Events

  • April 28 - Only hours after being swept by the Chicago White Sox in a three-game series at Comiskey Park, the New York Yankees fire Yogi Berra as manager 16 games into the season. Yankee owner George Steinbrenner does not fire Berra personally, but instead dispatches general manager Clyde King to deliver the news for him. Berra will be replaced by Billy Martin, whom he had replaced as manager after the 1983 season; this will be the fourth of Martin's five stints as Yankee skipper. Berra vows after the slight to never again set foot in Yankee Stadium as long as Steinbrenner owns the team.
  • June 11 - In a 26-7 romp over the New York Mets, Von Hayes of the Philadelphia Phillies becomes the first player in MLB history to hit two home runs in the first inning of a game. Hayes led off the bottom of the first with a homer, then hit a grand slam later in the frame. Those were the only two home runs hit in the high-scoring affair.
  • July 4-5 - In a bizarre game at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 16-13 in a 19-inning game that featured Keith Hernandez hitting for the cycle, and the Braves coming back to tie the game twice in extra innings, most notably in the bottom of the 18th. Pitcher Rick Camp, a career .074 hitter batting only because the Braves had no position players left, shockingly hit a solo home run in the 18th to re-tie the game at 11-11. At the end of the game, even though it was July 5, 3:15 am, the Braves went ahead and shot off their scheduled Fourth of July post-game fireworks for the fans who endured to the end.
  • August 6 and 7 - All parks go dark for a brief strike. All missed games are made up before the season ends.
  • September 8 - Pete Rose inserts himself into the Cincinnati Reds' lineup as a late addition, and picks up two singles, the second of which gives him 4,191 hits in his career, tying him with Ty Cobb for the career record. Being that the game is at Wrigley Field, the game is eventually called because of darkness after nine innings, resulting in a rare 5-5 tie.
