1889 The New York Giants (NL) topped the Brooklyn Bridegrooms (AA) in the first post season series between two league champions.

2014 With two outs in the bottom of the ninth of game seven, Alex Gordon singles, but the ball gets by Andre Blanco and heads to the wall.  Gordon stops at third instead of taking a risk and trying to beat a throw to the plate (which probably beats him to home if it’s good).  Madison Bumgarner closes out the ninth, giving the Giants a World Series championship over the Royals.


1928 The Giants sent Lefty O’Doul and cash to the Phillies for Freddie Leach.

1962 The Angels sent cash to the Yankees to purchase Bob Turley.

1969 The Phillies signed free agent pitcher Jim Bunning.

1993 The Mets signed amateur free agent infielder Rey Ordonez.

2001 Texas signed amateur free agent pitcher Edinson Volquez.

2013 The White Sox signed amateur free agent slugger (and Cuban defector) Jose Abreu.
