baseballsisco On This Day in Baseball History April 29, 1981: Philadelphia Phillies starter and future Hall of Famer Steve Carlton becomes the sixth pitcher and first left-hander in baseball history to surpass 3,000 strikeouts.
Carlton does it in grand style in front of 30,142 fans at Veterans Stadium by striking out the side of Tim Raines, Jerry Manuel and Tim Wallach in the first inning against the Montreal Expos. Wallach would be his 3,000th victim.
The Phillies would defeat the Montreal Expos behind a complete game by Carlton by the score of 6-2.

Carlton joined Walter Johnson, Gaylord Perry, Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson and Tom Seaver on the 3,000 strikeout list.
Carlton would finish with 4,672 career strikeouts and would be inducted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994.

baseballsisco On This Day in Baseball History April 27, 1983: Suffering from a blister that had been drained the inning before and facing pinch hitter Brad MIlls in the eighth inning of the contest between the Montreal Expos and Houston Astros, Nolan Ryan makes history. With his strikeout of Mills on a 1-2 curveball, Mills becomes Ryan’s career strikeout number 3,509. The significance of 3.509?

In notching strikeout 3,509, Ryan would pass the strikeout king Walter Johnson whose record of 3,508 career K’s stood untouched since 1927. In typical Ryan fashion, he was quoted as saying: “I don’t get too excited about anything,“ and ’‘I was more relieved than anything else. Now I can sit back and relax and get more satisfaction out of it.” Ryan would pitch 8-innings of 5-hit ball for a 4-2 win.

Ryan would finish his career with 5,714 strikeouts, a record that looks like it might be difficult to surpass. Ryan retired in 1993 and would be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999.

bullpenlife The #Marlins had 2 wild pitches in the first inning of their game tonight against the #Dodgers. The most wild pitches in one game is 6. That record is held by 3 pitchers. #MLB #history #BaseballHistory #baseball #wildpitch #BaseballReference #BillGullickson #PhilNiekro #JRRichards #MontrealExpos #Expos #AtlantaBraves #Braves #HoustonAstros #Astros 2d

jkfitzpatrickfitness In Beachbodyland when black boxes arrive on your doorstep it means something AWESOME is inside and they are sending you SWAG for helping people get healthy and changing their life! ️ Not a bad gig if you ask me!? 😀 Yes, they send Kim and I a TON of free , but seriously, as I'm heading out the door I see the same delivery guy and he passes me the box and he says "Ok, I have to ask, what do you do man!?" So we had a great five minute conversation, he actually works out at home already (seems to be a trend) and he decided to join our upcoming free Coach Sneak this Monday, May 2nd to check out the opportunity!

I believe everyone we meet has a purpose in our life, and you in theirs, but you have to LISTEN, engage, and interact with them to find out what that is.🗣🗣🗣🗣🗣 So what was in the box? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 Yes, more swag, a 5 Star Diamond bracelet and a very cool jacket. Am I proud? Absolutely, no shame in that, I worked incredibly hard for this. And it was sent to me, yes, but in reality they should send them to my Diamond coaches on our team that this represents.

The leaders that pour their heart and soul into their challenge groups and are developing their own teams of ROCKSTARS that help people feel better, look better, and improve their quality of life and health.

Nothing sweeter or more inspiring than that! So Kim Fitzpatrick, Mike Fitzpatrick, Jacqueline Ettinger, Joellyn Leblanc, Andrea Mae Williams, Jennifer Valine Ames, and Johnny Cavaliere...thank you for the SWAG, and for everything you do!

Blessed to call you family and friends and love being on this ride with you!

baseballsamurai07 {Photo: Fox Sports} Baseball Throwback Tuesday: Remember these guys? Warren Cromartie (Cro; later with NPB's Tokyo Giants), Andre Dawson (Hawk), and Ellis Valentine. If you followed the NL (MLB) in the 1970's, you saw them. Arguably the most athletic outfield of their generation. They never got to a World Series, but maaaaaan, the potential.... #montrealexpos #mlb #tokyogiants #npb #baseball #montreal #cromartie #japan #bringbaseballbacktomontreal #baseballcanada #野球 3d
