1900s-1960s[]

  • 1925 - Marv Goodwin, a former pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals who joined the Cincinnati Reds at the end of the season, is killed in a plane he was piloting. At age 34, Goodwin is the first active player to die from injuries sustained in an airplane crash. Goodwin was one of the original spitballers who was "grandfathered."
  • 1957:
    • The Giants purchase the Class-A Phoenix Seals team and will convince the Pacific Coast League to accept Phoenix as a location for the Seals.
    • The Washington Senators reject the initial overtures of Minneapolis-St. Paul cities to move the team there.
  • 1964 - After just 11 years in Milwaukee, the Braves Board of Directors votes to ask the National League for permission to move to Atlanta. Milwaukee County officials sue to block the move.

1970s[]

1990s[]

  • 1998 - The New York Yankees closed out their historic season with 3–0 victory against the San Diego Padres, sweeping San Diego in four games to win their record 24th World Series championship. Andy Pettitte gets the victory, and Scott Brosius is named Series MVP. The Game Four victory gave the Yankees 125 wins against 50 losses for a .714 winning percentage, the best in the majors since their Murderers' Row club of 1927, as their American League record of 114 regular-season victories were the most ever for a major league champion team.

2000s[]

  • 2000 - The Yankees defeat the Mets 4–3, in 12 innings, in Game One of the World Series. The longest game in World Series history (4 hours, 51 minutes) is ended on José Vizcaíno' single which drives home Tino Martinez. It is Vizcaíno's fourth hit of the night. The Mets lead, 3-2, going into the ninth, but reliever Armando Benítez surrenders the tying run on a sacrifice fly by Chuck Knoblauch. The victory is the Yankees 13th in a row in Series play for a new record. Todd Pratt of the Mets ties a Series record by being hit by pitches two times.
