Hello Twins Fans! The Twins play early today. Tune in to KFIL at 11:30 as they meet St. Louis.
Today in 1975, Fred Lynn of the Boston Sox drove in ten runs - three home runs, a triple and a single. His sixteen bases tied an American League record.
In 1977, Yankees Reggie Jackson took his time fielding a fly ball during a 10-4 loss to Boston. Jackson was taken out of the game by manager, Billy Martin. In front of national television cameras, the two nearly come to blows in the dugout.
And in 1995, Sparky Anderson, manager of the Tigers, recorded his 2,158 win, moving into third place on the all-time win list.
