Their (MLB.com, Others?) Fine Note, I Add (Literally)

October 28, 2016

What follows below was written on MLB.com, if not other places. As you might know, I like this kind of “stuff.” I will add some notes following “their” note.

“After dropping Game 1 of the World Series, the Cubs bounced back on Wednesday night, with a 5-1 victory over the Indians at Progressive Field.

The series-evening triumph was the first World Series game win for the franchise since Game 6 of the 1945 Fall Classic on Oct. 8, 1945. That’s a span of 25,952 days, which is a numerical palindrome (the same number forwards and backwards).”

I “added” the following.

Here is how they determined the number: 71 years multiplied by 365 days, equals 25,915 days.

Add the one extra day, in the 18 leap years since 1945. That becomes 25,933. Then add the 19 days from (October 8th-October 26th) inclusive, which is 19.

The number is 25,952–the same number forwards or backwards, as stated above.
