On June 18, 2015 Ned Yost becomes the winningest manager in team history as the Royals defeat his former team, the Brewers, 3 – 2. Yost’s 411th win at the helm moves him past Hall of Famer Whitey Herzog.
A federal lawsuit brought by a fan kicked out of Yankee Stadium by a police officer allegedly for leaving his seat to use the men’s room during the playing of ‘God Bless America’ is settled with the resident of Queens receiving $10,001 from New York City. The Yankees, who do not have to pay any money, claim patrons have always had freedom of movement, but ushers in previous years have blocked some exits with chains while the patriotic song was played due to complaints that spectators showed a lack of respect by not staying in their seats.

Boston American hurler Jesse Tannehill no-hits the White Sox at Chicago’s South Side Park, 6-0. The Americans will change their name to the Red Sox for the 1907 season. The 30 year-old southpaw issues one one walk, hits a batter and strikes out three en route tossing the third no-hitter in the brief history of the American League.

The Astros get a walk-off win on a ball that barely travels two feet. With runners on first and second and one out in the 11th after the Astros have just tied the score at 5-all against the Athletics, Alex Bregman taps a ball that bounces off home plate, briefly rolls foul, before returning to fair territory. C Jonathan Lucroy picks it up and attempts to tag Bregman, who has not moved yet, but he somehow drops the ball. He then throws to 1B but his relay glances off Bregman’s helmet and past 1B Mark Canha, allowing Kyle Tucker to score the winning run from second base. “I think it was the softest ball anyone’s ever hit,” Bregman reflects after the bizarre play.
