This Date in Baseball History – May 25th


Many pitchers with high strikeout totals tend to be all-or-nothing. They strike out many batters, but give up quite a few walks as well, but on May 25th, 1982, Jenkins became the first pitcher in Major League history to record 3,000 strikeouts while yielding fewer than 1,000 walks. Since Jenkins’ feat, only three other pitchers have accomplished the feat: Greg Maddux, Curt Schilling, and Pedro Martinez.

Mick Gillispie told the story during Sunday’s game between the Smokies and the Mobile BayBears.
