09/06/2005: My favorite all-time baseball achievement?
I've got to think about it, but this is definitely a contender. Probably the weirdest one, too. Via Baseball Prospectus (premium content; subscription required):
RAY "RUBE" CALDWELL, CLEVELAND INDIANS: Struck by lightning while making his first start for the Indians in the ninth inning of the August 24, 1919 game against the A's. He got up and finished the inning for a 2-1 win.Ya gotta admire dedication like that.
