  • Pittsburgh beat New York 5 games to 2 games in a play-off.

Events

  • May 25 - Babe Ruth of goes 4-for-4 with three home runs and six runs batted in. It is the last multi-homer game of Ruth's career, with the final home run, the 714th of his career, being the first ball ever hit to clear the roof at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh.[1 ]
  • May 30 - Babe Ruth ends his playing career with the Boston Braves of the National League. A mathematical extrapolation made in 1990 shows that had Ruth been born five years later, in 1900, rather than in 1895 and begun his hitting career in 1919 - at the start of the Lively Ball Era - rather than in 1914 - he would have hit a career 1,115 home runs and garnered a career 4,120 hits including an 80-home run season in 1930 when the baseball was further "juiced."
  • November 26 - The National League assumes control of the bankrupt, Boston Braves franchise after several failed attempts to buy the last-place club. The league takes over only temporarily, until matters can be straightened out.[1 ]
