    Exclamation Random crazy trivia fact

    This comes courtesy of Sarah Spain; newsreader, weekend talk show host and station hottie at WMVP-AM 1000 Chicago:

    Now 49-year-old Jamie Moyer, who started for Colorado on Saturday, has pitched to 8.9% of all MLB players in history who have at least one plate appearance.

    Interesting fact, Dave. Thanks for sharing.

    Cool Re: Random crazy trivia fact

    Here's another one, courtesy of Cubs radio announcer Pat Hughes, a golden voice on WGN Radio 720-AM, though not a hottie (except maybe to his wife):

    A bizarre trivia connection bonds Ceci Fielder and his son, Prince. Both father and son Fielder, after their first 1,000 MLB games, had exacty the same number of home runs (232 each).

    The Cubs were part of three MLB postseason records in their 8-6 defeat of the Cardinals in Game 3 of the NLDS. The Cubs set two game home run records, setting MLB postseason records of 6 HR in 1 game by a team and, with the Cardinals pair of circuit clouts, 8 by both teams in a postseason game.

    Also, Jorge Soler is now the first NLB player ever to reach base in his first 9 plate appearances in the postseason.

    Also, from last night's Mets rout of the Dodgers:

    Yoenis Cespedes hit a round-tripper to become the first MLB player to hit a HR in the postseason in both leagues.

    Sorry to disappoint you guys, but she's spoken for. Not married, but coupled with a longtime boyfriend. She is a rising star at the station, though...knows her sports, has energy, a sense of humor, and is involved with other segments of Chicago sports media.
