July 18, 1970
In his 2,639th major league game, Giants outfielder Willie Mays singles off of Expos right-hander Mike Wegener for his 3000th hit. Mays reaches the milestone in the second inning of San Francisco’s 10-1 rout of Montreal at Candlestick Park.

I used to love the Willie Mays cartoon show when I was a kid back in the 70’s. Everybody loved Willie Mays.

Aug. 12, 1959: “4 Chimp Children Take Up the City Ways,” the headline said, explaining how these chimpanzees at the Bronx Zoo leapt into the city water on hot New York days, even though they would never swim in the Congo. “On warmer mornings, they get wet without coaxing although they squeal and hesitate like human 4-year-olds,” The Times reported. As well as smooch their masters like human 4-year-olds. Photo: Arthur Brower/The New York Times
