MLB 1990s Trivia Facts
The Yankees went 114-98 in 1998. Although it was enough for an American League season record, it wasn't enough for the Major League record. The Cubs set this record in the 1906 season, but with playing in only a 152-game season which makes it more astounding. The Cubs went 116-36, but still lost in the World Series to the Chicago White Sox.
The Marlins began in Major League Baseball in 1993, finishing in sixth place in the NL East of seven teams. In 1997, they finished the season with a 92-70 record, good enough to enter the playoffs as a wildcard. The Marlins beat the Giants in the NLDS, then the Braves in the NLCS, then put the Cleveland Indians down in the World Series, four games to three.
Dave Winfield Traded for Expensive Dinner... In late August 1994, MLB was over two weeks into a strike that interrupted the season. Just before the waiver trade deadline expired, the Minnesota Twins traded aging outfielder/designated hitter Dave Winfield to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later. Two weeks after the trade, on Sept. 14, the rest of the 1994 season was canceled, so Winfield never played for the Indians that season, and no player was ever named in exchange. Later on, executives from both the Indians and Twins got together for a dinner, with Indians’ execs picking up the dinner tab, making Winfield the only player in MLB history ever traded for a five-star meal.
