OT Thread - July 16


Good day, Ranger fans!!! Everyone have a great day!!

1897

At the age of 45, Chicago Colts' (Cubs) first baseman Cap Anson becomes the first major leaguer to amass 3000 hits when he singles off Baltimore's George Blackburn.

1909

The Tigers and Senators play the longest scoreless game in American League history. Detroit's Ed Summers, who gives up just seven hits, goes the distance as the 0-0 contest is called after the 18th inning.

1920

After pitching 16 scoreless frames, Earl Hamilton and the Pirates lose to the Giants in the 17th at Forbes Field, 7-0. New York starter Rube Benton tosses 17 shutout innings to get the victory.

1988

In the longest game ever played in Texas League history, the San Antonio Missions beat the visiting Jackson Mets in 26 innings, 1-0. The Keefe Stadium contest, which started on July 14, was suspended at 2:25 a.m. the following day and continued on July 16, took a total of 7 hours and 23 minutes to complete.

2000

A 1919 Chicago 'Black Sox' autographed baseball is auctioned for $93,666 at eBay. The ball's value, believed to be the most for such an item, was unusually high because the autographs included Shoeless Joe Jackson who was considered illiterate and usually just signed legal documents.

2003

At the age of 77, Minnie Minoso becomes the first player to play professional baseball in seven decades. The Cuban native, who played his last full season in 1963 with the White Sox, walks as the designated hitter for the St. Paul Saints against the Gary SouthShore RailCats in Northern League action, an independent minor league.
