July 31:

1957 - Pittsburgh manager Bobby Bragan is ejected for making obscene gestures, but before he leaves for good, he wanders back on the field sipping an orange soda through a straw and offers the umpires a drink.

1962 - The National League rejects Commissioner Ford Frick's proposal to begin interleague play in 1963.

1972 - Dick Allen of the White Sox becomes the seventh player to hit two inside-the-park home runs in one game.

1998 - Cleveland outfielder Mark Whiten pitches the ninth inning against Oakland. He allows a run, but also strikes out Mike Blowers, Miguel Tejada, and Mike Neill, becoming the only player in MLB history (with at least one inning pitched), to get every out with a strikeout.

2004 - The Red Sox trade Nomar Garciaparra to the Cubs in a four-team deal. Boston gets Orlando Cabrera from the Expos and Doug Mientkiewicz from the Twins. In a separate trade, the Red Sox acquire Dave Roberts from the Dodgers.
