Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Boxy, I'm telling you, man, that's some unusually great stuff there. Boxy's very exciting. [His changeup] is one of those pitches that's unique to him. A lot of guys throw changeups, but not like that one." - Tampa Bay Rays Manager Joe Maddon on MLB.com (Bill Chastain, 03/19/2014, Boxberger relies on unique change up , Source )

Did you know that Brad Boxberger threw an immaculate inning ( 9 Pitches - 9 Strikes - 3 Outs ) on May 8, 2014 , one of the rarest pitching feats in baseball history? Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price had loaded the bases in the sixth inning, Boxy relieved him, then threw exactly nine pitches, nine were strikes, and Price commented after the game, "If ever I leave the game with runners on, Box is the guy I want to come in. That was incredible. I don't know if that's ever been done in baseball, coming in with the bases loaded, nobody out, and throwing nine strikes and getting three punch-outs. That could be a part of history and I really appreciate it." The historic video:
