Events

  • May 11 - In Detroit it's Ty Cobb day and more than 30,000 pay to see the former Tigers player in his first appearance at Navin Field in a Philadelphia Athletics uniform. With Eddie Collins on base in the first inning, Cobb drives a double into the overflow crowd to send home Collins for the first run of the game as the Athletics would eventually beat the Tigers 6–3.
  • October 8 - In Game Four of the World Series, Babe Ruth's fifth inning home run gives the Yankees a 3-1 lead, but the Pittsburgh Pirates tie the game later. In the ninth inning, Earle Combs walks, Mark Koeing beats out a bunt, and Ruth walks to fill the bases. Two outs later, a wild pitch rolls far enough away for Combs to score the winning run. The Yankees win 4–3 for their second World Championship.
