Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"When (Alex) Carrasquel game in from the bullpen, Ossie Bluege , who was coach then, tried to tell the Venezuelan to pitch side-arm to ( Joe ) Glenn , but he couldn't make himself understood. Manager Bucky Harris then had to send his Spanish speaking utility man Robert Estalella out to the mound to give Alex the instructions. The pair jabbered a few minutes, the pitcher nodded, and proceeded to strike out the Yankee on three side-arm pitches." - Columnist Clifford Bloodgood in Baseball Magazine (June 1943)

Did you know that Alex Carrasquel, on May 31, 1943, was part of a unique baseball oddity which has only occurred seven times in Major League history? He relieved out of the Senators bullpen in both ends of a doubleheader and won Game 1 , but lost Game 2 - not that odd. However, Pete Center relieved in both ends of that same doubleheader for the Indians and lost Game 1 , but won Game 2 . Two relievers, two games, same day, both received both the decisions and both split the wins and losses evenly.
Alex Carrasquel Baseball Card
Alex Carrasquel | 2012 Venezuelan Baseball Card (#01) | Baseball Almanac Collection

When Alex Carrasquel made his Major League debut, on April 23, 1939 , he relieved Washington Senators starter Ken Chase with two outs in the fourth inning and a man on first base. The first three batters "Paton" faced were all future Hall of Famers Joe DiMaggio (strikeout), Lou Gehrig (ground out), and Bill Dickey (pop fly).

Alex Carrasquel did not earn the decision, but he did make baseball history, becoming the first Venezuelan -born player in the major leagues ! Shirley Povich (The Washington Post, 04/24/1939, Champions Get 6 Runs in 4 Innings , Page 15) wrote, "Pitching from a big league mound for the first time in his life, Alexandra – who would need only to be climbing over the side of a ship with a cutlass in his teeth to look like one of Lafitte’s fiercest henchmen – gave an amazing exhibition of calm and effectiveness against the Yanks. The Venezuelan , with utter disregard for the reputation of the Yanks , surrendered only one run in the last 5 1/3 innings to the unbridled delight of the 22,000."
