In 1886, baseball player Old Hoss Radbourn was the first person in history to be photographed giving someone the middle finger.
Old Hoss Radbourn pitched 73 complete games in 1884. He finished the season with a record of 60-12, 441 strikeouts, and an ERA of just 1.38. He then went on to start and win all 3 games of the 1884 World Series, allowing just 3 runs - all unearned. His 60 wins in a season is an MLB record that will probably never be broken. After games, his arm was so sore that he couldn't comb his own hair.
