Cooperstown Bottom Feeders vs 1978 NY Yankees

Rube Marquard vs Ron Guidry

Five Run 5th Too Much For Yankees

Freddie Lindstrom

At 18 years old, Freddie Lindstrom is the youngest player to ever play in a World Series.(1924)

Once again the game started out well for the 78 Yankees. Mickey Rivers turned on the 1st pitch of the game from Rube Marquard and deposited it into the right field stands for a leadoff home run. For good measure he did it again in the 3rd inning. Unfortunately for the Yankees, Ron Guidry struggled, never getting out of the 5th inning. Cooperstown unloaded on Guidry for 5 runs in the inning. Dave Bancroft and Chick Hafey smacked back to back pitches off the centerfield wall for doubles, and Freddy Lindstrom bombed a big 3 run home run, sending Guidry to an early shower, and giving Cooperstown a 7-2 lead after 5.

The Yankees fought back and showed signs of life when Thurman Munson hit a 2 run home run in the 9th to bring them within 1 run. Herb Pennock came on in relief, and struck out Graig Nettles with the tying run on 2nd to end the game.

  1. Those Hall of Famers are playing like, well, Hall of Famers.

      I programmed each HOFer with a random season. Some were very good seasons, some not so good. The pitchers were especially poor. Their offense and depth is still way above the 78 yankees. My boys don’t have a chance.
