Today in Baseball History:

  • 1912 - Ty Cobb charges into the stands at Hilltop Park in New York and attacks a crippled heckler named Claude Lueker. Other fans and Tigers mix it up before order is restored. Ban Johnson suspends Cobb indefinitely for the incident.
  • 1941 - Joe DiMaggio gets a single in four at bats against Eddie Smith of the Chicago White Sox to start his 56-game hitting streak. Joe D’s hit goes unnoticed as the Yankees lose, 13 - 1.
  • 2014 - Johnny Cueto shuts out the Padres on three hits as the Reds win, 5 - 0. Cueto has now pitched at least 7 innings and given up 2 runs or less in all 9 of his starts this season; to find a pitcher with a longer such streak to start a year, one has to go all the way back to 1909 when Harry Krause did it for 10 games for the Philadelphia Athletics in the heart of the deadball era.
