Reader Neal W. writes in to ask:
"Has there ever been a doubleheader where the home team played two different teams?"
I don't know the answer--I'm hoping another reader will.
But it does remind me of looking at team schedules as a kid and often being fooled that there was a double-header against two different teams. Back in the days when there still were scheduled double-headers, it wasn't unusual to look at a Sunday on the calendar and see two games scheduled. Occasionally I saw two games where the opponents were different and got surprised. Eventually I realized that the calendars were actually showing two different Sundays for a month that ended on a Sunday or a Monday. They did this to save space rather than print an entire extra week at the bottom that would be mostly empty.
But back to the question at hand--does anybody know?
