Homer Thompson from the Chronology
Apr 28, 1929 - The Red Sox play the first Sunday game in Boston history at Braves Field losing to the A's 7-3. Protests by a few members of a nearby church are the reason for the shift from Fenway. The Braves rained out of their scheduled Sunday game on April 21 will play their first Sunday home game on May 5. Starter Red Ruffing gives up 4 runs in the 6th including consecutive homers by Miller and Dykes. When Milt Gaston takes over in the 7th he pitches to his brother Alex the 2nd brother battery in AL history: Tommy and Homer Thompson one game in 1912 for the Yankees were the first.
Oct 5, 1912 - The Yankees also play their last game at their field Hilltop Park beating the Senators 8-6 on the strength of Hal Chase's 3-run HR in the 8th and another homer by Jack Lelivelt. The win is the first in 10 games for last-place New York (50-102). Next year the team will play at the Polo Grounds. Homer Thompson in his only game in the majors is behind the plate for New York though he does not make a plate appearance; the last of 4 hurlers is his brother Tommy making them the first brother battery in AL history. Coach Nick Altrock in his first appearance in 3 years is the losing pitcher.
