August 31, 1959: Sandy Koufax and 18 strikeouts!

Sandy Koufax was a very talented young pitcher who threw hard but walked too many batters.     In 1959, Koufax broke through with 18 Ks and set the National League record for a game.   It was the beginning of an amazing stretch:    

From 1962 to 1966, Koufax executed what are arguably the five greatest seasons by a pitcher in baseball history.

Newfound control limited his walks from 4.8 per game to just 2.1.

He threw no-hitters in 1962, 1963 and 1964, and led the Dodgers to World Series wins in 1963 and 1965 and the National League pennant in 1966.

He won four World Series games, with a .95 earned run average and 61 strikeouts for his postseason career.

Koufax won three Cy Young Awards (1963, 1965 and 1966), all of them unanimous. In 1965 he struck out 382 men, breaking Rube Waddell’s 1904 record of 350 by 32.

According to longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, Koufax was so well-regarded that he would often receive a standing ovation from fans while just warming up for a game.

Sandy Koufax retired after the 1966 season at just 30 years old because of arthritis in his elbow. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1972.

Koufax, along with team mate Don Drysdale, were one of the best 1-2 punch in major league history.

Where is the black Democrat telling Colin Kaepernick to shut up?

(My new American Thinker post)

The whole Kaepernick anthem affair confirms two things:

1) He is no longer making headlines by throwing TD’s; and worse,

2) He does not have a clue of what repression really is.

My friend Humberto Fontova told me about Kaepernick holding a press conference wearing a T-shirt with a picture of Fidel Castro. It explained everything that I needed to know about this clown named CK who can’t play QB anymore.

Furthermore, it also proved that Kaepernick does not even understand what is going on in U.S. cities, especially as it relates to the minorities that he is suddenly so worried about. Maybe he should get out of his mansion and spend a few days living in the inner city.  

As Heather McDonald pointed out:

Blacks are killed by police at a lower rate than their threat to officers would predict. To cite more data on this point: in 2013, blacks made up 42 percent of all cop killers whose race was known, even though blacks are only about 13 percent of the nation’s population.

Less than one-third of all homicides by police involve black victims. Moreover, there is a huge, unacknowledged measure of support for the police in the inner city: “They’re due respect because they put their lives every day on the line to protect and serve. I hope they don’t back off from policing,” a woman told me on the Staten Island street where Eric Garner was killed. (This was two nights before Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were assassinated in Brooklyn.)

It ain’t happening, Colin. You are reading our society’s problems as poorly as you do the defenses intercepting your passes or the receivers that you are constantly overthrowing!  

Here is the worst part: His message of black victimology was unchallenged. No one in the Congressional Black Caucus stood up and called Collin out.    No one in the Democrat Party defended the police from the outrageous lies that Kaepernick said.  

In the meantime, Chicago has recorded 487 homicides and more than 2,800 people shot so far this year. My guess is that the people in those communities are happy to see “the blue team”!

At the end of the day, who cares whether Kaepernick salutes the national anthem. Let him sit down! However, he has no right to attack the integrity of our police officers or pretend to be enlightened by wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt!
