Today in Baseball History:

  • 1980 — A’s owner Charlie Finley sells the club for $12.7 million to the Haas family of San Francisco, CA, owners of the Levi Strauss clothing empire, thus keeping the team in Oakland.
  • 2017 — Rich Hill of the Dodgers pitches 9 no-hit innings against the Pirates at PNC Park - but has nothing to show for it. Carrying a perfect game through 8 innings, Hill loses that bid when the Pirates’ lead-off batter in the 9th, Jordy Mercer hits a hard smash to third that Logan Forsythe fails to field, being charged with an error. Hill retires the next three batters however, but with the Dodgers having failed to score all day, he is back on the mound for the start of the 10th and Josh Harrison hits a walk-off homer that barely reaches the seats, handing him a 1 - 0 loss instead of a place in history.
