Classic Yankees: Johnny Sain




Spahn and Sain and pray for rain…


Although Johnny Sain is famous for that phrase associated with the 1948 Boston Braves, he also made a considerable impact on the Yankees, both as a player and as a coach.


In 1942, Sain, age 24, made it to the majors with the Boston Braves. His manager was the one and only Casey Stengel. He started three games, relieved in 37 more, and was 4-7, six saves, with an ERA of 3.90, ERA+ of 85.


He then lost three full years due to WWII service.


Upon his return, Sain was a 20-game winner in 1946, 1947, 1948 and 1950, teaming up with Warren Spahn—thus the famous rhyme.


In 1946, Sain was 20-14, 2.21 with an ERA+ 157. He led the NL in CG and finished fifth in the MVP voting.


1947 saw Sain go 21-12, 3.52, ERA+ 112. He was named to the All-Star team and finished 16th in the All-Star voting. On April 15, 1947, it was Sain who was the first MLB pitcher to face Jackie Robinson.


In 1948, the Braves won the pennant. Across town, ..read more

1931 New York Yankees Line-up Switch with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig fails



May 4, 1931- In an effort to put less strain on his leg, New York Yankees outfielder Babe Ruth played 1B as Lou Gehrig moved to right field. Gehrig committed a costly error in the outfield helping the Washington Senators beat the New York Yankees by a score of 7-3. This change of positions experiment ends the next day with Yankees Manager Joe McCarthy sending the 2 players back to their regular positions.

Major,


Thank you for the article. The writer miss a very important  point that Johnny Sain left the Yankees when Yogi Berra was named Yankees Manager in October of 1963. Johnny Sain didn't want to work with Yogi, that's how Whitey Ford was asked to be the pitching coach for the 1964 Yankees.
