1800sEdit

  • 1893 - The Cuban Giants, perhaps the nation's best black baseball team, announce their desire to join the proposed Middle States League. Their application is rejected.
  • 1896 - A Chicago jury acquits Cubs outfielder Walt Wilmot of charges of violating the Sabbath law by playing Sunday baseball last year. Charges against other players are subsequently dropped, and the way is cleared for future Sunday ball in Chicago.

1900s-1910sEdit

  • 1919 - John McGraw, Charles A. Stoneham, and Tammany politician Judge Francis X. McQuade buy controlling interest in the New York Giants from the John Brush estate. Having drawn just 265,000 fans in 1918, the club is sold at a bargain price. The 3 will spend many days in courtrooms fighting among themselves, and fending off government charges about Stoneham's business practices.

1920s-1940sEdit

  • 1928 - Alfred J. Reach, founder of the A.J. Reach sporting goods firm, dies at 87. Before 1860, Reach became the first ballplayer to receive a regular salary when he signed as a catcher with the Philadelphia Athletics for $25 a week.
  • 1932 - Babe Ruth rejects a Yankees offer of $70,000, as the major leagues vow to cut salaries by $1 million.

2000sEdit

  • 2002:
    • Slugger Barry Bonds avoids arbitration by agreeing to a five-year, $90 million deal with the San Francisco Giants. The contract also calls for 10-year personal services commitment at the end of his playing days.
    • The Chicago Cubs sign free agent outfielder Darren Lewis to a one-year contract.
