On this day in 1939, the first Major League Baseball game was televised on W2XBS (which, rather than being an 1990’s hip hop act, was the old name for WNBC).  The Reds and the (Brooklyn) Dodgers split a doubleheader at Ebbets Field.  Celebrate televised baseball with a pint at The Hay Merchant1100 Westheimer, at 8:00 PM.  Tonight the Reds will be playing the Cards on TV, so the last half of the game will probably still be on. Sample something from the 77 individually-regulated taps (including at least one nitro and 5 casks) or from the food menu.

Happy Birthday to Brandford Marsalis, who turns 53 today.
