Monday 30 Pleasant + a holiday. Went to ride but did not enjoy it. We went to the Beaches but the route we took was very unpleasant + when we finally parked at one beach it was very windy + cold. Audrea took cold but she brought home some starfish – which all had to be thrown out as she did not “compose their limbs” properly before “rigour mortiss” set in.
On this day in history: May 30, 1927 (Monday)
- Jimmy Cooney of the Chicago Cubs made an unassisted triple play in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The very next day, Johnny Neun of theDetroit Tigers duplicated the feat. Only five players had accomplished the feat before Cooney and Neun; it didn’t happen again until July 30, 1968. Cooney himself had been tagged out in the last on on May 7, 1925.
- George Souders, a 24-year-old driving his first major auto race ever, won the 15th annual Indianapolis 500
