Figure 2. MLB ROT by Year and Manager’s Effective Days of Rest

Figure 2. MLB ROT by Year and Manager’s Effective Days of Rest. Includes League Alliance teams, 1877, and the IA and NA from 1877 to 1880. League ROT averages steep incline levels off at 1907, ending a fourteen year period in which the average rest for a starting pitcher doubled. Newspapers at the time continually lamented the disappearance of the great batters of the 1890’s. (FRANK VACCARO)
