Three Pitch Innings


Bill Deane collected three-pitch half-innings for many years. After discovering that six such innings had occurred in 2003, he decided to pass the list on.

Six of the 1910-19 incidents are listed in the 1920 edition of Spalding's Official Base Ball Record, while two others are from the book Walter Johnson, Baseball's Big Train. Many of those from recent years were found by looking through the data at retrosheet.org. Other contributors include, alphabetically, Cliff Blau, Mike Bojanowski, Jim Charlton, Gil Craker, Mike Emeigh, Ed Ho, Jeff James, Scott Longert, Andrew Meeusen, Peter Morris, Gerry Myerson, Iain Read, Tom Ruane, Eric Sallee, Stew Thornley, Dixie Tourangeau, Wayne Townsend, Frank Vaccaro, Lisa Port White, and Allan Wood.

The list is below. I have included links to box scores at Retrosheet, and plan to add more such links someday.
If you know of any other three-pitch innings in the majors, please e-mail me.

An interesting possible three pitch inning occurred September 25, 1998 in the 3rd inning at Arizona. After Tony Gwynn flew out, Greg Vaughn singled, and Ken Caminiti fly out, Vaughn was picked off first by Brian Anderson. Unfortunately, it isn't known whether Anderson had thrown any pitches to Jim Leyritz before the pickoff.
