1963 At the age of 43, Early Wynn pitches the first five innings to record his 300th victory when the Indians down the Kansas City A's, 7-4. The win will be the future Hall of Famer's last in the major leagues, and he will finish his 23-year career with a 300-244 record.
1973 At Atlanta Stadium, Hal Breeden of the Expos becomes only the second major leaguer to pinch-hit home runs in both ends of a doubleheader. In 1943, Red Sox player-manager Joe Cronin accomplished the feat in a twin bill against the Philadelphia A's.
1976 The last segment of Connie Mack Stadium, formerly known as Shibe Park, is demolished when the corner tower and its domed cupola of the A's and Phillies' former home is torn down. In 1991, the Deliverance Evangelistic Church, an independent Pentecostal congregation, will construct a church building on the site.
1976 The National League collects its 13th win over the Junior Circuit in the last 14 All-Star Games with a 7-1 victory at Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium. George Foster, one of seven Reds position players on the team, is named the MVP of the Midsummer Classic.
1991 At Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, four Oriole hurlers combined to throw a no-hitter, blanking the A's, 2-0. Starting pitcher Bob Milacki holds the home team hitless for the first six innings, followed by Mike Flanagan, Mark Williamson, and Gregg Olson, who all throw one inning of no-hit ball.
