And Happy Saturday! 🙂
On this day in 1852 the first pre-stamped envelopes were created with legislation of the U.S. Congress.
In 1881 the first tennis championships in the U.S. were played.
In 1950 Gil Hodges of the Brooklyn Dodgers hit four home runs in a single game off of four different pitchers.
In 1959 Sandy Koufax set a National League record by striking out 18 batters.
And in 1964 California officially became the most populated state in America.
Quote of the Day
“People come out to see the players. When do you see a manager anyway? When he’s out on the field arguing with the umpires, making a fool of himself and you know you can’t win, and when he brings out the line-up card.”
Jerry Allison’s birthday is today. He was one of the Crickets.
It’s also Jeff Russo’s.
And Rudolph Schenker’s, so this one is loud.
