Hello from Rochester, NY

Did You Know….  (2023 Edition):

Former Red Wing Jeff Tackett, hit a home run in his last major
    league at-bat.

Billie Holiday Was Billy Crystal's Babysitter.

Metallica is the first and only band to have played on all seven
    continents.

The Four Corners is the only spot in the US where you can stand in
     four states at once: Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.

Dolly Parton once entered a drag queen celebrity impersonator
     contest AS HERSELF and lost.

In 1941, Gladys Gooding became baseball's first organist as she
     played for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

In Mel Brooks' 'Silent Movie,' mime Marcel Marceau is the only person
     who has a speaking role.

Canada is south of Detroit (just look at a map).

Jack Norworth, who wrote "Take Me Out To The Ballgame," never
     attended a game.

Denny McLain, the last 30 game winner in the major leagues, was a
     featured performer in Las Vegas as an organist.

Elvis Presley played 636 consecutive shows in Las Vegas over an
    eight-year period (1969-1976). He played two shows per evening
    every day of the week. Each show sold out.

Barry Manilow didn't write his hit song, "I Write The Songs."

Taylor Swift was actually named after legendary singer-songwriter
    James Taylor.

Ralph Kiner of the Pirates won the home run championship seven
    years in a row.

On August 17, 1957, Richie Ashburn of the Philadelphia Phillies hit
    spectator Alice Roth with a foul ball, breaking her nose. As Alice was
    being carried off the field on a stretcher, Ashburn hit her with another
    foul ball, injuring her knee.

One in five country music songs refer to alcohol, one in three to tears
    and one in seven to "mama."

    1977.
