Interesting Facts about Baseball.

Interesting+Facts+about+Baseball.

I researched interesting facts about baseball.

The first fact is that in 2019, pitcher Edwin Jackson became the first player in history to play for 14 MLB teams, a feat accomplished within the first 17 years of his still-active career. The previous record was held by Octavio Dotel, also a pitcher. Dotel played for 13 teams during his 15-year MLB career.

The second fact is that Hank Aaron holds the record for the most runs batted in (RBI) in MLB history. He played for 21 seasons, spending 19 years with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves and two years with the Milwaukee Brewers. During his career, he batted in 2,297 runs. In 1957, his power-hitting helped the Atlanta Braves win the World Series for the first time since 1914.

The third fact is that Nolan Ryan holds the record for the most career strikeouts in MLB history. He racked up 5,714 strikeouts during his professional baseball career. He became an MLB pitcher in 1966 when he was just 19 years old. He retired in 1993 at the age of 46.

The fourth fact is that in July 2020, Alyssa Nakken became the first full-time female MLB head coach, working for the San Francisco Giants. Nakken started working with the Giants in 2014 as a front-office intern. She worked in other roles (player development, recruitment, international operations, and health/wellness) before moving to one of the team’s assistant coach positions.
