Shortest pitching line in history???

Postby Runnin' Rebel » Fri Dec 22, 2006 7:46 am

One of my favorite trivia questions is what Houston Astro pitcher had the shortest outing in the history of baseball?? The answer is Larry (yes, the brother of Robin) Yount who threw his elbow out while warming up between innings of his ML debut.

My question, who was the batter Yount would have faced to lead off the inning???

Aaron was a good guess because the Astros WERE playing the Atlanta Braves on September 15, 1971. He was due up third in the inning after Ralph Garr and FELIX MILLAN who led off the inning.

Yount threw his elbow out while warming up for the top of the ninth and was replaced by Jim Ray who finished the game in a losing effort.

I actually looked at the lineup and counted Outs, BB and tried to guesstimate.

Yount was caught up in a numbers game with the Astros and lost out to the likes of Dierker, Richard, and York. He never made it back to the majors and was eventually traded to the Brewers where he went to his last Training Camp in 1974 with his younger brother, Robin.
