“DIARY OF A WINNER”


 

WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
A sweep in New York

October 5, 1915 ... The game was called early today on account of rain.  So with the day off it appeared that many of the players took advantage of doing some shopping, as many were seen in the downtown shopping district.  In the evening, players went to the theatre.  Joe Wood and Ernie Shore traveled down to Philadelphia to see the Phillies take on Brooklyn.

BABE RUTH &
BILL CARRIGAN

October 6, 1915 ... The Red Sox looked like the champions today for the first time since beating the Tigers, by beating the Yankees twice in a doubleheader.  Out of the 18 innings played New York scored in but one, and there were two outs at the time, showing that the Sox were doing a good job defensively.  In the first game Carrigan sent out Ernie Shore and Dutch Leonard but refused to allow the Philly scouts any opportunity to size them up.  Shore pitched great, striking out the first three men.  Leonard, Woods and Mays finished up the game and all pitched effectively, winning out by a score of 2 to 0.  Babe Ruth pitched the second game and was there with his usual winning attitude.  The final score was 4 to 2.  The Red Sox will close the season tomorrow and take the evening train for Philadelphia.
