RT @baseballhall: The first use of the term “perfect game” occurred on Jan. 10, 1909, but it did not refer to the first such game to have been pitched in the bigs. That honor falls to Lee Richmond, who later hung up his cleats to work as a practicing physician and teacher. https://t.co/kVGXYTkqoN https://t.co/JQP3hAbmu2

RT @baseballhall: En-route to becoming the all-time leader in stolen bases, Rickey Henderson first joined an exclusive club 20 years ago today, when he became the 2nd player to steal bases in 4 decades. At the time, only fellow #HOFer Ted Williams had accomplished the feat https://t.co/p1AiQI7p9G https://t.co/bc2jZ9I9k0
