Just reading random articles and ran across this in the St Louis Post Dispatch:

Read down to the bottom where it talks about least amount of pitches thrown by a pitcher in a complete game 9 inning shutout.

How many would you guess? 60? 50? Try 39. Cardinals vs Giants inj 1979.

The first 8 batters on the Giants swung on the first pitch and made an out. 24 Giants batters swung and hit a ball fair on the first pitch thrown.

Talk about being aggressive at the plate...
