  • 1949 — Dom DiMaggio’s 34-game hitting streak is on the line against Vic Raschi and the Yankees. Hitless in his first four at bats, Dom hits a sinking line drive in the 8th that his brother Joe catches at his shoetops. The Red Sox win, 6 - 3, to move 5 1/2 games behind the Yankees. Dom had started his streak after going hitless against Raschi.
  • 2002 — Barry Bonds joins Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron as the only players ever to hit 600 home runs in the major leagues.
