YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1892 Tim Keefe and James “Pud” Galvin, both 300 game winners, face each other with Keefe’s Phillies beating the Browns, 2 – 0. The NL wouldn’t see a matchup of 300 game winners again until Greg Maddux beat Roger Clemens in 2005.

1946 Little Rock’s Lew Flick got nine straight hits in the opening game of a Southern Association double header. Flick finished 9 – 10 in the 19 inning loss to Memphis. He finished with three more hits in the second game, a Little Rock win. Flick, a former Athletic, drove in not a single run in his nine hit game.

1959 Finally!!! The Red Sox use Elijah “Pumpsie” Green as a pinch runner and shortstop – the last team to integrate the roster in MLB.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1976 Montreal sends Jim Dwyer and Pepe Mangual to the Mets for Wayne Garrett and Del Unser.

1986 Chicago sends Davey Lopes to the Astros for Frank DiPino.

1988 New York needs a hitter and gets Ken Phelps from the Mariners for Jay Buhner, Rick Balabon, and (later) Troy Evers.

1991 The Phillies sign amateur free agent pitcher Ricky Bottalico.

1997 Philadelphia sends catcher Darren Daulton to the Marlins for Billy McMillon.
