The Scottsboro Boys are arrested, John and Yoko take to bed, a New York City nightclub fire kills 87, and mad cow disease halts British beef exports, all on this day.
1999: Cal Ripken Sr., who spent 36 years in the Baltimore Orioles organization as a player, scout, coach and manager, dies of lung cancer at the age of 63 in Baltimore, Md. In 1987, Ripken became the first -- and only -- father to manage two sons, Billy Ripken and future Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr., simultaneously in the majors. He's seen here, at far right, in 1996 with his sons Cal Jr. (far left) and Billy (second from right) at his induction into the Orioles' Hall of Fame.
