Hey Twins Fans! Listen to KFIL tonight at 6:30 as they take on Milwaukee. Our own, Devon Krueger, and his buddies will be in Milwaukee for the action.
Speaking of the Twins, in 1994, Kirby Puckett gets his 2,088 hit as a Twin, becoming Minnesota's all-time hits leader.
In 1940, fifty-thousand fans filled the Polo Grounds. The Yankees, Dodgers and Giants played each other in a six-inning game to raise money for war bonds. Final score Dodgers 5, Yankees 1, Giants 0.
And in 1916, in a game against the White Sox, Cleveland players wore numbers on their uniform sleeves. This is the first time players wore numbers corresponding to the numbers on the scorecard.
