Today is Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Today in Sports History 1839 - Abner Doubleday created the game of baseball, according to the legend. However, evidence has surfaced that indicates that the game of baseball was played before 1800. 1939 - The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was dedicated in Cooperstown, New York. 1948 - Ben Hogan won his first U.S. Open golf classic. 1967 - The Senators beat Chicago, 6-5, in 22 innings. The game lasted six hours, 38 minutes and ended at 2:43 a.m. and caused the league to adopt a curfew stating that no inning may start after 1:00 a.m. 1981 - Major league baseball players began a 49 day strike. The issue was free-agent compensation. 1985 - Wayne "The Great One" Gretzky was named winner of the NHL's Hart Trophy. The award is given to the league Most Valuable Player. 1991 - The Chicago Bulls won their first NBA championship. The Bulls beat the Los Angeles Lakers four games to one. 1994 - Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were murdered outside her home in Los Angeles. O.J. Simpson was later acquitted of the killings, but he was held liable in a civil suit. 1997 - Interleague play began in baseball, ending a 126-year tradition of separating the major leagues until the World Series. 2000 - Steve Young (San Francisco 49ers) retired from the NFL.

One thing I've noticed when posting a blog using Chrome is no matter how well it's spaced or the care in which you take, Chrome posts it in one solid block. Then there's Firefox. Space it the way you want it but don't try to copy/paste something because Firefox doesn't support it in an FN blog. Not sure what happens with Internet Explorer.

Anyway, I'd be interested in seeing the evidence that baseball was played before 1800.

Hubby still gets the local newspaper everyday (as opposed to getting the news from TV or the internet) and one of the first things I look at is Today In History. Wish I was as interested in history when I was still going to school. LOL.
