TRIVIA –
Kansas City Packers pitcher Chief Johnson was served with legal papers in the second inning, enjoining him from pitching for Kansas City for the rest of the opener; John Potts, who recorded the first hit at then-Weeghman Park, had only 27 career hits, the fewest for a player who recorded the first hit at an active park; Chicago Whales catcher Art Wilson hit the first two home runs at the park in his first two at-bats; The first no-hitter thrown at Wrigley Field was a double no-hitter for nine innings between Cincinnati’s Fred Toney and Chicago’s Hippo Vaughn before the Reds recorded the first hit in the 10th inning; The first grand slam was hit by Rollie Zeider, who hit only five home runs in his nine-year career, and was the only homer he hit over the fence on the fly (the other four were either inside-the-park homers or bounced, which counted as homers at the time).
