Hammerin’ Hank Aaron’s record of 755 home runs was tied by Barry “Mr. Steroids” Bonds.
From the Washington Post:
For 86 years of baseball history, until Bonds connected against Hensley at 7:29 p.m. PDT, only two men had held the sport’s most cherished record: Babe Ruth, from 1921 until 1974, and Hank Aaron, from 1974 until now. But there is now a tie atop this hallowed list, and any day now, for better or worse, the record will be Bonds’s alone.

The Philadelphia Phillies made history by losing its 10.000th game Sunday night. Now, I haven’t followed baseball for a while, but, if I remember correctly, 10,000 losses is not a good thing.
The St. Louis Cardinals handed the Phillies the loss (which might be a good thing, because I hear that this past week was not a very good one for cardinals!).
The franchise began in 1883 as the Philadelphia Quakers. All of the players left to make oatmeal, and the team changed the name to the Phillies in 1890.
They became the Blue Jays in 1943, but all of those guys must have moved to Toronto, so they changed the name back to the Phillies in 1945. (note: All of these facts may not be accurate, because I made them up except for the dates and the names.)
