On this date in baseball history (or "how to finish a triple")...

From Today in Baseball History 1963 Reds' second baseman Pete Rose triples off Pirates' pitcher Bob Friend to collect his first major league hit. The future all-time hit leader had gone hitless in his first 11 major league at bats. The REAL question, of course, is whether he slid head-first into 3rd base!And nota bene: in all his head-first slides (and other base running collisions), he never broke his arm like that dope Josh Hamilton did last night.
