AP via Spartanburg Herald, October 27, 1911:
Philadelphia, Oct. 26—Hail! Philadelphia Athletics, Champions of the world for the second successive year.
In an exhibition of batting seldom seen in a premier baseball series, the American league team this afternoon defeated New York in the sixth game of the set by the overwhelming score of 13 to 2…It was more than a mere defeat for the giants [sic], it was a rout.
When the game was over that part of the crowd which did not leave the ground before the game was ended remained and held a celebration. They cheered the players, who had dived under the grand stand the instant the last man was out and gave three cheers for Connie Mack.
Hip hip hooray!
