  • August 15 – Detroit Tigers pitcher Virgil Trucks hurled his second no-hitter of the season, a 1–0 over the host New York Yankees. Previously, Trucks held the Washington Senators without a hit on May 15. Besides, Trucks is one of five pitchers to throw two no-hitters in a season, being the others Johnny Vander Meer (1938), Allie Reynolds (1951), Nolan Ryan (1973) and Roy Halladay (2010), as one of his no-hitters came in the postseason.[1]
  • August 30 – Arky Vaughan, Hall of Fame shortstop, nine-time All-Star and MVP Award winner, was drowned in a boat accident at Lost Lake in Lakeville, California. He was 40 year old. During a 14-year career with the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Brooklyn Dodgers between 1932 and 1948, Vaughan hit a combined .318 batting average and 2,103 base hits. Overall, he posted 11 seasons with a .300 or more average, while his lifetime average of .318 is second only to Honus Wagner's .329 for a shortstop. His most productive came in 1935, when he led the National League with a .385 average and was named MVP player. Additionally, he topped the league three times in runs, triples and walks, posting a career .406 on-base percentage with 937 walks, while striking out only 276 times in 6,622 at bats. Besides being a solid hitter, Vaughan was a better than average fielder, having led the league three times in assists, twice in putouts, and once each in total chances and double plays.[2]
