I've been going to games since August 8, 1973....and on August 22, 2004, finally, a foul ball came my way. I had to reach for it, and it deflected off the tip of my right index finger. Shoot, if I was only 4 inches taller!

Are you sure about that? On May 5, 1925 Everett Scott streak of 1307 games was stopped while he was a member of the Yankees. If you add up the games he would have Matsui beat.

Everett Scott
1921 played with Boston
1922 154 games
1923 152 games
1924 153 games
1925 15 games
==============
TOTAL 473 games

Hideki Matsui
2003 163 games
2004 162 games
2005 77 games (as of 6/30/05)
==============
TOTAL 402 games

Or is it Which Yankee's all-time all-team streak?

Quote:
Tue Jun 14 2005 - Hideki Matsui's (ankle) consecutive games played streak is in danger if he doesn't start tonight. Matsui has played in 1,637 consecutive games dating back to his days in Japan. ''We'll miss him (if he can't play),'' manager Joe Torre said, ''but the last thing we have to worry about now is somebody's streak.'' If Matsui starts, it will likely be at designated hitter.

I think whoever did the TV graphic got it wrong based on what Utter posted.
