The Fish are Changing History

New, 1 comment

It seems like everyday I have a post about some new landmark in the history of the game being set by the team or an individual player.  

Today is no exception.

Not only were the Marlins the first team in 107 years to rally back from being 20 games below .500, they have set a new mark all their own.

Now, on Monday, the Marlins became the first team in history to go from 20 games below .500 to over .500. No team since the 1899 Louisville Colonels had gone from 20 below to get to .500.

Speaking of new marks all their own, Uggla set the team's all-time RBI record for a rookie.

The second baseman set a club rookie record Monday by driving in his 80th and 81st runs of the season on a two-run home run in the seventh inning of Florida's 8-5 win against Arizona.

The old record was set by Mr. Marlin, Jeff Conine, at 79.

When the season started the Marlins had probably the thinnest Media Guide in the all of baseball.  I'm guessing next year's will be somewhat thicker.
