1995: The New York Yankees win the first postseason wild card berth in MLB history. The Yankees would end up losing their Division Series to the Seattle Mariners three games to two. The wild card rule was originally intended to go into effect for the 1994 playoffs, which were canceled because of the players' strike.

BOSTON -

New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has been suspended for 10 games for using pine tar to help him grip the ball.
    
The commissioner's office announced the penalty Thursday.
    
Pineda was ejected from Wednesday night's loss at Boston after umpires found the pine tar on his neck.
