    Congrats to Lew and the Sens on their back-to-back WS titles. It takes the sting out of falling to them in the AL East playoffs. The Giants were monster this season. See you in '58!

    Re: 1957 chatter

    Ugh. KC's having a miserable 1950s decade. We fall to the Senators in a Game 7 pitching duel that results in a 1-0 win for the Sens. KC will see some staffing changes in the off season, so we'll...

    David Wendling gets his 100th career triple in this game. Wendling's busy trying to hit career milestones, as he's indicated that this season will be his last. He currently sits with 395 doubles,...

    Looks like the '56 WS champion Senators are starting the '57 pre-season with a big move, sending future HoFer Ted Williams to the Cards. I'm guessing that there may be other shakeups throughout the...

    You could probably pull out stratomatic, that I'm sure a good number of us have sitting in the basement since the late 70s.

    Thanks. Based on what I could find, the A's went nutso in the '50s when they moved to KC. They played around with field dimensions and wall heights a lot. Historically, it ended up being more...

    I'm finding I can't edit my stadium dimensions. It looks like for '56, LF should go to 330 and RF should go to 352.

    Ugh. KC drop Game 7 vs the Senators in a 1-0 loss. Yet another disappointing season for the A's. Congrats, Lew. Give 'em hell the rest of the way, and we'll catch up with you next season.

    Nice back story!

    The funny thing is that I was checking out the Sen's roster a few days ago and spied Brazle. He struck me as future A's material. ;-P

    6/2/1955 turned out to be "hit the year" day at Municipal Stadium as Kurt Kimbrell gets hit number 1955. Fans were treated to free hot dogs and ice cold cokes in honoring the A's hitter. The 1945...
