    My father actually asked me who "number 42" on the Orioles was during the game yesterday. I had to remind him that they were all wearing Jackie Robinson's number.

    I know we're still extremely early in the season, and all of this could change in a heartbeat... but it's a little strange having the Cubs, Indians, Giants, & Blue Jays all with a losing record.

    CB Bucknor has to be the worst umpire in MLB at calling balls and strikes. In the 4th inning Jayson Werth took all 6 pitches he saw, all outside, and was called out on strikes.

    Trivia question: on this date in 1999, who hit 2 grand slams in the same inning?

    I finally gave up and had to resort to Google for this. :oops: I was thinking it might be one of the Killer B's of the Houston Astros that year...but not even close.

    Keeping lips sealed in case anyone else wants to take a stab at it.

    Yeah, he's not exactly a household name. That was his only really good season.

    I didn't get it. That's a pretty amazing feat!

    Yes it was! I vaguely remember hearing about it (that was during my senior year in high school), but had completely forgotten what team, and who it was. As @Lucky said, that was the only time this player made headlines of any significance.

    Not to mention, this was the only time in history that two grand slams in the same inning were pitched out of the Park. :cautious:

    It's strange how so many baseball stadiums are named after Koreans.

    Most notably Kim Jong-Fenway and Son Ye-Wrigley, but most kids today wouldn't know who they are.
