Events

July 13 - Philadelphia Phillies left-fielder Ed Delahanty becomes the second Major Leaguer to hit four home runs in a game, two of them being inside-the-park home runs. It wasn't enough, as the Phillies lose to the Chicago Colts, 9-8. He is the only member of the "four home runs in a game" club to have an inside-the-park home run as part of his feat and he is the first player to do so in a losing effort.
