How did your team do on your Birthday?
I utilize Baseball-Reference.com quite a bit, especially in my Cooperstown Chronicles series. While clicking around on the site I noticed a page for Box Scores. You could basically look up any box score going back to 1956. My favorite team is the Boston Red Sox. I wanted to see how they did on the day I was born. Wouldn’t you know it, they beat Detroit 7-5 (box score).
OK, now that I’ve shared my results, I’m asking you to check out to see how your favorite team did on your birthday. If your favorite team didn’t play on your birthday, perhaps you wedding anniversary (the Sox lost on mine). You can also check our box scores for the NFL to see if your team played on your birthday.
