1936 Indians' teenage pitching phenom Bob Feller sets a new American League record by striking out 17 batters when he two-hits the A's at Shibe Park, 5-2. After the season, the 17 year-old will return to his Van Meter, Iowa home to graduate from high school.
1946 Taking advantage of the shallow position the left fielder is playing due to the Boudreau shift, Ted Williams hits his lone career inside-the-park home run, which proves to be the difference in the Red Sox' 1-0 victory over the Indians. The win clinches Boston's first American League pennant since 1918.
1948 Indian right-hander Don Black, while batting in the second inning of the Cleveland Stadium contest against St. Louis, suffers a cerebral hemorrhage and is rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The 32 year-old hurler will survive, but his major league career is over.
