YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1904 A ninth inning wild pitch by New York Highlanders pitcher Jack Chesbro gives the AL pennant to the Red Sox on the last day of the season.

1920 Bill Wambsganss completes an unassisted triple play in a World Series game. He hated that it happened, essentially because he didn’t like being the answer to a trivia question when he had a much broader career.

In that same game, Elmer Smith hits the first World Series grand slam, and pitcher Jim Bagby is the first slinger to homer.

1924 Hank Gowdy drops a foul pop up (he stumbled on his mask), allowing Muddy Ruel to get another shot. Ruel doubled and later scored the winning run to give the Senators the World Series.

1957 Lew Burdette blanks the Yankees, 5 – 0, on two days rest to win the World Series with the Braves.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1932 St. Louis sent Gus Mancuso and Ray Starr to the Giants for Ethan Allen, Bob O’Farrell, Jim Mooney, and Bill Walker.

1950 The Cubs send Hank Edwards (and some moolah) to the Dodgers for Dee Fondy and The Rifleman, Chuck Connors.

1961 The Mets and Colt 45s have their expansion drafts. Bob Miller is taken from the Cards by New York, while Houston takes Joey Amalfatano. The Mets tended toward veterans (Roger Craig, Jay Hook, Don Zimmer, Gil Hodges, etc,) while Houston tended to take kids…

1962 Boston signs amateur free agent hitter Tony Conigliaro.

1967 Atlanta sends Mack Jones, Jay Ritchie, and Jim Beauchamp to Cincinnati for Deron Johnson.

1971 Milwaukee sends Tommy Harper, Marty Pattin, Lew Krausse and a minor leaguer to Boston for George Scott, Ken Brett, Jim Lonborg, Joe Lahoud, Don Pavletich, and Billy Conigliaro.
