Box Score of the Week

Going real old school as the St. Louis Browns (who eventually became the Baltimore Orioles) took on the Detroit Tigers at the end of the 1934 season.


The Browns' Charley O'Leary was two weeks shy of his 59th birthday when he collected a hit and scored a run in this game. At age 58 years, 50 weeks, he became the oldest player to accomplish such feats in the same game. That record obviously still stands today.
