8/30/2014 - Labor Day - Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement. It is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883. In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday.

In baseball, Labor Day signals the end of the Dog Days of Summer and the final stretch run for the Pennant. One of the most famous Labor Day stretch runs in baseball history involved the '69 Miracle Mets. They trailed the beloved Cubbies by nine games on Labor Day 1969 [September 1] and came back to claim the National League Pennant!

It was one of the greatest comebacks in sports history!
