  • Last out/play of the World Series

    How often has the last out or championship clinching hit been achieved by an eventual HOFer? I know Ruth's CS is one and Gwynn made the last out in '84. If you include putouts, Ripken made the putout to end the '83 series.

    Cabrera made the last out in 2012. He's a certain HOFer.

          I thought it was interesting that only once has the WS ended with the bat stationary.

              The worst one for me was 2000 when Piazza popped out to end a big letdown of a subway series.

                  How about 1928?

                  For the last AB, Waite Hoyt (HOF) threw a pitch to Frankie Frisch (HOF) who flew out to another HOFer (Babe Ruth) in foul ground.

                  This was the three homer game from Ruth also.

                    I still have to go with 2000 because I was only 16 when that one happened.

                      Look how many other guys with a decent HOF case are on that list! Wally Berger, Ron Cey, Gil Hodges, Elston Howard, Joe Jackson, Davey Johnson, Kenny Lofton, Tony Phillips, Vada Pinson, Jorge Posada, Pete Rose, Roy White.

                      Active players with a shot include Michael Brantley, Miguel Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Manny Machado, Salvador Perez and Corey Seager.

                      Time will tell, but this list can only grow as years pass.

                        It makes sense if you think about it. When a team's back is up against the wall and their best player is available, that team is going to do whatever they can to get a bat in that player's hands.

                          It's a little more unlikely than that...most of the time these guys were in the starting lineup and their turn in the order just happened to come up.

                            Yup. Teams that make the WS are much more likely to have 4-5 All Star caliber and 1-3 HOF caliber players on them than a typical team anyway.

                              Especially considering that Yankees team's staff was really weak compared to their past four squads. Clemens was the only one on that staff with an era below 4.00, and only him and Pettitte had an ERA+ that was truly above-average (131 for Rocket, 111 for Pettitte.)
