Anything Goes

This day in history:
The first National Women's Rights Convention began in 1850. A hostage crisis in a Moscow theater happened in 2002, as 50 Chechen rebels stormed it.

This day in baseball:

1993 - In one of the most dramatic endings in World Series history, Joe Carter hits a three-run, 9th-inning home run off Mitch Williams for an 8 - 6 win and Toronto’s second straight World Championship.

Marie Curie received her first Nobel Prize in 1903.

She shared that year’s Nobel Prize in Physics with her husband Pierre, and fellow scientist Henri Becquerel. Originally, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the prize to Pierre and Henri, but Pierre refused the award unless they awarded it to his wife as well. This led to Marie becoming the first woman to ever receive a Nobel Prize.

Toni Stone (1921–1996) became the first woman to play in baseball’s Negro League.

There were only three women over the 40-year history of the organization. Moreover, baseball historians dub her the “female Jackie Robinson.” In 1953, Stone even became the fourth-best batter in the league.
