Okay, just for fun, let me post a few numbers, names, and other oddities that have to do with baseball. I'm am very confident that you will know precisely what each of these refer to.
12 perfect innings and a loss
7 (This one may be a bit ambiguous, but I think you'll get it.)
.367 -- Highest career batting average (Cobb) I think this got rounded down to .366 a few years ago due to some scoring reconsideration. But, as kids, it was always .367!
56 -- Joe D's "The Streak"
.406 -- Last .400 season. Teddy Ballgame in 1941
12 perfect innings and a loss -- Harvey Haddix. Do you know how the game ended? It's a cool story. Kind of an oddity in itself.
Walt Dropo -- not sure what about Dropo is uniquely significant.
7 (This one may be a bit ambiguous, but I think you'll get it.) -- For the longest time I was stuck on Mickey Mantle's uniform # but then realized you probably meant Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters.
