Today in Baseball History:

  • 2001 — Due the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Major League Baseball postpones all games through September 17th. The 91 missed games, the most regular-season contests not played since World War I forced the cancellation of the final month of the 1918 season, are re-scheduled for the week after the regular season was supposed to end, meaning the World Series is likely to extend into November for the first time in history.
  • 2017 — The Indians set a new American League record with their 21st consecutive win when they defeat the Tigers, 5 - 3. Detroit manages to take a 1 - 0 lead against Mike Clevinger in the 1st, but in the bottom of the inning, Jay Bruce hits a three-run homer off Buck Farmer and Cleveland nurses that lead until the end of the game. The win also ties the major league record of 21 consecutive wins, set by the 1935 Chicago Cubs.
