Today in Baseball History 

I added a link to This Date In Baseball History in the upper righthand corner of the page. For those of you unwilling or too lazy to go there, these entries are included today:

1925 White Sox Ted Lyons loses his no-hit bid when Senator Bobby Veach hits safely with two outs in the ninth. Washington's outfielder Sam Rice's streak of nine consecutive hits is stopped.

1986 Joe Cowley's final win in the majors is a no-hitter as the White Sox beat the Angels, 7-1. The Henryville, Tennessee native will finish his career with the Phillies the following year with 0-4 record.


2000 A Dodger fan, in addition to other court ordered decisions, has been banned from attending home games for 18 months because he threw coffee in the face of a Met fan cheering a grand slam hit by catcher Todd Pratt.

Who drinks coffee at a baseball game?

Well, it's Friday night all over the world (except in my heart.) I gotta run. More views through my astigmatic eye will be added here later this weekend.
