July 14, 1916 – Ernie Koob of the St. Louis Browns went the distance in a 17-inning 0-0 tie with the Boston Red Sox. Carl Mays went the first fifteen innings for the Red Sox and Dutch Leonard finished.

1956 – Mel Parnell of the Boston Red Sox pitched a no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox for a 4-0 victory at Fenway Park. This would be the first no-hitter for the Sox since 1923 when Howard Ehmke would blank the Philadelphia A’s.

1967 – Eddie Mathews of the Astros hit his 500th home run off San Francisco’s Juan Marichal at Candlestick Park. Houston beat the Giants 8-6. Matthews would become only the 7th member of the 500 Club.

Hammerin’ Hank Aaron collected his 500th home run off Mike McCormick on July 14th 1968 as the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2. As Curt Simmons would say “Trying to throw a fastball past Hank Aaron is like trying to sneak a sunrise past a rooster”.

On July 14th 1970 – Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds scored on Jim Hickman’s 12th-inning single after bowling over Cleveland’s Ray Fosse at home plate to give the National League a 5-4 victory over the American League at Riverfront Stadium. The collision is often blamed for Fosse’s shortened career, but the following year Fosse was again an All Star Catcher and also won a Gold Glove.
