This Day in Baseball History
On July 24, 1983, the Kansas City Royals and New York Yankees play the famed “Pine Tar Game.” George Brett hits a three-run home run in the ninth inning to give the Royals a 5-4 lead. Umpire Tim McClelland, ruling that Brett’s bat had excessive pine tar, calls him out. American League President Lee MacPhail will later reverse the decision.
