OTD in Baseball History: Bo Jackson hits his first MLB HR


Hey everyone nice enough to read my blog! 🙂

I know I’ve been missing in action the past week or so! I just wanted to let you know that I had some home/family stuff that needed to be dealt with but that I am definitely back with some OTD in Baseball History (see below!) for ya! 

But just so you know, you can expect my regular daily posts from FRSN’s Today’s Knuckleball, beginning with a new piece on A’s rookie Jharel Cottonas well as pieces written exclusively for this blog on a daily basis once again so you can keep coming back to BBST for more commentary, news and most importantly analysis on America’s pastime – the best game in the world (at least to me and the the great Babe Ruth!), the AL West and the Oakland Athletics!

So, here’s a little fun fact for you! On this day in baseball history: September 14, 1986 – the greatest (at least in my opinion) two-sport player ever, Mr. Bo Jackson, then a member of the Kansas City Royals, hit his first MLB home run. It traveled an astonishing 475 feet!

Thanks for reading and sorry for my recent extended absence! I hope you will keep coming back and reading my stuff on Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk! (I also promise a bit more actual “Sock Talk” for all you fellow socks lovers out there – and based on my Instagram – there are more than a few of you! LOL! Love you all!), have a great day/evening and please keep  coming back because I’ll still be here writing away! 🙂
