A standing-room-only crowd of 84,587 at Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium witness the pennant-bound Indians sweep a doubleheader from the Yankees, 4 – 1 and 3 – 2. On this bright sunny day, over 12,000 fans are without seats and stand 10-11 rows deep behind the outfield fences as well as 3-5 rows deep in walkways. It established the record for the largest crowd to have ever watched a major-league baseball game.
