KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Mariano Rivera's career may have ended Thursday night, not while basking in the glow of adoring fans at Yankee Stadium, but in agonizing pain on the outfield grass before a few thousand fans in Kansas City.

Happy birthday Say Hey.......

Fans say hey to Willie Mays on 81st birthday

Quote:
Matt Cain struck out 10 men. Angel Pagan extended his hitting streak to 20 games. But the most recognized numbers at AT&T Park on Sunday afternoon?

They would be 24 and 81.

That's because Willie Howard Mays, No. 24, celebrated his 81st birthday at the ballpark. After Cain retired the Brewers in the second inning, the crowd of 41,796 serenaded the Say Hey Kid with a "Happy Birthday" rendition.

You're right Tim, Big Wow.......Just caught up and a little more on it.

And I like this quote from the article....

Quote:
Elvis Andrus, who got on base ahead of Hamilton in each instance, said, "He kept hitting bombs and bombs. It feels really good because I don't have to run that hard to score."

I'm kinda surprised that surprised you THAT much... given what they consider a "prefect game" now. Should be 27 up 27 down, no men on base, no walks, double plays... ect:

just my opinion of perfect.

How about this new kid/guy for the Red Sox.

Hope he's no flash in the pan, and what are they going to do with him when Youk comes back?

no walks, definitely, but dp's count. as long as 27 up, 27 down, that's a perfect game, IMO.

jesus......I'm tired.......

nope, a perfect game is nobody reaches first base......no balks, no hpb, no nothing. If it's 28 up, 27 down, it's not a perfect game. Pretty sure they haven't changed that, but with all the changes recently (who's brilliant idea was it to move the Astros to the AL again? I'm still getting used to the Brewers being in the NL).......
