MLB Statistical Leaders

Major League Baseball final standings


*January 10 - Luis Aparicio, Don Drysdale and Harmon Killebrew are elected to the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America.

*March 8 - Shortstop Pee Wee Reese and catcher Rick Ferrell are elected to the Hall of Fame by the Special Veterans Committee. Reese hit .269 in 16 seasons with the Dodgers in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, while Ferrell batted .281 with 28 home runs in 18 seasons for the Browns, Red Sox and Senators.

*April 7 - Jack Morris of the Detroit Tigers no-hits the Chicago White Sox 4-0 at Comiskey Park, in a game televised on NBC. The no-hitter ties Ken Forsch's 1979 game as the earliest, calendar-wise, that a no-hitter has been pitched.

*April 13 - Twenty-one years to the day that he collected his first Major League hit, Pete Rose collects the 4,000th hit of his career; only the second player (Ty Cobb) to ever do so.

*May 4 - Dave Kingman of the Oakland Athletics pops a ball up that never comes down. Playing the Minnesota Twins at the Metrodome, Kingman's pop fly goes through the roof of the stadium. On May 1, 2004, Kingman appears with the catcher for the Twins that day, Mickey Hatcher and watches as he fails to catch a ball dropped from the roof.

*May 8 to May 9 - The Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers face off in a game that refuses to end. Started on the 8th, the game is suspended after a 3-3 tie and seventeen innings. When the game is resumed the next day, both teams manage to score three runs in the 21st inning, and is only ended when Harold Baines slams a home run in the bottom of the 25th inning to end the 8 hour, six minute marathon; the longest game, by time, in Major League history. Tom Seaver, the last pitcher available for the White Sox, earns the win, and then goes on to start the regularly scheduled game that day, earning a second win on one day for a starting pitcher.

*June 23 - At Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs and rival St. Louis Cardinals locked up in what would be a tight game. In the bottom of the ninth inning, trailing 9-8, the Cubs' Ryne Sandberg hit a solo-home run off of Bruce Sutter. The Cardinals regained the lead in the tenth inning 11-9, but Sandberg hit another home run off Sutter in the bottom of the frame, this time with one runner on base and two outs. The Cubs went on to win the game 12-11 in the following inning, and eventually won the National League East. Sandberg won the MVP Award this season, with this game as a key contribution. In addition to Sandberg's performance, St. Louis outfielder Willie McGee would hit for the cycle.

*July 4 - Phil Niekro of the New York Yankees records his 3,000th career strikeout. He is the second to do so on the Fourth of July, after Nolan Ryan in 1980.

*July 10 - At Candlestick Park, on the 50th anniversary of Carl Hubbell's legendary five consecutive strikeouts in the 1934 All-Star Game, National League pitchers Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden combine to fan six batters in a row for a new All-Star Game record in the NL's 3–1 triumph over the American League. After Valenzuela whiffs Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson and George Brett in the 4th inning, Gooden, the youngest All-Star ever at age 19, fans Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon and Alvin Davis in the 5th inning. Gary Carter is named the Game MVP.

*July 21 - Roger Maris has his number 9, and Elston Howard has his number 32 retired by the New York Yankees.

*July 26 - Pete Rose of the Montreal Expos tied Ty Cobb on the career singles list, No. 3,052, with a base hit in the eighth inning in a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

*August 12 - Fulton County Stadium sees a series of beanings, attempted beanings, and two bench clearing fist fights, the second of which sees fans spill out onto the field. Nineteen Braves and San Diego Padres are ejected. Dick Williams, manager of the Padres is fined $10,000 and suspended ten days, while Braves manager Joe Torre is suspended for three games.

*August 16 - It is announced that the Cincinnati Reds are trading Tom Lawless to the Montréal Expos so that Pete Rose can return to the Reds. Rose is also named player-manager.

*September 17 - Reggie Jackson becomes the 13th player in major league history to record 500 home runs. No. 500 comes against Kansas City Royals pitcher Bud Black. Jackson's home run occurs exactly 17 years after he got his first career hit.

*September 17 - Rookie pitcher Dwight Gooden of the New York Mets strikes out 16 Philadelphia Phillies in a 2-1 loss at Philadelphia. After fanning 16 Pittsburgh Pirates five days earlier, Gooden ties a major league record with 32 strikeouts in two consecutive games.

*September 18 - The Detroit Tigers clinch the American League eastern Division, becoming the fourth team in history to hold first place from day one of the season (joining the 1923 New York Giants, the 1927 New York Yankees, and 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers).

*September 19 - Pete Rose collects his 100th hit of the season, becoming the first player in Major League history to collect that many hits in 22 consecutive seasons. It happens to be his 725th career double, which establishes a new National League record.

*September 20 - Tim Lollar's three-run home run caps a 5-4 come-from-behind win for the San Diego Padres over the San Francisco Giants, clinching the very first division title for the Padres.

*September 23 - A 4-1 win over the New York Yankees gives the Detroit Tigers 100 wins for the season, and gives Tigers' manager Sparky Anderson the honor of being the first manager in history to guide teams to 100-win seasons in both leagues.

*September 24 - On the fifteenth anniversary of the Chicago Cubs being eliminated from the 1969 pennant chase, the Cubs' Rick Sutcliffe pitches a 4-1 two-hit complete game over the Pittsburgh Pirates in Three Rivers Stadium to clinch the National League Eastern Division title for the Cubs; the first post-season appearance for the team since 1945.

*September 30 - Mike Witt of the California Angels, holds on for a 1-0 win over the Texas Rangers; the 11th perfect game since 1901.

*October 14 - Kirk Gibson blasts two upper-decks home runs at Tiger Stadium in Game Five of the 1984 World Series, to lead the Detroit Tigers to an 8-4 victory over the San Diego Padres and its first World Championship since 1968. Alan Trammel is selected the Series MVP.
