4/19/2018, From the management: We have moved the Bullpen over to its new permanent server setup. It's a bit much to explain here, but I think it's working mostly. We have an issue where some requests are blocked due to too many images on a page. I'm working on fixing that issue today. Please let me know on User_talk:Admin if you see any issues. Thank you as always for your support.

History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1927 Philadelphia Athletics trotted out an unusual lineup on July 13th with Ty Cobb, Eddie Collins and Zack Wheat, all of whom had 2,500 or more hits in the majors. No major league team would duplicate such a lineup until the 2012 New York Yankees.
