July 24, 1968, Hoyt Wilhelm of the Chicago White Sox appears in the 907th game of his career, breaking Cy Young's record for most appearances. The Hall of Famer pitched a scoreless inning of relief and picked up a no-decision in Chicago's 1-0 loss to the Oakland A's.

July 24, 1975, the Kansas City Royals fire Jack McKeon as manager and replace him with Whitey Herzog. Herzog would go on to lead the Royals to three consecutive Western Division titles. Jack McKeon would continue to manage in the bigs, most recently with the Florida Marlins in 2011.
