1922 Charlie Robertson of the Chicago White Sox pitched a 2-0 perfect game against the Detroit Tigers. Johnny Mostil, playing leftfield for the only time, made two outstanding catches.

1988 New York and Cincinnati played a wild game at Riverfront Stadium that the Mets pulled out 6-5, on a delayed call by first base umpire Dave Pallone.

The protesters turned their backs when the Yankees batted, then walked out of Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium during the fourth inning. The Yankees began the season with baseball's top payroll at $85.05 million, and the Royals were 25th at $23.8 million.
