“DIARY OF A WINNER”

JOSH DEVORE

THE 1914 "MIRACLE" BRAVES

July 2, 1914
... The game between the Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies was called off due to the storm.  It will be played when the Phillies return to Boston in September.

President Gaffney announced that Jack Martin was traded to Philadelphia for Josh Devore.  Devore will always be remembered for the great catch he made as a member of the Giants in the 1912 World Series with the Red Sox, which temporarily saved the series for New York.

Gaffney also announced that he has signed several players to long term contracts.  He now has Butch Schmidt, Rabbit Maranville, Dick Rudolph, Hank Gowdy, Paul Strand, Bill James and Larry Gilbert signed to long term deals.
