Timing Trivia

In 1963, baseball pitcher Gaylord Perry said: "They’ll put a man on the moon before I hit a home run." Only a few hours after Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969, Perry hit the first and only home run of his career.

A little Gaylord Perry side note - I was at the game in The Kingdome in Seattle where he won his 300th game. One of the best pitchers of all time.

Thanks for that, Al!
