Correction: Yankees-Orioles story
BALTIMORE (AP)—In April 20 and April 21 stories about an injury to Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, The Associated Press erroneously reported that Rodriguez and Josh Hamilton of Texas were the only AL players to start every game this season. Many other AL players had also started every game.
"Many other" indeed. These other American League players have appeared in every game their team has played. I am not claiming this list to be 100% complete, either:
Gary Matthews, Jr.
So, Yahoo's guess to the number of players who have played in every game this year (2) was only off by a total of 35, which is within the margin of error (provided the margin of error is +/- 1900%).
