Jim Palmer Goes The Distance…
I like numbers. I like odd numbers. I like impressive numbers. In my line of work, I constantly play with numbers.
Of all of the impressive numbers on Jim Palmer’s resume, the one that stands out to me the most is: 211!
Jim Palmer threw 211 complete games during his magnificent 19-year baseball career. Having started a total of 558 games during the regular season, Palmer went the distance in 37.8% of them!!!
By today’s standards nobody is even close to comparable!!! Atta boy Mr. Palmer!!!
