The first edition of the Mississippi State (A&M then) basketball team, coached by T.H. Werner (the pimp in the top right of the photo) would start off the inaugural campaign in 1908 red hot, winning their first five games against heavy competition such as the Brownsville Athletic Club and the College of Memphis. Unfortunately, they would go into a tailspin, losing their last five games to teams like LSU, Tulane and the New Orleans YMCA. But, you know, the jerseys were cool! I wonder if back then people gathered 'round for the great jersey unveiling. Something tells me... probably not. (photo courtesy of MSU / MSU Media Relations, Media Guide 2010-11, pg. 177)

Snopes debunks a 1908 myth.

"In late September [1908] the third team in the National League race, the Pirates, was playing the Cubs. In the ninth inning, with Chicago ahead 2-0 and the visiting Pirates at bat with the bases loaded, second baseman Ed Abbaticchio hit a rocket down the right-field line. [Umpire Hank] O'Day ruled it foul, the Cubs won the game, and went on to win the pennant by one game over the Pirates as well as taking the playoff from the Giants. Several months later, though, a woman fan brought a lawsuit to court, alleging injury suffered when she was struck by Abbaticchio's smash, an occurrence attested to in sworn statements by various witnesses. But the court ending up ruling against her -- not because her story wasn't believed, but because it was conclusively established that she had been sitting in fair territory at the time."
