I don't know if many of you know that for a very long time, you were not allowed to play baseball on Sunday. The first MLB game on a Sunday was in 1917 in New York. John Mcgraw and starting pitcher Christy Mathewson were both arrested at the conclusion of the game. By 1919 every team but the two in Philadelphia were allowed to play on Sunday. It was 1931 before the laws were changed to allow them to play on Sunday.
