There have been some momentous happenings on July 9th in baseball history. Satchel Paige made his sorely delayed debut in Major League Baseball in 1948, as an example.
There was also a less-than-glorious moment for HONKBAL’s own Randall Simon as his Pittsburgh Pirates were preparing to bat one inning at Miller Park in 2003.
My buddy Chris Jaffe has a feature on the event that spawned a catchphrase and launched a t-shirt (updated with commemorative anniversary logo!)

You can buy the updated t-shirt pictured above from the gang at Brew City here.
