Baseball will forever be connected with the number nine. From the fact that there are nine positions on the field to there being 27 outs in a game to the bases being spaced 90 feet apart there is always a number nine involved when you are talking about baseball.
To celebrate the numerology equivalent of a perfect game, Major League Baseball is introducing something they are calling the All-Time Nine for each team. The All-Time Nine allows fans to vote on who would make up the best hitters by position for each franchise. Voting begins September 9 (09/09/09) on mlb.com as well as on each team’s web site and will continue all day.
