Tom Seaver of the Chicago White Sox beats the New York Yankees 4-1 and becomes the 17th major league pitcher to win 300 games. Seaver gives up just 6 hits, all singles to the Yankees.

Prior to the game, the Yankees honor Phil Rizzuto by retiring their former player and current broadcaster’s uniform #10. The ‘Scooter’, known for the expression ‘Holy Cow’, is knocked over in a pregame ceremony by a fitting gift from the team, a cow wearing a halo.
