World Series

Who stole home twice in the World Series?

Bob Meusel Stole Home base twice in World Series Play. Hopes this helps:-) YRL to the page where the answer was found will follow. Left Field: Bob Meusel He was the tallest of the 1927 Yankees (6-3), but Bob Meusel was dwarfed by the more famous members of Murderers' Row. With names like Ruth and Gehrig on the roster, it's easy to see why the gangly left fielder rarely comes to mind when the subject of one of the greatest teams in the history of baseball comes up. Although the Californian known as "Long Bob" posted modest numbers during his six World Series appearances - a .225 average with nearly as many whiffs (24) as he had hits (29), Meusel laid waste to pitching during the regular season, hitting a career .309 during 11 big league seasons (all with the Yankees except the last in 1930 with Cincinnati). And Meusel was known for having a bit of pepper in his personality, as well. He went on a barnstorming tour in 1921 with Babe Ruth - against commissioner Kenesaw Landis' wishes - which landed both a 39-day suspension. During the 1924 season Meusel charged Detroit's Bert Cole and incited one of the worst brawls in major league history - fans, police and players tangled for 30 minutes. Meusel and Ruth were fined $100 and $50, respectively. During the historic '27 season, Meusel swiped second, third and home - all in one game. Twice in World Series play, Meusel stole home successfully. He was often labeled as "grim" and unpopular by the press, in stark contrast to Irish, his NL star brother, but he accomplished what Dave Winfield never did in pinstripes - win a World Series. You can find this at http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/story/100764p-91253c.html jackie robertson Jackie Robinson stole home only once during world series play. It came in the 8th inning of game 1 on Sept 28th, 1955. Meusel stole home in the 1921 and 1928 World Series.

Why is the distance from homeplate to the pitcher's mound the same for a league of 15 to 17-year-olds as it is in MLB?

Homeplate DistanceI remember making the leap to the larger field and at first it feels pretty big, but basically at the age of 15 the kids generally do outgrow the Little League fields, catchers CAN make the throw to second and the shortstops and third basemen can make the throw to first. By this point, most of the kids who are still playing are interested baseball players so the pool of talent is much lower but the overall level of talent is much higher. Chances are a 15 year old kid playing on the larger field has played since he was six.

Also 14 year old pitcher regularly throw over 55 mph which on a Little League Field is VERY fast

He is right. At age 14, from a little league distance it would be very dangerous. (They actually have two different distances, high school is the same distance but Seniors isn't.)

The hitters are also better in the bigs.

Like for me, at 13 years old I throw 72, from a little league distance that could injure a kid.

At 13 I was 4-10 80lbs., but some friends were 6-4 255, poney league bases were 75' This was a lot of fun!

Why do college players have one or two pieces of tape wrapped around the lower barrel of the bat?

I play division 1 baseball and I know many umpires make the tape mandatory because pine tar is sometimes used on the bats and can only be used so far up the bat. The tape is measured to that maximum height as a guide to enforce this rule I also play Division 1 baseball and the tape is used for pine tar limitations, but most players do that just for the look. It's just one of those trends in baseball that goes on and on. Some people have one strip and others could have multiple strips. It's more of a trend than a need.

Josh Gibson of the Negro leagues. No. 20 was awesome, better than Ruth. If you mean MLB then obviously it was Aaron, and is now Bonds.

Sorry missed "college". That would be the ex-Texas Ranger, Pete Incaviglia with 100 HR.

Can a college baseball player use either a wood or an aluminum bat while playing a game?

Answer

Yes, they can use either. I heard (on the radio) a game once (Texas vs ?) in which ONLY wooden bats were used. This was because one of the two teams had not gotten their insurance policy in place before game time, and did not want to run the risk of injury to the players. Aluminum bats, you see, drastically increase the speed of a batted ball. If the ball is hit back to the pitcher as a line drive, he rarely has time to protect himself, and can be seriously injured. Wooden bats, on the other hand, are "dead", meaning that they absorb a lot of the momentum of the pitched ball, so that the batted ball does not have as much speed.

But, from a practical standpoint, except for unusual situations like the one mentioned above, everyone almost always uses an aluminum bat. Because you get more power. Because they are lighter and easier to swing. And because everyone else is using them, and if you don't, you're putting yourself at a disadvantage.

So, if aluminum bats are dangerous, why does the NCAA allow players to use them?

College baseball suffers from an extreme lack of fans. In football, there's very little difference between the number of fans at the pro level and the college level, and in some cases, college teams have a bigger following than pro teams. In basketball, there's a little difference, with pro teams edging out college teams. But in baseball, the difference between pro and college fandom is HUGE. Major League stadiums hold 40-60,000 fans. The BIGGEST college stadiums seat less than 10,000, and most seat less than 2,000. Television? Every major league baseball game is available on SOME channel, but televised college games are few and far between. Even the College World Series is available only on ESPN2, the network that is "PROUD to bring you the X-Games". What a joke! Most college games can only be found on the radio. But even then, if your school's basketball team is still playing when baseball season starts, and a basketball game is being played at the same time as a baseball game, the sports network for your school will play the basketball game.

I don't know why college baseball is so unpopular, because personally, I like college baseball more than pro (and a lot more than basketball at either level). But the point is, right or wrong, not many people enjoy watching, or listening to, college baseball.

But even among the limited fan base of college baseball, most fans enjoy offense a lot more than defense. These fans would be bored stiff by a shut-out, and would put a bullet in their brains if they had to endure a no-hitter. They want to see RUNS, particularly HOME RUNS! And the NCAA recognizes this. So they allow aluminum bats, which give a huge advantage to the batters, resulting in more offense, and MORE HOME RUNS! If they didn't, college baseball fandom would shrink to the point that women's tennis would be more popular.

Why can't baseball pitchers throw every day?

baseball pitchersbecause it isn't natural to our body. our body wasn't made for our arms to constantly reach past the height of our shoulders with such force.

Like body building, most people need 3,4 sometimes even 5 days to recover from such stress. After the game hard pitchers usually ice there arm/shoulder to reduce the inflammation, thus, starting up recovery. Nolan Ryan, when be came up people said he'll be lucky to pitch like that 2 years. So there are some freaks out there!

Boise State lacks a sound educational system as well as a collegiate baseball team. Their primary focus is to have the best football team in the absolute worst division in collegiate football.

Athletic Coaches and Managers

What is the role of the bench coach in baseball?

Each manager uses the bench coach differently but, generally speaking, the bench coach is an assistant manager. Before the game he takes some of the simple responsibilities, such as filling out lineup cards, away from the manager so the manager can meet with the media and talk to players. During the game the bench the manager will usually talk strategy with the bench coach. The bench coach may chart where pitched balls are hit, set the defensive positioning for a particular batter, and give signs to fielders on what plays to run depending on where a ball is hit.
