Events

  • April 20: After retiring the first 26 Oakland Athleticsbatters, Brian Holman loses a perfect game when Ken Phelps hits a home run in a eventual 6-1 Seattle Mariners win.
  • October 20: The talk of an Oakland Athletics dynasty is proven premature, as the Cincinnati Reds beat Oakland 2–1 to complete one of the most stunning sweeps in World Series history. Series MVP José Rijo (2–0, 0.59 ERA) retires the last 20 batters he faces to give the Reds their first World Championship since 1976. Not joining the celebration at the end is Eric Davis, who ruptures his kidney diving for a ball during the game and is taken to the hospital. It will take Davis several years to fully recover.
  • December 6: At Leland's auction house in New York City, Shoeless Joe Jackson's signature is sold for $23,100, the most money ever paid for a 19th- or 20th-century signature. Jackson, who could not read or write, copied the signature from one written out by his wife. The signature, which is resold within hours, was cut from an unknown document.

Mass of a Baseball (274 words)
Baseball was invented around the last quarter of the 1800s.
The weight of a baseball must be between 5 and 5 1/4 ounces (142 to 149 grams) and its circumference from 9 to 9 1/4 inches (22.9 to 23.5 centimeters).
From my experiment of weighing a baseball, the result came out to be 142.54 grams which fits within the accepted range of 142 to 149 grams.
