    Phillies on the 4th game of a 5 game losing streak fall on the road to those Atlanta Braves 7-5 (Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium)
    Starters: Chris Short vs Tony Cloninger
    Phillies (35-31) in Fifth place 5 games out of 1st.

    The Phillies would finish 1966 in 4th place

    Why does this not surprise me?

    1952 World Series Ticket Dodgers @ Yankees

    Notable Brooklyn Dodgers player stats included:
    OBP - Jackie Robinson .440
    Stolen Bases - Pee Wee Reese 30

    Notable Brooklyn Dodgers team stats included:
    Base on Balls 663
    HR 153
    OBP .348
    Runs 775
    Slugging .399
    Stolen Bases 90
    Strikeouts 773

    On my birthdate - 12th August
    The Brooklyn Dodgers had a travel day. The previous day they had disposed of The Phillies 9-5 at Philadelphia and the next day they took care of the Giants, 5-4 in Brooklyn. And, as I was born at 8:40pm Eastern Australian time, the clock had already ticked over to 12th August in New York, so we cannot use the time difference to change the circumstances.

    I think that is enough info - and I have enjoyed researching same. Thank you Baseball Almanac!!
    The Phillies lost a ball game?

It was probably not the turning point of WWII, but it severely crippled Hitler, and it could not have happened to a nicer guy. I began reading about it as soon as I emerged from the womb.
    Yup, you can actually buy a bombed out city and try to put it back together again.

    Looks like LA after the Watt's riots.

    When I was a kid I grew up within a bike ride's distance from Anaheim Stadium. I was an Angel fan growing up and still am today. Made it even more memorable when I ran on the field as a part of the team.

    My B-day is in January of 77

    On January 28 of 1982, the Angels made one of their not better trades, giving Jeff Schneider AND Doug Decinces and getting Dan Ford. In January of 1977,
    On the 2nd, Kuhn suspended Ted Turner for a year for tampering
    On the 4th, Mary Shane was the first female TV play-by-play announcer (for ChiSox)
    On the 31st, Joe Sewell, Amos Rusie & Al Lopez were elected to the Hall

    And they did it with a huge contribution from this fellow. Warneke finished with a league leading 22 wins, 2.37 era and tied Dizzy Dean and Steve Swetonic with four shutouts.

    Since you are an ump, two days before you were born, the umps threw out Goose Goslin's striped bat, and it was upheld the next day
