Today is the birthdate of Al Bumbry, Jesse Orosco, Ryan 'Don't Call Me Bryan' Adams, and Ronny 'Dillweed' Paulino. On this date in 1957 the O's and Senators game becomes the first to ever be postponed as a result of a power outage. Washington teams ruin everything. In 1994, while with Cleveland, Eddie Murray hits a HR from each side of the plate for the 11th time, passing Mickey Mantle's previous record. In 1996, Brady Anderson hits a dinger in his 4th consecutive game.
