1800sEdit

  • 1895 - Baseball officials discuss the possibility of reinstating the old pitcher's distance. They are dismayed by the explosion of offense, which resulted in "long drawn out and uninteresting contests…. Besides the brainy pitcher of former days would be given another chance to display his ability in the science of the game."

1960sEdit

  • 1960 - Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Jensen announces his retirement, only months after enjoying one of his best seasons hitting 28 home runs, 112 RBI, and a .277 average. Jensen’s fear of flying plays a part in his decision to leave the game. In 1961, Jensen will return to the Red Sox before retiring once again.
  • 1963 - Major League Baseball’s Rules Committee increases the size of the strike zone. The zone will stretch from the top of the batter’s shoulders to the bottom of the knees. The committee hopes the return to the 1950s strike zone will result in a decrease in runs scored.

1980sEdit

  • 1989 - The tougher balk rules initiated last season are rescinded and are replaced by the pre-1988 rules.
