The New York Stock Exchange is founded, Frazier outlasts Ali, the compact disc makes its debut, and Baseball Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio dies, all on this day.
1998: Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Nitschke, who played his entire career from 1958 to 1972 for the Green Bay Packers, dies of a heart attack at the age of 61 in Venice, Fla. Nitschke was the anchor of a disciplined defense that helped the Packers win five NFL titles and the first two Super Bowls in the 1960s.
