GAME #6

Dickie Kerr had a 53-34 lifetime record.

Dickie Kerr guts out a tough one for the White Sox. Jake Daubert’s 1 out rbi triple in the 9th made it interesting for the Reds. But they were unable to get him home. The White Sox once again win the 1919 World Series Revisited, and there is no justice in the replay universe.

Reluctantly the MVP goes to Lefty Williams. 2-0, 0.90 in 20 IP was pretty dominant. Only 1 home run was hit in this series, and that by Reds’ pitcher Hod Eller.

Next up the Cleveland Indians take on the Brooklyn Robins in the 1920 World Series Revisited.

1919 World Series Revisited Reds vs White Sox

This is the infamous Black Sox Series. I’ve replayed this series 2 x before, and both times the White Sox destroyed the Reds. I’m going to give it one more shot, and hope for a Reds victory. The Reds won the 1919 World Series, which was a best of 9, in 8 games.

Chick Gandil is one scary looking dude, or is he a Ferengi? You decide.

1918 World Series Revisited Cubs vs Red Sox Games 3, 4, 5 & 6

 

GAME #3

Cubs Kick Away Win With 6 Errors

CharlieDealLOC.jpg

Charlie Deal led  NL 3rd baseman in fielding for 3 straight seasons.(1919-1921)

Les Mann did everything he could do to secure a Cub victory, he connected on a 3 run home run, as well as a bases loaded single to drive in all Cubs’ runs. But 6 walks by starter Hippo Vaughn, and 4 errors by 3rd baseman Charlie Deal were too much for the Cubs to overcome, as they lost this game 6-5.

GAME #4

Ruth Struggles Early As Cubs Win By 1

Les Mann connected for his 2nd home run of the series, a 2 run blast off Babe Ruth in the 1st inning leading the Cubs to a game 4 victory and a tie in this best of 7 series. Ruth held the Cubs scoreless over the last 5 innings, but Cub reliever Speed Martin tossed 3 no hit innings for the save.

Christmas Revisited

 

A repost from Christmas Past:

merrychristmaswithtree

My Father sang in several local choral groups when I was growing up, and one of them would spend the last Saturday before Christmas singing carols at the local hospitals and nursing homes. A wonderful Holiday tradition if there ever was one.

When I turned five, my father asked my brother Mike, who was a year older than me, if we wanted to go with him and his choral group to sing carols. Being the fine upstanding Irish Catholic children that we were, we said no. There was no way we were going to spend the Saturday before Christmas getting dragged around with a bunch of old people, singing some stupid carols to sick people and invalids. Us Irish Catholic adolescents didn’t know the meaning of the word altruism.

My Father, not only had a fine Irish tenor voice, but he was also persistent, so he asked my brother and I every year to go with him, and every year we politely told him to stick it. In 1968, when I was 10 my brother Mike said that we should probably go caroling  just once, then Dad would probably stop asking us, especially after he heard us sing. My voice has been compared to Andy Williams………..choking on a piece of food, so I was pretty sure I wouldn’t get asked again.

When Saturday rolled around my brother got “sick” and said he couldn’t go. So I had to go alone. That wasn’t the 1st time my brother screwed me, but it was one of his best efforts.

So little 10 year old Kevin got to go caroling while  wearing a hand-me-down winter coat, with the mittens on a string, buckle boots, with a broken buckle on each boot, and my sister’s woolen hat, because mine had mysteriously disappeared. Oh Joy To The World!!!!

We went to the 1st nursing home, I put my best Christmas pout on, refused to sing a single carol, and wondered if Santa would count this against me. After my inglorious performance we were ushered over to the biggest table of Christmas goodies I had ever seen. Cookies, candy, pie, soda, cake, did I mention the cookies. All for me, bless us all everyone. I started chowing down, my misery forgotten, stuffing my face as well as my pockets, it was truly a Christmas miracle.

goodies

My Father had to drag me away from my yuletide orgy, to go talk to some of the residents of the nursing home. “What…..are you crazy……I don’t like old people….I like cookies. Get your hands off me man!!” Next thing I know I’ve got some blue-haired old lady whose breath smelled like moth balls squeezing my cheeks and telling me how cute I was. Then she reaches into her big old lady purse and tells me she has something for me. She pulls out an old kleenex with a partially sucked mint stuck to it. I’m starting to get the dry heaves, and looking for the nearest exit, when she hands me a quarter. A QUARTER…….I had heard about these things called quarters, but I had never actually touched one. I was so shocked I hadn’t realized that I had moved on to the next blue-haired old lady who was squeezing my cheeks and also telling me how cute I was, while pressing a dime in my hand. It was then that I realized……. I was cute. I am the most adorable blonde-haired 10 year old on the planet. Everybody must recognize the glory that is me and give me money. I started working the room, shaking hands, readily offering one of my adorable cheeks for a squeeze, while raking in the cash. My Father had to drag me to the car. “I can’t leave I screamed, there are still some people who haven’t squeezed my precious 10 year old cheeks. Get your hands off me man!!!!!”

But everything was fine, because we were heading for another nursing home. This time I was ready. As soon as we walked into the dining room where we were going to sing I scoped out the room. Table full of Christmas goodies….check. Room full of senior citizens with quarters to burn…..check. A thousand watt smile from an adorable 1o year old…..check.

This time I sang every carol with all the passion of a winged cherubim sent from heaven. When we finished, I ran to the goodie table, buckle boots clanging, and gorged myself on every tasty treat. I then began to work the room. “Why yes…I am the cutest thing you ever saw. A quarter for me?……Merry Christmas. I wouldn’t say I sang like an angel, but thank you anyway. I wish I had a grandmother like you.”…….cha-ching!!!

When it was all said and done, I had pocketed a cool $7.00 by the end of the day,( a princely sum back then) and eaten a ton of sugary goodness. Best Christmas ever. It was a wonderful life. “Merry Christmas Bedford Falls, Merry Christmas Mr. Potter. Teacher says, every time a bell rings I get a quarter. Who’s sick now Mike?”……..Cha-Ching!!!!

Fast forward 12 months, Christmas 1969. I couldn’t wait to go caroling. If I was the cutest 10 year old on the planet, then imagine how much cuter I got in a year. I made sure I memorized the words to all the carols, and I fasted for 3 days so I’d be able to eat more yuletide goodies. I did cheek exorcises to prepare for all the squeezing. I wore my coat with the big pockets to fit all the money I was going to get, and I ditched the buckle boots, I felt they were cramping my cuteness.

We walked into the 1st nursing home, and I really laid on the charm. “Hi, Merry Christmas, everybody pay attention to me, I’m about to wow you with my golden pipes.” We sang about a dozen carols, I lit up the room with my smile, and then we left……….”Wait, where are we going?…. what about the goodies? What about the money? These people deserve to gaze upon the wonder that is me, and squeeze these adorable cheeks. What the heck is going on?”

We made about 10 more stops, and not one cookie passed through my lips, not one cheek was squeezed, not one penny was pressed into my little hand. Someone please wake me up from this nightmare!!!

“Clarence! Clarence! Help me, Clarence! Get me back! Get me back.  It’s a wonderful life, my ass!!!” Worst Christmas ever.

1918 World Series Revisited Red Sox vs Cubs Games 1 & 2

GAME #1

Cubs Rally On Mann’s Big Hit

Les Mann coached the Indiana Hoosiers men’s basketball team for 2 seasons.

Heading into the last of the 8th the Cubs trailed 2-1 to with Babe Ruth on the mound. Their only run so far was an unearned run in the 1st, and they had managed just 4 singles against the Bambino.

Cubs’ pitcher Hippo Vaughn led off the inning with a single,(never a good sign), and Ruth proceeded to walk lead off hitter Max Flack.( never a good sign). Charlie Hollocher singled to load the bases, and Cubs’ left fielder Les Mann gapped a double to clear the bases, putting the Cubs up 4-2. A sac fly ended the scoring.

The Red Sox loaded the bases in the 9th, but Harry Hooper grounded out to end the game.

GAME #2

Extra Innings Give Sox The Win.

 

  On May 30, 1922, between the games of a doubleheader between the Cardinals and the Cubs, Max Flack was traded to the Cardinals for Cliff Heathcote. Both men appeared in both games that day.

Max Flack hit a solo home run in the 8th to tie the score at 1-1. Extra innings followed.

The Cubs had the potential winning run thrown out at the plate in the 9th. They had the bases loaded in the 1oth and 12th inning, and failed to score.  With the bases loaded in the 14th, Dode Paskert grounded into a game ending double play.

The Red Sox won the game with 2 runs in the top of the 14th, thanks to a throwing error by 2nd baseman Charlie Pick.

This series is tied at 1-1.

1918 World Series Revisited Red Sox vs Cubs

Because of WWI the season was cut short, and ended on September 2, 1918. The World Series featuring the Boston Red Sox against the Chicago Cubs started on Sept 5.

red sox

The 75-51 Red Sox finished 2.5 games up on the Cleveland Indians. The Red Sox used the newly acquired Stuffy McInnis, Wally Schang, and Bullet Joe Bush from the Athletics, and the now sometime outfielder Babe Ruth(13-7, 2.22, .300, 11 home runs) to capture their 5th American League Pennant overall, and their 3rd in the last 4 seasons. Ruth’s 11 home runs tied Tillie walker for the AL lead. This was the 1st of his 12 home run titles.

cubs

The 84-45 Cubs easily outdistanced the Giants by 10.5 games in the NL. Fred Merkle and Max Flack led the offense, while Hippo Vaughn’s league leading 22 wins, and 1.74 ERA anchored the pitching.

In the 1918 World series the Red Sox beat the Cubs in 6 games. Babe Ruth tossed a 6 hit shutout in Game 1, and Lefty Tyler answered back with his own 6 hitter for the Cubs in Game #2. Carl Mays beat Hippo Vaughn in Game 3 by a score of 2-1, and Ruth won Game 4, helping his own cause with a 2 run triple in the 4th inning.

Hippo Vaughn tossed his 3rd CG of the Series in Game #5, this time getting the 3-0 win.

The Red Sox won the deciding game thanks to Cubs right fielder Max Flack’s error allowing 2 runs to score in the 3rd inning. 

In one of the lowest scoring World Series the Red Sox hit just .186 while scoring just 9 runs, while the Cubs hit a blistering .218, scoring 10 runs. This was the last World Series where neither team hit a home run. The Red Sox go into a World Series slump after this, not winning their next Championship until 2004.

1917 World Series Revisited White Sox vs Giants Game #7

10/16/1917 @ Polo Grounds

Eddie Cicotte vs Ferdie Schupp

Giants Win Their 3rd World Series Revisited Title

Did Eddie Cicotte lay down in this game? Did the online gamblers get to Cicotte? It sure looked like it.

The 1st 5 Giant batters reached base via 3 singles and 2 doubles. Eddie Cicotte managed to get just 2 outs while giving up 6 runs before being removed in the 1st inning. That was it for the Black Sox,  White Sox, as the Giants easily won this game, capturing their 3rd World Series Revisited Championship.

This is the 15th World Series replay so far and just the 3rd that went to 7 games. The 1st since the 1904 World Series Revisited. Not counting the 1904 World Series Revisited(There was no 1904 World Series) this is just the 2nd Series that had a different outcome than the actual World Series. Boston beat the Pirates in the 1903 Series, and now this one.  I’m surprised, I would have thought there would have been more.

5 home runs were hit in this Series, a World Series Revisited record. The Giants only out hit the White Sox, .282-.264. Their OB% of .341 was .39 better than the Sox. The Black Sox on this team, performed almost identical to their 1919 counterparts. Joe Jackson(.364) and Buck Weaver(.385) hit very well. While Happy Felsch, Chick Gandil, Swede Risberg, and Fred McMullin combined to hit .140 with no extra base hits.

I was leaning toward Heinie Zimmerman for MVP, but he was banned from baseball for throwing games, so I went with Bennie Kauff instead. He hit an even .400, and led all batters with a .500 OB%.

Next up the Boston Red Sox take on the Chicago Cubs..

1917 World Series Revisited White Sox Vs Giants Games 5 & 6

 

10/13/1917 @ Comiskey Park

Slim Salee vs Reb Russell

Shano Collins Stays Hot As Sox Win Game 5

Jim Thorpe played 6 seasons and finished with a .252 average.

Shano Collins had 3 hits, 2 doubles and a triple, giving him 12 hits for the series to lead the White Sox to an easy 8-2 victory. Reb Russell pitched a complete game for the win.

In the actual 1917 World Series, Jim Thorpe started in right field for the Giants, but was replaced before coming to bat. We rectified that slight in the World Series Revisited. Thorpe held his own, getting on base 3 times, with a walk, while banging out 2 hits including a double.

Red Faber vs Ferdie Schupp

Zimmerman Powers Giants Past White Sox

Heinie Zimmerman.jpg

Zimmerman was suspended by the Giants in 1919 due to a game fixing allegation. He was later banned by Commissioner Landis. It is rumored that Zimmerman may have laid down for money in the 1917 World Series. He hit just .120 in that Series.

Heinie Zimmerman had 3 hits, including a triple, and a homerun, while driving in 4 runs as the Giants won easily to tie this Series at 2 games. Ferdie Schupp hit a solo home run in the 6th inning for the Giants. The 1st pitcher to hit a home run in the World Series Revisited. Jim Bagby of the 1920 Cleveland Indians was the 1st pitcher to hit a home run in the actual World Series. He hit a 3 run home run off Burleigh Grimes in the 4th inning of Game 5.

1917 World Series Revisited NY Giants vs Chicago White Sox Games 1 & 2

10/6/1917 @ Comiskey Park

Slim Sallee vs Eddie Cicotte

Sallee Leads Giants To Game 1 Victory

Slim Sallee’s 106 victories with the St. Louis Cardinals is 8th best for that franchise.

Slim Salee tossed a complete game, albeit an 11 hit complete game, but he also banged out 4 hits of his own as the Giants won Game #1 by a score of 5-4.

With 2 outs and 2 runners on in the Giant 1st, Dave Robertson stroked a 2 run double to give the Giants an early lead. The White Sox answered back in the 2nd. 5 singles and a walk produced just 3 runs, as Ray Schalk grounded into a double play to minimize the damage.

The score stood at 3-2 until the 8th, when Slim Sallee stroked his 4th hit of the day with 2 outs in the inning. After a walk Sallee scored the tying run on a Buck Herzog single. Walter Holke’s 2 out single in the 9th drove in Art Fletcher with the game winner.
