This Day in A's History, May 9

Just wanted to highlight the first in the series...BBG

I don't know if I can pull these off on a daily basis, but I sure will try.

The history of the A's franchise dates back to 1901, when they were based in Philadelphia. After a 13-year stint in Kansas City, they landed in Oakland in 1968, and have been here ever since (no matter how many times they have tried to leave.)

It is the perfect day to start this fun exercise. Pun intended. Because on this date in 2010, Dallas Braden was indeed perfect, retiring 27 Tampa Bay Rays in succession on a Mother's Day afternoon in Oakland.

Would love to hear your memories of Mr. 209's day in the sun.

Braden 2010

Also, Happy Birthday wishes to Aaron Harang.
