The Week That Was: June 30, 2019

Welcome back to The Week That Was, where nothing is made up but you can still argue that some of the points don't matter.


Matt Vasgersian called play-by-play of his 274th MLB national telecast on Sunday when the Yankees beat the Red Sox in London. That ties him with Josh Lewin, who was working Red Sox radio that day, for 16th-most on record.

(We may have as many as four milestones in this space next week.)

This Date In History:

Tuesday, July 2 is the sixth anniversary of Homer Bailey's 2013 no-hitter, which aired nationally on MLB Network with Vasgersian, Sean Casey and Sam Ryan on the call.

This Week in the Tennis Section:

The year's third major begins at Wimbledon, with 10 hours a day of coverage (6 a.m. to about 4 p.m.) on the ESPN linear networks. Almost 160 hours of action each of the first four days!

This Week on the Playoff of Dreams:

Philadelphia leads New York 2-0 in the 1909 World Series after vanquishing the Tigers in the ALCS.
