Today in baseball history: Oct. 17
Okay, offseason is here, so I have more time to dedicate to this.
1989 - Minutes before Game 3 of the World Series between Oakland and San Francisco, an earthquake hit the Bay area. The game was postponed and the Series resumed 11 days later.
Happy Birthday to ex Cub John Mabry.
2005 The juiced Minute Maid Park crowd, anticipating the Astros first National League crown after the first two batters are retired, is ‘pulperized’ as Albert Pujols hits a two out three-run ninth inning homer . A two-strike single stroked by David Eckstein and a walk worked out by Jim Emmonds set the stage for the Cardinals dramatic 5-4 comeback.
(Lidge has been said to have never been the same since, and also has been said that the ball Pujols hit off him hasn't landed yet! LOL)
2006 Lou Pinella is hired as the Cubs new manager
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?
