This Day In History – January 12

1966

Batman premiered on ABC! 

The original Batman was played by Adam West, as he donned his tight gray leotard alongside a young Burt Ward, who played Robin the Boy Wonder

The caped crusaders fought crime for three seasons

1995

The O.J. Simpson trial began in Los Angeles

He didn’t do it. 

Well, he did it, he was just acquitted.

1999

Mark McGwire’s 70th home run ball was sold at auction in New York for $3 million to an anonymous bidder

It was the most money ever paid for a sports artifact
