Sam Edmonston (P) Was vs Phil 6/24/1907.   Park was Columbia Park, Philadelphia.  

And he had a team-mate named "Bull Durham".  Pitched a total of 29 innings over 4 seasons.  He didn't really make it in the "show"

I don't really object to it, because it is within the rules and they are certainly open to all of us, but using 2013 players I think goes against the spirit of what "cup of coffee" player means.  We won't know for several years whether these guys were truly "1-gamers" or whether they were just young players making their first appearance in 2013.

Again, no objection to using them within the theme rules as written, but perhaps for future seasons of the theme you might consider limiting it players whose 1 game happened prior to 2010 or something?

A few seasons back Adam Greenberg was selected based on his one game with the Cubs in 2005... during that SIM season (2012) he had a "comeback" appearance with the Marlins.  I know we're taking a chance that 2013 coffee players might have more slurps in the bigs but you never know...

I'll play.  My cuppa joe player is Al Burris - June 22, 1894.  A problem is that the stadium the game was played in does not exist among the available ballparks.  Burris pitched for the Phillies against the old Baltimore Orioles in a game in Baltimore.  The 1894 version of Oriole Park (Oriole Park III) isn't an option.  There is a later version of Oriole Park (Oriole Park IV) available.  There is a stadium listed for the 1894 Phillies, I could play there.  Or I could play in Oriole Park IV.  What's your preference?
