Between the crazy weather down here and the 19 inning Reds-Phillies game I didn't hear much about this (http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=15198011&topic_id=&c_id=mlb&tcid=vpp_copy_15198011). Sucks to be him.

Reminds me of Miguel Asencio, who threw 16 pitches, all balls, in his MLB debut against the Sox on April 6, 2002.

Honestly gets kind of uncomfortable to watch after Ball 10.

I remember that game well. I can't believe it was almost 10 years ago!

None of them earned! And none of his walks came around to score!

The pitch that walked in the first run was close, but I doubt I would have called it if I were Iassogna considering the first seven weren't even near the strike zone.

The "ultimate" major league debut belongs to fomer White Sox shortstop Jim Baumer from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

He was signed to a 50,000 bonus contract in 1949 and before his first game at Yankee Stadium later that year in September.....

He fainted.

He never appeared in the big leagues again after that season until 1961 with the Reds!

I remember being in my car listening to this game. Farmer even felt sorry for the guy after the first 3 BB guys or so.

Interesting. Baseball Reference indicates he went 4-for-10 in a half-dozen games (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/gl.cgi?id=baumeji01&t=b&year=1949) after that, but I guess he couldn't overcome that Yankee Stadium impression . . .

Fair point, although after the first three or so balls I'd keep the bat on my shoulder until the ump calls a strike . . .

I love Quade's "***" face when he comes out of the dugout.
