1955 – The Pittsburgh Pirates name Bobby Bragan as their new field manager, replacing Fred Haney.
Cleveland Indians general manager Frank Lane, notorious for his multiple transactions, sends American League home run king, Rocky Colavito, to the Detroit Tigers for the league’s defending batting champion, Harvey Kuenn. The trade is especially unpopular with Indians fans, who regard Colavito as their most popular player and best hitter.

Vladimir Guerrero is suspended for three regular-season games and Marlin starter Brad Penny for five due to igniting an exhibition game bench-clearing brawl earlier in the week. After being hit in the chest by the Marlins’ starter’s first-inning pitch, the Expo All-Star outfielder, with his bat in his left hand, swung his right fist around Matt Treanor, the Florida catcher trying to restrain him, missing Penny, who retaliated with a punch which also missed its mark.

For the second time in three days, the Pirates and Phillies take a scoreless game into extra innings. Pittsburgh scores the winning run in the bottom of the 11th when Josh Harrison drives in Neil Walker with a two-out single. Earlier in the game, A.J. Burnett and Cole Hamels had locked in a classic duel, but neither pitcher is involved in the decision as the Bucs win their fourth straight, 1 – 0, including three wins by shutout.
