Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Talk about being in the zone, Doug Fister was really in the zone on Thursday. The Detroit pitcher set an American League record with nine consecutive strikeouts in the Tigers' 5-4 win over Kansas City, but wasn't even aware of it until the fans at Tiger Stadium gave him a standing ovation. He even waved off his own first baseman, Prince Fielder , who wanted him to pause and take in the moment. 'Honestly, I had no idea,' Fister told the Associated Press. ' Prince was yelling at me to step off during the inning, and I kind of looked at him. Normally, he'll do that, to slow me down, if I'm getting too quick .... I thought that was kind of what he was doing there. He just said, ''Hey, step off.'' I look at him, and he kept looking at me, and he said, ''Aw, I'll tell you later.'" - By Houston Mitchell in the Los Angeles Times (09/28/2012, 'Doug Fister was unaware he set record with 9 straight strikeouts', Source )

Did you know on September 27, 2012 , Doug Fister came within one strikeout of matching Tom Seaver's Major League record of ten consecutive strikeouts ? He struck out Salvador Perez Perez grounded out to the shortstop on a two-strike pitch in the seventh inning - nine consecutive strikeouts setting a new American League record . Jeff Francoeur said after the game, "It's crazy, to go through a whole lineup and strike everybody out, and I don’t think he threw more than four pitches to any of the batters."

Doug Fister Strikeout Record | September 27, 2012 | MLB Advanced Media

Did you know that besides setting the new American League record mentioned above, Fister also broke the team (Detroit Tigers) record for most consecutive strikeouts which was seven straight, set by Denny McLain ( June 15, 1965 ) then tied by John Hiller ( October 1, 1970 )?

Did you know that Doug Fister started twenty-five games in 2014, and walked less than twenty-five batters that season - the first instance in Washington Nationals history?

Doug Fister is an avid jogger who regularly puts in 10-mile routes during the regular season between his starts, saying in USA Today (Joseph White, 'Nationals new starter Doug Fister to run in DC', Source ), "It's something that for me clears any sort of mental or physical problems. Being able to get out there on the open road and just run, it's a release of energy and release of stress for me."

Doug Fister, in that same article, mentioned how his father, a former police officer, SWAT member, turned fireman, left an impression on him off and on the mound, ""As a kid, you see your dad as Superman, and I still do, but being around the SWAT team, you're still in awe. It's like you watch in D.C., with all the different agencies around. I love the CIA, the FBI, all the different agencies, how they coordinate, how they work. Tactically how they handle a situation. That's kind of how I've been brought up. It's not just go out there and shoot, shoot, shoot. It's, tactically, why would I be doing this? I need to make a decision if this is right, if this is wrong, and just kind of making every decision at the snap. I try to take those things in terms of baseball and switch them around to how I may be able to interpret them for my best of what I do here."

Pitching Style: Doug Fister is primarily a sinkerball pitcher saying, "My main pitching sequence is a sinker. I try to attack with that." Across his career he has thrown five pitches, the sinker (40% / 89 MPH), a splitter (20% / 81 MPH), a curveball (19%, 74 MPH), a cutter (16%, 86 MPH), and his fastball (5%, 90 MPH). Mark DeRosa described (in The Washington Post, Adam Kilgore, 12/06/2013, Source ) Fister's favorite pitch saying, "He's got one of those sinkers that obliterates the inner half of the plate. It's got so much movement on it that half the time to three-quarters of the time the ball, if you take, it ends up being a ball but it looks so appetizing for 55 feet that you go after it."
