Baseball came of age in the 1920s, when Babe Ruth (1895-1948) led the New York Yankees to several World Series titles and became a national hero on the strength of his home runs (balls that cannot be played because they have been hit out of the field).
The division between the two camps -- rock enthusiasts and folk purists -- came to a head when Dylan was booed for "going electric" (accompanying himself on electric guitar) at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
Naismith's legacy included the first great college basketball coach, Forrest "Phog" Allen (1885-1974), who played for Naismith at the University of Kansas and went on to win 771 games as a coach at Kansas himself.

People describe the 1974 Dutch as something like the 1998 New York Yankees in their toughness (though the '54 Hungarians are often claimed to top the list), and it's a shame that the Dutch haven't won a WC that they really deserve.
That goal, which qualified Barça for the Champions League qualifying for the next season was worth US$8 million for the team.
And an event that would be on my list if I had been alive at the time (I'll cheat and put it on my Dad's list): Britain's Roger Bannister winning the mile at the Empire Games in Vancouver, 7 August 1954, in 3 minutes 58.8 seconds with Australia's John Landy at 3 min 59.6 sec.

A week later the owner of the Giants also gained controlling interest of the Orioles and raided the team for players, after which the league declared the team forfeit and took control, still intending to move the franchise to New York when and if possible.
The intention of Johnson and the American League had been to place a team in New York City, but their efforts had been stymied by the political connections that owners of the National League New York Giants had with Tammany Hall.

After Messersmith signed a three-year, $1 million contract with the Atlanta Braves, many players purposely left their 1976 contracts unsigned.
