I know we’re all starved for baseball right now, and if you really want to catch an old Angels game, a 4-2 loss to the Orioles from 1995 will be on Tuesday night on ESPN (7 p.m. PT).

You might remember the game as when Tim Salmon homered off Hall of Famer Mike Mussina. It was the last of five career home runs for Salmon against Mussina, against whom he hit just .230/.278/.500 in his career.

But perhaps — just maybethis game is more known nationally as the night Cal Ripken Jr. played in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking Lou Gehrig’s iconic record.

Before that game is on your television, please enjoy these Tuesday links.
