1950s-1960s[]

  • 1954 - MLB owners vote down the sale of the Philadelphia Athletics to a hometown syndicate. A week later, Arnold Johnson buys a controlling interest in the Athletics from the Mack family for $3.5 million and moves the team to Kansas City.
  • 1958 - In San Francisco, construction began on the new ballpark for the Giants. The rocks in the area resembled candlesticks.

1970s-1990s[]

2000s[]

  • 2002:
    • The New York Mets, after being unable to get permission to talk to manager Lou Piniella from Seattle, and deciding not to wait ten days after World Series for the availability of San Francisco skipper Dusty Baker, give Art Howe a four-year, $9.4 million deal to manage the team. Howe managed the Oakland Athletics to two AL West titles (2000, 2002) championships with his teams winning 383 games during the last four seasons matching Joe Torre's total for the Yankees. A day later, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays will name Piniella as their team's new skipper, signing him a four-year contract. As compensation to sign Piniella away from Seattle, Tampa Bay sends their All-Star outfielder Randy Winn (.298 BA, 14 HR, 75 RBI) to Seattle for minor leaguer Antonio Pérez.
    • The Florida Marlins do not renew the contract of John Routh, the 43-year-old man who has been known as "Billy the Marlin", since the Florida's first game in 1993. Although 'Billy' will return next season, a new person will be hired to wear the 35-pound costume as the team is seeks to increase the mascot's visibility by changing the overall role of the character.
