On This Day
Collection of Referees and Umpires
On This Day, at some point in sports history, something very special happened and a referee or umpire was right in the middle of it. Whether it was an incredible championship battle or the marking of a milestone, there is a special reason why this day is noteworthy and it has been marked for history. Today is the big day!
If you love your sports history you will love browsing through posts in this collection. It is very similar to browsing the History Collection – only with dates. If there is no date in the headline, then it happened on the day of the post.
Did you know that the very first video footage of a football match was recorded on Sept 24, 1898? On March 08, 1971, Arthur Mercante earned $500 to referee The Fight of the Century between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. These are just a couple of examples of the posts you will find in this collection.
I will keep adding to this page until we have one for each day, including leap year 🙂
