Joe McClain celebrated a birthday on this date.
Events that happened in baseball on this date. The page was designed to be like a newspaper sports page with baseball-only. All of the basbeall events for this date have been consolidated into this page. Though historically relevant, it is also a great place to review the prior day's events.

The page is pre-built for each day so loading time should be minimal. However, its important to note that this means that the data on these pages may be out of sync with the rest of the site. We will re-build all pages periodically.
