    “Surprisingly, I don't miss it. I've come out of retirement two times to fill in for a team that needed a player so bad or they were going to forfeit, but after pulling my hamstring in my last game, it was clear father time had claimed another victim.” When you get to a certain age, you have to learn where the line is to keep you from pulling a hamstring or calf muscle. You can run at a certain speed but if you accelerate too fast, you’re a goner. Despite my inability to hit a hardball, I was (and still am, sort of) a pretty good slow pitch softball player. Once my kids came to watch me play and I came up with the bases loaded and crushed a ball over the LF’s head. That was great, except that I pulled a calf muscle charging out of the batter’s box. I managed to limp my way to 3B on what surely would have been a grand slam. I kept playing, and lo and behold the bases were loaded my next time up. I hit a long liner that perfectly bisected LF and CF and kept rolling. I’m limping along, but my biggest problem is there’s a woman ahead of me on the bases who didn’t know what to do, so I’m having to lag behind her. As she finally heads towards home, I head to third and by now a relay throw is coming in there. It sails over the head of the 3B and I hobble home. Just after I touch home plate and peel off behind the backstop, my 6/7 year old daughter leaps into my arms and says “Daddy, you’re amazing! You’re the best dad in the whole world!!!” If I had died just then, I would have died a very happy man. Of course, at this point I had to keep playing, even though my leg was a wreck. Later in the game I was playing 1B, the other team had a runner on 3B and the hitter hit a slow chopper towards me. I charged it but the catcher had wandered off so the runner headed for home. I raced him there and managed to tag him just before reaching home, but further pulled my calf in the process. For the next three days, I had to use a cane to walk, and for more than a year, I could feel that calf muscle threatening to pull again even when I just chased my kids around the back yard. But it was worth it for that great moment with my daughter — who by the way doesn’t remember it at all.

    Obviously everyone on the Hangout is a baseball fan, and I know some have played up to the minor leagues, but I thought it would be interesting to hear about everyone's baseball "careers". Did you stop in Little League, JV, high School, college, pros? Did you play men's baseball as an adult? What were your top moments that you can remember?

    In 1880 the average batting average of the 55 qualifiers was .256, and the standard deviation was 0.037. In 1893 the average was .290 and the standard was still 0.037 In 1941 the average was .282 and the standard deviation .033. In 2000 the average was .282 and the standard deviation 0.028. In 2019 the average was .272 and the standard deviation was .027. That may not seem like so much of a difference, but George Gore was 2.8 standard deviations above the (qualifier) average when he hit .360 in 1880. Ted Williams was 3.8 when he hit .401, but he was a freak. Tim Anderson was 2.3 last year. Since the peak of the 1990s average have fallen about 20 points, while the spread continues to tighten up as it has since the beginning of time. As players get better the distance between best and worst gradually shrinks. To hit .400 today a batter would be almost five standard deviations above the qualifier average. I'm reasonably sure that's never happened. Hugh Duffy was less than three when he hit .440 in '94. Tony Gwynn was only at 3.48 when he hit .394 in 1994, and that was in a short season. Just hitting .350 today is almost three standard deviations from the qualifier average. Yaz was about 2.6 above the AL mark in '68 when he hit .301.

    The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations (IHME) has put out a tool that estimates hospital resources - beds, ICU beds, invasive ventilators per day through the summer. It shows peak use on April 15 with a more gradual decline through mid June. It also shows estimated deaths per day. They loaded it on April 1 and will update on April 4. Based on JHU data, the number of deaths yesterday were slightly less than IHME’s low end estimate. This assumes full social distancing through May.

    Since we're bored I'll share another story. The year was 2005 and I had just returned from spending a year in Afghanistan and was happy to be back in Hawaii with my family. Obviously I had not played in over a year when I found a local men's 18 and over team looking for players. With the itch to play again and a desire to try out my new "PRK fixed" eyes, I came out of "forced retirement/military service" at 35 years old. The team ended up being pretty good even though we ran out of pitching occasionally and I had to pitch, which is never a good long term fix for any team (haha). I mostly played outfield and some second base for this team and we ended up in the playoffs. Even though I was one of the older players on the team, I typically hit leadoff and was having a pretty good year hitting well over .350 with an on base percentage close to .500 (I walked a lot and rarely struck out). Let's fast forward to the semi-finals game with the winner getting a chance to play under the lights in downtown Honolulu on this beautifully manicured field. Down by two in the bottom of the 6th inning (we played 7 inning games), with runners on 1st and 2nd and two outs, I drive the ball to right center, knocking in both runs to tie the game while ending up on 3rd after a play at the plate. Feeling fast, and perhaps all hyped up after my game tying triple, I noticed the left-handed pitcher was not paying any attention to me at third. I kept faking like I would steal home and would have to stop myself because I realize I was almost half way down the line and no one on that team was saying anything about me. So that's when I decided I was going to do it. I had tried to steal home since Pony League ball when was 15 years old, but dammit, there I went. Head down, arms pumping, I knew I was going to steal home and we would be ahead with just an inning to go. With about 15 feet to go and before I could start to slide, I saw the catcher stand up and get ready to catch the ball. We had a no contact rule so as he caught the ball, I decided to try and reach my foot out to touch the plate before he could tag me. Unfortunately for me, I was running at full speed and when my foot landed on the side of the plate and in the dirt, my cleats caught and my momentum twisted my knee as I fell face first into the dirt. As I fell, I felt one of the worse pains in my life as it felt like someone had just chopped my leg of at the knee. My teammates eventually helped my off the field and we actually ended up winning the next inning anyways so we were heading to the Championship. Even though it was my right knee, I drove myself home, but made the mistake of not going straight to the hospital. After an awful painful night on the couch (so I could keep my leg straight and on ice) my wife had to enlist me neighbor to help me to the car so she could take me to the Hospital. My leg was so swollen they couldn't do an MRI, but the doctor was pretty sure I tore my meniscus and most likely my ACL. He gave me some pain meds, and told me to come back for an MRI in a week when the swelling went down. So here's my dilemma. We had this championship game to play and I wanted to play. The championship game was two days later and I couldn't put any weight on my leg so it looked bleak. Luckily for me, two days later I was able to walk on it and I even tried to jog in a straight line which I did with tolerable pain levels. I show up and convinced the manager I could DH and then he could use a courtesy runner if I get on. He kinda looked at me like I was nuts, but I showed him that I could run at about 1/3 speed down the line and took batting practice to show that I could hit on it. I just hid the excruciating pain when I pushed off my back leg (haha). In my mind, my knee was already torn up so screw it, it was just pain. I think I took 1600MG of Motrin to try and dull it some. So sure enough, he lets me play and I end up going 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs, and even convinced him to let me play an inning at 2B after the fill in made two dumb plays that cost us runs. That was really stupid because I tried to go back and catch a popup and thought someone had shot me in the knee again. We end up winning the championship by a run, and a few months later I was in the operating room getting my Meniscus and ACL fixed. It was also the last time I even even thought about stealing home again!

    Played in little league and in high school. Unlike some of you incomplete players who were all-hit or all-glove, I was remarkably consistent in all aspects of my game. That is to say, I was awful. Like historically awful. Hidden in RF and the first pitch of the game becomes a routine popup that bounces off the heel of my glove ? Check. Take strike three looking with a full count, bases loaded, final inning after rallying from five runs down only to lose by one? Check. Chase countless balls to the fence because I can't ever correctly decide to stretch from 1B or come off the bag? Check. Yup, Coach always knew EXACTLY what he could rely on me for every day. As an ongoing tribute to my consistency - to this day, I'm nearly 50 and just as left-handed as the first day I picked up a bat.

    A game that was big in my memory was Hoyt Wilhelm’s no hitter against the despised Yankees on 20 Sep 1958. The Yanks went on to win the WS that year and the O’s finished with a losing record for their 5th straight season since returning to B-town. It was a cool and dreary day with drizzle in the air. My 15 year old buddy and I were hanging out doing whatever 15yr olds did in those days. Finally went inside and turned on the radio to catch the game. It was the 8th and the O’s were winning 1-O on a Gus Triandos homer. His 30th of the season to tie the ML record for homers by a catcher. Finally figured out Hoyt was pitching a no no. He got the first two batters out in the 9th and then Hank Bauer attempted to lay down a bunt, but it went foul. Boo’s from the crowd. Bauer popped out to end the game and like that, there was some hope for O’s fans. Took another 8 seasons, but this offered Hope! Thanks, Hoyt. PS: Hoyt 8K and 2BB, first Oriole no no in 60 years, would be 45 yrs before Yanks would be no hit again. Hoyt pitched in bigs until he was 49. Gus hated catching him. Here is a good article on the game: https://sabr.org/gamesproj/game/september-20-1958-orioles-knuckleballer-hoyt-wilhelm-no-hits-yankees

    I was thinking a couple of days ago - and obviously, it'd never work - how cool it'd be for MASN to re-air the entire '12 season, syncing it with the same schedule/date; only difference being that every game would start at 7 pm (with maybe Sunday games moved up to 1 or 4 pm).

    Some plays I’d like to witness by the O’s: 1. A straight steal of home. I’ve seen a couple of double steals, but I’ve never seen an Oriole just make the mad dash and get away with it. 2. An unassisted triple play. Ron Hansen did it for the O’s about 60 years ago. Time for another. I didn’t see that one.

    Turning to hitters: SAM BOWENS was also a 1964 rookie flash with his 22 homers and .263/.323/.453/.776, 114 OPS+. I rooted loyally for him during his remaining seasons, during which he barely batted above .200 only once: .210 on the '66 team.

    Here's a much larger picture so anyone can check. No cases in Franklin County or Washington County, MD. Maybe a couple in Adams County. So I'm still fairly safe. Only been out for groceries beer and tobacco. Just saying... Tried to order some (TO DIE FOR) Ham and bean soup from a local restaurant yesterday. Got a busy signal for 10 minutes and gave up. Have part of the stuff I need to make my own but the grocery store has ZERO dried beans! A few bags of chick peas and black eyed peas. NOTHING else. right click>View Image>click to zoom

    (reposted from 2018 thread) This is a cool thread..... Played varsity at Hueneme High School, Oxnard, California in 1980, Terry Tackett was the coach, father of the O's own Jeff Tackett. Mark Berry, Reds coach was also on that team. Tall, lean, threw hard, decent curve, questionable command. We had a player on our team all the scouts were out to see, John Cox. However, he kept getting shelled and I would come in to clean up. Normally the scouts would vanish when he came out of the game, but one, a bird dog for the Brewers, stuck around and was drinking beers in brown paper bags with my Dad. Scout ended up writing me up and I got drafted before I graduated High School. (Note: John Cox went on to play at Cal, where he was a teammate of Bryan Pryce, recently fired manager of the Reds. I got to know Bryan at several of John Rubinow's ProBall camps. Good dude.) Anyway, Brewers offered a contract of no bonus money, $500/month, plus room and board on the road, Butte Montana Pioneer League. Ended up going to Ventura Junior College (arrived the year after Brook Jacoby left to the Braves), thinking I'd dominate and raise my draft stock. Instead, pitched marginally, pitched for money in a weekend semi-pro league and shredded my shoulder pitching too many innings. Played some softball, etc. until 2001, found an Ad in North County San Diego Newspaper for the Mens Senior Baseball League (MABL/MSBL), and decided to make a comeback in a 35+ league. Had so much fun at the MSBL World Series in Phoenix that year, decided to get rotator cuff surgery so I could pitch without pain. 2004 World Series, we lost in the playoffs to a team from Tucson with Jack Howell, who went on to win the 35+ Mountain Division. (Our team was Dream Foundation / North County Padres) 2005, we had a loaded team (I managed)... Had an ex-major leaguer who came up with the Phillies and was minor-league outfielder drafted by the Rockies and turned into a pitcher, Mike Farmer. His first Major League start (and first major league hit) came against/off Greg Maddux. (1996). We also had a former Mariners AAA pitcher named Vic Martin, who had absolutely pin-point control. Our shortstop was Jeff Bonchek, who had played A ball for the Indians. We ended up winning the 35+ Mountain that year. The next year, with much the same cast, we won the 35+ Wood American division, so I have 2 MSBL rings. Retired a few years later when I saw a video tape of myself pitching. Ugh. Sorry for the long post. Got going and couldn't stop!

    The last time I played I was an emergency fill-in on my son's fall ball team in Harford County. Only 8 guys showed up and they dragged me out to right field, where I made the most embarrassing attempt at catching a fly ball in athletic history. I made up for it somewhat in my first at bat. There was a huge hole between first and second and I aimed a dribbler over there. Still don't understand how the first-baseman never got to it, but I ended up with a single. Somehow, I made it to second base, where I had to dive back to the bag to avoid being picked off. Wow, did that hurt. I shortened my lead so I wouldn't have to do that again and then scored on a solid single. I was 43-years old and hadn't played ball since my softball days in Central Park 20 years earlier (I was a very good 3B). I needed oxygen. My next at bat the first pitch was right at my head. I got out of the way and, after striking out, found someone to take my place. So ended my "career."

    I only played through 7th grade. The highlight of my career was the first game that season. I was playing LF and batting 9th, clearly the worst hitter in our starting lineup and grateful I’d been named a starter. The opposing pitcher retired our first 8 hitters and then I came up. The count quickly got to 0-2, but on the next pitch I got plunked on the arm and that ignited a big rally in a game we eventually won. Yep, that HBP was the highlight of my pathetic baseball career. I did get a couple of hits but batted well under .200 and eventually lost my starting spot. Here’s a thread from a couple years ago where I ran a poll on how high a level of baseball OHers had played: https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/33600-what-was-the-highest-level-of-baseball-that-you-played/&tab=comments#comment-2400593

    I mentioned somewhere that OOTP21 has a new 3D ballpark creator. One of my dreams has always been to accurately model Union Park, the home of the 1890s Orioles. There have been many issues with that, mainly that there are very, very few photographs of the inside of the park. The common one is linked here, from the big late-September 1898 pennant race deciding game with Boston. Luckily, a site called Deadballbaseball has a Sanborn fire insurance map of the area around the park, complete with stands and fences. From that and the photograph (you can just make out the LF foul pole, which helps anchor all the other measurements) I was able to use some calipers and drafting tools to determine the fence distances. Green Cathedrals listed the LF line as 300', RF as 350'. My little drawing matched that very closely. As far as I know, nobody ever has had complete dimensions of the place, at least not in 100+ years. But now we know: RF: 350' Angle just past RF: 390' Straightaway RC: 371' CF: 398' Bend in deep LC: 415' Z bend in straightaway LF: 387/395' Deepest part of the LF bleachers: 365' LF line: 300' Home to the backstop: 46' I know this is pretty obscure, but as someone who's studied the NL Orioles for many years this is a big thing. Now I just need to get the stadium generator to work in OOTP and I can have some games in a park that was torn down in 1904.

    I am looking forward to the first "big" Oriole signing...and hoping it isn't followed by internet pictures of the lad's High School Prom...in 2008.

    And if you really want some insight into the depths of my madness, I'm in the midst of a project to fix the ancient history of the Continental League. When I discovered OOTP in 2000 I imported the CBL, but due to obscure technical reasons I couldn't bring in all the history. When I go to the history tabs everything is complete from 2000-on, but pre-1999 is kind of a mess. I'm trying to import hundreds upon hundreds of old players so that they appear in team histories and leaderboards using text/spreadsheet imports/exports. It'll probably take many, many work-days to complete. All for a league that never really existed except in my head. Perfect for a lazy corona virus telework month.

    The Tettleton trade was one of the worst in team history but has been overshadowed by the trade for Davis. They traded a switch-hitting catcher with power for a pitcher recovering from arm problems. OBP wasn't valued as much then -- Tettleton walked a lot and was way more valuable than what they got for him.

    It is NOT corona free. 7,447 confirmed cases and 150 deaths as of 3/31. But, thanks for the disinformation.
