Prospect Watch:


Today in Baseball History:

  • 1912 - Eddie Collins steals a 20th-century record six bases as the Athletics beat Detroit 9-7. He will repeat the feat on September 22nd.
  • 1954 - If you think the attendance woes are bad at the Coliseum, the Senators drew just 460 fans in their 5-4 win over the A’s.
  • 1970 - The White Sox use a Major League record 41 players in a doubleheader against the A’s. The A’s won both games.
