SPORTLIGHT

Aug. 16

1920 Cleveland shortstop Ray Chapman is hit in the head with a pitch by New York s Carl Mays. Chapman suffers a fractured skull and dies the next day. It s the only field fatality in major league history.

1924 Helen Wills Moody beats Molla Bjurstedt Mallory again, 6-1, 6-3, to win her second straight singles title at the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association championships.

1954 The first Sports Illustrated magazine is issued with a 25-cent price tag. The scene on the cover was a game at Milwaukee s County Stadium. Eddie Mathews of Braves was swinging with Wes Westrum catching and Augie Donatelli umpiring.

1980 Clint Galbraith drives Niatross to a world record for a one-mile pace with a time of 1:52 4-5 in a special invitation race at the State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, N.Y. Niatross eclipses the record he shared with Abercrombie by one-fifth of a second and wins the race by 21 lengths.

1989 Tom Drees pitches his third no-hitter of the season for Class AAA Vancouver, leading the Canadians over Las Vegas 5-0 in a seven-inning, first game of a doubleheader in the Pacific Coast League. Drees became the first pitcher in the PCL or the major leagues with three no-hitters in a year.

1992 Nick Price holds off a comeback bid by Nick Faldo with a 1-under 70 in the final round and captures his first major title with a three-stroke victory in the PGA national championship.

1995 Ethiopia s Haile Gebrselassie shatters Kenya s Moses Kiptanui s record in the 5,000 by nearly 11 seconds with a time of 12 minutes, 44.39 seconds at the Weltklasse meet in Zurich, Switzerland. Kiptanui smashes his world record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, becoming the first to break the eight-minute barrier with a time of 7:59.18.
