May 24 in sports history: The great American caution flag

  May 24 in sports history: The great American caution flag On this day in 1981, controversy surrounded Bobby Unser's victory at the Indianapolis 500. Eleven years later on this date, Unseer's nephew Al Jr. would win the Indy 500 by the smallest margin in the race's history.1981: If American racing legend Mario Andretti didn’t have bad luck at the Indianapolis 500, he may have not had any at all. And though he won The Great American Race in 1969, he would come agonizingly close to victory too many times to count. The 1981 race was especially bizarre, as he would win and lose it without being the first racer to cross the finish line.

John Davison Rockefeller Sr. (July 8, 1839 – May 23 , 1937) was an American business magnate and philanthropist. He is widely considered the wealthiest American of all time

Here's a look back at notable sports news on May 23 through the years:

1948: The first number that comes to mind regarding Joe DiMaggio is 56, as in his MLB-record 56-game hitting streak. But No. 3 kept popping up during Joltin' Joe's Hall of Fame career. 

On this day 72 years ago, DiMaggio hit three consecutive home runs — the first two off fellow Hall of Famer Bob Feller — to lead the Yankees to a 6-5 win over Cleveland in the opener of a doubleheader.

"I hit three once before," DiMaggio said. "It was so long ago, I don't remember the other team. I know it wasn't Cleveland though."

Feller , incidentally, was somewhat notorious for being an autograph mercenary in his later years. He’ d show up anywhere, anytime, for an Scott Marcusky took that photo at O’s camp yesterday. ”¦ Here’s an interesting story that raises questions about the practice of shipping phantom-championship

Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden came off panicked in an interview that was supposed to put the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations to rest, raising questions about what incriminating evidence is in his archives.

DiMaggio was right. His first three-homer game was in St. Louis on June 13, 1937 — the nightcap of a doubleheader that was ruled an 8-8 tie after 11 innings. But since good things seemed to come in threes for DiMaggio, he added another game with three blasts on Sept. 10, 1950, when the Yanks stomped the Senators, 8-1.

Joltin' Joe's second home run against Feller, by the way, apparently was a 465-foot blast.

"That would be the longest ball I've ever hit in the majors," said DiMaggio, who went 4-for-4 with six RBI and three runs scored. "I had one over 475 (feet) in an exhibition game, but that wasn't against Feller."

Apparently, DiMaggio's success against Feller was no fluke. His .342 career average against him ranked third against pitchers he faced at least 100 times, according to cleveland.com.

A number of beautiful historic cities and Brussels itself offer impressive architecture, lively nightlife, first-rate restaurants and numerous other attractions for visitors.

DiMaggio would hit 361 home runs in his 13-year career with the Yankees but lost three seasons while serving in the military during World War II. However, before he retired in 1951, he won the AL MVP — you guessed it — three times.

1962: Joe Pepitone hit two home runs in the nine-run eighth inning of the Yankees' 13-7 victory over the Kansas City A's.

Pepitone became the second Yankee to achieve the feat, following DiMaggio, who hit two blasts in the fifth inning of an 18-11 win over the White Sox in 1936. Alex Rodriguez — who turned the trick twice — and Cliff Johnson are the other Yankees who have gone yard twice in the same frame.

Not only do Pepitone and DiMaggio have this date and playing for the Yankees in common, but they also are two of the 56 MLB players who have hit two home runs in an inning.

2002: Shawn Green had a great week at the plate all in one day.

The Dodgers slugger became the 14th player in MLB history to homer four times in a game and set a big-league record with 19 total bases in L.A.'s 16-3 victory in Milwaukee.

Green went 6-for-6 — adding a double and a single — with seven RBI, and he scored six runs. He's the only player in MLB history to have a 6-for-6 day that included four home runs.

"That day, and that week, I had a very calm sense of being in the zone," Green told mlb.com's Ken Gurnick. "As opposed to other times, when you're in the zone and you almost start pressing because you don't want to waste that great feeling you have. When that happens, in some ways you feel more pressure when you're in that zone. But for that week, I was just very relaxed. Everything slowed down. All the cliches."

Since Green's big day, four other players have hit four blasts in a game: Carlos Delgado of the Blue Jays (2003), Josh Hamilton of the Rangers (2012), Scooter Gennett of the Reds (2017) and J.D. Martinez of the D-backs (2017).

"A friend of mine texted me, saying it must be nice every time somebody has three home runs in a game to be remembered," said Green, who hit a Dodgers-record 49 home runs in 2011. "It's true. It's nice to be thought of a couple of times a year, especially when it's a Dodger, and a left-handed hitter at that."
