  • June 2 – The Cleveland Bronchos commit 6 errors in one inning against the Baltimore Orioles. It will be the most errors by a team in one inning for the entire 20th century.
  • June 3 – Mike O'Neill of the St. Louis Cardinals connects for the first ever pinch-hit grand slam home run.
  • June 15 – Future major leaguer Nig Clarke goes 8-8, all home runs, as his Corsicana team blasts Texarkana 51-3 in a Texas League game. Corsicana collects 53 hits, including 21 homers, in playing the game in a park where right field is only 210' from home plate.
  • June 30 – The Cleveland Bronchos becomes the first American League team to hit three consecutive home runs in one inning, as Nap Lajoie, Charlie Hickman and Bill Bradley connect in the sixth off St. Louis Browns pitcher Jack Harper, with all the homers landing in the left field bleachers at St. Louis. The last two come on the first pitch thrown, while Cleveland wins the game 17–2. The feat was last done in the National League on May 10, 1894.



  • August 13 – Harry Davis of the Philadelphia Athletics steals second base with teammate Dave Fultz on third in an attempt to score Fultz. When he draws no throw, Davis then steals back to first base on the next pitch. He then steals second again, this time drawing the throw, scoring Fultz.
  • August 14 – Tommy Leach of the Pittsburgh Pirates hit only 13 home runs over the fence in a career of over 2100 games. On this day, however, he does it twice against the Boston Beaneaters. Leach will go on to win the National League home run crown in 1902 with 6.
  • August 18 – Hal O'Hagan, of the Rochester Broncos, turns professional baseball's first unassisted triple play against Jersey City in a minor league game.
  • August 19 – Kip Selbach of the Baltimore Orioles ties a record by committing 5 errors from the outfield in one game.



  • October 2 – The Boston Beaneaters defeat the New York Giants 2-1 in 14 innings. The game produces 8 runners thrown out attempting to steal, 3 pick-offs, 3 double-plays and 2 runners thrown out at the plate.
