Notes, Updates, and Comments
Ahoy boys and girls. It's been a long off season but thankfully the page is up and running again. I have graduated from college and have moved back up to the Maryland area. I'm looking forward to season torn between expectations of Mike Hargrove while sweating over Mussina's contract negotiations. Gotta love Orioles' Baseball!!
For everyone's sanity, I've condensed this part...
In his first season, Mike had the lowest ERA of all AL rookies with at least ten starts.
His fifth-inning RBI double inthe Braves game on June 13, 1999 was the first extra-base
hit by an Orioles pitcher since Roric Harrison homered on Oct. 3, 1972 .
Mike attended Penn State before he went to Stanford. He holds the school record for
longest field goal ever kicked at Penn State. It was only an exhibition game before the
season started, but it was 60 yards. Exhibition game or not, it's still
the longest field goal ever made by a Penn State player. (Thanks Jim!)
He is the only Oriole starter to win two games in one playoff series.
He set the Orioles single game K record with 15 strikeouts on Oct 11, 1997.
