This Day in History:  1889 – The Eiffel Tower is dedicated in Paris, France in a ceremony presided over by Gustave Eiffel, the tower’s designer.

Fact of the Day:  The Eiffel Tower was almost demolished in 1909, a time when the tower was the tallest man-made structure in the world.  Its value as an antenna for radio transmission ultimately saved the landmark.

Quote of the Day:

Did You Know?   Al Woods is the only player in MLB history to hit a homerun in his debut, while playing for a team (the Toronto Blue Jays) that was also debuting that day.
