This day in baseball: First AL game

The first ever American League game was played on April 24, 1901 at the Chicago Cricket Club in front of a crowd of 14,000.  The game, which only lasted ninety minutes, featured Roy Patterson of the White Sox, as they defeated the Cleveland Blues (now the Indians), 8-2.
