On June 16 1938 —  At Sportsman’s Park, the St. Louis Browns walk Red Sox star Jimmie Foxx all six times he comes to bat. The Browns’ decision to pitch carefully to Foxx does not prevent the Red Sox from winning the game, 12 – 8. Being intentionally walked six times in a nine-inning game, Foxx sets an American League record and matches the mark set by Walt Wilmot in the National League in 1891.
