50th Anniversary Feb. 25, 1964
Clay beats Sonny Liston
1.) Tuesday was the 50th Anniversary of the Cassius Clay – Sonny Liston fight – Ali Won in an upset and really changed the sport – Liston could not answer the bell for the start of the 7th round. First time Ali said, “Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.” Clay was 22. Though I don’t remember this fight I remember most of his other fights and his weigh ins were at times just as entertaining. But he did a lot for the sport.
2.) Manager-Buck Showalter makes a minor leaguer write a report on Frank Robinson. When Mr. Robinson came to address the team at which included minor league players a 19 year old said, “I know he is famous what did he do?” Showalter’s basically said write a one page report. The young player didn’t know all of his achievement’s that Frank Robinson made which were, 4 World Series appearances, MVP award in both American & National League Triple Crown winner First African American Baseball Manager. Are just to name a few.
