Reggie Jackson 1977 WS

Jackson is often remembered for his 3 HR performance in Game 6. He was walked in his first at bat. Then, he hit 3 Consecutive HRs off of 3 different pitchers each on the first pitch. Unbelievable.

What is sometimes forgotten is that in his last at bat in LA in Game five he hit a HR on the first pitch he saw.

So, in the World Series, in his last 4 swings of the bat he hit 4 HRs.

Dizzy Dean Funny Story

In Game 4 of the 1934 WS Dean was tasked to be a pitch runner. While running between 1st and 2nd Dean was hit in the head by Tiger's SS Billy Rogell who was attempting to complete a DP. Dean was knocked out cold by the throw and was carried from the field.

This incident led to the fabled headline in the newspaper the next day: "X-RAYS OF DEAN'S HEAD SHOW NOTHING."

snip:
Trump on Monday said he will sign an executive order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic, an extraordinary move that prompted immediate questions about its timing and scope.

Not protesters, terrorists.

Those astroturf assholes circling state capitols in their jacked-up trucks are terrorists. They are actively promoting the spreading of a biological agent that would endanger the most vulnerable members of our society.

They are potential vectors of a biological agent. Terrorists.

"Capacity" is Dump's Orwellian word about testing

Understand capacity in this way.

Everyone who has a car has the capacity to change a flat tire. But, if you are minus a jack or lug wrench your "capacity" means absolutely nothing.

Exchange jack and lug wrench for swabs and reagent and you are now living in America today.

Fascinating baseball history

The 1922 World Series was between the NY Giants and NY Yankees. Prior to the series beginning the Giants agreed to play a benefit game against the the Baltimore Orioles, then the most powerful minor league team in the country.

As preparation for the WS Ruth decided to play with Giants, his WS opponents.

What did he do? Hit a HR off of future HOFer Lefty Grove.
