    On September 6 in Baseball History...


    1888 - The National League Indianapolis Hoosiers club tries its second experimental night game (the first was August 22), but the natural gas illumination is inadequate, and the idea is dropped.

    1905 - Frank Smith of the Chicago White Sox pitched a no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers in a 15-0 victory in the second game of a doubleheader. The score was the most lopsided margin of victory during a no-hitter in American League history.


    1912 - In a game which purposely matches the superstars, Boston hurler Smokey Joe Wood bests Senators' legend Walter Johnson, 1-0 for his 30th (14th consecutive) victory in a season in which he will win 34. The Red Sox only run is a result of back-to-back doubles by Tris Speaker and Duffy Lewis, the first two-bagger should have been an easy fly out, but the ball lands into an area cordoned off by a rope to section off the overflow Fenway Park crowd.

    1912 - Jeff Tesreau becomes the third rookie to throw a no-hitter. The 24-year old right-hander holds the Phillies hitless in the Giants' 3-0 victory in the first game of a twin bill at the Baker Bowl.

    1918 - In Game Two of the World Series, which is being played a month early because of World War I, Lefty Tyler of the Cubs drives in two runs in the three-run second. The Red Sox get one in the ninth, but Tyler beats Joe Bush 3-1.

    1924 - Urban Shocker of the St. Louis Browns pitched two complete games against the Chicago White Sox and won both, 6-2.


    1924 - In a game that features a total of only six hits, the Brooklyn Robins beat Boston 1-0 behind the strong two-hit performance of right-hander Bill Doak. The Braves Field victory is the team's 15th consecutive win establishing the longest winning streak in franchise history.

    1943 - At sixteen years, eight months, five days, Philadelphia A's pitcher Carl Scheib became the youngest player to appear in an American League game.

    1945 - Punching umpire Joe Rue earns an indefinite suspension for Philadelphia A's catcher Greek George. George will not play in the majors again, though his lifetime batting average of .177 might be the main cause.

    1950 - Don Newcombe missed pitching complete games in a doubleheader for the Brooklyn Dodgers by leaving in the seventh inning of the second game trailing the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0. Newcombe had won the first game 2-0.

    1952 - The National League's longest game of the season ends when Del Ennis hits a walk-off home run in the 17th inning, giving the Phillies a 7-6 victory over the Braves in the first game of a twin bill at Shibe Park. Philadelphia starter Robin Roberts goes the distance giving up 18 hits in the three-hour and fifty minute contest.

    1953 - With Giants manager Leo Durocher yelling "stick it in his ear", Rubén Gómez hits Carl Furillo, the National League's leading hitter, on the wrist by a pitch. After taking first base, the Dodgers right fielder bolts into the opposing dugout to choke 'Leo the Lip', but in the melee, the knuckle on his little finger is fractured putting an end to his season.

    1954 - Carlos Paula of Cuba integrates the Washington Senators. Next year, in his only full season in the majors, the Havana-born outfielder will be given consideration for the Rookie of the Year honors as he leads all freshmen by hitting .299.

    1963 - Baseball historian Lee Allen says the Indians vs Senators game is the 100,000th in Major League history. Bennie Daniels celebrates by beating the Tribe 7-2.

    1967 - n Detroit, Tiger right-hander Earl Wilson throws a complete game to earn his 20th victory of the season beating the A’s in the nightcap of a twin bill, 6-3. The 32-year old Louisianian will compile a 22-11 record along with an ERA of 3.27 helping to keep the second-place club in the pennant race until the final day of the season.

    1968 - Jerry Koosman sets a new franchise mark for victories getting his 17th win of the season when the Mets beat Pittsburgh, 4-1. The rookie southpaw breaks the team record established last year by Tom Seaver.

    1973 - Two Alou brothers are released by the Yankees. Felipe is sold to the Expos and Matty goes to the Cardinals.

    1974 - Behind the complete-game pitching performances by Dave McNally and Mike Cuellar, the Orioles sweep a twin bill, blanking Cleveland twice, 2-0 and 1-0. The victories are the fourth and fifth consecutive shutouts thrown by the Birds‚ who establish an American League mark by hurling 54 straight scoreless frames.

    1976 - Los Angeles catcher Steve Yeager was seriously injured when the jagged end of a broken bat struck him in the throat while he was waiting in the on-deck circle.

    1977 - The Angels acquire Dave Kingman from the Padres for cash. Nine days later the Yankees will buy Kingman, making him the first player to wear four uniforms in four divisions in the same year. Kingman, who started the season in New York with the Mets, will hit twenty-six home runs to set the mark for the most by a player with more than two teams.

    1981 - Fernando Valenzuela ties the National League's rookie record for shutouts blanking St. Louis, 5-0, for his seventh whitewash of the season. The Dodger lefty shares the mark with Irv Young (1905 Beaneaters), Grover Alexander (1911 Phillies), and Jerry Koosman (1968 Mets).

    1981 - Calling it the most the ''most agonizing'' decision he has made as the owner of the Yankees, George Steinbrenner fires Gene Michael and replaces him with Bob Lemon. The former skipper's demise was prompted by his comments to the press concerning his inability to no longer tolerate the Boss's constant threats of dismissal, and for his refusal to apologize for the remarks.

    1982 - Veteran first baseman Willie Stargell, whose number is retired, is saluted by 38,000 fans on his day at Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium. The 41-year-old slugger delivers a pinch single in the Pirates' 6-1 win over the Mets.

    1985 - In a match up of aces that lives up its advanced billing, Dwight Gooden and Fernando Valenzuela hook up in one of the best pitchers’ duel in recent memory. New York beats LA, 2-0, thanks to Darryl Strawberry's two-run double on a day that the Mets right-hander strikes out 10 batters, throwing nine shutout innings while the Dodgers southpaw pitches 11 innings without allowing a run.

    1995 - Cal Ripken breaks Lou Gehrig's consecutive game record playing in his 2,131st straight game. When the game becomes official in the middle of the fifth inning, the new 'Iron Man' takes a victory lap around Camden Yards during the 22-minute standing ovation from the sell-out crowd, including President Bill Clinton.


    1996 - Eddie Murray hit his 500th home run, joining Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Willie Mays as the only players with at least 3,000 hits and 500 homers. Murray homered off Felipe Lira in the seventh inning of the Baltimore Orioles' 5-4, 12-inning loss to Detroit.

    1996 - Brett Butler returns to the Dodger line-up four months after having surgery for throat cancer. The thirty-nine year old center fielder scores the decisive run in a 3-2 victory over the Pirates.

    1996 - After reaching a sponsorship deal with a local energy company, the Reds officially rename Riverfront Stadium to Cinergy Field. The ballpark, a multi-purpose, circular cookie-cutter stadium which opened in 1970, will be imploded in 2002 after serving the team for 32 seasons to help make to make room for Cincinnati's new home, the Great American Ball Park.

    1996 - Paul Molitor reaches the 200-hit plateau for the fourth time in his career when he singles off Chuck Finley in the Twins' 6-2 victory over California at the Metrodome. The Minnesota DH becomes the second major leaguer to reach the milestone as a 40-year old, joining Sam Rice, who accomplished the feat while playing with the Senators in 1930.

    2000 - After reaching an agreement with Mogan, Lewis and Bockis LLP, Major League Baseball can now use the URL www.mlb.com. The law firm registered the mlb.com in 1994 and refused to release the domain name making it necessary for the sport to use www.majorleaguebaseball.com.

    2000 - Scott Sheldon joins Bert Campaneris (A's, 1965) and César Tovar (Twins, 1968) to become the third player in baseball history to play all nine positions in a single game. With the White Sox ahead 10-0, the Ranger infielder comes into the game defensively in the bottom of the fourth inning replacing backstop Bill Haselman, and will proceed to play in every spot on the field, including a third of an inning on the mound where he strikes out the only batter he faces.


    2001 - Joining Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds becomes the fifth major leaguer to hit 60 home runs in a season. The 37 year-old Giant left fielder, who is the oldest to join this elite group, reaches the historic plateau the quickest needing only 141 games to reach the milestone.

    2002 - For the first time in 11 years, the Homer Hanky makes its return to the Metrodome in hopes of halting the A' record-setting 20-game winning streak. The Twins, 8-0 in World Series home games (1987 and 1991) with the fans waving their trademark towels, see the magic continue when they blank Oakland, 6-0.

    2005 - At an afternoon press conference at PNC Park, Pirates General Manager Dave Littlefield announces manager Lloyd McClendon has been dismissed. The former skipper, who compiled a 336-446 record during his 3+ year tenure in the Bucs dugout, will be replaced by bench coach Pete Mackanin on an interim basis for the remainder of the season.

    2005 - As part of the National Roberto Clemente Day celebration, teams will collect donations from fans in support of the Hurricane Katrina relief effort. Also, in remembrance of those affected by the disaster, major league players will don helmets bearing the Red Cross logo on the right side and the number to call to help those in need will appear on the sides of the bases.

    2006 - With the help of three defensive gems at Miami's Dolphin Stadium, Anibal Sanchez no-hits the Diamondbacks, 2-0, when Eric Byrnes makes the last out of the game on a questionable, bang-bang play at first base. The 22-year old Venezuelan hurler is the 18th rookie to throw a no-hitter and he joins Al Leiter, Kevin Brown and A.J. Burnett as the fourth Marlin to throw a no-hitter.

    2009 - With a lead-off first-inning double in the Mariners' 5-2 loss in Oakland, Ichiro Suzuki becomes 259th player and the second-quickest to collect 2000 major league hits. In 1933, Al Simmons, playing with the White Sox, reached the milestone in his 1,390th game, a dozen contests less than Seattle's superstar.


    2012 - Cal Ripken becomes the fifth Oriole of the six O's who have been inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame to have a statue dedicated in Camden Yards' Legends Park. The Iron Man joins Frank Robinson, Earl Weaver, Jim Palmer and Eddie Murray, along with Brooks Robinson, who will be also honored at the end of the month.


    2013 - Facing his former team, Yusmeiro Petit retires the first 26 Diamondbacks he faces in the Giants’ 3-0 victory at AT&T Park. The 28 year-old right-hander’s bid for perfection is spoiled by pinch-hitter Eric Chavez, who strokes a line drive single to right field with two outs in the ninth inning. \

    2015 - The Baltimore Orioles claimed Andy Wilkins from the Los Angeles Dodgers on waivers.

    On September 5 in Baseball History...


    1908 - Brooklyn's Nap Rucker pitched a 6-0 no-hitter against the Boston Braves at Washington Park. Rucker struck out fourteen and walked none. The Dodgers made three errors.

    1914 - En route to tossing a 9-0 shutout against the Toronto Maple Leafs, 19-year old Babe Ruth of the AAA Providence Grays hits the first home run in his professional career. The site of the ‘Sultan of Swat’s’ only minor-league homer, Hanlan's Point Stadium which was located on Lake Ontario’s Toronto Islands near the city's mainland, is being promoted as a historical landmark by Jerry Amernic, author of Gift of the Bambino

    1918 - The Cubs switch their home games to Comiskey Park with its larger seating capacity for the World Series. Babe Ruth, having completed thirteen scoreless innings in his first World Series two years ago, adds nine more in edging Hippo Vaughn 1-0 in the opener. During the seventh-inning stretch, a military band plays "The Star Spangled Banner." From then on, it is played at every World Series game, every season opener, and whenever a band is present to play it, though it is not yet adopted as the national anthem. The custom of playing it before every game will begin during World War II, after the installation of public address systems.

    1921 - In an 11-inning complete-game losing effort against Philadelphia, Walter Johnson fans seven A's batters to break Cy Young's major league record for career strikeouts. In 1927, the 'Big Train' will finish his 21-year tenure with the Senators with 3,509 punch outs, a record which will last for 62 seasons until it is broken by Steve Carlton.

    1921 - Elmer Smith establishes a major league record collecting seven straight extra base hits over a two day span. The 28-year old Indian outfielder from Sandusky, Ohio bangs out four home runs and three doubles during the streak.

    1938 - For the third time this season, Dodger catcher Babe Phelps breaks a bone in his throwing hand. Although the injuries will limit his playing time to only 66 games and 208 at-bats this season, the southpaw-swinging backstop will hit .308 and was named to the National League All-Star team, the first of three consecutive games he'll play in the Mid-summer classic.

    1954 - Playing in the Class C Longhorn League, Joe Bauman of the Roswell Rockets hits three home runs to give him 72 for the season. Although the 32-year old slugging minor league first baseman never made it to the majors, his home run total stood as a record in professional baseball until it was broken with 73 dingers by Giants outfielder Barry Bonds in 2001.

    1955 - Reds' slugger Ted Kluszewski goes deep off Warren Spahn in an eventual 9-7 victory over the Braves in the nightcap of a twin bill. The homer, the first baseman's 44th overall, is the 34th round-tripper he has hit at Crosley Field, making it the most ever hit in one season by one man in the same ballpark, an accomplishment which will stand until Sammy Sosa eclipses the mark in 1998 at Wrigley Field.

    1955 - In an 11-4 win over the Phillies, Dodger pitcher Don Newcombe hits his seventh homer establishing a National League record for home runs by a pitcher in a season. The victory is Newk's 20th of the season.

    1960 - At the age of 41, Diomedes Olivo makes his major league debut, pitching in relief for the Pirates. The oldest rookie in National League history hurls two scoreless innings against Milwaukee at Forbes Field.

    1969 - Tom Seaver becomes the first pitcher in franchise history to win 20 games in one season when the Mets beat the Phillies at Shea Stadium, 5-1. 'Tom Terrific', who will finish the season with a 25-7 record for the world champs, tosses a five-hit, complete game to reach the milestone.

    1971 - In his major league debut, J.R. Richard throws a complete game in the Astros’ 5-3 victory over San Francisco at Candlestick Park. The 21-year old right-handed fireballer strikes out a major-league rookie record 15 batters in his first major league appearance.

    1976 - Reds' infielder Joe Morgan becomes the first second baseman in 26 years to drive in 100 runs when his third-inning single off Dick Ruthven plates Pete Rose and Ken Grifffey in the team's 6-4 victory in Atlanta. The last second sacker to reach the plateau was Bobby Doerr, who accomplished the feat in 1950 with the Red Sox.

    1979 - Just one defeat shy of the American League record, A's starting pitcher Matt Keough snaps his eighteen-game consecutive losing streak, which includes four losses at the end of of last season. The 24-year old right-hander tosses a 6-1 complete-game victory over the Brewers at the Oakland Coliseum to avoid the dubious distinction.

    1980 - George Bamberger (235-180, .556) announces he will step down as Brewers skipper after tomorrow's game after spending 2+ seasons with Milwaukee. 'Bambi', who will return to the club in 1985 after a two-year stint with the Mets, is replaced in the dugout by Buck Rodgers.

    1982 - Roy Smalley hit a pair of three-run homers, one from each side of the plate, as the Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 18-7.

    1989 - Deion Sanders, the fifth player selected overall in the 1989 NFL Draft, hits a home run as the Bronx Bombers rout the Mariners at the Kingdome, 12-2. Five days later in his NFL debut with the Atlanta Falcons, the Yankee rookie returns a punt 68 yards for a touchdown.

    1995 - When the game becomes official in the bottom of the fifth inning, Cal Ripken receives a standing ovation for over five minutes from the sellout crowd at Oriole Park at Camden Yards as he ties Yankee legend Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 consecutive games.

    1998 - Giant rookie Armando Rios hits home runs for his first two major league hits. Expos third baseman Shane Andrews accomplished the same feat on April 27 and 28 in 1995.

    1998 - Mark McGwire becomes the third and quickest player in major league history to hit 60 home runs in a season. 'Big Mac' accomplishes the feat in 141 games as compared to Babe Ruth (154) and Roger Maris (159).

    1998 - Giants outfielder Barry Bonds sets a new National League mark reaching base in 15 consecutive plate appearances. His five singles, two doubles, two homers and six walks during the streak breaks Dodger Pedro Guerrero's mark of 14 established in 1983.

    1999 - The Reds, by hitting five home runs in a 9-7 victory over the Phillies, establish a major league record homering 14 times in two games. Yesterday, Cincinnati set a National League record by hitting nine homers in their 22-3 rout of the Phillies.

    1999 - In the 6000th regular season game in franchise history, the Mets score all their runs in the fifth inning to beat Colorado at Shea Stadium, 6-2. The victory brings New York's overall record to 2826-3166 (.472) with 8 ties, but the team falls just one game shy of breaking even in their last 1000 games.

    2000 - The Chicago Cubs released Matt Karchner.

    2001 - At PacBell Park, Curt Shilling tosses eight innings of five-hit ball to beat San Francisco, 7-2. The 34-year old right-hander, who attended high school in Arizona, becomes the first 20-game winner in the three year history of the franchise.

    2003 - Mike Maroth becomes the first hurler since 1980 to lose 20 games in a season when the Tigers blow a 5-2 lead in an 8-6 Blue Jays victory at the Skydome. Former A's pitcher Brian Kingman, who accomplished the infamous feat 23 years ago, is in attendance in the 19th row at the Skydome with a voodoo doll in an effort to remain the last 20-game loser.

    2003 - Todd Zeile extends his major league record when he homers for his eleventh team in the Expos' 6-2 victory over Florida at Puerto Rico's Hiram Bithorn stadium. The third baseman's first round-tripper with the club is a three-run shot off Mark Redman that puts Montreal ahead in the bottom of the sixth inning, 3-1.

    2006 - In Pittsfield, a Park Square ceremony celebrates the anniversary of the signing of an ordinance which banned baseball from being played in the park. The 1791 bylaw, passed to protect the windows of the Massachusetts town's new meeting house, is believed to be the earliest written reference to baseball.

    2007 - In a 10-2 rout of the Mariners at the Stadium, Alex Rodriguez becomes the fourth player in Yankees history to homer twice in one inning. Prior to the game, the limping third baseman had gone to a hospital to have his sore right ankle examined and needed to talk his way into the lineup upon his return to ballpark.

    2007 - Reds’ infielder Brandon Phillips goes deep for the 28th time this season surpassing Joe Morgan's team record for home runs by a second baseman. The Big Red Machine second sacker hit 27 homers in 1976, the season the Hall of Famer wins his second consecutive MVP award.

    2007 - Due to his outstanding contribution in rebuilding the historic fields of West Tampa Little League, Carl Crawford is named the Devil Rays recipient of the 2007 Roberto Clemente Award. The Tampa Bay outfielder is one of 30 Major League Club nominees for the national award presented by Chevrolet, which is given to the person who has outstanding skills as a ballplayer, and who has a passion for community involvement.

    2007 - Unknown at the time, Bob Sheppard works his last game at Yankee Stadium, a task he has performed over 4,500 times since becoming the team's P.A. announcer in 1951. The 96-year old 'Voice of God' is replaced by his longtime sub Jim Hall and Paul Olden, who will fill the position when the team moves to the new ballpark in 2009.

    2009 - In the seventh inning of the Pirates' 2-1 loss to St. Louis at PNC Park, Ross Ohlendorf strikes out the side on nine pitches becoming only the 41st pitcher in major league history to accomplish the feat. The 27-year old right-hander's victims during his immaculate inning include Redbirds Kevin Greene, Julio Lugo, and Jason LaRue, all who are retired at first base after swinging at pitches in the dirt.

    2010 - Bill Mazeroski looks on as four of his Pirates teammates unveil a 14-foot, 2,000-pound statue commemorating his walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series. The work includes an actual section of the left-center field wall which the second baseman homered over at the 406 mark off Yankee hurler Ralph Terry in the Pirates’ 10-9 victory.


    2010 - Sixty-three year-old Bill Lee allows only two runs and five hits in 5.1 innings in his start for Brockton against Worcester in a Can-Am League contest played at Campanelli Stadium. In his first game in pro ball since being released by the Expos in 1982, the former Red Sox southpaw, known as the Spaceman, becomes the oldest pitcher to earn a victory in professional baseball when the Rox beat Tornadoes, 7-3.

    2010 - The game’s final out in the Twins' 6-5 victory over the Rangers is the result of third base coach Dave Anderson being called for interfering with runner Michael Young. Umpire Alfonso Marquez rules that the runner tapped hands with his coach before stopping and scrambling back to the bag.

    2011 - Craig Counsell pinch hits a ninth-inning single against Houston reliever Enerio Del Rosario to snap an 0-for-45 hitless streak. The Brewers' veteran infielder's first hit since June 10 leaves him tied with Bill Bergen (1909) and Dave Campbell (1973) for the longest drought by a position player without a hit.

    2014 - Masahiro Yamamoto, in his first and only start of the season, becomes Japan's oldest winning pitcher when he tosses five scoreless innings in the Chunichi Dragons’ 6-0 victory over Hanshin at the Nagoya Dome. At the age 49 years, 25 days, the southpaw screwballer surpasses Shinji Hamazak’s mark, who was credited with a win with Hankyu in 1950 when he was of 48 years and 4 months old, but is 125 days younger than Jamie Moyer, the oldest professional player to win a game, accomplishing the feat with the Rockies in 2012.

    2014 - The Rangers, declining to comment on the nature of the matter, announce that Ron Washington has resigned as the team's manager to attend a personal and off-field matters. The 62 year-old skipper, who will be replaced by Tim Bogar through the end of the season on an interim basis, ends his eight-season tenure with Texas with a 664-611 win-loss record, leading the club three playoff appearances, and two trips to the World Series.

    2017 - The Chicago White Sox released Derek Holland.
