    No, it’s not a song from Rent. It’s the number of batters faced by Red Ruffing while he wore a Yankees uniform – the most ever by a Yankees pitcher.

    I have to think, if some were asked, what Yankees pitcher faced the most batters all-time, most would have guessed “Whitey Ford.” And, Ford was close – he’s second all-time with 13,036.

    Call me crazy, but, I don’t think we’ll ever see someone break this record. That’s a lot of batters.
