Weekend OT Thread

A little 80s On This Day in Baseball kind of stuff.

1982 The Yankees trade 1978 play-off hero Bucky Dent to the Rangers for outfielder/first baseman Lee Mazzilli. In spite of hitting just .169, the popular Yankee infielder nearly was elected to the All-Star game by the fans.
1983 Eric Rasmussen throws a 4-0 shutout against the Red Sox in his first American League outing. The Royals starter, who also blanked the Padres as a Cardinal in his first-ever major league game in 1975 becomes the first pitcher to toss a shutout in both his National League and American League debuts.
1985 As announced three weeks ago, the Players’ Association keep their word and go on strike. The second mid-season work stoppage in baseball history will last only two days.
1986 In the game that establishes a new record for bases-full homers in one game Texas beats Baltimore, 13-11. Rangers' infielder Toby Harrah hits a second inning grand slam and Larry Sheets and Jim Dwyer both go deep for grand slams in the Orioles' nine-run fourth.
