That is a pretty cool story...I just marvel at the way the guys in the early 1900s pitched so many games (because they didn't have anyone else to pitch other than one other guy) - 40 wins in a year! 8-o

Cobb's top hitting performance is just crazy good other than the 8 HR's...but I think in those days the parks were substantially larger (or something). The top HR hitters were in the low teens (I think).

Ellis Burks - #3 hitting performer in the 90s...hehe! :-b

Forgive my stupidity, but I did not realize Rickey Henderson had 130 SB in a year...good lord. B-)

guys lead the league in homeruns with less then 10 in before 1920. They called it the deadball era because...they used a baseball that was not as tightly wound thus couldn't be hit as far.

It wasn't just that it was tightly wound, it was barely a baseball sometimes. I can't remember where I read it, but I think that one game in... maybe 1899? They actually had to use a rock for a game because they ran out of "baseballs". 8-o

Cobbs 8 HRs aren't to exciting, but I bet you will take his 83!!! SB to go with that 0.420 AVE.

How do you like Hack Wilson's 191 RBIs and 0.356 AVE
:-°

Ed Walsh: 40 wins, 6 saves, and 269Ks!! O:-)

Fun article.

Out of the all 1990s team I only owned one of the guys...
