The year that every American car went from single headlights to double was 1958.  Later, I bought a 59 Ford as a used car.  Therefore, I think that oncoming car on the road is a 59 Ford, but could be a 58.

The red car about 3 cars down from the camera with the gull wing design is a 59 Chevy, I think.  The blue car closest to the camera is a 56 Chevy, I think.

spot on - 3 for 3. Grey oncoming definitely 59. We had a '58, the headlights were in a raised curve above the hood ( bezel guaranteed to rust through in 24 months!). Not sure on the car parked between the Ford and Chevy. I'd put my guess on 55 buick wagon or a 57 Pontiac because of the big bumper tits. Sadly the '59 Chevy is not the classic flattop with the wrap around rear windshield. Some say the 59 Caddy was the most over the top styling of the era, but I'd take that 59 flattop chevy. It was crazy from every angle. Our HS car pool was a 59 chevy, a 60 Ford Sunliner(?), a '66 impala supersport and a Beetle - one from before they had a heater blower!

The middle car is definitely a Buick. And the ‘Tits’ were known as Dagmars.

You guys are showing your age! 😀

LOL - Car identification was a significant life skill that was necessary any young male to be able to demonstrate between about 1950 and 1970. It was a unique era in that regard. High quality import competition and the first oil embargo pretty much put an end to it by starting the drive in body design to today's more boring but efficient convergences.

I get that... I work for a chevy dealer and these cars today are plastic bubbles.

Really interested to see how Mize does. Hopefully he is working through some spring training mechanical issues.

I would think the bottom line for any pitcher is that if you can still hit 95+ with command you can be successful, if maybe not win a Cy Young,  even if you can't spin your FB 3000 rpm (tho I see Rick Porcello waving 'Hi'!). The trick is for he and Tigers to settle quickly on what kind of pitcher he needs to be trying to be so he can stop tinkering and start getting the reps he needs doing what he needs to do. He's already behind by too many IP.

I'm guessing someone he was around tested positive. I'm guessing if it was him, we'd have heard. He'll just have to take a couple tests to prove he doesn't have it and his next start may only be pushed back a few days. Hopefully. 

Out of MLB's latest round of testing, 15,000 tests, only 1 positive. A 0.007% rate. That's pretty damn great.

This has nothing to do with this game.  I just liked the photo.  

 

This Twitter account looks like it could be a wonderful time sucks.

I bought a book, gosh, 25 to 30 years ago?  It is called Green Cathedrals.  It was all about every ballpark used to house a major league game.  National League, American League, Negro Leagues, Federal League.  Any stadium used for a regular season game, even if was just as a barnstorming tour or blue law site for regular season games, was noted.  Some had a good chunk of detail (attendance & dimensions throughout the years, notable stadium related occurrences, etc), or maybe just a quick paragraph (typicality the much older parks that were used only once or a handful of times).

It was only 15 years ago!  I have that book too.

ARGH! W. Castro swings and misses on a 3-1 FB right down the heart of the plate, then takes another almost in the same spot for called 3rd.  Cut him!

And then Jones is caught stealing at 3rd. So from 2 on no out to 2 out one on and Cabrera K's for the 3rd out on 3 pitches. Inning wasted in record time!

No, I’m very certain I had it in the 20th century. Perhaps you have an updated publication?

I just retrieved my copy from the basement.  Of course, it’s still packed inside the tote that it was packed into when we moved to this house over 5 years ago.  I guess I could have gone through some of those during the past year. 🤣

Anyway, the copy that I have notes Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Cleveland Stadium as “current” ballparks.  So yours might be an updated version of mine.

And Mize gives up a HR on his 2nd high fastball attempt. And it wasn't like he missed low, it was high out of the zone. Do these guys really know what they are doing with him?

EDIT: Mize K's the second hitter on a well located called FB

Then a groundout,

Yeah, you are  right.  The original was written in 1993.
