The last of America's Founding Fathers dies, Archduke Franz Ferdinand is assassinated, Mike Tyson bites off a bit of Evander Holyfield's ear, and Elián González returns to Cuba, all on this day.
1963: Hall of Fame third baseman John Franklin "Home Run" Baker, who helped the Philadelphia Athletics win the 1910, 1911 and 1913 World Series, dies of a stroke at age 77 in Trappe, Maryland. Baker played seven years for the Athletics before finishing his major-league career with six seasons playing for the New York Yankees. He is considered by many as the best third baseman of baseball's pre-war era.
