THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, June 7, 1934
* Myril Hoag 6 hits (singles) in 1 game
* New York Yankees
The sport's section (page 32) has a 2 column heading: "Yanks Break Even With Red Sox, But Lose League Lead to Tigers" with subhead: "Hoag Equals Circuit Record by Smashing 6 Singles in Row in Opener" and photo of Hoag. (see) First report coverage on Myril Hoag becoming the 1st New York Yankee to have 6 hits in one 9 inning game. This record was held until Johnny Damon tied it in 2008. All of Hoag hits were singles which is a MLB record for a 9 inning game. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
