Fun Fact: Before sports shows and tickers, there was a telephone number in the United States people could call to hear all the sports scores for a given night. It was called Sports Phone and it launched in 1972 and ended in 2000 as sports radio, tv shows, and the internet took over. The service reached its yearly peak in 1981 when they received more than 50 million calls in a year. Its most popular three-day span was in 1972 when they received more than 600,000 calls when pitcher Tom Seaver was traded from the New York Mets to the Cincinnati Reds.
