Grammer School: Cooperstown goes after CDO graduate

The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., came calling for Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler after the Canyon del Oro High graduate went crazy at the plate Wednesday night.

Kinsler had six hits in six plate appearances and hit for the cycle (homer, triple, double and single in same game), becoming the first player to hit for the cycle while recording six hits in a nine-inning game in just under 119 years.

From Tom Singer’s article on MLB.com:

“According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the previous player to turn the trick was William Farmer Weaver, on Aug. 12, 1890, for Louisville against Syracuse in the American Association, at that time considered the second major league to the National League.”

On Thursday, the Hall of Fame was seeking game-worn items – jersey, glove, shoes, batting gloves; whatever Kinsler is OK with giving away – to put on display to honor his historic achievement, which came in a 19-6 win over Baltimore.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
