#LateNightHistory - Christy Mathewson: Member of the First Five Baseball HOF • • • At 14 years old, Mathewson was playing semi-pro baseball while all of his peers were busy playing hopscotch in the streets and lighting firecrackers off in mailboxes (or whatever the hell teenagers did in 1894). For the next five years he garnered the attention of pro scouts with an impressive 21-2 pitching record. In 1899, he signed a professional contract with Taunton in the New England league and totaled another show-stopping season compiling a 20-2 W/L record. The New York Giants - almost made the worst move in MLB history - bought his contract expecting a phenom. When he made his debut with them his first three performances were so utter garbage they vowed to send him back to Taunton and get their money back. The Reds signed him soon after and later traded him back to the Giants for Amos Rosie (now that just doesn’t make sense does it?) A sidenote and a somehow, two years prior Mathewson managed to balance his time attending college, playing football as a fullback for Bucknell and later in the Greensburg Athletic Association winning the championship as a member of the Pittsburg Stars, 1902 - the 1st NFL team/league ever (disbanded), ALL while this baseball drama was going down. • • • Throughout his 17-year career he was considered one of the greatest pitchers of all time and, a rather peculiar one at that especially for the time period. He had a prestigious degree, a crowd-gasping control of his fadeaway (screwball), mastered the game of checkers, did time in the Chemical Warfare Service (look at previous post) which ultimately led to his death after he was exposed to poison gas during a training exercise in WWI and contracted tuberculosis. - - (Source: SABR) - - #History #Baseball #BaseballHOF #BeLegendary #Giants #MLB #Pitcher #NationalPastime
It’s as American as apple pie, an institution and the national pastime. The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown honors the Boys of Summer across the more than 100 year history of the game. Exhibits on prominent players and managers, memorabilia, and other relics from the game's early days on make this a must-see for any baseball fan.

TBT to the not-so-distant past, when an airliner crossed in front of the Full Buck Moon as it rose beyond the stadium lighting of Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton, NJ at the end of July of 2018.

We follow the best player we have ever seen with someone whose playing career was awful (just ask him). That said, he may be the most famous former ballplayer out there. He is the one and only Bob Uecker. Announcer, actor, funny man, he has accomplished more off the field than he ever did on the field. And, like Ken Griffey, Jr., he, too, is in the Baseball Hall of Fame (as well as the WWE Hall of Fame too. Take that Griffey!). He is our #TBT Player of the Week. The link to his biography from the Baseball Biography Project (sabr.org) will remain in our profile through the weekend. #americasgame #nationalpastime #baseballquotes #ilovebaseball #mlb #MiLB #baseballlove #baseballmom #baseballislife #baseballgame #baseballisbeautiful #americasgame #baseball #baseballseason #batterup #ballgame #takemeouttotheballgame #baseballforlife #baseballfamily #baseballcap #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #motivation #motivationalquotes #grind #success #successquotes #succeed #winner #throwbackthursday

"...Then, as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the Fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops. Today, October [29], a [Monday] of rain and broken branches and leaf-clogged drains and slick streets, it stopped and Summer was gone." - A. Bartlett Giamatti ** The calandar has turned on another MLB season, the lights of the ballpark have gone dark, the bats and gloves set aside. This is always one of the darkest days of the year for me personally, but as the great Vin Scully said, "There will be a new day and eventually a new year. And when the upcoming Winter gives way to Spring, rest assured, once again it will be 'time for [Dodger] baseball!'" For now, all I can do is begin the countdown once again: 107 days until Pitchers and Catchers report! ** ** #baseball #mlb #lights #offseason #stadiumlights #beamsoflight #nationalpastime #nikon #nikonusa #nikonphotography #d7100
GOD BLESS AMERICA!🙏🇺🇸 I had to share this awesome flyover by the USAF! This is from game 3. Who knew we would be there 18 innings, and 7 hours and 20 minutes? Making history! And setting multiple records! So, as I sit here, I just want to reflect on the DODGERS 2018 season. A season filled with ups and downs, ins and outs, and wins and losses, but, WE made it to the World Series! Sure I am disappointed, but the PRIDE I feel outweighs that. We had a great run! While the rest of the world gripes and criticizes about what went wrong. I prefer to remember all the things that went right! Those memories are what run deep and remind me of why I bleed blue! If you don't feel the same, then I suggest you question your loyalty! LOS ANGELES DODGERS FOR LIFE! #diehardfan #hastaLAmuerte #webleedblue #Americaspastime 🇺🇸 #nationalpastime #blueheavenonearth #worldseries2018 #Dodgers #LosDoyers #puigyourfriend #winnersinmybook #mightyproud #noregrets #dodgerdogs #dodgerbabes #flyover #bustingeardrums #ITFDB #GodblessAmerica
Excited to witness Game 5 of the MLB World Series at Dodgers Stadium. Paying homage to the legendary Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier in baseball. To quote the legend: "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives."

One of a handful of Cincy Red Legs I actually like lol. - Len 🇵🇭🇺🇸🌹⚾️ Born in San Pedro, California, Balcena became the first player of Filipino ancestry to appear in a major league game. He had a long distinguished Triple-A career with the Seattle Rainiers as a center fielder in the 1950s, and in Seattle is fondly remembered to this day. He also played from 1952 through 1962 in the Minor Leagues, including stints with the Leones del Caracas and the Industriales de Valencia in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League. He batted .284 with 134 home run and 441 runs batted in in 1948 minor league games. In a VPBL two-season career, he posted a .306 average with five homers and 44 RBI in 87 games. Balcena died in his hometown of San Pedro, California at the age of 64. #FAHM #FAHM #CincinattiRedLegs @reds @mlb #1940s #1950s #CincinattiReds #BobbyBalcena #Outfielder #PacificCoastLeague #SeattleRainiers #Baseball #Vintage #FilipinoAmerican #SanPedro #California #NationalPastime #BaseballIsLife #MajorLeagueBaseball #MinorLeagueBaseball #Instagram #Instapic #IGers
Next installment in the October Baseball series. When I came upon Josh Gibson while studying the Negro Leagues many years ago I was fascinated. Because precise statistics in the league are hard to nail down, Gibson’s achievements are somewhat tangled with legend. But there’s no doubt he was among the greatest to play the game, including the major leagues. He alternated between the Pittsburgh Crawfords and the Homestead Grays from 1927-1946. He led the Grays to numerous championships and his league and non-league home run count is stratospheric— over 70 in 1931, and reportedly 84 in ’36, amassing upwards of 800 throughout his career, though precise facts are sketchy. Naturally the barnstorming nature of the Negro Leagues produced many whimsical yarns. My favorite is one from Josh’s time at Pittsburgh when he “hit one so hard that it never came down. The next day, Gibson and the Crawfords were playing in Philidelphia when a ball dropped from the heavens into an outfielder’s glove. The umpire pointed at Gibson and shouted, ‘You’re out— yesterday, in Pittsburgh!’” (Ward & Burns, Baseball An Illustrated History, Knopf) The quote in my illustration is by Walter Johnson (Washington Senators, 1907-1927), widely agreed to be one of the greatest pitchers to play the game. Johnson, who’s gentle nature and good sportsmanship were legendary, was a product of his times and I believe his statement is merely a reflection of the untoward shadow of segregation as well as an honest, albeit hyperbolic observation of Gibson. Sadly, Josh Gibson developed a brain tumor and suffered a fatal stroke at the age of 35. Johnson’s quote painted for me a towering figure in Gibson, who’s legacy, though eclipsed by the specter of the “two Americas” of that time, still speaks volumes and stands as a monument to greatness. #baseball #baseballhistory #illustration #graphite #graphitedrawing #baseballart #sportsart #drawing #americana #americanhistory #nationalpastime
Still pinching myself from performing last night in @abfestival New Follies! I talked myself out of applying last year so to apply and be accepted was a big goal for me ❤️ The audience, stage, crew and fellow performers were all amazing and I’m thankful for the experience and opportunity! I had an absolute ball (ha puns) bringing my National Pastime act to Melbourne, thank you to ABF Producers & @doloresdaiquiri for having me ❤️ Big congratulations to our 2018 winners you all smashed it! . . . . #abfestival #australianburlesquefestival #australianburlesque #burlesque #pinup #nationalpastime #baseball #burly #burlylife #rhinestone #crystalqueer #puns #lingerie #vintagehair #pinupgirl #simoneperele #abf #alextheatre #goals #achievement #pinchingmyself
Oftentimes we are asked, Who is the best player you ever saw? That’s easy. It’s Ken Griffey Jr. He could do everything better than anyone else and that is no exaggeration. (His father was pretty darn good, too.) He is our #TBT Player of the Week. The link to his biography from the Baseball Biography Project (sabr.org) will remain in our profile through the weekend.  #americasgame #nationalpastime #baseballquotes #ilovebaseball #mlb #MiLB #baseballlove #baseballmom #baseballislife #baseballgame #baseballisbeautiful #americasgame #baseball #baseballseason #batterup #ballgame #takemeouttotheballgame #baseballforlife #baseballfamily #baseballcap #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #motivation #motivationalquotes #grind #success #successquotes #succeed #winner #throwbackthursday

“The National Pastime” |To me, no other sport can match the beauty of baseball. From the exquisite perfection and symmetry of how the field of play intertwines with the timing of plays to the lack of a clock to the history, traditions and superstitions, it is still, in my personal opinion, the purest of all sports. And to those who claim that it’s “boring” and “nothing’s happening,” I humbly submit that if you take the time to really get to know the game and its nuances, you begin to realize that something is *always* “happening.” . . . #baseball #mlb #nationalpastime #boysofsummer #fieldofdreams #grass #stilllife

I still remember the very first time I set foot inside the Olympic Stadium in Montréal to see my first Expos game, 6 years old. I remember listening to the games on the radio every night in my bed. It was a different time and situation. I would have never dared to dream about visiting another ballpark in my life. Fast forward 26 years later and I've nearly seen them all. Situation changes, be grateful, perhaps you are overvaluing what you don't have and undervaluing what you do. #montrealexpos #expos #olympicstadium #pncpark #pirates #pittsburgh #tbt #mlb #baseball #nostalgia #roadtrip #pennsylvania #pittsburghpirates #usa #canada #fallclassic #nationalpastime
Herb Score’s career started out like a house on fire but after being hit in the face by a line drive in 1957, his career was never the same again. He did stay in the game, pitching for five more years before becoming the Indians’ play-by-play announcer for 34 seasons. He is our #TBT Player of the Week.
