1920: The Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates play in the third, and last, triple-header in MLB history. The Reds won two of the three games. Triple headers are now prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement, except when the first game is the conclusion of a game suspended from a prior date.
