1900sEdit

1910sEdit

  • 1915 - At the Polo Grounds, Babe Ruth and the well-traveled Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees, 7–1. It was the last stop on a 29-day road trip for the Red Sox. Ruth allowed five hits and hit his second major league career home run, a three-run shot off Jack Warhop in the second inning. After his homer, Ruth received two intentional walks. He ended up kicking the bench and breaking his toe, sidelining him for two weeks.

1920sEdit

1930sEdit

  • 1937 - National League President Ford Frick suspended Dizzy Dean for refusing to retract statements made after a balk call in the May 19th game, which led to an on-field brawl. Dean forced a meeting with the press at which he denied the statements, and his suspension was lifted a few days later.

1940sEdit

  • 1941 - Lou Gehrig died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at the age of 37 in New York. From that time on, the illness was known primarily as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Gehrig had seen his major league record of 2,130 consecutive games end because of the disease. It was on this day exactly 16 years ago he broke into the Yankees starting line-up.

1950sEdit

  • 1959 - A swarm of gnats delayed the game between the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park. After a half-hour interruption, the Chicago grounds crew disposed of the gnats by using a smoke bomb attached to a postgame fireworks display. The Orioles eventually defeated the White Sox, 3–2.

1960sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2005 - The New York Yankees were swept by the team with the worst record in the majors (16-37), falling 5–2 to the Kansas City Royals for their first five-game losing streak in more than two years. Kansas City pitchers allowed just six runs in the series. It was the third time in their storied history the Yankees had been swept in three games by the team with the worst record in major league. The other times were in 2000, by the Detroit Tigers, and 1937 by the Philadelphia Athletics. The Royals had gone 78 series without sweeping anyone, the longest drought in the majors since the Phillies went 79 series without a sweep from 1996-97.
