Moonlight Graham Day

If you didn't know already, today is Moonlight Graham day, the 100th anniversary of Moonlight Graham's single game appearance for John McGraw's New York Giants.

Made famous by the movie Field of Dreams, we all should remember these words, which teach us to enjoy every great day as if it were our last great day:
It was like having come this close to your dreams... and then watch them brush past you like a stranger in the crowd. At the time you don't think much of it. You know we just don't recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they happen. Back then I thought, well, there'll be other days. I didn't realize that was the only day.

On Sportcenter, they actually did a little profile of Ryan Short in honor of Moonlight Graham Day. It was sweet. Apparently, Short is the only guy in MLB history to get an RBI in his only AB.

Looks like injuries are going to give Short another chance.

I'm glad Rick Short is going to get a few more shots, though not happy with the reasons for it, i.e., injuries. I don't know who that Ryan Short character I was writing about is.
