Sources

1900s-1940sEdit

  • 1900 - Boston Beaneaters catcher Marty Bergen kills his wife and two children with an axe, then takes his own life. Reportedly depressed by his son's death in 1898, Bergen, at age of 28, had suffered an apparently career-ending broken hip during a game last season. Billy Hamilton is the only Boston player to attend the backstop's funeral.

1950s-1970sEdit

  • 1953 - The Augusta, Georgia club (South Atlantic League) announces that it is changing its nickname from the Tigers to the Ikes. Because of fans nixing the presidential name, it will changed again on February 9th to the Rams.
  • 1959 - The Players Association orders their International League members not to sign a pact unless it includes their pension plan.

1980s-1990Edit

  • 1994 - Major league owners amend the major league agreement, giving complete power to the commissioner on labor negotiations. Bud Selig will continue to act as interim commissioner.

2000sEdit

  • 2000 - Major league baseball owners vote to approve the $320 million sale of the Cleveland Indians to Larry Dolan and his family trusts. They also vote to give Commissioner Bud Selig power "without limitation" to ensure "there is an appropriate level of long-term competitive balance among the clubs." He can override all of baseball's rules, and even attempt to impose a salary cap if he thinks it necessary to reach an agreement with the players following the 2001 season.
  • 2006:
    • Baseball officials are cautiously expecting good news soon from the George W. Bush administration that would clear the way for Cuba to participate in the first World Baseball Classic. Meanwhile, Fidel Castro suggested the United States doesn't want to play Cuba in the WBC. The U.S. Treasury Department last month denied MLB's application for Cuba to play its scheduled first-round games in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory. Later rounds are to be played on the U.S. mainland. The license is required under 45-year-old American sanctions against Cuba. The International Baseball Federation has said it will not sanction the tournament if Cuba isn't allowed to play.
    • The Boston Red Sox and reliever Julian Tavarez finalized a $6.7 million, two-year contract
    • Reliever Brendan Donnelly avoided arbitration with the Los Angeles Angels, agreeing to an $950,000, one-year contract.
    • The New York Mets and Japanese pitcher Yusaku Iriki agreed to a $750,000, one-year contract.
