Box Score of the week.

Like last week, I am featuring a game from the year 1966. In this one, the Atlanta Braves were in Shea Stadium to take on the New York Mets in September of that season.


My friend Mr. D correctly surmised this game was the Major League debut of Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan. 

In this game, Ryan recorded the first of his 5,714 career strikeouts, which makes him the all-time strikeout leader, and it's a record that will assuredly never be topped. 



Mr. D said...

Nolan Ryan's debut?
