RICHMOND BOYS BASKETBALL AT CONNERSVILLE
CLICK ON THE ICON TO WATCH THE BROADCAST:
1946: The Chicago Bears won their fifth N.F.L. title by beating the Giants, 24-14, at the Polo Grounds as a scandal spread behind the scenes. Phone taps showed that a gambler had tried to bribe Giants fullback Merle Hapes to fix the game; Hapes rejected the offer but did mention the contact to his teammate Frank Filchock, who threw two touchdown passes before the Bears pulled away. Both players were banned for life for not informing team officials, though Filchock¹s suspension was later lifted.
1981: Ending a strike that had wiped out seven weeks of the schedule, baseball owners and players divided the campaign into a split-season format, with the first-half winners (Yankees, A’s, Phillies and Dodgers) facing those from the second half in an extra round of divisional playoffs. The arrangement was somehow unjust: the Cincinnati Reds had the best overall record, 66-42, but never made the playoffs.
