1900sEdit

1910sEdit

  • 1917 - After hearing that Gabby Street had caught a ball dropped off the Washington Monument in 1908, Brooklyn Dodgers manager Wilbert Robinson bragged that he could catch a ball dropped from an airplane at spring training, even though he was in his mid-50s and well above his playing weight. Robinson circled unsteadily under the descending spheroid. Instead, a grapefruit was secretly substituted and it exploded on impact with his glove. Once he felt the ooze, Robinson thought it was blood, and screamed that he was dying until he tasted the juice. He later conceded that he probably would have been killed if a real baseball had been dropped from the plane. Aviatrix Ruth Law dropped the grapefruit as outfielder Casey Stengel assumed culprit of the switch.

1920sEdit

1930sEdit

1940sEdit

  • 1943 - The major leagues approve a new official ball manufactured by Spalding Company for the upcoming season. Instead of the usual combination of cork and rubber, the inside of the ball is made up of recycled cork and balata, materials not needed in the war effort. Officials insist the ball will have the resiliency of the 1939 ball, but the players will express with dismay that they cannot drive the new ball and point out the dearth of runs and homers in 1942 even with the old ball.
  • 1944 - It's True, Cy Young's middle name is not Tucumseh, as generally accepted, but the middle initial T really stands for True.

1950sEdit

1960sEdit

  • 1960 - The Chicago White Sox unveil an important uniform innovation. The Sox’ road uniforms feature players’ names on the backs of the jerseys, marking the first time that players’ names will appear on major league uniforms. The innovation will make it easier for fans watching games on television to identify the players on the field. The idea is yet another creation of colorful White Sox owner and innovator Bill Veeck.

1970sEdit

1980sEdit

  • 1986 - The father-and-son team of Hal and Brian McRae appears together in an exhibition game for the Kansas City Royals. Brian, who will be sent back to the minor leagues before the start of the season, will not make his major league debut until 1990. The following summer, Brian will play for his father, who takes over as Royals manager.
