As expected, the Angels went on to take the game, but as the starting pitcher, I was ineligible to receive credit for the win, having failed to make the required five-inning minimum. Today, I find it revealing when I check the record books and see that I pitched in 40 games in 1962, starting 29 of them and finishing with a record of 8 wins and 9 loses. For the year, I worked 176 innings, which was the third highest total on Rigney 's pitching staff. Yet, I was allowed to pitch only one complete game the entire season; dubious numbers for a guy who was the number one starter in
The third base coach was furious he was in the umpire’s face saying that he just wanted the game to end so he call the kid out. The play itself wasn’t the really cool part, it was that our team had pulled together and beat the team that had knocked us out of the tournament before in extra innings on a lucky hit. None of us knew it yet, but this was going to be a great year. We were almost like
The scent of hot dogs, the crack of the ball off the bat, and umpires hollering “strike” are just a few memories one will have after attending a baseball game. America’s game is filled with many sensory details, which is why it is so appealing to many spectators, as well as players. The massive fences in the outfield seem daunting up close; the players seem to whip the ball effortlessly, but with extraordinary speed. Spectator’s noses will be filled with baseball smells such as sunflowers seeds, which everyone seems to be chewing, or the perfume of fresh cut outfield grass. The home fans will be cheering with optimism despite the score.
If you like baseball you are going to love this story about my fun state baseball tournament! We had 11 players, three coaches, and a lot of fans and parents. You will hear about how we did, what I did, and what happened. Now you will read about my team and I did, and everything else that happened.
It was a inning ending double play. I was starting to feel that we could do this and that we could actually win this game. But we knew it would be difficult without any of our good pitchers being available to pitch. It was the final inning of the game we had our best pitcher on the team out to throw the last inning. We all thought this was going to be an easy win from hear.

We also had a 6 leaf clover in our dugout like we did it for all the other games for luck. I started out on the mound pitching. I lasted 3 innings and gave up 3 runs. Our team was also hitting the ball really good. We ended up winning 8-0 with a run rule after 4 innings.
The first inning passes and the game is tied 0-0. Our ace is on the mound and he was working the other team, 4 strikeouts through 2 innings but already 35 pitches. It is now our turn to bat, first batter is walked, then the second is hit by a pitch. The opposing team's coach walks on the field to say something to the pitcher, he probably said “You are doing great, but you can let them hit it, there is a defense behind you to make plays too” because he did just that. The next three pitches are all outs, all of them ground balls to one of the infielders who made the play.
The story hasn 't changed of late, Jeff Locke continued the strong streak of Pirates ' pitching in a 3-2 win over the White Sox yesterday; Gerrit Cole will look to do the same tonight against Jeff Samardzija and the White Sox. Last night, the Pirate bats exploded in the first inning by putting up three runs in a hurry, but that 's all they could muster throughout the night. If Locke and the Pirates ' bullpen wouldn 't have been so good, the Pirates -- more than likely -- would 've added a tally to the loss column.
On July 16th, 1996 The New York Mets roughed up the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 7 to 5. One player who contributed to this win was a rookie by the name of Paul Wilson, who just came off six weeks of rest for his right shoulder. Although it was the return of Paul Wilson, there was another Met that over shadowed Wilson, and this guy was Jerry DiPolo. Mr. DiPolo came into the game during the fifth inning with runners on second and third and no outs. Outstandingly enough, he walked off that mound not conceding one run to the Phillies, which gave the crowd something to cheer about and he picked up the win, in just one inning that he pitched.
