1800sEdit

1900sEdit

  • 1909 - Alfred Reach and John Rogers sell the Philadelphia Phillies to a group headed by Israel Durham. Durham will become president.

1910-1930sEdit

  • 1935 - The New York Yankees release longtime star outfielder Babe Ruth, freeing him to sign a $20,000 contract with the Boston Braves of the National League. Ruth’s new contract with the Braves also gives him a share of the team’s profits. In 1934, Ruth had endured one of his worst seasons with the Yankees-at least by his lofty standards-with a .288 batting average, 22 home runs and 84 RBI. In 1935, he will play just only 28 games for the Braves before announcing his retirement on June 2 at the age of 40. Ruth will hit the final three home runs of his major league career on May 25 against the Pittsburgh Pirates, giving him a total of 714. His last home run will clear the right field grandstand at Forbes Field and will travel an estimated 600 feet.

1940s-1960sEdit

1970s-1980sEdit

1990sEdit

  • 1992 - Boston Red Sox owner Jean R. Yawkey dies at the age of 83. For the first time in 59 years, someone other than a Yawkey will own the team. Mrs. Yawkey's husband, Tom, became president of the Red Sox in 1933, and was the sole owner of the team for 44 seasons, longer than anyone in major league baseball history.

2000sEdit

  • 2005 - Atlanta Braves pitcher Mike Hampton and his wife offer a $25,000 reward for the safe return of Jessica Marie Lunsford. The nine-year old, who disappeared from her Florida bedroom four days ago, is in the same grade with one of the Hamptons' two sons at Homosassa Elementary School.
