THIS DAY IN RED WINGS HISTORY
1984- Red Wing manager Tom Verdi reversed the team's line up from top to bottom and the Wings responded with an 8-1 victory over the Pawtucket Red Sox. The effort was led by a lead off by (formerly no. 9) hitter Bob Bonner, who went 4-4.
THIS DAY IN INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE HISTORY
2005 - One of the most prolific base stealers in IL history is on top of his game when the Richmond Braves visit Columbus on June 29. Esix Snead goes 4-5 and steals four bases, sparking the Braves to a 5-4 victory at Cooper Stadium. Clippers' backstop Wil Nieves is no match for Snead's speed on this night, as the Richmond center fielder swipes second base once and third base three times. Snead would finish his third season in the International League with 46 steals and his third consecutive stolen base title. Snead also swiped 61 bases in 2003 and 40 bases in 2004, both as a member of the Norfolk Tides.
