Today in Baseball History:

  • 1987 — A’s first baseman Mark McGwire becomes the first rookie to hit 30 homers before the All-Star Game as Oakland defeats the Red Sox, 6 - 2.
  • 1993 — Oakland OF Rickey Henderson leads off both games of the A’s doubleheader against the Indians with home runs. It is the first time this has happened since 1913, when Harry Hooper performed the feat for the Boston Red Sox. The Athletics win the 1st game, 6 - 5, but the Indians come back to take the nightcap, 6 - 2.
