If Disney World is the happiest place on earth, then the Trop must be the unhappiest place. Oh, sure...the tens of people that patronize it can ring their cowbells (and...what else do they do?) and they seem to have a jolly old time, but it is the Pepsi Clear to Oriole Park's Coca Cola Classic...or something.

Cal Ripken became the first shortstop to homer 30 times and hit 40 doubles in major league history on this day in 1991. Taylor Teagarden etched his name into the annals of O's history with a go ahead pinch hit  single in the 18th inning against the Mariners on this day in the magical year of 2012.
