  1. http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/askba/264417.html June 30,2007 What is the hitting streak record for the entire minors? I know Nationals outfielder Brandon Watson just broke the Triple-A International League mark with 43, but didn't Joe DiMaggio have a 61-game hit streak in 1933? Is that the real record, or is there a longer streak? Steve Haws Las Vegas Before Watson set the IL record with 43 and Yankees third baseman Mitch Hilligoss broke the low Class A South Atlantic League mark with a 38-game skein this spring, we hadn't had a long minor league hitting streak in years. Joey Cora had a 37-game streak in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League in 1989, and the last guy to top 40 was Howie Bedell at 43 games in the Triple-A American Association in 1961. DiMaggio did have a PCL-record 61-game streak in 1933, his first full year in pro ball after he made a three-game debut the season before. DiMaggio batted .340 for the San Francisco Seals and led the league with 169 RBIs in 187 games. But his skein—"skein" is one of those great Sporting News words that doesn't get used often enough by baseball writers these days.—is only the second-longest in minor league history. In 1919, Joe Wilhoit put together a 69-game streak for Wichita in the Class A Western League. He batted .505 (151-for-299) during his run, and won the league batting title at .422. His performance earned him another shot in the majors, and he went 6-for-18 with the Red Sox to improve his career big league stats to .257/.323/.321 with three homers and 73 RBIs in 283 games. He never played in the majors again.

    Radar guns

    Since a new one is so expensive, this site is probably for educational purposes only: http://www.stalkerradar.com/index.shtml I wanted one also, but unless I knew who the seller was, I was hesitant to buy a used unit. Maybe someone in the MTS family will help. Be prepared for the Jugs or Stalker opinions, along with those who claim to be a "thigh man".
  4. Sorry to be a distraction, but i got my stats from http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?t=t_ibp&cid=512 I am not smart enough to engage you guys. I tried. Adios.
  5. Toledo has played 103 games, Red has played in 99, 354AB. Mike Hessman, who is playing tonight in Chicago has 129K in 354AB. Oh, sure, Hessman has a dinger or two more.
  6. If it doesn't run out of steam, the storm drenching Plant City appears to be heading toward Joker. http://www.wunderground.com/radar/radblast.asp?zoommode=pan&prevzoom=zoom&num=0&frame=0&delay=50&scale=0.250&noclutter=1&ID=TBW&type=N0R&showstorms=0&lat=0&lon=0&label=you&map.x=400&map.y=240&scale=0.250&centerx=260&centery=390&showlabels=1&rainsnow=0&lightning=0&lerror=20&num_stns_min=2&num_stns_max=9999&avg_off=9999

  8. Not like there is anything wrong with that.
  9. MH is 2-2 plus a walk against AC. Tampa is up 4-3 after 5 of 7. Sleeth pitched shutout ball through 4. Unfortunately, he came out in the 5th. Charged with all 4, all ER.

  11. Tampa Yankees have thrown 2 no-no's in 5 days, both 7 inning games. Final TY 4 LFT 0 Box: http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?gid=2007_07_22_tbyafa_lakafa_1&t=g_box&did=milb

  13. Can't recall those names being used. Sergio either. Or Dick.
