So Tragic

Gord Downie, lead singer of the Tragically Hip has died at the age of 53 and landed on five lists:

Kevin Byrnes gets his seventh hit; this is the second time that Kevin has hit 7, and only the seventh time in the history of the game that a player has hit 7. Needless to say, his lead continues.

Bob Razem get his 5th hit, while Mike Spinney sees his 3rd. Finally, Kelly Keegan's List 1 and Kelly and Craig do it again Lists each snag a second hit.

Congratulations, all!


Why A Tittle-Tattle?

OK, so old-timey football guy YA Tittle died at 90, and 2 players made the catch:

Natalie Tyler's Sporting Chance List and Grady Harmon each grabbed their second hit of the year, moving up to 12th and 13th place

Congrats, Natalie and Grady!
