How about suicide sqeeze  or steal of home?

Stanton had a 50 ft lead b/c of the shift-could have easily  done it.

I heard  Chief Blackhawk in 1926 gave his permission.  I agree-have white, red & black jerseys--always get a good response.

Mikita jersey from 1960 just hammered down at auction for $26K and change. Then and now, B. Hawks had truly gorgeous jerseys. I know Stan passed a few weeks back.....fierce and talented player....always destroyed my Rangers...but highly respected by Ranger fans
I was a Blackhawks fan from 1951 to today, and Stan was my favourite player, along with Glenn Hall (even more than Bobby Hull).  Stan was a nice man, a great sportsman, gentleman, and credit to his community, and Chicago, in general.  He was always well-respected by everyone.  Yes, The Hawks have always had the best Jersey in sports.  Glad The Native American rights groups haven't forced a team name change.  The team was named after The Blackhawk Division in The US Armed forces from WWI.  I can't remember if it was The army, but I'd guess so.  There was no US Air Force at that time (1926).

By my count, Dodgers have 9 - yes 9 layers - with 20+ HR's, counting the 2 guys who didn't play the whole year with them - Machado & Dozier. I fondly recall my '61 Yankees with 'scads" of 20+ HR hitters, including all 3 (nominal) catchers  - Yogi, Elston, Blanchard. But 9 is incredible.

Hemus and Tappe are among my "favorite" obscure players from the days of my youth. Per memory, Hemus last played in '59 (black card in '59 Topps set) and was player-manager for SL that year, before continuing on a few years as Cardinals manager, followed by Johnny Keane, who then took an ill-fated spin as Yankees skipper. Tappe, was an on and off the roster back-up catcher who retired and returned a few times as player - "college of coaches" manager.

When did I last see a pitch-out? I think it was Monday night (anyway, it was earlier this week.)  Angels' runner (maybe Shohei) running in a classic running situation. Opponent pitched out and runner was out by the proverbial mile.

I'm thinking the Cubs had a couple of those rare player-managers in the 50s and 60s but am drawing a total blank as to any names.

Solly Hemus jumped into my head but think if he player-managed it was with the Cardinals?

Side note: I was living in DC when Ted Williams managed the Senators from 1969-71. The '69 Senators finished over .500 if I recall and I remember the press was all over Ted to at least pinch hit in key spots. This, at age 50. He never did although few doubted he would have hit better than the mediocre guys he asked to do that job.
Yes, Solly Hemus player managed The Cardinals while still playing, in 1959.  Elvin Tappe played catcher and managed The Cubs in 1962.  He was one of a rotation of Cub managers.

Phil Cavaretta managed The Cubs as a player in 1952-53.

"New"  referred to  being a Dodger--I know  he  was   on Yankees  &  As  briefly a few yrs ago.

Amazing--in 24 hrs--Dodgers  set  record  with  7 or 8  having 20 hrs.  Then Yankees  set theirteam  record  of  7 or 9  with 10+Hrs.  Better than 1927 Yanks.

Smoltz asked last nite--wen did u last see a pitch out?

Name as many Baseball player-managers as you can from our youth.  I can remember 8 already.
Lou Boudreau with the Indians is the only one that comes to mind from my youth. Later on, there was Frank Robinson with the Indians in the 70s and Pete Rose with the Reds.
Frank Robinson with Cleveland in the late '70s and Pete Rose in the '80s is long past my time related to Baseball.  1969 is the last season I followed, other than Hank Aarons run to 715.
Yes, Boudreau was one.  I remember about 15 from the 1940s and 1950s.  Hint- MOST of them managed really bad teams.
Yeah, I knew Robinson and Rose were out of the scope of your question but couldn't think of others. I was 5 when Boudreau did his thing but it was always brought up in following years because of its recency, so I was well aware. I also knew from lore that Rogers Hornsby was a player-manager and I think Ty Cobb was too but ... before my time.   Since my post, I'm thinking Eddie Stanky managed/played for the Cardinals.

Yes, Stanky managed The Cards during the early to 'mid 50s ('52-'55).  He played only in 1952-53.

Yelich--better than  Stanton BTW--hit for  the  cycle again-- only 2 or3 guys have done it twice in a  yr.

Talk about no publicity--the  new Dodger pitcher--throws right & left--not done since 1890s!

Venditte isn't so "new". Past 30 and came up 3-4 years back - trials with A's., Toronto, & mariners I believe.
