On July 21 in Baseball History...

1892 - In a match up of 300 game winners at Philadelphia Baseball Grounds, Phillies’ submariner Tim Keefe sinks Jim "Pud" Galvin and the Browns, 2-0. The next time two National League pitchers with 300 or more victories will face each other will occur in 2005 when Greg Maddux of the Cubs beats Astros ace Roger Clemens at Minute Maid Park, 3-2.

1921 - The Cleveland Indians and the New York Yankees combined for an American League record sixteen doubles as the Indians won 17-8. Cleveland had nine doubles and New York seven.

1930 - George Puccinelli and Jim Bottomley of the Cardinals and Dodgers Hal Lee and Harvey Henrick all homer appearing as pinch-hitters in one game.

1945 - At Philadelphia's Shibe Park, the A’s and Tigers play the second longest game in major league history. After 4 hours and 48 minutes, the 24 inning contest ends in a 1-1 tie with Les Mueller pitching 19 2/3 innings for Detroit.

1946 - Lew Flick sets a professional baseball record when he collects nine consecutive hits in a single game, before grounding out in his final at-bat in the 19-inning opener against Memphis. The Little Rock Travelers outfielder will get three more hits off the Chicks' pitching staff in the nightcap, finishing the day 12-for-13 in the Southern Association (AA) doubleheader.

1947 - Frankie Frisch (.316) becomes the first switch-hitter inducted into the Hall of Fame. The 'Fordham Flash' is joined by Carl Hubbell, Mickey Cochrane, and Lefty Grove as the newest members to be enshrined at Cooperstown.

1956 - In a 13-6 defeat to the Cubs, Dodgers' shortstop Pee Wee Reese becomes one of five active players to collect 2000 hits and teammate Junior Gilliam sets a major league record by handling 12 assists at second base.

1956 - Brooks Lawrence of the Cincinnati Reds had his 13-game winning streak broken as Roberto Clemente's three-run homer led the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-3 victory.

1959 - Under intense public pressure and the Massachusetts Committee Against Discrimination investigation, the Red Sox become the last club to integrate. Fourteen years after Boston passes on Jackie Robinson despite a successful tryout in 1945, Elijah 'Pumpsie' Green pinch runs and plays shortstop to become the first black to play for the team.

1961 - With back-to-back homers in the top of the first at Fenway Park, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris continue their assault on Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record. The game’s decisive hit, however, is a pinch-hit grand slam by Johnny Blanchard with two-out in the ninth-inning which propels the Bronx Bombers past the Red Sox‚ 11-8.

1962 - Craig Anderson throws a seven-hit, complete-game against Cincinnati, but New York cannot overcome Marv Throneberry's error which would have ended the fifth inning, giving Vada Pinson the opportunity to hit a two-out, two run homer. The eventual 5-3 defeat at Crosley Field makes the right-hander the third consecutive Mets' starter, following losing efforts by Jay Hook and Roger Craig, to pitch a complete game and not get a victory.

1963 - The usually mild-mannered Dodger manager Walter Alston is thrown out of both games of a doubleheader when the Braves sweep a twin bill from Los Angeles for the first and only time in Milwaukee, 7-2 and 13-7. To make matters worse, the manager has beer thrown in his face by a hometown fan as he leaves the second game. 

1963 - Pirates outfielder Jerry Lynch pinch-hits a three-run home run off Chicago's Lindy McDaniel in the ninth- inning to tie the Forbes Field contest at five, a game the Bucs will evenually win in 14 innings, 6-5. The heroic homer is the left-handed hitter's 14th career round-tripper off the bench, tying a major league mark established by former Cincinnati teammate, George Crowe.

1964 - Despite the four errors made by the Phillies, Rick Wise wins the first of his 188 major league victories when Philadelphia beats the Mets at Shea Stadium in the nightcap of a twin bill, 8-2. The 18-year old rookie right-hander's accomplishment will be overlooked when his effort follows Jim Bunning's perfect game in the opener.

1970 - San Diego's Clay Kirby held the New York Mets hitless for eight innings but was lifted for a pinch hitter by manager Preston Gomez. With the Padres trailing 1-0 with two out in the eighth, Gomez elected to go for the win instead of letting Kirby finish the game. The Padres lost the no-hitter and the game, 3-0.

1973 - Hank Aaron of Atlanta hit his 700th home run in the third inning of an 8-4 Braves loss to Philadelphia. Aaron connected on a 1-1 fastball off Phillies pitcher Ken Brett.

1975 - Mets' infielder Joe Torre becomes the first player in National League history to hit into four straight double plays in one game. Felix Millan singles in four consecutive at bats against the Astros making the dubious mark possible.

1982 - The Reds, 24 games below .500, fire manager John McNamara and replace him with third base coach, Russ Nixon. Cincinnati will only win 27 games of the 70 they play for their new manager, who will replace at the end of next season after another last place finish.

1988 - The Red Sox suspend Jim Rice for three days for shoving manager Joe Morgan. The Boston outfielder became upset when the skipper pinch hit for him using the light-hitting shortstop Spike Owen.

1988 - The Yankees trade Jay Buhner, minor league prospect Rich Balabon, and a player to be named later (Troy Evers) to the Mariners in exchange for 33 year-old Ken Phelps. The one-sided deal will be immortalized on Seinfield by Frank Costanza, George 's dad, when he laments the Bronx Bombers' poor judgment, "How could you have traded Buhner for Ken Phelps?".

1993 - Jose Uribe walks on a 3-2 count thanks to home umpire Harry Wendelstedt losing track of the pitches. The fifth-inning base-on-ball leads to a run when the Astros shortstop scores on Steve Finley's double in Houston's 5-3 victory over the Bucs at Three Rivers Stadium.

2000 - Thanks to Harold Baines' four hits, the Orioles halt its 20-game Canadian losing streak defeating the Blue Jays, 9-5. It is Baltimore's first victory north of the border since June 13, 1998.

2003 - At Dodger Stadium, Vladimir Guerrero hit his 226th career home run breaking Andre Dawson's club record. The Expos' right fielder hits his milestone round-tripper off Odalis Perez, a 454-foot blast over left field wall.

2004 -  Mark Buehrle faces the minimum 27 batters as the White Sox rout the Indians, 14-0. Throwing just ninety piches, the 25-year old southpaw allows only two hits with both runners being erased as result of a double play.

2004 - A third piece of concrete, which apparently fell from the park's upper deck, is discovered at Wrigley Field by a club employee. Two other chunks have also fallen recently in different sections in the 90-year-old stadium prompting Mayor Richard Daley to say he would not hesitate to close sections -- or all -- of the facility to protect fans from potential harm.

2004 - Thanks to an unusual play in the outfield, David Newhan hits a rare inside-the-park homer at Fenway. Inexplicably, Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez, from left field, cuts off the relay throw from center fielder Johnny Damon allowing two Orioles to score in Baltimore's 10-5 victory.

2005 - Hideki Matsui plays in his 395th consecutive game to start his career breaking Al Simmons's 1926 American League record. The Japanese outfielder will also surpass Ernie Banks' NL mark of 424 en route to establishing the new major league record of 518 consecutive contests.

2006 - Going deep in the third inning, 30-year old Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez collects his 2,000th career hit and at the same time becomes the youngest player to reach the 450 home run plateau. Later in the day, Padres catcher Mike Piazza also becomes a member of the 2000 hit club with a second inning double to left at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

2006 - In the opening game of a week-end series against Chicago, George Washington wins the first Presidents Race ever held at Nationals Park. Mascots Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln will also chalk up wins in the next two days, but Teddy Roosevelt's will not, thus beginning his infamous streak over more than 500 attempts before finally crossing the finish line first on the final day of the 2012 season.

2008 - Jose Reyes' fourth-inning three-bagger in the Mets' 7-5 victory over the Reds at Great American Ball Park makes him the franchise leader in triples. The speedy shortstop's 11th three-base hit this season, his sixty-third of his career, all as a Met, puts the 25-year old infielder one ahead Mookie Wilson.

2008 - Coming out of the bullpen in the eighth, Jimmy Gobble allows ten runs in two-thirds of an inning setting a franchise record for the most runs allowed by a Royals reliever in a game. The 26-year old southpaw, who will be placed on the 15-day disabled list the next day with a stiff lower back, gives up seven hits and walks four batters facing 13 Tigers.

2008 - Diamondback left-hander Randy Johnson becomes the first major leaguer to collect 2,000 strikeouts for two different teams. The Arizona southpaw, who fanned 2,162 batters pitching for the Mariners from 1989-98, whiffs Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez to earn the distinction.

2012 - At Cooperstown's Doubleday Field, Fox analyst Tim McCarver and Toronto Sun's Bob Elliott are honored by the Hall of Fame for their longtime contributions in covering baseball. The pair, respectively, receive the Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting and the J.G. Taylor Spink Award for sports writing.

2012 - The Houston Astros traded Brett Myers and cash to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for Blair Walters, Matthew Heidenreich and a player to be named later; Houston Astros received Chris Devenski (August 3, 2012).

2013 - In an on-field ceremony, former first baseman Carlos Delgado becomes the 10th member inducted on the Level of Excellence, an award bestowed by the Blue Jays in recognition of individual player's accomplishments for the team. Previous recipients of the prestigious award include Dave Stieb, George Bell, Joe Carter, Cito Gaston, Tony Fernandez, Pat Gillick, Tom Cheek, Roberto Alomar, and Paul Beeston.

On July 22 in Baseball History...

1905 - Weldon Henley of the Philadelphia Athletics pitched a no-hitter, defeating the St. Louis Browns 6-0 in the first game of a doubleheader. It was the highlight of Henley's 4-11 season.

1906 - Bob Ewing pitched the Cincinnati Reds to a 10-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies without a single assist registered by his teammates.

1909 - Ty Cobb steals three bases in one inning when the first-place Tigers beat the Red Sox, 6-0. The thievery takes place at Boston's Huntington Avenue Grounds.

1913 - In a game against the Superbas (Dodgers), Slim Sallee becomes the only pitcher in Cardinal history to steal home. In the third inning, the Redbird southpaw scores the first run in St Louis's 3-1 victory over Brooklyn at Ebbets Field.

1923 - At League Park, the Indians complete a 31-game home stand in which every American League team pays a visit. After a slow start, the Tribe finishes with a 16-15 record during their month at home.

1923 - Senators legend Walter Johnson fans Stan Coveleski to become the first pitcher in major league history to strike out 3,000 batters. The milestone will not be reached again until Bob Gibson accomplishes the feat in 1974.

1926 - Cincinnati had four triples in an 11-run second inning as the Reds beat the Boston Braves, 13-1. Curt Walker hit two in the inning to tie an National League record.

1935 - The Red Sox end a game for the second consecutive day with Wes Ferrell hitting a walk-off home run. As a pinch-hitter yesterday his round-tripper beat the Tigers, 7-6, and as today's starter his game-ending homer earns him a 2-1 victory against the Browns.

1941 - Dick Wakefield becomes baseball's first 'bonus baby' when he signs with the Tigers for $52,000 and a new car. The University of Michigan standout will get one hit in seven at-bats (.143) this season.

1954 - In an attempt to put more pop in the lineup, Yankee skipper Casey Stengel shifts Mickey Mantle to shortstop from center field in the top of the ninth inning. The move works when the 'Commerce Comet' hits a walk-off homer in the bottom of the tenth giving the Yankees a 4-3 victory over Chicago

1962 - During a twin bill with the Reds at Crosley Field, the Mets manage to have four runners thrown out trying to score at home plate. The new National League expansion team from New York loses both games, 11-4 and 4-3, en route to a record-setting 120 defeats this season.

1966 - Clay Dalrymple breaks up Giants hurler Gaylord Perry's no-hitter with an eighth inning single. It’s the second time the Phillies’ catcher has spoiled a no-hit bid in the eighth inning at Candlestick Park as he collected the only hit in Juan Marichal’s debut in 1960.

1967 - The Atlanta Braves used a Major League record five pitchers in the ninth inning of a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The pitchers were Ken Johnson, Ramon Hernandez, Claude Raymond, Dick Kelley and Cecil Upshaw.

1969 - For the first time since its inception in 1939, the All-star game is not played as scheduled. A torrential rain storm in the nation's capital causes a postponement of the 40th Midsummer Classic until the following day at RFK Stadium .

1973 - The Reds' shortstop Dave Concepcion will miss the rest of the season due to a broken ankle. The All-Star infielder hits .287 in the 89 games he plays for the eventual National League Western Division winners.

1983 - Angels' outfielder Brian Downing's American League record consecutive errorless streak ends at 244 games when he misplays Chet Lemon's line drive in a 13-11 loss to the Tigers.

1986 - Due to a series of maneuvers by Mets' manager Davey Johnson and the late-game ejections of Darryl Strawberry, Ray Knight, and Kevin Mitchell (the latter two as a result of a bench-clearing brawl precipitated by Knight when he decks pinch-runner Eric Davis at third base), the teams runs out of position players. The shortage of regulars leads to some interesting juggling by the New York skipper when catcher Gary Carter plays third base and a pair of relievers shift between the mound and a corner outfield position, with righty Roger McDowell playing left field when Jesse Orosco pitches to lefties and the southpaw hurler moving to right field when McDowell comes in from the outfield to face right-handed batters, with Mookie Wilson moving from corner to corner as needed.

1993 - Giving up four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning at Three Rivers Stadium, the Braves lose to the Pirates, 8-7, to fall ten games behind the division-leading Giants. In a remarkable turn-around, after the All-Star break Atlanta will post a 54-19 record finishing with 104 victories, and will win the National League West historic race on the last day of the season by a single game.

2000 - Seattle's 13-5 win over Texas was interrupted for fifty-four minutes when a rainstorm drenched fans at Safeco Field and the $518 million stadium's roof wouldn't close because of a computer problem. The roof finally began closing about twenty minutes later.

2002 - Although the Los Angeles Times has reported MLB players had tentatively set a strike date of September 16, union leader Donald Fehr, through a memo sent to players, indicates no such decision has been made. It would be baseball's ninth work stoppage since 1972.

2002 - Over 20,000 Red Sox fans gather at Fenway for a tribute entitled, "Ted Williams: A Celebration of an American Hero," The two hour salute of the man many consider to be the greatest hitter in baseball history, a vet of World War II and the Korean War and a generous supporter of the Jimmy Fund, in addition to moving music and video, includes comments from present and former Red Sox players and broadcasters, historian Ken Burns, and former U.S. Senator John Glenn, who was Ted's wing man during the Korean War.

2005 - Washington Nationals outfielder Jose Guillen, armed with a measuring tape and the help of a few teammates, checks the distance from home plate to the fences at Washington’s RFK Stadium and finds inaccuracies. The club had brought in a surveyor earlier in the day and as a result of the findings moved the green pads with the ``380'' markings closer to the respective foul lines to be more accurate.

2005 - Yhency Brazoban records his 18th save as he works a perfect ninth inning as the Dodgers beat the Mets, 6-5. The Los Angeles freshman, who is filling in for injured closer Eric Gagne, breaks Steve Howe’s club rookie record for saves established in 1980.

2007 - Tulsa Drillers’ first base coach Mike Coolbaugh is killed instantly when struck in the head by a line drive in the top of the ninth inning at Dickey-Stephens Field in North Little Rock, home of the minor league Arkansas Travelers. The 35-year old dad, who leaves behind a pregnant wife and two small sons, becomes the second on-the-field fatality in professional baseball history.

2007 - Devil Rays’ right-hander Shawn Camp yields nine hits in his in 1.1 innings of relief during the 21-4 rout by the Yankees. The 34 year-old Tampa Bay reliever allowed three home runs to the 13 batters he faces at the Bronx ballpark.

2010 - The Philadelphia Phillies signed Timo Perez as a free agent.

2012 - Barry Larkin, who spent his entire 19-year career with the Reds, is inducted into the Hall of Fame. The former 12-time All-Star shortstop, a lifetime a .295 hitter, won the Gold Glove Award three times and is a nine time Silver Slugger Award winner.

2012 - After hitting a first-inning triple in the Angels' 7-4 victory over Texas, Mike Trout comes home on a Albert Pujols' ground-rule double, setting a team and an American League rookie record by scoring a run in his 14th consecutive game. The 20-year-old left fielder surpasses the freshman mark shared by Jake Powell (1935, Senators) and Don Lenhardt (1950, Browns) and also eclipses the franchise record established by Jim Edmonds in 1995.

2012 - The A's, after tying the game with a run in the bottom of the ninth, complete their sweep of New York with a 5-4 walk-off victory in the 12th inning at The Coliseum. It marks the first time in Yankees history that the Bronx Bombers been swept in a four-game series while losing all four by one run.

2012 - Ron Santo, who died at the end of 2010 disappointed about not being selected for Cooperstown, is inducted posthumously into the Hall of Fame. In tribute of the team's former third baseman and beloved broadcaster, the Cubs click their heels as they jumped over the third-base line to begin the bottom of the first inning during their game in St. Louis, invoking the memory of the Chicago infielder's signature move after a victory.

2013 - The Rangers trade three prospects, third baseman Mike Olt, pitchers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, to the Cubs for Matt Garza, a player the team has attempted to land for the past two seasons. The deal also includes the Cubs receiving a player to be named later, most likely Neil Ramirez if his shoulder is sound, or two others minor-leaguers if the right-hander is still injured.

2014 - Chase Headley, obtained by the Yankees less than 12 hours ago, hits a single in the 14th inning, giving the Bombers a 2-1 walk-off victory over Texas in the Bronx. New York acquired their new third baseman earlier in the day when they traded minor league pitching prospect Rafael De Paula and infielder Yangervis Solarte to the Padres, with the team also receiving $1 million from San Diego to pay part of the $4 million still owed to the infielder this season.

2015 - Huston Street becomes the 27th pitcher in the major league to record 300 saves when he tosses a scoreless ninth inning in the Angels' 5-2 victory over the Twins in Anaheim. The 31 year-old right-handed closer is the second youngest player, only behind Francisco Rodriguez, to reach the milestone.

On July 23 in Baseball History...

1890 - Harry Stovey of Boston's Players League club becomes the first Major League player to reach 100 career home runs.

1925 - Lou Gehrig's four-run home run is the difference in the Yankees' 11-7 victory over the Senators. The New York first baseman's bases-full homer is the first of a record 23 grand slams he will hit during his 17-year career in the Bronx.

1925 - In a Class C Western Association minor league game against the Topeka Jayhawks, Paul Richards of the Muskogee Chiefs is summoned from his shortstop position to pitch. The future major league player and manager throws with both hands during his brief appearance on the mound, including an unusual confrontation with a switch-hitter, that briefly results in both the pitcher and the batter continually swapping hands and batter's boxes respectively, until the ambidextrous hurler becomes a left-hander and right-hander on alternate pitches, regardless of where the batter places himself.

1930 - Pirates third baseman Pie Traynor hits game-winning homers in both ends of a doubleheader. The future Hall Famer's ninth inning home run wins the opener and he ends the nightcap when he connects in the 13th.

1939 - Using yellow dyed balls, the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 5-2 at Sportsman's Park. The experimenting with use of the color sphere, which is designed to make the ball easier to see for the players and the fans, started in Brooklyn last week and will be tested once more, in a September game played at Wrigley Field.

1939 - In a 16-3 Tigers rout at Briggs Stadium, A's catcher Harry O'Neill appears in his only major league game. In 1945, the 22-year old backstop will die in combat on Iwo Jima becoming one of only two big leaguers to be killed in World War II.

1944 - In the eighth inning of the second game of a doubleheader with the bases loaded, Giants manager Mel Ott orders for Bill Nicholson, who has hit four home runs in the twin bill, to be intentionally walked with the bases loaded by his pitcher Andy Hansen. The free pass to 'Swish' doesn't work when the Cubs score three runs to tie the game.

1956 - Joe Cronin and Hank Greenberg are officially inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, New York.

1960 - During an 8-3 loss to the Senators, A's outfielder Whitey Herzog hits into a triple play as his line drive is snagged on the mound by Pedro Ramos‚ who tosses it to first baseman Julio Becquer to double up the runner‚ and the third out of the play is made by relaying the ball to shortstop Jose Valdivielso getting the runner at second base. It is the first all Cuban triple play in major league history.

1960 - Jimmy Piersall is ejected for the sixth time this season after ignoring the home plate umpire's warning to stop running around the outfield with his arms raised during Ted Williams’ plate appearance. The Indians’ center fielder, who charges the umpire after being tossed from the game and has to be restrained by teammates, was guilty of trying to distract the batter from the field which is forbidden by the rule book.

1962 - Jackie Robinson becomes the first black player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Joining the Dodger infielder in the Cooperstown ceremony are fireballer Bob Feller, veteran manager Bill McKechnie, and outfielder Edd Roush.

1964 - Kansas City's Bert Campaneris homers off Twins' Jim Kaat on the first major league pitch he ever sees. The A's rookie shortstop homers again in the seventh knotting the score with a two-run round-tripper in the team's eventual 4-3 victory in 11 innings at Metropolitan Stadium. The 21-year-old Cuban and Bob Nieman are the only players since 1900 with two home runs in their first Major League game.

1965 - In a 5-1 win over the Mets, Phillies' first baseman Dick Stuart homers at Shea Stadium becoming the first player to have gone deep in 23 major league ballparks.

1969 - At Washington's RFK Stadium, the National League scores early and often to coast to an easy 9-3 victory over the AL in the 40th All-Star game. Cardinals' right-hander Steve Carlton, the starting and winning pitcher, hits a double in the third inning off Blue Moon Odom to become the last hurler to get an extra-base hit in a Mid-Summer Classic contest.

1974 - At Three Rivers Stadium, Dodger first baseman Steve Garvey, a write-in All-Star starter, singles and doubles to help the National League beat the Junior circuit, 7-2. Mike Schmidt, also a write-in, plays in his first Midsummer Classic thanks to radio intern Howard Eskin's on-air campaign which urged Phillies fans to stuff the ballot box for their young third baseman.

1974 - In a surprise statement released after the All-Star game played in Pittsburgh, Hank Aaron, who had indicated on many occasions that he had no interest in the position, let it be known he would accept a Braves' offer to manage the team "simply because there are no blacks managers in baseball." The superstar's comments create an awkward situation the next day when Atlanta announces it has hired Clyde King to replace Eddie Mathews, who was fired three days ago.

1975 - At Three Rivers Stadium, Frank Taveras is picked off first base in an unusual play. After getting a big lead, to get a good jump on a sac bunt, the Pirates shortstop is picked off when the catcher throws the ball to first base with the Phillies right fielder Jay Johnstone covering the base to complete the 2-9 play.

1976 - Tying an American League record, Orioles outfielder Reggie Jackson hits a home run in six consecutive games. The round tripper does not help when the Birds bow to the Brewers in Baltimore, 4-3.

1976 - Joining Babe Ruth and Henry Aaron, Sadaharu Oh becomes the third professional to hit 700 home runs. The 33-year old Yomiuri Giants' slugger, who will finish his career with his 868 career homers, is the first player to accomplish the feat in Japan.

1978 - The Yankees win their fifth straight, 3-1, over the White Sox. At the Chicago airport, Billy Martin, reacting to reporters' questions about Reggie Jackson and George Steinbrenner, replies, "The two deserve each other. One's a born liar; the other's convicted." The remarks will cost Billy his job.

1985 - Oddibe McDowell becomes the first Ranger player to hit for the cycle. His seventh inning home run completes the unique event, but the center fielder adds another round tripper in the following frame when Texas beats the Indians at Arlington Stadium, 8-4.

1991 - Rob Dibble, just back from a three-game suspension, is ejected for throwing at - and hitting - Cubs baserunner Doug Dascenzo in an 8-5 Reds loss.

2000 - Joining his grandfather and his father, Reds' third baseman Mike Bell becomes part of the first three-generation family to play for the same team. Gus played for Cincinnati from 1953 to 1961 and his son spent the 1987-88 seasons in the Queen City.

2000 - The Astros hit four homers in one inning off Cardinal hurler Andy Benes tying the major league record for round-trippers allowed by one pitcher in a single frame. The second inning uprising helps Houston set a team record for homers in one inning and ties a team record with six big flies for the game.

2000 - After rejecting a trade to the Mets, Reds' All-Star shortstop Barry Larkin agrees to a three-year, $27 million contract extension that will keep him Cincinnati until 2003.

2000 - The Big Red Machine rolls into Cooperstown delivering first baseman Tony Perez, manager Sparky Anderson and Reds announcer Marty Brennaman into the Baseball Hall of Fame along with 1975 Red Sox World Series rival Carlton Fisk. Also enshrined are 19th century Cincinnati second baseman Bid McPhee and Negro League star 'Turkey' Stearnes.

2002 - Celebrating his 29th birthday by hitting three homers in Boston's 22-4 rout of the Devil Rays, Nomar Garciaparra ties the major league record becoming the 26th player to hit five home runs in two games. It was the Red Sox shortstop's second three-homer game, having accomplished the feat against the Mariners on May 10, 1999.

2002 - Nomar Garciaparra establishes the record for consecutive home runs in the shortest time in terms of innings. In a 22-4 rout of the Devil Rays at Fenway Park, the Red Sox shortstop homers three times in two frames - two two-run homers in the second and a grand slam in the third.

2005 - At SBC Park, uniform number 36 is added to the second deck of the left field bleachers joining nine others as the Giants honor Gaylord Perry. The Hall of Famer, who won 134 of his 314 career victories with San Francisco, remembers his 37-year old son, Jack, who died last month of complications from leukemia.

2006 - In a 3-1 victory over the Indians at Jacobs Field, Francisco Liriano and four Twins relievers establish a club record with 17 strikeouts in a nine inning game. The Minnesota starter reached double-digit whiffs (10) for the third time this season with Pat Neshek, Dennys Reyes, Juan Rincon and Joe Nathan adding seven more punch outs over the last four innings.

2006 - Adrián Beltré hits the first inside-the-park home run in the eight-year history of Safeco Field. The eighth-inning blast to centerfield comes off Mike Timlin in the Mariners' 9-8 victory over Boston.

2008 - In a slugfest at Angel Stadium, Los Angeles collects a season-high 19 hits beating the Indians, 14-11. The hit parade is lead by Howie Kendrick (4), Jeff Mathis (4), and Casey Kotchman (5) making it the first time in franchise history three different players have had four or more hits in the same game.

2009 - Thanks to a spectacular grab of Gabe Kapler's bid for a leadoff home run in the ninth inning by defensive replacement DeWayne Wise, Mark Buehrle tosses the 18th perfect game in major league history, a 5-0 gem over the Rays at U.S. Cellular Field. The 30-year-old southpaw, who received a congratulatory call from President Obama, a big White Sox fan, becomes the second pitcher in franchise history to throw two hitless game for the team, matching Frank Smith's accomplishment when the right-hander did it against the 1905 Tigers and the 1908 A's.

2010 - With a bases-empty homer in the first, a ground-rule double in the fifth, a two-run triple in the sixth, and a single in the eighth inning of the Diamondbacks' 7-4 loss to San Francisco at Chase Field, Kelly Johnson becomes the fourth player in franchise history to complete a cycle. The Arizona second baseman joins Luis Gonzalez (2000), Greg Colbrunn (2002), and Stephen Drew (2008) to accomplish the feat with the D-Backs.

2011 - For the first time in the 50-year history of the franchise, the Mets compile a 50-50 won-loss record after playing one hundred games. New York achieves the dubious distinction when they lose in Florida, 8-5.

2011 - The Mariners tie the 1992 franchise record for consecutive defeats by losing to the Red Sox at Fenway Park, 3-1. Seattle's 14th straight loss results in Boston's skipper Terry Francona's 1,000th win as a major league manager.

2013 - Wearing their home whites and batting in the bottom of the innings, the Reds drop a 5-3 decision to the Giants in the second game of twin bill at San Francisco's AT&T Park, the make-up game of a washout of a July Fourth contest that could not be rescheduled to be played Cincinnati. The Reds would have been the first team in major league history to produce a walkoff win on the road had they come back from their two-run deficit in the bottom of the ninth.

2014 - The Texas Rangers traded Joakim Soria to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel.

Today In White Sox History - July 23rd

July 23, 2009- White Sox Mark Buehrle became the 18th pitcher to ever throw a perfect game when he shut down the Tampa Rays 5 – 0 at U.S. Cellular Field. Buehrle was helped in the top of the 9th inning when Dewayne Wise, who had just entered the game for defensive purposes, made the catch of his career, leaping above the wall in left center to snare a ball hit by Gabe Kapler. On the way down he started to lose the ball then grabbed it out of the air with his bare hand. Buehrle completed the task in 2:03, the exact same amount of time as his no hitter in 2007. He became only the 4th pitcher in MLB history to ever throw a perfect game and a no hitter joining Cy Young, Sandy Koufax and Randy Johnson in this elite company.

On July 24 in Baseball History...

1882 - Chicago sets a National League record for runs by beating Cleveland 35-4. Seven Chicago players get four or more hits, and six score four or more runs. The record will last until June 29, 1897, when Chicago will pile up thirty-six runs against Louisville.

1909 - At Washington Park, the Superbas sweep a twin bill from the visiting Cardinals with identical 1-0 scores. Brooklyn’s southpaw Nap Rucker, who will finish second in the NL with 200 strikeouts, whiffs out 16 Redbirds in one of the contests.

1911 - At the Palace of the Fans in Cincinnati, the Giants establish a club mark hitting four triples in one game.  The plethora of three-baggers, including two legged out by Hall of Fame hurler Rube Marquard as well as one each from Larry Doyle and Chief Meyers, and nine other hits enable New York to beat the Reds, 8-3.

1926 - For the second time this season, Lou Gehrig swipes home on the front end of a double steal with Babe Ruth as the trailing runner. The Yankee first baseman will steal 102 bases during his career with 15 of the thefts being of home plate.

1931 - For the second time in ten days, Babe Herman hits for the cycle. The Dodger outfielder joins "Long John" Reilly and Bob Meusel as one of only three 'tricyclists' to have accomplished the feat of collecting a single, double, triple, and home run in one game three times.

1933 - After leading the team to the National League pennant in 1930 and 1931, skipper Gabby Street is fired mid-season by the Cardinals. Frank Frisch, the Redbirds second baseman, is named as player-manager of the fifth-place club.

1948 - During a Northern League road trip, five teammates of the Duluth minor league club are killed and 19 others are hurt in a bus-truck crash near St. Paul. The injured include future major league manager Mel McGaha and Elmer Schoendienst, brother of Cardinals’ infielder, Red.

1948 - Six days after hitting four homers in one game, White Sox outfielder Pat Seerey again makes the record book becoming the first major leaguer to strike out seven times in a doubleheader.

1949 - In the opener of a twin bill at Griffith Stadium, Indians’ hurler Bob Lemon helps his cause by hitting two home runs in a 7-5 victory over the Senators. Cleveland completes the sweep when Gene Beardon gets the victory in the Tribe's 5-2 win in the nightcap.

1951 - At cavernous Forbes Field, Giants' outfielder Willie Mays, unable to reach across his body to make a catch with his glove of Rocky Nelson's sinking 457-foot blast to deep center, sticks out his bare right hand and grabs the ball on a full gallop to make the incredible final out of the inning. Venerable Branch Rickey, Pittsburgh's general manager, sends a note to the New York dugout during the game to tell the 20-year rookie, "That was the finest catch I have ever seen, and the finest I ever expect to see".

1956 - Under cloudy skies, former first baseman/outfielder Hank Greenberg and infielder Joe Cronin, currently serving as general managers for the Tigers and Red Sox respectively, are inducted into the Hall of Fame as more than 8,500 fans witness the impressive ceremony. The former Detroit slugger becomes the first Jewish player to be enshrined in Cooperstown.

1961 - In a mid-season exhibition match at Yankee Stadium, the San Francisco Giants beat their former cross-town rivals, 4-1. Mickey Mantle’s homer accounts for the only Bronx Bombers run and Willie Mays has two RBIs for the visiting ‘Jints’.

1962 - With the score tied 4-4, Cookie Lavagetto, filling in for manager Casey Stengel, who is attending his brother’s funeral, brings in Bob G. Miller, not to be confused with Bob L. Miller also on the team, to face Braves backstop Del Crandall to start the bottom of the 12th inning. The first and only ball the southpaw reliever, convinced by the struggling team to come out of retirement because he needed only 18 more days of major league service to qualify for the players' pension plan, throws is hit over the left field wall at County Stadium resulting in one pitch, one hit, one run, and one loss.

1968 - In a 2-1 loss to the A's, White Sox hurler Hoyt Wilhelm breaks Cy Young's record as he makes his 907th career appearance. The knuckleballer will retire in 1972 after pitching in 1,070 games.

1970 - At Shea Stadium, Tommy Agee steals home with two outs in the bottom of the tenth inning giving New York a 2-1 walk-off victory over the Dodgers. After reaching on a fielder's choice, the Mets center fielder stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch, before scoring the winning run with his swipe of the plate.

1973 - Although not selected, Willie Mays appears in his last All-Star game thanks to Commissioner Bowie Kuhn increasing the player limit so the 'Say Hey Kid' could participate in the Midsummer Classic. Bobby Bonds, a Giants teammate of Mays, homers and doubles in the National League's 7-1 victory over the AL at Royals Stadium in Kansas City.

1974 - Whitey Lockman becomes the team’s director of player development, and will be replaced as the Cubs manager by third base coach Jim Marshall. During his three-year stint in the dugout, the Lowell, North Carolina native compiled a 157-162 (.492) record.

1977 - Seattle's John Montague pitches 6 1/3 innings of perfect relief against California, giving him thirty-three consecutive batsmen retired over two games to tie the American League record.

1977 - After his two-out foul pop-up is dropped by Mets' right fielder Bruce Boisclair, Davey Lopes responds with game-ending three-run home run off Bob Apodaca. The L.A. second baseman's ninth inning dramatics provide the Dodgers with a 5-3 win, and spoils the opportunity for a victory for Nino Espinosa, who left the game needing just one more out for a complete-game victory.

1978 - Pete Rose singles twice during the Reds' 5-3 win over the Mets, extending his hitting streak to thirty-seven games to tie the modern Major League record held by Tommy Holmes. Mets pitcher Pat Zachry, after allowing Rose's first hit, kicks the dugout steps in anger, breaking his foot and ending his season.

1978 - Billy Martin resigns as Yankee manager and is replaced by Bob Lemon. The Bronx Bombers will win a World Championship with their new skipper this season.

1979 - Going deep off A's hurler Mike Morgan at Fenway Park, Red Sox first baseman Carl Yastrzemski becomes the 18th major leaguer and seventh in the American League to hit 400 home runs. 'Captain Carl' will end his 23-year career with 452 homers.

1983 - In the memorable Pine Tar Game at Yankee Stadium, George Brett hits an apparent 2-run home run off Rich Gossage to give the Royals a 5-4 lead with two outs in the ninth inning. But Yankees manager Billy Martin points out that the pine tar on Brett's bat handle exceeds the seventeen inches allowed in the rules. As a result, Brett is called out for illegally batting the ball, giving New York a 4-3 victory. The Royals immediately protest, and American League President Lee MacPhail overrules his umpires for the first time saying that, while the rules should certainly be rewritten and clarified, the home run will stand and the game will be resumed from that point on August 18.

1993 - In a 5-4 loss to the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine, Mets right-hander Anthony Young extends his record losing streak to 27 games. The latest defeat is the result of the hard-luck hurler walking Dave Hansen in with the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning.

1993 - Mets outfielder Vince Coleman throws an explosive device - the equivalent of a quarter stick of dynamite - at fans after a game at Dodger Stadium. Amanda Santos, 2, suffers injuries to her cheek, finger and eye, and two others complain of injuries as well. Prosecutors decide to charge Coleman with a felony rather than a misdemeanor because of the explosive's strength and the amount of damage. The Mets later announce the high-priced Coleman will never again play for the team; he doesn't.

1999 - The Yankees rout the Indians 21-1 for their team’s largest margin of victory in 46 years. The Bronx Bombers' designated hitter Chili Davis goes 5-for-6 along with six RBIs in the late Saturday afternoon contest played at the ballpark in the Bronx.

1999 - The Red Sox blast seven home runs‚ one shy of the club record, in an 11-4 rout of Detroit at Tiger Stadium. Boston right fielder Trot Nixon contributes to the offensive onslaught with three home runs and five RBIs.

2000 - Ivan Rodriguez (.347, 27, 83) breaks his thumb when it is struck by Mo Vaughn's bat swinging on a third strike as the American League MVP attempts to throw out a runner stealing second base. The Texas Rangers' all-star catcher will miss the rest of the season.

2004 - Another saga is added to the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry after Red Sox starter Bronson Arroyo hits Alex Rodriguez, last night’s hero with a game-winning homer, with a pitch. As A-Rod stares out at the mound on his way to first, Boston’s catcher Jason Varitek, after a verbal exchange, pushes his glove into the All-star third baseman's face initiating a bench-clearing brawl between the divisional foes.

2004 - During the third inning at Warner Park, the approximately 5000 fans attending the minor league contest between the Wisconsin Woodchucks and the home town Madison Mallards set an American record for most people brushing their teeth at the same time. Next season, in another Northern League promotion, Winnipeg sets the Canadian record for the most fans simultaneous tooth brushing in a game against Calgary.

2006 - The Kansas City Royals traded Mike MacDougal to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for Tyler Lumsden and Dan Cortes.

2007 - At a press conference, an emotional Craig Biggio announces he will retire after this season bringing his 20-year career as the longest tenured player in Astro history to an end. The newest member of the 3,000 hit club, the only player in All-Star history to appear in the game as a catcher and a second baseman, played a major role in Houston’s four division titles and the team's only National League pennant.

2009 - The Phillies trade outfielder Mark Whiten to the Red Sox for first baseman Dave Hollins, who will play only five games for Boston. 'Hard Hittin' Mike Whiten will hit .254 appearing in 120 contests over two seasons for the 'Fightin' Phils'.

2009 - On the day he is traded by the A’s to the Cardinals for prospects Brett Wallace, Clayton Mortensen, and Shane Peterson, Matt Holliday collects four hits, drives in a run, and steals a base in his debut with St. Louis. Having hurried from New York, where his former team was continuing a series with the Yankees, the outfielder had to borrow a glove and shoes from his new teammates prior to the Redbirds’ 8-1 victory at Citizens Bank Park.

2010 - After 18 consecutive losses in Cleveland, the Rays finally beat the hometown Indians for the the first time in nearly five years. With the 6-3 victory over the Tribe, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon snaps an 0-21 personal losing streak as the visiting manager that began when he was California’s interim skipper in 1996.

2011 - Former Blue Jays, Orioles, Mariners and Phillies general manager Pat Gillick, life-time .300 hitter Roberto Alomar, and Burt Blyleven, ninth on the all-time list with 60 shutouts, are inducted into the Hall of Fame. Gillick won two World Series rings (1992-93) in Toronto with Alomar as his second baseman, and Blyleven helped the Twins win the 1987 Fall Classic as well as playing for the Pirates team that won it all in 1979.

2011 - Losing 12-8 in Boston, the Mariners establish a new team-worst losing streak with their 15th straight defeat. The Fenway contest features a milestone for BoSox starter Tim Wakefield when catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia holds on to Mike Carp's foul tip to end the sixth inning for the knuckleballer's 2,000th strikeout, a mark accomplished only once previously in franchise history by Roger Clemens.

2012 - The Boston Red Sox traded Brent Lillibridge to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Jose de la Torre.

2012 - Jordany Valdespin sets a new Mets single-season record when he hits his fifth pinch-hit home run of the season in the team's 5-2 loss to Washington at Citi Field. The 24 year-old's accomplishment also ties Cliff Johnson (Astros, 1974) for the second-highest single-season total ever recorded by a rookie, trailing only Craig Wilson, who was a freshman with the Pirates in 2001 when he tied Dave Hansen’s major-league mark for pinch-homers with seven.

2014 - While singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame ” during the seventh-inning stretch, Andy Milovich, the 45 year-old vice president and general manager of the Class-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans, is given a prostate exam in the Field press box. The first 1,000 men attending the Carolina League contest against the Winston-Salem Dash received a promotional foam rubber finger.

On July 25 in Baseball History...

1890 - In his last minor league appearance, 23-year old Cy Young strikes out 18 batters en route to a tossing no-hitter in a Tri-State contest against McKeesport (PA). The right-hander will amass a record 511 victories during his 22-year Hall of Fame career.

1930 - At Cleveland’s League Park, the A’s pull off two triple steals in one game. The double-triple takes place the first inning and then again in the fourth as Philadelphia, who pummels the Indians, 14-1, will steal only a total of 48 bases this season, lowest in the league with exception of the Red Sox.

1939 - New York freshman Atley Donald sets the American League rookie record for consecutive wins. ‘Swampy’ goes the the distance in the Yankee Stadium contest limiting the Browns to five hits for his twelfth straight victory, 5-1.

1941 - Forty-one-year-old Lefty Grove wins his 300th game as the Boston Red Sox defeat the Cleveland Indians 10-6 before a Fenway Ladies Day crowd of 16,000. Though he will make six more starts, this will be Grove's last career win.

1955 - Joe DiMaggio, who retired after 13 seasons with the Yankees with a .325 batting average, is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The 'Greatest Living Ballplayer', a title officially bestowed on 'Joltin' Joe' in 1969 by MLB, is elected by the writers in his fourth year on the ballot.

1956 - At Forbes Field, Roberto Clemente's inside-the-park walk-off grand slam off Jim Bronson gives the Pirates a dramatic come-from-behind 9-8 victory over the Cubs. Chicago, scoring seven runs in the eighth and another in the ninth, had rallied from a four-run deficit to take the lead late into the game.

1956 - Brooklyn right fielder Carl Furillo is the first Dodger player to homer in Jersey City, as the Dodgers lose to the Reds, 2-1.

1959 - Fidel Castro supporters bring a halt to the International League contest between the Rochester Red Wings and Havana Sugar Kings with random gunshots from the grandstand. Red Wings third base coach Frank Verdi and Havana shortstop Leo Cardenas both suffer minor flesh wounds. The team is pulled from the field and Havana cancels the rest of the homestand, eventually relocating the franchise in Newark for the 1960 season.

1961 - Roger Maris hits four home runs, tying the American League record for a doubleheader (at least one in each game), as New York beats Chicago, 5-1, and 12-0. Mickey Mantle also homers off Frank Baumann in the first game. He ends the day with thirty-eight home runs to forty for Maris.

1962 - At Sportsman's Park, Stan Musial surpasses Giants' legend Mel Ott as the National League’s all-time RBI leader. ‘Stan the Man’s’ two-run home run off Don Drysdale in a 5-2 loss to the Dodgers gives the Cardinals’ right fielder 1,862 career runs batted in with the Redbirds.

1966 - Red Sox great Ted Williams is inducted into the Hall of Fame. In his induction speech the 'Spendid Splinter' makes a strong appeal for the inclusion of Negro League stars at Cooperstown.

1967 - Race riots in Detroit force postponement of a Tigers-Orioles game. The games scheduled for the June 26-27 are shifted to Baltimore.

1972 - Cubs general manager John Holland announces Whitey Lockman will manage the Cubs, replacing Leo Durocher, who 'stepped down' as the team’s skipper. Durocher will be hired by the Astros to replace Harry Walker at the end of next month.

1972 - At Atlanta Stadium, Reds second baseman Joe Morgan's single scores Nate Colbert of the Padres in the bottom of the tenth inning to give the National League a 4-3 walk-off All-Star game victory over the Junior Circuit. The NL has won all seven of the extra-inning Mid-Summer Classics contests.

1974 - In his managerial debut with the club, Clyde King guides the Braves to a 1-0 extra-inning victory over San Diego. The former Giant skipper, who replaced the recently dismissed Eddie Matthews, will finish the season with a 38-25 record, but will be fired in August next year with his club mired in fifth place in the NL West.

1974 - In the second game of a Cleveland Stadium twi-night doubleheader, Buddy Bell launches a ninth-inning two-run home run to tie the score at 3 enabling the Indians to beat Baltimore in 13 innings, 5-4. With their 8-7 victory in the opener, the Tribe ends the day a half game out of first place in the tight four-team race in the American League East.

1977 - Pete Rose becomes the all-time hit leader among switch-hitters when he collects his 2,881st career hit, a fourth inning single off Pete Falcone in the Reds' 9-8 loss to St. Louis at Busch Stadium. Frankie Frisch, an infielder dubbed the Fordham Flash, had established the record nearly a half century ago playing with Giants and the Cardinals.

1978 - Pete Rose’s third inning Shea Stadium single to left off Mets righty Craig Swan establishes a National League record for hits in consecutive games. The Reds infielder has hit safely in 38 games breaking Tommy Holmes’ mark set as a member of the Boston Braves in 1945.

1978 - In a 3-2 Giants victory over the Cardinals at Candlestick Park, Jack Clark establishes a franchise record hitting safely in 26 straight games. The San Francisco right-fielder's fourth inning double off Bob Forsch keeps his consecutive games hitting streak intact.

1980 - Mike Schmidt becomes the all-time Phillies’ home run leader passing Del Ennis as he hits his 261st round tripper.

1988 - The Cubs test their $5 million lighting system prior to their historic first night game at Wrigley Field scheduled for August 8th against the Phillies. Six banks of lights on 33-foot steel towers along the first-base and third-base baselines illuminate the field during the charity event in which players take batting practice and participate in a home run derby.

1990 - After having a commanding 9-0 lead and still ahead 10-3 entering the bottom of the ninth inning, the Mets barely hold on to beat the Phillies at the Vet, 10-9. The nail biter causes the usually even mannered Bob Murphy to use a mild obscenity in his call of the final out, "they win the damn thing by a score of 10 to 9!".

1990 - Following his first-inning single, a triple in the third, and a fifth frame two-bagger, George Brett hits a lead-off homer in the seventh to complete the cycle in the Royals' 6-1 victory over Toronto at the Sky Dome. The Kansas City third baseman, who will retire with a lifetime .305 batting average, also accomplished the rare feat against Baltimore in 1979.

1990 - Between games of a twin bill against Cincinnati on "Working Women's Night" at Jack Murphy Stadium, Roseanne Barr, the star of the hit television show whose executive producer is new Padres' owner Tom Werner, sings an irreverent rendition of the The Star-Spangled Banner that will be widely criticized, including remarks by President George H. W. Bush, who calls her performance "disgraceful." The comedian, known for her biting sarcasm, spits and grabs her crotch as if adjusting a protective cup after singing the National Anthem in a loud and off-tune screechy manner.

1995 - In the top of the fourth inning, Dante Bichette puts the Rockies ahead, 6-4, with a three-run home run off Jim Deshaies at Philadephia's Veterans Stadium. The round-tripper is the 18th of the season for the 31-year old outfielder, but only his first on the road.

1996 - Rockies right-hander Bruce Ruffin strikes out four batters in one inning, a feat accomplished only 25 times in major league history. The opportunity for the rare occurrence happens when Cubs’ catcher Scott Servais strikes out swinging, but reaches first base safely after whiffing on the wild pitch.

1998 - Baltimore's ageless wonder Jesse Orosco pitches in his 1,000th career game.

1998 - Rockies lead-off batter Neifi Perez becomes the third player in team history to hit for the cycle. In a 5-2 victory over the Cardinals at Coors Field, the Colorado shortstop goes deep in the seventh inning off Matt Morris to complete the accomplishment.

1998 - The Yankees dedicate a plaque in the memory of Mel Allen, who died of heart failure at the age of 83 in 1996. The Monument Park tablet calls their longtime play-by-play announcer "A Yankee institution, a national treasure" and includes his signature line, "How about that?"

1998 - After receiving an invitation from the team to participate in Old-Timers' Day, Jim Bouton returns to Yankee Stadium for the first time in nearly thirty years. The former Bronx Bomber right-hander's banishment, believed to be the result of having written his controversial book, Ball Four, comes to an end when his son Michael writes an open letter to the New York Times that was printed on Father's Day urging the franchise to reconsidered their decision about his dad, who is still grieving about the loss of his daughter Laurie in an auto accident last August.

1999 - Nolan Ryan, Robin Yount, George Brett, Nestor Chylak, Orlando Cepeda, Frank Selee and 'Smokey' Joe Williams are enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

2004 - Paul Molitor, a member of the 3,000 hit club, and Dennis Eckersley, who appeared in the most games of any Hall of Fame pitcher (1,071 games) are inducted into the Hall of Fame. Long time Bay Area (A's and Giants) broadcaster Lon Simmons wins the Ford C. Frick Award and the J.G. Taylor Spink Award is won by New York Times' Murray Chass enabling both to become members of the Hall for their outstanding reporting of the national pastime.

2004 - Carlos Delgado's three-run homer in the Blue Jays' 5-3 victory over the Devil Rays makes the slugger the first Toronto player to drive in 1,000 runs in franchise history.

2008 - The Chicago White Sox released Esteban Loaiza.

2010 - The Angels acquire right-hander Dan Haren from the last-place Diamondbacks in exchange for southpaws Joe Saunders and Patrick Corbin, RHP Rafael Rodriguez and a player to be named. The addition of the three-time All-Star strengthens an already strong rotation that includes Ervin Santana, Jered Weaver, Joel Piniero, and Scott Kazmir, who is presently on the disabled list.

2010 - Andre Dawson, an outfielder with the Expos and Cubs, becomes the 203rd player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Joining 'Hawk' in Copperstown are former manager Whitey Herzog, major league ump Doug Harvey, broadcaster Jon Miller and baseball writer Bill Madden.

2010 - The Hall of Fame honors John Fogerty, for his classic song “Centerfield”. At the induction ceremonies, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer performs his 1985 hit, and then donates his baseball bat shaped-guitar to the Cooperstown museum.

2010 - Chris Coghlan seriously injures himself when he tries to smash a shaving-cream pie in Wes Helms’s face after his teammate hit a single to give the Marlins a 5-4 walk-off victory over Atlanta. The 2009 NL Rookie of the Year will go on the disabled list with a torn meniscus in his left knee, and will miss the remainder of the season.

2011 - Michael Cuddyer becomes the first Twins' position player to pitch since outfielder John Moses hurled against California in 1990. Moving from right field to the mound in the eighth inning, the starting first baseman gives up a double to Mike Napoli, a single to Mitch Moreland, and after Endy Chavez grounds out, the right-hander walks Ian Kinsler to load the bases, but then gets Elvis Andrus to fly out and David Murphy to pop-up for a scoreless frame in the 20-6 loss in Texas.

2011 - With the bases loaded and two outs, rookie Jason Kipnis delivers his first career hit giving the Indians a 3-2 walk-off ninth-inning victory over Los Angeles. The 24-year old second baseman was was 0-for-5 since being called up three days ago.

2011 - With their 4-0 victory of Houston combined with the 6-5 St. Louis loss to Cincinnati and Milwaukee's 4-0 loss to Colorado, the Pirates find themselves in sole possession of first place. This is the latest point in the season the Bucs have been on top of the standings since mid-july of the 1997 season.

2012 - Cole Hamels becomes the best paid Phillies player in history when he signs a guaranteed six-year, $144 million contract. The deal, the second richest contract for a pitcher, only behind the Yankees agreement with CC Sabathia, includes an option for a seventh season that could pay the southpaw as much as $162 million through 2019.

2013 - The Philadelphia Phillies released Carlos Zambrano.

2015 - Cole Hamels no-hits the Cubs at Wrigley Field as the Phillies win 5-0.  Jake Arietta takes the loss dropping his record to 11-6.  That's the last regular season loss by Arietta who wins his next 11 decisions to finish 22-6 in his Cy Young Award winning season.

2016 - The New York Yankees traded Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Adam Warren, Gleyber Torres, Billy McKinney and Rashad Crawford.

Today In White Sox History - July 25th


July 25, 1967- The White Sox sweep a pair from Cleveland‚ winning both games with game-ending home runs‚ a first in the AL. It has happened once in the NL. In Game 1‚ J.C. Martin‚ a replacement catcher in the 7th‚ hits a 2-run homer in the 9th to make Hoyt Wilhelm the winner in relief. Martin also homers in game 2‚ but it is Ken Berry's 2-run homer in the bottom of the 16th that wins it for the White Sox‚ 6-5. The Sox have just 7 hits in game 2 while the Indians squander 17. This is the second time in history and the 2nd time in 5 years that a doubleheader ends with two walkoff homers. The next time will be May 28‚ 2004.

On July 26 in Baseball History...

1872 - The National Association holds a special meeting, resolving that, because some teams have dropped out of the race, nine games will be played between contending teams this season instead of five.

1879 - At Star Park, Harry McCormick, the Syracuse starter, hits a first-inning homer to beat Tommy Bond and the Boston Red Stockings, 1-0. This most likely will be the only occurrence in major league history that a pitcher will record a 1-0 victory with his own first inning round-tripper being the game's lone run.

1900 - In Brooklyn, a sheriff seizes the St. Louis share of gate receipts to reimburse Gus Weyhing, a player released by the Cardinals, who claims to have been cheated out of ten days of pay.

1928 - At Navin Field in Detroit, Bob Meusel again hits for the cycle. The Yankees outfielder becomes the first big leaguer to accomplish the feat for a third time during his career.

1933 - Future Yankees superstar Joe DiMaggio sees his 61-game hitting streak come to an end in the PCL game against the Oakland Oaks. The San Francisco Seals' 19-year old outfielder accomplishment sets a new minor league record, shattering the mark of 49 established by Jack Ness in 1914.

1935 - Ed Linke starts a 1-2-6 double play when Yankees outfielder Jesse Hill's line drive, that caroms of his head, is caught by catcher Jack Redmond, who relays the ball to shortstop Red Kress to double up Ben Chapman at second base. The Senator right-hander will be hospitalized for two days after being carried off the pitcher's mound on a stretcher

1939 - The Yankees score in every inning blasting the Browns, 14-1. It's the second time in franchise history the feat has been accomplished.

1948 - Leo Durocher makes his first appearance at Ebbets Field since taking over the Giants, but the overflow crowd delights in a 13-4 win by the Dodgers.

1948 - Babe Ruth makes his last public appearance, at the New York premiere of the film The Babe Ruth Story. He will die of throat cancer three weeks later.

1950 - Brooklyn beats the Cardinals 7-5 as the Dodgers' Jim Russell switch-hits home runs, making him the first switch-hitter in history to do it more than once. Stan Musial hits in his thirtieth straight game, the longest streak of the decade.

1951 - In a 9-1 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley Field, Jim Russell becomes the the first player in major league history to hit a home run from sides of the plate in a game in two different games. The Dodger outfielder's accomplishment will be surpassed in 1956 when Yankee slugger Mickey Mantle goes deep both right and left-handed in the same game for a third time.

1957 - Future Hall of Famer Jim Bunning of the Tigers two-hits Yanks, 3-2, but one of the hits is Mickey Mantle's 200th career home run.

1962 - Braves' hurler Warren Spahn, en route to a complete game win, homers off Mets' right-hander Craig Anderson to set the National League record for round trippers hit by a pitcher. The southpaw's 31st career home run helps Milwaukee to extend New York's losing streak to 11 with a 6-1 victory at County Stadium.

1962 - Red Sox pitcher Gene Conley and infielder Pumpsie Green mysteriously disappear after leaving the team bus in traffic to use the bathroom. Later in the day, Conley is refused a ticket at the airport to fly to Israel because he doesn't have a visa.

1975 - At Wrigley Field, Bill Madlock collects six hits in a game when he singles five times and triples in the Cubs' 9-8 ten-inning loss to New York. 'Mad Dog', finishing with a .354 average, will win the first of his four batting titles (1975, '76, '81, '83) this season.

1978 - Johnny Bench hits his 300th career home run, and Rose hits in his thirty-ninth straight game, but the Reds bow to the Mets 12-3.

1987 - Catfish Hunter, Billy Williams, and Ray Dandridge are inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.

1987 - After hitting a single off Oakland's Dennis Lamp in the first inning of the Brewers' 7-4 victory at County Stadium, leadoff batter Paul Molitor steals second and third base, and then swipes home plate to complete a rare stolen base cycle. The Milwaukee DH becomes the first American Leaguer to steal his way around the bases since Dave Nelson accomplished the feat with the Rangers in 1974.

1991 - Mark Gardner no-hits the Dodgers for nine innings, but Los Angeles wins the game in the bottom of the tenth on two singles off the Expos' starter and Darryl Strawberry's RBI single off reliever Jeff Fassero.

1992 - In his 319th career victory, which surpasses Phil Niekro's total for #12 on the all-time list, Nolan Ryan strikes out his 100th batter for 23 consecutive seasons, a major league record.

1998 - Trevor Hoffman fails to set a big league record with 42 consecutive saves as Astros outfielder Moises Alou goes deep on the first pitch thrown by Padres closer. The ninth inning homer ties the game, but San Diego prevails and beats Houston in the 10th, 5-4.

2000 - The Phillies send their number one starter, Curt Schilling, to Arizona for first baseman-outfielder Travis Lee and pitchers Omar Daal, Vicente Padilla and Nelson Figueroa.

2002 - Carl Everett becomes the first Ranger to hit two home runs in one inning. The Texas designated hitter homers twice in the nine-run seventh inning during the 12-4 rout of visiting A's.

2005 - After waiting through a 2 hours, 43 minutes rain delay in Atlanta to start the game, Greg Maddux becomes the 13th pitcher in baseball history to register 3,000 strikeouts. Taking an inside fastball in the top of the third inning, Omar Vizquel of the Giants becomes the historic victim of the 39-year old Braves right-hander.

2007 - Jose Mesa, in a losing effort, becomes the 11th pitcher to appear in 1000 games when Washington beats the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, 7-6. The 39-year old right-handed reliever, best known for his seven seasons with Indians, has played for eight teams during his 19-year tenure in the major leagues.

2010 - Allowing only a second-inning walk to Brennan Boesch, who is promptly erased on a double play, Matt Garza faces the minimum 27 batters in his no-hitter against the Tigers. With the right-hander's 5-0 victory, the Rays join the 1917 Browns and White Sox as the only teams to be involved in three no-hitters in the same season.

2011 - With a 9-2 victory in New York, the Mariners post their first win since July 5 to end their 17-game losing streak, a franchise record. Seattle's recent futility surpassed the team's previous longest winless drought which consisted of 14 consecutive defeats in 1992.

2011 - The 19-inning, 6-hour and 39-minute game between the Pirates and Braves at Turner Field ends in a 4-3 Atlanta victory when Jerry Meals makes one of the worst call in baseball history. The home plate umpire rules that Michael McKenry had missed Julio Lugo, although it was evident to everyone in ballpark that the base runner was tagged out three feet in front of the dish.

2012 - After hitting a long fly ball down the left-field line at Citizens Bank Park, Carlos Gomez completes his home run trot around the bases. Arriving at home plate, he is made aware that the ball was called foul, and then the embarrassed Brewers center fielder promptly takes a called third strike on a pitch thrown right down the middle.

2012 - Starling Marte becomes the 28th player in history to homer on the first pitch he sees in the major leagues when he goes yard to deep left-center field at Minute Maid Park off Houston's Dallas Keuchel. The 23 year-old left fielder is the first Pirates player to hit a home run in his first big league at-bat since Don Lepper accomplish the feat in 1961.

2013 - The Cubs trade Alfonso Soriano, along with cash, to the Yankees in exchange for minor-leaguer Corey Black, a 21 year-old right-handed pitching prospect. The 37 year-old Dominican left fielder made his major league debut with the Bronx Bombers in 1999 developing into an All-star second baseman, before being traded to Texas four seasons later as part of a blockbuster deal that brought Alex Rodriguez to New York.

2014 - The St. Louis Cardinals signed A.J. Pierzynski as a free agent.

2014 - The Boston Red Sox traded Jake Peavy and cash to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for Heath Hembree and Edwin Escobar.

2015 - The Cincinnati Reds traded Johnny Cueto and cash to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed.
