Last night the Philadelphia Phillies accomplished a dubious feat that had not been done in nearly 30-years. The Phils blew a six-run (or more) lead heading into the 9th inning for the first time since May 10, 1994. 


That’s a long damn time ago. The statistic was so mind boggling that it got me wondering, what was going on May 10, 1994? 

Here are ten historical facts from May 10, 1994, the last time the Phillies imploded like a cheap suit bought at the Garden State Park flea market.
