Twenty-one-year old Lou Boudreau makes his Major League debut with the Cleveland Indians, taking over for Ken Keltner at third base in an 11-5 loss to the Detroit Tigers. The future seven-time American League All-Star, 1944 AL batting champion, 1948 AL Most Valuable Player, and Hall of Famer walked in two plate appearances in his only action of the 1938 season.
Boudreau would spend the final two months of the 1939 season with the Indians before becoming a regular in the dugout for eleven years, including his final nine seasons in Cleveland as a player-manager.
