Random fact: The Angels were 33-44, with 85 ties, after the first inning. They finished the season with a 97-65 record, which means that they were 64-21 after the first inning. They were not only slow starters during the season, they were slow starters during their games.
The team with the worst first-inning record was the New York Mets: 31-45 with 86 ties. Suffice to say that they didn’t climb out of their early-game holes nearly as well as the Angels did.
