Jim Thorpe, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson discussed on Mark Blazor



What's going on, fellas, Sports fans and sandy West and I'm here to take you on a journey back to this week in sports history. Start out in 1912 for Jim Thorpe wins the decathlon at the Stockholm Olympics and in the closing ceremony, Sweden's King Gustav proclaimed Storm the world's greatest athlete label this week in 1934. Babe Ruth hits his 7/100 home run in a 42 victory over Tommy Bridges and the Detroit Tigers jumping ahead this week in 1960. Baltimore's Brooks Robinson has a five for five performance at the plate, driving in three runs and hitting for the cycle as the Orioles beat the Chicago The White Sox five to this week in 1973 Nolan Ryan of the California Angels struck out 17 batters and threw his second no hitter of the year, beating Detroit six to nothing this week in 1985. NBC is the first TV network to Arab program in stereo Major League Baseball's All Star Game. The National League beats the American League 6 to 1 at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Later this week in 1990, Minnesota, became the first team in major league history to pull off to triple play. Days and one game, but it wasn't enough to overcome Boston as the Red Sox beat the Twins want to nothing. And this week in 2016 Henrik Stenson shoots an eight under 63 to beat Phil Mickelson by three strokes, becoming the first man from Sweden to win the British Open. And that's just some of what happened this week in sports history. The weekend sports Time capsule on I Heart radio. I heart radio Earth this.
