YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!

1894 Jack Manning, Quaker outfielder, is the first to hit three homers in a game, though his team loses, 11 – 7, to the Chicago White Stockings.

1905 Christy Mathewson opens the 1905 World Series with a 3 – 0 shutout of the Philadelphia As.

1910 Nap Lajoie is allowed to get six infield hits by Jack O’Connor and the St. Louis Browns in an effort to wrest the batting crown (and a new car) from Ty Cobb.

1919 Cincinnati drops the White Sox, 10 – 5, to win the World Series – a gift from the White Sox and various gamblers.

1928 New York sweeps the Cards, taking game four, 7 – 3.

1938 New York sweep the Cubs, taking game four, 8 – 3. It’s the third straight World Series win – the first time that had happened.

1961 The Yankees clock the Reds, 13 – 5, thanks to a pair of homer by Johnny Blanchard. The win gives the Yankees the World Series.

1996 Jeffrey Maier kills the Orioles by helping Derek Jeter’s fly ball go over the fence. The umpires blew this one – and it was painfully obvious.

2005 Chris Burke homers in the 18th inning – Astros take the Braves in the longest post season game ever.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1925 Chicago drafts Hack Wilson from Toledo in the Rule 5 Draft.

1947 The Cubs sign amateur free agent Randy Jackson.

1970 Washington sends Ed Brinkman, Joe Coleman, Jim Hannan, and Aurelio Rodriguez to Detroit for Elliott Maddox, Denny McLain, Norm McRae, and Don Wert.

1988 Toronto puts pen to paper with amateur free agent Carlos Delgado.

As you can imagine, the vast number of transactions on this day are releases or the granting of free agency.
