YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1925 Max Carey’s four for six day includes completing the cycle.

1980 – A game my friend, Andy Finch, remembers well… Angels shortstop Fred Patek blasts three homers against the Red Sox as Los Angeles wins, 20 – 2.

2015 Max Scherzer tops the Pirates and throws a no-hitter. It was a perfect game into the ninth when, with two outs, Jose Tabata leans into a pitch (doesn’t move his body and ducks his elbow into the pitch) and gets plunked.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1901 Philadelphia (NL) purchased an aging Hughie Jennings from Brooklyn for $3000.

1950 The New York Giants signed amateur free agent (Negro League player) Willie Mays.

1958 Los Angeles signed amateur outfielder Willie Davis.
