The rookie Tim Wakefield in his first career playoff start against the Atlanta Braves in game 3 of the 1992 NLCS. Wakefield followed up a complete game 5-hitter win with another complete win in game 6. Wakefield also goes into how he throws his knuckleball at the 4:55 mark.
After a 21 year career with a record of 143-122, 227 SV and career ERA of 2.52, 1972 was Wilhelm's last season playing ball. He pitched only 25.1 innings and recorded a record of 0-1 with an ERA of 4.62. Not so great after such a long career.
This was also Quinn's last season in the majors, capping off a career with a record of 247-218 and ERA of 3.29. His final season was not much better than Wilhelm. Pitching only 15.2 innings, Quinn recorded a record of 0-1 with an ERA of 4.02.
Pitching with the AAA Marlins of the International League (affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies at the time), Satchel threw 111 innings in a combination of 37 starts and relief appearances. The best part is that Paige went 11-4 with an ERA of 1.86 and WHIP of 1.16.
I don't think we can expect such a dominating season from Moyer this year, but don't forget, Moyer maneuvered his 80 mph fastball to a record of 9-9, ERA 4.84, WHIP 1.10 back in 2010.
A great April fool's prank. This 8-bit treatment reminds me of the awesome re-creation of the bottom of the 9th of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. Kirk Gibson with his historical HR off the bench. Classic.
