1800sEdit

  • 1861 - Wearing ice skates, the champion Atlantics defeat the Charter Oak Club, 36-27 on a game played on frozen Litchfield Pond in South Brooklyn.
  • 1882 - National League players are now responsible for carrying their own bats and uniforms on road trips. They are also required to purchase and keep clean two complete uniforms, including the white linen ties to be worn on the field at all times.

1900s-1920sEdit

  • 1915 - The New York Yankees purchase Wally Pipp and Hugh High from the Detroit Tigers for a reported $5,000 each. Baseball historian Lyle Spatz (Yankees Coming, Yankees Going) writes that this was the first of some promised funneling of ball players to the recently-sold Yankees franchise.

1930-1950sEdit

  • 1958 - The Hall of Fame fails to enshrine any new members for the first time since 1950.

1960s-1970sEdit

  • 1971 - Commissioner Bowie Kuhn announces former Negro League players will have a separate wing in the Hall of Fame. Due to the controversy the announcement causes, it is decided inclusion in regular Hall of Fame is more fitting and more of an honor for the former black players.

1980s-1990sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2002 - The Minnesota Supreme Court refuses to consider an appeal of an injunction that forces the Twins to fulfill their Metrodome lease in 2002. The decision puts an end for this season any possibility of contraction in major league baseball.
  • 2005:
    • A dentist, who became partially blind after being struck attempting to catch a foul ball, is appealing his case against the Philadelphia Phillies which alleges more needs done to protect fans. The case, demised by a Philadelphia Common Pleas judge citing multiple warnings were made by the club including PA announcements, text on the back of the ticket, and posted signs in the ball park, will now be heard in the state’s Commonwealth Court.
    • Needing to fill the void created by the departure of Sammy Sosa and Moisés Alou, the Chicago Cubs avoid arbitration and sign Aramis Ramírez to a $8.95 million, one-year contract. Ramírez, who hit .318 with 36 home runs and 103 RBI in 2004, established a club record for a third baseman.
