1800sEdit

  • 1889 - After a formal meeting of reps from all NL chapters, the Brotherhood issues a "Manifesto" in which it claims that "players have been bought, sold and exchanged as though they were sheep instead of American citizens." This bold statement constitutes a declaration of war between the Brotherhood and major league officials which will soon explode.
  • 1899 - Representatives of seven cities meet in New York regarding the proposed new American Association. Attention focuses on what other city might become the eighth franchise.

1900s-1950sEdit

  • 1957 - With a new balk rule, the batter now has an option after the call is made. If a player gets a hit, he can accept the outcome of the pitch, instead of being only limited to the advance of the base runner(s).
  • 1959 - Ernie Banks wins his second NL MVP Award in a row on the strength of his 45 home runs and 143 RBI for the Chicago Cubs. Eddie Mathews finishes second.

1960-1970sEdit

1980sEdit

  • 1987 - San Diego Padres catcher Benito Santiago]], who ended the season with a rookie record 34-game hitting streak, is a unanimous selection as the NL Rookie of the Year.

1900sEdit

  • 1997 - Third baseman Scott Rolen is the unanimous choice for NL Rookie of the Year and becomes the first Philadelphia Phillies player to win the award since Dick Allen in 1964. Rolen led all NL rookies in batting average (.283), home runs (21), runs batted in (92), runs (93), hits (159), doubles (35), total bases (263), on-base percentage (.377) and slugging average (.469). He barely qualified as a rookie, logging exactly 130 at bats in 1996 before breaking his wrist on September 7 when he was hit by a pitch. One more at bat would disqualified him for the award in 1997.
