Did you know that Arthur Rhodes is one of only eight players in Major League history to have played for both the American and National League teams that reached the World Series during the same season? Did you know that of the elite eight, only three of them actually appeared in a World Series game for one of the two teams (they appear below in bold print)?

Arthur Rhodes has appeared on the mound as a starting pitcher, a relief pitcher, and a middle reliever. In 2010, eighteen years after he made his debut, Rhodes was named to his first All-Star Game ( 2010 ) due in part to his thirty-three consecutive appearances that season on the mound, without allowing a single run (He was the fifth player to go to his first All-Star Game after age 40, joining Satchel Paige , Connie Marrero , Jamie Moyer and Tim Wakefield .). A reporter, after the record tying streak ended, asked Rhodes why he had recently begun writing "J R" in the dirt on the mound before he pitched:
Arthur Rhodes 2010 All-Star Game

Arthur Rhodes will leave tickets for five people at the All-Star Game on Tuesday in Anaheim. His mother will be there, and two sisters, a niece and his 16-year-old daughter, Jade. Five women supporting a 40-year-old rookie All-Star.

A boy will be there, too. Rhodes, a left-handed reliever for the Cincinnati Reds, is sure of it. Rhodes's son, Jordan, was 5 when he died in December 2008 of an undisclosed illness. Whenever Rhodes pitches, he scratches the initials "J R" in the dirt of the mound. He will do so again at the All-Star Game.

"I feel like he's right behind the rubber, watching me pitch," Rhodes said.

Rhodes spoke softly at his locker Tuesday before a game with the Mets at Citi Field. He rarely says much, anyway. He signed with the Reds the week his son died, but club officials never knew of his pain. On Sunday, when Manager Dusty Baker told Rhodes he had made the All-Star team, he said Rhodes was stoic.

Baker said. "And he wouldn't be Arthur if he was talking all about it."

Rhodes did not speak publicly about his son’s death until last month. After he ended a streak of 33 consecutive appearances without allowing a run, which tied the single-season major league record, a reporter asked what Rhodes wrote in the dirt. Rhodes decided to answer. There was no reason to hide it anymore.

Rhodes could have retired after the 2008 season, but he said he kept playing to honor his son’s memory. The Reds are glad — and awed — that he did.

In 1999, Major League Baseball began to recognize and record the hold statistic. In the rulebook, they wrote the following excerpt ( Link ) about the hold stat:

"The hold is not an official statistic, but it was created as a way to credit middle relief pitchers for a job well done. Starting pitchers get wins, and closers -- the relief pitchers who come in at the end of the game -- get saves, but the guys who pitch in between the two rarely get either statistic. So what's the most important thing one of these middle relievers can do? 'Hold' a lead. If a reliever comes into a game to protect a lead, gets at least one out and leaves without giving up that lead, he gets a hold. But you can't get a save and a hold at the same time."

The year after the hold stat was "created", we created a holds record book and Arthur Rhodes is currently the Major League record holder for most holds in a career . Another record related to Rhodes, he is the franchise leader for wins in a season by a Seattle Mariners pitcher who did not lose a game. In 2001, Arthur went 8-0 breaking the team record set by Roy Thomas in 1985, who went 7-0.
