  • 1973 - David Clyde, 18 and fresh out of Houston’s Westchester High School, makes his much hyped debut with the Rangers, before 35,698, the largest Rangers crowd of the year. Clyde, the number one pick in the 1973 amateur draft, walks the first two Twins batters he faces, then gets Bobby Darwin, George Mitterwald and Joe Lis on swinging third strikes. Clyde goes five innings and gives up only one hit - a two-run home run by Mike Adams - walks seven and strikes out 8. He is the winner, 4 - 3.
  • 1996 - The Athletics stroke eight home runs in an 18 - 2 pounding of the Angels. Scott Brosius hits 2, while Mark McGwire, Geronimo Berroa, Jason Giambi, Terry Steinbach, Ernie Young and Jose Herrera also connect. The seven different players going deep ties the major league record.
