There were many historic achievements that happened over the weekend and it is time to get you up to date.
For most of them checkout our good friend Photi who will be more than happy to fill you in: More History.
Spoiler Alert: I'm about to give away one of them, so quit reading until you have visited Photi.

Then there is also that the Marlins may end up with the leagues most prolific home run hitting infield ever in a season.

The Marlins and the Rockies came into the league in the same year, 1993. And since that time have played each other 130 times with all-time record being:
I'm not sure what that means, but I do know this: the Marlins are winning the World Series Championship race between the two.
And that ends History and Trivia Monday.
P.S. Don't expect this to be a regular feature on this site.
