ARAIGBB84 Season Starting Soon!

The Tigers became 3rd team to go 1st place wire-to-wire and win the World Series. (1927 NY Yankees, 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers). They were the first to do so in the expansion era. Only the Tigers and the ’27 Yankees had gone wire-to-wire without ever trailing in the postseason (the ’55 Dodgers trailed 3-2 before winning the last two games against the vaunted Yanks). Both these feats were matched by the Cincinnati Reds 6 years later.

The season started with a 9-game winning streak by eventual World Series champions Detroit Tigers who started the season 35 wins and 5 losses and never relinquished the first place lead....defeating the San Diego Padres 4-1 in the World Series

There were a number of milestones reached in 1984.

  • Phil Niekro celebrated Independence Day by becoming the 9th pitcher to record 3,000 career strikeouts (Nolan Ryan struck out his 3,000th on the same day 4 years earlier).
  • During the year, Ryan replaced Steve Carlton permanently as the all-time strikeout king.
  • At the All-Star game in Candlestick Park in July, Gary Carter homered to become just the 3rd player to win 2 All-Star Game MVPs, joining Willie Mays and Steve Garvey (Cal Ripken has since joined this group).
  • As mentioned, Pete Rose became just the 2nd player with 4,000 hits. He also joined Cobb as the 2nd player with 3,000 singles, and broke Cobb’s career singles record in July (3,053).
  • Rose also became the first player with 22 consecutive seasons of 100 hits, and he broke Stan Musial’s National League record for career doubles (726).
  • Another record for Rose – on June 29th, he played in game #3509 of his career, passing Carl Yastrzemski in front of his former hometown fans at Riverfront Stadium. He went 0-for-5, but the Expos won 7-3.
  • Reggie Jackson hit his 500th home run on September 17th in Kansas City, where he started his career 17 years earlier.
  • On the last day of the season, September 30th, Mike Witt pitched a perfect game, hurling the Angels to a 1-0 win over the Texas Rangers.
