The 2006 World Series is the only Series in MLB history that two rookie pitchers started against each other in Game 1.
Well, in the first season of Baseball, everybody was a rookie...
I wasn't able to exactly find rookie starters, but what I can do is find the most games started for a team in a season by pitchers who were making their 40th career game or less. Since 1954.
The record for THAT, for what it's worth, is held by the fire-sale 1998 Florida Marlins, who had 139 starts by such players, and it isn't even close. 2nd place is the 1996 Oakland A's with 120.
Hope this helps!
a bunch. here's a list of the youngest world series starters:
why is spec shea not included in the list of rookie pitchers starting a world series game
Yes. He won game 7 of the 2002 World Series against the Giants in his rookie season.
Starting pitchers for Game 1 of the 2007 World Series were Josh Beckett for the Boston Red Sox and Jeff Francis for the Colorado Rockies.
No pitcher has ever hit 2 home runs in one World Series game. Bob Gibson and Dave McNally are the only two pitchers to have hit 2 home runs in their World Series careers.
In Game 1 of the 1996 World Series, rookie Andruw Jones of the Atlanta Braves hit home runs in his first two at bats.
Ron Guidry and Jerry Reuss
In the World Series the pitchers only bat when the game is played in the National League park. When the game is played in the American League park the Designated Hitter is used.
Freddie Lindstrom in 1924, Joe Garagiola in 1946 and Jacoby Ellsbury in 2007 all had 4 hits in a World Series Game.
The original scheduled starting pitchers for Game 3 of the 1989 World Series that was postponed due to the Loma Prieta earthquake were Bob Welch for the Oakland Athletics and Don Robinson for the San Francisco Giants. When the game was played, 10 days after the earthquake, the starting pitchers were Dave Stewart for the Athletics and Scott Garrelts for the Giants. Those two were the same pitchers that started Game 1.
In the 1947 World Series, the New York Yankees started rookie pitcher Spec Shea and rookie catcher Yogi Berra in Game 1. In the 2007 National League Division Series (NLDS), the Philadelphia Phillies started rookie pitcher Kyle Kendrick and rookie catcher Carlos Ruiz in Game 2. There are probably others.
Ken Holtzman (Oakland) and Gary Nolan (Cincinnati)
1st African American to win a world series game is joe black of the Brooklyn dodgers. The game was on 10-01-1952 and it was the Brooklyn dodgers vs New York yankess.
