On this day in 1980, after sitting dormant for over 100 years, Mount St. Helens in Washington State suddenly erupted.  

- Making a total ash of itself!

Also on this date in 1912 the Detroit Tigers called a strike for 48 hours protesting Ty Cobb’s suspension for assaulting a heckler.  

- This began the Tigers habit of taking too many “called strikes”. 


Have a great day and I’ll see you back here Thursday!
