The Brooklyn Tip Tops and Newark Peppers scheduled some very unusual doubleheaders for the 1915 season. They planned to play the morning game in one team's ballpark and the second game in the other team's ballpark. There were 3 of these types of doubleheaders scheduled. They were to take place on May 31st, July 5th, and September 6th. These doubleheaders were the second time in major league baseball history that two teams playd each other on the same day at different ballparks.
•On Memorial Day the morning game was played in Newark and the Peppers won 5-3. The afternoon game was won by the Tip Tops at home in Brooklyn 5-3.
•On July 5th, the Tip Tops and Peppers were scheduled to start the doubleheader in Brooklyn but that game was rained out. They were still able to go to New Jersey to play the afternoon game which was won by Newark.
