Playing in front of a sold-out hometown crowd on Saturday, Derek Jeter sent his record-setting 3,000th hit deep into left-field, making him the 28th major leaguer and first New York Yankees player to reach the hitting milestone.
And who caught the potentially money-making ball? Christian Lopez, a 23-year-old fan whose girlfriend gave him tickets to the game as a birthday present.
Here's a look at some notable birthdays being celebrated today:
Kevin Bacon Age: 53 Occupation: Actor, Singer, and Songwriter Known For: His star-making turn in 1984's 'Footloose,' his musical group The Bacon Brothers, and being separated from everyone in Hollywood by no more than six degrees
Toby Keith Age: 50 Occupation: Singer and Songwriter Known For: Selling millions of country albums, his song 'Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue,' and a well-publicized feud with the Dixie Chicks
Civic Amarillo & the Amarillo Opera present the 9th Annual Summer Youth Musical OKLAHOMA! Starting tonight at the Globe-News Performing Arts Center. Today I visited with Kallie and Jerri who both play Aunt Eller. We discussed rehearsing for the musical and how the songs will get stuck in your head.
Facebook finally settled the rumors on Wednesday. Through a partnership with Skype, Facebook is rolling out integrated video calling to the public beginning immediately. Now you can see the people you've been avoiding since high school.
The new integrated feature will not require the separate Skype client, but instead, just a touted "under 30 second wait" on your first use to install, call and chat.
