This Day in Baseball History:
August 22, 1989 > Nolan Ryan of the Texas Rangers becomes the first Major League pitcher to reach the 5,000-strikeout milestone when he fans Rickey Henderson in the fifth inning of a 2-0 loss to the Oakland A's. The future Hall of Famer will whiff a total of 5,714 batters by the time he hangs it up in 1993.
