THE BEST SEASON IN BOSTON'S BASEBALL HISTORY

BOSTON RED SOX ...
THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO, PART 3
A
SUBWAY SERIES DISAPPEARS ...

June 9, 1948 ... Hundreds of Red Sox fans were disappointed when today's scheduled game was called off at noon time. Converging upon Fenway Park in hordes, until game time at 2 o'clock, the faithful baseball fans moved their way to the ticket windows, before being convinced that the "No Game" sign hung outside the park, meant just that.

Low temperatures and wet grounds added up the official postponement. It is true the Red Sox had played on days worse than this. The possibility of the doubleheader tomorrow was discarded until one of the Indians' visits later this season.

The ballplayers worked out at the ballpark in spite of the inclement weather and the entire Red Sox club had lengthy meeting with manager Joe McCarthy after the workout.
