It's Friday! Today is May 6, the 96th anniversary of Babe Ruth's first major league home run, as well as the 13th anniversary of Kerry Wood's 20 strikeout game. Wood posted a .673 WPA as a pitcher in that game. Also, 74 years ago today the Hindenburg caught fire, killing 36 people in approximately that many seconds. So...enjoy your day!
