Ralph HoukFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6/11/2007) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_HoukRalph George Houk (born August 9, 1919 in Lawrence, Kansas), nicknamed "The Major," is a former catcher, coach, manager, and front office executive in Major League Baseball. He is best known as the successor of Casey Stengel as the manager of the New York Yankees from 1961-63, when he won three consecutive American League pennants and the 1961-62 World Series championships. Frank RobinsonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Robinson (5/30/2007) Frank Robinson (born August 31, 1935 in Beaumont, Texas), is a Hall of Fame former Major League Baseball player. He was an outfielder, most notably with the Cincinnati Reds and the Baltimore Orioles. During a 21-season career, he became the first player to win League MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues, won the Triple crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently sixth).During the last two years of his playing career, he served as the first permanent African-American manager in Major League history, managing the Cleveland Indians to a 186-189 record. He went on to manage the San Francisco Giants, the Baltimore Orioles, the Montreal Expos and the Washington Nationals. Batting order (baseball)From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6/11/2007) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batting_order_%28baseball%29The batting order in baseball is the sequence in which the nine members of the offensive lineup take their turns in batting against the pitcher. The batting order is set by the manager before the game begins (although substitutions may subsequently take place). If a team bats out of order, it is a violation of baseball's rules and subject to penalty.In modern American baseball, some batting positions have nicknames: "leadoff" for first, "cleanup" for fourth, and "last" for ninth. Others are known only by the ordinal numbers. That is probably because batting positions are barely specialized. Particular players are used in different batting positions, both from game to game and throughout their careers, much more than they are used in different fielding positions. If a fan or writer knows the primary fielding positions of dozens of historical players and all regular players on several active teams, that same person probably knows the primary batting positions of merely several historical players and all regular players on only one active team (the current batting order of the nearest major league team).
