Source of Meteor Found

Unless you are living under a rock, you have heard that another rock (probably bigger than the one under which you are living) crashed into the Earth somewhere in a place the scientific community calls “Russia.” An image is below:

No disrespect to CNN, but the NotGraphs Investigative Reporting Investigation Team has actually done their due diligence and (quite easily) uncovered the source of said meteor. ENHANCE!

I knew it. Just search for “meteor” in Baseball-Reference.

What can’t this phenom do?!

    Firstbaseman Dave Orr led the American Association in a few categories during seasons of the 1880s. Given when he played and that Baseball Reference has him at 5’11” and 250 lbs, he was probably professional baseball’s first meaty Orr.
