1904 January

4th The Highlanders announce plans to play on Sundays at Ridgewood Park on Long Island, but the Brooklyn club objects. Sunday games are legal in Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago, and Cincinnati.

22nd  William H. Yawkey, the 28-year-old heir to a lumber and mining fortune, buys the Detroit Tigers from S. F. Angus for $50,000. New money and Frank Navin’s shrewd management will bring 3 straight pennants to the franchise within a few years.
