    BASEBALL history, facts and figures

    Baseball season is almost here, and I have the fever! I want to start a thread in which we can post about the history, facts and figures of BASEBALL!!
    Join in on this if you wish, give your opinions on the facts given, and please, all trash-talk regarding your teams can go in the MLB 05 thread....anyway, to get things started, something I found today:
    Franchise Facts: The Chicago Cubs from 1876-1889 were the Chicago White Stockings. Also, the Chicago White Sox from 1901-1903 were also called the Chicago White Stockings.
    Can anyone answer this question?: What franchise has been in the same city with their same nickname for the longest?
    Just go for it!

    Without looking anything up I'm gonna say it has to be either the St. Louis Cardinals or Pittsburgh Pirates - something tells me the Pirates might've had a different name early on though, but I can't recall the Cardinals being anything but the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Damn good guessing, but there is a team that has been called the same name even longer.
    The St.Louis Cardinals have been around since 1900, before they were called the St. Louis Perfectos. The Pittsburg Pirates have been around since 1891, they used to be called the Pittsburg Allegheneys from 1887-1890.
    You are close billy!
    I cheated and looked it up!
    Just go for it!

    Well, let's see - the Braves moved from Boston to Milwaukee to Atlanta, plus they had some other nicknames early on
    The Dodgers moved from Brooklyn, plus they had some other nicknames early on
    The Giants moved from New York and I think before that they were the original Baltimore Orioles
    We've already discussed the Cubs, Cardinals and Pirates - that leaves the Reds and the Phillies.
    The Phillies were called the Blue Birds or Blue Jays at some point - it might have been unofficial
    The Reds have been the Red Legs and I believe originally the Red Stockings, but I'm going to go with them.

    Yes, in 1901 the now Yankees franchise was called the Baltimore Orioles. The now Baltimore Orioles franchise in 1901 were called: the Milwaukee Brewers.

    The Yankees franchise came in to power in 1901. And the Pirates this year??? I say look out for the Cubs in the National league. They're curse is about to end too I feel. As for the AL it's always too close of a call. We know for the past 3 years at least it has been at least the Yankees, Twins, and Red Sox who have gone, with Boston getting a world title, and the AL West race is always neck and neck, all 4 of the teams are as good as eachother. I think the AL will win the All Star Game (again) but I think the NL is gonna take the World Series.

    I just want to go on record as saying that I love the New York Yankees. I've loved the Yanks since I was 7 years old, saw my first Yanks game at the Stadium , met Joe Di Maggio at the same game. Now that I'm in texas, I haven't seen them play at Yankee Stadium since I was 10. 24 years later, I'm going back to the stadium next month for game 3 of the opening series against the Red Sox. I love the Yankees. Not just one player, but the organization, the history, the mystique, and oh yeah, the 26 world series championships.

    Default Some Home Run facts:

    Here are some pretty interesting Home Run facts Babe Ruth was the 1st player in baseball history to hit at least 60 HR's in a single season....who was the first to hit 30 or more?
    The first D.H. to hit a home run was Minnesota's Tony Oliva in 1973, anyone remember him?
    Who was the 1st switch hitter to hit a grand slam from both sides of the plate in one game? Serious RBI's!
    Just go for it!
