Today in Baseball History - July 3rd (Click to show)
1912 Giants' southpaw Rube Marquard wins his 19th consecutive game from the start of the season, beating the Brooklyn at Polo Grounds, 2-1. The 25 year-old future Hall of Famer, who will complete the campaign with a 26-11 record, compiles the most victories any pitcher has ever had to begin a year without suffering a defeat.

1925 Milt Stock sets a National League mark by having his fourth consecutive four-hit game. The second baseman's offensive output helps the Dodgers to beat New York at Ebbets Field, 6-3.

1929 The Cubs and the Reds become the first teams to collectively turn nine double plays in a major league contest. Chicago, responsible for five of the twin killings, beats Cincinnati at Wrigley Field, 7-5.

1932 With a Boston law restricting games within 1000 feet of a church on Sundays, the first Sunday game is played at Fenway Park with the Red Sox losing to the Yankees, 13-2.

1936 San Diego minor leaguer Ted Williams, pinch hitting for the pitcher in the seventh inning in a game against the Angels, gets his first professional hit, a long single off the right field fence at LA's Wrigley Field off Glen Babler. The 17 year-old Padres player stays in the PCL contest to replace the hurler he batted for, retiring the side in order, but will be removed from the mound in the next frame when he gives up two home runs.

1939 Cardinal first baseman Johnny Mize accumulates 13 total bases, hitting two home runs, a triple and a double. The 'Big Cat's' offensive output contributes to the Redbirds' 5-3 win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

1945 At Braves Field in Boston‚ the Cubs tally the most runs in their post-1900 history when they blast the Braves, 24-2. Phil Cavarretta‚ Don Johnson‚ and Stan Hack each score five times, tying a major league mark.

1947 The Indians purchase Larry Doby from the Newark Eagles. In two days, the 22 year-old center fielder, will become the first black to play in the American League, appearing as a pinch-hitter against Chicago at Comiskey Park.

1948 **** Lane hits five homers in a Fort Wayne Central League game. The Muskegon slugger will finish the season with a dozen round-trippers, but he will never go deep in a major league game.

1949 En route to a 16-0 shutout of the Dodgers at the Polo Grounds, starting pitcher Monte Kennedy hits a grand slam. It will take 51 years before another Giants hurler hits a bases full home run when Shawn Estes accomplishes the feat in 2000.

1952 In a 14-2 victory over Brunswick, Cordele A’s third baseman Ralph Betcher goes deep for the Philadelphia farm club, accounting for the only home run the team will hit all season. 'Froggie’, a moniker given to the infielder because of his deep voice, records the only round-tripper in the 4,679 at bats that the Class D team will take during the 139-game Georgia-Florida minor league season.

1958 In their 35th home date in L.A., the transplanted Dodgers reach the one million mark in attendance. Last season, the team drew only 1,028,258 fans, playing in Brooklyn's Ebbets Field.

1965 After pinch-hitting a home run in a 10-8 loss to Cincinnati, Frank Thomas is placed on waivers by the Phillies. Prior to the Connie Mack Stadium game, he and third baseman **** Allen are involved in an infamous fistfight which the Philadelphia players are not permitted to provide details of the incident to the press without facing a stiff fine imposed by the club.

1966 In a 17-3 rout of the Giants, Tony Cloninger hits two grand slams in the same game and collects nine RBI's in the Candlestick Park contest. The Braves' pitcher is the first National League player to hit two home runs with the bases full in the same game.

1967 Billy Williams‚ Ron Santo‚ and Randy Hundley all homer for the Cubs in the first‚ and Rico Carty and Felipe Alou also go deep for the Braves in the same inning in Chicago's 12-6 victory at Atlanta Stadium. The five round-trippers at the 'Launching Pad' tie a major league record for home runs hit by two teams in the same inning, but it's the first time the feat has been accomplished in the opening frame.

1968 Luis Tiant strikes out nineteen Twins and scatters six hits in a ten-inning 1-0 complete-game victory against Minnesota at Cleveland Stadium. 'El Tiante', who equals Sandy Koufax's record for 41 strikeouts for three consecutive games, becomes the second hurler to whiff more than 18 batters in an American League contest, behind only Tom Cheney of the Senators, who recorded more when he punched out 21 Baltimore batters in a 16-inning game in 1962.

1970 Angels southpaw Clyde Wright no-hits the visiting A's at Anaheim Stadium, 4-0. 'Skeeter' accomplishes the task in one hour and 51 minutes, needing to throw only 98 pitches.

1973 Although neither starter will finish the game, the Perry siblings oppose one another for the only time in their careers. Jim gets a no-decision while his younger brother Gaylord takes the loss when the Tigers beat the Indians at Cleveland Stadium, 5-4.

1973 After waiting three hours to begin the game due to rain, the Reds beat San Francisco at Riverfront Stadium, 6-3. At the end of the contest, the Cincinnati fans are treated to the nation's earliest Independence Day celebration, when the team begins launching fireworks at two o'clock in the morning. (our thanks to NPC editor Steve Basford, who attended this game and stayed for the fireworks, for sharing this fact!)

1977 On his 24th birthday, Angel left-hander Frank Tanana tosses his 14th consecutive complete game with his 6-4 victory over Oakland at Anaheim Stadium. The win improves the southpaw's record to 12-5, but he will finish the season at only 15-9 due to a 'tired' arm.

1983 At Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, the Rangers score 12 times in the 15th inning, making it the most runs scored by a team in extra innings. Texas beats the A's in the previously tied game, 16-4.

1987 On '**** Howser Day' at Royals Stadium, the former manager, who died last month from brain cancer, is inducted into the team's Hall of Fame. The club also honors the late Miami, Florida native, manager of the team from 1981-86, by retiring his uniform number 10, the first digits to be withdrawn for future use in the history of the franchise.

1987 Paul Splittorff, the team's all-time leader in victories, is inducted into the Royals' Hall of Fame, along with late manager **** Howser and infielder Cookie Rojas. The slender southpaw was the first player selected by the franchise to appear on its major league roster.

1994 In a ceremony considered by many to be long overdue, the Indians retire the uniform number 14 that was worn by Hall of Famer Larry Doby, the first black to play in the American League. On this date exactly 47 years ago, Cleveland owner Bill Veeck purchased the 23 year-old from the Newark Eagles of the Negro National League.

1995 In a slugfest at Coors Field, Andres Galarraga enjoys a 6-for-6 performance at the plate when the Rockies bang out 21 hits. The first baseman’s offensive output, which includes two homers and five RBIs, contributes to Colorado’s 15-10 victory over Houston.

1996 In a 10-6 Mets victory over Philadelphia, Alex Ochoa enjoys a 5-for-5 day at Veterans Stadium. With his eighth inning homer, the 24 year-old right fielder becomes the sixth player in franchise history to hit for the cycle.

2001 The Padres tie a National League record, hitting four sacrifice flies in one game. The last one, lifted by shortstop D'Angelo Jimenez in the sixth inning, gives the Friars a 6-5 victory over Colorado at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.

2002 In an 11-8 loss to the Yankees, Jim Thome homers in his seventh consecutive game. The solo shot, off southpaw David Wells, leaves the Indians' slugger one shy of the major league record shared by Dale Long (1956, Pirates), Don Mattingly (Yankees, 1987) and Ken Griffey, Jr. (1993, Mariners).

2005 During the fireworks display at Pawtucket’s McCoy Stadium, two shells misfire, landing in the stands. Four or five employees of the Telstar Display Fireworks suffer minor burns, and some fans are injured when they stumble trying to escape from the mishap.

2006 Barry Bonds (41), Steve Finley (41), and birthday boy Moises Alou (40) become the first trio of 40 year-olds to start a game in the same outfield. The senior flycatchers combine to go 4-for-11 along with two stolen bases to help the Giants defeat Philadelphia, 5-3.

2009 Albert Pujols' 8th inning home run with the bases loaded proves to be the difference in the Cardinals' 7-4 victory over the Reds. The grand slam, the tenth of his career, establishes a new franchise record, moving 'El Hombre' past Redbird Hall of Famer Stan Musial.

2010 With homers in his first two at-bats, Twins' DH Jim Thome passes franchise legend Harmon Killebrew with 574 round-trippers and moves into tenth place on the all-time home run list. The team plays a previously recorded message from the much beloved Hall of Famer in which he congratulates the designated hitter on the career accomplishment.

2013 In his final attempt to play major league baseball after being given a 100-game suspension in 2011 for taking performance-enhancing drugs, Manny Ramirez agrees to a minor league deal with the Rangers. After experiencing a lack of production due to his decreased bat speed while playing for the PCL's Round Rock Express, the 41 year-old outfielder/DH will be released by Texas next month, effectively ending his controversial 19-year major league career with a lifetime .312 batting average.

2014 Andrew Rector files a $10 million defamation suit in the Bronx Supreme Court against the Yankees, MLB, ESPN, and the broadcast's play-by-play man Dan Shulman and commentator John Kruk. The 26 year-old used car salesman claims the commentary and photos of him at the April 13th nationally televised Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium showed him in a false light, damaged his reputation, and the fact that he was napping was not an issue of legitimate public concern.

So ridiculous. How about some human rights?

I'm surprised Cuba still allows their players to play in overseas tournaments. Guaranteed one or two defections every time.
