On this day in history


On this day in history

Hall of famer Walter johnson in 1907 makes his major league debut at the age of 19. The first hit he allows in his carreer is a bunt single by Ty Cobb. Would love to travel back in time and see those two face off https://www.baseball-reference.com/..

Did you also notice there were no earned runs in that game? Interesting... I'd imagine that was fairly common back in those days.... I'm with you, going back in time to see even one game during that era would be amazing!

Re: On this day in history

I was there, and the Big Train was NOT happy with Cobb- something about violating the unwritten rules of baseball with the bunt attempt...
