YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1964 His health failing, Fred Hutchinson retires from the Reds. The successful manager would die of lung cancer in about three weeks.

1972 Three pinch hit singles in the bottom of the ninth inning, the last by Angel Manual, give the Oakland As a 3 – 2 win over the Reds in game four of the World Series.

1981 Rick Monday’s ninth inning homer finishes off the Expos to win the pennant for the Dodgers.

2004 Curt Schilling, and his bloody sock – the result of a procedure meant to stabilize a dislocated tendon in his ankle, helps Boston beat the Yankees, 4 – 2, in game six of the ALCS.

2019 Jose Altuve crushes a homer off of Aroldis Chapman to beat the Yankees and win the AL pennant for Houston.  (And then the baseball authorities got involved…)

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1927 Washington sends Earl McNeely and Dick Coffman to the Browns for Milt Gaston and Sad Sam Jones.

1949 The Athletics send Nellie Fox to the White Sox for Joe Tipton. Oops.

1959 Baltimore sends two players to be named later and cash to the Dodgers for Jim Gentile.

1965 The Mets send a player to be named later (Tom Parsons) and cash to Houston for Jerry Grote.
