1800sEdit

1900s-1940sEdit

  • 1900 - Baltimore Orioles manager John McGraw threatens that if the National League drops the Orioles, which is controlled by the owners of the Brooklyn Superbas, he will form an American League team. Two weeks later the NL Circuit Committee recommends buying out Baltimore, Washington, Cleveland, and Louisville and going to an eight-team league. McGraw then organizes a Baltimore club in the AL.
  • 1906 - The owners of the Boston Beaneaters reject a $250,000 offer for the team, which is destined to finish last again.
  • 1920 - A plan developed by Charles Ebbets many years ago is finally adopted: the annual drafting of players from the minor leagues will be done in inverse order of the final standings.
  • 1946:
    • Boston Red Sox star Ted Williams receives his discharge from the U.S. Marine Air Corps after a three-year stint serving in World War II. In spite of the long absence from competitive baseball, Williams will return to the major leagues by hitting .342 with 38 home runs and 123 RBI in 1946.
    • The first official professional game is played in Venezuela, launching the newly constituted four-team Liga de Béisbol Profesional de Venezuela. The league is composed of four teams: Cervecería Caracas, Magallanes, Vargas and Venezuela. The inaugural game is won by Magallanes over Venezuela, 5–2, behind a strong pitching from Alex Carrasquel, as he gave up 11 hits in a complete game effort.

  • 2006 - Free-agent relief pitcher Julián Tavárez agreed a two-year deal with the Boston Red Sox worth $6.7 million. Boston also re-signed free agent infielder Tony Graffanino to a $2.05 million, one-year contract that avoids a salary arbitration hearing.
