1800sEdit

  • 1890 - Brooklyn is selected by the American Association as a new franchise. Syracuse, Rochester, and Toledo were selected earlier. However, the Brooklyn team will be transferred to Baltimore before the end of the season.

1900s-1910sEdit

  • 1903 - The defunct Baltimore franchise is purchased by Frank Farrell and Bill Devery for $18,000 and moved to Manhattan where they will become the New York Highlanders, which marked the genesis of the Yankees.
  • 1908 - The Detroit Tigers name Frank Navin president of the team. The Tigers’ home ballpark, Bennett Field, will be renamed Navin Field, which will later become Tiger Stadium.

1920s-1950sEdit

  • 1928 - The Giants sign Chinese-Hawaiian infielder William "Buck" Lai, to a major league contract. Lai had been signed by the Pirates in 1918 but never appeared in a game, and since then has played in the minors and for the semipro Brooklyn Bushwicks. Alas, he'll be on the Giants for a month but never appear in a game (as noted by Bob Timmerman).
  • 1952 - the U.S. Marines announce they will recall Boston Red Sox’ star Ted Williams into active duty to serve in the Korean War. Williams will play briefly during the 1952 season but will not return to the Red Sox lineup on a full-time basis until late in 1953. As a pilot in Korea, Williams will fly 39 missions and will survive a crash-landing brought about by enemy fire.

1960s-1970sEdit

  • 1971 - Hall of Fame outfielder Elmer Flick dies at the age of 94. Flick batted over .300 eight times and won a batting title in 1905. During a 13-year career, Flick stole 330 bases.
  • 1976 - Charles Ruppert, Giants vice president and son-in-law of Horace Stoneham, announces the sale of the team to a Toronto group for $13.3 million. Outrage by the fans prompts San Francisco mayor George Moscone to get a preliminary injunction preventing the move.

1980sEdit

1990sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2002:
    • Signing a $27 million deal with the Houston Astros, Billy Wagner becomes one of MLB highest-paid relief pitchers. Wagner will get $8 million in each of the next three seasons with a $9 million club option for 2005 with a $3 million buyout.
    • Post-season spark plug Craig Counsell signs a three-year, $7.25 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Cut by the Dodgers in 2000, the NLCS MVP played the infield in 141 games for the 2002 World Series champion Diamondbacks.
    • Congressman John Conyers, Jr. of Michigan says Bud Selig should resign because he appeared to violate major league rules in a 1995 loan from a company controlled by the owner of the Minnesota Twins. Conyers, The House Judiciary Committee's ranking Democrat says the loan created an "irreparable conflict of interest" for Selig in his plan to fold two franchises, a proposal that most likely would include the Twins." Selig rejects the suggestion saying, "The suggestions made in your letter are wholly unacceptable."
  • 2005 - Center fielder Carlos Beltrán becomes the tenth $100 million player in major league history as the 27-year old native of Puerto Rico agrees to seven-year deal for $119 million with the New York Mets. The five-tool player, who had his market value increase in the post season by helping the Houston Astros come within a win of their first World Series appearance in franchise history, goes to New York after Houston refuses to include a no-trade clause in their very attractive monetary offer to keep him on the club.
