Events[edit]

  • July 12 - the Chicago Cubs-St Louis doubleheader has 33 doubles. Due to the large crowd spilling onto the field, any ball hit into them is a ground-rule double.[1]
  • August 29 - Facing Cincinnati Reds pitcher Si Johnson in his first at bat in the major leagues, Chicago Cubs player Billy Herman hits Johnson's pitch, which ricochets of the back of home plate and hits Herman in the head, knocking him out[2]
