The only active pitchers in Major League Baseball to have a victory over ALL 30 M.L. teams are Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling.

The co-M.V.P.s of the 2001 World Series were.................RANDY JOHNSON AND CURT SCHILLING. :lol:

The only players to be named World Series M.V.P. twice were Sandy Koufax (1963 & 1965), Bob Gibson (1964 & 1967), and Reggie Jackson (1973 & 1977). Jackson is the only one to win it with two different teams.

The only player on a losing team to be named World Series M.V.P. is Bobby Richardson (1960, Yankees vs. Pirates)

The 1960 World Series went 7 game. In those 7 games the Yankees scored a total of 55 runs. The Pirates scored 27 times.
The Pirates won the World Series.

The thing women lie about the most is their age.
The thing men lie about the most is their height.

The only U.S. Presidents to wear glasses are...........................
ALL of them. :-?
