record established in the franchise's inaugural season last year.

1964 In the first clash of tenth-place teams in major league history, the Senators prevail, beating the Mets in the Hall of Fame exhibition game, 6-4. The Cooperstown combatants will collectively lose 209 games this season, but Washington will climb out of the cellar to finish ahead of Kansas City.

1964 The Hall of Fame inducts seven new members, swelling the ranks of the 25 year-old institution to 101. The recent inductees include Luke Appling, voted in by the BBWAA, along with spitballers Burleigh Grimes and Urban Faber, pre-1900 era players Tim Keefe and John Montgomery, lifetime .330 hitter Heinie Manush, and skipper Miller Huggins, who were all selected by the 12-man Veterans' Committee in February.

1965 League officials increase the number of foreigners allowed on each Japanese professional team from 2 to 3. The Yomiuri Giants, however, announce their team will have not any foreigners on their roster (this policy lasts ten years until the team signs Davey Johnson.)

1966 Six weeks after the team plays their first game in the Peach State, the Wisconsin Supreme Court overrules a lower court decision by a narrow vote of 4-3, ruling that the state doesn't have the jurisdiction to keep the Braves from moving to Atlanta. Due to the close vote, the state of Wisconsin decides to appeal the majority’s decision to the United States Supreme Court.

1968 Denny McLain earns his 20th victory of the season when he blanks Baltimore at Memorial Stadium, 9-0. The Tiger right-hander is the third pitcher in history to reach the milestone this quickly, with only Rube Marquard (Giants, July 19‚ 1912) and Lefty Grove (A's, July 25‚ 1931) accomplishing the feat earlier in a season.

1968 Although he goes 3-for-5 at the plate in the Yankees' 6-3 victory in Cleveland, Mickey Mantle's lifetime batting average falls below .300 (2734/7926 =.2995), remaining there into his retirement at the end of the season. The future Hall of Fame slugger, who finishes his 18-year tenure in the major leagues with a .298 BA, will often lament in later years that his greatest regret in baseball was not ending his career with a .300 average.

1972 In his managerial debut, Cubs skipper ****** Lockman watches Fergie Jenkins throw a one-hitter to blank the Phillies at Veterans Stadium, 4-0. Willie Montanez's fourth-inning double spoils the Canadian right-hander's bid for a no-hitter.

1975 The Mets release Cleon Jones after suspending him for insubordination. The outfielder from Alabama will not play again this year but will join the White Sox next season.

1978 Light-hitting Indians' second baseman Duane Kuiper becomes one of only three modern major leaguers to hit two bases-loaded triples in one game. The pair of three-baggers helps the Tribe beat the Yankees, 17-5.

1979 On his first day back in a home uniform, eight years after leaving the Expos, Rusty Staub receives the longest standing ovation in franchise history when he pinch hits for Elias Sosa in the bottom of the eighth inning in a 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh. The first-place Montreal club re-acquired Le Grand Orange from the Tigers to come off the bench as an experienced pinch-hitter and to fill in at first base.

1984 Pete Rose passes Ty Cobb as the all-time single leader when he collects his 3,053rd off Steve Carlton in a 6-1 Expo victory over the Phillies. The Montreal switch-hitter, who will also pass the 'Georgia Peach' to become the all-time hit leader, ends his 24-year career with 3215 one-base hits.

1988 Tommy John becomes the first pitcher to commit three errors on one play when he (1) bobbles Jeffrey Leonard’s grounder, and then, in an effort to recover, (2) throws the ball down the right field line that Dave Winfield retrieves and fires home, where the Yankee left-hander cuts it off, (3) relaying the throw wildly to the plate to allow two runs to score. The 45 year-old southpaw’s fourth-inning miscues don't stop him from getting the victory in the Bombers' 16-3 rout of the Brewers in the Bronx.

1989 In the the team’s 10-1 rout of San Francisco, Dale Murphy becomes the 10th major leaguer to collect six RBIs in the same inning when he connects for two three-run round-trippers in the Braves’ ten-run sixth at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. The 33 year-old right fielder also becomes the second player in franchise history to go deep twice in the same frame, joining Robert Lowe, who accomplished the unusual feat in 1884.

1998 Wade Boggs' eighth inning single in the Devil Rays' 11-5 win over Oakland moves him past Babe Ruth and into 33rd place on the career hits list with 2,874. The future Hall of Fame third basemen will end his 18-year career with 3,010 hits, finishing with a .328 lifetime batting average.

1998 Tony Womack of the Pirates establishes a new major league mark by not grounding out into a double play in 888 consecutive at-bats, breaking the record previously established by Dodger outfielder Pete Reiser in 1946.

1998 Sammy Sosa hits his first career grand slam, establishing the mark for most career homers before hitting a grand slam (246). Tomorrow, 'Slamming Sammy' will hit another, becoming the 18th major leaguer to hit a grand slam on consecutive days.

1998 With a three-run blast in the sixth inning, minor leaguer Tyrone Horne completes the first and only home run cycle in a professional baseball game. The Arkansas Travelers' outfielder also slugged a two-run homer in the first inning, a grand slam in the second, as well as a solo shot in the fifth during the 13-4 victory over San Antonio.

2000 Jim Fregosi wins his 1,000th game as a big league skipper when the Blue Jays beat the Mariners, 7-2. The former major league infielder has also managed the Angels, White Sox, and Phillies.

2000 The Rockies and Red Sox complete a seven-player trade. The Red Sox receive pitchers Rolando Arrojo and Rick Croushore, infielder Mike Lansing and an undisclosed amount of cash for second baseman Jeff Frye and pitchers Brian Rose and John Wasdin as well as minor league pitcher Jeff Taglienti.

2005 Ryan Freel becomes first player in the Reds’ 136-year history to steal five bases in a game, including two in the ninth that moves him to third base, where he scores the eventual winning run on Felipe Lopez’s sacrifice fly. The Cincinnati second baseman’s thievery contributes to the team’s 7-6 victory over the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine.

2008 Brad Ziegler sets a major league record by pitching 27 innings without allowing a run from the start of his career. The A's 28 year-old rookie right-hander hurls a scoreless seventh and eighth in Oakland's 6-5 victory over the Rangers to surpass the previous mark of 25 frames established in 1907 by Phillies moundsman George McQuillan.

2009 Josh Willingham becomes just the 13th major leaguer to hit two grand slams in the same game. The 30 year-old outfielder's fifth and sixth-inning bases-loaded home runs set the pace in the Nationals' 14-6 victory over Milwaukee at Miller Park.

2011 For the second straight season, the Cardinals trade a starting outfielder near the trading deadline in an effort to secure more pitching when they trade center fielder Colby Rasmus, along with relievers Trever Miller and Brian Tallet, to the Blue Jays in exchange for Edwin Jackson (acquired from the White Sox a few hours earlier) and relievers Octavio Dotel and Marc Rzepczynski. Last year, the Redbirds dealt right fielder Ryan Ludwick to San Diego in a three-team deal that brought Indian starter Jake Westbrook to St. Louis.

2011 Ervin Santana, facing only two hitters over the minimum, no-hits against the hometown Indians at Progressive Field, 3-1. The Tribe's only run against the Angels' right-hander is the result of a first-inning wild pitch run following an error by shortstop Erick Aybar.

2011 The Mariners snap their franchise-record 17-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory against New York at Yankee Stadium. The team's first win in three weeks comes as a result of Seattle's strong offensive output and Felix Hernandez's seven innings of four hit, one-run ball.

2011 At approximately 2:30 a.m. ET, the Pirates filed a formal complaint with the Commissioner's Office expressing their extreme disappointment by the way its 19-inning game against the Braves ended earlier this morning. The statement shares the organization's dismay of umpire Jerry Meals not seeing the tag made by Michael McKenry three feet in front of home plate that resulted in Atlanta's 4-3 victory at Turner Field.

2014 In front of an enthusiastic Cooperstown crowd of nearly 50,000, White Sox slugger Frank Thomas, left-hander Tom Glavine, right-hander Greg Maddux, and managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa are inducted into the Hall of Fame. Thomas becomes the first player to be enshrined having spent more than half of his time as a designated hitter, and Torre is only Hall of Famer to collect more than 2,000 hits as a player and win more than 2,000 games as a skipper.

I only buy authentics. Usually I buy from MLB Shop when they do 25% off or 30% (I think is only Black Friday and maybe one other day). Modells and Sports Authority will have some random 50% off black friday sales. eBay is flooded with fakes.




Edgar Martinez doesn't belong in the HOF. I love Edgar too, don't think any DH belongs unless he put up historic numbers. Ortiz 10000% does not belong, way too many rumors about him being on that report. Guy is on PEDs and he's a pile of ****.

because he plays for the Red Sox duh

Big Papi only got signed by the Sox because of Pedro lobbying for it when the Twinkies cut him. That worked out well.
Manny went to the Sox since he wanted to play with Pedro.

Gotta say, trading for Petey was one of the best things that franchise has ever done. Not only his personal achievements, but the guys he brought with him later on who made a huge impact.
