I can't believe that it only took me 23 years to be part of MLB history. Well, kind of...not so much directly a part of it. More indirectly...very indirectly.
Well, what's important here is that my cousin's good friend (stood up in his wedding type of friend) was the pitcher that threw the ball that was called a strike that drew Bobby Cox's ire, which led to Cox's record-setting ejection.
That's right, Jack Taschner, Racine native and friend of my family, set off Cox's historical tirade. It might as well have been me who personally gave Cox the thumb.
Man, I'm awesome.
