Much better

quote:

15,270 fans stuffed inside Cleveland’s League Park to watch one of the greatest ensembles of talent ever to play on the same baseball field. One of those spectators was eighteen-year old George Sisler, who had traveled to Cleveland to visit his uncle and take in his first major league baseball game. Four years later, Sisler would make the St. Louis Browns and begin a career that would eventually land him in the Hall of Fame. He said of the game: “When I saw those great players, the first big leaguers I ever had seen, I made up my mind I was going to be a big league player and, I might confess, I wanted to be on the Cleveland team.”

SMOKY JOE WOOD
1908-22
Pitched BoSox to WS title 1912 with a 34-5 record
like the Babe, switched careers, became an outfielder for the Indians & was starting OF on their 1920 WS team in which Stan Coveleski won 3 games for the Tribe
tore it up at the plate right to the end -- final year, a .297 BA in 505 AtBats

I'm a computer on this stuff (less his final-year stats) -

Yet, of all the legendary players in that photo, Smoky Joe, seen here at Fenway in 1962 w/Bill Momboquette (w/cig in hand - love it), is not in the HOF -- surprising

Only three full years as a pitcher; two full years as a batter. Not enough to make the HOF. Probable rotator cuff did Smokey Joe in

Probably the only major league pitcher with 300 wins (or 200 or 100) who walked to the mound looking like a Middle School Student who constantly got the **** beat out of him. Unreal talent and god knows without the strike his 1995 season would have been for the ages.

I had a discussion the other day about the greatests ever of various positions. When we discussed pitchers, we had a lenghty talk about who we thought were the best we've seen. While I am old enough to have seen Palmer, Carlton and Seaver, they were way past their primes.

So the best I ever saw were Roger Clemens (say what you want about him) and Greg Maddux. His ability to master the strikezone was amazing.

The great Iowa wrestler (haven't looked it up )




Along w/Bruno, Victor was as real as it got in pro rasslin -- great athlete, did all the great flying moves etc -- He & Haystacks Calhoun Were The World's Greatest Tag Team
but Victor was great & could've given real wrestlers like Dan a match based on athleticism/competitive spirit/ w/right training & so forth.....

Stahle (stay-lee) Vincent was a fine running back at Rice University from '69-'71. After rushing for 944 yards his Senior year and graduating with Honors, he was taken in the 3rd round NFL draft by Pittsburgh (defensive back)

Stahle was reportedly having a great training camp, looked to cement a roster spot, but ruptured an Achilles tendon and never played a down in the NFL.

Who is number 15? I think he was the backup QB but I can't remember his name.

You mean Morrall (haha)




George Sisler (l) & Rogers Hornsby

Philly Thought they had it good in 1928 w/Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, All Simmons, Eddie Collins et al those living legends(combined, nearly 100 years of experience) in town

But the Rajah, & George Sisler -- the only 2 players to hit over .400 same season (1922) -- & their paths crossed in Beantown for 1 season, in 1928 -- for the NL Boston Braves

but they both spent most of their careers in St. Louis, Hornsby w/Cards, Sisler Browns -- & if there aren't statues of these 2 greats alongside Gibson, Musial, Brock et al, there should be
the Rajah, 1915-37, .358 lifetime BA, HOF 1942
