Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I didn't have a long career [six years and a 54-56 record] but I did get into four World Series and won a game that a lot of people still remember. I still get a kick going back for Old Timers days and seeing some of the guys I played with on the Yankees." - Johnny Kucks in Yankees: Where Have You Gone? (Maury Allen, Sports Publishing, 02/01/2004, 'Johnny Kucks', Page 124)

Did you know that Johnny Kucks won the final game ( Game 7 ) of the 1956 World Series between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers , shutting out the Dodgers, 9-0 at Ebbets Field , the last World Series game ever played in that stadium?

Ninth inning. Game 7 . Kucks looking for a complete game victory. Jim Gilliam ground out to first. Pee Wee Reese hit a pop fly in foul territory. Duke Snider singled. Jackie Robinson at the plate, man on first, two outs, and the future hall of famer went down on strikes, the last at-bat of his Major League career.
