This Day in Sports History: June 29

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, June 29 is one in which two no-hitters were thrown on the same day and a player's one inning in the Majors was immortalized in pop culture.

Oakland A's: 2017 Preview, Predictions & Schedule

Examining the team's MLB season ahead.

Oakland A's LogoThe A’s are making no promises about contending in 2017. It would be a stretch to suggest this team could keep up with the Rangers or Astros. The A’s finished last in consecutive seasons and seem to have 2019 in their sights more than 2017. Maybe some of their young players will be reaching stardom by then. Maybe their hopes for a new ballpark will be more than a dream by then.

Major League Baseball is promoting an effort to identify the best four players in each team’s history with their "Franchise Four." We selected our choices for Mt. Rushmores a few years ago. Here are updated versions for all 30 teams. Who are the four baseball players that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple, right? Not so fast. Let the arguments begin.

Oakland A's 2014 Preview

Green and Gold going for three-peat in AL West
The A’s finished 5.5 games ahead of the Rangers, who added Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo. Oakland’s most expensive acquisition was Scott Kazmir at $22 million, but the A’s never try to keep up with their free-spending division foes. They simply try to outplay them, which they have designs on doing for a third straight year.
