Holliday turns 50
HBPs of note: May 31, 2009
Matt Holliday got hit by Kevin Millwood yesterday, which means Holliday is now 50 plunks old. You know, if age was calculated by the number of times you've been hit by a pitch. Millwood has hit 57 batters in his career.
Derrek Lee was hit for the first time this season, yesterday, but it was his 60th career HBP. He'd made it safely through 158 plate appearances this year without being plunked. Six of the thirteen batters who got hit by pitches yesterday got their first 2009 HBP. Casey Kotchman got his 20th HBP.
