This day in baseball

On January 30, 1919, the Commission on Rules of the Major Leagues discussed the possible elimination of the intentional walk, but no action was taken.  The proposal was brought up again on February 9, 1920 by team owners, who wanted to promote scoring and attendance during the Dead Ball Era.  The measure never passed, however, and the intentional base-on-balls remains a part of the game today.
