Topic: How to write a 60 second pitch
April 19, 2019 / By Indigo Question:
at my very boring high school, packed with blonde cheerleaders, I am doing a decade project, where we have to pick a decade and pick a topic (consumer,politics,music,fashion,sports,... and I knew right away I was going to chose sports.I chose to focus more on baseball, since I know a helluva lot about the game's players and history than any other sport. Anyway, I picked the 60's (wish I coulda done the 20's cuz I love learning about Lou Gehrig). I got most of the stuff:how the NL dominated pitching (Koufax, Gibson, Marichal), Roger Maris hitting homer number 61;but I need more. So I thought I would write about the players who were rookies (who became HOF'ers), and players who were retiring (who became HOF'ers) during that time. Here's what I got:
ROOKIES IN 60'S:
Carl Yastrzemski (1961)
Reggie Jackson (1967)
Johnny Bench (1967)
Juan Marichal (1960)
Lou Brock (1961)
RETIRED IN 60'S
Ted Williams (1960)
Mickey Mantle (1968)
Yogi Berra (1965)
What I want to do with that info is add more. Can ya help me out with any of those two, either players who were rookies (who became HOF'ers) or players who were retiring (who became HOF'ers) in the 60's decade? Thanks you so much.
Go Irish and Yankees -how the heck does this make me sound unpopular? My school is boring (except when there's a fight during lunch) and the cheerleaders at my school really are bimbos. Time for me to make friends? How bout it's time you find better teams to root for? Good luck.

Originally Answered: Which 4 players should I keep in Fantasy Baseball?
I would say keep:
Arod - This is a no brainer
Howard - The fact that k's do hurt you makes him that much more of an offensive juggernaut
Kinsler - The scarcity of quality @ second base makes it all around game even more valuable, even if you may have to endure a DL stint.
Ellsbury - having him gives you a huge leg up on any opponent in the SB category. Though his help in RBIs' and HR's might be modest, SB, R, Avg and hits are all really strong.
I do not usually keep pitchers unless I have to. If that were the case, I would keep Greinke. I am always leery of players changing leagues, no matter how great they are. I think that amongst all positions, pitching is the easiest position to get quality at very late in the draft. Offense seems to dry up quick if you are not paying attention.
When Stan 'the Man' Musial retired after the 1963 season he held or tie almost every team record of the St. Louis Cardinals. At the time of Stan's retirement he held many National League records... most hits, 3630, doubles 725, hit 5 homeruns in a double header and appeared in 24 All Star games. Some of his records have been equaled or surpassed. Went into the Hall-of-Fame his first year of eligibility, 1969.
Musial's contribution to baseball takes up volumes, much to much for here.
You picked a good subject. Good luck on your essay.

You might want to double check this... but I believe Nolan Ryan was a rookie in '68 or '69.
