YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1923 Cleveland is the first American League team to score a run in all innings they bat (only eight – a home game) when they clout the Red Sox, 27 – 24. The Indians put up 13 in the sixth inning, and only had one run innings in the fourth and seventh innings.

2009 Alan Embree wins a game without throwing a pitch. Having entered the game, Embree picked off Austin Kearns to end the top of the eighth, and then Colorado rallied to win in the bottom of the eighth.

2011 Firefighter Shannon Stone reaches for a ball thrown toward him by Josh Hamilton, loses his footing, and falls about twenty feet to his death in the outfield stands.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1902 Philadelphia purchases outfielder Danny Murphy from Norwich of the Connecticut State League.

1948 Satchel Paige signs with Cleveland – and would win six of seven decisions down the stretch for the World Series bound team.

1972 Oakland signs amateur free agent outfielder Claudell Washington.

2008 Cleveland sends CC Sabathia to the Brewers for Matt LaPorta, Zach Jackson, Rob Bryson and (later) Michael Brantley.
