The C.A. six tips of the day for Oct. 26

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Today is Friday, Oct. 26, the 300th day of 2012.

It was on this day in 1986 when one of the most infamous baseball plays of all time occurred – Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner let what appeared to be an easy ground ball go through his legs in the 10th inning of the sixth game of the World Series against the New York Mets.

Every fan knows what happened next – the Sox lost that game and the seventh and final one of the series.

On this day in 2001 President George W. Bush signed into law the USA Patriot Act.

And on this day in 1984, an American infant, known as “Baby Fae,” received a heart transfer from a baboon. Sadly, she died three weeks later from an infection.

Today's birthdays include: Hillary Clinton (1947); Pat Sajak (1947); and Keith Urban (1967).
