On June 13 1971, Alex Johnson accuses his Angel teammate Chico Ruiz of waving a gun at him in the clubhouse while the game is being played, an eventual 5-2 loss to Washington at Anaheim Stadium.

1884 – At the annual meeting of the minor-league Northwest League, the first-place Toledo Blue Stockings are declared the league champion for 1883. But because Toledo has moved from the NWL to the major league American Association for 1884, the NWL pennant is awarded to the second-place Saginaw Greys.
