Today in Baseball History:

  • 1957 — With a unanimous vote, National League owners grant permission to both the Dodgers and Giants to relocate their clubs to the West Coast if they so desire.
  • 2008 — In a rare big-name match-up in A ball, the Vero Beach Devil Rays beat the St. Lucie Mets, 2 - 0. Pedro Martinez, a three-time Cy Young Award winner on a rehab start, allows two runs in six innings to take the loss. The win goes to David Price, the top pick of the 2008 amateur draft, making his second pro start. Price allows two hits and no walks in six shutout frames, fanning nine. Martinez says: “He’s amazing, that kid.” The two will be pitching in the World Series at the end of the year.
