This Week In Baseball History

May 24, 2024

On the 81st anniversary of the shortest nine-inning game in American League history, an 89 minute affair between the White Sox and Senators, Mike and Bill try to finish their episode about it before the game itself would have ended. Along the way, they talk about Luke Appling, knuckleballers, exactly what the Washington baseball team's nickname was at any given time, and whether Mickey Vernon is the gateway to getting Al Oliver into the Hall of Fame.

Plus, happy birthday to Gil McDougald and Newt Allen!

And farewell to Bill Plummer and Jim McAndrew.
