Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"He's (Gerrit Cole) really good. I've caught some really good ones, and I've been impressed -- with his stuff, his demeanor, his makeup on the mound. Stuff-wise, he has an electric arm and he knows how to use it. He's freakin' good. If he's not the best, he's right up there," Martin had added. "He can really pitch. There'll be a learning curve there, learning how to deal with adversity, but I would not be surprised if that kid is one of the best in the game -- soon." - Russell Martin on MLB.com (Tom Singer, 06/08/2013, 'Hurdle: 'It's just the right time' for Cole's promotion', Source )

Gerrit Alan Cole is an active Major League Baseball player who pitches for the Houston Astros (2018-Today), formerly with the Pittsburgh Pirates (2013-2017). The Cole Train, his nickname, was not the first Orange Lutheran High School (Orange, CA) graduate to be drafted (Minor Leaguer Daniel Renken was drafted a year earlier), but Gerrit was their first ballplayer selected in the first round!

Did you know that Gerrit Cole is the first pitcher in Major League history to defeat former Cy Young Award winners in each of his first two big league starts? On June 11, 2013 , Cole made his debut and defeated Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum (2008 & 2009). Then, in his second start, on June 16, 2013 , Cole defeated Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke (2009).

On August 28, 2019, Gerrit Cole struck out 14 hitters. During his next start, on September 2, 2019, Gerrit remained consistent, striking out 14 hitters, again. Six days later, on September 8, 2019, The Cole Train tied Justin Verlander's Minute Maid Park record, striking out 15 hitters. The three consecutive games with 14-or-more strikeouts was a pitching feat accomplished only once before in baseball history! Do you know what hall of fame did it in 1999? [ Answer ]
