This Day in Sports History: July 30

The history of sports is both vast and rich, thanks to the existence of so many different ones and the longevity associated with them. With so much history to cull through, Athlon Sports wanted to offer the opportunity to look back and see what memorable things happened or milestones were reached on a specific date.

 

With that in mind, July 30 is a day in which soccer's greatest event crowned its first champion and "His Airness" hit his first professional home run.
