1800sEdit

1900s-1930sEdit

  • 1917 - Pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander announces he is ready to retire from professional baseball and join a semipro team if his salary demands are not met. Alexander wants a three-year contract at $15,000 per year.
  • 1926 - The Major League Rules Committee agrees that pitchers may have access to a resin bag. On February 8 the American League will refuse to permit its use, but on April 28 the league will give in and allow a resin bag on the field, but discourage its use by players. The Committee also discusses the possible elimination of the intentional walk, a topic that has come up before, by making the pitcher throw to the batter. Calling a catcher balk has not eliminated the intentional walk as intended. No action is taken.
  • 1936 - The new owners of the Boston Braves conduct a survey of newspaper reporters, asking them to come up with a new nickname for the franchise. The reporters select the Bees, which will be used through the 1940 season. The new name fails to catch on, and the team decides to switch back to Braves.

1940s-1950sEdit

1960s-1970sEdit

  • 1978:
    • Former pitcher Addie Joss and former executive Larry MacPhail are voted into the Hall of Fame by the Special Veterans Committee.
    • Commissioner Bowie Kuhn cancels the recent trade that sent pitcher Vida Blue from the Oakland Athletics to the Cincinnati Reds for first baseman Dave Revering and $1.75 million in cash. Believing that the Athletics did not receive adequate compensation, Kuhn recommends that the trade be restructured. On February 25, Oakland will acquire Revering in a different trade, this time for pitcher Doug Bair. On March 15, the Athletics will once again trade Blue, this time to the San Francisco Giants for seven players and $400,000. None of the seven will have much impact, while Blue will win 18 games in 1978.

1980s-1990sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2003 - Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr. joins his father Cal Sr. by becoming the 40th member of the Orioles Hall of Fame. Ripken Jr. is elected in his first year of eligibility by a unanimous vote of the media covering the team. The formal ceremony will be take place on September 6, 2003 which marks the eighth anniversary of the night he broke the 56-year-old record of 2,130 consecutive games played set by Lou Gehrig.
