On April 22, 1959, the Chicago White Sox score 11 runs in one inning-with the benefit of only one hit. Chicago puts together the bizarre rally on 10 walks, three errors by the Kansas City A’s, and a hit batsman. The White Sox go on to defeat the A’s, 20-6.
For the first time in major league history, brothers on opposite teams hit home runs in the same game. Boston Red Sox catcher Rick Ferrell homers off his brother Wes Ferrellin the 2nd inning, but the Cleveland Indians pitcher returns the favor as he homers in the 3rd on a pitch called by his sibling. It is the only time that the Ferrell brothers homer in the same game.

The Yankees’ and the Tigers’ outfielders make only two putouts for an American League record which has never been equaled. The National League record for outfield idleness is one chance (Pittsburgh versus Brooklyn on August 26, 1910). Detroit’s George Uhle strikes out 8 in winning, 5 – 4, and dropping the Yanks to 7th place. Hank Johnson (7 innings) and George Pipgras are the New York hurlers.
