Template:MLB yearly infobox-pre1969

The 1912 Cleveland Naps season was a season in American baseball. The Naps had two of the best hitters in the majors in Shoeless Joe Jackson and Nap Lajoie. Despite this, they ended up back in the second division, finishing in fifth place with a record of 75-78.

Regular season

  • April 20, 1912: The Naps played in the first ever game at Navin Field, later known as Tiger Stadium. The stadium opened the same day as Fenway Park.[1] It was supposed to have opened on April 18 (like Fenway Park) but it rained in both cities on that day.[2] Naps batter Shoeless Joe Jackson scored the first run in Tiger Stadium.[3]
