- 2002 — The Tigers shut out the Royals, 3-0, in one hour and 41 minutes, the fastest nine-inning game in the major leagues since 1984.
- 2001 — The Yankees edge the Tigers, 6-5, despite an eighth inning moon shot by Juan Encarnacion, off Ramiro Mendoza, that lands in the second row of the empty blue bleacher seats in left centerfield. It’s believed to be the first ball hit into that area since Yankee Stadium was remodeled in 1976.
