On September 11, 1928 — In the Yankees’ 5 – 3 win at Yankee Stadium, Ty Cobb makes his last appearance as a batter, popping out against Yankee Hank Johnson to SS Mark Koenig as a pinch hitter in the 9th. Babe Ruth’s two-run clout, off Lefty Grove in the 8th, seals the win for New York. The Bronx Bombers seal the fate of the A’s with their 4th straight win over the Quakers, leaving the Mackmen in 2nd place, 2 1/2 games back.
