Thursday, June 19th

On this date in 1912, the US government established the eight-hour workday. What's the longest amount of time you ever spent at work in one day?

also on this date in 1846, the New York Baseball Club defeated the New York Knickerbockers 23-to-1 in the first officially recorded, organized baseball match. The game was played in Hoboken, New Jersey and was ended after only four innings. One player was fined six-cents for cursing.
