By Oliver Connolly, Editor-In-Chief

A night in which there were fourteen pitching changes and one game and Bryce Harper was angry at his own fans… again. What a wonderful Monday of baseball.

Image of the night

On this day in baseball history

1916:

Twenty-three fans attending the game against the Yankees at soaked Shibe Park, the smallest crowd in American League history, witness A’s switch-hitter Wally Schang become the first player in major league history to homer from both sides of the plate in the same game. The feat, not well publicized because reporters thought the heavy rain would postpone the game and did not attend the contest, will not be accomplished again in the Junior Circuit until 1940.

Fun fact alert!

Yoenis Cespedes in September: 13-27, 5 HR, 8 RBI, 11R, BB.
