THE BEST SEASON IN BOSTON'S BASEBALL HISTORY

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

October 1, 1948 ... No game scheduled ... The Red Sox and Yankees will open up a two-game series that could decided the American League pennant, as the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians keeping the race on uncertain terms. Both the Red Sox and the Yankees are only one game behind Cleveland.

A three run Detroit rally in the ninth-inning upset the Indians 5 to 3. Former member of the Braves, Jimmy Outlaw, singled home the winning runs. If Cleveland wins tomorrow, the loser of the Red Sox and Yankees game will be eliminated from the race. Only bleacher and reserve seats will be available for the last game of the season on Sunday.

Dick O'Connell of Boston College was appointed the new assistant general manager of the parent club. He has done well for the Red Sox with their farm team in Lynn.
