1. Born On This Date: 1958 Dave Henderson
    Hendu was a part of the great Oakland A’s teams of the late 80’s that went to 3 straight World Series. He was an All-Star in 1991.

    July 15, 1967
    Cardinals’ pitcher Bob Gibson’s right fibula is fractured by a Roberto Clemente line drive during a 6-3 loss to the Pirates. The injury will sideline Gibson until Labor Day, but he will recover well enough to allow only three earned runs in three complete World Series game victories over the Red Sox.

     
  4. On this night celebrating the home run, we honor the all-time home run king, Hank Aaron. The Hammer finished with 755 career long balls but never hit 50 in a season.

     
  5. Maybe the best thing ever.

     
     
  6. And the Astros only have 7 fewer wins than the Yankees.

     
  7. On This Date - July 9
    2002: The All-Star Game in Milwaukee ends in a 7-7 tie. This leads to a horrible new rule in which an exhibition game, with players chosen by fans, determines home field in the World Series. Is Bud Selig retired yet?

    There was only one night game a year. On the 4th of July the whole sky would brighten up with fireworks, giving us just enough light for a game. (The Sandlot)
