Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He ( Willie Stargell ) used to have us over to his house. He'd invite the whole team over, have a cookout, say on a Memorial Day if we were at home, or during the Fourth of July, we'd always get together at his house. It was like a family when we were there. That was one of the things that he tried to do, especially for the young ballplayers. He'd try to get them to relax, and would accept them on the team as part of the family." - Pittsburgh Pirates Second Baseman Dave Cash in 'Saying So Long to Starg' (National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Manager of Program Presentations, Essay by Bruce Markusen, 04/10/2001)

Did you know that Dave Cash played exactly three years with the Philadelphia Phillies ( 1974 , 1975 , 1976 ), was an All-Star three times those same years ( 1974 , 1975 , 1976 ), led the National League in at-bats three times those same years ( 1974 , 1975 , 1976 ), and turned the most double plays at second base in the National League three times those same years (1974, 1975, 1976)?

Did you know that Dave Cash is the only Philadelphia Phillies second baseman to take the field at second base in 162 games during a season - and he did it twice? Through today, he remains one of only three second basemen in Major League history to take the field 162 times in a season more than once in a career. Do you think you know who the other two were? [ Answer / Answer ]

On May 21, 1977 , Dave Cash tied the National League record for at-bats in an extra inning game when he had eleven with the Montreal Expos in a 21-inning contest.

The National League single season records for plate appearances -- all time, by a lefty, by a righty, by a switch hitter -- are all held by three different players, each from the Philadelphia Phillies , and Dave Cash has the mark for most plate appearances by a right-handed batter when he had 766 during the 1975 season with the 1975 Philadelphia Phillies .
