Great Moments in CTB History
Permalink  
 


First triple play in CTB history occurred yesterday.

1920 NL Replay (currently rolling, posting at a later date). Philadelphia @ Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh had runners at the corners. Walter Barbare (pinch hitting for the pitcher) lined the ball to Russ Wrightstone at 3rd. Wrightstone quickly tagged Howdy Caton and then rifled the ball Dots Miller at first before the slow footed Bill Haefner could get back to first.

I had a couple triple plays when I first started playing and was playing the basic version, this was my first triple play using the super advanced rules.

Congrats. That second die roll, to confirm all three outs, has messed me up once.

The Rajah Hits for the Cycle

Rogers Hornsby recorded the 3rd cycle in CTB history and the first one in a 9 inning game.  Hornsby had a sac fly to center in his first at bat, but then tripled, doubled, homered and singled.  For the afternoon he was 4-4, 4 runs, 5 RBIs.

This was my first cycle in my 1920 replay as the other two came during my 1911 replay.

Congrats!  The Rajah cycled for me in my '24 campaign.

Another bitter sweet accomplishment as I finished rolling my 1920 NL Replay - I won't be posting for awhile, but let me say it was a pennant race to remember.

Really excited to start rolling 1920 AL games, can't wait to see what Ruth does.

New CTB Record for runs scored & first 3 home run game

The 1920 New York Yankees established a new CTB record for runs scored in a game.  The Yankees beat the Philadelphia Athletics 23 - 1.  The Yankees recorded 24 hits, drew 11 walks, and had 12 extra base hits (5 doubles, 2 triples, and 5 home runs) against 4 Athletics pitchers.

Yankee 3rd baseman became the first player in CTB history to hit 3 home runs in one game.  Ward was 5-7, 3 HRs, a double, a single, and finished with 8 RBIs (which I also believe is a CTB record).

Babe Ruth hit the other 2 home runs for the Yankees.  For the day Ruth was 2-4, 5 runs scored, 3 BBs, and had 5 RBIs.

Rain Shortened No-Hitter

In my 1920 AL replay Washington's Jim Shaw pitched a rain shortened 5 inning no-hitter vs. the 1920 New Yankees.  The only Yankee to reach base was Duffy Lewis on an error by Shaw in the 2nd inning.

Under baseball rules in 1920 this would have been counted as a no-hitter.  A ruling in 1991 would have taken this no-hitter off the books.

 What does your house rule say...no hitter or not?

I've never shortened a game for a rain out...just my preference. Your can't do that on the computer.

You are your own commissioner.  I'd say count it.

Congrats!

 I'm counting it.  It's an official game and all players stats count, if I ever get to the 1991 season, maybe I'll reverse my decision :)
