April

  • April 18 – New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Aaron proposes a new 78-acre (320,000 m2) tract in Flushing Meadows as a site for a new National League baseball stadium. The plan, submitted to mayor Robert Wagner, includes a 50,000-seat stadium with a plastic dome to be built by the Parks Department.
  • April 21 – In the first inning of a 3-1 loss to the Milwaukee Braves at Milwaukee County Stadium, the Cincinnati Redlegs are involved in a bizarre play. With Don Hoak on second and Gus Bell on first, Wally Post hits a ground ball to Milwaukee shortstop Johnny Logan. Hoak breaks up a potential double play by fielding the ball himself and flipping it to Logan. Hoak is called out for interference (contact with a batted ball before a fielder touched it), but Post is given a single on the play. The day before, Johnny Temple let Bell's ground ball hit him with the same result, Temple being called out for interference and Bell being awarded a single. The two incidents prompt league presidents Warren Giles and Will Harridge to jointly announce a rule change that declared both the runner and batter out if the runner intentionally interfered with a batted ball, with no runners allowed to advance.
  • April 22 – John Irvin Kennedy becomes the first black player in Philadelphia Phillies history, entering the game in the top of the 8th inning as a pinch runner for Solly Hemus.
  • April 24

May

  • May 7 – Two batters into the game at Cleveland Stadium, Cleveland Indian pitcher Herb Score is hit in the face by a line drive by New York Yankee Gil McDougald, the ball breaking numerous bones in Score's face and leaving him quite bloodied. McDougald vows to quit if Score is blinded as a result. Score regains his 20/20 vision, but will miss the remainder of the 1957 season. With Bob Lemon pitching the rest of the way, the Indians defeat the Yankees 2-1.
  • May 10 – Mayor George Christopher of San Francisco confers with Horace Stoneham on a possible shift of the New York Giants franchise to the West Coast.
  • May 28 – The National League approves the proposed moves of the Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers to the West Coast, provided both clubs make their request before October 1 and move at the same time.
  • May 29 – New York City mayor Robert Wagner says he plans to confer with the Giants and Dodgers about the proposed move, but that the city will not be "blackjacked" into anything.
  • May 30 – Walter O'Malley rejects an offer from a Queens group to buy the Dodgers.

June

  • June 9 – Ernie Banks hit his 100th career home run, helping the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-3.

  • November 12 – Frank Lane resigns as general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals and is replaced by Bing Devine.
  • November 20 – Shigeo Nagashima, a slugger star at Rikkyo University, signs with the Yomiuri Giants for a record bonus of $69,000. He will go on to have one of the great careers in Nippon Pro Baseball.
  • November 22:
    • Mickey Mantle barely edges Ted Williams, 233 to 209, to win the American League MVP Award. Mantle batted .365 with 34 home runs for the first-place New York Yankees, while Williams, of the third-place Boston Red Sox, led the AL with a .388 average and 38 home runs, as well as a stunning .731 slugging percentage. Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey fumes at the news, noting that two Chicago writers listed Williams in the ninth and tenth places on their ballots.
    • After 22 seasons of work, Larry Goetz is unwillingly 'retired' as a National League umpire by league's president Warren Giles. The discharged arbitrator had been critical of the Senior Circuit because of the league's refusal to include umpires in the players' pension fund.
  • November 26 – Yoshio Tanaka, an American citizen of Japanese descent, is named manager of the Hanshin Tigers. Tanaka is the first American to manage a Japanese ML team.
  • November 28 – Milwaukee Braves pitcher Warren Spahn, who posted a 21-11 record with 111 strikeouts and a 3.49 ERA, wins the MLB Cy Young Award almost unanimously. His only competition for the title is Dick Donovan of the Chicago White Sox (16-6, 88, 3.35), who receives one vote. Only one pitcher is selected each season for this prestigious pitching award until 1967, when each league will name a winner.
  • November 29 – New York City Mayor Robert F. Wagner, Jr. forms a four-member committee to find a replacement team for the Dodgers and Giants in NYC.
