Happy Boner Day!

No, really:
This date in baseball – September 23

Sept. 23

1908: In a crucial game with the Chicago Cubs, Fred Merkle of the New York Giants failed to touch second base as the apparent winning run crossed home plate. This resulted in a great dispute, and the game was eventually declared a tie and played over on Oct. 8 when the Cubs and Giants ended the season in a tie.

Ironic that 100 yrs later the Cubs are playing in NY against a team that called the Polo Grounds home.
