1923 At League Park, the Indians complete a 31-game homestand in which every American League team pays a visit. After a slow start, the Tribe finishes with a 16-15 record during their month at home.
1999 Cleanup batter Manny Ramirez, listed as the designated hitter in the lineup posted by Indians' manager Mike Hargrove, plays in the field in the top of the first inning, mistakenly taking Alex Ramirez's position in right field. The blunder will result in the Tribe losing a DH during their 4-3 loss to Toronto at Jacobs Field.
2007 Tulsa Drillers' first-base coach Mike Coolbaugh instantly dies when struck in the head by a line drive in the top of the ninth inning at Dickey-Stephens Field in North Little Rock, home of the minor league Arkansas Travelers. The 35-year-old dad, who leaves behind a pregnant wife and two small sons, becomes the second on-the-field fatality in professional baseball history.

(Ed. Note: In 1920, Indians shortstop Ray Chapman died after being struck in the head with a fastball thrown by Yankee right-hander Carl Mays.)
