Two remarkable debut pitching performances by Senators’ rookies make the 15-4 loss to Boston a most memorable contest. The game, which features Tom McBride tying a major league record by driving in six runs with a bases-loaded double and triple during the Red Sox’ 12-run fourth inning, sees Joe Cleary, the last major leaguer to be born in Ireland, giving up seven runs on five hits and three walks in his only big league appearance to finish with a career ERA of 189.00, and in mop-up work, veteran Bert Shepard, with an amputated leg as a result of being wounded in WW ll, hurls five 1/3 innings, giving up just one run on just three hits in his only major league appearance.

Wrigley Field celebrates its 100th birthday with a party that includes birthday cakes, the presence of many former Chicago Cubs greats such as Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Andre Dawson, and everyone dressing up in the style of 1914 when the park was known as “Weeghman Park” and was home to the Chicago Chi-Feds of the long-defunct Federal League. Alumni of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, who played here from 1921 to 1970, also take the field before the game. The Cubs don the uniforms of the Feds, while the visiting Diamondbacks impersonate the Kansas City Packers. The visitors come out on top, 7 – 5, as they score 5 runs against Pedro Strop in the top of the 9th to spoil the party.
