Today we shared some significant September 30th moments in Major League Baseball:
1947: The World Series begins. The first to be televised, the first to feature an African-American player (Jackie Robinson) and the first to feature a pinch-hit home run.
1972: Roberto Clemente gets his 3,000th career hit against the Mets. It would be his last, as the Pirates’ future Hall of Famer dies in a plane crash on New Year’s Eve while flying relief supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.
1995: The Indians’ Albert Belle becomes the first MLB player to hit 50 home runs and 50 doubles in the same season. He does this in a 143-game shortened season. (This was also our trivia question to win the $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup).
We also shared a bit of what you can expect tomorrow as we celebrate WNZR’s 34th anniversary…click here to be a part of the celebration!
