1912 In the second game of a doubleheader, Honus Wagner hits for the cycle.

1965 At the plate, batter Juan Marichal’s response to a close return throw from a catcher to the pitcher is to wallop Johnny Roseboro with his bat, igniting one heck of a brawl.

1968 Continuing with the brawl theme – Tiger Dick McAuliffe charged the mound and landed on Sox pitcher Tommy John, separating his shoulder and ending his season.

1989 Nolan Ryan strikes out Rickey Henderson to record his 5000th career strikeout.

Meanwhile, Felix Fermin is the first player in nearly 70 years to have four sacrifices in the same game.
