  • 1979 - Royals third baseman George Brett collects his 20th triple of the season in a 16-4 romp over the Angels. Brett becomes the sixth player ever, and the first since Willie Mays in 1957, to collect twenty doubles, twenty triples, and twenty home runs in the same season. He will finish with totals of 42, 20, and 23.
  • 1984 - Reggie Jackson, at thirty-eight, became the thirteenth player in Major League history to record five-hundred home runs. No. 500 came off Kansas City pitcher Bud Black. His homer came exactly seventeen years after he got his first career hit.
