            Happened on this date:

                        1990: Ken Griffey Sr. y Ken Griffey Jr., of the Mariners, become the first father-son duo to hit home runs in the same major league game. It was a back-to-back against California Angels pitcher Kirk McCaskill.

                        2008: For the first time in modern Major League Baseball history, there is a no-hitter in a “neutral” stadium. Due to Hurricane Ike, the game between the Cubs and Astros was played in Milwaukee, where Venezuelan right-hander Carlos Zambrano threw a no-hit, no-run game against the Astros.

Trivia:

Three players share the record for most 100+ runs-batted-in seasons in the majors. Jimmie Foxx, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth each had that plateau in 13 campaigns.

Quote of the day:

“Friendships are forgotten when the game begins.”
