Daily Minyan – June 24, 2009

On this date in 1947 – The Dodgers win 4-2

over the Pirates as Jackie Robinson swipes

home for the first of 19 times in his career.



I’m pretty sure that none of these guys have ever stolen

home, but I wouldn’t put it past Ian Kinsler to accomplish it. 

Let’s see how they did on Tuesday, June 23.

Ryan went 0-for-3 and walked twice in the Brewers loss to

the Twins.  He lowered his average to .316.

Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays
