Offseason

Regular season

  • April 22: During a game against the Brooklyn Dodgers, Phillies manager Ben Chapman hurled racial slurs at Jackie Robinson. Commissioner Happy Chandler warned the franchise to keep the manager under control or face disciplinary action.[2] Of note, it was the first major league game in which Robinson committed an error.[3]
