Chicago Colts (Cubs) Jimmy Ryan led a 4-3 victory over Cincinnati Reds pitcher Noodles Hahn with the twentieth leadoff home run of his career.
The National League rules committee stated that: a single umpire (not two) would work each game, a balk rule would allow only a base runner to advance (not the batter), and a change in the shape of home plate to five-sided would be instituted to eliminate the corners of the old one-foot by one-foot plate.
On July 7th, Boston Braves hurler Kid Nichols tossed his three-hundredth career victory, beating the Chicago Colts (Cubs) 11-4. The pinnacle victory came two months before his thirty-first birthday, making him the youngest pitcher ever to reach win number three-hundred.
