On this Date in Tigers History
- 1982 — The Pirates purchase the contract if first baseman Richie Hebner from the Tigers — and it bummed me out.
- 1968 — Denny McLain is 16-0 on the road after blanking the Red Sox 4-0 in Boston. Bill Freehan is hit by a pitch in three consecutive plate appearances, tying a major-league record. He’ll be hit a record-tying 24 times in 1968.
- 1915 — In the second game of a doubleheader, Tigers rookie Bernie Boland no-hits Cleveland through 26 batters before Ben Paschal singles, his first and only hit of the year. Boland wins, 3-1.
- 1903 — Toledo native George Mullin, pitching for the Tigers, helps the attendance today (6,000) as the Tigers take on New York in a Sunday game in Toledo. Mullin is racked for eight runs, but Detroit scores 12, led by the hitting of
Sam Crawford, who is 5 for 6.
