Today, July 19, marks the anniversary of some rather impressive MLB pitching debuts.
It was on July 19, 1936 that teenager Bob Feller first stepped on a MLB mound. 74 years later, he’s still with us. How many people can say they’re still around 74 years after they stepped on a MLB diamond? There can’t be too many.
Still, the best player to debut on July 19 wasn’t a pitcher. It was Honus Wagner.
