Career fielding percentage[edit]

Sandberg's career fielding percentage was .990 when he retired in 1994, but after playing in the '96 and '97 seasons, the number was reduced to .989. User:68.77.17.119 15:38, 21 January 2005 (UTC)

  • According to what source? If you are using baseball-reference.com, that is not an official source. Kingturtle 22:33, 21 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Every source I can find has the .989 number. Here's the link to MLB: http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/stats_historical/mlb_individual_stats_player.jsp?playerID=121665

I think I still like mine best. WikiDon 20:59, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Well, I was just trying to improve it... if you wanna use the one that was there, that's ok. Or, if you want to use the jersey pic that I uploaded, with the blue border around it instead of that gray (which I didn't mean to do I wanted the blue)... I guess you could do that.. if you want, that is. FPAtl 04:27, August 29, 2005 (UTC)

  • I like the way the one I did stands out. It is the focus. I wish the one you submitted was sharper, and the red would come out more. Maybe we need a third opinion? WikiDon 05:06, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Baseball is Boring[edit]

I can't think of anything more boring to read about than baseball. I just had to say it. Actually, no, I just wanted to say it. A lot. Because I got an SMS from "Ryne" and I don't know what it means. - 61.9.204.168

You don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.75.173.123 (talk) 23:43, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Statistics[edit]

I'm pretty sure Willie Mays hit 20 doubles, triples, homeruns, and had at least 20 SB in a season.

Did Soriano hit 40 homeruns as 2nd baseman?

The Sandberg Game[edit]

Can someone help me with this? I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that he was able to bat in both the bottom of the ninth and tenth innings. Since teams are limited to three outs per half-inning, it just seems impossible that the Cubs could bat around in the ninth without winning the game. -- Cubs Fan (talk) 04:36, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Sandberg led off the 9th with a HR. The Cubs then had a single, an out, an out, a walk and an out. That's 1 R, 2 H, 2 LOB. In the 10th, the Cubs had an out, an out, a walk, and Sandberg's HR, and an out. That's 2 R, 1 H, 0 LOB. You can read the play by play here. Kingturtle (talk) 13:00, 19 December 2007 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. Now it makes sense. -- Cubs Fan (talk) 19:58, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Another issue is the description of Bruce Sutter as "hard throwing". He was not considered hard throwing at any point in his major league career, having adopted the split-fingered fastball -- an off-speed pitch -- in the minor leagues and riding his proficiency in it all the way to the majors (ironically, with the Cubs). He threw the split-fingered fastball almost exclusively, only spotting his fastball and slider. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ghstark (talkcontribs) 02:38, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Jewish?[edit]

Sandberg is a popular Jewish last name...so why isn't this mentioned in the article?! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.159.111.98 (talk) 05:57, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Apparently he's not Jewish. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 06:01, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Removal of managerial stats[edit]

This edit [1] removes Ryno's managerial stats with an edit summary that says that "its policy not to include tables like this". Which policy says that? A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 22:41, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Well WP:NOTSTATS for one.. Stat tables were also the subject of a recent discussion at WP: Baseball where it was decided that they should not be used except in rare occasions. Cant find the exact discussion right now to link to but even major league managerial tables havent been included. Spanneraol (talk) 22:55, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Hmmmm...WP:NOTSTATS says "Excessive listings of statistics. Long and sprawling lists of statistics may be confusing to readers and reduce the readability and neatness of our articles". (emphasis mine).

But, I guess I don't care. I was more interested in the policy. If Sandberg continues managing, the table will eventually get excessive. A Quest For Knowledge (talk) 23:07, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
