    First Time Ever

    Tuesday night, April 24, something occurred during the Marlins @ Mets game that had never happened before in MLB history. What was it?
    Put it in the books.

    Ozzie Guillen didn't say something offensive?

    LOL ... Good guess, and I suppose that could be a valid answer, but that's not it.

    More than 5 Marlins fans traveled to a visiting park for a single game?

    First time that four different pitchers walked four straight batters in one inning of a game.

    Or something like that.

    I actually spent most of the game (approximately six innings) in my ticketed seat?
    X
    This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas. Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009

    i was going to guess that. I was at the stadium, and that was the most painful half inning I have ever witnessed

    That's precisely correct.

    New question:

    On Monday night, Apr 30, Astros manager Brad Mills did something no manager in history had ever done before. What was it?

    not sure why this keeps happening against the Mets, but 7 straight batters each faced a different pitcher

    lol... I don't know either, but that's exactly right. Very good.

    What surprised me is that it happened in April rather than in, say, September, when the rosters are expanded.

    Both your questions kinda bring to light why people might say baseball is boring and it has nothing to do with video games or short attention spans etc. 45 seconds - 2 minutes of game, manager goes out, cut to commercial, new guy warms up and after a couple to five minutes we have baseball again. later, rinse repeat.

    Hehe, would that be known as managing for the cycle?

    I bet it has been done before, but you never know...

    Tonight, the first 5 batters in the Cardinals lineup all hit homeruns, which has been done many times, I am sure. But they hit them in the same order as their lineup spot. First was Furcal, second was Beltran, etc.

    Any record of how rare this is?
