I’ve decided to create this thread “On This Day In Sports History!” At least once a week I’ll try to update it with facts about historical events that happened on that day in the sports world. There is no specific sport for this thread so every sport can be included also feel free to post any historical sports event I may have missed. With that being said and research being done let’s look at what happened on this day in sports history!
1936: 1st players elected to Baseball Hall of Fame: Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson & Walter Johnson.
