Klu,

Thanks for these posts each day. It must take a lot of work to do this on a daily basis. Redszoners are lucky to have such threads.

Klu,

Thanks for these posts each day. It must take a lot of work to do this on a daily basis. Redszoners are lucky to have such threads.

You're welcome. I'm glad you enjoy it. I started this almost two years ago, when we were all complaining about Jerry Narron's lineup construction. I wondered what the lineups looked like 50 years (1957) and 30 years (1977) in the past, so I looked them up. Then for counterpoint, I also looked up the lineup from 25 years in the past (1982). I got a good response, so I expanded the thread. I enjoy looking back into history, as I am sort of an amateur historian, and I will continue to post these threads as long as the response continues to be favorable, and people still want to read about them.

They must have started this DH by noon and had a couple of quick games to fit them in before darkness fell on Wrigley. It wasn't uncommon to have a few games a year suspended by darkness and picked up the next day or next time a team came to Wrigley.
