Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"But, is he (Alcides Escobar) ever a shortstop! He believes he was born to play the position. To carry a legacy at a position that made his country's baseball players famous. He's quick, he's fluid, his speed and arm strength allow him to envision outs from angles that most shortstops don't even consider." - Milwaukee Brewers Broadcaster Brian Anderson (Brian Anderson's House of Blogs, Brian Anderson, 02/09/2010)

Did you know that when Alcides Escobar was awarded the 2015 Gold Glove Award , he was the first Kansas City Royals shortstop to receive the honor? Maybe it had something to do with plays like the one below, described perfectly by MLB on Twitter with, "Alcides Escobar just dropping jaws" and on Vine with, "Alcides. Stop it!"

Alcides Escobar Barehanded Double Play | Vine Loop by MLB.com | June 6, 2015

During the 1929 World Series , Mule Haas hit an inside the park home run. The next player to match that feat during a Fall Classic was Alcides Escobar, who hit an inside-the-parker during Game 1 of the 2015 World Series . Those who came before Escobar and Haas were, Lou Gehrig ( 1928 World Series ), Tommy Thevenow ( 1926 World Series ), Casey Stengel ( 1923 World Series ), Larry Gardner ( 1916 World Series ), Hy Myers ( 1916 World Series ), Duffy Lewis ( 1915 World Series ), Patsy Dougherty ( 1903 World Series ), and Jimmy Sebring ( 1903 World Series ).

Besides being Major League shortstops, what do Dick Howser (1964), Jim Fregosi (1966), Ed Brinkman (1973), Alfredo Griffin ( 1982 , 1985 , 1986 ), Cal Ripken Jr. ( 1983 , 1984 , 1986 , 1987 , 1989 , 1991 , 1992 , 1993 ), Tony Fernandez ( 1986 ) Alex Rodriguez (2002), Miguel Tejada (2001, 2002, 2003 , 2004 ), and Alcides Escobar ( 2014 ) have in common? They are the only shortstops from the American League to appear in all 162 regular season games (bold years mean they started all 162 games as well).
