Weekend OT Thread


This day in baseball history.....

1901 Ban Johnson and Charles Comiskey lease Sportsman's Park for five years for an American League team. Two weeks later, they announced the Brewers, one of league's eight charter franchises, will be leaving Milwaukee to play in St. Louis as the Browns next season.
1914 The ban on Sunday baseball is upheld in Washington, DC by the Court of Appeals. Major league games will not be allowed on the Sabbath in the nation's capital until 1918.
1976 The Mariners and Blue Jays each select thirty players in the expansion draft. Seattle picks Royals' outfielder Ruppert Jones and Toronto selects Orioles' shortstop Bob Bailor as their team's respective first picks.
1976 The A's release Chuck Tanner from his contract allowing him to manage the Pirates in exchange for catcher Manny Sanguillen and $1000,000 from Pittsburgh. During his nine-year tenure with the Bucs, the likable skipper will compile a 711-685 (.509) record and will win a World Championship in 1979.
2010 One of the approximately 60 rare T206 Honus Wagner baseball card, auctioned off by the Baltimore-based School Sisters of Notre Dame, is acquired by Sports card store owner Doug Walton, who pays $262,000 for the treasured piece of memorabilia. The School Sisters of Notre Dame plan to use the windfall from the sale of the valuable card of the Pirates' third baseman to benefit ministries for the poor in 35 countries.
