Coquitlam Little League has a long tradition of success and player development while staying true to Little League roots. One of the only programs that offer regular season opportunities for 4-16 year olds and postseason (all-star) opportunities for 8-16 year olds, Coquitlam regularly graduates players to College, University and other competitive leagues.

|1915||Cubs right-handed reliever George Washington Zabel, called into the game with two outs in the bottom of the first inning, throws 18 and 1/3 innings of the Cubs' 4-3 victory over the Robins at Chicago's West Side Park. 'Zip,' establishing the major league record for the longest relief stint in one game, beats Brooklyn starter Jeff Pfeffer, who tosses a 19-inning complete game.|
|1941||In the Yankees' 8-7 loss to Chicago, Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak is extended to 30 straight games when his seventh-inning grounder takes a bad hop off Luke Appling's shoulder. The Yankee Clipper's fortunate hit also breaks the team's record for hits of 29 consecutive games, previously shared by Roger Peckinpaugh (1919) and Earle Combs (1931).|
|1942||During the second game of a twin bill in Boston, Paul Waner, standing on first base, gestures to the official scorer, Jerry Moore of the Boston Globe, not to credit him with a hit on the ground ball in the hole that was knocked down by Reds shortstop Eddie Joost. Big Poison doesn't want a questionable roller to be his historic 3000th hit, which the Braves right-fielder will collect with a clean single after tomorrow's off day.|
|1960||Ted Williams becomes the fourth major leaguer to hit 500 career home runs when he goes deep off the Tribe's moundsman Wayne Hawkins. 'Teddy Ballgame's' two-run blast proves to be the difference when the Red Sox beat the Indians at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium, 3-1.|
|1962||In a play indicative of the struggling Mets, first baseman Marv Throneberry's apparent first-inning triple becomes an out on an appeal play for missing second base in an 8-7 loss to the Cubs at the Polo Grounds. According to legend, when New York manager Casey Stengel questions the call, he is told by an umpire, "Don't bother arguing, Casey, he missed first base, too."|
|1974||After completing the first 1000 games in franchise history with a winning percentage of .332, the Mets compile a 517-482-1 record in their next thousand contests. During the span, including Tom Seaver winning 12% of the team's victories, New York wins two National League pennants and a World championship.|
|1978||The crowd at Yankee Stadium initiates a new baseball tradition when they begin to rhythmically clap each time there are two strikes on the batter, inspired by Ron Guidry's 18-strikeout performance, establishing a new American League mark for southpaws. The left-hander's performance in the 4-0 victory over the Angels will lead the team's television announcer, Phil Rizzuto, to coin a new nickname, referring to the Lafayette native as 'Louisiana Lightning.'
|1980||At Cleveland Stadium, the Indians temporarily closed a 10,500 bleachers seats due to rowdy fans, who pelted Milwaukee's outfielders Gorman Thomas and Sixto Lezcano with various objects during yesterday's 5-3 loss to the Brew Crew. The Tribe will reopen the section at the end of the month, putting tighter security and limiting the sale of beer.|
|1993||Baseball owners vote overwhelmingly, 26-2, in favor of expanding the playoffs for the first time since 1969. The new system, beginning in 1994, will double the number of teams that qualify for postseason play to eight by realigning each league to three divisions and adding two wild-card teams.|
|2007||At the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Blue Jay Frank Thomas strokes his record-setting 244th round-tripper as a designated hitter in a 4-2 loss to Washington. The third-inning solo shot off Micah Bowie moves the 39 year-old veteran past Edgar Martinez for the most home runs hit by a DH in major league history.|
|2008||In the Mariners' 5-4 win over Florida at Safeco Field, Felix Hernandez strikes out the side on nine pitches to become the 13th pitcher in American League history to throw an immaculate inning. King Felix's fourth frame victims include Jeremy Hermida (swinging), Jorge Cantu (swinging), and Mike Jacobs (looking).
|2008||Cecil Cooper of the Astros and Ron Gardenhire of the Twins become the first two managers fined by Major League Baseball for failing to comply with the pace of game regulations. Last month, the MLB asked the teams to help enforce existing rules to decrease the time required to complete a big-league contest.|
|2009||At the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Astros catcher Ivan Rodriguez passes Carlton Fisk for the most games caught in a career when he makes his 2,227th appearance behind the plate. The veteran backstop, also known as Pudge, establishes the mark against the Rangers, the team he broke in with as a 19 year-old in 1991.
|2009||At Fenway Park, fans attending tonight's game will have an opportunity to win food and prizes, along with one lucky patron, sitting 500 feet from the plate, receiving a pair of tickets for a future contest. The Red Sox are treating their fans to celebrate the 500th straight sellout at home, a streak begun on May 15th, 2003, in which almost 18 million have seen the club compile a 326-173 record over the first 499 games of the record span.|
|2013||Max Scherzer becomes the second Tiger starter in the 104-year history of the franchise to begin the season at 10-0 when Detroit beats Baltimore at Comerica Park, 5-1. George Mullin, known as Wabash to his teammates, started the 1909 season with an 11-0 record, en route to a 29-8 record for the eventual American League champs.|
