Today in Baseball History:

  • 1972 - The Texas Rangers, formerly the Washington Senators, trade former two-time Cy Young Award winner Denny McLain to the Oakland Athletics for two minor league pitchers. McLain, who lost a league-leading 22 games pitching for the Senators in 1971, will last only five starts in Oakland before being traded to the Atlanta Braves for Orlando Cepeda.
  • 1994 - Michael Jordan comes to bat for the first time in a Chicago White Sox uniform. Playing in a spring training game, Jordan taps back to Texas Rangers pitcher Darren Oliver, who tags out the former National Basketball Association star. Jordan will eventually give up baseball after one season in the minor leagues and return to the NBA.

  • Bryce Harper did an oops...
  • There is nothing this man can’t do...
  • I hope Tanner Anderson carves out a successful career with Oakland just so we can watch his delivery on a regular basis...
