Baseball’s one-game-wonders

Not much happening this morning, so gentlemen: lets broaden our minds. Specifically, let’s take some time and check out this fun link over at Baseball Past and Present: a review and remembrance of some guys who played but a single game in the major leagues.

You know Eddie Gaedel and Moonlight Graham. But do you know that Robin Yount’s older brother makes the list too?  As well as a freaking Catholic Priest who, despite his one game, set a major league record?

Good reading.

    How about a two-game wonder: Johnny Vandermeer. I mean, he played more than two games, but still, some dude would have to pitch three straight no-hitters to break his record! That’s as unattainable as Cy Young’s 511 wins.

    Charlie Zink. He was a knuckleballer, so he wins.
