Third Time’s The Charm!

Wow, I have been thinking. You know baseball is really a game of numbers and statistics, right? So there’s got to be some odd occurences that happen during the 162 game season right? Well I just figured out baseball is all a game of 3’s.

Yep, a game of threes. I mean how many homeruns did the two men below each achieve on Monday back to back?

Last one for you. What do these two men have on common (besides the fact that they are great baseball players)?

Nick Adenhart: A Phenomenal Player and Person

Nicholas James Adenhart was born on August 24th, 1986. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 14th round of the 2004 MLB Draft and was only drafted that low because of possible arm problems. He was always a great guy in the clubhouse and the pitcher you’d want on the mound. He looked to have a great future ahead of him and was regarded as one of the best pitchers in the minor leagues. He got called up to the Angels on May 1st, 2008 making his major debut as a starter against the White Sox, and although he allowed  5 earned runs in 2 innings, you could see that the talent was there. He made 4 starts in his career and dominated the Athletics in his last outing on April 8th, 2009. Shortly after midnight on April 9th, 2009, he was among three people killed in a crash in Fullerton, California, when a minivan ran a red light and hit his silver Mitsubishi, killing him and two other people. Today’s Angels game is postponed due to his death. Rest in Peace Nick Adenhart,   Rest in Peace.

Gary Sheffield by peggy..

The Tigers just released Gary Sheffield. He is one homerun from 500 homeruns. Yes you read that right one.

Now remember back in 2006 when we traded this guy? People were yelling and screaming about it.

Yelling! by Sam Howzit.

I guess the Tigers now know why.

Why or Whatever was I thinking 11/21/07 Brooklyn NY USA 1:55 p.m. by larryosan.

I mean seriously Sheffield would probably have more ejections in his career than the man below if he kept playing.

Bobby Cox ejected by therubberduckie.

The Yankees could have signed this guy in the 2004 offseason.
