Hello Fresh Presents: The 5 Best Baseball Movies

The best baseball movie ever is The Natural, starring Robert Redford. He plays Roy Hobbs, a promising baseball prospect who is shot by a woman obsessed with killing rising athletes. The movie skips forward to when Roy is 35 and starts playing for a fictional major league team, the New York Knights. A star player is being lazy so the manager has Roy pinch-hit for him and he hits the ball so hard the cover comes off. Later, that star player dies running through an outfield fence while going for a fly ball and Roy becomes the starter.

Why Modern Pitchers Might Never Get 300 Wins

Why Modern Pitchers Might Never Get 300 Wins

The mark of a truly great starting pitcher used to be 300 wins. It was considered a milestone on par with hitters getting 3,000 hits or 500 home runs. However, due to developments in the strategy of the game and more conservative use of pitching arms to avoid injury, 300 wins is no longer a reasonable expectation of a great pitcher. There are very few pitchers today that appear to have a chance of getting 300 wins, even with great luck. A starting pitcher may not get 300 wins for a very long time, especially not in the current baseball environment.

The primary factor in the decline of the 300-win season is teams’ increased use of the bullpen. The starting pitcher is pitching less innings as managers more frequently pull them out for relievers. Most teams have 6 or 7 relievers: long relief pitchers for when a starter Read the rest

The Best Designated Hitters in Baseball History

The Best Designated Hitters in Baseball History

In 1973, the American League introduced the designated hitter to replace the pitcher in the batting order. The designated hitter, or DH, is the only position in baseball that never goes out on the field to play defense. There aren’t many players that are full-time DHs, but of those who did play most of their games at DH, there are some outstanding hitters who helped to make their teams great. The following are my picks for the greatest designated hitters of all time.

david ortizThe greatest DH so far in history has got to be David Ortiz. “Big Papi” holds the record for hits, RBI and home runs at the DH position. He hit 480 home runs as DH! He has three World Series rings, all with the Boston Red Sox. David Ortiz may become the first player who played the majority of their games at DH inducted into Read the rest

The Three Greatest Baseball Players Who Aren’t in the Hall of Fame

The Three Greatest Baseball Players Who Aren’t in the Hall of Fame

The Baseball Hall of Fame has 312 members, 217 of which are former major league players. If you visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, courtesy of a promo code from http://couponfly.org/hotels.com, you may find out that some of your favorite players aren’t there.

It has the greatest baseball players ever, such as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Sandy Koufax, as members. Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the greatest honor a Major League Baseball player can receive. However, for various reasons, some of the best players are not in the Hall of Fame. If it hadn’t been for the scandals they were involved in, each of these players would easily have made it into the Hall of Fame. Do you like to listen to ball games when you are unable to watch them?
