This Day in Baseball History:
March 29, 1973 > Orange baseballs -- an invention of colorful Oakland A's owner Charlie Finley -- are used in an exhibition game between the A's and the Cleveland Indians. Afterwards, players on both teams complain that the orange baseballs are more slippery than regulation balls, and the experiment is nipped in the bud.
