Honoring Jon Ratliff's Cup Of Coffee In The Bigs

Chances are you've never heard of Jon Ratliff.

I know I never heard of him. He pitched a grand total of one game in the big leagues for the 2000 Oakland A's.

That's one day more than I ever spent in the show.

And Don Marquez, Oakland A's superfan, friend of Sully Baseball and the author of the wonderful book Generation A's Fans, wrote a wonderful post on Athletics Nation today about Ratliffs one inning (and 12 pitches) in the bigs and where he is now.

For all of us who wanted the experience of being a big leaguer even for just one day, it's a fabulous read.
