  • 1925 - In St. Louis, the Cardinals roll over Brooklyn, 15 - 3, behind Wee Willie Sherdel. In the 7th inning, the Red Birds rub it in with two steals of home, tying a major league record. It’s the last time it’s been done in the National League. Oakland will steal home twice in the 1st inning on May 28, 1980.
  • 1972 - In a 15-inning contest with Chicago, the A’s set an extra-inning record by using 30 players, including six second basemen and 10 pinch-hitters. Together the two clubs use 51 players, another record. Oakland still loses, 8 - 7.
