Today

1925 – Cleveland’s Tris Speaker got his 3,000th career hit, off Tom Zachary, in a 2-1 loss to the Washington Senators.

1939 – The first baseball game on television was broadcast by W2XBS, an experimental station run by NBC in New York. Bill Stern handled the play-by-play as Princeton beat Columbia, 2-1, in 10 innings.

1945 – For the fourth time in four days, every American League game in the country was postponed by rain.

1961 – Roger Maris hit his first home run of the season at Yankee Stadium (fourth overall) on his way to a record 61.

1963 – Don Nottebart pitched Houston’s first no-hitter as the Colt .45s defeated the visiting Philadelphia Phillies 4-1.
