MLB 1990s Trivia Facts
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.
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.
Nixon stole six against the Montreal Expos and catcher Gil Reyes. In setting this NL record, Otis tied the Major League record set by Eddie Collins of the AL Philadelphia Athletics in 1912. The Expos still won the game, 1-0. Nixon led the Braves in 1991 with 72 stolen bases, a career high
