Florida Marlins set more records over the Weekend

New, comment

The Florida Marlins keep rewriting the baseball history books.  (This is part of the catchup.)

On the night he became the newest member of the 30-30 club, Hanley Ramirez preferred to savor the achievement...

That makes Hanley the second player in Marlins history to have at least 30 steals and 30 home runs in the same season.  The first to do it was Preston Wilson.

A quick aside, Preston Wilson could have been something great, he had the talent, but injuries took his career from him.

Now back to the present.

With Hanley getting his 30th home run the Marlins became the first NL club to have three infielder with at least 30 home runs and only the second major club in the history of the game.

...the Marlins only the second team ever to have three infielders hit at least 30 homers each. They joined the 2001 Oakland A's, who did it with Jason Giambi, Eric Chavez and Miguel Tejada.

Naturally, the HOF doesn't care about this either.

Congrats Hanley!  We always knew you had it in you.
