YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1905 Boston’s Bill Dinneen tops the White Sox, 2 – 0, without allowing a hit. Dinneen later became an umpire and remains the only person to both throw a no-hitter and work the plate as an umpire for a no-hitter in MLB history.

1951 Bill Sharman – the basketball star – was a Dodger farmhand called up to the big leagues when he got tossed for yelling at the umpires from the bench. Sharman never appeared in a major league game, but he got tossed from one…

1973 By striking out 16 batters over 11 innings against Minnesota, Nolan Ryan’s 383rd strike out of the season sets the new record, passing Sandy Koufax’s old record.

2020 DJ LeMahieu bats .362 to win the American League batting crown, having won the same title in the National League in 2019 for Colorado.  He becomes the first player to win crowns in both leagues.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1892 The Giants purchased Willie Keeler from Binghamton of the Eastern League for $800.

1943 The Athletics purchased George Kell, Lew Flick, and Woody Wheaton from Lancaster of the Interstate League.

1986 Atlanta signs amateur free agent catcher Eddie Perez.
