A better July 4th
MLB.com has a look back at Dave Righetti’s no-hitter, 25 years ago to the date against the Red Sox. Who can forget Wade Boggs swinging for the 27th out? The ultimate Rags to riches story.
Watching this video clip really brought me back. When I was growing up, the local public library had a VHS tape about the 10 greatest Yankees moments — I think it was sponsored by Kodak. I must have taken that thing out a hundred times as I tried to get my hands on anything baseball-related.
I do remember at some point, I just decided not to return it and paid the penalty… I think we did the same thing with Bull Durham and some baseball card collecting video hosted by Rangers manager Bobby Valentine. So to the Sloatsburg Public Library, thank you.
