[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1957 Kansas City Athletics were the first team in baseball history to have no pitchers qualify for the ERA title, which required pitching at least one inning for each of a team's scheduled games, or 154 innings in this case. Also achieving this feat have been the 1995 St. Louis Cardinals, the 1996 Oakland Athletics, the 1997 Oakland Athletics, and the 1998 St. Louis Cardinals, but all of those later teams, except for the 1995 Cardinals, did so while playing a longer schedule. Kansas City's workhorse pitcher was Ned Garver, who pitched 145 1/3 innings, closely followed by swingman Tom Morgan, who logged 143 2/3.
