How to beat Tatis father's record

"Why do I complain if nobody listens to me"... Pachomio.

Like every Wednesday, today is Mail Day. Please, send your full name and town or city from where you write. Otherwise, I can't answer you.

Fellow journalist and professor, Daniel Rojas R. from Barquisimeto, Venezuela comments and asks: “After reading your column, I took stock of what was necessary to break the record for RBIs set by Fernando Tatis Sr.

You would have to hit no less than three times. For example, first inning: fourth man at bat of the inning, no outs, home run, four RBIs; second inning: XNUMXth man at bat of the inning, home run, four RBIs, and eight to go; XNUMXrd inning: XNUMXnd batter in inning, with man in scoring position or three on; there are two outs, at least hit hit, or receive a base on balls, or hit an infield hit, one more RBI, for a total of nine.

It would be the new record. Well, in that last turn, let him be a home run, and also, with three on bases, to enter "The Twilight Zone", like that series from the sixties.

The next batter misses out and ends the inning.

Total hit 23. Suppose there are three on base, plus three outs. 17 runs in the inning. If the bases are clean it would be 20 runs.

“What is the greatest number of runs in one inning in Major League Baseball?

Amigo Dano: Thank you very much for the accurate accounting. This record is 14, by the Indians, in the second inning, against the Yankees, on April 18, 2009. Final score, Indians 22-Yankees 4.

Nina Calatrava, from The Bronx, exposes and asks: “Why, according to yourself and other journalists, including Americans, do you think that the best World Series has not been the Yankees, but the 1975 Reds-Red Sox? I've only turned 21 and even though I love baseball, I have a lot to learn."

Amiga Ni: The number of Series does not guarantee the Yankees have played the best. That one from '75 had many reasons to be superior, such as the cold, the snow and the rain, which forced the postponement in Boston, the sixth game, for three days in a row, the home run of the sixth game that Carlton Fisk seemed to push in Feanway Park from foul to fair, the confrontation of two great managers, Darrell Johnson and Sparky Anderson, plus the display of good baseball by The Most Valuable, Pete Rose.

Thanks to the life that has given me so much, even a reader like you.
