  • April 26 - Chicago Cubs outfielder Jack McCarthy ties a major league record by starting three double plays in one game from the outfield.
  • June 29 - Claude Elliott flied out for the third and final out. Graham played the bottom of the ninth at right field but never came to bat, as the Giants won 11–1. That game turned out to be his only appearance in the major leagues. His story was popularized in Shoeless Joe, a novel by W. P. Kinsella, and the subsequent 1989 film Field of Dreams.
  • August 9 - Mistaking her husband for a burglar, the mother of minor league outfielder Ty Cobb shoots and kills him, an incident that will be cited as the reason for Cobb's intense desire to succeed. He will make his major league debut with the Tigers later this month.















  • January 18 - Fergy Malone, 63, Irish catcher and manager in a career that spanned fourteen years from 1871 to 1884.

  • February 13 - Bill Eagan, 35, second baseman for three teams from 1891 to 1898.
  • March 18 - Dick Higham, 53, English right fielder and catcher who led National League in doubles in its 1876 first season, in runs and doubles in 1878; later an umpire, barred from the sport in 1882.
  • April 25 - Jackie Hayes, 43, catcher/outfielder for seven different teams from 1882 to 1990.
  • September 10 - Pete Browning, 44, legendary outfielder who helped to create the Louisville Slugger baseball bat and hit a .341 lifetime for the second-highest mark among right-handed hitters, who also won three batting titles and hit for the cycle twice, in a career that spanned from 1882 to 1894.
  • November 14 - John Connor, 44, pitcher for three teams from 1884-1885.
  • December 6 - Jack Leary, 48, outfielder, infielder, and pitcher for five seasons from 1880 to 1884.
