A Strawberry Statement


________________________________________________________________________________________________


...
...
You do not have to be a baseball maniac
to appreciate this list from
BASEBALL ALMANAC

For example, if the term
Father and Son
means anything to you,
see the names ranked 
#4  and  #258
a/k/a
Barry Bond and Bobby Bonds 

Consider the word
Godfather:
Bobby played 
on the same as
Willie Mays
who is the
Godfather of Barry
!!!

The title of this page
refers to a thingie called
 Benchmark   

as in 1000 of something:

In the entire history
of Major League Baseball,
Darryl Strawberry
is the only player
to have exactly
1000
Runs Batted In

In the entire history
of the planet,
there have been
approximately
16,000
Major League
Baseball Players

Only 282 of them
had more RiBbIes
than Darryl 
!!!
!!!

The 1000 RBI Club
is indeed an exclusive subset
when only 283 out of 16,000
people qualify for membership


283 out of
It is no coincidence that
an exclamation mark
looks like a baseball ball
standing on a baseball
!!!
!!!

Another benchmark:
1,000,000,000

That is approximately
how many memories
this list can inspire
!!!
!!!
