This day in baseball

During Game 4 of the 1993 World Series, Charlie Williams became the first black umpire to work home plate during the World Series.  Played at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, the game took a record four hours and fourteen minutes to complete as the Toronto Blue Jays won 15-14 over the Phillies.
