1800s

  • 1887 - At Hot Springs, Arkansas, Albert Spalding meets with the Chicago White Stockings players and exacts from each man a pledge of total abstinence from drinking during the coming season. With the entire outfield gone from last year's team and pitcher Jim McCormick holding out at home in New Jersey, the champion White Stockings will have to rely on young players.
  • 1891 - The New York Giants' salary list is leaked to the press. It shows a total player payroll of $54,600 with Buck Ewing's $5,500 salary topping the scale.

1900s-1940s

1950s-1970s

  • 1956 - Supporting the Wagner-Cashmore plan to build a $30-million downtown Brooklyn sports center, Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley promises to buy four million dollars worth of bonds.
  • 1958 - Ted Williams signs a one-year contract with the Boston Red Sox. Reports on the worth of the contract estimate from $135,000 to $150,000. Either way, Williams becomes the highest paid player in major league history.
  • 1968 - Voters in King County, Washington, approve by 62 percent a $40 million bond issue to build a domed, multipurpose stadium.
  • 1976 - The American League grants the new expansion franchise in Seattle to a six-man investment group that includes movie star and entertainer Danny Kaye. The new franchise, called the Mariners, will start play in 1977.

1980s-1990s

  • 1995 - US President Bill Clinton’s deadline for a resolution to the baseball strike passes without a resolution. On January 26, Clinton had told the players and owners to resume bargaining and reach an agreement by the 6th. The strike will continue for nearly two more months.

2000s

  • 2005 - At Mazatlan, Mexico, pitcher Francisco Campos turns in another brilliant outing, and Mexican champion Mazatlan Eagles (Aguilas de Mazatlán) holds on in the final game, edging the Dominican Republic, 4–3, to win the 56th Caribbean World Series.
  • 2006 - Daniel Cabrera allowed only one run and two hits in five innings, pitching the Dominican Republic's Licey Tigers past Mexico's Mazatlan 3-1 in the Caribbean Series. In the second game, the Caracas Lions of Venezuela remained undefeated after five games with a 5–1 victory over Puerto Rico's Carolina Giants. Home field advantage aside, Venezuela is heavily favored in tomorrow’s decisive game against Dominican Republic.
