Today in history: April 1

As this blog becomes fully-developed, we will have a Today in History segment each day. A large portion of this site is going to be dedicated to the history of hockey in Indianapolis -- the eight championship teams, the Hall of Famers, the great games and more.

The first Monday of each month, we will have a new member of the Indianapolis Hockey Hall of Honor. Later this month, we will count down the 10 greatest playoff games in Indianapolis hockey history.
