Today in baseball history

Between the stock market disintegrating today, Super Bowl stuff and very little actual baseball stuff to discuss, I came across this tidbit on Baseball-Reference's TIBH section:

1997 - All-Star first baseman Don Mattingly officially announces his retirement at a media conference in Yankee Stadium.

And then this:

2003 - Former Minnesota Twins backup David Ortiz is signed by the Boston Red Sox, where he will start a successful and productive career over the years for coming.

As if the market being down 300+ points wasn't depressing enough...

I'm flooded with work today so I will try to find some time to break away and post something else later today. Pitchers and catchers report in HOW LONG? (Feb. 14th, for those keeping track)

Thanks for dropping by.
