Duane B. (Duke) Sims (born June 5, 1941 in Salt Lake City, Utah) was a Major League Baseball catcher who played from 1964 to 1974 with the Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers.

From 1964 through 1970 was a mainstay of the Cleveland Indians and caught Indians pitcher Sam McDowell through his minor and major league career. The Indians pitching staff of 1965-1970 was recognized as one of the best 4 men staffs in an era with starters going every fourth day. After posting his best offensive year playing left field, right field, first base and catching was traded 2 for 1 in 1971 to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Alan Foster and Ray Lamb and hit a career high .274 in 1971.

Placed on waivers by the Dodgers, Billy Martin took him to the Detroit Tigers in August 1972. His first game as Tiger resulted in a 3 for 5 day with game tying double and game winning off Gaylord Perry, Cy Young winner that year. Subsequently hit .316, 10 game winning or tying hits while catching for Tigers in the Eastern Division Championship season. Played in all 5 games in the championship series both in left field and catching. Was the catcher in game 2 when Bert Campneris threw the bat at Lerrin LaGrow after being hit on the ankle.

Duke left the Tigers in September 1973 and caught the final game in Yankee Stadium before it was remodeled and started the season with the Yankees in 1974 at Shea Stadium before being traded to the Texas Rangers for a player to be name later. (Larry Gura)

Duke holds the distinction of finishing his career with exactly 100 home runs, the current record for a player hailing from the state of Utah. Sims is also credited as the last person to hit a home run in the "old" Yankee Stadium. He did it as a member of the Yankees in a 8-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers on September 30, 1973.

  • problem31 said: [Weekend] Jianshu investment threading easier said Nike Foamposite Pro than done thing bestseller desire of the people of the 'benchmark.' With all the people running the money into the stock market conquests, such as 'learning from scratch stocks', 'K-line Nike Air Jordan 4 charts Getting Started' this 'crash textbook' Economics Nike Blazers and Management books boarded the bestseller list. The more in more than 30 daily limit valuations continue to impact the bottom line today, emphasizing the value of the investment becomes increasingly valuable. We need to go back to look at this before this bull market started publishing the book: 'The easiest thing to invest in.' Some people think this is the interpretation of Buffett's value investing theory the 'localization'. Qiu country Heron author's own experience from many years of investment, this article explores the 'cheap Nike KD V Elite Low is the last word', 'pricing is the core competitiveness', 'abandoned as I prefer, reverse investment' and simple investment principles Air Jordan 12 expounded 'For Air Max for Women most people, the only real value of the investment is to learn, can be mastered.' This view, shared learning is easy for ordinary Nike Lil Penny Posite investors, investment method of operation. Qiu country Heron Yawei although not as prominent, but in any two years the South fund investment managers, public fund managed by the investment income in the top peer. Director of fund management for investment funds on the scale of hundreds of billions, the easiest thing to do is probably worth the investment. Here is the essence of the book summaries: 1. I used to have a partner is a value investor with 30 years of experience. Once I asked him, in 1979 the US market only seven times earnings, Business Week cover story declared dead when the stock market, where Nike Basketball the Nike Air Jordan 5 value investors are running to? He smiled and said, when they were busy to customers explaining why net shrunk by 30% because they had 9 times earnings on a full warehouse. Therefore, the value of the investment is easier said than done. 2. Many people are dismissive of financial analysis, but Nike Kids Sneakers penny-than-expected quarterly profit more Air Jordan 13 or less a penny to heart. In fact, just a little accounting means (to the channel Yahuo, change Nike Air Jordan 13 depreciation methods, inventory revaluation, credit sales) can easily change a Nike Air Jordan 3 few cents earnings per share. Analysis of industry structure and to understand the company's core competence is the 'Road', financial analysis only 'technique', but the latter for the former acts Nike Zoom Shoes of verification and checks. 3. The history of the stock market bottomed Air Jordan Outlet out signals: ① market valuations at historically low levels; ②M1 bottoming out; Nike Air Max ③ lower RRR or interest rates; ④ volume withering; ⑤ Social Security Huijin market; ⑥ holdings of Air Max for Men major shareholders and executives; ⑦ institutions significantly overweight non-cyclicals stocks; ⑧ strong cyclical stocks fell at the defensive, when led up; ⑨ agency positions at historic Nike Air Jordan 7 lows; ⑩ shares suspended or drop stamp duty. 4. Munger careers for young Cheap Nike Free Outlet people have three suggestions: Do not sell Nike Nike KD VI Elite KD VI something you do not believe, do not work for you not admire people who do not and you Nike KD 7 Womens do not like working with people. When the life force, to meet these three conditions are simply luxury. But second, to find a boss you admire, but it is at any time, we Nike Air Jordan should try to adhere to. 5. Nike Air Force one Although the US technology stocks rose in the United States over the past 30 years the best of the industry, a lot of gains hundreds even thousands of times Ushimata, Air Jordans Men's but why the long-term performance as a good investment guru Warren Buffett, Munger, cable Ross, Peter Lynch, did not cast a love of technology stocks? One important reason for this is because the industry technology changes so fast, Lebron James Shoes first-mover advantage is not obvious, moat every 3 to 5 years should once again dig too difficult to grasp. 6. Buy new industries with high valuations fall into the trap of growth is addicted to 'not get' to underestimate the value of the value of buying a sunset industry and fall into the trap of indulging in 'lost.' Investment in the highest risk-adjusted returns than Nike Shoes those likely to be undervalued or 'being owned.' 7. What long-term bull stock industry-prone? Industry concentration continued to improve the industry. Because of this industry threshold, there is a first mover advantage, Nike Shoes Air Jordan Heels Global can not let the waves before the waves die on the beach, easy out Ushimata. Conversely, if the industry increasingly fragmented, indicating that the industry threshold is not high, both leader not deep enough to prevent Chaser moat snatch market share, the industry in general is a city of the first king of the flag, leading the trend a couple year. 8. medium and small companies, management is particularly important. Small and medium companies in more stages by individual heroism. There is a more than twenty billion market capitalization of large companies, but also need Nike Air Max to rely on a mechanism rather than an individual. So the analysis of large companies, I often need to see key performance indicators of the company middle (KPI) is how a given. 9. Some stocks, you may have a position, but fell when your heart is not panic or even want it down a little more so you Opening, this means you already know enough about the stock, have their intrinsic value and future prospects a more accurate grasp than the market, so fluctuations in market prices has not affected your emotions. Ask yourself before you buy the stock, after falling Opening dare you? If you can not, do not buy the best start, because fluctuations in prices is inevitable.
