05/02/2005: Baseball trivia of the day....
As much as I hate the Atlanta Braves (almost as much as BSTommy hates the Cardinals, and more than I hate the Cubs (which, as a Cards fan I'm required to, even though I really don't hate the Cubs unless they're playing the Cardinals)), I can't pass up passing on this piece of baseball trivia from the Billy-Ball daily email newsletter:
DID YOU KNOW?If Chipper has to hit seven more homers in his career (and the likelihood that he won't is about the same as the likelihood that Heidi Klum will decide that I'm her one-and-only soulmate, and start stalking me), I'll wish him well and hope he beats the record.
Atlanta’s Chipper Jones has hit all 314 of his career homers while working for Bobby Cox...he needs just six more to tie the record for most homers under one manager at the beginning of a player’s career... Mickey Mantle hit his first 320 homers under Casey Stengel.
Just as long as he doesn't hit any of those homers against the Cardinals.
