» August 8, 1953:
Yankee southpaws Whitey Ford and Bob Kuzava hurl 1-0 and 3-0 shutouts against the White Sox. Kuzava gives up only Bob Boyd's double in the ninth.
» June 2, 1958: Brooks Robinson, in a 2–1 Orioles loss to the Washington Senators, hits into the first triple play of a record four of his career. The Birds also lose hot-hitting Bob Nieman who, while standing on 3B, is hit by a line drive off the bat of Bob Boyd. It will slow him for two months.
» April 9, 1959: In the 5th against Washington, the Orioles become the first team in history to turn a triple play on Opening Day. Ed Fitzgerald lines out to Bob Boyd to start the tri-killing. Vice President Richard Nixon, a righthander, substitutes for President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who's away golfing, and watches the Senators win, 9–2. It's the first time since FDR died just before the 1945 opener that a chief executive was not on hand. Ramos loses his shutout when Gus Triandos hits a 2-run, 2-out home run in the 9th.
» January 24, 1961: The A's trade outfielders Whitey Herzog and Russ Snyder to the Orioles for IF Wayne Causey, P Jim Archer, OF Bob Boyd, and OF Al Pilarcik. Boyd, with the Orioles since 1956, leaves with a .301 average with the Birds, a team career mark that won't be topped this century.
