1880sEdit

  • 1898 - National League president Nick Young announces the more experienced umpire will stay behind the plate when the new two-umpire system is instituted. Previously, the single umpire would stand behind the pitcher only with men on base.

1900s-1940sEdit

  • 1918 - Veteran infielder Buck Herzog is traded by the New York Giants to the Boston Braves for second baseman Larry Doyle and pitcher Jesse Barnes. Barnes will go 6–1 this year and then win a league high 25 games in 1917. Doyle, a former Giants and fan favorite, was acquired from the Chicago Cubs four days ago and his trade was rumored. He will play three years in New York before retiring.

1950s-1970sEdit

  • 1968 - In Panama, José Lizandro of Marlboro pitches a 3–0 no-hitter against Novatos. It is the first no-hitter in Panama since 1948.

1980sEdit

1990sEdit

  • 1991 - For the first time since 1984, three players are inducted into the Hall of Fame: two 300-game winners, Gaylord Perry and Ferguson Jenkins, and a member of the 3,000-hit club, Rod Carew, who becomes the 22nd player to be named in his first year of eligibility. Ironically, none of the three players ever appeared in a World Series.
  • 1994 - The Colorado Silver Bullets, professional baseball’s first women’s team, holds its first public tryouts in Orlando, Florida. An invitation-only tryout was held in Orlando on December 18.
  • 1996 - For the first time in 25 years, no one garners 75 percent of the votes needed to be elected to the Hall of Fame. Phil Niekro comes closest with 68 percent.

For the first time in 25 years, and only the 7th time in history, the BBWAA fails to select a single player for induction into the Hall of Fame. Pitchers Phil Niekro and Don Sutton, who receive the highest number of votes, will win election to the Hall in 1997 and 1998, respectively.

2000sEdit

  • 2002 - Turning down a deal worth a million dollars more with no deferred money offered by the Mets, Juan González agrees to a $24 million, two-year deal with the Rangers that includes $10.5 million in deferred payments. The outfielder, who preferred to stay in the American League, established franchise records for home runs, RBI, total bases and extra base hits while playing for the Rangers from 1989-1999.
