In fact, the season’s last month will never be played, with the World Series starting at the beginning of September.
  • 2014 - In a trade of minor leaguers with excellent bloodlines, the Angels send 1B Matt Scioscia, son of manager Mike Scioscia, to the Cubs in return for OF Trevor Gretzky, son of all-time hockey great Wayne Gretzky.
