This Date in Baseball History: August 4

by Ben Cook on August 4, 2009

Those of you who have been reading this blog for quite a while may remember the This Date in Baseball History series we used to do.  Well, we’re happy to announce that we’re bringing it back from the dead. As the title suggests, everyday we will post something remarkable that has happened on this date in baseball’s long and storied history.


“In the second inning at Petco Park in front sellout crowd of 42,497 fans, Barry Bonds drives a Clay Hensley fastball over the left-field wall for his 755th home run tying Hank Aaron’s 33-year-old career home run record. The opposite-field drive [came] ironically off a pitcher who failed a steroid test as a minor leaguer in 2005.” – source National Pastime
