So on this day in 1989, Nolan Ryan in his first year as a Texas Ranger strikes out Ricky Henderson to get the legendary 5,000 strikeout. I mention this because I was at that game. Sitting somewhere on the second deck of that old, crappy Arlington Stadium with my parents, but it didn’t matter- we were witnessing history. I will never forget it.
EDIT: for some reason this never published.
