I feel like someone in your lifetime struck out 513 batters.

Clearly you have me confused with my grandparents, 3 of whom were 10 years old.

Anyway, in 1907, Grover Lowdermilk struck out 465 batters in 397 innings pitching for the Decatur Commodores of the Illinois-Indiana-Iowa League and the Mattoon Giants of the Eastern Illinois League.  Slim was 6-4 190 pounds and was later billed as the next Walter Johnson.  Yes, he was a real person.

Matt Kilroy led his league with 513 KO's.  Next closest that season was 499 KO's by Toad Ramsey.

Why so much background noise on the radio broadcast? It's not like there's ever much of a crowd in Oakland.

This is so boring I’m instead watching my son play video games on Xbox live (which has incidentally been down for hours). The new Blair Witch game is pretty cool, as is The Man of Medan.

I've got the Tigers game on, but my main focus tonight is on transitioning into a VSCO Girl.

If you’re successful call me. We have baseball in common.

my problem was/is more that I have zero difficulty staying up that late and a strong inclination to do so. but I really shouldn't.

I try to be in bed by 10pm, but it's a Friday night and the Tigers are in extra innings, so ****, I'm throwing caution to the wind.

If the Tigers pull this out, I'm going to go out on the streets and set fire to either a taxi or a cop car, whichever I see first. Vancouver doesn't have Uber (!!) or else I'd burn one of those too.
