Bret Boone of the Seattle Mariners makes his Major League debut. Boone collects one hit in four at-bats, with two runs scored and an RBI in a 10-8 win over the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. The debut is notable, as the Boone Family becomes the first three-generation family in MLB history. Bret’s grandfather played 13 seasons with six teams, while his father, Bob Boone, played 19 seasons with three teams retiring in 1990. Bret Boone would be joined by brother Aaron, who made his debut in 1997. ┬áThe Boone family were direct descendants of Pioneer Daniel Boone. All four members of the Boone played in at least one All-Star Game, with Bob and Aaron Boone later becoming one of a few father-son manager tandems in MLB.
