My ticket, three actually, expired for lack of use yesterday when we missed the big Brewer game. Pitcher Trevor Hoffman made history with his 600th save, the first major-league reliever to do so.
I didn't get home until almost 7:00 and the game started at 7:10. No one here was in the mood to go with me and, not being a big baseball fan, didn't even know Hoffman was going for the record.
So, what is the deal anyway? Is it just the big number of 600? Or did someone else have a long-held record of 599 saves and Trevor finally surpassed that? My guess would be he's been in the history books for a while. I don't think a pitcher would willingly stop a streak just short of a big number like 600.
Anyway, sad to have missed the excitement. Didn't even watch it on TV.
