The Daily Catch: Sept 30, 2022

The magic number is...1! One, ah, ah, ah.

Happy Friday, Mariners fans! I’m beginning to welcome the sound of the garbage truck outside my house on these days because it means it’s Friday. And today is a special Friday, today is the day we might clinch a postseason spot for the first time since 2001. I’m wearing my Northwest Green Griffey Jr. jersey — what are you wearing to celebrate the occasion?

Yesterday’s Answer: Yesterday we asked you how many Cincinnati natives were on the original 1869 all-professional Cincinnati Red Stockings squad.

And the correct answer is.... Only 1! That player was first baseman Charlie Gould. Most of the others were from the mid-Atlantic, while one, left fielder Andy Leonard, was from Ireland.
