YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1884 Columbus’ Cannonball Ed Morris fires a no-hitter to beat Pittsburgh, 5
– 0. By the way, Pittsburgh purchased Morris at the end of the season. If
you have never heard of him, neither had I, but he is considered one of the
early great lefty throwers.

1922 A Supreme Court decision says that baseball, being a sport, is exempt
from anti-trust laws.

1928 Bill Terry’s six RBI come courtesy of his four hits – and completes the
cycle.

1962 Buck O’Neill is signed by the Cubs to be a coach – the first black coach
in the majors.

2000 Former Yankee Randy Velarde snares a Shane Spencer liner, steps on second,
and tags a runner coming from first – completing an unassisted triple play.

2010 Roy Halliday, only 20 days later, duplicates the feat of Dallas Braden
and throws a perfect game to beat the Marlins.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1906 Washington purchases Daredevil Dave Altizer from Lancaster in the Ohio-Penn League… Loved that nickname.

1922 The White Sox send three players and cash to San Fran of the PCL for Willie Kamm.

1925 The Yankees send three players and cash to St. Paul of the AA for Mark Koenig.

1931 The Cubs get Rollie Hemsley from the Pirates for Earl Grace.

1939 Philadelphia sends Claude Passeau to the Cubs for Kirby Higbe, Ray Harrell, and Joe Marty.

1965 San Fran sends Ed Bailey, Harvey Kuenn and Bob Hendley to the Cubs for Dick Bertell and Len Gabrielson.
