Toledo News-Bee, December 14, 1911:
During the world’s series between the Giants and Athletics, Billy Gould, a vaudeville artist, was working at a New York theater. Billy was anxious to keep tab on the game and asked an English actor to run out and get the score. The Britisher came back and said: “It’s now 100,000 to 30 in favor of the Giants.”
“Put it down in black and white,” bawled Gould, and the Englishman produced the following figures:
New York 100 000
Philadelphia 000 030
A fun story, but that line score never happened. Game Four may be the game being referenced; the Giants scored two in the first and Philadelphia scored three in the fourth.
