  • 1905 - The Philadelphia A’s “sell” catcher Mike “Doc” Powers to the New York Highlanders. Powers will be sold back to the A’s on August 7th. Powers is needed to replace back-up C Red Kleinow, injured yesterday in a game with Detroit. Powers will play mainly at 1B, replacing Hal Chase whose nose was broken in the Detroit game.
  • 1927 - Chicago admirers present Eddie Collins, now with the A’s, with a new automobile. The A’s send out a lineup featuring Collins, Ty Cobb and Zack Wheat, all of whom have at least 2,500 hits entering the game. The next team to that will be the 2012 Yankees.
