February 3 in Tigers and mlb history:

1886: Albert Spalding begins a sporting goods company with $800. He will become the manufacturer of the first official baseball as well as the tennis ball, basketball, golf ball, and football.

1920: A meeting in Kansas City results in the birth of the Negro National League. Chicago American Giants owner Rube Foster spearheads the formation of the league, which will consist of eight franchises: Chicago Giants, Cuban Stars, Dayton Marcos, Detroit Stars, Indianapolis ABCs, Chicago American Giants, Kansas City Monarchs and St. Louis Giants.
1920: The Detroit Stars become a charter member of the new Negro National League.

1942: Major League owners hold a meeting to discuss regulations to be used during World War II. The owners decide to have each team play 14 night games, except for the Washington Senators, who will be permitted 21 games under the lights at Griffith Stadium. Two All-Star Games will be played, one with a military All-Star team. Curfews are set for night games with no inning to start after 12:50 A.M.

1975: Billy Herman, Earl Averill and Bucky Harris are selected for the Hall of Fame by the Special Veterans Committee.

1976: The St. Louis Cardinals purchased Tom Walker from the Detroit Tigers.

1977: The Special Committee on the Negro Leagues elects Martin Dihigo and shortstop Pop Lloyd to the Hall of Fame. Dihigo, a dominant pitcher born in Cuba, also was a infielder and outfielder from 1923 to 1945. Lloyd, a standout shortstop and dangerous hitter, played in the Negro Leagues from 1906 to 1932.

1993: The Detroit Tigers signed Luis Garcia as an amateur free agent.

From 1907 through 1919, Ty Cobb led the American League in batting 12 times. He hit .371 in the season he didn't win.
Tris Speaker batted .383 Cobb finished second.
