Mune high fives Current Highwire Act Casey Janssen - Hannah Foslien

A byproduct of a full day of work and a full stomach, passing out face down on a laptop keyboard on the couch is not the most comfortable position to sleep. Fortunately, my keyboard is also drool proof. For your amusement, a links post that is rather light on Jays links.

Baseball History September 7th - National Pastime - Baseball History
1968 (In a moment that would make Hank "Human Fungo" Aaron XXIV proud) Heading toward home plate with the winning run in the bottom of the ninth, Hank Aaron falls down and is tagged out by Houston's third baseman Doug Rader. The last-place Astros come back for an improbable 6-3 victory over the Braves when they score three runs in the top of the tenth frame.

1994 In the second game of a doubleheader at Cincinnati, Cardinal outfielder Mark Whiten hits four home runs in one game helping to tie two established RBI records. With 12 RBIs in second game he equals the single game mark set by Jim Bottomley in 1924, and his opening game ribbie ties a 21-year old record established by Nate Colbert for the most RBIs (13) in a twin bill.
