1941: DiMaggio passes 41 and 42 on the way to 56

leave a comment »


Records will be broken but not Joe DiMaggio’s 56 game hitting streak.

On this day in 1941, DiMaggio got 41 and 42:

“In a doubleheader with the Senators, Joe DiMaggio ties and then breaks the American League consecutive game hitting streak of 41 established by George Sisler.

In the opener he knots the record with a double off Dutch Leonard, and in the nightcap ‘the Yankee Clipper’ tops the record with a seventh inning single against Walt Masterson.”

The streak ended in Cleveland at 56.  

By the way, it is impressive that DiMaggio played both games of the doubleheader.  I’m sure that the Yankees would have understood if he had asked for a game off to relax from all of the pressure that he was under.    It shows how much respect DiMaggio had for the fans who paid to see him play.

June 29, 1990: Stewart & Valenzuela throw no-hitters

leave a comment »


It was a rather remarkable Friday night, specially for those of us watching on ESPN:

“Oakland’s Dave Stewart and the Dodgers Fernando Valenzuela both throw no-hitters.

Stewart blanks the Blue Jays 5-0, and a few hours later Valenzuela beats the Cardinals 6-0.”

Great baseball night for two of the best pitchers of their time.

And now the fun begins with ObamaCare

leave a comment »

(My new American Thinker post)

Chief Justice Robert’s opinion on the “subsidies” was hard to understand. However, the Court’s decision will keep ObamaCare alive for now and that’s good news for those of us who want to kill this terrible law.

According to Robert E Moffit, it will be very interesting:

Roughly 6.4 million persons in thirty-four states could have been negatively affected if the Court struck down the federal exchange subsidies.
But there is a much wider universe of persons adversely affected by the law: the roughly 15 million persons in the individual and small group market who don’t get — and won’t get — the federal government’s health-insurance subsidies.
Under Obamacare, millions of Americans are forced to pay more for their government standardized coverage, regardless of whether they like it or not, whether they want it or not, or whether or not it forces them to pay for medical procedures that violate their ethical, moral or religious convictions. 

A couple of days ago, I spoke with a family member who was complaining about their new premium, almost $1,500 a month for a couple whose kids are no longer living at home and working.   

At church, another person told me another nightmare story about premiums.  

The Obama team claims that the AHCA debate is over, specially after the most recent victory in the Supreme Court.  

In fact, the real debate is just beginning as the chickens come home to roost. We are going to get a taste of just how bad this law is this.  

If Bernie Sander is the nominee, he will say that we should have gone for a single-payer plan instead.

If Hillary Clinton is the nominee, she will call for major changes, including the elimination of mandates.

If the GOP wins, I hope that they repeal it!

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
