Milwaukee Sentinel, July 7, 1916:

HERZOG TOO EXTRAVAGANT FOR CINCY STOCKHOLDERS

Red Manager Stops at Best Hotels on Road and May Lose Job as Result

Let the denials fall where they may, Charles Herzog, present manager and shortstop for the [Cincinnati] National league club, is about to reture as leader of the Reds, and he will be succeeded by Hal Chase…

Herzog is dissatisfied with his present job because of the refusal of the Cincinnati stockholders to work in harmony with him. Herzog, a graduate of the {John?} McGraw school of managing a ball team, believes in living up to the name of {major?} league manager by traveling to and from the ball parks around the circuit in a taxicab, and eating at the best hotels, whether or not the rest of the team stops at a cheaper hotel…

This is far from agreeable to the Red stockholders, who say the club is not making enough money to warrant such a show of splendor.

Herzog came from the McGraw school of managing and also from the “ask forgiveness instead of permission” school, apparently. He was about to be relieved of his duties, but it wasn’t Chase who succeeded him. Instead, it was Christy Mathewson, who came over from the Giants in the trade that saw Herzog head back to New York. If only Christy had stuck around in Cincinnati instead of joining the army.

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-31-2016

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, May 31, 1916:

Manager Charles (Buck) Herzog of the Reds was struck on the head and rendered unconscious by a thrown ball shortly before [yesterday’s] game started. Ivy Wingo was warming up the pitchers and threw one a little wild which struck the manager on the side of his head as he was running to his position.

Herzog did not regain his senses for 15 minutes, the athlete recoving consciousness in the club house. He told the writer after the game that he would be able to play today. Bob Fisher played short.

“It was a million to one shot, doc. Million to one.”
