Regular season

  • George Brett became a three decade batting champ by winning the 1990 American League Batting Title.
  • July 11, 1990: In a game against the Baltimore Orioles, Bo Jackson performed his famous "wall run", when he caught a ball approximately 2-3 strides away from the wall. As he caught the ball at full tilt, Jackson looked up and noticed the wall and began to run up the wall, one leg reaching higher as he ascended. He ran along the wall almost parallel to the ground, and came down with the catch, to avoid impact and the risk of injury from the fence.
  • August 31, 1990: Ken Griffey, Sr. and Ken Griffey, Jr. of the Seattle Mariners made history by being the first father and son to play in a game together. This historic game was played against the Royals.
