1906-1907 Off Season

The winter meeting of the MLB had more to discuss this year as the Boston Beaneaters were sold to a new owner. The new owner asked for a name change and this was granted after a unanimous vote of the league owners. They would be called the Boston Doves for the 1907 season. The rest of the off season saw the normal trades and first year player draft processes as no rule changes were made.

Notable Retirements for the end of 1906.
1B Jake Beckley
LF Jesse Burkett
3B Lave Cross
C Jack Doyle
SS Hughie Jennings
RF Ollie Pickering
Pitcher Amos Rusie
C Bob Wood
Pitcher Ned Garvin
Pitcher Pink Hawley
Pitcher Jim Hughes
Pitcher Frank Killen
Pitcher Jack W Taylor

Last season saw no inductions to the hall of fame. This year the review committee had a much bigger and better class to review. This led to 2 players being added to the hall of fame for 1906. These 2 players were Jesse Burkett and Amos Rusie.

1907 Season

The 1907 season in the MLB started the same way as the past couple of years. There were no rule changes and only the NL's Boston team changed name. The league continued to grow in popularity as the fans grew to know the teams and the great players.

The 10th of May was a major day in the career of the Philadelphia Athletics batter, Nap Lajoie. He made it to his 2000th hit in his career.

It has been a long ten years for Noodles Hahn of the Cincinnati Reds but he was rewarded on the 31st of May with the 200th win of his career.

May was the month to be pitching for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 8th of May saw Red Ames step up and deliver his second no hitter of his short career. Sadly he lost the game after going 8 innings for no hits, 2 walks and 3 errors.

Not to be outdone, Rube Waddell of the Pirates stepped up to the mound on the 16th of May and found a groove that every pitcher wants. He pitched magnificently in the 2-0 win getting no hits or walks over the 9 innings. He was let down for the perfect game in the 7th inning as teammate Lefty Davis allowed 1 opposition batter to make base on an error.

Jesse Tannehill of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitched his way to the 200 win club on the 26th of June.

After getting his 200th win Jesse Tannehill continued to pitch well and managed to get a no hitter on the 10th of July. He gave up a walk in the 8th inning to get the closest to a perfect game the league has seen yet.

In Season Trades

June
Cleveland Naps swap Pitcher Rip Ragan and SS Foley White with New York Highlanders LF Clyde Engle.

July
New York Highlanders swap Pitcher Nick Altrock and C Bunny Madden with Boston Doves 2B Ivan Howard, SS Baldy Louden and 1B Fred Nehring.
St Louis Browns swap Pitcher Tully Sparks and SS Roy Corhan with Washington Senators SS Henry Scharnweber and LF Mickey Corcoran.
Boston Doves swap SS Jack Barnett with Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Rex Ames.
Cincinnati Reds swap CF Phil Geier with Pittsburgh Pirates Pitcher Dad Hale and C Jim Stephens.
Cleveland Naps swap Pitcher Harry Rush and C Tubby Spencer with St. Louis Browns C Jimmy Archer and 3B Mickey Corcoran.
New York Highlanders swap LF Patsy Dougherty with New York Giants C Phil Ketter and Pitcher Charlie Hartman.

The 1907 season saw lots of wonderful play on the diamonds of the MLB but both leagues struggled to have a pennant race that fans could invest in. In the American League the Detroit Tigers took their second pennant by 8 games from the Philadelphia Athletics. The Tigers held this lead for most of the second half of the season as the Athletics just could not close the gap. The fans in the National League also had a similar pennant run but this time they had different teams to cheer on. The New York Giants were the ones to win the pennant for the second time. They held a 6 game lead at the end over the Philadelphia Phillies. This lead fluctuated over the year but was never lower than 4 games after the first of August.

The AL batting crown was awarded to Philadelphia Athletics star, Nap Lajoie. Lajoie reclaimed his title after a couple of years without it after posting a .346 batting average. William Harris of the Washington Senators took the home run title with 9 long balls during the year. Socks Seybold of the Philadelphia Athletics won the RBI chase with a total of 79 over the season. On the pitching front the AL saw a return to form for CY Young of the Boston Americans as he became the ERA leader in the league again this year. He had an ERA of 1.40. Ed Walsh of the St. Louis Browns continued to play well as he took the most wins on 26 for the year. He also won the strikeout contest as he posted 184 victims over the season.

In the National League there was a new batting champion crowned. Elmer Flick of the Philadelphia Phillies took the title as he posted a batting average of .341 over the season. Harry Lumley of the Pittsburgh Pirates took the home run crown as he had 10 hits over the fence during the year. Red Murray of the Philadelphia Phillies just pipped Elmer Flick to the RBI title with 91 to his credit for the year. Walter Johnson was in only his first season with the St. Louis Cardinals but he proved he could be a star of the league as his ERA of 1.47 was the best in the National League. Charles Bender of the Boston Doves and Christy Mathewson of the New York giants both took 25 wins over the season. Rube Waddell continued to be the strikeout king with a league leading 290 victims.

1908 Season

The 1908 season got underway to increased fan interest and a steady league. The play was strong as the established stars vied with the new recruits to be the best.

May saw Honus Wagner pick up career hit number 2000 as he continued to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates team.

Rube Waddell of the Pittsburgh Pirates continued to collect the wins as he reached number 200 for his career in July.

In season transactions

July
St Louis Cardinals swap pitcher Rube Vickers and Pitcher Jim Scott with Washington Senators 1B Tom Jones and SS Roy Corhan.
Detroit Tigers swap Pitcher Ed Siever with Philadelphia Athletics 2B Enos Kirkpatrick.
Washington Senators swap 1B George Stovall with New York Highlanders 1B Howard Wakefield and Pitcher Cy Barger.
Detroit Tigers swap Pitcher Bob Spade with Cincinnati Reds 3B Candy Jim Taylor and pitcher Buck Stanley.
Detroit Tigers swap RF John Titus with Washington Senators Pitcher George Zackert and Pitcher Cy Barger.

The pennant races turned out to be very different for each league. The NL pennant race was the one that kept the fans interested as the Philadelphia Phillies and Cincinnati Reds pushed it all the way to the end of September before a winner was found. In the end the Philadelphia Phillies took the NL pennant by 6 games from the Cincinnati Reds. On the American League side the pennant race was over by the end of July as the St. Louis Browns stretched a lead of 14 games that was never challenged. They ended up winning their 3rd AL pennant by 16 games from the Philadelphia Athletics.

The National League had a new batting champion this year as Ty Cobb came to the fore for the Boston Doves. He hit for an average of .340 to just pip Honus Wagner to the title. Ed Konetchy of the Cincinnati Reds and Harry Lumley of the Pittsburgh Pirates both hit 7 home runs to take the home run title. Harry Lumley also won the RBI race alongside John Hummell of the Cincinnati Reds with 79 RBI's each. Irv Young of the Brooklyn Superbas had the best ERA over the season in the NL on 1.10. The most wins in the NL went to 3 players on a total of 24. Rube Waddell of the Pittsburgh Pirates continued to lead the Strikeout list on 263.

The American League saw Cy Seymour of the Philadelphia Athletics take the AL batting crown on an average of .324. William Jones of the Cleveland Naps won the home run chase with a league best of 9. Jake Stahl of the grabbed 69 RBI's for the struggling Boston Red Sox team to be the best in the AL. Howie Camnitz of the Washington Senators had the best ERA of all Starters in the AL as he put up a number of 1.25. Charlie E Smith led the St. Louis Cardinals charge to the AL pennant with 27 wins. His teammate Ed Walsh gained the most Strikeouts in the AL on 190.

1909 Season

The 1909 season is played out to a background of expanding crowds and settled teams as the league continues to strengthen its grip on baseball.

The 28th of April was a big day for Nap Rucker as he pitched masterfully from the mound for the Philadelphia Phillies. The 4-0 win saw him post his first no hitter of his career with only 4 walks and 2 errors.

Chick Stahl of the Boston Red Sox has worked hard his whole career and the 25th of May saw that finally pay off. He collected his 2000th hit in his career.

The 12th of June saw Rube Waddell back to his best as he picked up his second no hitter of his career. He pitched a beautiful game for the Pittsburgh Pirates with only 4 walks to mar his outing.

Jack J Powell of the St. Louis Cardinals is enjoying a wonderful season with his side and that has led to him claiming his 200th win of his career.

August the 13th was a day to remember for Sam Leever of the Cincinnati Reds. He came into the game late that day and made save number 8 to equal the record for a single season.

Not to be outdone Libe Washburn of the Philadelphia Athletics then worked his hardest to also achieve that feat on the 27th August to jointly hold the record for number of saves in a season. Washburns 8th save of the season also saw him take his career tally of saves to 30 to lead the league in this particular skill.

Noodles Hahn of the Cincinnati Reds has had an outstanding career and the 14th of August just added to this as he won his 250th game of baseball.

Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants has spent his whole career in the MLB and the 8th of September saw him collect win number 200 in the league.

Nap Lajoie of the Philadelphia Athletics has been the star draw for the first 9 years of the MLB and the 13th of September saw him collect hit number 2500 of his career.

Pittsburgh Pirates swap Pitcher Alex Pearson and 2B Larry Gardner with New York Highlanders C Bill Carrigan.

The 1909 season came to a close with the fans looking at 2 new teams at the top of the MLB. The American League was the one to watch if you wanted a close battle. Right up until the start of August all 8 teams were only separated by 10 games with the pennant up for grabs by any of them. In the end it was the New York Highlanders that proved the strongest over the closing stretch as they beat the Chicago White Sox to the American League title by 5 games. In the National League it was one team all the way this year. The St. Louis Cardinals boasted the strongest pitching rotation in the MLB and it showed as they took the National League title by 18 games from the Cincinnati Reds. At some points during the season the Cardinals lead was up at 25 games as the rest of the league just fell away.

In the National League it was St. Louis all the way for pitching as Walter Johnson showed why he will be a force in the league for years to come. In only his 3rd year in the league he has pushed all others aside to take the triple crown of ERA, Wins and Strikeout titles. His ERA over the year was at 1.30, He won 30 games with only 8 losses and struck out 245 victims. Ty Cobb of the Boston Doves proved to be the best batter in the National League again this year as he won his second NL batting crown. He had a batting average of .363 over the season to lead the league in hits. Albert Durham of the Philadelphia Phillies is a new name on the lips of National League fans as he took the home run crown with 9 long balls over the season. Birdie Cree of the Boston Doves bought home the most batters as he took the RBI title with 77.

In the American League the batting averages were a bit suppressed as the fight for the pennant put stress on all the players. Tris Speaker ended up with the batting crown in the AL with his batting average of .319. Tim Jordan of the St. Louis Cardinals was the best slugger this year in the American League as his 10 home runs led the MLB. Zack Wheat of the Chicago White Sox had the most RBI's in the American League with 82. On the pitching front Howie Camnitz of the Washington Senators continued to show his skills as he had the best ERA in the American League on 1.63. M.Smith of the Detroit Tigers picked up the most wins over the year with 25 while Ed Walsh of the St. Louis Browns took the most strikeouts on 231.
