Question Sneak Peak:
* What a run the New York Yankees had from 1947-1964. In those 18 seasons, they went to the World Series an amazing 15 times. In that run, they won five consecutive Series from 1949-1953. During that five year run, they couldn't lose with the bats of Berra, Collins, Gehrig, Rizzuto, and DiMaggio. Casey Stengel took them to 10 of those Series. Where is the error in this?
* The 1927 Yankees were one of the greatest teams in baseball history. They went 110-44 for the season. It was easy with Ruth's 60 home runs, the fourth time he had hit over 50. The pinstripes also had the bat of Lou Gehrig, who hit 47 home runs of his own. From the speed of Bob Meusel and the arm of 22 game winner Waite Hoyt, the Yankees were a heavy favorite to win the World Series. They did indeed, by skunking the Pirates in four games. Can you find the error?
* There have been some young players join the Majors throughout time. Did they join too early? Alex Rodriguez was 18 when he made his debut with the Mariners, and hit no home runs in his first season. Robin Yount was also 18 when he began with the Brewers. How about the Mets' Ed Kranepool, who began his career at the young age of 17. What about Joe Nuxhall, the first little leaguer to play in the Majors at age 15? Bob Feller was 17 when he began his career with the Indians. Were they too young? Where is the error?
