2014 MLB Anniversaries
Of course the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field is top on the minds of MLB this season but there are a few other interesting (and ignominious) anniversaries this season:
1919 - Chicago White Sox throw the ‘19 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds
1924 - Washington, D.C. wins it’s one, and so far, only World Series
1934 - The Cardinals’ Gas House Gang beats the Tigers in the World Series
1939 - On July 4, the Yankees will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s “Luckiest Man” speech
1954 - Willie Mays’ catch
1969 - 45th anniversary of the Miracle Mets
1974 - Hank Aaron passes Babe Ruth on April 8
1979 - Thurman Munson dies in a airplane crash on August 3
1984 - The Tigers win the World Series after leading the AL from wire-to-wire
1989 - An earthquake interrupts game 3 of the BART series (Giants vs. A’s)
1994 - Baseball players’ strike ends the season early and cancels the World Series for the first time since 1905
1999 - This awesome All-Star Game moment (Jump to 36:10)
2004 - Red Sox win their first World Series since 1918
Not a complete list but we’re OK with that.
