Events

  • July/August – After the Boston Beaneaters cut some players, they begin the second half slowly and the Cleveland Spiders take the lead. Some fans accuse the Boston club of purposely playing poorly "in order to force a playoff at the end of the season"—that is, to generate extra revenue.[6]
  • August 6 – Jack Stivetts throws a no-hitter for the Boston Beaneaters in an 11–0 victory over the Brooklyn Grooms.
  • August 22 – Louisville Colonels pitcher Ben Sanders hurls a no-hitter in a 6–2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
  • September 21 – Pitcher John Clarkson of the Cleveland Spiders records his 300th career win.
  • October 15 – On the last day of the season, Bumpus Jones of the Cincinnati Reds makes his major league debut with a 7–1 no-hitter against Pittsburgh, becoming the second pitcher to hurl a no-hitter in his first start.
  • October 17 – The first-half champion Boston Beaneaters and second-half champion Cleveland Spiders begin a best-of-nine "World's Championship Series" to determine an overall champion. The first game, pitched by Jack Stivetts for the Beaneaters and Cy Young for the Spiders, ends in a 0–0 tie after 11 innings.
  • October 24 – The Beaneaters win their fifth consecutive game over the Spiders to capture the championship.
  • November 1 – Statistics for the first 154-game season show that Dan Brouthers of the Brooklyn Grooms was the top hitter with a .335 batting average, and Cy Young of the Cleveland Spiders the best pitcher with a 36–11 record and a .766 winning percentage.
  • November 17 – National League magnates conclude a four-day meeting in Chicago where they agree to shorten the 1893 schedule to 132 games and drop the split season schedule (the league's next split season would be 1981). They also pledge to continue to reduce player salaries and other team expenses.
