On August 8, 1940 — 1940 – At Fenway Park‚ 27-year-old Tiny Bonham makes his major league debut for the Yankees and loses‚ 4 – 1‚ to Fritz Ostermueller. Bonham‚ brought up to replace the sore-armed Lefty Gomez‚ will still end the season at 9-3‚ complete 10 games‚ and toss three shutouts. His ERA will be 1.90 but Bob Feller will lead the American League at 2.61, although some will consider Bonham the title holder.
