Game 1, 2007 World Series: Rockies @ Red Sox - NESN, 8 p.m.
STIDHAM VS ALLEN FOR THE MONEY
Shout out and salute to the Washington Nationals, already defending World Series champions, for reversing the current trend and agreeing to pay their minor league baseball players' salaries. It's a great move by a great organization, and a great look at a time baseball has been under fire for dragging their feet in return. Also, props to David Price and Shin-Shoo Choo for paying their respective teams salaries for a month. As far as leadership and generosity go that's going deep.
Did you know that ninety-five years ago today the immortal Lou Gehrig began his 2,130 consecutive games streak. Then ten years later the one and only Bambino, George Hermann "Babe" Ruth, retired from the game he owned. Then seven years after that, arguably the best pure hitter the game has ever seen, Ted Williams, enlisted as a Naval aviator. Helluva day in history for fans of America's pastime.
