09/15/2004: Significant days in baseball history:
Today is the 41st anniversary of the time that the San Francisco Giants fielded the first all-sibling outfield in MLB history, as Matty Alou entered the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates as a defensive substitution for Willie Mays in left field, while his brother Felipe played center field, and his brother Jesus (in his rookie season) played in right field.
UPDATE: How the fsck did I forget to add the Best Alou Joke Of All Time to this post?
Anyway, here it is:
