I’ll admit it. I panicked slightly when I remembered that I had the 10am slot and couldn’t think of anything to write about. So I did what I usually do. I went to baseball-reference.com, I went to the box scores and looked at a year that ends in a 0 or 5 and hoped that the Yankees 1) played a game or 2) won a game.
But, this time was different. When I looked at 1915 – because I thought going back 100 years would be cool – I saw that the Yankees had lost and instead of closing out and trying another year, I looked at the box score.
This is what I found:
Here are some interesting nuggets of information from that game:
- The game was played at the Polo Grounds.
- Cobb was 3-5 with a home run, a stolen base, two runs scored and two RBI.
