A word about May 14

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We remember May 14:

US history:     On this day in 1787, the story of the US would change forever when delegates from the 13 states met to change The Articles of Confederation.    It did not really start until May 25 when everybody was in town.   By September, the sessions produced the US Constitution that we know today.    It was subsequently sent to the states for ratification.   The Bill of Rights, or the first 10 Amendments, were added between 1789-1791. 

The story of the West:    The Louisiana Purchase was completed in 1803.    A year later, Lewis & Clark began their mission to explore the lands of the West.   They men returned on September 23rd, 1806, after almost two and a half years.  They brought back tremendous information that led to the settlement of the West.  It must have been an eye popping trip for the men in that mission.

Music files:    Time flies and we recall that Frank Sinatra died many years ago this week.  It seems like it was yesterday that I was driving and heard the story about Sinatra’s death on the radio.

Rock groups:   We remember Jack Bruce who was born on this day in 1943.   He died in 2014.  CREAM was one of the super groups of the 1960s.  They were Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce.    

Hall of Fame: We remember today Atanasio (Rigal) Perez, the pride of Ciego de Avila and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  He was born in 1942.  Tony broke with the Cincinnati Reds in the summer of 1964.   He went on to have a wonderful major league career:  2,777 games, 2,732 hits, 379 HR, 1,659 RBI and a very good .279 career batting average.

Baseball notes:    We say happy birthday to Dennis Martinez who was born in Nicaragua on this day in 1954.    From 1976 to 1997, Dennis was a very successful major league pitcher:  245 wins, 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and a perfect game in 1991.
