    Major Accomplishments

    Thanks Mark!

    This decade concluded in similar fashion to MLB, except that some names were changed:

    HOME RUN RECORD BROKEN

    Instead of Roger Maris, the single-season HR record was broken in 1961 by Jim Gentile, who belted 77 of them over the Tiger Stadium wall. Incidentally, Roger Maris played the role of Mickey Mantle (76 HR).

    SHOOTING FOR JOE DIMAGGIO

    In 1963, Carl Yastrzemski of the JW Skipjacks completed a 46-game hitting streak, second longest is baseball history behind Joe DiMaggio's 56 game streak set 22 years earler. In real life, it would not be until 1978 that DiMaggio's streak became threatened (Pete Rose, 44 games).

    SHOOTING FOR TED WILLIAMS

    In 1966, Matty Alou of the PAP Redbirds came very close to hitting .400, finishing with a .392 average. Nobody in MLB through the 60s came close to this mark (.361 by Norm Cash in 1961). Rico Cary hit .366 for MLB in 1970; does he have a shot at .400?

    TRIPLE CROWNS

    We had two Batting Triple Crowns in MLB in the 1960s: Frank Robinson in 1966, and Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. For the DMCKL, this distinction was handed to Orlando Cepeda in 1963 (again for the PAP Redbirds).

    We had three pitching Triple Crowns in MLB, all by Sandy Koufax (1963, 1965, 1966). Only once did a DMCKL pitcher achieve that mark: Luis Tiant in 1968 for the Legends. Koufax came close several times but couldn't nail down all three stats.

    PERFECT GAMES

    On June 22, 1965, Knights pitcher Sonny Siebert tossed nine perfect innings against the PAP Redbirds (this team is showing up a lot isn't it?)... the final score, 6-0. It was the first perfect game since Don Larsen's historic World Series performance in 1956. Do you know who caught this game Mark?

    Catfish Hunter pitched a perfect game in real life in 1968.

    I'll fill this in as we go along...

    No Hitters

    Comparing MLB to DMCKL through the 1961-1969, we see there were way less no-hitters accomplished (31 to 7)... no surprise considering we use modern-day reliever usages:

    MLB

    (1961) Warren Spahn
    (1962) Sandy Koufax, Bo Belinsky, Earl Wilson, Bill Monbouquette, Jack Kralick
    (1963) Sandy Koufax, Don Nottebart, Juan Marichal
    (1964) Ken Johnson, Sandy Koufax, Jim Bunning
    (1965) Jim Maloney, Sandy Koufax, Dave Morehead
    (1966) Sonny Siebert
    (1967) Steve Barber / Stu Miller, Don Wilson, Dean Chance, Joe Horlen
    (1968) Tom Phoebus, Catfish Hunter *, George Culver, Gaylord Perry, Ray Washburn
    (1969) Bill Stoneman, Jim Maloney, Don Wilson, Jim Palmer, Ken Holtzman, Bob Moose

    DMCKL

    (1961) Ted Bowsfield - Legends
    (1963) Larry Jackson - Gamblers
    (1965) Sonny Siebert - Knights *
    (1965) Juan Marichal - Pirates
    (1966) Sonny Siebert - Knights
    (1967) Pete Richert - Skipjacks
    (1968) Bill Hands - Legends
    (1969) TBD

    * Denotes Perfect Game

    --That is fine if you don't want to. You definately are welcome to participate though. It would be a great way to get caught up on the history of the league.

    Preliminary Ballots

    --These are all the players meeting the criteria above, plus a few other noteables. If you think a reasonable candidate has been overlooked just point them out and I'll add them to the ballot once the position threads go up. Pitcher will be in a separate post, which I also get up today.

    C: Joe Torre, Elston Howard, Tom Haller, Bill Freehan, Johnny Roseboro and.....Clay Dalrymple??? (#5 in games caught!)
    1B: Willie McCovey, Jim Gentile, Orlando Cepeda, Norm Cash, Bill White, Norm Seiburn. Mickey Mantle made 2 All Star teams at 1B, but 3 in CF and played significantly more there. Harmon Killebrew made 3 of his 5 All Star appearances at 3B (1 each at 1B and LF) and played more there than here.
    2B: Joe Morgan (didn't technically qualify, but better than most who did), Pete Rose, Dick McAuliffe, Junior Gilliam, Julian Javier, Jerry Lumpe Bill Mazeroski, Tony Taylor and Bobby Richardson.
    SS; Maury Wills, Bert Campaneris, Luis Aparicio, Jim Fregosi, Zolio Versalles, Ron Hansen and Rico Petrocelli.
    3B: Harmon Killebrew, Dick Allen, Eddie Mthews, Ken Boyer, Ron Santo, and Brooks Robinson.
    CF; Willie Mays, Curt Flood, Vada PInson, Jim Wynn, Al Kaline, Micky Mantle, and Matty Alou.
    LF: Carl Yastrzemski, Frank Robinson, Billy Williams, Lou Brock, Tom Tresh and Leon Wagner. Both Robinson and Williams split time this decade fairly evenly between LF and RF. Robinson more in LF and having a better shot at the first team there. Williams slightly more in RF, but having his best shot in LF.
    RF: Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Tony Oliva, Johnny Callison, Rusty Staub, Bob Allison and Frank Howard.

    Legends 1960s All Decade Team

    Some of these were pretty easy since they've been with me from the start. The rest are those who have performed the best at that position.
    C: Bill Freehan - Has played every game of his career as a Legend.
    1B: Willie McCovey - Ditto Edges out Ron Santo for Player of the Decade
    2B: Joe Morgan
    3B: Ron Santo - Same as Freehan and McCovey
    SS: Gene Alley - I haven't had too many good shortstops. He only played two years for the Legends but is still the best we've had.
    LF: Rusty Staub - Not truly a left fielder, but one of the three best OFers I've had.
    CF: Rick Monday - Edges out Reggie Smith. Not as many PAs but much better production.
    RF: Hank Aaron - Only was with me in 68 & 69, but had two huge seasons and led the team to it's two championships.

    SP: Fergie Jenkins - Pitcher of the Decade
    SP: Luis Tiant - Had two great seasons, including a pitcher's triple crown
    SP: Tom Seaver
    SP: Bill Monbouquette
    RP: Bob Locker
    RP: Ted Abernathy - Also a Legend since the beginning

    You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton

    JW, you may want to put up an Ink thread so your work isn't lost. Especially if you intend to update as we move forward.
