2-27-22 We move on to 1985. 1985 featured a bunch of milestones. Tom Seaver won his 300th game. So did Phil Niekro at age 46. Rod Carew had his 3000th hit. Pete Rose broke Ty Cobbs all-time hit record. Oh, we also had an exciting baseball season. The Kansas City Royals won the World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals in a battle of Missouri. They took the I-70 series in seven games behind Bret Saberhagen. Willie McGee who hit .353 won the NL MVP and Don Mattingly took the AL MVP. Dwight Gooden won the pitching triple crown in the NL leading the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts. Quite a season.

3-6-22 We've worked our way up to 1986. 1986 started off great for the Boston Red Sox. Dwight Evans hit the first pitch of the season for a home run at Tiger Stadium, The Red Sox lost that game but had a great year anyway, making it to the World Series. Of course, all the Red Sox fans know that series did not end well for the Sox. Along the way, Roger Clemens set a record (since tied) of 20 strikeouts in a game. He ended up with the AL Cy Young award and AL MVP award. The New York Mets won 108 games in 1986 but needed a miracle and seven games to win the World Series.

3-13-22 Up next is 1987. In 1987 the Minnesota Twins captured the World Series defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games. Frank Viola was the series MVP as he controlled Whitey Herzog's Cardinals. During the season George Bell won the AL MVP while Andre Dawson became the first player ever to win the MVP from a last place team, the Chicago Cubs. Pitching featured Roger Clemens as the AL Cy Young, and Steve Bedrosian the NL Cy Young. Mark McGwire won the AL Rookie of the Year and the AL home run crown with 49 dingers. In the amateur draft the Seattle Mariners took Ken Griffey Jr number one overall. I guess that turned out as a pretty good pick.

3-20-22 Our next featured season is 1988. 1988 will forever be remembered for the first game of the World Series. The underdog Los Angles Dodgers were facing the Oakland Athletics. Oakland had the "Bash Brothers", Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco. Canseco became the first player ever to hit 40 homers and steal 40 bases in the same season. The Dodgers had the awesome pitching led by Orel Hershiser who set the record with 59 consecutive scoreless innings. But it was the injured Kirk Gibson who hit a dramatic pinch hit home run off Dennis Eckersley to win game 1. I vividly remember that at bat. What a moment. Sit back, relax and enjoy a look back at 1988 with "MLB Baseball's Seasons: 1988".

3-27-22 Now due up, Major League Baseball, 1989. A lot of things happened in 1989. The baseball commissioner unexpectedly died of a heart attack but not before banning Pete Rose from Baseball for life for gambling on the game.. Nolan Ryan becomes the first (and still only) pitcher to record 5000 career batters. The Sky Dome opened. It is the first stadium with a retractable roof. The Cincinnati Reds set a record with 12 singles in an inning. Dave Dravecky comes back from cancer in his arm only to break the arm while throwing a pitch. He would never pitch again. And to top off a remarkable season an earthquake during game 3 of the Oakland-San Fransisco World Series delaying the series 10 days. Take a few minutes and relive the memories of 1989 with "MLB Baseball's Seasons: 1989".

4-3-22 We now enter a new decade and move on to 1990. As we sit here in 2022 one could say 1990 started as a mirror image. The owners locked out the players delaying spring training by 32 days. The season started one week late and had to be extended 3 days to get in the 162 games. Wow, history does repeat itself. Once the teams got back on the field a few major league firsts occurred. Andre Dawson was intentionally walked 5 times by the Reds in one game. Two no-hitters were thrown on the same day (by Dave Stewart and Fernando Valenzuela). Ken Griffey Sr and Junior both play in the same game. The first time a father and son played in the same game. The also hit back to back home runs later on in the season. And Bobby Thigpen becomes the first reliever with 50 saves in a season. The pennant races were won by the Oakland A's, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, and Pittsburg Pirates. The A's were thought to be a sure thing but Cincinnati upset them in the World Series. Relax, sit back, and take a few minutes to recall the memories with "MLB Baseball's Seasons: 1990".
