1800sEdit

  • 1882 - At its first annual convention, the American Association establishes the first permanent staff of umpires in major league history. Previously, the National League and AA umpires were local men hired on game day by the home club.

1900sEdit

  • 1900 - Suffering from a drop in attendance in 1900, National League owners vote to cut costs with a 16-player limit after May 1. The Players Association claims the move is aimed at pressuring players into signing by shrinking the number of jobs.
  • 1901 - Suffering from too much infighting and no leadership, four National League clubs elect A.G. Spalding as president. Two days later, a court voids the election and enjoins him from serving, and he will eventually quit.

1910sEdit

  • 1911:
    • Pittsburgh Pirates owner Barney Dreyfuss proposes that each team in the World Series be required to turn over one-fourth of its share of the gate to the league, to be divided among the other teams. Until now, ten percent of the gross went to the National Commission, 60 percent to the players, and the rest to the two pennant-winning clubs. The National League will pass the resolution and send it to the American League. It marks the beginning of changes that ultimately give players of the first four clubs a percentage of the World Series money.
    • The earned run average (ERA) is adopted as an official statistic.

1920sEdit

  • 1922:
    • In a joint meeting, the ban on nonwaiver trades after June 15 is approved. The National League favors a 50-player limit until June 15, the American League votes for 40. Judge Landis breaks the deadlock in favor of 40. Compensation of World Series umpires is changed from a percentage of the players' pool to a flat $2,000.
    • Still smarting over the rejection of the official scorer's decision in the Ty Cobb case, the national baseball writers' group meets and votes to back the New York group's protest. Fred Lieb, who had filled in the Associated Press box score giving Cobb the disputed hit, asks Ban Johnson to revise the records to .399 for Cobb. Johnson complains of not receiving box scores from some writers, who are appointed by the clubs as official scorers.

1930sEdit

  • 1938 - Major league teams adopt several resolutions. The National League allows the Cincinnati Reds to play their season opener one day before other teams, as a way of honoring the 100th anniversary of baseball and of the 1869 Red Stockings being the first professional team. In other news, Will Harridge is re-elected as American League president and given a 10-year term. The AL permits the Cleveland Indians and Philadelphia Athletics to play night games. Finally, ML agree on a standard ball but disagree on increasing rosters from 23 to 25 players. Judge Landis will eventually decide on 25.

1940sEdit

1950sEdit

1960sEdit

1970sEdit

1980sEdit

1990sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2004 - The District of Columbia Council's decision requiring private financing for at least fifty percent of the construction costs of the Washington Nationals new ballpark may jeopardize the team's tenure in Washington, D.C. The 7-6 vote in favor of this new provision clearly breaks the agreement MLB negotiated with the city to land the former Montreal Expos franchise in the nation's capital.
