1800sEdit

  • 1872 - Willie Keeler is born in Brooklyn, New York. A remarkable hitter, Keeler will hit over .300 16 times in 19 seasons, hit over .400 once, and will finish with a .341 batting average over his career, currently 14th in all time list. Keeler will be selected to the Hall of Fame in 1939 with 75.55% of the vote.

1900sEdit

1910s-1940sEdit

  • 1940 - The Boston Bees sell outfielder Debs Garms to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Garms will get only 358 at bats for Pittsburgh but, nevertheless, will lead the National League in hitting with a .355 average. Unlike the American League 400 at bats required to opt for the batting title, the NL rules state that a player must appear in at least a hundred games: Garms will play in 103. Ford Frick, NL president, will clarify this in September when it is clear that Garms will not reach the 400 at bats. Pirates teammate Virgil Davis will be the nominal runnerup at .326, but play just 99 games. Garms will drop to .264 in 1941 and he will be out of baseball a year later.

1950s-1960sEdit

  • 1956:
    • In an effort to keep the Giants in New York, Manhattan Borough President Hulan Jack makes plans for a new 110,000-seat stadium over the New York Central railroad tracks, on a 470,000-foot site stretching from 60th to 72nd streets on Manhattan's West Side. The estimated cost of $75M for the stadium eventually dooms the project and will be a major factor in Horace Stoneham's decision to move to San Francisco.
    • The New York Giants and Cleveland Indians cancel an exhibition game in Meridian, Mississippi, because of mass racial violence in neighboring Alabama.

1970sEdit

1980sEdit

1990sEdit

2000sEdit

  • 2001 - Rusty Greer signs a $21.8 million, three-year contract extension with the Texas Rangers. A .307 career hitting outfielder, Greer could make as much $36 million with incentives and options. Greer would only play in anoth 113 games before retiring due to injury in 2002.
