Have you ever seen an inning end like this?

The throw looks like a groundball to SS. I wonder how that was scored? 2-6-2? I think I would write E2-6-2 if I was keeping a scorebook.

This day in history:
In 1919 Congress passed the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Wyoming was the first to give women the right to vote in 1890. Operation Dynamo (retreat from Dunkirk) ended in 1940, as the remnants of the British and Allied forces limped their way back to Britain. The Battle of Midway started in 1942.

This day in baseball:

A house fire inspired The Sims.

Will Wight was inspired to create The Sims after suffering a house fire in 1991, where he lost everything. When he had a vision of rebuilding his house, he thought of a game concept where one could create a “virtual dollhouse.”

Handshakes were originally a safety measure.

I have also heard that its to ensure your sword hand is visible (not reaching for your weapon) in the days of mounted Knights and others that carried swords. It was my Grandfather that told me that, so take it as you will.

In 5th century Greece, handshakes were done to make sure that the other person wasn’t carrying a hidden weapon. The hand clasp proved that your hand was empty and shaking it was meant to “shake out” weapons hiding in the sleeve.
