Today in Baseball History:

  • 1934 — In a Negro National League game, Satchel Paige pitches a 4 - 0 no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Crawfords against the Homestead Grays in Pittsburgh, with only a walk and an error spoiling a perfect game. He strikes out 17. Josh Gibson is his catcher, the only time in Negro league history in which battery-mates in a no-hitter are both members of the Hall of Fame, something which has never happened in the white majors. Legend claims that Paige then drives to Chicago to shut out the Chicago American Giants, 1 - 0, in 12 innings, giving him two shutouts in two different cities in the same day, but the claim has since been disproved. The no-hitter, however, is documented.
  • 2014 — The Athletics pull off a blockbuster trade, acquiring starting pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs in return for three top prospects, SS Addison Russell, OF Billy McKinney and P Dan Straily.
