At Cleveland's League Park, John Clarkson of the Spiders beats the Pirates 3-2 to become the fifth pitcher in major league history to record his 300th victory. The 31 year-old right-hander will compile a 328-178 record during his 12 year Hall of Fame career in the big leagues.
Connie Mack announces he will leave the Pirates to manage the minor-league Milwaukee Brewers of the Western League. The light-hitting catcher retires as a full time player to accept the deal, which includes twenty-five percent of the club, a precursor to his 54-year reign as the owner of the American League A's.
Barney Friberg catches an inning in a 9-7 loss against Pittsburgh, the only position on the field the Phillies utility man hadn't yet played this season. The achievement will be noted in a Ripley's Believe or Not cartoon.
