1800s[]

  • 1897 - With the New York Giants leading 7–0 after two innings, the Washington Senators started delaying the game in hopes that the imminent rainstorm will wash the game out. Umpire Tom Lynch forfeits the game to New York.
  • 1899 - Jack McCarthy of the Pittsburgh Pirates hits a game-winning three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning when his drive into the corner goes through a door that a fan then shuts before the fielder can reach it. The National League eventually orders this game replayed.
    • Tom O'Brien of the New York Giants received perhaps the first intentional walk in major league history. In the eighth inning, with runners on second and third bases with one out, Ed Delahanty of the Philadelphia Phillies told teammate pitcher Jack Fifield to walk O'Brien, who have hit well all day. Then next batter, Fred Hartman, hit into a double play.

1900s[]

1910s[]

  • 1913 - The Philadelphia Quakers defeated the visiting New York Giants for the third time in a row, a come-from-behind 3–2 victory. The Phillies tied the score at two apiece when Gavvy Cravath hit a two-run pinch- homer in the eighth inning off Christy Mathewson. After the first two batters were retired in the ninth, Philadelphia pushed across a run in to win. The struggling Giants are in fifth place.

1920s[]

  • 1927 - In the first matchup of pitching brothers in major league history, Jesse Barnes defeated his brother Virgil Barnes in the Brooklyn Dodgers 7–6 victory over the New York Giants.

1930s[]

1940s[]

1950s[]

  • 1950 - New York Yankees pitcher Vic Raschi, troubled by the new rule that requires a one-second stop before delivery with men on base, balks four times in one game, a club record and two fewer than the single-season record. Nevertheless, Raschi wins, 4–3, over the Chicago White Sox. He will finish the season with six balks to tie the since-topped American League mark.

1960s[]

1970s[]

1980s[]

1990s[]

  • 1995 - Rookie third baseman David Bell made his debut with the Cleveland Indians in a 14–7 victory over Detroit. His appearance represented the third generation of his family to play in the major leagues. David’s father, Buddy, and his grandfather, Gus, previously starred in the big leagues. The Bells became the second three-generation family in major league history, joining the Boone family (Ray, Bob, Bret and Aaron). Gus Bell will die four days later.
  • 1999:
    • For the first time, Cuba faced a major league competition in the United States, and its national team defeated the struggling Baltimore Orioles, 12–6.
    • Creighton Gubanich of the Boston Red Sox hit a grand slam for his first major league hit in a 12–11, 10-inning loss to Oakland at McAfee Coliseum. Gubanich became the fourth major leaguer to accomplish the feat and the first since Seattle's Orlando Mercado did it on September 19, 1982.

2000s[]

  • 2005:
    • With a 9-0 margin, a state legislative committee votes to approve a bill which will require the Los Angeles Angels, formerly known as the Anaheim Angels, to disclose on all promotional material, including tickets, ads and team publications that the team is based in Anaheim. Using the example of an orange juice company selling OJ that contains no oranges, California Assemblyman Tom Umberg, the bill's sponsor, says he is trying to promote truth in sports advertising.
    • The Chicago White Sox, with the best record in the majors, established a big league record having led in all 28 games played to this point in the season.
