History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

On April 26th, the 1914 Kansas City Packers defeated the Chicago Chi-Feds, 12-4 in a game played at Weeghman Park - the future Wrigley Field. In the game, three Packers players connect for their first big league homer: Duke Kenworthy, Art Kruger and John Potts. The feat will not be matched until June 24, 2017, when the Oakland Athletics will pull it off.
