Detroit Out of Time, Out of Playoffs
Sunday, October 1st, 2000
Any faint hope of playoff contention the Detroit Tigers might have had is now a thing of the past -- the Tigers was mathematically eliminated from postseason consideration today.

This is the club's 12th playoff miss in a row. They last appeared in the postseason in 1988. In total, the Tigers have missed the playoffs 83 times in their 99-year history. Detroit last won the World Series in 1979.
NL Selects Rookie Star of the Month
Sunday, October 1st, 2000
Youngster Arturo Rodríguez emerged as the latest NL Rookie of the Month today. The young man from St. Louis deserved the honor, batting .392 with 8 home runs and 21 runs batted in. Is the month of September a harbinger of things to come or just a fluke? We'll find out someday, but for now, we'll just let Rodríguez enjoy the limelight.

So far this season Rodríguez has put up a .311 batting average with 156 hits, 25 home runs and 103 RBIs.
AL Names Rookie of Month
Sunday, October 1st, 2000
Baltimore's Justin Morneau collected 32 hits to snare the AL Rookie of the Month for September.

He batted .323 with 9 home runs, 25 RBIs and 19 runs scored.

The 19-year-old is barely old enough to shave, but he could definitely contend for Rookie of the Year if he keeps up this pace.

In his season totals Morneau has 23 home runs and a .295 batting average.
